Europe 7 – Alliances’ presentation

EU7 leaders planning the round

Hello community players,

The Europe 7 server, speed 1, started on September 30, 2021. After one month, here is some data: 

18.388 accounts were created, it’s an overcrowded server! It should allow players to have battles and reveal their full military and tactical potential. Their nerves will be put to the test!

Have a look at the map:

As you see, no time to dream, action will be everywhere!

Some leaders agreed to present their alliance with a few words, I asked them some questions to get a frame, but they are free to speak about what they want:

Hello, Can you briefly introduce yourself to the Travian community?   What is the name of your alliance?

Why did you decide to go with your group on this Europe 7?  Have you ever played on a server with the new features of version 4.6? 

A quick note for the other players on this server?

How was the colonization of the map for your alliance? How do you estimate the relationship between the number of accounts created and the map’s size and the number of croppers?

Two questions to a non-golder player in your alliance or to a player who spends less than 200 golds per month: You who do not use golds or just a few golds, how did you feel your 2nd village spawned compared to the rest of your alliance? Do you think the quest system is an advantage or a disadvantage?

Let us enjoy their answers:

Hello, Can you briefly introduce yourself to the Travian community? What is the name of your alliance?

Why did you decide to go with your group on this Europe 7? Have you ever played on a server with the new features of version 4.6?

Nice to meet you, My name is Stefan, our ally name is Graffiti. We decided to play here because autumn/winter servers are always more active and in winter everyone stays more at home and has time for games. I played some test servers, but only until the second village.

A quick note for the other players on this server?

Quick note, I see really strong coalitions/players and a lot of players from finals. It is going to be an interesting server with a lot of fireworks, especially with those big number of registered accounts (currently 5500 and they will probably be over 8000) on this small map.

How was the colonisation of the map for your alliance? 

I would say 4/10, 9-10 guys bounced, some of them bounced 2 or 3 times. Not great, not terrible

How do you estimate the relationship between the number of accounts created and the map’s size and the number of croppers?

Map size is not enough for that amount of players, IMO. I’m okay with the number of croppers. If everybody wants to play on 100%+ crop, you can go play on Asia/Arabia servers with 500 people. It’s always good to have a big cropper, but on close/mid-range fights (which almost everyone will face this server), having a big crop is not that much important.

Pretty strong server with a lot of decent players. I expect melee fights in every quadrant all server long.

Two questions to a non-golder player in your alliance or to a player who spends less than 200 golds per month: You who do not use golds or just a few golds, how did you feel your 2nd village spawned compared to the rest of your alliance? Do you think the quest system is an advantage or a disadvantage?

It doesn’t matter how much gold you play monthly (20-200-2000-20000) if you don’t have oases close to your spawn. The problem TG will face is that decent players will start registering new and new accounts until they get a good spawn. Probably TG needs to work on some spawn balance.

Have a good and smiley day.

North East quad: Alliance Tag: Szab – Alliance Name: Szabaton

Alliance Tag: Szab - Alliance Name: Szabaton

Hello,

Can you briefly introduce yourself to the Travian community? My usual nickname is Bakusensey, I first tried Travian when I was very young (about 8 years old), and returned to the game about 5 years ago. We founded the alliance with my father.

What is the name of your alliance? Szabaton

Why did you decide to go with your group on this Europe 7? I have other fun things to do over the summer, but on the other hand, I don’t want the server to last until my exams in June. So the timing is appropriate.

Have you ever played on a server with the new features of version 4.6?   Not really, but I tried settling the fastest second village a few times.

A quick note for the other players on this server?   Have fun!

Alliance Tag: U L - Alliance Name: UollasL

Hello,
Can you briefly introduce yourself to the Travian community?
My name is Ludovico, I’m from Italy and I play Travian sometimes. Not much and usually only on the weekend.

What is the name of your alliance?
UollasL, now U L

Why did you decide to go with your group on this Europe 7?
Our meta was looking for a challenging server with many players and we found out that eu7 was the right server for us.

Have you ever played on a server with the new features of version 4.6?
This is the first time I actively play a gameworld running this version. To be honest, I don’t like it, it’s quite unfair and too much is left to the luck. A good spawn will do 80% of the work.

A quick note for the other players on this server?
I’m sure it will be a funny server, but I hope other players will go easy on us. We are old people and we like to sleep.

North West: Alliance Tag: ULTRA – Alliance Name: ULTRA

Alliance Tag: ULTRA - Alliance Name: ULTRA

Hello, Can you briefly introduce yourself to the Travian community?   What is the name of your alliance?

My name is Domagoj and I’m from Croatia like most of my allies, but I would prefer if you called me Malcolm in this stuff.

Our alliance is named ULTRA because it was the name in the last Balkan server we played after a lot of different allies provided a few players each and we randomly decided ultra, but most of my allies play this for years and we have a common history, both fighting and cooperating trough years on Croatian servers.

Why did you decide to go with your group on this Europe 7?  Have you ever played on a server with the new features of version 4.6? A quick note for the other players on this server?

This is the 1st official time we play this version, a few of us did some early game testing during summer but that is about it.

My quick note to the other players here is that I hope we will have an interesting server in fair play, and every member and ally will be having fun at it.

How was the colonization of the map for your alliance? How do you estimate the relationship between the number of accounts created and the map’s size and the number of croppers?

Two questions to a non-golder player in your alliance or to a player who spends less than 200 golds per month: You who do not use golds or just a few golds, how did you feel your 2nd village spawned compared to the rest of your alliance? Do you think the quest system is an advantage or a disadvantage?

The colonization was a bit of a challenge considering the fact we registered early and a lot of allies on our quad registered later so we had to think it through where to exactly send our people, but overall for our goals, we took some good positions and I expect a lot of fighting.

We personally believe this map is too small for this number of players, croppers especially, we feel like we don’t actually notice the change in the number of croppers being added, but that could be relevant to the number of players so… 

A little word for other players? Well we noticed a few insults and similar tools in places where they should not be so my “advice” is to keep it under control, banter and stuff is preferred but keep out the insults, after all, each player is representing his ally so….keep that in mind, have fun.

My advice for future interviews would be to keep them going, it’s a positive approach to the community where we all spend both a lot of time and money, and its refreshing to see this kinda stuff.

After a few days of server, everyone had the same conclusion, the game has gained a rapid early game development where the biggest part is being able to gold and keep your hero alive or manipulate points with books. As much we do appreciate people who use these to be rewarded with better positions, but we also feel a bit sad for non-golders that are left with 6 and 7c capitals due to really slow 1st villa development. If Travian did some changes for example book having 24h cooldowns it would bring more tactic and less gold spending early game so it would give a better balance between hard Golders and non-golders.

Thank you for the interview

P.S.zlatko the best! 

Cheers Malcolm

They conquered all corners of the map: Alliance Tag: BB – Alliance Name: Barcodebrothers

Alliance Tag: BB - Alliance Name: Barcodebrothers

Can you briefly introduce yourself to the Travian community? My name is Antti, I’m 29yo, I live in Finland with my wife and two kids. Studying to become a Cultural Manager and have worked as a nurse and semi-professional musician for years. Played Travian since 2007 when Fi domains started. I´ve always enjoyed the game itself, maybe even more than the social aspect, but these days I think it is equally both of these factors that still make me play this game.

What is the name of your alliance? We do not have a common name that could be linked to us. We were originally a Finnish group, although after Nordics merged we started to become more international, and now over half of our player base is from other countries. We voted for a theme (or no theme) before every round and go with what wins. We´ve had this particular “Barcode Brothers” idea for several years already, but now it had the majority behind it and we thought it would be a good time to try it out.

Why did you decide to go with your group on this Europe 7? I believe we were the first group that announced to start this server. EU6 was too early and we did not want to wait for EU8. The timing was just good for us. Then we started promoting it to others and hoped people would follow and seems it turned out quite well.

Have you ever played on a server with the new features of version 4.6?  We have done some test runs, but no, not a full server.

A quick note for the other players on this server?  We hope everyone will have some fun while playing. Remember not to take it too seriously, it is a game after all and we play it to have fun with friends!

South West: Alliance Tag: MC – Alliance Name: Master Chef

Alliance Tag: MC - Alliance Name: Master Chef

Briefly about us: We are a bunch of old players who have mostly been playing together at anglo 1/2 and com 2/3. I myself have been playing since 2007. We have been in alliances such as BAR, Disney, GoW, and AFS. We all originate from GUNNERS and that’s also where we come from recently and probably got our rumor from.

We did fight IKEA in com2 recently and it’s also them who made us come here again, hyping this server up.

Regarding notes, to other alliances, I just want to say that we will do what it takes and it won’t be beautiful.

We are not here to get popular.

1/ I would say it was kinda good. We got some Balkan’s settled around us and some other stuff but nothing serious really. We are in a perfect position to fight in every direction.

2/ We prefer a small map so that’s fine. However, we can agree that there is a bit too few good croppers as many have said before. But it mostly benefits us since we use a lot more techs than the others and can ease lock their oases with a nice vacation mode.

3/ Not really.

4/ Focus on the drama and the dirty gameplays. That’s what people want to read more about.

5/ I think I did very well compared to the rest of my alliance even though I’m a non-golder, mostly coz I’m a superior food to them, but yeah, the quest system definitely helped since it keeps giving out free res and exp which leads to more res // Vegemite. Otherwise, we don’t accept non-golders in general. If they can’t add gold themself we ask someone else in the ally to sponsor them.

South West: Alliance Tag: Сокол – Alliance Name: Сокол

Alliance Tag: Сокол - Alliance Name: Сокол

Hello, players from Europe7.

My name is Yaroslav, I’m from Ukraine. Account Sokil.
Our alliance is named Сокол, in translated from Russian Falcon. We have been playing together for 4 years. In our landing ~50 players from Russia, Ukraine, Belarus (Eastern Europe).

We decided to go with my group on EU 7 because we always go on the autumn server, in September.

This is our first server with new features of version 4.6, so our start was unsuccessful, but we will never give up.

We expect an interesting game from all teams, from ourselves we will show the maximum.

1. With the new version of the game it was difficult, especially for beginners, it repulses them.

2. With so many field registrations very few croppers.

3. Let’s enlarge the map

4. More battles reports and maps from Getter tools and analysis.

A big thanks to those leaders who took in their in-game time to share to Travian community 🙂

I hope you enjoy this first EUROPE 7 follow-up.

See you soon

Cheers
