Legends on Tour 2020 Summit ~ Important Changes & Winners

Dear community,

The voting phase is over. Votes have been counted and the ambassadors that will represent the different communities have been chosen. We want to thank you all for participating, both by sending an application, and for voting your favorite candidate to represent our domain.

Below you can see the final voting statistics:

Also BlackBlade will join as Ambassador for the Anglosphere domain –> more information here.

After close consultation with the Game Development team, the Game Center and the Marketing Department, we had to make the difficult decision of postponing the Legends on Tour 2020 Summit to October due to the current Coronavirus-situation.

Since we spent the past four months preparing the event we are genuinely upset and disappointed for not being able to host the summit in May, but due to the current situation and the uncertainty regarding the further development of the epidemy, we prefer to postpone the event.

We have also decided that we still want to start working already with the Ambassador group, but in a different way.

Therefore, next week all the newly-elected Ambassadors will be contacted and all details will be provided, including special access to the Forum. This way they can already start creating discussions threads to collect different topics.

To summarize, the plan is to kick-start the event exactly as it was planned. We will invite the new Ambassadors to the Slack Workspace created for the 2019 Ambassadors. Together with the old Ambassadors, they will start collecting topics with the support of the entire community for the Legends on Tour Summit.

We will prioritize the topics and split them into categories, so that we can already start discussing in monthly voice webinars with the Game Design and Game Development team.

Full notes of these meetings and all the decisions made will be disclosed with the community.

We are very sorry for this sudden change of plan, even though it doesn’t fully depend on us. We really hope the Ambassadors will be able to join us in October.

Once again, congratulations for your election,

Your Travian: Legends Team

Smartphone Optimization ~ Update

By now I guess you might be bored to hear that we are working on optimizing the game for mobile browsers.

Well, lately we have done a big step in this direction and today we are very happy to share a video with you.

This is a preliminary version of how the game could look like in the future on your smartphone, when using Google Chrome.

In the upcoming weeks, as soon as the feature is stable enough, it will be activated on 3 Codex Victoria game worlds: COM, FR and IT and on the PTR.

In the login page, if you enter the game via smartphone using Google Chrome as browser, you will be able to decide whether to use this version or the standard mobile version.

We will collect your feedback on usability and, if everything looks stable and cool, we will activate this feature on all the game worlds which are running on the 4.5 version.

We hope this is a step in the right direction and we can’t wait to hear your feedback!
