In which phase of the game do you conquer a Wonder of the World village? What does the defense on the Natar’s World of Wonder village depend on? How do you best prepare for the WW-construction with your alliance? In this episode of Ask Travian, we answer your questions about the Wonder of the World!

We asked a few questions to the mind behind those enigmatic riddles: Ameno (she doesn’t need an introduction by now, but just in case you don’t know her, you can read her interview here). Read More

Tournament Finals 2018 ~ War Diaries Week 14: One week to end-game

There’s only one week left before the end-game phase starts, and I decided to have a look at the fourth quadrant.

NorthWest is shared between Dacia (lilac), Turkey NW (red) and Germany (green). Turkey has more wings out in the boonies that aren’t visible on this map but you can see the full maps in my Corner together with interviews. The amazing amount of hammers that gangster from HYPE! has achieved to built is stunning – at least I believe I got reports on all of them.

Dacia is the biggest meta in this quadrant, 800 accounts. Turkey is down to 300 accounts and  Germany that is too small to be called a meta with 90 accounts still have taken a good part of it.

It is Dacia that will participate in the endgame. They are of equal size with CUP and IM in the SouthEast. Their primary WW at -100/100 was in the beginning in the hands of Turkey NW and it did cost a lot of hammers to Dacia a lot of hammers to conquer it.

The amount of players in each meta has usually been the significant sign on who will win but organisation is also an important fact when it comes to how much defence they will be able to feed in WWs and construction plan villages.

I think we can look forward to an exciting endgame, the outcome is not set this year.

Community Calendar ~ March 2019

Our Travian: Path To Pandora game worlds are back in March… with double the speed! Read more here! 😉

  • The Gold promotions will not be placed in the calendar, because they are decided last minute, so keep watching the Payment/Store Information section of our Forums for the updates about it.
  • The speed gameworlds are usually planned when the previous one is over. This means that there is a high chance that this calendar will be updated often mainly to add new speed gameworlds to the list.
  • For the game world number, please check the Forums.

Tournament Finals 2018 ~ War Diaries Week 13: Construction Plans

As we saw last week, Hype managed to conquer the area where one of the construction plans will spawn through some intense war strategy. So how does the situation look like on the other spots where they are supposed to land? Who has the best chances to get those most wanted artifacts?

Last year the plans moved unexpectedly. The only reason given was that the areas were too crowded. That situation could be repeated this year too.

In the week that remains until the plans are released the strategy to get one of them will be finely tuned. On one hand, new villages will be settled in order to force the plans to show up on the desired spots, on the other some villages will be destroyed to make some room.

If we check the actual map, Uollas can be sure to get 4 plans. Union will for sure get enough too. Dacia has the minimum two needed, as well as CUP. IM has it a bit more difficult. If you look at the strategic maps, they have been forced out of the 30/-20 location.

In my Corner, you can find more detailed maps and the latest news about the World Wonders. A couple of them have changed owners!
