If you thought that fighting for bragging rights as the best of the best wasn’t enough, our prizes for the cream of the crop will change your mind.
We listened to your feedback and this year we have decided to slightly change the categories to make these rounds fairer and more competitive!
Without further ado, let’s have a look at the prizes! Read More
The Tournament 2019 is on the horizon (June 18th!) but as you all know, first comes the Qualification round!
The draw happened early this morning (our Social Media Manager was the lucky hand 😉 ) and here’s the result…
But how do we decide which country gets a dedicated server?
Due to the significant amount of players in the Arabic community, they require a dedicated qualification server, the Arabic International. The International (English) Server is for players from the countries which weren’t included in the group servers. This server’s game language and the support will be in English.
In order for a country to be eligible for a group server, it needs to be in the top 16 of the ‘active players’ and average ‘online players’ statistics from the previous year.
However, there are exceptions. As we award real prizes (soon to be revealed!) to the winners of the tournament, legal complications can arise depending on the local prohibition laws of that country such as Italy and Spain. This means that some countries we cannot invite to participate even though they make it into the top 16 and that’s why they aren’t included in the four group servers. Unfortunately, residents of these countries will not be eligible for prizes. The actual countries affected can be seen in the Tournament Terms & Conditions.

The time for a new round of the most challenging Travian: Legends gameworlds of the year is getting closer! And it’s also time to spice things up a little! The Tournament 2019 Qualification Rounds will start on June 18th, 2019!
TOURNAMENT 2019 ~ NEW FEATURES
The Tournament comes back… completely revamped! Wonder what will change? A lot!
? Egyptians and Huns are joining the battle!
Yes, this time our 2 new tribes won’t stay on the sidelines and just watch Teutons, Gauls, and Romans fighting for supremacy in the most intense gameworld ever. They will be right on the battlefield with them!
? New confederacy system!
The limitation of only being able to support alliance and confederacy members with troops and resources will be enabled on the Tournament game worlds. You can find more details about the Confederacy System here.
? New World Wonders!
For the first time ever, each tribe will have its own unique Tribe-specific World Wonder. Now they look even better! ?
TOURNAMENT 2019 ~ QUALIFICATION DRAW
We are aiming to draw the qualification matches latest on June 4th! We are currently waiting for some legal advice regarding the possibility for Italian and Spanish players to take part in the Tournament.
As usual, there will be 6 Qualification Rounds, one English International, one Arabic International and 4 groups composed of 4 domains each.
REQUIREMENTS TO QUALIFY FOR THE FINALS
To get an entry key for the Tournament Finals, players need to join the Qualification server of their domain. During the Legends on Tour 2019 Summit we discussed the value and relevance of Qualification Rounds and together we came up with different requirements to qualify for the Finals.
One entry key is given to players whom at gameworld end respect one of the following parameters:
- at least 10 villages,
- a Top 100 position in the Offence Rank,
- a Top 100 position in the Defense Rank.
Five entry keys players whom at gameworld end respect one of the following parameters:
- a “Wonder of the World” village,
- a Top 10 position in the Offence Rank,
- a Top 10 position in the Defense Rank.
At the same time, the wildcard keys that are usually raffled before the Tournament Finals starts will stay heavily limited. This means that if you want to be sure to make into the Finals, you need to participate in the Qualification rounds.
Also, the Gold transfer links generated at the end of the 2018 Finals can be used in the Qualification Rounds of Tournament 2019.
More details coming soon!
Sharpen your swords and string your bows, the fight is right to come!
First of all, let’s acknowledge the elephant in the room: we had a rough time this year with our dear Tournament. A lot of unexpected issues occurred, but we are not here to talk about that. We have a forum post about it that you can read here. Nevertheless, Safiren has prepared an update for you! Enjoy!
Our reporter Safiren is back with a double interview to two expert diplomats. We are talking about لورنس (shield) and Black Pearl (TDF/CS) Read More
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.
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!
We are getting closer to the endgame…
What’s the hottest zone according to our reporter Safiren? Read More
