Critical events on 4.6 gameworlds ~ Update 08.04.2021

We would like to share some insights and information with you regarding what is currently happening on Europe30, as well as explain how we are moving forward today.

Yesterday, after discussing the issues with our provider and working closely together, we switched the gameworld back to its original environment during the long maintenance.
When we put the gameworld live, we quickly realized that those provider’s issues were still ongoing.

This is indeed not the quality of service we want to offer you, so we truly apologize for the events of yesterday’s afternoon and night.

This morning, we decided to put Europe30 under maintenance to approach a solution for the connectivity issues, and event jam issues that you have been experiencing.

We aim to achieve two things during this maintenance:

  • We will implement a more stable solution for the performance of the gameworld
  • We will rollback the server to a previous back-up taken yesterday 07/04 at 12:07 GMT+1.

After a rollback, you can expect the following things to happen:

  • All payments that happened between the backup date and the time when the gameworld went on maintenance mode will be re-booked.
  • All the troops that were “on the way” by the time of the backup will be returned back to their home villages.
  • Artefacts and Construction Plans will continue to spawn on the same dates as before.

The compensation of 200 gold you received previously, will be added again to all the accounts automatically.

We will also be giving an additional 50 gold to you as compensation for this long maintenance and rollback in the next few days once we ensure the gameworld is running without problems.

The Europe30 server will leave maintenance today at 14:30 GMT+1 (15:30 CEST) and the rollback will be applied.

From the moment the gameworld leaves maintenance, starvation will be deactivated for 24 hours until 14:30 GMT+1 (15:30 CEST) of the 9th April 2021.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused and we thank you for your patience.


Critical events on 4.6 gameworlds ~ What Happened

As you all realized, during the past weekend we had to face an unexpected situation that resulted in the 4.6 regional gameworlds being unplayable.

We are deeply sorry about the whole situation, as we know it created a lot of frustration and anger on your side. This is definitely not the quality of service we aim to provide you and we are working very hard on making sure that it will not happen again in the future.

In the meantime, we would like to provide you some more insights regarding what happened in the past days and weeks.

First things first, Europe 30.

This game world faced latency issues since the very beginning and this was due to the high amount of concurrent users playing the game. Indeed we are tackling this issue, which resulted in some visible improvements that will be even more tangible in the next few weeks. We are fairly positive that the upcoming game worlds – where a huge amount of players is expected – will face these latency issues less and less.

Even though you might assume that this particular issue occurred again last Sunday, we can assure you that they are not coming from the same source. Let us give you a quick explanation.

What players perceive is the same: the game is lagging, there is an event jam, heroes disappear, and so on. The reason behind it is different though and this is what affected all game worlds.

On Sunday morning we realized that something was breaking. Every 10 minutes the event jams were spiking. Our Tech Lead and Live Operation Support immediately jumped on the topic and, after some research, they recognized that the issue was not on the game worlds themselves but on the third-party service hosting the game worlds. These issues couldn’t be solved by adding server capacity.

They quickly got in contact with the provider and the only viable option presented to them was very risky: moving the database of the game world to a different environment until the underlying issue is found and resolved.

Our Tech team decided to take the risk and move the databases for Europe30 and International100, our two biggest game worlds. This is why, in order to minimize the risks for players and their accounts, we had to activate the truce for 24 hours all of a sudden.

Currently, the situation seems stable, and we are still in contact with the provider to discuss follow-up actions to be taken to minimize the risk this will happen again.

And now to the hot topic of compensation. We are perfectly aware that Travian: Legends’ biggest currency is time but unfortunately we cannot give you that one back. As it is impossible to satisfy the needs of each and every single player, we still want to offer compensation at the largest possible scale.

We will add to each active account that registered on AMERICA1, ARABICS50, ASIA20, EUROPE1, EUROPE30, INTERNATIONAL1, INTERNATIONAL100 before April 5th a total amount of 200 Gold. The compensation will be added to the accounts on April 07th around 14:00 UTC+2.

Thank you for reading this wall of text and even more a big thank you from the Travian: Legends team for all the support you showed during this critical event!

Your Travian: Legends Team

Anuncio de cambio de reglas de juego

Como muchos de vosotros sabéis, en julio del 2020 comenzamos a trabajar, gracias al consejo de los embajadores, en un tema muy delicado para la comunidad: las cuentas de apoyo (o cuentas martillo). Queremos anunciar que por fin estamos listos para publicar unas normas del juego modificadas que aborden este problema.

A continuación podréis encontrar la lista de normas que han cambiado. Esta lista está también disponible dentro de la página de “Normas del juego” en la página web de aquí.

Lista de cambios:

En referencia a los ajustes en los Términos y condiciones generales.

  • §1.1. Cambio de numeración a §1.1.a
  • §1.1.b añadido para aplicar la restricción en las vacas privadas.
  • §1.7 añadido para cubrir ciertos casos de abuso en el diseño del juego.
  • §5 contiene una frase reajustada.
  • Religión añadido al punto §6.4.
  • §6.8 añadido para cubrir ciertos casos de contenido inapropiado.
  • Se ha añadido una explicación al punto §7.2 en el proceso de revisión de bloqueos.

Aquí encontrarás un resumen de lo que ya hemos hecho para solucionar los problemas de las cuentas múltiples y las cuentas martillo y lo que ya se ha implementado en el juego:

  • En agosto del 2020 ampliamos el alcance de la limitación de pushing para que también afectara a los miembros de toda la coalición.
  • Después, en septiembre, también se hicieron algunos cambios en las sanciones por bloqueo haciéndolas más severas.
  • Además, se ha limitado la posibilidad de tener representantes a solo miembros de la misma alianza o coalianza y recientemente hemos realizado normas mas estrictas para los representantes que puedes leer aquí.
  • Con el lanzamiento de la versión 4.6, hicimos algunos cambios en los oasis y en el modo vacaciones, abordando con ellos el problema de las cuentas martillo.

Con la nueva norma §1.1.b, los embajadores y el equipo del juego queremos combatir las vacas privadas fuera de las alianzas y coalianzas que no están sujetas a nuestras limitaciones de pushing.

Estas normas toman efecto desde hoy, 23 de marzo, y esperamos que los jugadores cambien su comportamiento en cuanto a vacas privadas se refiere inmediatamente después de que este anuncio se haya hecho público. Comenzaremos a bloquear y sancionar cuentas que no sigan la nueva norma §1.1.b a partir del 6 de abril tomando en cuenta los datos de las semanas anteriores.

Si quieres informar sobre un jugador que está incumpliendo las normas, dínoslo, puedes usar la función provista en el juego, en el perfil del jugador del que quieres informar. Elige “Otro” como categoría, y asegúrate de añadir un comentario con la razón por la cual quieres informar, por ejemplo, “vaca privada”.

Esperamos que este cambio en las normas del juego ayude a todos los jugadores a tener una mejor experiencia mientras seguimos escuchando vuestros comentarios.
