Community Calendar ~ April 2019

Spring is bringing back sunny days to the Travian HQ in Munich… and a brand new April Community Calendar!

  • 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.

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.
