Dear Travian players,

In the games industry there are companies with slogans like “By gamers for gamers”. Here at Travian Games, we don’t have such a slogan, this idea is deeply rooted in our DNA. We develop our games for you. We play our games with you.

Travian players are remarkable in many ways. Not only do they spend countless hours playing Travian, but at the same time they live the game with a dedication that regularly amazes us and makes us very happy. In our Munich offices, you can often hear people say: “Our players are our most important feature.” Continue reading… “Renaming”


Travian Beta Chronicles: Over and done with

At 8:24am it was all done and dusted. “alb” became the first player to finish their Wonder of the World at level 50 and scored victory for the SAMURAI, of which I am also a member. This marks the end of the Travian V Closed Beta. All the players were happy to see this good result despite the ups and downs along the way. Following the congratulations from each of the players, we promised to meet each other again in the coming T5 Beta. We have already set ourselves a clear challenge: Once again, we aim to be the alliance that completes the Wonder of the World.

Travian Beta Chronicles: Battle of the three alliances

And so it begins. Our Wonders of the World are upgraded constantly and are quickly nearing level 50. Our Wonder of the World only just reaches level 38, when a massive offense is launched on it by the alliances “xtools” and “TR-WW”. Looks like tough times lie ahead.

The arch enemies

I’m not quite sure what to make of the other alliances, yet. “|bob|” of “xtools”, who is also building a Wonder of the World, is a face already familiar to me from the Alpha. At the time, two alliances got the win by merging just before the end. I really hope, such a thing won’t be pulled off again in the Closed Beta.

New blog

Finally it’s finished: The Travian blog shines in new splendor and is also now available in a third language. Why the new design and language? Let’s consider one thing at a time.

The new design

Since the old blog’s design wasn’t in line with our new Travian web page, we’ve decided to spruce up the blog. The decision to go for the “new” blog wasn’t only based on the confusing blog roll that made finding older articles almost impossible. That and the clear layout make for a greatly improved reading experience in our view. Continue reading… “New blog”
