Travian: Shores of War

🧭 General Features 🧭
Map 
Ancient Europe with 87 regions to be conquered. Traveling over the edge is not possible. 
Victory points
Victory points are accumulated by the alliance that dominates a region.

To dominate a region, an alliance needs to have >50% territorial control and must wait for the “securing” cool-down timer (24 hours) to run out.

The alliance’s victory points are the sum of all points held in all villages of this alliance. The alliance’s victory points can be lost, conquered or destroyed.

No victory points for inactive players 
Players marked with red and gray dots in the alliance list (i.e. players inactive for longer than 72 hours) do not receive victory points for their villages. Victory points for the regional control are distributed among other players’ villages in the region. Their population still counts toward regional control, however.
Tribes
Travian: Shores of war features 6 tribes:

  • Egyptians
  • Huns
  • Teutons
  • Gauls
  • Romans
  • Spartans
World Wonders and End of Gameworld
There are no World Wonders in this type of scenario. The game world ends at specific time after 180 days for 1x speed, 120 days for 2x speed, and 80 days for 3x speed.
Troop merging
Yes – unlimited with resources – Gold usage limited to 50 Gold per day per village. More information is available here.
Troop forwarding 
Yes. Details on how to forward troops can be found here.

When you forward troops from a harbor village with available ships, you can provide your ships with the selected reinforcements so that they can travel faster. It doesn’t matter whether the troops belong to you or another player or whether they originate from a harbor or a regular village. After reinforcements arrive at the target village, the ships immediately reappear in the harbor village. 

Trade routes
You can create routes only to your own villages.
Visibility of alliance list attacks
The alliance member list will only show attacks and raids where the number of incoming troops is equal to or larger than the rally point level. 
No confederacies 
Travian: Shores of War is an ultimate battle of marine conquerors where everyone fights only for their own alliance. The diplomatic agreements in the shores of war are limited by non-aggression pacts and wars only.
⚓ Harbors and pathfinding ⚓
Harbors
You will be able to build harbors in villages that are located on shores next to “deep waters”. Harbors, in turn, will allow you to send tradeships and warships at increased speed when they travel through deep waters.
Pathfinding 🆕
The ships now go straight from one tile to another. The game calculates how many “regular” tiles and “deep water” tiles the ship crosses while traveling from point A to point B and applies the speeds separately based on the ratio of regular to deep water tiles.

  • Deep water movement is a static 12 fields per hour for x1 speed game worlds (24 for x2-x5, 48 for x10) and cannot be boosted.
  • Land movement is not altered and while on land, all movement bonuses (hero items, tribe bonuses, tournament square, and artifacts) still apply.
  • Traveling through deep waters is not affected by hero items (i.e. boots, standards, etc.) except for the map.
  • The tournament square only affects land movement. This means the army must travel 20 fields on land before the tournament square takes effect.

🌊 The ships 🌊
Trade ships 
Trade ships provide additional trading capacity to your harbor village. They do not need merchants to transfer resources and are not limited to 20 units.

Trade ships travel at a speed of 20 fields per hour on 1x speed game worlds (multiplied by the speed factor) for all tribes in deep waters. When traveling by land, they take the regular speed of the tribe that owns the harbor village.

Warships and decoy warships
Warships and decoy warships are used for sending armies (attacks, raids, settlers, and reinforcements) at an increased speed of 12 fields per hour  on x1 speed game worlds (24 on x2 and x5) when they travel in deep waters. Decoy warships are very similar to warships, but can carry only up to 60 units.

🏛️ Cities 🏛️
Cities
Villages can be upgraded into a city with a Townhall at level 20.

  • The city requires 2 settlement (CP) slots.
  • The city gains 3 additional building slots.
  • Resource fields can be upgraded to level 12 in non-capital cities.
  • Walls can be upgraded with Watchtowers.
Watchtowers
Only available in cities.

The Watchtower is not a separate building, but a wall extension, which can be upgraded up to level 20. Each level of the Watchtower adds 1% of defence bonus, up to 20% at maximum level.

Waterworks
In Travian: Shores of War, waterworks can only be built in Egyptian cities.

🏆 Ancient powers (artifacts) 🏆
Name
Here, artifacts are called ancient powers.
Effects
Architects’ secret, Titan boots, Eagles eyes, Diet control, Trainers talent, Storage masterplan, Rivals confusions.
Conquering
Alliances with >50% territorial control gain access to the ancient power, which can be activated in a village containing a big enough treasury.
Power restrictions
Ancient power needs to be activated manually every 24 hours. The same ancient power can be activated once for each alliance member (effect with account scope) and once for each alliance member’s village (effect with village scope).

Ancient powers can be activated as soon as a player’s alliance has achieved >50% territorial control and has held the territory for 24 hours. To activate an ancient power, an alliance member just needs a treasury at level 10 for ancient powers with an effect for the village, or a treasury at level 20 for ancient powers with an effect for the account.

There are naturally a few restrictions: For each village, only one ancient power may be activated, and for each account only one account-wide ancient power may be activated. Thus, a total of two ancient powers can have an effect on one village.

🔱 Conquering 🔱
Villages
When conquering a village that belongs to an account of another tribe, the village keeps that tribe. The tribe-specific buildings are kept unless they are destroyed in battle. Your account will stay as the tribe you picked during registration.
Natars
When conquering a Natar village, the village will belong to the tribe of the chief’s village.
Keep tribe on conquer
A full description of the feature can be found here: Keep tribe after conquering
🏠 Spawning and Settling 🏠
Spawning
Instead of spawning in the center, there are four spawning positions on the map, one for each quadrant. The regions around the spawn site will be unlocked in a certain order. Only once all spawn sites of the first region are filled will the villages start spawning in the next region.
Settling a second village (changing tribe) 
 
You can pick the tribe of your second village for your very first settlement.

  • This only works for the first successful settlement from your spawn village.
  • If the settling fails (due to other settlers being faster), you can still select the tribe.
  • If the settlement was successful, but the settled village is then destroyed, the feature is not re-enabled.
Settling other villages
When settling a new village, the village created belongs to the tribe of the settler’s village.
Settling with ships
You can send your settlers on ships to found a new village.
Settling location
You can only settle in regions that have a neighboring region with more than 4,000 alliance population.
🦆Miscellaneous🦆
Cancelling deliveries
Merchant and trade ship delivery can be cancelled within the first 60 seconds.
Harbors in the map.sql 
The harbor status of the village is shown in the map.sql. More information about what the map.sql is can be found here.
Flat map and the regions
Regions on the other side of the map (like Volubilis and Hyperborea) are no longer considered “neighboring” and their population is not counted for region unlocking.

Hovering over the region name in the statistics and alliance profiles will enable regional map tool-tips to display its location.

Travel time calculator
The travel time calculator will help you calculate travel times between villages both for traveling on land and on ships.
Permanent medal
To get a medal at the end of the game world, players should meet the following requirements:

  • Have an account at the end of the game round.
  • Be part of the winning alliance that has the most victory points when the game world ends.
  • Be part of an alliance continuously for the last 30 days (x1 and x2 speed) and 15 days (x3 and x5 speed) before the game world ends.

We hope this table will help you to dive right into the action on our Shores of War game worlds in April. See you on the battlefield!
