Have any of you heard of Travian? I used to play it a lot when I was younger, and today decided to make a new account. Basically, you choose a server and get your own village. You grow its population, make an army, join an alliance, etc. until the endgame sequence starts. I made my account on server 7 because it's the newest, which means you'll be less behind.

You can join the game here - http://www.travian.com/?uc=com7_36454

Choose Server 7.

When you make your village, choose whatever name and info you want, but try to choose South West as your area for your village. This is because I hope to eventually have a UG alliance, and the closer the members are, the better.

hopefully this thread does well, because I really enjoy the game. And the Pit's done well with these things in the past, just look at Transformice and NationStates!

Once you've made a village, post your username here.

I've never played it, but after looking it up and reading the description on its website, it seems at least sort of similar.

Used to play this. It's fun.

I tried it once.

Logged in, started building some kind of lumber mill or something, and it said it will finish building it in like 8 hours, so I thought **** this.

I played this once. I was doing pretty well too. I had three settlements and was managing to produce a ton of resources out of nothing. Then some dickhead started farming me while I begged him to stop. Eventually I didn't see the point, nothing I could really do, my army was non-existent.

I suck at strategy games. I don't understand that it's competitive, I just wanted my settlements to prosper

There's entire guides written about how to stop being a farm. It's just part of the game, and it always will be unless you become one of the pathetic lowlifes that spend every second of their day working on the game. And on the speed server... Dear God.

But yeah, that can be tough. Alliances and such also help.

Oh believe me I spent ages on that game. I like strategy games but I don't like actually thinking about them (if that makes any sense). I had a little alliance going with some other guy but he quit the game without saying anything (made me sad ) I just tend to keep to myself and produce resources without attacking anyone else

It's really similar.

And I've played it, but I always get bored after about 2 weeks with these games.

I had it a while ago. Much like a greatly extended farmville, I left it alone one day to finish building things and mining things etc, and just never went back.

I played it a few times from the start of a server, but I didn't have enough free time to be able to advance as fast as my neighbours... :s

I deem this the best post ever.


This game sounds fun though, i'll do it at some point perhaps.

Me neither, that's why I like to start it at about this time- where it's not so intense, but you haven't missed too much and you're not too far behind.

Got your message.

We'll start an alliance up once we have a few more people and everyone's been playing a few days. Enough to have an Embassy and decent resource production at least.

I used to play, and I'd play again. I'll stop back in once I figure my username and password out.

Unless you actually want to buy into it and buy more later, I'd save it as the instant building thing can save you hours and hours with bigger things, as opposed to a couple of minutes now

This.

We're actually getting a decent amount of people in here, I'm surprised. Now if just a few of you keep with it, we won't be bad off.

#28
So how many people are actually in now? Do we need a UG group?

Not sure quite how many there are, but in the next few days i'll make an embassy and we'll have a UG Alliance. But I just made my account yesterday, so it's gonna be a couple more days.

Me too, I think they get deleted eventually though. Mine however have normal names

Guys, we really need more players. We only have 3 people in the alliance and that's pretty impractical for this game.
