Thread: So, who wants to win this round?

  1. #1

    Default So, who wants to win this round?

    It's a round. Travian. You build a WW and finish it first and you win. Would be interesting to hear from any of the alliances that intend to make the effort. Would also be interesting to hear from any of the alliances that just want to have fun. Probably wouldn't be that interesting to hear from the alliances that don't have any idea what they're doing, but hey, might as well pile in.

    Way too early for any kind of analysis, so maybe we could start a little round robin, just to keep the forum alive.

    I'll go first. I can't speak for all TBN, I'm just another soldier, but we seem to be one of the more deliberately assembled groups on the server. I'm pretty sure we just want to make trouble, and have fun. Like girls. Or with girls. It's all good.

    The big metas, Empire and SPQR ( I always hear special squirrels when I see that) are kind of ponderous. You know, plodding, with lots of rules and directives and MMs. I'm sure all the members feel secure, at least until they see incoming. Won't be long!

    So some input from them would be good. Also some help from some of the others out there, TTA, DEMONS, U.S. Who ARE you folks, and what are you doing here? You like to fight? You like to watch your new villages slowly build up their fields to 10? Do you find a screen full of red X's exciting, or does it turn your bowels to water? Need to find out?

    The players have settled their third, hammers will be a'building soon. Let's talk. We just want to have fun.
    "Yeah, I usually get my hammer chiefed. It's my signature move."

    "Between the idea and the reality, falls the forum."

    I would love nothing more than for more people to post on this forum and I commend you for trying wheelman, but this forum is dead it would seem.

    It is a shame really because everyone is missing out on half of the fun of this game. The forums can bring an unexpected amount of personality to the game as you get to know each other, whether it be friend or foe. I played server 1 back in the day and I knew all the personalities of the server. We were enemies, allies and friends. Sometimes all 3 at once.

    Come on out, personalities of server 3 and show what you are made of!

    It seems like there are some groups fighting already so you can't say there isn't much going on. SPQR and Empire are "at war", smaller groups angry with each. I know of a small group wanting to fight Empire and a decent sized alliance wanting to destroy SPQR. TBN seems to be a wild card. DEMONS look like a decent group.

    Care to share Hermes? Are you in one of the metas or a smaller group?

    I'm in one of the metas. But to be honest, all I've seen from anybody - friend and foe - is pretty harmless. Kinda noobish. We'll see what direction the round goes, but so far, I'm underwhelmed.

    And spies abound. That I would say is a certainty.

    Oh, and I hold no leadership roles. Just a nameless face here.

    It does seem kind of "meh". I haven't played in a while and with diminishing populations the number of good accounts has also decreased. I wonder if Empire or SPQR have cats yet...

    So bad to see only 3/4 big alliances ...
    It could be funny to see a lot of "small" alliances of 20 players, with more actions and diplomacy
    Good game everyone

    I don't know how I didn't see this but thanks for the post DuSale, you have a nice account going so far! Just curious if you would be willing to disclose how many artworks you have bought so far? Some accounts are settling at a rate only obtainable through purchasing them and at the price they were going for after the flash sale, it has to be costly. I saw one earlier still went for around 18k silver.

    Thank you Kelsier !

    I do a lot of party on my different villages but to be clear i bought some artworks. Not many, but if you see the Auctions of artworks, i only bid sometimes and i didn't go with crazy prices

    (PS : Sorry for my english ...)

    There's some action in this server already, but I don't see many good players on here. I'm dualed with someone but not really active.

    Oh yeah. I was spectating, and that's about it. I don't think I built anything in that village, but when my friend wanted to try out Travian, I told him I would delete and help him out.

    Well, I'm here and ready to try my game on a (relatively) new server. I say relatively because I have spawned here before but never stayed for long.

    There's only one problem.

    Did Flossie ever start a lounge in this embassy? I simply cannot play a server without a virtual lounge to go grab a beer and some natchos in.
    And now I'll tell you what's against us, an art that's lived for centuries. Go through the years and you will find what's blackened all of history. Against us is the law with its immensity of strength and power - against us is the law! Police know how to make a man a guilty or an innocent. Against us is the power of police! The shameless lies that men have told will ever more be paid in gold - against us is the power of the gold! Against us is racial hatred and the simple fact that we are poor.

    In which to grab a beer and nachos. Believe it or not, I learned that you never end a sentence with a predicate from Beavis and Butthead Do America.

    As a holder of a graduate degree in English, i could give a lecture about colloquial and formal usage, but I can't be bothered.

    So where's the lounge to which we might repair for the purpose of consuming some virtual beer and natchos?

    Oh, well then I will just assume you know what you are doing then.

    As for the other thing, I dunno. First time on s3.

    When I set the option to see posts from the past year, There's no lolcat thread visible either.

    Besides, I'm kind of used to the Lounge thread in the s1 embassy. It's a place to be silly and have some non-partisan bonding. I know Flossie started one here a few years back. I thought maybe we could revive it and have some friendly chats over virtual beers, or Scotch, or coffee, or whatever you want.

    Because the motto of Flossie's lounge threads in any embassy has long been "you can get anything you want, at Flossie's embassy lounge (excepting Flossie).

    I found it, and lol, I was the last person to post in it.

    Now.... How do we get the lounge thread and the lolcat thread moved back to the embassy?

    Mod? Mod? Is there a mod who could help us?

    Let's try to have some fun here, maybe wake up the embassy a bit.

    Hermes, if we can get the threads back, I'll find lolcats to post if you;ll visit the lounge and be silly with me.

    I swear girls can be so ungrateful sometimes. I made her breakfast in bed, and instead of saying "Thank you", she's like, "How did you get in my house?"
