Default Anyone on this?

Anyone on Travian? It's an online wargame in which players build empires and wage war in real time.

Server 1 restarted last Monday and I'm wondering if anyone from TauOnline is on it.

Anyone who wants to join, click the link in my signature to sign up!

I'm always looking for cool free games to play. I've just started a village.

Which one of you two started on S1? I'm on server1 myself and will be able to get you into last server's winning alliance in a few weeks.

In the meantime, tell me if you need anything and I'll see what I can do.

I started a village called "The island" at -63,-80 on server 1. I'm on quest 12 of the starting series. Everything I know came from this quest series as well as a skim on the forums about the "world wonders" and the natars. I suppose I'll read some of the forum tutorials to get an idea of what I'm supposed to do. Don't get too excited for me, though, I tend to change games a lot.

I'm (-4,-68) myself. But I was part of the winning alliance last server( 8)) so I can almost certainly get you into this alliance.

Personally, I wouldn't mind a TauOnline wing of the alliance.

Hm, personally I found Travain disdainful because somebody will always jsut attack you, steal your resources, and then keep attacking you more.

I'm going to do it anyways though.... sigh you....

Beginner's Protection and Crannies should be used to avoid being farmed.

Yep.

And only both go so far unless your economy is to stagnate.

I just finished the last quest that wanted every resource up to level 2.
Then I got attacked my 30 macemen from a village two screens (not squares) over.
My cranny was only level 1 or 2, so they got away with ~100 wood and iron.
I built up a few resources to 3 and have the cranny building to level 3.
I checked just now and I was 30 seconds from being attacked by someone a few villages over, so I quickly spent my uninsured resources and started building the cranny to 4 (less I have to quick-spend later to not lose anything.)

The first attacker only lost 1 of the 30 macemen because I only had 2-3 of my own plus the rat or two given as reinforcements by the quest series. I'd like to change it so when they try to pillage me they actually lose something, I'm planning to build an academy so I can get the spearmen (I'm playing the teuton race.) Do you think spearmen and an earthwall will be enough to hold back some of their people?

I can't predict if they are attacking other players or if I'm just unlucky, but 30 macemen is several days worth of resources to me, I don't imagine they are sending 30-man skirmishers to every nearby village.

Update: I messaged one person and they said they've attacked my neighbors 20 times. I'm guessing they are just farming, because I started the game after my neighbors and I'm around 50 population while they are still sub-20. Maybe I'll build some of my own macemen and start pillaging.

What irks me is that the person I messaged had in their profile a note that read something like "I've been known to put anyone who attacked me early-game on farm status. Consider this a warning." What a load. That person claims to be attacking people 20 times and then huffs in their profile about being attacked them self. Then again I guess that person can back it up. I didn't attack the person because of the message since I was new, but I suppose that's how the person loaded up so much resources. Well played.
