Doesn’t good news always make your day? It is sure to make anyone happy when they hear good news. But what if it’s backed up by bad news? It just ruins everything. Well, that’s what my Travian had for me today. It tells me the good news, then followed by bad news…
..and then another bad news.
Plus one more bad news.
I guess I really can’t expect everything to go smoothly as it is. Here is the good news I was talking about:
Doesn’t that report look great? A successful defense against an attack. Nine enemies captured and 1 enemy dead. Well, I say my troops did pretty well. There really is power in number. I say that any player, regardless of what tribe you are, you should really make the effort of improving anything that would give you a great number of troops. As long as you have your enemies greatly outnumbered, chances of winning against them is very high. Much more if you have specialized troops and then you are great in number, you will surely get the game going. But of course, all of these need resources. Not just crops, iron, wood or clay but most importantly, time. Time is the only resource you can’t get enough of in Travian. It is always the one you’re sure to get short of. So rushing things won’t get you anywhere. You can’t rush it. Patience is very valuable at this time. You really have to take every step slowly and carefully. So make wise use of your time. Be sure to invest it in projects that need priority.
Going back to my report, that’s it. I got a good news of a defeated enemy. But then, I had to read my other reports. They did not contain more good news. It just went like this…
..and then another.
Who couldn’t possibly get annoyed? My troops were wiped out just like that. Damn. Just when I was getting the hang of things, this happened. Well, it’s inevitable. There are a lot of strong players out there. I really just wish they don’t feed on the weak, you know?
“HEY! PICK UP SOMEBODY YOUR OWN SIZE, COWARD!”
At least, I tried. I just have to continue making progress if I want more of those good reports. I have lots of resources now and I’m looking forward to expanding them even more. Now, my warehouse is working it’s way to level 5. My main building is at level 12. Work on upgrading your main building. Prioritize it. The higher the level of your main building, the less time it takes for others to level up. So, it’s a clever use of time management. Take it as a tip.
Since I’m working on my warehouse, I can store more and more resources. Which also means, I can train more troops. I need lots of resources if I want a big army, right? I can then raid more oases and hopefully, occupy one soon. My village is situated at an area where there are three unoccupied oases of clay. Since my tribe is Gaul, this is a big help for me. I’ll work on that anytime soon. Right now, I’m still prioritizing on getting more and more troops. Hopefully, I can avoid future attacks so I can gather loads of troops.
Hold on! The bad news isn’t over. Yep, there’s definitely more. Oh, don’t worry. This is the last one, for today.
That’s right, folks. My hero died, again! She’s on her way to being revived. Man, I can’t afford anymore of these deaths. It’s costing me too much on reviving her. I can use the extra resource for more troops, you know? It’s really frustrating. But again, I won’t mope all day about it. I just need more ways on getting more resources.
Also, I still don’t know what to do with my prisoners. I can just set them free. I really don’t care. I just want troops. But I’ll still try to see if I can use them for my advantage. They are not so many so ransoming them doesn’t seem to be very promising although I could still try for a few amount of resources. But I’d still need to build a marketplace and I also don’t have resources for that yet. Although right now, I’m busy using up my resources. I don’t want them to just simply go to my farmers. I’m not that generous. Since I can’t do much defending myself yet, I’ll use them as much as I can.
That’s not much for today but I’m glad I’m making clearer progress. At least, it’s a milestone. My first successful defense. Just you wait. There’s more where that came from!
