Fixing My Village

There have been a lot of things in the past that has caused me lots of problem in Travian. If you have been following this blog, you would know the problems I have faced such as the crop shortage problem, the constant raids, and even the stalker problems which brought destructive attacks in my village. The economy of my Travian was also at possibly it’s worst state ever which caused problem after problem after problem. I know these are all results of crucial mistakes done and I am to blame for them

I do admit, I made poor decisions. Hey, I’m not much of an expert yet but I am trying my best to learn the game and understand it well. This way, I can make sure that I’m on the right track and to be honest, I have never gone this far ever before. So I’m actually proud of the things that I have achieved. If ever I start a new server over again, I’m pretty sure my progress will be faster since I have learned a lot from my experiences in this server.

But now, I’m on the process of getting my village back on track. The mistakes done won’t hold me back from getting my village back to a good condition. The raids have cooled down, I have dealt with the stalker and my resources are well protected with my 3 crannies so my worries about raids are no longer that scary.

Step by Step Process – Mistakes Done and Solutionsmistakes done

Here, I’d outline the mistakes that I have made and the solution that must be done to get things back on track. I’m hoping that this mistake list will help you guys not make the same mistakes I’ve done.

  • Keeping resource fields behind – This mistake done is one mortal sin if you ask me and trust me, it’s one you wouldn’t want to make. You can take the tip I gave you yesterday which I am now doing.  I’m on the process of applying it and my resource fields are now looking good.
  • Not investing on defenses – Of all of the mistakes done, this is one of the biggest. Beginners and “small time” players are the usual targets of raids. They are the ones who usually end up as farms. So as early as the beginner’s protection period, invest your time and resources of building up defenses. Protect your resources as much as possible. When you’re continuously raided and the enemy raids are successful, they will see that you have poor defenses and you can be sure that with the loots they can take from you, they will keep coming back. Once they do, it will be very difficult for you to get back up since you will no longer have the resources you need to build up resources. In other words, don’t wait for things to be too late before you start to realize what should be done.
  • Making enemies – If you’re a player who is still not capable of building an army in a short period of time, DO NOT invest a lot of time to build a big army and attack a big player. As tempting as it can get, try to avoid revenge on a player you know can create a big army in just a day or two while it takes you more than a week to top his troops. A mistake done like this is a very bad decision and you will end up making an unnecessary enemy. Not unless you are capable of keeping those troops in great number each day, don’t piss off a big player. You will be defeated before you can even counter his attacks.
  • Staying idle – Sometimes when you see that you have done a lot already in your account, you could feel content with the progress you’ve made which in turn causes you to take time to chill and relax. It can be very tempting but remember, the big players are not stopping and so should you. You may think you’re good enough but you’re not. As long as there is room for improvement and there can still be upgrades to be done, do it. When there’s nothing else you can upgrade in the village, then build a second one. Never let yourself be idle. You may relax now but once you’ve gained frequent raiders, you may not be able to relax anymore. Tendency, you’ll just give up hope. Mistake done like this could be irreversible so as early as you can, solve it!

Learn Your Way Through

It’s natural to make mistakes, we’re not perfect after all. But, be sure that you take action immediately. There are mistakes done that if you dwell in can be beyond repair. Do your best and learn your way through the game. There will always be a way to make things better. You just have to find it, solve the problem, get better.

The Dilemma: Training Village Settlers But Having To Deal With Raiders

The Dilemma

The past few days have kept me busy about preparing to build my second village. I have been spending so much time and effort on upgrading resources and my residence (palace). I did so much to work on it and I have been doing on the side is researching new troops. Oh, but speaking of troops, I just found 36 TT’s from adventure which is just fabulous! Anyway, back to the topic, I have been taking care of a lot that would help me start working on my second village.

village settlers

As you can see, my village is now starting to look good and is in shape. So I am now ready to expand but the problem is I’ve been having too many raiders lately. Obviously, raiders are a problem. To expand and grow, you need resources. To build a second village, you need to train 3 settlers. I went to my residence to train village settlers but then, they are very expensive to train!

I really didn’t expect them to be this expensive. Now, I know the solution is simple. I need to improve resource production to be able to train village settlers. The problem is the raids keep coming and I now don’t know if I should ward them off first or start working on the second village. I can’t just do both. That would be very difficult and I might make the wrong move.

Trying to Solve the Matter

Well, since the raids are hindering me from progress, I know I need to counter them. One of the raiders is my stalker. So what I did was send him a message. I am hoping that we can build a friendship again so that he’ll stop attacking me and may help me instead. Let’s hope for the best after I sent him the message. For the others, well, I have no other choice than to be train troops and protect myself. Since I don’t have enough resources to train village settlers yet, I guess I might as well use them to train troops instead so I ward off attackers and somehow be able to buy time for me to upgrade my resources and warehouse. I need more  resources to be able to train village settlers.

With my current actions, I suppose you could say that I would have to delay my plans on building my second village. Right now, I have no choice but to let it wait. I think the best thing I can do here is make sure that I will have enough resources to train my village settlers so that I can immediately use them. Village settlers can be killed during an attack so it is not ideal for me to build them one by one knowing that I village settlershave attacks coming in regularly. I have to take care of the attacks first before I train village settlers. Losing one settler is a very big loss since they use so much resources upon training.

Work Needed – Village  Settlers and Resources

It seems like it’s still a pretty long way before I can get the construction of my second village started but I can take this time to improve my village. There is no sense in just waiting because I have to get things going if I want to make sure that my 3 village settlers will be ready and I can finally have them trained and used. It seems that I have my work cut out for me so I better get things going.

This is where you see how important defense is. You can’t just always get back against your enemy. Fight them every time they attack you. That may not always be as effective as you think. Sometimes, the best way to keep enemies away is that to make them see that you are of no  use for them. No matter how much they attack you, there are no resources they can take. They cannot get anything from you or they lose troops whenever they attack your village because your defense is rocking the house. They will eventually leave you alone because they know that it’s no use and they need to improve.

Tip of the day: Keep your defenses rocking.

Travian Update: Attacking an Oases and Trapping Prisoners

Some things don’t always go the way you want them to. There are things that are just way out of your hands and the only thing you can do, adjust. You have to think of a solution to every dilemma you are in. Moping and complaining about it just won’t help so you have to view things in a different perspective to see a different way around the problem. Playing can be like that; not just life. Well, for some players, playing is life.

My Travian is doing surprisingly well today. I finally collected my rewards from doing tasks and it has helped me do both improvements and troop building today. I have finally upgraded my trapper and I can now put 22 traps. 5 of them are occupied actually. It did work and it captured some of my enemies. Sad thing though is that the last troops I built all got killed but I had enough resources today to create 17 troops. My trapper has caught some prisoners and I have no idea what to do with them. So as usual, I did some forum reading and found that I can have them ransomed. So far, that’s the only thing I have found and I don’t think that’s going to work well with me. Why? It’s because I only have 3 from one player and 2 from another. I don’t think that’s very valuable. Besides, I don’t have a marketplace yet so I can make exchanges. I also still don’t know how to set them free. (Haha!) I’m going to learn that eventually though. So let’s just wait for the perfect timing.

Currently, my troops are attacking an unoccupied oases. Since it’s one of my tasks, I had to do it. I’m not hoping much from it since it’s an attack on an oases that has nothing in it. They might just come home bringing nothing but rats. Well, at least it can increase my hero’s experience a bit. After this, I might give attacking an oases with wild animals in them and see how far my troops can go. I guess with this, I can see how much I’m capable yet as of now.

I have also bid at an auction. Still, this was part of a task so I did it and I got my hero a Helmet of Healing. It looks pretty cool on my hero. Cost me 100 silver and it’s my first time making a purchase like this. I think I might be bidding more when I find some things interesting.

You could say that a lot has been going on but I say this is just the beginning. Finally, we’ll start to stir things up!

I’m the one who got pissed…

Apparently, the player who constantly attacks me is not as dumb as I thought. He’s a pretty good player and he got me. trav

What I did yesterday was I was dodging his attack. I sent my troops elsewhere and transferred my crops into one of my villages so when he gets to my village which he was targeted to, there’d be nothing there. But what he did was he attacked my weakest and smallest village first, Blueberry Muffin. And then, he attacked my other village in which where I sent my resources, Raisin Bran Muffin. Finally, he attacked my most developed village, Corn Meal Muffin. It was a good thing I had my troops elsewhere or else, they might have been wiped out too.

This is not the end of this. Someone has to pay. I hope I can do it. I need to prepare well. It’s time to train troops for one big attack.
