The Player who Gave me his USX Account


So last week I had an interesting experience… a nearby player who I never raided nor attacked sent me a message saying:

“You win. I’m sick of playing. What village do you want me to add my troops? I’ll let you farm all my villages as well.”

How nice. Turns out the player had about 6000 phalanx and 2000 TTs among other troops. That’s a lot of troops to generate from 3 villages. Just as well. I needed a nice amount of TTs to sacrifice on a nearby village that I wanted to chief.

And so I had him set me as sitter and I just took over the account.

Very cool!

Invitation To Have A Travian Sitter, Learning What It Is. Bonus: Travian Stalker Update!


Travian Stalker Update

Today, I logged into my Travian account to check for updates. Yesterday, I talked to you guys about this Travian stalker whose been asking for my Facebook account. Things just got even way more creepier today. I received this message from him today:

travian sitter

I guess that made his intentions clear. I really didn’t expect this. Does he really think it can be just like that? What an idiot. He even gave me his number. Yes, you read that right. He gave me his number saying that I can just text or call him. I guess he’s really serious or just really desperate. This guy probably has no one in his life. I just don’t understand why he thinks he can find a girlfriend just like that. I’m not that stupid.

Anyway, I’m just trying my best to keep him off my village so I’m going with the flow. Not that I’m saying I’m giving away myself to him. Like hell, that would happen. What I’m saying is that I make up excuses so he won’t keep on flirting with me and at the same time, feel pity for me so that he won’t attack my village. I just hope he believes those stuff that I’m saying. I’m trying to be dramatic so I can sound at least a bit convincing.

Message of Invitation

Enough about that weird, creepy stalker guy. Today, I received an invitation. This person is offering to be my Travian sitter. I’m a little doubtful because I don’t think you just get invitations for something that is advantageous to you. My first thought is that this person might want something from me. Becoming my Travian sitter might get me in trouble.

To those who don’t know what a sitter is, let’s discuss it, shall we?

Travian Sitter

A Travian sitter is useful when for example you’ll be away for a while and you need someone to take care of your account for you. This works well if you don’t have any duals. A Travian sitter’s job is to maintain your account when you’re not able to do so. They have ability to do things in your account but the owner of the account can limit what a Travian sitter can do. They can upgrade resource fields, upgrade buildings, launch raids and send reinforcements and even create a new village.

Two sitters can be added in one account. You can find this is the Options bar on the upper right corner of the screen.travian sitter

Once you click the Options button a new window will find this window like the one below and you will just have to click the Sitter tab.travian sitter

This is where you can add or remove a Travian sitter. The owner of the account can immediately remove a sitter anytime he wants to. There are rules about this system in Travian. For in depth understanding, visit the Travian game rules page.

A Travian Sitter is different from having duals. Travian Sitters are recognized by the Travian software whereas duals are just agreements between players in using one account to help the owner. Duals are not recognized by the Travian software.

A lot of things can happen when you have a sitter and it may be difficult if that someone cannot be trusted or else you will risk getting banned. A disadvantage to having a sitter is that you may make enemies you don’t want to make. Things done in your village may not be as you want them to be. The good thing about sitters over duals is that a Travian sitter can be limited to certain tasks. If you are clever, you can have this used to your advantage but make sure that you can keep monitoring your account because sitters can get you into serious trouble.

Here is a list of what a Travian sitter can and cannot do:

Sitters can:

  • Raid
  • Build Buildings
  • Send Messagea
  • Change villages
  • Settle Villages
  • Build Troops
  • Research Troops
  • Upgrade Troops
  • Join an Alliance
  • Look at your statistics
  • Buy Gold
  • Use NPC Merchant
  • Pose being you

Sitters Can’t

  • Cheif
  • Do a Normal Attack
  • Use Catapults
  • Edit your Profile, Preferences and Account details
  • Use Gold
  • View Alliance Options
  • Leave an Alliance

Make sure you can trust your sitter. You wouldn’t want to end up being banned or getting into so much trouble.
