Attack in Travian Account
Seeing an attack in Travian coming in your village can be nerve-wracking especially when you’re still at the peak of gaining momentum in the game. You can’t see how much troops are coming and whether or not your defense is good, you still feel nervous because you don’t know how much defenses you will need. You then think, “Is there a way to know how large is a player’s army is?” By end game, you will already have an idea who the big players are. But during early and mid game, it may be hard to determine the big players and it can be difficult to assess whether a player is capable of producing a large army or not. An attack in your Travian account is one major thing every player who’s still starting out worries about.
Let’s see what could be the possible things we can take a look at to get a somewhat idea how big an army can a player produce.
If an attack in Travian that’s coming from a capital, there are certain things we can use to take a guess on the army size. You can try to see if the capital is a 6-cropper, 9-cropper, or 15-cropper. A 6-cropper or a 9-cropper can be classified as a newbie. So you can already tell that this player might not be much of a threat so there’s really nothing much to worry about. But if the village is a 15-cropper, you can check if it has an own oases. By it, you can tell that a player is very much skilled. Obviously, this guy’s a threat so you better watch your back. You wouldn’t want a player like that make you his farm and be constant with his attack in Travian.
A village’s age will also help you tell if the player’s attack in Travian can be considered a threat. As obvious as it sounds, a new village is not to be scared about and a village that has been around for a few weeks already might have had much progress already. This can be assisted by checking the village’s population. When I was still starting out, that’s the first thing I will check when there’s an attack, population. I would guess if the village is a big one if it has a high population. Take in mind that a 15-cropper village has a high population. And again, that’s how you can tell if the player is a threat. Bear in mind that an attack in Travian can be of two types, normal attack or raid. Either of the two, you wouldn’t want to be caught up in them by a big and skilled player.
Another thing you can use to determine big players are their ranks. Players who always do attack in Travian and are aggressive players usually rank high. Keep a look out for those who are higher than you on the list. If you see that a player is on a higher rank than you, then you should take extra caution.
A Friendly Reminder
All these things about an attack in Travian are just hints. These are just basis for a guess if the attack is huge or not. They can be or cannot be accurate. It is already common sense for every player to prepare proper defenses. An attack in Travian, whether normal attack or raid will not be successful if you have the defenses. It’s almost criminal to not work on defenses. If you’re that kind of player, don’t expect to last in the game. You’ll be finished before you can even make your first attack in Travian. There is no exact way for sure to tell if a player’s attack will blow your Travian village to rubble. Like every good war strategy, be prepared. The possibilities are countless and you can be defeated in many ways whether the attack in Travian made is a normal attack or raid. So always be on your guard. Remember, you can’t just keep on avoiding attacks forever.
