What is Travian Chiefing?
In Travian chiefing is a great thing. It works like this: You build a village and I convert it over to my side by reducing the loyalty of the people of that village.
Their loyalty is what keeps them on your side. When that loyalty reaches 0%, then the village becomes yours provided you have an empty slot in the village you are travian chiefing from and you have sufficient culture points.
The Sentiment of Travian Chiefing
For many players, chiefing takes too much hassle. Gotta get the academy to 20… gotta get the residence to 20… gotta research it and have to train the senator. Booo
But the join of travian chiefing doesn’t come from stealing, much like catapulting someone’s village. The joy comes from:
- Saving yourself time (since you don’t have to build)
- Saying You’ve Done It
Travian Chiefing: Time Saving
Sure it takes time to upgrade those buildings, but the marginal increase of time is not really that great since you’re going to be clicking the “upgrade” button at some point, anyway… might as well be upgrading the academy.
And the act of chiefing a village does save time. You don’t have to upgrade all those fields manually. Nothing is more frustrating than upgrading those level 0 crop fields that take less than 5 minutes, but then forgetting to go back to the computer and do the next upgrade and letting 5 hours pass by. The other fields are a pain as well.
Unfortunately upgrades need to be done again. I don’t think upgrades are carried over to the new village owner. Obviously the troops aren’t carried over either… although I don’t see why they wouldn’t be, from a “real life” perspective. Wasn’t Rome run by the mob? Whatever…
Saying You’ve Done It: Travian Chiefing Facebook
Everyone knows that facebook only really exists so that friends can show off to their friends the cool things they’ve been doing and maybe… just maybe, their friends will get jealous.
And so it is with travian cheifing. Someone who does it a lot likes show off. But they also get emotional about it:
And then wait for it…
To show off.. the classic FaceBook show off moment. Ha ha ha.
Now, if you will excuse me, I need to go back to my Travian account and deal with that 2% loyalty village up there before the village owner comes back online and fucks it all up!
