Special videos

  • From my observations when playing videos that actually ran ads (browser), the Travian ads play only when another ad could not be loaded. This was far more often than an ad playing (potential revenue), which is why I suspect that the Pollux Update had more to do about closing off an unfixable money sink (developer time) than it is about stopping bots, or helping the player base.

  • Because there are no advertisers willing.


    They quit ( there had been a lot of different ads for a while) when the game started losing players en masse.


    And the game was losing players for obvious reasons.


    There are simply too few recipients of the advertising message and no one will spend money on something that will reach a few.


    Unfortunately, nothing has changed in this matter, the outflow of players is even deepening.

  • are you the advertiser? If not your comment is pure speculation

  • Citation (video bonus engine >> Upgrades):


    "Improve your engine by watching bonus videos daily. 1 of the first 14 bonus videos each day contain a guaranteed upgrade."

    To get bonus video guaranteed you must have plus account if you don't have plus account you may not have all 14 bonus videos per day to get your Pollux upgrade, Buy gold to buy plus account, that's what RN is asking you to do with the pollux engine.

  • i have a plus account, and have watched 18 videos today, and no engine upgrade/bonus. This was "guaranteed," but where is the bonus?

    If you have a Plus account you will get your engine-upgrade within the first 28 videos (14 first videos + 14 bonusvideos)

  • me as well Ahnlak!

    Also having this problem.


    I have better things to do with my time than watching endless videos, But, I am not able to disable the wretched Pollux so I have a choice between NEVER watching any videos or putting up with a lame engine which will be nothing but a pest in the end game. I deliberately pushed my career engine to era 6 so that I would not have to worry about it being unable to carry the called goods and getting stuck on an earlier call.


    Can we at least be able to put it in the museum out of harm's way, Please.

    In this world there is nothing softer or thinner than Water.

    But to compel the Hard and Unyielding it has no equal.

  • Of course, today I get the upgrade after 8 videos!

    I'm assuming that the probabilities go down, either by era or by how many upgrades you already have obtained. Feels like it needs to be smoothed out a little, but at least *sometimes* you can still get an upgrade in a timely manner...

  • So here is my life story,


    My laptop battery died so i used my old phone( alcatel pixi 3). I bought it for 20 euro years and years ago. It is totally useless. But laptop needed a new battery right,so what i should i do in the mean time?


    I downloaded railnation to my old phone, and to my suprise it didnt only work but it worked with widgets and the best part was instead of videos i get a popup "video's not available,you can collect your bonus in 30 seconds". Yeah really, like that.


    From now on i have a special device/platform to watch my daily video streak.My pollux is so happy.

    I do think that this is very good feedback that I will take back to RN!
