    In general, the more cities you connected, the longer it will take you to load into the game because more elements need to be loaded.
    Also, in general, our game doesn't cope well with any interruption to the loading process. It will just stop in its tracks, so to speak. Those can for example happen at home when connecting via wlan rather than cable or on route due to package loss.
    So, the longer the loading time due to having a lot of cities, the higher the chance to encounter such an interruption and being forced to start loading all over again.

    What a load of Bull
    Always blaming anything except yourselves....

    For a start... initial loading times take longer because of all the rubbish you load into our Cache.

    That being said, 99.9% of broadband connections are 99.9% reliable..
    How come that in most cases when your game says we los internet connection, it is ONLY your game that has had a problem,,, nothing else we might run gets this problem.
    How come I need over 16 Gig of memory to run RN... No other game I have played, or still play, over 25 years of online gaming takes anywhere near this amount..
    Cache is the reason... You know, that thing you keep telling us to clear.

    If I only run 1 RN server as well as other programs I always have running my cache fills up at a given rate, If I add 2 more RN servers it fills up at nearly 3 times the rate, and if you leave it long enough you get the other thing people been querying... NOT ENOUGH RESCOURCE to run xxxxx

    If I don't run any RN servers then it would take months to fill up.

    I don't have the 50 city problem, But I do feel for the players concerned and just will NOT accept such a poor reply to any player... which basically says:-

    Oh dear.... you have done so well we are going to penalise you with longer load times that your internet connection will most like allow to fail, thus preventing you from playing the game

    Never has a truer word been spoken..... so to speak

    Now something along those lines could tempt me to keep playing.
    Despite the fact that the game doesn't work properly, that Travian seem to be in one of two states about.

    Either they don't care and have no intention of trying to improve the playability of the game, OR, They anit got a clue how to fix it and so cannot.

    But despite it all, yes, because like you I do love the game in principle, A format along those lines cou;ld keep me playing...

    That is a good 4th option, and would help many teams in the game.

    Well after reading all of the 8 pages we still don't have a definitive answer on what constitutes numbers of videos watched..
    And Samisu , you keep harping on about what counts if we watch another players adverts... FORGET other players..
    56 adverts a day means that on a standard speed server you can watch all your own adverts.. 28 plus the 28 bonus adverts with Plus Acc. Provided that Samisu is correct and the bonus advert from +Acc counts as 1/56.

    This means that on a 2x server we can only watch 50% of our own adverts, as with a +Acc we would get 56 adverts plus 56 Bonus adverts per day... a total of 112 generated. Unless it is adjusted for 2x servers.

    Now, totally forgetting watching adverts for other players, this means we cannot even watch ALL of our own adverts on a 2x speed server.

    No definitive answer to this has yet been given during the 8 pages of this thread. And I think we need an answer from someone who actually knows, as Samisu doesn't seem to actually know, just assumes from the way he sees it working.

    Not only do they take longer to start.... 10 seconds +, but after half an advert it swaps to showing a different one from scratch as often as not....

    Anyone would think we have nothing better to do than hang around for RN to actually DO things, OH, and refresh every 10 mins....
    And NEVER to we get any sense of when, or even IF, things like this will be addressed

    Yet again unable to log into a server after an Era chnage.

    This time on Broadway Express. US 103

    This server is going the same way as others recently... Slow, unable to load at times, and not at all after the Era change today.... 25 mins trying to load... either get white screen or just gets stuck..

    Reloaded comp, cleared browser and restarted ALL... Still cannot get back in

    This is on top of 18 messages about internet connection over last 24 hours, when My internet is working perfectly.

    According to my screen it is still under maintenance.

    And people are mad because it is second EG in a row that has had the same problems that led to the server going down for a start... And the main thread for this problem is NOT this one

    And where did I say ALL would leave the game...I said a flood of players would leave the game if a satisfactory solution was not given...I know of a lot who would... But I never said ALL...

    We will be announcing the time when the server will be brought back online, so you will know beforehand when to join the endgame again. And from where the round continues.

    We are also discussing what gesture from our side can compensate for the frustration this sudden emergency maintenance during Endgame has caused you.

    What happened is a bit more complicated to solve, but our team is on it full steam and I hope to bring you more news very soon.

    Why can you not post this in the thread that ALL are watching instead of a secondary thread that hardly anyone looks at....

    And as for continuing from where the problems started... That raises the question of WHICH problems....The ones that brought the server down, The same ones that brought tower bridge down.... Or the ones that prevented people getting into the server at all...

    And there is NO compensation that will satisfy people on this one.... So someone up high had better come up with a damned clever solution or you will see a flood of players leave the game

    As I said there is no point in complain when the game crash, now they are trying to solve THIS problem. But the game has many, and if we don´t want to live another crash, we need to complain AFTER the server is fixed.

    The lack of information is however unnaceptable. Many players organize his life to play EG with plenty of time, so if you are thinking about restart the EG today, that won´t work for many of them. You want to create a community here, so use ti: ask what the people think is the best solution. If you want constructive thoughts, stop treating people like bots, because what I can see is that this is a garbage dump where players pour their frustrations and the staff never really answer anything (maybe they don´t know "further information" but then just say it).

    We complained during and after when similar things happened on Tower Bridge a week or so back... And look where it got us... Absolutely nowhere....
    We know before they do if the server is likely to crash... But we are only the paying customers... Why should they listen to us

    I continue to keep my suggestion

    if they choose to NoT restart this end game (rollback) we all have to boycott and park our trains.

    Not enough people would actually do that..... I'd go even further and boycott ALL servers until they sort out the need to refresh after 5 or 6 commands on ALL servers, and they make sure that their servers can handle 300 people online for EGs, which at the moment they cannot it seems...

    But not enough people would do that either

    And as for the report on PTR Discord that it's been frozen from when the problems started last night.... Which problems... The ones that took it down in the first place, or the ones that prevented people getting back in...

    If the second one, then that just will prove once and for all how little they care about players, And I will advertise where ever I can as to how Travian treat their customers

    Not good enough Emziie.... This type of thing happened on Tower bridge very recently... so should have been checked and corrected before this EG started.... Plus other servers are also playing up badly....

    You lot must think we are stupid to not notice these things.... All sorts of questions are asked, and ignored, and nothing really done about all sorts on ongoing major problems....

    Don't be surprised to see many players vanish from the game, as Travian no longer seem to be able to put out a game that actually works as it should at any time.... never mind during an EG

    What the idiots running this game don't seem to be able to accept is that it is seriously broken,,,, and not just this server... we have half a team unable to get into another server......US 103.... and Platform X... Einstein has been playing up as well...

    WE, the players, keep telling em about these things and overall NOTHING IS DONE TO FIX IT....
    Bodge job after Bodge job.... with the same problems coming up on every recent EG that has run

    I think Calamity Jane had the right question...."Is there anyone technically capable of really fixing anything"... The last 12 months has shown us that NO THEY HAVE NOT..

    Silly thing is that we had all this on Tower bridge a week or so back.... and yet it's all happening again...

    They allocated more hardware to that one which did next to no good at all

    For crying out loud.... Either fix the bloody game, or get some coders that can...

    We know some, like ones that teach coding at Harvard .

    What a pathetic situation..

    Another EG, and another server that breaks as soon as even looked at, and now under maintenance..

    Yet another example of the totally inadequate abilities of Travian to supply a game that actually works..

    You are becoming the joke of the gaming world.... and rightly so

    It is NOT just Broadway, it is every server.

    more than 5 or 6 actions and it needs a refresh, which might work, or you might need to reload from the lobby.

    The question about excessive refreshes has been asked for months. There has never been a reply as such, and it is all getting worse by the week/day/hour ???
