    This is getting silly now


    Refresh after a City level up, because most of the time you cannot reschedule trains until you refresh after a level up.

    Removed the City Bonus and then had to refresh again to schedule trains..


    And as for reporting things... All we get is that the bug is already known about.


    We had that for at least 8 months before the XXL update..... Do we have to wait another 8 months for what is already supposed to be fixed, to actually really get fixed ?????

    Oh dear, and there was me, along with thousands of others, Mistakenly thinking that the XXL update was meant to give a very much improved overall game.


    RN had become a toil and aggravation to play before the update, certainly NOT the fun that games are meant to be, and it is no more fun to play now after the update.


    And the way that Travian are driving the game, taking little or NO notice of what the paying customers need, makes me think that it is time to find a new game to play.


    Best part of 9 months to deliver an update that was supposed to fix most problems, and actually has fixed very little.....

    If you are trying to drive away the players who don't pay real money to buy gold to play, you're doing a really good job at that...

    I have to agree with that staement.

    Any more than 3 or 4 commands and you have to refresh. And as has been posted earlier, you don't know it won't work until it fails a command, so wastes a lot of our time.

    The idea of clearing cache etc..... total rubbish... If we all did that every time Travian thinks we should then we would spend more time clearing cache etc than playing the game.


    Messaging system is still total rubbish, the biggest joke I've ever seen in a game.... It still tells me I have xxx new messages when I've seen most of them earlier.. You still cannot scroll back,,,, well you can but like before could end up anywhere..... 48 hours before is a pretty frequent one..

    You still cannot paste from outside the game, except by using Ctrl +V... You still cannot edit posts you might have made a mistake in, and you cannot delete threads that are no longer needed... ALL things we asked for years ago

    And why does it have to take up half the screen... On a 1440P screen it all looks so large compared to text in any other apps, and NO,,, it is NOT my settings before some smart ass suggests so...


    In fact the only real improvements I've seen are that map scrolling is much better, Refreshes are a bit quicker , as is loading from scratch. We still have to return to lobby far too frequently as it will not just refresh..


    So all in all... the XXL upgrade did virtually nothing to encourage me to carry on playing the game

    Well I'm getting absolutely fed up with us being informed of exactly nothing...


    All we get is the usual rubbish, that "we are still working on it and have cured hundreds of bugs but we don't have a release date yet for the revamped HTML5"


    We get this every month or so, and nothing else. And yet the game gets worse all the time..


    I have never before come across such a set of cowboys in over 20 years of online gaming.

    It would be nice if this change was communicated before applying. Again we are supprised with something nobody was aware of because of lack of communication.

    I'm sorry to say but how can a company who designed a game where communication is one of most important tools so sloppy with it's own communictation?

    Now come on..... Be realistic.... Of course Travian communicate everything, amongst their own people.

    We are only players and paying customers so we don't really matter... What right do WE have to have information before we have to decide something.

    Well whatever the outcome from any Q & A session...... :-


    Travian are totally deluded if they think it will appease the players.


    The facts of the matter is that HTML5 didn't work.

    You all reckon it will be another month before you can get an update out to all

    The game is getting worse, day by day........ Hour by hour

    One can spend as much time refreshing.... OOOOpoooppppp... SORRY... Refresh don't work any more most of the time. You have to go back to lobby and start the game again.... sometimes more than once to get anything to work.

    Up to 3 mins from starting to reschedule trains to actually getting them there.... Provided you don't have to do another refresh., sorry, reload from lobby to see if all have actually taken..


    The game is now getting virtually unplayable. And one thing is for certain.


    If I have to put up with another month of this crap, well I will not be here, and I'm guessing a lot more will not be either.

    What happened to the 'We have stopped fixing all problems, but will still look at major ones'.


    That went out of the window didn't it


    Bottom line is that you have a game that no longer works

    New players leave within days even more than usual because they don't want a game that don't work

    Long standing players are only staying with the game because of friendships made via the game... The game does absolutely nothing to keep our attraction any longer.


    Never mind the technical stuff, that many of us do actually understand....... What about the people that don't.... All they want is a game that is playable .... And right now this is the biggest heap of CRAP I've ever seen in 20 years of gaming..


    And to anyone who does not like what I've said... TOUGH....Many will like it even tho they will not have the guts to say so.

    Hi NiSiuba,


    yes, this issue occurs if you have more than four saved schedules. The bug is registered in our system.


    Kind regards

    Always the same stock answer to most thing.

    Despite many times of asking and being totally ignored players still have no idea what is happening about this "Massive" update supposedly coming soon.

    This was stated as hopefully within 3-5 weeks 8 weeks ago.

    There is an update happening right now, but NOTHING posted about what it is, what might be different and improved, so we are all just waiting to see how little has changed and what else has been broken..
    As you never tell the players anything we just have to wait and see how bad it is after another non update

    To make sure you don't lose any progress you made with the old login bonus, everyone will start with the new mega bonus.

    I thought todays update was to fix the shop...

    I still see it, albeit with the new look under the old 'Info' panel. Specific bonuses per day but with a super bonus on day 14/7. depending on Scenario


    Have you altered it from what was originally published as to what it would be, and where it would be, like in the shop, not in the game screen????

    I think there are too many updates in the game!


    I sort of agree with that... There are far too many updates that do nothing to improve the game. In fact as has just been proven, just break something else.

    Not enough, meaning barely any, that improve the playability of the game. Nor, except for 'soon' do we get any indication of when such updates might happen

    Will you stop fixing bugs completely now?

    No, we continue to fix high priority bugs, especially if they can be transferred to the update.


    Surely bugs that prevent us seeing things, like Messages/forums ingame, like where the city/president bonuses are displayed (covering what we need to see) are a priority... So when Can I start running my screen as it should be run instead of having to have everything text wise blown up to 150% to get anywhere near seeing what I need to

    The stock answer to this Rhoswen is that they cannot compromise the single players ability to play how they wish.


    What they fail to understand is that they are continuously compromising the team play aspect of the game, which in actual fact also affects the individual play of all corp members that play for a City/Region. So they are contradicting themselves all the way down the line.


    You are right... The game is now biased towards individual Freehaulers/non team players, which discriminates against at least 50% of players on any server.


    How is that a fair and balanced way of running a game?????

    As far as I'm concerned the whole messaging system as it is right now is totally rubbish.


    For a start, you cannot see half of the threads properly, they cut off at RH side.. NOT all... system messages are OK

    You cannot edit any mistakes that go in

    You cannot delete threads that are no longer needed

    As has been said, you cannot make any a true Read Only

    You cannot scroll up and down properly... it can and up anywhere


    Need I go on...


    Out of game apps like Discord are so much better... More versatile and much more reliable


    Even people with only 720P screens are having to increase Text size in their computer settings to see all of the ingame message threads.

    If I run my 1440P screen at 100% then I lose literally half of most message boxes, RH side cut off... Even with text at 140% I lose some of it.

    Any larger and everything else looks FAR too large...
