    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...

    Why is the Lab not working correctly. It's supposed to generate a research point 25% faster with a plus account. That's not happening! This game has really gone down the tubes since switching over.

    I thought that as well, until I spotted some text that says that the 25%bonus has already been applied.


    The playability issues are now getting way beyond a joke.

    If I want to split my trains into 2 to follow 2 chains of integration it takes over 2.5 mins to actually do it, 7 tracks of travel for a Medusa. Before HTML this used to take around 30 seconds.

    I run a QHD screen, so 2560 x 1440 and I have to have my text boosted up tp 150% in order to be able to see messages.. Not ALL messages, System ones are fine, but the rest... they all cut off at the right hand side. Even someone in our group playing on a 720P screen has to have text at 115%.


    We have now had 2 updates, some servers 3, except that that 3rd one was downgraded to a HOT FIX for most servers.

    Both updates have fixed very little.. OK, I accept improvements in logging in, and in the 2nd adverts for + Acc holders. But what about the other 200+ known bugs that are labelled as " To be fixed at next update". " and they are barely touched.


    I'll say again. Travian needs to start looking at the playability issues so that the game can again be enjoyable, instead of it's current state of extremely annoying, and totally frustrating.

    We now have had at last an update.


    Just one little problem, nothing has changed with regards to playability.


    What has happened to all those 200+ bugs in the cute but not very good spreadsheet, that have been labelled all along as "to be fixed at next update"


    These are the issues that players want sorting out, the ones that really affect our ability to play the game with some enjoyment instead of

    complete frustration at so many things not working, so many refreshes in order to make sure what you asked to happen really has done.:cursing:


    So when are we going to get an update that actually does something towards the playability of the game.

    As soon as possible a seconde Fix for this bug will follow so the chance will be reduced again, that you don't get the second video.

    Two points here.

    1. As soon as possible could mean anything, it is on the list for next update according to your spreadsheet.

    But there is no clue as to when that will be either.

    2. Most important. The next fix is not really going to be a fix, so it seems. It will just reduce the chances of us missing a second video.

    That really is not good enough. +Acc holders are guaranteed a second video.. What we really need to know is WHEN are we going to get this feature restored to us

    Note that the guaranteed bonus video is a plus feature explicitly advertised in the gold shop for plus accounts when you purchase it, so if you are not able to fix it you must refund to anybody that has purchased gold on any HTML5 server or you could be accused of misleading advertising.

    I think it could be even worse than misleading advertising. It could be construed as breach of contract.


    One of the conditions for increasing the price of the +Acc was that we would get a 'guaranteed' second video. And yes, people pay money fpr gold in order to keep up a + Acc..

    So far today I have had 60% failure of getting 2nd video, even at times when I know that no-one else is watching videos.

    Yet now we are being told that the fix in place means anyone can get the second video provided they start that video before anyone else.


    I don't really care what pathetic excuses are put forth, the fact of the matter is that +Acc holders are guaranteed a 2nd video... Full Stop..


    I suggest that someone in Travian takes the responsibility of making sure that this happens, and soon, as it is upsetting many players and to be honest, I've stopped playing games in years past for less than this... You are all going the right way to lose a lot of players unless you get this sorted out once and for all.And Quickly.

    It is all well and good telling us that this is a known bug and will be fixed at the next update.


    MMMmmm not many fixed at last update yesterday, and I'm sure there were more on the list that would have been labelled 'to be fixed at next update'.


    So when is the next update likely to be.. This is costing us all sorts of losses, and creating a lot of frustration for players.

    With the coming changes, these reserved spaces for association members will count immediately towards the overcrowding rule of cities, regions or factions.'

    Doesn't alter the fact that even though someone has reserved a City for the association, the rest of the members still see it as overcrowded and cannot pre-register for hours or even days

    I like how you set that out. So other than above:-


    Good: Loads faster and looks better.


    Bad. Cannot copy into forums etc using mouse controls. It is possible using keyboard controls but that makes it fiddly for most


    Bad. Mouse over on Top Menu. Account, does not update anything that I can see. To get latest turnover etc you have to refresh the screen


    Bad. Keeps saying Internet connection was broken please reload, after leaving the screen for anything from 30 mins upwards free of any onput

    This cannot be refreshed, as it just gets stuck. you have to close window and start a new one and go back to lobby.
