    I've asked before, in one of the threads on the subject, and I just got a reminder it (and not having had a reply):

    Will medals and/or Career-points be updated?

    Today I got medal #193 "Special bonus V" for "watch[ing] 1000 video's in te Tran station".

    That took me 11 days, so I'm 'foul' of the 56 video's a day limit :-)

    I have no information on changes planned for the achievements at the moment, but I will bring it up internally.

    Your Rail Nation Team,

    I maintain that this change is motivated by Travian giving up on spending money to fix a broken system that over the five years since its introduction has proven unfixable and unprofitable.

    I don’t believe the limitations of videos is due to Travian looking after the health of their players. If this was the case, why is there no limitation on the time one can be logged into the game? I know many players who stay up during EG. Is that healthy, no, but certainty is allowed.

    If capping the advantages that a bot can secure is the real objective, then why not give support the tools to identify bot users. I don’t mean to be an armchair developer, but I would guess data can be collected on the time intervals between game events. Find they are always x seconds apart, you have found a bot user. Another thought is to randomly shift the center of the building screen when moving to the next player. I can’t think of a non annoying way to do the same on the widget, but certainly there are things that can be done to counter bots that do not make make legit players collateral damage.

    Developers, time is a competitive edge that can be enhanced with the bonuses provided by videos to keep up with those who spend vast amounts of money. If players are willing to sacrifice their time to watch 30 sec timers count down for a larger collection of bonuses, why restrict their access? A couple of things that I think has been failed to anticipate. How much revenue will be lost because there will be less videos to watch and therefore less discounted lotto tickets to be purchased? If you are taking away the competitive edge of players with time, will those with money spend less in the game because there is less competition?

    Thank you for your analyses. We have already made a statement on some of the points you made and they are not correct.
    You can read the statement here: Your Video Limit Concerns: Rail Nation Team Response
    Also, we are looking into options to provide a fun way of catching up to spenders as a free player, as we don´t think looking at videos is fun.
    There have been already some nice concepts from the community, we are still looking for feedback, so feel free to get creative.

    The login issue is now resolved and players can now log in without issue.

    If you continue to have login issues, please raise a support ticket.

    We apologise for the inconvenience.

    Starting on 01/03/2021 there will be a community event on the Rail Nation Forums and Discord, to celebrate the return of Fast Forward.

    The Fast Forward Festival will feature 6 prize bundles full of in-game goodies, hidden in a 12 x 12 grid.

    From 01/03 till 05/03 you have one chance to pick a tile on the grid to guess where the suitcases are hidden. If you guess the correct tile, you win the prizes. Some bundles can be won multiple times by players. However, the tiles are won on a first-come, first-served basis, so don’t miss out!

    You can also select 3 extra tiles by playing in the Fast Forward scenario and submitting a full screen, screenshot, to confirm it. :engine1:

    The prize bundles and how many times they can be won are as follows:

    • 1x Tycoon - 200 gold, 5 lotto tickets, 5 train coupons

    As an extra prize, the player who guesses the most correct prize tiles, will win the March Community Conductor title and have their name engraved on the Community Conductor Trophy. For more details on the Community Conductor Trophy, take a look at the forum post here:

    Thank you for your constructive feedback.
    As you know, I'm new at RN, not only my name is nEwW.

    I checked internally, and there are no plans at the moment to limit other game functions due to health risks.
    Please try to look at the change as a whole, with the additional information provided in our statement included, not only information released in one of the early blogs.

    First update of 2021: A new feature is coming! - Free browser-based online strategy game - Rail Nation

    Article "Video Watch Limit", first paragraph, let me citate:

    "As we introduce the incredible Pollux, we need to make sure that we keep video watching fair for all, whilst discouraging unhealthy behaviour like watching several hundreds or even more than a thousand videos per day."

    Thanks for the quote.
    The original post talks about the unhealthy part of watching hours and hours of ads, not that anything above 56 is unhealthy.
    As said in the official announcement, we are open to changes, which will be decided via the feedback we receive in March Global Survey.

    Hello everyone,

    I wanted to introduce myself shortly, although I have already posted several announcements on the forum and discord.
    My name is Csaba, I'm 27 years old Slovak "hardcore" gamer as many would say. I currently live in Prague, Czech Republic, but I´m originally from southern Slovakia. As many might know, the population there is mixed a lot, therefore I have also ancestors from Hungary.

    I play video games since my early childhood, and I must confess to you, I always loved all Tycoon, building, and strategy games, even though in the last years I have worked and played with the most popular game titles. I found out that Rail Nation brings back a lot of memories of the endless hours I spent in one TTD.

    The selection for the position of Community Manager for the International and Czech servers made me happy, and
    I´m looking forward to our joint journey on this moving train called Rail Nation.
