    Dear players,

    Over the past week, we've watched in horror as the people of Ukraine have faced invasion and unimaginable, ongoing suffering initiated by the Russian leadership. We at Travian Games vehemently condemn this abhorrent act of war and stand in solidarity with the Ukrainian people, players, partners, and colleagues during this truly unsettling time.

    Nonetheless, we know that many Russians and players from our community oppose this invasion, and we will not hold them responsible. Therefore, we will not withhold Russian players from playing our games. We believe that decisions from a government and subsequent consequences do not speak for the entirety of its people.

    At Travian Games, we're one big family from many different cultures. We have players and colleagues around the globe, and seeing this truly affects us on a personal level. We are doing what we can to support the people of Ukraine through means of internal and external donations.

    Our thoughts are with everybody affected by this war, and we hope for a swift return to peace for the people of Ukraine.

    Stay safe, everyone.

    Dear players taking part in the Stress test server,

    Firstly, thank you so much for all your support in testing the server. It’s thanks to you that we can clearly see areas of improvements in our own setup as well as the provider.

    Once such area of improvement has been detected during that last Era change, which gives us reason to believe there is a high probability of the endgame crashing due to the high user load. If it does crash, that isn’t a bad thing. In fact, it’s extremely valuable for us as a learning opportunity to adapt our server setup as this issue is not on the provider’s side. So please, help us crash the Endgame!

    We want to give you advance warning of this and to settle any concerns about your hard-earned challenge gold. If the technical issue does occur, as a minimum all players who meet the 50.000+ prestige by endgame, will be awarded with 2000 gold.

    Otherwise, it will just continue as stated in the challenge:

    The total Gold reward will be as high as the number of active players in the endgame.

    For example, if 2,000 players play the endgame simultaneously, each of them will receive 2,000 Gold. What's more, every participant will receive the Community Hero Achievement Gold.

    To make sure we have the desired level of activity and players don't just grab the rewards, there are two conditions for obtaining them:

    1. At the end of the game round, you must have at least 50,000 prestige.

    2. You must have been active in the endgame.

    We also want to run a small test during the start of the endgame to test “Pre-registration” on the stress test setup. There won’t be a follow up round, but on the 10th of March you’ll have the option to pre-register.

    With all that in mind, don’t panic if things get disrupted on endgame start. You’re all doing an incredible job so far and the team are extremely appreciative of all your efforts.

    Thank you so much,

    Your Rail Nation Team

    Community Ambassadors: Workshop Meeting Notes

    Dear players,

    we are pleased to announce the publication of the Community Ambassador Trello board. On this board you can see the progress of the voted bugs and the meeting notes from each workshop.

    Please remember that the purpose of this Ambassador program is to have a clear channel of communication directly between the Rail Nation Team and the community. From this, the Ambassadors can explain how these bugs impact the community and the Rail Nation Team can not only gain a better understanding of the issue but also provide details of the limitations they face so that a potential resolution can be found that satisfies both the community and Rail Nation Team.

    This process takes multiple steps, information gathering and deeper investigation from both the Rail Nation Team and the ambassadors. So, keep in mind that time is needed to complete these steps.

    Known bug list

    We've heard the requests from the community to provide a list of bugs reported to us, prior to the Ambassador program. We've now provided the ambassadors with this list so that they can better facilitate the selection and understanding of the bugs you report for the workshop.

    As the list is rather extensive, it will only be made available to the ambassadors. However, we will add a list of 45 known bugs that the Rail Nation Team have recorded as a high priority based on your previous reports. Please take a look at this list and let the ambassadors know if anything is missing or incorrect.

    Click ➡️ here ⬅️ for list.

    The Trello board

    You can access the board via ➡️ this link ⬅️.

    The board is set up in a step-by-step progression system, from left (reported bugs) to right (done or fixed bugs).

    You can look at the "cards" under the workshop list, called "meeting notes" in order to review the meeting notes.

    Please note the board is in English, however your ambassador should be able to help you navigate and understand the setup. So, feel free to reach out to an ambassador for any clarification on the topics discussed in the workshop.

    We hope this helps bring a better understanding to the entire community and look forward to seeing the continued positive efforts from the Ambassadors in this program.

    Many thanks,

    Your Rail Nation Team

    Cari giocatori,

    sfortunatamente, a causa di un problema riscontrato oggi dal nostro provider, la lobby di gioco è stata inaccessibile per un breve periodo.

    Ci scusiamo per l'inconveniente causato e apprezziamo la pazienza dimostrata durante la risoluzione del problema!

    Il team Rail Nation

    Dear Players,

    It has been brought to our attention that there was a bug for the worker bonus on Platform X: Titans Of Economy as well as some other game worlds. There was a 10 minute window of downtime but this bug has now been resolved on Platform X: Titans Of Economy and everything should now be working correctly. The remaining game worlds will be corrected next week, which will also result in a small amount of downtime.

    Many thanks to those who brought it to our attention and thank you for your continued feedback and patience. It is truly appreciated!

    Your Rail Nation team
