    Dear players,


    On Thursday (June 8th 2017), between 5am – 7am UTC, there will be a network hardware change. This will lead to short outage of less than 5 minutes right after the change and will have an impact to all gameworlds and forums.


    We're sorry for the inconveniences this may cause!

    Answer for question 1:
    50 cities



    Answer for question 2:


    Elijah T. Dalton, for English US or William L. Smith, for English UK.



    Answer for question 3:


    Apollo



    Answer for question 4:


    5 hours and 34 minutes

    a. One waggon carries 1t of wood, so each delivery contains 2t of wood;
    b. 60 minutes per hour / 2 minutes each delivery = 30 deliveries per hour
    c. This makes 60t of wood delivered each hour

    Hour 0 (start)
    Stock in the city after consumption: 0 tons
    Delivered: 60 tons

    Hour 1
    Stock in the city after consumption: 60 tons
    Consumption: 6 tons
    Stock in the city after consumption: 54 tons
    Delivered: 60 tons

    Hour 2
    Stock in the city after consumption: 114 tons
    Consumption: 11.4 tons
    Stock in the city after consumption: 103 tons
    Delivered: 60 tons

    Hour 3
    Stock in the city after consumption: 163 tons
    Consumption: 16.3 tons
    Stock in the city after consumption: 147 tons
    Delivered: 60 tons

    Hour 4
    Stock in the city after consumption: 207 tons
    Consumption: 20.7 tons
    Stock in the city after consumption: 186 tons
    Delivered: 60 tons

    Hour 5
    Stock in the city after consumption: 246 tons
    Consumption: 24.6 tons
    Stock in the city after consumption: 221 tons

    After consumption at the beginning of hour 5, 254-221= 33 tons of wood still need to be delivered.
    33 tons divided by 2 tons per delivery = 16.5 tons
    Each delivery takes 2 minutes, so 17 deliveries x 2 minutes = 34 minutes.



    The players with the most close answer to question 4 were CEM and Lathe (their answer was 5h and 32 minutes). They have received 100 gold!


    All other participants had one wrong answer in their messages and we decided to reward each of you with 50 gold.


    Thank you for participating and we hope you liked the quiz. :)



    Your Rail Nation Team

    Dear railways fans,


    Answer correctly to the following questions, and you could win 100 gold!



    Question 1:

    How many cities does a server have?



    Question 2:

    What’s the conductor's full name?



    Question 3:

    On a classic server, you inspect a train after 50 days. You bought it with all the associated upgrades. It cost $820,000 and 86 research.
    The train has a tractive force of 9 and the reliability is 70%.
    Its top speed is 100 km/h and its acceleration is 6/20.

    Which train did you buy?



    Question 4:


    One Swallow is parked in the city. Tractive force is 2. The city requires 254t of wood. The stock of wood in the city is 0.
    Total travel time + waiting time is 2 minutes.
    Each hour, the city consumes 10% of the total wood stock.
    How long does it take to deliver all the wood?

    Dear players,


    A new round of COM-3 Smoke Chamber (classic version) will start on Friday, June 2nd, at 12 pm UTC.


    Keep in mind that due to unexpected events the planning can change and a delay is possible.



    Happy hauling everyone!


    Your Rail Nation Team

    Dear players,


    On Wednesday, May 31st, between 08:15 – 09:45 am UTC, will take place a maintenance for the following servers:


    [INDENT]COM-1 Steam Boiler
    COM-2 Firebox
    COM-5 Cylinder Head
    US-1 Crankshaft
    [/INDENT]


    We are sorry for the inconveniences this may bring!



    Your Rail Nation Team

    Dear players,


    Tomorrow, between 08:15 – 09:30 am UTC, will take place the maintenance for the following servers:


    [INDENT]COM-201 Big Ben
    COM-202 Loch Ness
    US-102 Grand Central[/INDENT]


    Last week's maintenance did not take place anymore, due to the general downtime of the game.


    We are sorry for the inconveniences this may bring!



    Your Rail Nation Team

    Dear players,


    As a compensation for the downtime today we created a bonus code.


    The Bonus code is:
    RN-IS-SORRY


    It’s valid until June 06th.


    Must be redeemed in the game options, not in the Gold shop (it can be redeemed on multiple servers, but just once per avatar).



    Your Rail Nation Team

    Update: We are having a very rough estimate now.
    First we will start up our background tools and services and then in about 30 minutes we will try to bring back our first RN server. Will keep you updated as soon as we learn more.

    Dear community,


    we are deeply sorry for the current situation and would like to update you about it. This morning our datacenter faced an issue that caused all our services to go offline.


    Travian Games has managed to solve the initial problems and are planning to bring back all the games one by one. As you can probably imagine, this will take quite a lot of time, due to the fact that we have more than 300 gameservers to deal with across all the games (subsystems and forums, etc. not counted).


    We will keep you informed via our communication platforms (forum & Facebook), so stay tuned for more information!


    Your Rail Nation team

    Dear players,


    We will have two downtimes this week.



    • Tuesday, May 23rd, between 08:15 – 09:15 am UTC, for the following servers:


    [INDENT]COM-101 Rocky Mountains
    US-101 Golden Gate
    [/INDENT]



    • Wednesday, May 24th, between 08:15 – 09:30 am UTC, for:


    [INDENT]COM-201 Big Ben
    COM-202 Loch Ness
    US-102 Grand Central
    [/INDENT]


    The downtimes are necessary for technical reasons. There is no changelog.


    We are sorry for the inconveniences this may bring!



    Your Rail Nation Team

    The correct answers are:




    Branson gets the 1st prize: 150 gold (Caesar Saladius, COM 101 Rocky Mountains)


    CEM was the second to correctly solve the puzzle and he has won 100 gold ( ﻉ√٥ﺎ- COM 101 - Rocky Mountains)


    Congratulations to both of you! Your Rail Nation knowledge is very good!


    We have rewarded with 50 gold all other participants, even if they had 1 or 2 mistakes. Thank you for trying!


    4nn4 - COM201 Big Ben
    Strictus - COM 202 Loch Ness
    Ayca Sen - US102 Grand Central


    We would appreciate any feedback on this contest. Was it too hard? Would you like to see more crosswords contests in future?


    Please post in this thread.



    Kind regards,
