Add a delay for Hero xp.

  • In travian kingdom in war time travian veteran players abuse game mechanic where hero gain xp when killing a scout (one scout). This way people scout players only by using one scout as in war the only information you need to know is: is hero at home or not. My suggestion is to add 2-6h. delay on travian statistic. In my opinion statistic should be used only to compare players not to scout heroes.

  • Hey Mayo !
    If you really want to improve game community, and gameplay, i think you should be against that bug too !
    Because, with this bug, experienced players have unfairly advantage ( actually, not just an advantage it's an abuse and can destroy whole progress of a player w/o any good move).
    If you are happy about this bug and enjoying to use this, i am sorry, i dont believe (really) your concerns about growing game community.

  • If you want to scout an enemy when he/she is starts to attack you, you can send all of your scouts to his/her village, maybe you can see if the hammer is in the village or your scouts may die too, it's a risk and it's the real gameplay, or some of your kingdom members upgrades scouts to level 20 and trains as much as scouts and have a duty to scouting enemy villages during attacks, this is the strategy and this is the gameplay,
    But you want to use this bug and abuse it agaisnt your enemies, i understand you too, you may be right for your interests, but unfortunately, this is not a common interest for whole community.

    There are ways around it, you just have to work them out :)


    using the zerg tactic makes your team very predictable, so maybe the fault lies there

  • You can be scouted 1 second before sending units, hence it's impossible to do what you say.

    Thats true but its very unlikely to happen by accident. And sure, the enemy can try to do that on purpose but that means you have to calculate sending times for every possible target. And who really does that?


    @Zoo Keeper#EN @lylai#TR
    Why dont you just use this "bug" for your advantage by simply sending your hammer without hero?

  • So you expect players to be online around the clock and at the same time deal with workarounds like this every single day?
    I am sorry but some of us want to win while having fun, this is why people play competitive games. Not every person spends their entire day staring at pc and waiting for an attack, then trying to scout every attacking player while taking notes about their hero experiences! This kind of stuff makes travian unattractive to a large player base, I see that you dont want to lose your little advantage but it is not fun at all.

  • Ariakus, I do, and they do use it aswell to their advantage, it's just that they are taking it personal because of something that happened on a server and they can't keep things separate.


    Guys, instead of downvoting randomly, try to explain how it would be an abuse of the game and why it should be removed? There are ways to counter it, it's just a tactic like another, you used it against us, we used it against you. Keep an objective opinion on this.


    Btw, in case you didn't know, what is said on the embassy of a forum is called trashtalk, it's part of what travian community used to do and it doesn't have to be taken seriously.

  • You guys are, just look at the above comments, upvotes, downvotes, without even reading the comments.


    Anyway, more seriously, ACK, your argument is invalid in my opinion, the game is spent on time management, strategy, predictions, organization and planning. This thing can be avoided and dodged in many, many ways.
    The game is already casual enough where meta's can win relatively easily without much effort. Reducing possibilities and mechanics for outsiders that can make a difference against metas really won't make the game easier, or more casual, it will make the game more boring.
    Fortunately they are taking some steps in the direction to reduce metas.


    This is a really nice occasion to learn some new stuff and not repeat the same mistakes in the future, it's not by removing the problem that you will improve or the game will be funnier.

  • also this bug is not only about your spending game time, thu rule is simple, if you want to scout succesfuly, just scout with as much as scouts, you have to take this risk,
    It will be more funnier in this way.

  • This kind of player does not care about fun, they only care about winning to feed their ego by petty bugs they find. Call them meta or tactics or anything you want, this is an exploit that makes the game unfair for other players.

    nah, i dont think the idea is quite good.. since if you use farm list and you on the top robber you'll be pump up by the points.. and its for sure that you want to see your point increasing like crazy while leaving others on the list.. and this gonna make the game more interesting!!
    well you can say that the delay only on hero.. but 1st developer will need to work hard for it since all the updates on statistic is on the same delay (maybe) and 2nd.. 2 hours is too long.. just imagine that you on the top 10 hero of the server and you want to be 1st and lastly when server ended the game put the statistics on wall of fame.. and with 2 hours delay you cant see all things that happend on the last 2 hours neither the top 3 hero or others and need to wait 2 more/less hours for that.. so i dont think this a good idea

  • So any potential players are "outsiders", I am sorry but "you need to get a life".

    Okay, that was pretty random, I won't take it personally. I don't like to assume things I have no idea of what I'm talking about.


    Guys when you calm down and you are ready to discuss it calmly like adults I'm sure every member of the forum will be glad to talk this issue with you guys.


    I'll just say this, if you think that spending more time in game influenced our scoutings on you, you are greatly mistaken and once again, try to see the bigger picture.
    (Little hint: the scoutings on you lylai weren't necessary)

    or maybe they can hide after " , " numbers from hero exp,
    for example your hero has 120.467 exp, the game can show this as 120k.
    there will be always solutions if they want to fix this bug.

    it's not about scouting me or you, Mayo, it's about the game. we are not talking com7 issues here.

  • , if you want to scout succesfuly, just scout with as much as scouts, you have to take this risk,

    One scout attacks are not "successful". They only give you one information. Hero is in that village or not. For everything alse you have to snet a "real" scout attack.
