Hall of Fame - Defenders Edition

  • Because let's face it, defenders are the dark side of Travian.
    They are fundamental in every part of the game, but seldom they receive the right amount of praise they deserve. Hammers are nice and good looking in reports, but a 200k hammer consume just as 200k defences troops. Defenders work hard just as offender. They represent the backbone of every kingdom.


    Basically there are 2 categories in which to compete for defenders:

    • Personal number of defences (for example the player "Mizrach").
    • Number of defences in collettive walls (for example the kingdom "SPQR").

    As with the Hammers topic, we need to have the usual king/duke/gov categories divided in 1x/speed servers. Additionally we need a WWs/normal villages division as troops consume half of normal on WWs. Treasures villages have more crop production than normal villages, I'm inclined to dedicate a separate category for treasures, but we need to see how many reports are posted.


    So, if you want to compete for "personal number of defences" please share a report or a screen of the troops recap. You also need to post server name, role of the player (king/duke/gov) and every informations that is useful. Only def infantry and light cavalry count as personal defence troops.
    If your kingdom want to compete for "number of defences in collettive walls" the same infos needs to be written, but every troops count as defensive.


    I'm sharing a few examples to make you understand my ideas for this topic. Please spread the word and share reports and screens if you want to be included!

    Pob acc

    Teuton King (dual account of Nemesid#NL Mayo & Jak )


    Sorry for not having exact numbers, but we had around 315k-320k troops at peak and estimated around 800k troops built over the 5 months,

    it was an amazing server to play def & we managed 1,492,392 def points in total.


    A lot of players overlook Teutons when playing def, but we've found them to be a great choice

  • Georgi Not too much, because of the clan diplomacy we dont get too much atack, but if the ThePL dont hit they own ww its still enought to get the top1 deff position (so its only second place this time 8)) :) When this deff size print screen was maded i have only little more than 400k point as i remember. If you focus the deff points, Nemesid#NL Mayo   Jak strategy is way better, just in a gov account and with few deff action its not worth to try to me this time ;) + I hope we will see more report here, just like the offensive hammers topic, we have more good deff player in travian as i think 8) Let's go all, and show your skills:love:

  • Insane! How were you feeding them?

    We probably produced more troops all round but the maximum we had was 330k consumption if I remember correctly (we produced 50k def troops per week non stop for 10 weeks, maybe more, and before that we were scaling up, so overall produced was around 750/800k all round

  • I said your srategy is better, i train around 750k+ deff to (natars+deffs ect. kill some) but i focused more the infra and less the production, so i make 24 village account, with 17 lvl 15c and reserves stolen goods ect. so you start train so much ealier, i train so much faster, your strategy better to the kingdom ( because you can help the deff before the ww-s come, i have only around 50k deff before the 107. day when i start the full time production), my better to my crop consumption. But we make standing deffs (where the treasury holder feed the deff, because we have 400k+ treasures in the end, so we can do this) , and i make big trades ( i mean not 1:1 , so for example i give 200clay and get 250k iron, because i use gold its dosent matter too much, and other players not, so they get the res what hthey want ( but they write to me, or wrie in public, i dont write players about this, because as i think 1:1 trade the most fair 8) )and some player send more (some time lot of )crop to the ww-s to help me to feed my troops, I think if nobody help , i cant training all my stable. But its not hurt anyone game (because the top1 hammer , top3 roman hammer, top1 farmer ect. was the person who send more). But it was a really hard job to feed them, so i dont know when i will play this hard again :D So your 3 player account style also better, because one player not tired as much :) I plan to make more deff, and if im right i could have been 50-60k more deff if i work harder, but i farm less and trade less in the summer ( summer is not the best play time), so i dont have enought res to make more stable, and some times some of my barrack are empty , because i use all my res to feed the troops^^ And this style also not perfect, so if somebody calculated enought much , play with 1-2 dual or/and sitter its too hard to have better deff, so im curious :S But at least i can prove to if you are the top1 pop its dosent mean you dont have army 8o If anybody have questions or ect. you can write me in private, but i dont want to speak too much here, because i want see more good picture and less speak about my:saint: So have a nice game all, and make more big deff to show ; not only the hammer size can be amazing ;)

    You did great :) having someone else to feed will have helped you loads too

    yes you are correct we had a better strategy for the kingdom (we were king though, so was expected) also we had a lot more troops to feed than just our own with having standing in treasuries & we fed the most to the WW that round too, even though we didn't defend there.

    worth noting we had L18 crops at day 51 which really benefited the account & the queues ;)

    (we had 10 villages (11,443 pop) this including WW, so a much smaller account)


    p.s. i'm not sure your strategy was much faster, since we were dual building inf/cav a lot earlier & in all villages & running 2 x GB/S too (we had a lot more fights, so had a lot more killed & had to rebuild at speed all the time)


    playing as Gov though, really great results you had :) shame you were in a meta really, you were wasted in there (hope your king was proud, I know i would've been) :)
