Hello travian kingdom community!
You might know me, you might not know me, but I am not important in this situation. My words that speak facts are.
Before getting into the issues Travian Kingdoms has, I'd first like to take a look at the forum rules that are in place here
They can be found here:
As you can see, under 5. it states
The staff reserve the right to delete particular posts and messages without providing a reason for it.
Do not be suprised if you can't find this post in a few hours, as you can see staff has all the rights to silence me my posts without reason.
Some might know this as "Censorship"
(This rule is also applied to bans)
I will split my points into a 2 parts.
1.Travian kingdom staff does not know how to communicate
Travian forum rules are very limiting, so I will have to use speak without providing proof, but I will use common issues so everyone can relate.
As travian staff has all the rights to ban someone without a reason, it doesnt mean they do it...right?
Well, if any of you played this game, you might have heard about some of your fellow players getting banned without reason.
Travian kingdom staff sadly, does not ask questions and bans first, again, without reasoning.
But hey, they respond in 24h in the support centre, whats the issue?
Well, even 24h is probably too long for speed server, the issue is travian staff do not always respond in 24h.
Or they might respond in 8hours asking for more informations, then reply the next day, and then the next day and the next...You see where this is going?
Known players have been banned for random reasoning, only to be unbanned in 3 days. Imagine being unable to play 3 days for no reason. In travian, the most valuable
resource is time, which the staff can take away from you as they please.
2. Comx5 is a failure, a playtest server in disguise and also proof Travian Kingdoms does not really care about players.
You can use a lot of my points from the previous part, so I will not repeat myself here. I want to talk about the shitshow Comx5 is.
We all know how comx5 launched, and all the issues it had for days and weeks. But hey, it's an halloween event!
Finally kingdom is giving back to the players, everyone was soooo hyped.
Ok the start didn't go smoothly thats fiiine the server is sooo much fun to play.
Oh the servers still aren't working...some players are getting their second villages and I can't complete the tutorial...well thats fine...they said they're working on it.
The chat doesn't work weeks after the server started... but they're working on it!
Another day, another "we're working on it" response.
BUT HEY, WE'RE GETTING FREE REWARDS, IT'S AN EVENT!
wait what do you mean the rewards are worthless? oh a single scroll of experience...5gold...400 silver...
BUT HEY,WE ARE GETTING NEW GAMEPLAY ELEMENTS
wait what do you mean they're using comx5 as test server under disguise? they are using us to test new features?
Playtesting isn't bad, don't get me wrong. But hiding a playtest as a SPECIAL EVENT server is just plain disgusting. The mist is just menhir 2.0 and everyone knows that.
Oh wow you changed some attacking numbers to make it special,you changed the value of animals,as a programmer I know that took you what 10 mins at best?
Come on, you put no effort into anything anymore, but you expect us support you with money over money every round.
This is the time we start speaking up about all the issues kingdom has. I would go on and on about all the issues but I can not do that as I can't share any information
about support tickets without getting my post removed (look forum rules above) so I will just list a few more issues I sadly can't go into detail:
1)The staff does not understand their own rules, often going back on their decision, in the matter of hours, or days depending on when they respond to you.
2)Following up on 1), the staff does not consistently enforce their rules, same situations can have multiple outcomes.
3)The rulebook for travian kingdom does not cover most issues that can happen on a server, forcing players to search forums to even know if its allowed
because well, their policy does not allow them to tell you what will happen to a reported player (doesn't matter if they're guilty or not) and apparently that
means you will not get a response if the thing the reported player is doing, is allowed.
Thank you for your attention, share your opinion in the comments, let's start a discussion.
