You all know the reason. Katana explained it best, per se:
Considering competitive speed server players, in general, are required to purchase more gold then normal speed ones, this is a good amount of income for TG cramped up in a small timeframe. And the best of all, some of normal speed players will try these special servers (out of boredoom or just curious), some might even buy gold, it's just win-win for TG. And despite being pushed back, you all 'angry' folks will still wait for that normal speed com and going to start on it, be it a month from now, or two. Why? Because there is no other browser game like Travian, despite the poor state it is in now.
This schedule is doing of a clever manager who knows how to pull out the most $ out of a product. While highly unpopular, it is a good business decision to keep the game afloat and still make some profit out of it.
And lets not bash on Georgi.. He's pretty much the last person glued to TK and is trying his best to put out all the flames (and whatever else needed) which are only getting worse by the day since TG abandoned TK some time ago. Am not defending anyone, but he probably helped most of you in some way, be it through help center or direct contact, same as he did for me, most people probably don't even know it. Last two years have been nothing but constant bombardment and flame hazards here on forums, takes a lot of a person to remain their 'cool' for so long.
Not really 5 premade teams with 80+ players in each starting a server, most are likely to buy the big gold package to activate all bonuses right from the start.
It is more likely to make more money from that rather than overlapping more speed servers one on top of the other considering that most of the playerbase of normal server will NOT play speed servers because its completely different.
And I don't think people are bashing on Georgi, just on Travian Kingdom management in general for a shitty schedule that completely ignores the wishes of their longest customers. Georgi has the unfortunate job of communicating these decisions and therefore is the one facing the uproar of them.
