I missed a place where to introduce ourselves, so I am opening this thread to give us that opportunity.
I think I will start with myself:
As you know I am Unknown, new CM for TK EN, still acting CM of TK ES until my replacement arrives, I been told soon.
My Travian live started back in 2006 with the original Travian, but if I want to be honest even earlier than that without knowing it.
I was an avid player of Age of Empires 2, of course online, in maps 4v4 where I would play sometimes for 8 hours on a row nonstop for a single game.
But, AOE3 came along and they stop supporting the servers where AOE2 was played online… this was before Steam even existed, so although I tried AOE3, it was nothing like the previous version, yes good graphics (for the time) but game play… not a chance. Not even 2 months went by before I was looking for a replacement.
And there, after trying several strategic games I arrived to Travian. That is what I was looking for, the perfect balance of strategy and team play.
When Kingdoms started on its beta servers, I tried it and loved it.
I stayed this long in Kingdoms because is a game where you choose how much you put into the game, you choose your involvement, you choose your time. You can manage the account with little or you can invest a lot of time in the finer details of strategy and game play.
The brilliant thing is that you get out of it as much as you input. I have seen great strategic attacks and defences planned in a team effort. That was time spent with people that, although were at the other end of the “internet” would become friends, people you trust and rely upon. I have seen friendships develop to relationships and people that met in any form of Travian become real life friends or more.
I just love it.
Outside Kingdoms I love reading, watching films and series that are historically based, yes, I love history too, I guess that is why the Kingdom’s theme fits me so well.
I like hikes in the open air, away from cities, although having lived for 14 years in London I am probably more a city rat than anything else.
And of course, nothing beats a good meal around a big table full of family and friends with good drink to accompany it. 😊
What about you?
Don't be shy, introduce yourself!
