On Tuesday, May 18th, at 14:00 o'clock CEST (UTC + 2), the BBash game worlds will start. One hour before, at 13:00 o'clock CEST, we will roll out the newest game version 0.100 to all live worlds.
The downtime will last less than 30 minutes. Please plan your troops’ crop consumption accordingly.
All game worlds
On all Travian Kingdoms game rounds, you will be able to see the new Birthday Bash hero cosmetics. Please update your app on Tuesday to see them on your mobile devices, too. Unlocking the new cosmetics can only be done on the Birthday Bash worlds EUx3n and USx3n.
By igniting Super Fireworks you will get a chance to unlock a birthday cosmetic. See more below in the Only Birthday Bash worlds section.
Two new special achievements
You will be able to hunt for new achievements on the Birthday Bash worlds. Some of them might be reachable on all game worlds like the new special achievements Party Crasher or The more the merrier. As always, we do not reveal how to get special achievements. Let's just say, some preconditions of these two are linked to the things you only get on Birthday Bash worlds.
Two new regular achievements
We also introduce two new achievements we can talk about already. Both of them have 5 levels.
- Task: Be part of the same Kingdom Union for X days in a row
- Category: Social
- Levels: 10, 25, 50, 75, 100
Switching Kingdoms or becoming inactive resets the counter. Also, not logging in for a day will stop the counter until you resume playing (or become inactive which leads to a counter reset). The speed of a game round has no effect on this achievement.
- Task: Complete X adventures during night truce
- Category: Hero
- Levels: 5, 10, 20, 50, 200
This achievement is only available on night truce worlds, including the Birthday Bash worlds. Adventures only count when the hero will return. Short and long adventures each count as one adventure towards this achievement.
Raids Filter in Rally Point
As you can see in the screenshot, there will be a new filter in the rally point for raids. This will make it easier for you to cancel outgoing farm list raids quicker. You can also identify raids in the unfiltered list easier thanks to the new icon.
This was a recurring player wish from several domains and players. I want to thank Orange--d for this post with mock up Rally Point raid filter.
More storage on speed rounds
We are increasing the storage space for Crannies, Granaries, Warehouses, Great Granaries and Great Warehouses for all tribes.
The storage room for x3 speed rounds will increase by 1.5. For special x5 speed rounds, it will increase by 2.
We have tested more storage space on a past test round. Now, everybody will be able to benefit from it. This includes the currently running speed rounds, too! You will have more storage capacity after this version roll out.
Only Birthday Bash worlds
Even more achievements
Besides a special achievement you can unlock for all with the upcoming BBash forum contest, there will be another special achievement only available on the Birthday Bash worlds called Pyromaniac. In addition, there is one regular achievement with 5 levels.
- Task: Stockpile X Fireworks on birthday bash game worlds at the same time
- Category: Hero
- Levels: 50, 150, 250, 350, 450
Even though, this is a regular achievement, fireworks are only available on the birthday bash worlds. The more villages you will have, the more fireworks you will be able to ignite at the same time.
This year, fireworks will not just be valuable to reach the community challenges. Your villages’ inhabitants will be grateful for the fantastic light show and gather up some rewards for you when night truce ends.
This may include some Gold, silver or some free card games. In addition, you might get some hero items you already know and special items only available on the birthday worlds, like Black Powder. More about those items below.
Upgrade regular Fireworks into Super Fireworks for even better rewards. Additionally, only Super Fireworks will get you a chance to unlock a birthday cosmetic. The first time you will shoot Super Fireworks, one of the customizations is guaranteed.
By clicking on Fireworks, Black Powder or Super Fireworks in your hero inventory, you open a window with two tabs. One tab is for stockpiling (Super) Fireworks, the other one for upgrading Fireworks to Super Fireworks. You can see the second one in the screenshot on the right.
You need 10 Fireworks and 1 pouch of Black Powder to create 1 Super Firework. Super Fireworks will count as 10 Fireworks toward the related community challenges, but as 1 when it comes to achievements.
Special birthday hero items
Here, you can see the special birthday hero items. They all have in common that you will only see them on EUx3n and USx3n and that they cannot be bought or sold in the auction house.
You can gain regular Fireworks through adventures, celebrations in the town hall, settling and especially through conquering a village.
Through igniting regular Fireworks, you will get a chance to receive Black Powder.
Plus, you can get Black Powder as a reward for reaching some community challenges or buy some in the shop.
Shop Deals on Birthday Worlds
Next to the usual Starter Package, there will be some Great Deals around Fireworks and Black Powder. Some can be bought with Gold, some with real money. The focus of these deals are on Fireworks and Black Powder and hence, increasing your chance to unlock even more Birthday cosmetics.
Which party hat is your favorite one?
Have fun playing and see you on the Birthday Bash worlds,
Your Travian Kingdoms Team
