English ONLY server

  • Hello,


    I think you should reconsider making some servers english only, because now on com servers you got many russians who don't speak or understand english and it's hard to communicate with your governors/king !

  • Well it's problematic as they write in cyrlic, ok i can read cyrilic (if i really try), but still it's kinda silly talking trhrough google translate whole server, especialy as translates are sometimes same as if you'd just read it in russian, got no clue what other's trying to say :)

    The .com's are considered English only. So if you are finding yourself in a situation where it is not, then send in a ticket to the "Help Center"
    They can handle it from there.

    They might be considered english only, but you can play them in different languages, so people who got no clue about english come and play it, because they can play it in their native language (i gave russians as an example, because there's most of them and most of them don't speak enlgish) !

  • There are lots of players that don't speak Enlgish, and most of the chats I've been in are in Russian, frustrating (as an English only speaker), but I just get on with it. Google translate leaves a lot to be desired, and sometimes leaves me wishing I had just ignored the messages.

  • It's a systemic problem on COM, which means it's somthing Travian themselves need to address at a high level, perhaps by specifically having English and none English COM servers, and pro-actively enforcing the rules, waiting for players to report the issue is not working, and fro my perspective, when even on a none speed server I'm clearly far out numbered as an English speaker pointless me reporting, as I would be reporting 3/4 of my own alliance.

  • Best way to avoid that problem is simple. Don't play speed.


    I'm on com2, there's like 3 russians alliances and even our alliance has multiple russians who speak english very poorly and sometimes not at all. It's spreading to other servers too :D

    This is where the problem lies. It is left up to the players to report and unless you do then the rules cannot be enforced. So if you as players allow it to happen and turn the other cheek then not much can be done unless someone from TG stumbles across it. The .com's are Englsih only so you as players should report even if it means you are reporting your whole alliance. Inaction just breeds more problems to occur to where it's gets to a point where the game becomes almost unplayable.


    So do not sit by and allow rules to be broken. Many have left Legends due to the same problem. It is very easy to do as well. Just click on that little box to report the conversation. It gets sent to the Help Center who will then handle it from there.

    The problem is systemic, clearly getting players to report is not working, so exhorting them to do so, does nothing, the rules are Travians and if Travian want them to be respected Travian needs to enforce them. You would actually get more player reports if the problem were less, but as it so massively pervasive, it would be like me calling my local council everytime I saw litter in the street, a pointless waste of everyones time.


    The issue is not that the problem is not widely reported, it's that the problem is so wide everyone has given up reporting.


    Dejure COM is English speaking only - Defacto they are not English speaking, and only Travian themselves can address this.

  • Will they ever get their own server? Or will English speakers get their own server? I see a lot of IT/DE servers but not any English specific server. Have to deal with diplomatic issues with alliances where you can't communicate, so the only resolution is to catapult them to zero.


    One is more trustworthy when he speaks of his problems before his problems speak for him.

  • So what should i do when i'm only english speaking person in my kingdom (if i play as king) report my kingdom and lose governors ? As i said English isn't my native language, it's my 3rd language, i'm not trying to speak to everyone in my native language. Problem is you allow different language interfaces and nothing else, what do you expect ? And what is goal of this ? If it's english ONLY server ? Than leave interface in english and who doesn't understand it, won't bother to play, or there'll be just few of them, not 3/4 of server ! This things turn me away from the game, since i can't enjoy it anymore really. My native language isn't supported so i can't go play on national server, if i go on any other server i need to strugle with google translate to even say or understand something, so only thing left for me is english speaking server, which isn't that anymore as everyone speaks their own language !


    So problem is not in us players, but you, because you allow language change in interface, and even promote that server can be played in all available languages, what do you expect than ?

  • I don't know why i even bother, you show your whole respect to your customers by adding things, majority of players doesn't like, you ban rank 1 and 2 players in week 3 of server, than you need 24h to respond to their every message, than after 6 days you figure out they didn't do nothing wrong, unban them, don't even say sorry or anything ... you need to start understanding WE are your custumers WE make your salaries and by doing things like that will throw more and more away, i don't even know how you still didn't notice this, after all this years you're still making same mistakes, not listening to your customers ! If my people would be losing clients in my company at ratio you're losing them, we'd been closed long ago, but luckily we've happy clients.

  • The rules aren't enforced when you do report something anyway, since it's extremely easy to make it look like you haven't ignored the rules and are playing legally. This game WILL have the same problems with multiaccounting and bots that T4 and T3 have, it's just a matter of time. The earliest cases have been spotted, it's just not at that extreme of a level yet.

    So I just went back to check some reports I *did* make about none English (not even roman alphabet) player names and villages names, I am surprised and disappointed to see nothing happened.... Or did I misunderstand the rules? In which case it would have been helpful to me and the MH if they had replied to me that those names were not a violation.
