Hi again guys
as a player myself I understand this experience can be frustrating. Our team knows about this behavior and understands the possible negative outcomes.
When a vice king goes inactive after 21 days, this will happen. It is important that the vice king is playing himself and is not just kept active by sitters and/or duals.
In order to be successful and enjoy playing Travian Kingdoms it is also important to play alongside reliable team members
It sucks if this happens, but it's kinda part of the game, that you have to build up a trustworthy kingdom with trustworthy members, especially in king/duke positions.
We are working on finding a lasting solution to improve the relationships between kings and vice-kings. We don't want a quick fix that makes everything worse but it has to fit everyone: small game rounds and bigger ones, small kingdoms and bigger ones, premade teams and new teams. If you want to help us with it and have a concrete idea, please share it here with us together with the reasoning behind it. Your feedback is always welcome and highly appreciated! Especially when you also tell us, why you want a specific change.
