    Dear players,

    as stated here: Halloween Hunt - the second weekend

    we are focusing on improving the chat stability for comx5.

    To do so, our developers intentionally reset the chat every 3 hours. During this reset, you will experience a very short disconnection and see the red icon pasted-from-clipboard.png on the bottom left. We are doing this to prevent longer connectivity losses.

    To narrow it down and make it more transparent for you, these restarts will only happen on the following full hours:

    3:00, 6:00, 9:00, 12:00 am/pm CET (UTC+1)

    These resets are a temporary solution to the connectivity issues while we are working on a permanent fix.

    Thank you for your understanding,

    Your Travian Kingdoms Team


    Dear players,

    many of you reported lagging issues over the weekend again. Not just our developers were monitoring the game round closely. The whole Kingdoms team is focused on the Halloween Hunt world. Many of us and people from other Travian departments are playing on this game round are emotionally involved in comx5.

    It’s frustrating for us, when our efforts are not visible. Like mentioned in a previous statement, there are several different issues leading to what you see as lagging. Our developers combined their work force with developers from other departments. They were able to fix some of them, improving others and we work hard on improving your (and our) playing experience. Rest assured we want these issues fixed just as much as you do.

    That is why the focus has shifted. The errors are not about general being stuck in-game anymore. Mostly, the chat is not reachable, or troop movements are not updated.

    Our recommended workaround for now is: go easy on your F5 key. Please do not refresh too often. Instead, try to open a new tab to see troop movements.

    Whenever you experience any issues, report here: [comx5] Lagging issues

    We are reading all your posts.

    Our main focus for now is improving the chat stability.

    Your Travian Kingdoms Team

    P.S.: Seize the day and participate in the forum contest! Today is the last full day. We will close participation tomorrow morning. Halloween Hunt - The Forum Contest

    Hi Wahlberg

    you are referring to the rewards of the registration second registration goal: As soon as we've reached 7.500 player on the Halloween Hunt, every player got 1x scroll and 1x instant delivery.

    it was already known in the beginning what the rewards were and how much each.

    If you like these kind of Quests, and want us to have more of them but with different rewards, feel free to start a thread in the suggestions section :thumbup:: Ideas / Wishes / Suggestions or in the RU community.

    I am closing this thread now because everything about this topic is stated already

    kind regards,


    @all: please keep it civilized and follow the forum Netiquette

    the suggestion for the limitation came up as a help for handling the lagging issues of comx5.

    with all posts here strongly disagreeing, I am closing this discussion now. We won't consider this option.

    Thank you all for sharing your feedback to this topic.

    El Rodriguezo if you suspect some players to be multis, or if someone is assaulting you in the chat, please report them via the Help Center. Only when we know about these cases, we can do something against it.

    kind regards,



    Dear players,

    as mentioned in this thread: Halloween Hunt - 3rd day lagging issues

    we were monitoring the Halloween Hunt game world very closely over the weekend.

    Other than the Card Game getting confused with the European winter time and some rare single stopped events, the Halloween Hunt round ran smoothly.:love:

    You all were very active over the weekend :thumbup:Thank you! You’ve also completed two quests and caught a lot of spiders and bats! Don’t forget to collect your rewards in the browsers.

    There is an iOS App bug connected to the Night Truce notifications. We’ve already submitted a hotfix and you should be able to update your Kingdoms App today.

    Have you already participated in creating the special achievement for you all?

    You all deserve a special achievement for sticking with us through thick and thin. We are so grateful having you as players and appreciate your supportive behavior. <3

    If you haven’t already, go to the embassy and participate in the name and description finding process for this special achievement. We only grant this achievement to the players on comx5.

    Create your special THANK YOU achievement

    Check out the great ideas that players already put there and give a like to your favorite idea.

    Your Travian Kingdoms Team

    I am closing this thread now, because I am repeating myself in my answers.

    LoCrus Like stated before, I know your game changing ideas because the local community managers translate and share the wishes and ideas provided by players. Huge game overhauls like getting rid of the World Wonders made it on our list for special game round ideas. But we don't have so many special rounds during the year.

    Have you already checked out Arkheim? This is a new Travian game in the making in which we are more flexible in changes of the gameplay.

    Why is there not even a mention that there is a discussion about this topic in any other forum (german for example)?

    2 reasons: Because we will start the same discussion in the German forum section soon. The feature concept is already translated. And because the COM and RU community was affected by guerilla attacks first and we've already discussed with them several solutions. This is the follow up discussion on this topic with them.

    Please don't complicate the game. Please keep it simple.

    Yes, that is what we want, too. That is one of the reasons why we don't want to implement too many unnecessary restrictions. Only the most needed ones. What would help with keeping it simple in your opinion?

    In the 5x round so far I'm quite happy with the way the wonders look in terms of this rule.

    The area for no relocation could even stand to be bit bigger by another 2-5 tiles than it is since the area directly around the wonder tends to be bare of oasis already meaning kingdoms don't want to relocate there in the first place and the wonder itself does take substantial chunk of the blocked area as well.

    Alternatively more oasis could be added under the wonder to make it more valuable now that you can't just dump an entire team there day 1?

    Thank you for sharing your feedback! Keep in mind that the special rules only apply on 5x though.

    We don't want to make this area more valuable in adding more oases there. It's already an advantage if you have experienced players within your kingdom who know how to settle there quickly. We don't want to unbalance it any further.

    Interesting that you say the area could be even bigger :/ @all: any opinions about this?

    so any player joining a server would have 6 weeks to find a kingdom

    on a standard round you mean? Would this really be a fix or would it just shift everything to week 5 and week 6? I know where you all coming from with the time limit. Breaking it down to a specific point in the game though makes it difficult.

    Would the better solution be to say until a player trained X troops like some of you mentioned? Or would that be a disadvantage against players who lost their starting team through no fault of one's own?

    Лентяй thank you for sharing your idea. It's worth to discuss it in a dedicated thread. That is why I moved it from the menhir discussion and created this own thread.

    @all: What do you think about this idea?

    My concerns: there is not just one way on how to play Travian Kingdoms. What if these trainers don't follow the rules or what if the the team members don't want to follow orders but want to be part of the decision making?

    What exactly do you mean with 5.?


    Dear players,

    and we did it again. We are so happy for your continuous big interest in the Halloween Hunt! We highly appreciate that so many of you are playing.

    Unfortunately, our efforts from the first day weren’t enough. Comx5 had again lagging issues for a couple of hours yesterday.

    Fortunately, some of the previous fixes helped a bit and the lagging was shorter and softer this time.

    We have now implemented additionally a new, enhanced solution. The Halloween Hunt world is running smoothly right now.

    But since this is a new path we are taking, we need more time to assess it. We will take this time over the weekend and monitor comx5 closely. That also means, that there is no compensation yet since we cannot estimate the total extent yet.

    Be assured, we have high hopes that the game world is stabilized.

    You will get another update the upcoming week.

    What we already know is, that you all deserve a special achievement for sticking with us through thick and thin. Thank you all. We are so grateful having you as players and appreciate your supportive behavior. <3

    Go to the embassy and participate in the name and description finding process for this special achievement.

    Create your special THANK YOU achievement
