Heya, I'm Alex. I've been playing Sandbox MMOs for close to 20 years now (starting with UO and Shadowbane) but those were all client-based games. I was always going to start playing Travian "soon" but never really got started because I dreaded the high time invest. I'm not 15 anymore and so I can't get up at 4 in the morning to defend against a Siege (as we've done a lot in SB in the early days). =D
I now played my first full round on COMx3 and I'll play another round when the Night Truce game worlds get rolled out.
See you in the game.
