I see your points and agree somewhat.
Spending money is not my issue on this game. I could spend €10 per week if I knew everyone was equal. But now I know there is some people spending €100 per week and getting an unfair advantage. That's why I suggest a montly subscription for a special server. Make it €10 per week or per month, we have to find out what people want to spend. But I think if World of Warcraft cost €14 / month that is a good example.
The makers should realize that they can make a lot more people happy that way. You can give a 10 day free trial on that server.
It is not true what you say. I can play this game all day long, but if some guy with enough money buys cages, buckets, potions, pieces of art there is no way you can compete. Even with all the time in the world.
I dont want this to be about Russians versus any other nation. We are all travian players and we all love to play a fair game.
