The most important point in my last post is the impact dota has had in Wc3 era, with debut of Dota 1 in Wc3 all others Moba and Similar had become completely obsolete, because who have created and edited Dota had better ambition and innovative idea, the majority of players left old Moba and Similar to join Dota, and trust me when i say Dota has drastically (Dota is not only 3lanes, Hero and items) change the game during the years, to explain better this concept i need to write for hours and hours, but this is not the place and the context, i don't want fall in off topic.
An example is Clash Of Clans, the difference of Travian and CoC are irrelevant in this my post, CoC is an App, Travian a Browser Game etc etc, i don't care here, but i think CoC made obsolete a lot of game mechanics of Travian.
Look the farming system of CoC, is irrilevant if the player who you attack is inactive or active, in every single attack there is strategy and gratitude, the most of top raider in travian attack more inactive accounts, there is no strategy or gratitude in that, is a boring system, deleterious system, i see a lot of people play a random game like League Of Legends and some times press Alt+Tab for send the Farm List, this is not playing Travian.
I don't want transform TK in CoC, but i think some game mechanics of CoC can be interesting for Travian.
During the years of travian i see a lot of new players who spend a lot of time and resource for building Cranny, i think we need to consider a rework of resource protection, an automatic resource protection OR (For example) put in the Warehouse the Cranny concept, every level of Warehouse automatically protect X X X X resource.
I'm veteran player, rarely someone attack me, so i never build cranny, but i can't just think about only my interests, is important for me think and care for new players, for new generation of players, or Travian has no future if we think only for veterans players, we need to talk about this game mechanics.
Considering and talk about the possibility to put a Bonus automatic raid resource similar to CoC when you attack an active player, and add a +X% based on population difference from attacker and defender.
I see a very lot of players quit the game after loss all troops, or have fear to send attacks or reinforcements, considering and talk about the possibility to put to the Hero a new ability who automatically regen X% of troops lost.
We Veterans forgot what it means be a new player, Veterans like me, who started the game in 2008 or before, have some difficult to know the needs of new generation of gamers.
I see a lot, very very lot of new playes who have fear or refuse to send their troops, because in their mind they think "If i send my defenses i can't defend my village" or "If i send my defenses and i lost them all i'm vulnerable" or "What i personally instantly gain if i send my troops ? nothing", considering and talk about the possibility to put every weekend a bonus resource you gain based on % of Def and Att points you do during the week.
The new player don't need to think he lost all troops and a waste of a lot of resource, you lost some troops for help your Alliance ? a % of this troops is saved and come back in your village in 24 hours, at the end of the week you take some resource based on your Def % bonus.
I think we have an huge problem in Travian, nothing keeps you in the game for a long time, classic problem, play the random game like League of Legend and some time Alt+Tab for control Travian Account status, this is a huge problem who affect all players of Travian, we need something who encourage players to stay more time to Travian, the Achievements System ? nah... not enough and useless system for a lot of players, i've been a lot of time Admin/Co-Admin of a lot Alliances, in time of night missions to waste time we played some random games like Atwar, Risiko Online, Briscola, Scacchi, Dama, Tetris etc, so.. here my idea.
In Travian Kingdoms we have a """""""Card Game""""""", why dont create a true, simple and tematic Card Game ? you can already imagine what cards you can have, Roman, Gaul and Teuton troops, if you think is a good idea you can too add some "spells" like Bendage, Cage, etc, in the dead times of Travian players can affront other players in the Card game.
