... doesn't make it a bad game.
Is the cry of the Travian Fanboi.
No, what makes it a bad game is the fact that the best advice anyone can give you if you get farmed by a big alliance or catapulted or 'crop locked' is "delete your account".
Seriously - check the official forums.
Imagine a game of Chess where the advice if someone captured your Rook was "resign and restart"?
It is a production race. Pure and simple. And an RMT production race at that.
You pay real money to buy gold to increase your production output by 25%... so those that don't pay money can't compete.
Compare this to games like Urban Dead, Pardus and a host of others.
Yeah, you have premium accounts there too - but it doesn't stop people competing because of the way the game is designed.
You come up against a "Plus Account" player in Travian and you can either buy gold too or give up.
Not to mention that it is not an MMORPG. It is a Logistic Spreadsheet management 'game'.
Can't believe it's listed here.
Flame away Fanbois - but be warned I can link to threads on this in the official forums.
Nothing says irony like spelling ideot wrong.
