It's probably about time Travian moved to HTTPS.

Whilst there's an argument against it, the fact is a lot of people will/do use the same passwords everywhere and so anywhere with an identity should use HTTPS throughout after login.

I belive this has been brought up recently with HQ. I have added it to my weekly report.

Someone did mention it. I've just added the links for some context.

This feedback has been acknowledged and steps are being taken to improve security both ingame and on all the sites.

Traviangames is migrating all services to use secure connections and SSL.

There will be some downtime and plenty of work for this to happen but once the process has started with new hardware then the changes should happen relatively quickly after that.
