    Balls, you've argued me into a corner there :p In this context there is definite 'morality' in the war, that 'morality' comes from the rulebook though. I'll continue to draw a line at actual cheating.

    Just to say it though, you missed half of the quote with Clausewitz. Its an extension of politics by other means, morality exists in normal politics, but war is a completely different stage. Its a continuation but not the same or subject to the same norms.

    cannot see what all the fuss is about ..... it is a war game so rules of war should be as in real life. Snipers , turncoats , spies , traitors , commanders , scouters , transporters , fighters , deserters , conscientious objectors (plenty of those) and i am sure many more types of people. The problem as i see it is people pay money and time and hate to see it all destroyed or lost and on that basis a lot of players will do whatever it takes to try to save it without going into a fight .... only way in my opinion to deal with it is to make a server with the enemy already there to start with .... make the natars the enemy and go into the server as one alliance (only allow one sect to sign up for it) then see which "ALLY" can do the hard yards. Max 100 players for that team and the only person holding the codes to enter that realm is the intial signee. Make several servers , start them at regular intervals and not 5 month waits for start up and have a real bloody war for once ... maybe it will bring the punters and players back to Travian.

    when you find a village that's giving away over 14k resource ever other hour you send a lot of troops, I did find it bizarre what he was defending it with though, and he had added more in between each hit, I lost just short of 450 ECs he lost 1004 clubs 354 axes 98 scouts 579 paladins and 17 Teutonic knights, so he probably came off worse than I did

    This server is completely dead... a ridiculous amount of inactives / banned players knocking around, pretty much nothing outside the Top 20 alliances and then the metas knocking around are just ridiculous. The south-east consists almost solely of LC/LCA/LCA2 players. They have pretty much no competition, and a massive amount are just simming away under the safety of the meta. When did people stop having fun and fighting each other? Or teaming up and agreeing to alliances based on merit rather than just assimilating into the collective?

    Granted alliances can be expected to come together to fight for WWs, but from the beginning it's literally been a case of spawning in a quadrant and joining a meta!

    Everyone wants to win / survive but it just feels like no-ones even bothered putting up a fight!

    /rant
    I always thought a meta was multiple alliances working together making a quad unbalanced and pointless, LC are one alliance working for itself, no confeds no naps we had a threat in Khans but it folded under a little pressure and leadership probs which is a real shame as anyone can tell you LC love a good scrap, every one in our quad is an enemy always is that way, Its not Lcs fault no decent alliances showed up this server

    Can only kill whats put in front of you

    To help get more people playing travian could do something like make an app that notifies you when you haven't played in a while then a lot of new players would return to the game, a lot of apps do this and I think it works well but since travian doesn't have an app the only way they could notify you is by email. Also In the message you get from the quest at the start of the game they could link you to something that gives you a better understanding of the game like a forum on how to develop your village for new players and send the Help I'm a farm message when beginners protection ends.

    Another thread about the woes of Travian; before it was hijacked by the killing raiders debate...

    The idea that this is war and pointless rudeness (such as defending a village against a raid) is laughable; it is a game and even though a war game it is still a game. Somebody being a git in-game is not justified being a git just because Trav is a make-believe war game for big boys and girls that like to kill digital pixelised soldiers. Rudeness is about more than the game; especially when you may meet the player you were rude to later on.

    With regards to the game; it has been fun but yes it has been losing players for a variety of reasons. So many things... It missed a trick with not having a mobile app. The owners of the game did not embrace Trooptools and other sites/tools setup by fan communities that were helping make Travian simpler, easier to manage and better (thus expanding the market faster and using the fan communities to their advantage instead of fighting against them); they did not scale the game thus separating novices from expert players as most MMORPGs do (the result being that noobs and experts face off each other; to the former's dismay and the latter's intense boredom).

    The more I think about it the more Trav feels like it lost its chance...

    Could Trav Kingdoms reverse this? Well...

    I seriously doubt he has the stones to admit what account he's on, he knows he'll be persecuted ^^

    Though in fairness, if I've annoyed a server(or in my case, an entire domain) I would usually keep myself hidden until at least after artefacts
