April 1st, 2010: An Important Day In Travian

Yesterday will no doubt go down in history as one of the most pivotal days in the history of Travian. It’s sure going to make 2010 a very interesting year.  Here are just some of the big news that was announced:

Probably the best news of the day is that Travian will merging with Kraft Foods Inc. With the additional financial resources of Kraft able to fund Travian’s setup, the amount of servers is going to quintuple! Read the official announcement here: http://forum.travian.us/showthread.php?t=73797.

Check out the sweet new company logo:

It wasn’t mentioned in the announcement whether or not this will lead to a Travian themed canned pasta, but I wouldn’t be surprised if that follows shortly. I’m just glad that my two favourite activities, playing Travian and eating Kraft Dinner, are now being combined! Truly, this is among the happiest days of my life.

This announcement was also made on the UK Forums and India Forums.

The Travian.com forums didn’t break this story today, but they had some big news of their own to report: that the next Server 7 will be the debut of Travian version 3.7, which will finally introduce troops with magical abilities to the game. It’s about damn time!

You can read the official announcement here: http://forum.travian.com/showthread.php?t=134987, but basically this will mean a 4th playable race known as the druids, who have a unique building known as the potion hut.

There was also some unfortunate news: after Server 7 starts, there won’t be any new servers starting on Travian.com. That’s okay though, I think the .US servers are staying open. Read the announcement here: http://forum.travian.com/showthread.php?t=135044

While it won’t have anywhere near as large an effect on the game as the above announcements, I also announced that I’m writing my first-ever book about Travian. Read the full story in my previous post. Be sure to pre-order it early so you can be the first person to receive one!

In Server 9 endgame news, there was a huge development that sent shock waves throughout the game and will no doubt have a huge effect on the outcome. Inocka, on of the leaders of the dominate northwest alliance, Thunder, as well as one of the 13 World Wonder holders, is going to be deleting her account. This will leave Thunder without a clear leader, as well as cost them what would have otherwise been one of their best chances of winning. Thunder will also be losing the Unique Rival’s Confusion Artifact, which Inocka currently holds. I’ll try to have more on this story as it develops. Read all about it in this thread (warning: this thread is NSFW, due to strong language and nudity): http://forum.travian.com/showthread.php?t=135053

Yes, it was definitely a tumultuous day to say the least! April 1st will be a day that Travian players will not soon forget!
