Final Standings

 

Notes

 – Start Date: Nov 28th, 2008 / End Date: Dec 7th, 2009 / Duration: 374 Days

– This was the last ever server to be played on Travian.com using version 3.1. This makes it the last regular server to that didn’t have artifacts or any of the other new features introduced in Travian 3.5.

– The winning Meta-Alliance, LMFAOD united very close to end of the game, after the endgame had already been underway for weeks and World Wonders were already past level 90. LMFAOD stands for LoD, Myth, Fun, and One, Dino. (You can also make some humourous and crude expressions out of the letters, that’s intentional. These alliances definitely had a sense of humour.)

– Before merging to become LMFAOD, LoD was the dominate alliance in the Northeast, and Myth, Fun and Dino were united in ruling the Northwest in a Meta-alliance called MFD.

– ONE was a small alliance with highly skilled players that was located in the Southeast. Previously they were a major Meta-alliance, but they lost the battle to control their part of the South. But those who stayed loyal and didn’t give up still managed to capture a World Wonder and be a part of the winning team.

– The main opposition to LoD and MFD was the Space Lizards and Oz, two Meta-alliances that were closely associated. The main power behind Space Lizards was the alliance CWL, which had a ton of endgame armies and used them very effectively. CWL were the winners on Server 5 07-08.

-While the final World Wonder standings look one-sided, that’s because there was a period where it was clear that Space Lizards had expended the last of their armies while LMFAOD had ones to spare. During this time, they attacked what remained of the defenses at the Space Lizards Wonders and conquered several of them. For most of the game the race was close and it was a very tough battle for LMFAOD to win.

– It’s been said by many players (and I tend to agree) that if LoD, MFD, and One hadn’t merged together, then the most likely scenario would have been CWL having too many armies to be overcome and someone from their side would have probably won. 

– CWL were military experts but their shortcomings in diplomacy may have been their undoing. LoD and MYTH were very much opposed to one another for a long portion of the game. A big reason for them uniting as one alliance was because neither side wanted CWL to win the game.

– The World Wonder held by Codename from MYTH was key to LMFAOD’s eventual success. The armies attacking it were stymied by its impressive defense, and despite CWL’s best efforts, the damage they were able to do to it never took it out of the game. See this post for more details.
