All winning WW accounts was Egyptians.
I have chosen to only show alliances Top20 because so many of Top20 players have bend the rules to get the awards and why glorify them?
This year we will be able to transfer remaining gold from Qualifications to Final. If you have saved your resting gold from last Final you shall be able to use it on this Final.
b) Unused Credits will not be paid out in cash. However, any Credits that have not been used by the end of the qualification round can be transferred to another respective game world with name “COM” under travian.com. Unused credits can be transferred from a qualification
server to the final server. Should a player abort his/her participation in the final, or when the final ends, unused Credits cannot be transferred to a national game server.
International ended 13 October
This is the server for those domains that wasn’t drawn to play in Group A-D (of course they still are free to play where they want). Uollas meta from Final played here minus Turks. Exodus from Romania. CUP that is a mixed meta. Mordor from Thailand, to mention some.
As expected the meta
in SouthWest won, G&V was the chosen alliance to take the
victory – and I was surprised that it wasn’t Natassa that built
the WW. NewOrder was second and NØA third. All 3 belonging to the
big Italian/Arab meta.
Exodus got a plan from Vietnam and bravely challenged the bigger meta but was quite outnumbered.
Vietnam that formed a bigger meta after artefacts didn’t succeeded to fulfill their intentions. It looks as they had internal problems as they ended up not being able to build after level 49.
Mordor got 2 planst from CUP after their WW was down and ended up as rank 4.
Time to confess that I played here, I started late – the night before they closed the servers. It wasn’t easy to catch up at first but I ended up with 12 villages and cp for 8 more. I need to be better building troops though. I’m a bit rusty after 4 years with only one village for observation.
It wasn’t easy to find an alliance. Most didn’t even answer my tries to contact.
Arabia ended 10 October
A server for players that speaks arabic.
This year two metas equally in size but the winners, Arab, has more experience from earlier Tournaments. TS have a bit to go before they can be a real opponent. Arab ended the server with chiefing all except one WW from TS.
After the new bot detection system was implemented last year the surviving accounts has dwindled in a high degree, from being the biggest server to be the smallest. A section af arab players took their bad habits to International – and got a lot of accounts deleted.
I had an account here too. I like this server – the players are always so polite. I was invited to an alliance but translater don’t work well with arabic so I had trouble to understand the MMs, most didn’t make any sense at all. I stopped on 12 villages here too and also qualified by def – not so hard – lol.
I had a quarrel with a neighbor, was lucky to be online most of the times he sent catas or raids and to snipe his catas was no problem. So more action here than on International.
One thing that fascinated me was that so many sent 21+1 as fakes and when I tried to talk about that they was convinced that it was minimum to send.
Group A ended 11 october
All invited domains played here. The Chinese seems to have dominated the server and won. Turks was second and Latinos third. Netherlands was represented by the alliance Kluns.
Turks was less than in past rounds, for example COF was missing, many can’t afford to pay for gold due to the bad exchange rate and it‘s not fun to play without when you are used to it.
This is the first time Turks haven’t won their own server.
Group B ended 11 October
I couldn’t find any trace of players from Anglospere. The closest to an alliance from Anglo is SH that played on International.
B have had a similar development. Old alliances as BAD and Cerber have chosen to not play. That made it possible for SMURFS to take the lead and win. Winter was second and Energo third.
Also the first time a non russian alliance won this server.
Group C ended 11 October
All invited played and also H.M.B. a mixed alliance that played in the RU meta in Final. I think I saw some Thai too.
It happen a lot here the last days, I will quote my source from the
winning alliance IA:
We were fourth, then we stole unique Architect of PL, cat PL WW.
Dacia cat our WW, we cat Dacia WW 😀
Then we stole one BP of CS, CS stole from Dacia, so they could build on and then we stole another one of CS, so they cant build anymore and stay on lvl 93.
Ah and one bp stolen from L after the robbery of the unique Architect, and yesterday we deffed with it our bp vs PL 😀
And now we are all happy and tired!
I think it was a while since a German alliance won on this
qualification so congrats 🙂
PL ended up as second and CS was number 3.
Group D ended 10 October
All invited played and also players from Italy. Nordic was represented by IWNL with many from Finland.
I told about schism in HUN in past Endgame post and it ended as foretold. The small independed Hungarian alliance GS won because the bigger HUN alliance refused to attack a country fellow even if they had parted.
HUN second and IT third.
What can we expect in Final? It’s not much talk about who will confed with who, leaders prefer to keep it a secret. The combination the new confed rules and that several alliances have decided to not play will make the startfield a little more unsure than we have been used to the latest years.
From Internatonal we can discern 4 groups:
Uollas/SPQR/G&V/NewOrder/Arabs, CUP plus Mordor?, Exodus,
Vietnam- if they solve their internal problems.
From Arabia we can’t expect many players and some had an account on International too. Not enough coordinated to form a meta on their own.
On Group A Turks has a similar problem. Leaders has left, players too. But maybe now when they are not so many the resting ones can easily make agreements – but honestly I doubt it.
Chinese played with Prime last year, Prime isn’t playing as far as I know. China is many enough to go for an own meta.
From Group B we have SMURFS that played with Dacia last year. I have seen “CS” alliances on at least 3 servers, if they will be able to cooperate I don’t know, probably they will team up with someone else. The Russians that still plays will not be as strong as previous Finals but still very competent to make havoc on other metas.
The only I’m sure of when it comes to Group C is that Dacia will work together with the other Romanian alliance, Exodus. HMB probably with Russians again. PL might go back and play with CUP. The others – we will see, Germans haven’t been able to cooperate as a meta for years.
Last is Group D and here we have the French that have the same problem as Germans. They can’t cooperate and many old players have quit. Latinos is many and also split on several servers, some played with CUP last round. HUN usually plays with Dacia in Finals.
I believe we still will have 4 bigger metas: Uollas, Dacia, Russia and CUP. I think China will be the 5th and maybe Vietnam as a 6th – that is 1500 players within the 3confed system. Probably as many will form a second confederation associated to the primary metas.
3000 players left including French, Germans, Turks, Latinos, Thai, Balkans, other Italians. They have all possibilities to form new metas. Will they do? Or will they be left without having influence on the game?
How will the alliances adept to the new system? Maybe they still are caught in the old way to play and will try to form big metas with thousands of players built of several 3confeds working together. Probably it will take a couple of Finals before they have found a new way to handle this. It will be harder to def while the size of hammers still will be the same. A more interesting endgame for sure. The server will not be decided when WWs are on level 20 as it have been in the past.
Final starts the 14 November and we will get answers how it will work out.
