Have any of you guys ever played Travian? What do you think about the game? I've been told it's pretty popular and quite interesting as well. Seems like it's pretty popular in Europe, but less so in Asia, or at least SouthEast Asia!
Am thinking about playing Travian...That day, I actually read a pretty cool review about a similar sort of game at Massively Joystiq and I decided to give it a whirl. I used to think stat-heavy games were all calculations and low on the fun factor, but Illyriad is on the slower side, and you don't need to constantly watch your back,so it's very relaxed, but in-depth as well. It's just my first week though, but at least I'm still okay with it.
Has anyone tried Travian as well, or maybe both, and how do they compare? Any pointers for games like this? Good or bad experiences you have with these games? Am thinking of joining Travian and see whether it interests me. First time trying these sort of games.
