Your capital is the most important village and the location has to be given some thoughts the moment you register your account. First and foremost, here are the requirements of a good capital :-
- A 15 cropper village. Always – there is no exception to this rule. A 6 cropper and 9 cropper is also known as a noob capital.
The difference in crop production between a 9 cropper and 15 cropper is HUGE. Furthermore, a 15 cropper does not need Iron Foundry, Saw Mill and Brickyard – freeing up 3 slots to build granaries and warehouses.
- High crop oases bonus. The highest is 150%, but they are rare. Go for 125% or 100% at least. If you still can’t get it, then settle on a 75% as a last resort.
A word to note. There is a LOT of difference in crop production between a 75% capital and a 100% capital and 125% capital. Once your croplands reach level 18, you would have wished you had a 150% instead of a 125%, so the importance of high crop bonus cannot be understated.
With all level 18 croplands and Grain Mill and Bakery, and gold Crop production boost :-
0% – generates 45,000
25% – generates 52,500
50% – generates 60,000
75% – generates 67,500
100% – generates 75,000
125% – generates 82,500
150% – generates 90,000
Once you have registered your account, go to the Travian crop finder tool and search for a 15 cropper near you with at least 100% crop bonus http://www.yourgamingsite.org/Aldeescereals.do
If you don’t land within 15 squares of a good cropper, delete your account and register again, until you land on one close by.
The timing of when you register on the server matters too. If you’re a late comer, registering after 3 months into the server life, then chances are all the good spots would have been taken.
Don’t register on a server if you’re late. Wait for the next server to open and register early.
