Let's forget about Travian. (Especially if you play from work.)
Travian favors those who can be online 24x7.
If you want to have a life, avoid it at all cost.


Thanks for the heads up as I avoid MMOs and anything else that sucks up your life... especially since I just got an invite by e-mail. Your timing couldn't have been better.


I work 10-12 hours a day, often 6 days a week. Allow me to state that I spent right around the same amount of time on Travian as I do on Weewars. Yes, it favors the little kiddies that are on 24/7 but any game with a constant gameworld does. However, as I stated I was not on that much and was able to enjoy the game and have fun.

Did I ever come home to find all of my hard work get destroyed by a group of kiddies while I was away? Sure. But it was fun nonetheless. The key is to be a socialable person and make friends in the game and then to allow them to "sit" your account. I had a friend in Aussyland who would watch my account, and vice versa.

Anyhow, its a fun game and more than worth checking out.

Oh and, like WeeWar, Travian is played through a browser without any annoying flash applications, etc. They also use like technologies. So in those ways, they are indeed similar.

But hey, those are just my thoughts.

Not much of an argument considering I don't play other "constant gameworld" games for that exact reason.

It's all fair and good that the designers went with that option, I just personally don't have enough time for anymore games like that, which means I cannot compete... and I still prefer winning to getting squashed... particularly by snot nosed little arrogant brats who only win because they have time on their hands.

In any case... if its similar to WeeWar toss it in here. Links and screenshots will certainly be useful. Personally I would suggest Advance Wars over everything else due to the heavy similiarities, but Wesnoth is also worth checking out.

these games are not out yet, but should be soon.


"Minions

A real time multi player RTS game where you control a single unit as part of a team to push back the enemy and destroy their base before they take down yours. You will have several units to select from when the game starts, each with their own unique abilities and upgrades which you can improve on as you play. This is by far our most ambitious multi player game to date!


Desktop Wars

Turning the table (or desk) around, Desktop Wars enables players to create their own creep armies and attack each others mazes. This will be a large scale persistent multi player game based on the famous DTD. Different ‘worlds’ will have different properties for all towers and creeps to keep you on your toes!"

Shouldn't that time be spent more effectively anyway, like getting a decent education by looking at Internet p0rn or something?

Anyone checked out TinyWarz? Looks like a futuristic version of Weewar.

(Thought I'd better post something productive for a change)

I can't believe no one mentioned this yet. Probably because it's a dinosaur in the comp. gaming industry. Panzer General and Allied General on the first Playstation Console is exactly like WW only with more realistic graphics and historic maps. Pretty comparable units even in attack and defense. Big diffs though are ambush capabilities for troops and you cannot repair a unit if there is an enemy unit on an adjacent hex.

A good option is Orion's Belt (http://www.orionsbelt.eu). It's like ogame/travian and weewar merged together.

I play a game application on the iPhone called uni-war. It is very similar and had three races but it's limited on what u can build with each race like 1 boat each

Minions is out for ages, I found Weewars through that game. Because of consant server lags, I jokingly suggested that they should turn Minions from RTS into a turn based game, and somebody dropped a link. Minions is a cool team based flash game, a match lasts 10-20 mins usually, best place to play it is: http://www.casualcollective.com/#games/Minions

I advise people against Travian, I have played it and although it was very fun at times, it took over my life. Ogame is similar space themed game, dont touch also.

Did somebody play Battle Isle series, I remember trying that game out at the friends house ages ago on Amiga 500, Weewar really reminds me of that game.

Bitter Glory is a complex strategy game set in WW II, it should be out in 2010, there are screenshots at:

State of War is turn based strategy (medieval theme, if it matters) with simultaneous orders instead of alternating turns as in Weewar. It's still in Beta, and currently kinda buggy.

This is a really good game that scratches a different itch than what Weewar does. The simultaneous turns and army logistics rules give a wholly different feel.

I'm Galois over there also, send me a message for a training game


ALSO: Travian and Weewar are extensively DIS-similar. Whether or not you like Travian (I hate with a seething passion, if it matters) it is rather silly to compare the two as similar in any meaningful way.

Ha ha! I can't believe someone mentioned Battle Isle. I poured weeks of my life into Battle Isle 2200 back in the 90s, but I never could beat it. You're right, it is eerily similar to WeeWar, but with 10x as many units (trains!), some higher concepts (refueling, ammunition) and slightly more detailed graphics. Highly recommended - you can play it just fine on DOSBox. Glory to the ROOM!

I gave it a try and I must say I really like it. It is both similar to Weewar and quite different - in different aspects of the game. It certainly goes a step further in emphasizing the economy and development. And it certainly gives a feeling of waging a war instead of fighting a battle.
If that sounds interesting enough - try it. (I am registered there under the same name. Will be happy to give an advice and play a friendly game.)

i don't actually play minions there at casual collective (casualcollective.com, aka cc), but i do infrequently play desktop tower defense there, and i radio dj there. that desktop tower defense game, about 3 or so months ago, birthed a sequel called desktop defender, but it is currently only playable on facebook. the devs there (called admins/mayors), have said that they will finetune it there on fb, then bring it to cc.

ostrica, look at the date that i posted that above, which you quoted. it says august 2008. minions was not out then. so don't bother incorrectly correcting someone.
