    Default Is Travian Sexist & Racist?

    S7 2009/2010 showed that Travian was sexist when Regulator had to jump through hoops because as a winner she was female, yet the winners message declared "her" to be a "he".

    The advent of new T4 allows us to dress up our male only heros.

    But, it gets better, we are only allowed to dress up our white male heros.....

    Can anyone from Travian explain this in the "global" game they sell?

    Female heroes are currently on a to-do list, there's no sexism to this, just the fact that the male heroes were done first and in time for the launch and the female heroes aren't ready yet.

    I'd say at least 40% of top leaders of alliances within travian are women, especially on the more popular servers. Also a number of our top staff members including Tschena are women so I really don't think that Travian is a sexist organisation.

    I dont believe travian is that sexist, most of the better players and alliance leaders are women. I've made many mistakens in calling someone a he when they were a her in the past

    Are you joking? Travian is, erm, about warriors in the middle-ages Europe. Think about it.
    Have you heard aything about non-white people there? (I said, in middle-ages)
    And what's about female warriors?

    On a TO-DO list?! So your saying women always have to come AFTER men... They probably didnt feel the need to even try to get the female heroes ready for the launch.

    They say women heroes (not womens) will come (not have to) after men in Travian4 (not always).
    Are you working as journalist or at least jammer for army?

    the heroes are just historically correct, but women heroes need to be implemented for our occasional joan of arc

    "Once we release Travian 4.0, players will only have one base type profile a muscular male. We are planning to create more base type profiles later"

    Ah yeah, Travian is very sexist. That's why I have all these boys in my crew: the be my sex slaves

    Oh wait we can go a step deeper: there exist no troop pictures until now in T4 - so this is a bit advantage to the buildings which already have pictures!

    Did you ever thought about that it may be possible that the pictures are simply not ready?

    There was mentioned more than one time that the female hero is planned....
