    Default The Corner

    Welcome all to Final 2016 and my Corner - and the first news! I havenít been able to check maps so early for three years now and I hope you will think itís so exciting as I do.


    First, before I forget it again, the market. It is possible to offer resources up to 1:2 but as long you are in protection you can only buy 1:1. All is in protection for near 2 days more so why do players persist to offer more then 1:1 when no one can buy?

    The eagerness amongst players to start this Final have been huge. The division in six qualification servers with countries dedicated to each have formed new constellations. This can be an exciting server.

    NE was very popular as start quad, too popular, I guess I will see many settlers at a high speed running past my little village at the border between NE and NW, much more free area in NW that is the smallest quad.

    It is a bit early, after 1Ĺ day GT is far behind the reality in alliances forming up, but some as the Turks are eager to win that race Ė in opposite to Russians that never have been in a hurry to form their allys.

    Never the less I have begin with maps and instead of waiting until main embassys are ready before I post I will update maps continually so we can see how the metas will form and in which direction they will move.

    Normally in Final I have to check 200-300 allys to get all wings together. This maps is based on top60 and I will add more until the big part of the players are counted for. Iíll add the gt links so you can see the progress, I donít have time tomorrow before work to update.

    First a reminder about how many that qualified.

    Turkey 2481
    International 2316
    Germany 2131
    Russia 2104
    France 2086
    Arabia 2020

    In total 13138 and we have now 10425 players including wildcards that we donít know the amount of.

    Since Turks so eagerly have built embassys I begin with them. A majority have spawned in SE but Error started late in NE. And yes, the circles is probably caused by the massive spawn in NE that resulted in many breaks when players tried to start.




    http://www.gettertools.com/finals.tr...-Map/250957197


    Turks has company in SE by Vietnam, Indonesia and Germany.




    http://www.gettertools.com/finals.tr...-Map/183654546


    Arabs chose to settle in NE when all expected them to go to SE or SW. Arabs have been spreading a lot of desinformation before the serrver and tonight one of them told me they will move from NE because itís too many players there. Believe it or not, Iíve heard the same rumor about other countries. The following days will show who will move where.

    The late starting Arabs will be mixed up with the late starting Turks. Looks as they chosen the same strategy ^^




    http://www.gettertools.com/finals.tr...-Map/276773520



    Dacia also wanted to be in NE.




    http://www.gettertools.com/finals.tr...-Map/145907901


    To find Czech together with Dacia isnít surprising but I heard long before start that they didnít want to cooperate with them again. France had plans together with China and maybe Cz?. Company might be a bit lost.




    http://www.gettertools.com/finals.tr...-Map/257757991

    In SW I found some small Russians allys. As I said before they are a bit lazy forming alliances. They are there together with Greeks and Swedes. Poland is back, they didnít play last Final, divided on two quads. I couldnít identify the ally Gravity too mixed.



    http://www.gettertools.com/finals.tr...G-Map/16476219

    And so NW Ė Enigma and Pan (CIN/Lords) from International. Spain/Portugal/Brasila/NL divided on 3 quads and are to cooperate with Arb due to ally profile. PP, an ally from Balkan somewhere. 777, the Ukrainian ally, have also spawned here but when they discovered they was to fight against Russians instead of Arabs they changed their mind. Will they chose to move to another battlefield or will they sim far away the rest of the server?

    Default Second village

    The first second was settled exactly 48 hours after start. I asked the account for a comment about that and the server start.

    Hello Safiren. There's been some major surprises this Finals. After Russians made public on their forum the starting quad Arabs panicked and they joined NE and SE, but mainly NE. Dacia also has a new strategy and we have many accounts in NE so I guess we'll have to fight hard for each spot of the map. The game has become more interesting this way and we will have guerilla war on a daily basis in Tournament Finals 2016.

    I decided to go for a c15+100 despite being the first to settle on the server because the alliance plans and the team is more important than my personal wish list.


    Good luck to all competitors and enemies out there ! You make this game great, so thank you !

    Maps are now based on Top140 allys/wings. most croppers are gone and that will show tomorrow and as usual I do my maps some hours before they will be updated. No use with pictures, they will be old before you see them. Sweet dreams!

    Turkey: Main quad SE, a late settling in NW. The list on associates is long on profiles. One of them is ND A. Seems a bit unnecessary on this stage to have naps between two big metas.

    Arabia: Some late starting Arabs have shown up in SE.

    Dacia: More embassys have been started and Dacia is both in NE and NW. They seems determinate to stay.


    http://www.gettertools.com/finals.tr...-Map/151764086


    Next meta in NE is multinational. French, Czech, Danish and several others.

    http://www.gettertools.com/finals.tr...G-Map/97762783


    Russians in SW thinks they will be bored, to few enemies. The Russians in NW and NE don’t risk to feel alone. This year the Grey Zone might be the scene of intensive battles, it haven’t been since WWs was moved out.

    http://www.gettertools.com/finals.tr...-Map/280920260

    I haven’t finish sorting out all allys yet so I put the rest of them on NW map.

    I’ve been told that ERROR is an independent Turkish meta, but still Turks so no change on that map.

    PT tells me they play with Dacia, but they are not on Dacia profile. I found two Brazilian allys that have contacts with Portuguese that plays with Arabs. New map for Arab associated: http://www.gettertools.com/finals.tr...G-Map/65744502

    Time for Dacia map, based on the same Top 200 and Dacia profile. There are many nationalities here, I can count to at least 10. With so many players I need to do two maps but how to divide them gave me a small headache. In the end I decided to make one map with all allys that have Dacia in ally name and the second with all the others.

    Dacia map contains players from Romania, Hungary, Italy and Portugal. Dacia NE have begin to build a stronghold in the North and also towards the Grey Zone. Dacia NW is clustering towards the Russia area around the Grey Zone.



    http://www.gettertools.com/finals.tr...-Map/231204988

    Associates map contains players from Romania, Slovakia, Italy, Germany, Portugal, Poland, Ukraine and US. The area around Grey Zone is highly attractive. Ukraine's have moved north.

    Default The humble hero

    This story is so cute so I have to borrow it. I havenít asked for permission so names are changed to something neutral.

    Writer1: The humble hero ,the story continues. He got a bucket, filled with water, should he a]feed the horse,b]put it on his head as a helmet or c] use it by the handle as a weapon.as still he marches on with no weapons or armor.
    Oh! another adventure is given to our hero,hiho off I go.
    -Iím noticing a lot of drunks on the highway, all with strange english accents, they must be yanks.
    Another load of resources have been found, still no weapons or armor,and the humble hero still has no money [dosh] to pay for these extras

    My humble hero has been given another adventure will he be able to cloth and amor himself, or is he destined to wear a loincloth for the rest of his days?
    Writer2: I'm afraid he'll wear that loincloth till eternity.
    Writer1: He saved up his meager earnings, to buy himself a pennant, allowing him to attend wrestling matches in other alliance members houses.
    Writer2: After that, he remembered that the second most important thing in life was to be among friends. What's the most important you ask? "Having all those friends be in loincloths as well", rudolph answered.
    Writer1: Earlier on in his village, he help the leader ďbuild that WallĒ to stop the BAD russians getting inland stealing his meager possessions.
    Writer2: After he did his adventure he went on to clear some fields from those pesky mexica... I mean rats and spiders :P
    Writer1: But with only his bare hands as weapons he has been having difficulty strangling the crocodiles ,wolfs and wild boar populating his area.
    Writer2: Earlier on their scouts had spot several gallons of vodka in their towns. A plan to be eternally drunk was born. And so the humble hero took of to steal a few gallons of vodka from the BAD russians. He was never to be seen again.

    Writer2: Clay. Lumber. Iron. Wheat. My Grandmother used to tell me stories about the old days, a time of drunkeness when the humble hero kept balance between the 'Muricans, the Arabs, the Russians, and the Indians. But that all changed when Vodka attacked. Only he humble hero was able to drink it all. Only he could stop the soberness. But when the travian world needed him most, he dissappeared. A 15 hours have passed, and the travian team has rolled back the server. 5 hours ago, my troops have left to safe Dacia's men, leaving me alone to defend our villages. Some people believe that he humble hero was never reborn into the Natars, and the cycle is broken. But i haven't lost hope. I still believe, that somehow, he humble hero will return to save the server.

    Writer1: So it was said, so it was written, however the humble hero has risen again. He has found some strange ointment to rejuvenate him, however Armour,swords,helmets have all eluded him. I wonder if I took a gulp of this amber nectar the gods gave me would I dream of a better life!!!

    The humble hero recently was sent on another adventure, you guess it ,he won no armor, helmet or sword, instead 60 imps rallied to his cause, and accompanied him back to his village. They said it for yr protections you will see a lot of yanks sprawled along the road, blind drunk on tequila and corona.

    The humble hero is being recalled from a friendly neighbourís hovels the wrestling match with the BAD enemy has been cancelled. He has been tasked to go on another adventure into the unknown,armed with his witsí,horse, rusty bucket, some ointments> is it a dream to hope for armory helmet and a sharp sword?

    Ok,i know its probably very hot hereabout honestly do I, the humble hero really need some more lotion to keep his body health. Give me a sword a helmet or a piece of armor!
    The humble hero went to the nearest auction house, to sell his lotion, he doesnít want his team mates to think he is a dandy. Hope everyone gives generously!

    Since my previous maps Iíve been introduced to the deep mysteries how to use certain formulas in a Google spreadsheet Ė Thank you very much my dear! (kisses) Now I have to redo all my statistics..


    NE-meta

    Based as before on Top200 and profiles.

    The fourth meta in North East calls themselves just that Ė the NE meta. Here we have France with 163 players. Lol-Fr is missing on the profiles but - well.. they have never been easy to cooperate with... A new constellation of Scandinavians and Greeks is also to be found here, 147 players. China is the biggest ally in the confederation with 307 players.

    Czech, 207 players, have this time chosen to not play with their old partners Dacia. Dacia is good players, they have showed that in many rounds and they won last Final but maybe their pride to be among the best ones also leads them to treat their supposed partners as only useful instead of real partners and thereby they might lose more friends. Not the wisest way if you want a victory again.

    KAK, Thailand, with 48 members brings the amount of players in the NE meta up to 872 players. By Final standards a small meta. I think they are too spread and have too many opponents to have any bigger influence in endgame. Nevertheless China gives it a try and is concentrating to WW 100/100.



    http://www.gettertools.com/finals.tr...-Map/281304674


    Russia

    Russians Ė as always Ė took its time to figure out. To start with the Russians in NE Iíve been told that it is the ones that donít think it is the happiest possibility to be a part in a big meta. We will see, the loyalty among Russian players have always been strong, they works together for the bigger goal. 252 Russians in NE quad.

    Russians have got new friends and old that are back. Nordwind was supposed to work with Arabs but it donít look as that. Also a surprising turn since I canít remember if I ever seen them work with Russian before. In that case we have 1114 Russian players in SW.

    We also have Russians in NW, the creme de la crŤme, eager to fight, 166 players. As it looks Russians have chosen to make the Grey Zone to the primary battlefield with that concentration around it.




    http://www.gettertools.com/finals.tr...-Map/211856059


    Associated
    Greeks with 155 players and Sweden with 39 have settled far away in opposite to Thailand, 140 players, that have stayed near center.



    http://www.gettertools.com/finals.tr...G-Map/21355391

    That makes a total of 1614 players in the Russian meta plus eventually 252 from NE.

    Remember that I havenít counted all smaller wings yet.

    Russians needs some enemies in their quad to not have a too borrowing round and this might be the ones. Poland and a couple of mixed allys will be targets. 192 players is not much to share.

    Default The Humble Hero tales

    The humble hero was sent a couple of hours ago to collect armor, helmets and rust swords in another adventure. Riding hard to reach the location, he dismounted and tripped over a bag lying abandoned on the road.
    -Wow what’s this? he cried, OMG its silver! His mind dreamed of beautiful wenches in the tavern, a jar of ale in his hand, and that shiny new sword made of steel. What? Oh misers’ got only 375 silver, enough to buy a tablet or 2 in the auction.

    Unbelievably a messenger arrived from a far flung corner of the empire, clutching a small parchment in his grubby hand. I quote: ’Oh humble Hero your fame has spread far and wide, your reputation is matched by no man, kindly win back our double crop land, from the Bad Russians. Unfortunately we have no troops to offer you, but if you chose to except this mission, we the down trodden will be in your debt”. So first sent out a scout to check the land, then my house needs to reach lvl 10, and I can hopefully challenge the usurper to a fist fight, for that green and pleasant land he is occupying. The humble hero having scouted the double wheat field and has set out with a motley crew of imps, to see what is there.



    The humble hero is musing on the workings of the auction house. Scrolls 6 silver, eventually went for 1000, he wonder if the parchment has gold flakes on it! 2000 for an artwork, that Thomas in the smithy churns out on a daily basis, but he won’t give him one, says he got to pay the market price. The lotion goes for more than 2500. The hero thinks and wonders if his 30 lotions will fetch that magnificent price? A walking stick for a druid, cost how much 1000+, he don’t need it, he is on a horse. Wonder what the world is coming to.
