Lobby, account and avatar (2024)

Upcoming feature

The lobby and its features described in this article are not yet available. They are planned to be released near the end of June 2024. Please follow announcements on our blog to find out more.

Travian: Legends Blog

The lobby is the one place to access all your gameworlds, manage duals, and start playing on new gameworlds without the need to register by email each time. It is available on the game's main page, travian.com.

Lobby, account and avatar (1)

Every player has just one lobby account and may have one avatar in each game world.

Lobby account:
Account on the main page, travian.com. It contains all your avatars and allows inviting duals to play on your avatars.
Each dual has their own lobby account.
Avatar:
Your profile on the specific gameworld, with all its villages, troops, the hero and so on. In the past we used the term "account" for this. Everything you have in the specific gameworld is in your avatar.
Avatars can be set up as sitters to other avatars; this is managed inside the game, not in the lobby.
Sitters and Duals

Lobby account name

When you create your lobby account, you must choose a new name. Lobby account names consist of two parts: a username and a short tagline. Each part does not have to be unique on its own, but the combination must be unique.

This means that if you want to use a nickname you were known for, you can put it in the username, even if other players already used such a username in their lobby account. You must have different taglines in this case.

Example

Username: Attila
Tagline: Hun
Lobby account name: Attila#Hun

Nobody else could have the same lobby account name. But someone else could be Attila#King or Warrior#Hun.

Note: avatar names are separate from lobby account names. You can use different avatar names on each gameworld, and that’s what other players will see in the game.

Transition to the new system

If you created your avatar before the lobby was introduced, you need to create a lobby account to gain full benefits from it. All your avatars with the same email address as your lobby account will be automatically added to your new lobby account. However, you may still access your avatar the old way if you don't create a lobby account.

New avatars can only be created in the lobby.

Old avatars without lobby account

  • Can only be accessed using the avatar name or email and the avatar password directly on the gameworld’s page.
  • Cannot login in the mobile app.
  • Avatar password may be changed in the game.
  • There is no duals management. Duals must know the owner’s avatar password to access the game directly on the gameworld page.
  • Avatar email may be changed in the game.
  • Creating a lobby account automatically connects all old avatars using the same email with the lobby account.

Old avatars connected to the lobby

  • Can be accessed through the lobby.
  • Can be accessed in the mobile app (supported gameworlds only).
  • Can be accessed by using the avatar name or email and the avatar password directly on the gameworld’s page.
  • Duals management. Password should not be shared with duals. Instead, each player needs to have their own lobby account, and they can be added as duals to a specific avatar in the lobby of the avatar owner. Duals then log in to the avatar through their own lobby.
  • The email connected to the avatar may be changed in the game, disconnecting it from the lobby account. If there is another lobby account with the same email as the new email of the avatar, the avatar will be connected to it. If there is no lobby account with such an email, the avatar becomes an avatar without a lobby account. Duals that were set up before can still access such an avatar.

New avatars created in the lobby

  • Can be accessed through the lobby.
  • Can be accessed in the mobile app (supported gameworlds only).
  • Can be accessed using lobby account name and lobby password directly on the gameworld’s page.
  • There is no avatar password.
  • Duals management. Password should not be shared with duals. Instead, each player needs to have their own lobby account, and they can be added as duals to a specific avatar in the lobby of the avatar owner. Duals then login to the avatar through their own lobby.
  • It’s not possible to change the avatar's email or move it to a different lobby account.

FAQ

What’s the difference between an account and an avatar?

You have one global lobby account for all your gameworlds. In each game world you play, you have one avatar. You can access all your avatars and create new avatars from your lobby account, without having to go through email registration and activation each time.

How can I create a lobby account?

Open travian.com and register. Your old avatars will be automatically linked to your new lobby account.

Does my password to the lobby account have to be that complicated?

Technically you don’t have to have digits, signs, capital and small letters, simpler passwords are still accepted. But we strongly urge you to get a secure password. The longer it is and the more types of characters it uses, the more secure it is.

Why is my avatar not visible in my lobby account?

Only avatars using the same email as the one you used to register the lobby account are added to your lobby account. If your avatar was created before lobby was introduced, you can change its email in game and then it will be added to your lobby account.

How do I add duals to my avatar in the lobby?

Click the blue duals icon on the gameworld in the lobby to add duals. Each dual must have their own lobby account. You need to know their full lobby account name to add them. Then they need to accept the invitation in their lobby.

Can I just share my lobby password with my duals?

Sharing passwords is not secure, so we created a way to manage duals in the lobby. Using the lobby to manage duals is safer, as everyone has their own password. Also, if you shared your lobby account password, they would have access to all your avatars on all gameworlds. With the lobby system, you can decide which avatars you share with which duals.

Sharing the lobby account password is a violation of the game rules, even if it’s about duals. However, you may still share your avatar password with your duals, for old avatars that have avatar passwords.

I don’t remember if my avatar was created in the lobby or earlier; how can I check?

Login to your avatar, open preferences > account tab. If there is an email change option, the avatar was created before the lobby was available.

I changed my avatar’s email, and it’s gone from my lobby. Where can I find it?

Old avatars must have the same email address as the lobby account. If you change the email of the old avatar, it is removed from the lobby account. If there is a lobby account with the same email as the new email of the avatar, the avatar will be added there. Otherwise, it will become an avatar not connected to the lobby account.

You can change the avatar’s email back to your lobby account email to have it added back.

Note that all of this is only possible for old avatars. New avatars created in the lobby are always connected to the lobby account; their email cannot be changed.

Someone added me as dual, but I don’t know them. What should I do?

When someone adds you as a dual, you receive an invitation. Simply decline it if you don’t want to play as that avatar's dual.

Can I play on multiple avatars in the same game world?

No, you can only play on the gameworld on one avatar – your own or as a dual. However, you can access up to two avatars as a sitter from the avatar you play on.

How do I switch from playing on my own avatar to playing on another avatar as dual?

First, delete your avatar. After the deletion is finished, you may accept an invitation to play as dual on another avatar.

Can I give away my avatar to someone else?

Old avatars connected to lobby: you can give them away by changing their email address to the email of the new owner.

New avatars created in the lobby: it’s not possible to transfer them to another lobby account.

How can I change my lobby account email?

Unfortunately, changing the email of your lobby account is not currently possible. However, we plan to implement this feature in the future.

Can I give away my lobby account?

Since it is currently not possible to change the lobby account’s email address, it’s not possible to give the lobby account to another person.

How does Gold transfer work in the lobby?

Currently, the lobby does not manage Gold transfer. When your Gold needs to be transferred, you will receive an email with the Gold Transfer Link, like in the past. This may change in the future.

Are my permanent medals connected to my lobby account?

Your medals are connected to your avatars and email addresses. The lobby does not currently manage the medals.

Can I use Facebook / Google / Apple / another authentication service to log in?

No, the lobby currently does not support the use of third-party authentication services. This may change in the future.

My avatar spawned in a wrong spot, what can I do?

You can use the new abandon avatar feature. It lets you quickly restart the game in a new position. It’s only available at the beginning of the game.

Abandon avatar, relocate, restart game
