Important message to the community!
some of you probably ask themselves why you haven't heard too much from us over the last couple of weeks and why there haven't been any big updates recently.
Now, in the last weeks, we have intensively focused on how to improve Remanum more and more.
During the planning process of the planned features for Remanum 2.0, we did however meet very serious problems. It has turned out that the implementation of new and urgently required improvements would only be possible at the expense of other things, or that things wouldn't be possible to be implemented at all.
We then had another couple of crisis meetings to think about and look for possible solutions to these severe issues.
Unfortunately, today, we have to tell you that we have not been able to find workable solutions.
Remanum is a very complex game. The underlying system is simply not flexible enough, so that it is impossible to give Remanum a revamp within an acceptable timeframe. Remanum was never meant to be an easily-changed game.
The implementation of new features, as well as the solving of existing problems takes us ever longer, leading to longer waiting times for you, our players. This means a lot of frustration on both sides, as you don't see much progress and we are unable to implement the things we have in mind.
Following a long discussion, we have now reached the decision to not develop Remanum any further.
The whole Remanum Team, as well as Travian Games, are very sad and sorry about this step and it has by no means been an easily-made decision.
Today, we will cease the development of new features and stop solving existing problems. Remanum will now run out.
On September 1st 2013, we will switch off the servers RU2, RU3, ES1, FR1, TR1 and EU1 and cease the game and support on them. The option to buy gold coins for these servers will already be removed on August, 19th 2013.
The only recently started server DE6, will be the only gameworld that will run until it ends.
The Team will continue to maintain DE6 until the end and our support will also still be available in German and English language.
From today July, 15th 2013, all players of the servers RU2, RU3, ES1, FR1, TR1 and EU1 have the option to move over to DE6.
On DE6, we will make all current game languages available and we will transfer your purchased gold to that server.
All players who wish to move over to DE6 should please create an account on that server and then contact our support from the server they have played on until then.
We will then manually transfer your gold over to the new account and delete your old account on the old server. In order to avoid mistakes please include in your support ticket your account name as well as your avatar name on DE6.
We from the Remanum Team would like to once again thank all of you for your amazing support over the last months. Your feedback, both positive and negative, as well as your enthusiasm for the game have been what's been driving this us forward! We have put all our hearts and efforts into the game in order to improve it in the last few months; unfortunately we have not succeeded in light of the sheer complexity of Remanum. We are deeply sorry for this. I think I can say that for all of us, Remanum has never been only a game. It was our "baby", which we tried to nurture and help it grow.
All of you, who will be taking part in this year's Travian Meeting from August 2nd until August 4th, will have the opportunity to speak directly with our Game Director Comeonbaer and ask him any questions you may have.
Otherwise, you are of course welcome to contact us at any time with your thoughts, problems and wishes.
It has been a pleasure to work with you all and I wish you all the best for the future. Who knows, our paths might cross again at another time and place.
Comeonbaer, Chrisvc &
Your Remanum Team
