    Default Things To Do While Waiting For Construction

    Later in the round there are plenty of constructions orders that will take long, especially for regular servers. These are some things you can do in the meantime.....

    1. Scout some players that you have got your eye on.

    2. If you have not noticed, there is a Travian chat, go on that and waste time being a jabber jaw.

    3. Go onto an alliance forum or Travian forums.

    4. Go watch some T.V., if you are one of those people who need to get to the comp. as soon as a building is finished, then I would suggest to not use this.

    5. Lick peanut butter from a hobo's foot, only do this if all else fails. (TASTES REAL BAD!)

    6. GO DO SOMETHING NON ELECTRONIC RELATED!!!!!!!

    7. Go give someone a swirly.

    8. Go give someone a swirly.

    9. Do 6/7/8 at the same time.

    10. Ignore number 6 and throw a hairdryer in the toilet while giving the swirly, this should make things SHOCKING!!!!

    Your cat plays fetch? Wow. Thats amazing. Usually I am not able to do much with school and such so I actually have something to do.
    There are 10 types of people who understand binary, those who do and those who don't. If you understand this, add it to your signature.

    You can't teach an old dog new tricks, but you can't teach (most) cats anything.

    Me being a math nerd...

    1. Calculate all build times for the next five levels and what you will be able to do between them based on your efficeincy.
    2. Calculate exactly when you will reach enough resources to complete the next five levels(not needed if you have plus, or you can skip that step.)
    3.Try to figure out exactly how many catapults you will need to destroy your neighbour, and then multiply that by ten to infuriate them more.
    4. Figure out who you will be on your next server, then create a three-day list with resources and building times of how your going to do everything.
    5. Drink lots and lots of coffee.
    6. Go to your calculator to create a graph of all people in your 7x7 so you know who is weakest, strongest, and who to attack first/last.
    7. Estimate your 7x7 people's production times and when they will hit the maximum amount before they spend it/ max out (may differ. Suggest using max button on calculator, next using extremes and derivatives. Much easier.)
    8. Get angered at how your enemy seems to hit you at the EXACT right time to steal all your resources and discover their activity pattern so you can change yours exponentially as to just avoid him.
    9. Look at all oases in your surroundings and use comabt-simulator to figure out how many clubbies you need to destroy the animals-(math is coming)-then subtract this from your total clubbies, take the absolute value, and figure out how many resources will be needed so you can dominate.
    10. Stare back at this list and wonder how you could've forgot to mention trig in this mess.

    I wonder if it's part Siamese? In my experience those are the ones who will fetch. I had one who would go fetch a cloth-covered jingle ball and bring it back to me.

    He would also get bored when my boyfriend and I were zoned out on our computers, and he'd go out into the living room and meow loudly. When one of us went out there to see what was up, he'd attack us.

    I tend to play Travian in between random housework and taking care of my two-footed and four-footed kids. If I NEED to build, upgrade, or raid immediately after something finishes, I just set the timer on the microwave.

    Build something in another city.

    I always...

    Do homework
    Play basketball
    Play PS2

    Play on another server.

    Usually if the plans take more that 5 hours, I do it overnight, when I go to school or go to work.

    In writing about what you are doing while waiting on Travian, you failed to mention writing about what you are doing while waiting on Travian.

    Oh, ok. That's great. I already had another on a different server anyway. Thanx for clarifying, i kinda thought you could or I wouldn't have done it, but I wasn't sure.

    Sarcasm noted, it's still disgusting. And that's coming from a 4channer.

I am quitting smoking right now and since I don't work I have to stop getting high So I just troll the forums now and bug other players on here while I wait.
