List of currently available medals

What are medals?

With the implementation of T3.1, Travian introduced player and alliance medals onto the servers. These are awarded each week to players who manage to appear and stay in the Top10 from Monday till Sunday.

The Top10s are reset weekly on Sunday midnight GMT.

How do I obtain one?

Currently there are 4 different categories of medal and some special medals:
* Highest climbers medals
* Best attackers medals
* Best defenders medals
* Best raiders medals
* Bonus medals
* Limited edition medals
* Medals for alliances

and not yet released:
* Best traders medals
* Medals for heroes

To earn a medal, you must be the best in one section that week.

Highest climbers

These medals are awarded for players who climb the most ranks in population. For the majority of the server, these are awarded to newly registered players who can jump from 21000 to 3000 in a matter of days, giving them a lead of 18000 climbed positions.
However once registration is closed for a server (during and after artefact release), the medals are easier to claim by existing players increasing ranks by conquers and smaller population gain. Often referred to as the 'simmer medal', it isn't held in very high regard.

Best attackers

These medals are awarded to players who have killed the most troops; it is calculated per crop consumption, not per unit total. So a player who kills 200 druidriders, will have a total of 400 kills, as the 200 druids ate a total of 400 crop.
The kills can be accumulated through raids, attacks, conquer attempts, oasis captures and even attacking yourself. Your hero does not need to be present for the kills to count. If you look below, there is a possible hero's medal to be introduced in a later version of Travian that will encourage players to use the accompanying unit more often and earn medals purely for doing so.

Best defenders

These medals are awarded to players who have killed the most enemy troops while defending their empire. It is calculated based on how many troops have died at your own villages and oases, not how many troops your own defence has killed elsewhere.
Kills are calculated the same way as the attackers medal; by crop consumption of the unit rather than unit number. Your hero does not need to be present for the kills to count. Troops which die at the hand of your wall or residence/palace are included. But troops caught in your traps are prisoners, not dead, and will not have any effect on the total.

Best raiders

These medals are awarded to players based on the cumulative resource total they are able to raid in 7 days. If the player is raided themselves and loses resources to another player, this is deducted from the cumulative total of resources gained.
Players who view Top10 can see a negative number next to their name if they have failed to earn back the resources stolen from them. This plays a large part in the alliance raiders medal; also calculated cumulatively between all members of that alliance, if a member is repeatedly farmed, it is deducted from the alliance total.

Bonus medals

These medals are awarded for combination bonuses, when a player manages to be a top attacker and defender in the same week. They are not awarded to a player who owns an attacker and defender medal from different weeks.
Please note that bonus medals are only given once.

Top10 both attackers and defenders of the week 1, 2 or 3 times throughout the server (consecutive):

Limited edition medals

These medals were issued to players who turned up to the Travian Meeting in Hammelburg, Germany. The meeting was arranged by the headquarter and publicized on the .COM and .DE forums as an open invite event.
The medals cannot be earned or awarded to anyone who did not attend this event.

Medals for alliances

Here are the images used for alliance medals, exactly the same as player medals but with the added olive branches. Olive crowns symbolize a token of victory and are most commonly seen used in the Olympics.
Only positions 1st - 10th are available to alliances, it is not possible for alliances to earn medals for being in the Top10 multiple times or achieving attack and defence in the same week.

How to put medals into your profile

If you are successful in winning a medal, you will not be notified by Travian in game. To find out if you have earned any, you must go to "»edit profile". Below, there will be a button called "medals" (marked with a red circle in the picture below). If you click on it, it will show you a table which lists the name of your medal, the position you came, the week it happened, and a code to write into your profile:

profile.png


Travian introduced "Quest 13: Dove of Peace" to help players understand where to find codes and how to make them appear, so from now on any new medals and codes will be displayed under [#0]. Each code is specific to you and your account; you cannot display a medal twice, and you cannot display another person's medal.
After putting the medals in your profile it could look like this:

If you go with the mouse over a medal in a player's profile it will show you a mouse over with the details about the medal:

MEDALS NOT YET RELEASED

Best trader

These medals are yet to be released in any available version of Travian, so we don't know how they are achieved yet. This set is aimed traders, possibly awarded for overall trades on the marketplace or cumulative profit per trade. For example, if you trade 500 wheat and receive 1000 iron, you are awarded 500 points.

Medals for heroes

These medals are yet to be released in any available version of Travian, so we don't know how they are achieved yet. This set is aimed at heroes, possibly awarded to the amount of hit points gained in a week through defence and attacking combined (similar to attacker/defender medals), or the amount of levels increased (similar to highest climber medals).
T3.1 saw the beginning of publicized hero ranks which can be accessed and viewed via the statistics tab in game.
