Here we go again folks yet another TL invite giveaway! Just like the previous giveaway, this too is based on you signing up for a free Travian Games account. There is no need to provide any ratio proofs, Speedtest results or anything else other than registering and verifying your account on Traviangames using the given registration link. For detailed instructions on how to join the invites channel and what to do once your are in the channel, read on.

How to get into #invites IRC Channel

  1. Download and install mIRC from here.
  2. Restart your web browser if it was open during mIRC installation.
  3. Click on irc:// to join the channel.
  4. If mIRC presents you with a ‘Link Request’ window, choose ‘Change to the new server and join the channel’ option or ‘open a new connection’ option. Press ok.
If you are not using mIRC, just join #invites channel on server from whatever IRC client you are using. If you don’t have an IRC client installed on your system, you can use the web based IM service Mibbit which supports IRC protocol.

What to do once on the invites IRC Channel?

It’s pretty much explained in detail on the channel topic. But since some people were having problems in the last giveaway, here is a brief tutorial. However it is strongly recommended that you read the current channel topic for the most current information.

  1. Go to
  2. Register for a Travian account using a valid email address. Verify your registration by clicking the link on confirmation email.
  3. Back on the #invites IRC channel, send a private message (PM) to username mentioned in channel topic with your Travian username and the E-mail address you used in step 2 above. Sending a PM using mIRC can be done by double clicking on the user’s name from the list on the right panel.

While trying to connect to the IRC channel, you may run into error messages or other issues. Read the possible solutions mentioned below to get around them.

If you get Server ERROR: :Closing Link: [IP] Z:Lined (You look like a bot. Be sure to fill in your nick/ident/realname properly.) while trying to connect using mIRC:

  1. Fill in you mIRC Full name, Email Address, Nickname, and Alternative Nickname using believable values - do not use nicks such as Guest23781. (To change these values go to mIRC Tool Menu->Options and Choose ‘Connect’ from right panel).
  2. Save the values and reboot your computer. Try reconnecting the channel now.

If you get the message #invites unable to join channel (invite only)

It seems that TL staff closes the #invites channel temporarily till the current invites request queue is cleared. Once users obtain invite and leave the channel, it re-opens. Keep trying in regular intervals – if the giveaway has not concluded (it’ll be on till 20:00GMT, 27/1/2009), you’ll eventually be able to get in.

  5. baz // 1/27/2009 09:44:00 PM  

    I'm trying using mibbit and getting the

    Closing Link: [IP] Z:Lined (You look like a bot. Be sure to fill in your nick/ident/realname properly.).

    error. Not sure what to do as mIRC is refusing to connect to the channel (invite only).

  6. Lightning_Struck_Tower // 1/27/2009 10:05:00 PM  

    Did you try the solutions mentioned in this article?

  7. baz // 1/27/2009 10:07:00 PM  

    Yep, Tried rebooting. but mibbit only make allowances for a nick, not full name or e-mail

  8. doomwithdon // 1/27/2009 10:07:00 PM  

    #invites unable to join channel (invite only)

    thats the message im getting

  9. Anonymous // 1/27/2009 10:08:00 PM  

    Is this giveaway over? I can't seem to join the IRC channel as it tells me that I need an invite in order to enter the channel.

  10. Lightning_Struck_Tower // 1/27/2009 10:17:00 PM  


    Giveaway is not over. It actually got extended by few hours till 20:00GMT.

    [Cirno] The invite channel is temp closed till the que is cleared, it opens once in a while to allow new users in. Please stand by and retry every 5min.

    Did you try with mIRC? It's only a few MB download (less than 10mb if i remember correctly).
    Install mIRC, insert nick and other details as instructed in this article, reboot and try.

    Good luck

  11. Cleiton // 1/27/2009 10:38:00 PM  

    This channel is invite-only. You must have an invite from an existing member of the channel to join. Use "/knock #invites" to ask the channel operators to invite you in. [Knock]


  12. baz // 1/27/2009 10:40:00 PM  


    I did try with mIRC, but now I know the deal with the "invite only" problem, I'll hang in there. Thanks.

  13. Lightning_Struck_Tower // 1/27/2009 10:49:00 PM  

    There is no need to use any additional commands. But you have to wait till current invite request queue is cleared. Once it's cleared the channel opens up. Keep trying.

  14. Cleiton // 1/27/2009 11:21:00 PM  

    I'm not getting an invitation someone can help me ... talk to me send a message to one of such Laufer most do not have it in the list ...

  15. Anon // 1/27/2009 11:22:00 PM  

    A bit after Cirno's message moose86 said this in red

    "Guys invite giveaway is over it may or may not reopen but we DO NOT KNOW you have to wait and idle and NOT ask about them"

    That might have been 20 minutes ago?

  16. tejaslok // 1/27/2009 11:27:00 PM  

    Missed it this time to "it has bcom invite only channel anyways thank you for "LS TOwer" for informing & to all....

    God, missed it AGAIN!

  20. TEAM FILEnetworks // 1/27/2009 11:40:00 PM  

    Yes they giveaway has now concluded (around 2 hours before 20:00GMT which was the earlier mentioned time). Congrats to those who got in and for those who couldn't, better luck next time.

  21. Anonymous // 1/28/2009 12:01:00 AM

  26. baz // 1/28/2009 01:18:00 AM  

    sam, that's what I constantly got until the deadline arrived. So I guess I can't say one way or the other whether it's still on.

  27. D // 1/28/2009 01:24:00 AM  

    If you go into the help channel they are clearly saying it is over and kicking anyone that asks for an invite or complains that it ended early.

  28. baz // 1/28/2009 01:26:00 AM  

    sorry, comment was directed at hawkeye

    I'm having the same issue. (Closing Link: [IP] Z:Lined (You look like a bot. Be sure to fill in your nick/ident/realname properly.) I've done everything stated in the post above, and more. I've tried on multiple computers and different IP's.
