You can choose between three tribes in Travian, Romans, Gauls and Teutons. Each tribe has got its own advantages and disadvantages and their troop types are very different, too. So it is important to choose the tribe that fits to you perfect.
The Roman empire is the tribe in Travian which is most easily played by beginners. Because of its high level of social and technological development the Romans are masters at building and its coordination, and their troops are part of the elite in Travian.
They are very balanced and useful in attacks and also in defending. To guarantee this variety the Roman troops are trained very long and their training is expensive. Their infantry is a living legend, but their defense against enemy cavalry isn't as good as that of the other tribes.
For beginners and those players, who don't know exactly what they want to play, the Romans are the ideal choice.
