Honestly this is leaving a sour taste in my mouth. My husband has been playing Stronghold Kingdoms for 100 something days now and I was wondering what it was about, so I started to play too. My little sisters came to visit this month and well I told them they should try it out (they are teens and we are in a military instillation in the middle of no where, they like building games like sims). So we got some starter packs, the next day we were banned for "connectivity". I feel so awful for my husband since he was really into the game. The least they could have done was WARN us and if we did whatever we were doing again then BAN us.
I'm rating this 1 star for strategy- because my husband likes the game. I would want to give it 0 stars since the game is filled was trolls. You have to have cards that you BUY to be able to beat someone else that bought cards. If you dont want to get crushed early on or get into the fun part of the game you can buy cards to catch up.
0 stars for no understanding at all with customer support when I tried to explain - I mean we spent money, it was a mistake - atleast unban my husband I don't care about the other accounts, but no - sorry you broke the rule once so you are PERMANENTLY BANNED from ever playing our the game, is all I am getting told.
0 stars for graphics - 2d graphics I think look pretty much like the first Stronghold 11 years ago.
Here is the actual math: If you pay 8 dollars on crowns, that will keep your castle running without you for a month, and you can get two card packs. Now lets do the math: if you play this game for 6 months and you spend 8 dollars per month, you will have payed 48 dollars. If you pay 8 dollars per month, for a year, it will be 96 dollars.
That's just for a player who wants to do okay at the game. If you don't, most of your castles will have unrest and be captured by other players. I've just covered "premium tokens", bored yet? It gets better, if you want to get ahead of the lords around you, and you don't like waiting around, and you don't have skill, this is the game for you! You can buy bonuses that include free research points and an instant research. A.K.A "cards". The single thing that ruins the game. Basically you can spend 80 dollars worth of cards, and have the the same castle, rank and soldiers as the free player who has worked on the game for 8 months. Bottom line cards are broken here is a video to show you http://youtu.be/Pmnt8nJu1o0 you can search ALL over the SK forums and find videos like this. These are free troops that you can buy with REAL life money and put in your castle.Read more ›
There's a lot of reviews for this game that isn't true "enough" to be honest.
Free-to-play / Pay-to-win / Freemium:
There's two pay-walls you have to pass to get the most out of your account. This will totally cost you roughly 10$ (or your regional equivalent).
With this you'll get 2 free "premium" cards every day. Other then that, there is absolutely no need to buy anything ever again if you don't want to.
I have played this game for a very long time, and so far, if I check my account I have actually spent less then 10$ on this.
I have been Marshall (read: the leader) of my House (read: alliance) of factions for well over a year, I've been king in my country and I've only lost a few villages (either because I was offline, or I myself made a mistake that made me vulnerable).
I did all of this without paying, without being premium..
This game has the most fair free-to-play model of all these type of games.
It's facebook-esque style game, but if you loved Stronghold 1 / Crusader, you'll love this.
After playing for this long, yea.. sure.. I've grown tired of this game, but then again, so far I've clocked (guesstimate) 6400 hours into this game, and it didn't cost me more then 10$ out of my wallet.
I got hundreds of games on Steam I've played less then 2 hours, and paid more for, before I got bored of it.
