Really? The numbers I'm looking at would seem to indicate otherwise. As far as the game going "belly up" I think if you go back far enough you'll see that people have been predicting this since World 1 opened. Yet, strangely, more and more people are joining and we're up to 11 live game worlds.

I've edited the title of this thread for accuracy.

reasons why I am quitting SK.
I would like to point out that even Firefly calls this game SHK, it happened in the news. So SHK does appear to be the official acronym for Stronghold Kingdoms, not SK. :geek: 8-)

IMO, if you want to remain neutral in this game it comes with a price. You can't expect to hold a capital office position (Steward, Sheriff, etc...) and expect not to get caught up in the politics of the World you play in. As dominate Factions/Houses, began to expand and increase in strength that translates into gaining capital control, and neutral capitals can become affected! Neutral means neutral...control of nothing but the village(s) you own! Even obtaining a LL or Vassal that is tied to a Faction/House is not neutral because if war breaks out among established Factions/Houses...vassals can become targeted, as a strategy of war! Meaning targeting your enemies vassals is a good way to hamper his/her ability to attack!

I think the game is designed to encourage players not to be neutral but to join factions and ultimately houses because the game is designed on the premise of conflict! This is not "Farmville." At lower levels remaining neutral is easy but as individual players began to ascend in level it becomes harder and harder to remain neutral! The only solution is to join a faction with "like minded" members...as the game probably intended!

So how come Western Isles, Co. Durham, East Yorkshire and Devon have not been opened up? If the number of players on w3 have continually increased, then these counties should have been opened long ago.

However, the last counties before these to open up were open after like 2/3 weeks (Hard to remember that far back, if someone has accurate data to show when the last county opened up please say) after the world started. Now, it is like 35 weeks, and no change to the map.
