Post New Tournament Now Live
New Tournament

Following the peaceful “Frenzied Foraging” Tourney, it’s time to draw your bows and set the traps, Sire! The first Tourney of 2019 will test your abilities as a castle constructor and defensive strategist:

Tourney Details
Name: Come Get Some!
Objective: Kill the most troops while defending your castles before the Tourney ends
Start: January 22 @ 10 am UTC
End: January 29 @ 10 am UTC
Min Prize Requirement: 500 troops killed

Please Note: Your ‘Come Get Some!’ Tourney score is determined by the number of troops killed in attacks against your personal castles. This includes both AI and player troops attacking your castles. Attacks against capital castles under your control do not count towards your score.

What is a Tourney?
Spoiler! :
Tourneys are limited-time contests in which players across all game worlds (not including special worlds such as Rise of the Wolf) compete in various in-game PvE activities for fame and in-game loot. Each Tourney is focussed on a different area of gameplay, so there’s a Tourney for everyone whether you’re a farmer, trader, diplomat or warlord!

I’m just a Bumpkin… How can I compete with a Prince?

Spoiler! :
You won’t have to! To guarantee everyone a fair chance at earning prizes, players are divided into three separate leaderboards during each Tourney. Your leaderboard is dictated by player rank, with prizes scaling as you rank up and advance to new leaderboards. If you rank up across one of the following boundaries during a Tourney your score will be transferred to the new leaderboard:

Commoners (Rank 11 and Under)
Gentry (Ranks 12 to 17)
Nobility (Rank 18 and Above)
How do I enter a Tourney?
That’s the easiest part of all! There is no button to press, invitation to accept or Gods to appease, as you simply log in and play Stronghold Kingdoms as normal. Once you take an action related to the current Tourney (e.g. Kill attacking troops in ‘Come Get Some!’) you are automatically entered into that Tourney and added to the leaderboard.

Can I compete in Tourneys on the go?
Spoiler! :
Fantastic question, Sire. As you may have heard Stronghold Kingdoms is now available on both and Android and iOS, letting you rise through the ranks wherever you are!

So uh, what's stopping me and my mates from just ping ponging flags back and forth for a few hours?

Let me take this one step further, what's stopping me and my mates from doing this with an autohotkey script for a few hours per day?

If your castles are open for your friends to raid flags, they are also open for any other players to do so.

Great tournament guys. May the person that can click 7 times the most often win.

Edit: I apologise for mostly coming on here to complain.. but come on.. Did you guys not foresee this would be the most effective way to play and questioned if this was a good concept at all?
The moment an enemy player starts raiding the flag raids will simply be blocked resulting in lost troops for the enemy. It's not worth it for them to interrupt the process.

dumbest tournament that could have been made. not designed for normal gameplay at all. the only way to even get 500 flags is for a person is to raid their own flags.
