Ok WG. Did you use your random numbers generator to determine the times teams can't set SH defense?

Remove the god damn attack/defense system altogether. Leave only skirmishes.

Honestly Stronghold was supposed to be Clan Wars for people with no time for CW. Meanwhile we got pretty much the same deal.

You want to get skirmishes when you feel like without game forcing schedules on you? -> Stronghold

You want to earn gold, fame and more? You have more free time? -> CW

Thats how it should be.

it still is bro....at tier 4 ...a Clan that has a Tier 4 Stronghold, should be able to win a province in Africa.You advance to higher levels?..time to prove you are worth for it.Not every clan should have the same benefits, just saying.The Top ones will always be able to keep their stronghold at max tier due to skill.The lower ones, well, learn to play better, progress and get to better SH tiers.

Hopefully this will get most clans back into the light of day (or of the pillaging fire:izmena:)

damn WG. can't you just change it to like how the MM works. if i am tier 6 all lower ones can attack you. but not the tier 8-10.

cause there is a reason why SH isn't used by smaller clans

Agree.

 

I dont think this change will stop the seal clubbing by the best clans.

Tier X SH clans will still attack the tier V to VIII SH clans, now they will just beat them with tier 8 vehicles instead of tier 10 vehicles.

Outcome will be the same.

 

Most clans will give up on SH after being bashed by one off the top clans every night for a week.

Iam pretty sure most the clans that let their SH CC degrade to level 4 will keep it that way.

Could you change option 3? It's a little silly that clans with good strongholds must play tier8 tanks just because the attacker is so bad. Just allow defenders to pick what tiers and playernumbers will be used. I feel defenders should have that advantage, as well as consumables advantage, otherwise weaker clans will never move above tier4 SH

You guys are just blinded by greed. You could have a T4 stronghold with all it's benefits that you never had before SH came along and what you do?

Complain it's unfair and cry for more. Sorry to lay down the sad truth but SH was developed to be competitive on higher levels and not to cater to everyone's needs.

how about no..and now i am not speaking out of Skill wise...i am speaking about WG's other major problem that they didn't fix...time of defence...Most of ther tier 8-10 SHs have their defence time at ridiculous times to avoid attacks..so a big clan, has to find accesible time defenses, of which small clans have plenty...trust me, most of the Top Clans want to attack Only tier 8-10 SHs but their time defense doesn't allow us..so we have to go for weak clans with good time defense.

You want challenge? Play damn clan wars.

Honestly its like people want Stronghold to be literally same as CW, except you have farmville interface instead of a map.

That defense time restriction is a joke. Great, now they all defend at 4.00 am to avoid fighting. This will change nothing.

Have you noticed, how all these things WG keeps adding to the game give big in-game advantages, but they keep getting awarded / suited to the top performing players / clans, who are actually the ones least in need of advantages. Just like PM's flooding silver into fully developed accounts / purples who have little use for silver except to spam it on prem ammo all the time. Strongholds seems exactly the same, it was when I was playing and seems too little is being done to address it. I don't think people have a problem with good players / clans - there be giants, it's the natural state of things. But there be giants waltzing round on [edited] huge stilts given to them by WG is what people have an issue with. The game needs some kind of even playing field or it's really not a game at all, is it.

We are already playing CW at Top-Level but as any top clan out there, we enjoy the Credits and Missions from Strongholds.And its way easier to make Industrial Resources from SH attacks than from Skirmishes.I mean, if  we succesfully capture 3x tier 8 buildings( 2 buildings + command center ) that means roughly 5k industrial resources in 3-4 battles.While to make them in Skirmishes, would take us 25 battles  of tier 8 skirmish or 12 tier X skirmish...so SH attacks seems the better way...now the fact that the Tier 8 or higher have a stupid time defense ( thanks WG ), we have to go for the weaker clans but with better time defense.

Obviously players / Clans should advantage themselves as much as they can to give themselves best opportunity & maximum return, but fact is (like many aspects of this game) it needs a more even playing field to maintain volume interest & to give success real credibility & meaning (as I'm sure many top players & clans also want).

I'm obv too dumb to follow the logic of the creator of this list

 

 

what do these numbers mean in column 3?

 

8/10, 10/15

 

Tier / Number of vehicles ? I can't think of anything else....

Then we have a typo in #3 (Small clan attacking big clan). Its either 15 Vehicles in Tier 8 (8/15), or 15 vehicles in Tier 10 (10/15)

 

Please clarify, since that is quite a difference
