Stronghold(s): Dead Animal Ammo, Beta

By Jim Rossignol on November 8th, 2010 at 2:54 pm.

The Stronghold news is twofold:

1) You can vote for the type of dead animal ammo for trebuchets to be featured in in Stronghold 3 just here. The choice is between a senile donkey, a cage of rabid otters, a retired dancing bear, or a sack of diseased badgers. Internet: you decide!

2) The Stronghold Kingdoms MMO is now in beta. You can play it if you wish.

Stronghold! I might change my name to Stronghold. “Stronghold Rossignol” has a certain ring to it. That is not news. I am just being flippant.

    Rossignol already hace a nice ring to it, reminds me of a flamboyant swashbuckler, ready to conquer the hearts of damsels in distress by swashbuckling his way through hordes of enemy swordsmen, with his trusty saber and a dirty limerick on his lips.

  2. Jonathan says:

    The only good animal ammo is a dead animal ammo.

  3. kikito says:

    What? No Cows? I’m outraged.

  4. Pijama says:

    Cows, definitely.


  5. noobnob says:

    How about using the corpses of your fallen enemies as dead ammo instead?

  6. Toby says:

    Hnnnng, I want Stronghold 3. Been playing the alpha of Kingdoms for a few months too.

  7. jti says:

    They totally missed the Monty Python moment there. I has a sad.

  8. mandrill says:

    How about wooden rabbits?

  9. Junior says:

    Oh god, how do they expect me to make that kind of choice?

    I might have to see if I can vote once for each and see if they put them all in…

  10. frags says:

    You have to pay money to have a freakin’ build queue ie to be able to build more than one structure.

    • D says:

      I agree with the above statement, but will add explanation: Stronghold kingdoms is not really worth your time, unless you’re a big fan of the Travian style webbrowser games.

    • A-Scale says:

      Stronghold Kingdoms != Stronghold 3, for the record.

    • Maykael says:

      I stop playing during the tutorial because of this dick-move… Hell to monetize an online experience…

      Excited about Stronghold 3 though.

  11. A-Scale says:

    Thank GOD They are going back to the old art style. It looks beautiful! I love Firefly!

  12. Jahkaivah says:

    “…his name?”

    “They call him… Stronghold Rossignol”

    *The room fills with frightened whispers.*

  13. Navagon says:

    No small yapping dog option? Small yapping dogs should only ever be used as ammunition!

  14. Neil says:

    The writing is awful. Commas and apostrophes are thrown in haphazardly but are mostly omitted where they should be used. Sentence structure is laughable, and even spelling is poor (“dependant”).

    This level of illiteracy is a big turn-off. Seriously, can no one in the office write above a 5th grade level?

    Game seems to be standard Travian-style with nicer graphics and a castle-building element.
