An Important Message Regarding Your Account

This is a post to make you aware of an issue that might involve your Stronghold Kingdoms account information. We understand that your privacy and security is of the utmost importance, and we want you to know that we take the responsibility to safeguard your personal data very seriously.

Last year on July 4th 2018 we experienced a data breach by an unauthorised party who exploited a security vulnerability, subsequently acquiring data belonging to Stronghold Kingdoms accounts. The data we discovered to be stolen from us included email addresses, usernames and hash encrypted passwords.We do not ask for or store any sensitive or financial information as all transactions are handled by third parties (e.g PayPal) so this data was never at risk.

The security flaw that made us vulnerable was swiftly removed as part of our ongoing security updates, and we also released a statement previously regarding the breach, which can be found here

However, it has recently come to our attention that a number of the stolen hash encrypted passwords have since been decrypted and been made publicly available. It is because of this that we feel it necessary to bring this past issue to your attention again.

If you made an account on or before last year, July 4th 2018, and have not changed your password since, we urge you to do it now and to not use that password again in association with your Stronghold Kingdoms registered email address or any other online accounts.

We can only reassure you that we continue to work hard to protect your online security. If you have any further concerns, or would like your data removed entirely from our systems, please reach out to dataprotection@fireflyworlds.com with your username and email. Additionally, please refer to this link in order to view our advice in making a new secure password for Stronghold Kingdoms. 

Thank you, 

The Firefly Team

Your Journey Begins…

Sire, I see you have embarked on a new adventure. An adventure that will put your strength and strategic wits to the test as you explore these lands and rise to the top of the Kingdom!

 

What is the goal in Stronghold Kingdoms?
World domination! And of course, the satisfaction of building an empire from scratch, solving strategic puzzles and achieving greatness on the world stage. Whether you choose to become a tyrannical leader, an economic mogul, a highly skilled diplomat or just the master of your own personal Kingdom, the goal is yours to define.

Can I manage my Kingdom from multiple devices?
Indeed, Sire. You can command your Kingdom from almost any Windows, OS, iOS and Android device. Check out https://strongholdkingdoms.com for links to your desired devices.

Are there other worlds? And are they the same as this one?
There are over a dozen different world types, each with their own real-life country maps and even varying rule sets. While villages, ranks, research, etc. are linked to each specific world, you may enter all worlds and begin new journeys alongside your adventure on this world. (Note: World availability may differ based on device)

Where do I find more information on the gameplay?

Tournaments Update

We are happy to announce that Stronghold Kingdoms’ long-awaited Tournaments Update is now live across all game worlds! Following up on last month’s community-driven update, we’ve been building the new ‘Tourney’ system for some time now. It therefore gives us here at Firefly Studios great pleasure to finally launch the feature with our first ever tournament: ‘Canine Control’!

Tourneys are time-limited contests in which players compete across all game worlds to complete various PvE activities in search of glory and in-game loot. These activities cover pretty much all aspects of the game, making each facet of Stronghold Kingdoms even more rewarding. This new update is designed to combine the short-term dedication of quests with the world-wide competition of the popular Domination Worlds.
