New Tourney

Don your robes and hold on tight to your prayer beads as you prepare to excommunicate your enemies!

Sire, we hear a dire rumour that other Lords across the Kingdom are not as righteous as us. Perhaps their Monks take to the bottle or engage in scandalous behaviour. Their unholy actions make me wonder if they are as pious as we are, Sire! I think we should excommunicate them from the church to teach them a lesson they’ll never forget…

The Lord or Lady with the most hours of excommunication caused to other players shall be heralded the winner of this Tourney, and a glorious prize bestowed upon them!

What is a Tourney?

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 focused 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?
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.
