Stronghold Tournament (In a Castle!)
Last month we journeyed to Trifels in southern Germany, a reconstructed medieval castle near the small town of Annweiler. Why? For a Stronghold tournament of course! 36 of Germany’s finest went head-to-head playing Stronghold HD and Stronghold Crusader 2 both against the AI and competitively to decide once and for all who is the greatest lord! Our very own German Community Manager Pascal takes us on a journey up to an elevation of 1,600 ft. His travels take us to this impressive medieval citadel and through the tournament itself, while also explaining a little of the history behind Trifels. The significance of this place for Stronghold and in particular the Crusader series is something special, making it the perfect site for digital siege warfare.Got an idea for a Stronghold community event? Maybe you’ve already besieged and commandeered a castle for your own Stronghold tournament?! Let us know what your dream Stronghold tournament would look like in the comments below or if you have suggestions for similar events in castles a little closer to London!
