Hello fellow Stronghold fans!

I have recently started to record and upload a uncommented playthrough of the original Stronghold military campaign!

I know, I am not a pro like many of you are, but I think I am doing fine so far

Many years have passed since I last played this game, but it feels as if I've never stopped playing haha


Constructive feedback is wanted and appreciated - tell me what I am doing wrong! Any tips or tricks you know, that I don't?

Here is the link to the playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mqoQ-cA6dA&index=2&list=PLnJyBiwqrQkCsFTVEEg_m9yvbSBOsV8b5

Please note, that this is work in progess - I intend to finish it though.


P.S.: Any ideas on beating Mission 15: Carving a path other than I did? I really struggled there and could not come up with an own solution...

Best regards,
Vain

Here's a couple tips, although I've only watched your first two, so maybe you've picked some more things up.

The first is to put your hunting posts as close as possible to the granary, this minimizes their possible trip distance and makes them more productive.

The other is that there is a pretty easy way to eliminate the wolves in mission 2 (or any mission for that matter) without any risk to your archers. You can either start shooting them and then build a wall across a choke point while they're running so they can't reach your archers, and they'll disappear after running into the wall, or you can build the wall first and then shoot at them, and they'll just sit there and die.

Do you want to beat Carving a Path the easy way, or the way Firefly intended?

EDIT: My bad, I mixed up missions.

Well right, i am a little sloppy when it comes to those hunting posts since I generally try to avoid them. But thats just not possible in the first few missions haha

Thanks for the second one though, will try that immediately.

I have a bit of educational material here for you

If you ever wondered, how much the crusader lord can take, feel free to watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-xSjqAyo2vA

Quite interesting. When an enemy lord is alone on his keep, I would usually send 5 swordsmen to deal with him, but from your video I see that even four of them can do the job.

Haha, you never stop learning

One important thing, that really bugged me while I created this video, was timing. If only one of them is a single second late to the fight, the result might already be different.

Well, yes, that's why it could still be better to send five of those guys just in case.
