This game is why I am starting to doubt PC gaming is a good place to be for a non-casual gamer. I mean did anyone here actually play this? It is complete dumbed down casual GRIND HEAVY garbage. It is essentially Farmville except not on Facebook and (now the world ends) slightly more complex and with a stronghold skin.
Also nice wording there "1.5 million registered users" vs "X active users"
And finally, I find it hilarious they blamed the publisher for Stronghold 3 debacle. When they promo'd the wall system WE IN THE FORUMS TOLD THEM THAT THIS SYSTEM HAS SEVERE ISSUES. They wanted to make buildings merge into the walls, we told them that was technically impossible with the way walls work.. we turned out to be right (and how they wanted to make the "destruction procedural" .. I know a bit about walls in games, don't ask.. I even made a wall mod for LOTR BFME2 so I knew that there is no possible way to make a physical mesh merge correctly with a procedural mesh. And the horrible wall building system is the primary reason I don't like SH3, it could be a passing fun game, if only the walls weren't completely worthless and had issues everywhere (including physics.. funnily enough)
