    i feel like to show my result to the comunity as i think its a good achievement !? for a relative newbie player (45days old player).

    what is your stronghold records?

    i figured out couple of trick but i still cant believe how ppp could reach lvl 51. at 39 they alread one hit me ... and two hit my tank... or after mystical you can outgrowth the scaling of auto incr. difficulty by that far?

    anyway stronghold tricks are very valuable since its the main source of gold. able to run 50+ ish everyday from the two stronghold together is a nice sum of gold.

    if you have any further tips, dont hesitate to share :)

    Regards
    H.

    I've been playing for about 5 months and my record is lvl 25. I mainly lack the time for better tries, but I feel that after certain level it really depends on the spawn you get. Especially on the western one, where archer frer spawns are really easy, and when you get an archer you get trouble

    I've played f2p. I play everyday the 10 PvP battles, and both strongholds till level 10-20.
    I'm warlord level 22. I have 16 regs on 3* lvl 19 full upgraded. A couple more on lvl 18 2*, and the rest only half upgraded. As you can see, I like having as many regs as posible.

    When SH was first released the scaling of the battles wasn't as steep. Basically you wouldn't even see 4S fights until you hit around 30 and even then each subsequent battle only scaled slightly higher. Right now you'll start seeing 4S around about 10 and it scales a lot faster too.

    If climbing SH to the highest point or gold farming is your goal you're better off with 2* regiments and only upgrade either pure physical or pure magical defense armors (obviously swapping to suit what's needed). That's the thing about fights being scaled by your AP: promotions add unnecessary stats and crit chance/damage also add a lot of AP based on random results.

    these days im reaching Icy Stronghold lvl 35 without any issue and grass stronghold lvl 20. You need to understand this game meta, as well as tricks. The AI is stupid, and you have to pick the right regs. and dont bluntly upgrade all. Be prepared to play 4-5 hours per day.

    my current progress: Im mythical WL23 with many kuromos and 15% banner as well as 4* regs on main party.

    I'm very well versed in the meta. Let us know how you do once you've upgraded to optimal mythical on your top 5.

    Personally I'm only willing to dedicate tops 1h for SH.

    i remember someone said after maxing out everything (WL23, lvl13 wep, armor, banner and 5* regs) its impossible to do more than 20 SH run.

    i dont think so...

    Impressive run, but the picture doesn’t show any of your army Regs at 5s.

    Stronghold (and other battle) difficulty is based on the strength of your army. When you are all 5s it will be difficult to beat this record.

    Not impossible to do 20 at that point, but I would be shocked if you can still get to 40.

    To give you an idea of AP difference, my battle 29 has more to kill than your 40. My 35 has about 17k total enemies.

    Yes. Also because of this your 4* mages are 90% as much offense as 5* since enemies have low magic defense and it caps at 2.0 multiplier.

    This is why as you get higher AP SH gets harder unless you gear down. Lots of wasted stats contributing to AP.

    I think I have posted it before. Here are some reflections about that:

    My personal record is 29 on both, but before PvS system was changed.

    Now is about 16 and on those battles I have seen one pike reg with 5K soldiers. It is imposible to survive to a one hit of that power.

    When you have your regiments maximiced is really dificult to win 15th lvl or above.

    I would like the strongholds to have a limited number of battles (maybe a player AP depending) and that the rewards would be better compensated at high levels.

    I do think the rewards (XP and Gold) are scaled. Dropped items are also scaled to a lesser extent as brand new players won’t find as much mythical gear and high level upgrades as players who have reached that level.

    Exact amounts vary based on enemy unit type, but since those of us who are fully 5s spawn harder (more) opponents at a specific level (for example level 10) than those with 4s armies it means we get more gold and XP for that battle. Probably not as much as being able to fight more levels would earn, but I think we do earn more for the same number of levels on average.

    I have 20 of all upgrades saved except one. I fight a weeks worth of Stronghold battles and then sell all my excess upgrades over 20 every Sunday. That typically earns me 150k to 200k gold each week on top of the gold earned for the fights themselves. Enough to keep the forge running full time.

    @Hai Here's an example of higher AP fights. https://imgur.com/a/UBK4XK0. Still doable but requires lots of restarts for key crits.

    EDIT: Just noticed something interesting but I don't know what it means. My level 29 screenshot shows a star, the second one at 38 shows 3 stars where the level number is. Also mine has different colors than Hais screenshots (silver)
