You can start your own military campaign and win wars by controlling your territory. Stronghold 3 is a strategy type game. You have to follow some kind of strategy to get victory. For those who played already there is nothing much to explain. But this is post is more essential for those who are playing this for the first time. If you are finding a bit difficult to get rid of the enemies then you can have some solutions here. The game also offers multiplayer battle which lets you to combat against your friends.

    I am sharing some tips here which can help you to in many modes to deal with the most complicated battles in the game. I had emphasized more then attack and defense technique. It is not important that every time you will play an offensive game. There are some part where you have to rely more on the defensive gameplay. Some ready to strategy makes your gameplay easier. The tips which I had mentioned are beneficial for both single player and multiplayer mode. I will not say that you will surely win but surely this helps you to gain easily in the game. This version of game has much better building system which allows you more realistic gameplay. You can create a much better castle and village design. The physics are more real and with awesome graphics you can get awesome details. There are two campaign modes in the game. They are combat or economic. You can choose anyone of them.

    Tips for Stronghold 3 Military Units
    • The unit which you will get is enough strong to deal with any kind of enemy. By default you will face mainly bear, wolves and peasants attacking your units. So do not leave the scenario unseen. Keep an eye on the all parts. The game has Lord which rules the units and the time till he lives your chances to win the game are greater. Lord dies you loose.
    • Try not to get engaged much with the peasants. They are easy kill. You can use them to draw your enemy’s attention towards your pre-planned trap or strategy.
    • Use Macemen in the melee units. They are quickest one. In the same way Archers are fastest rangers. If you have enough crossbowmen in your team, then your unit is more and more strong. But they cost a lot. Use them to fight with the armored troops.

    Attacking strategy :
    I had tested some if this strategies and really found them helpful. So it is quiet recommended that you must follow. Later on you can upgrade yourself for better one.
    • When you are charging on an enemy, divide your troops in number of groups. You have to do this before. Keep the weakest one which are the peasant on front so that they can engage the enemies and other can kill them without much damage.
    • Animals can act as your weapon which can kill troops also. When you are sending peasant do not sent them all together. Let them follow each other, so that if there is any kind of trap you can get aware of that. Set Men at Arms to attack the largest number of forces.
    • Whenever you are planning for an attack, choose a weakest point. Deploy some units there and let others engage the enemies. If you have strong and vast troops then this can be used as effective weapons against holding attacks and slow down the attacking force.
    • If possible deploy some from the back of the enemy.

    Defend Strategy
    • Keep some number of Mantlets in the field. They will not cost much but will give excellent defends.
    • Make towers and keep the Archers over there. Fired arrow attack by Braziers is more beneficial to defend yourself. They can attack to a much longer range. Something burning oil too helps here a lot to defend from troops who attack from your walls.
    • Ensure to keep some traps ready which can slow down the enemy for some while.
