Another major feature of today’s update is the addition of several new gameplay features. Suggested by the Kingdoms community and implemented by Firefly, this new update focuses on improvements to the trading and diplomacy systems within the game.
On the trading front, players will notice they now have the ability to save favourite markets and quickly search for the best market prices around them. Changes have also been made to diplomacy in Stronghold Kingdoms, with a new feature that allows users to tag other players, Factions and Houses as Enemies, Neutrals or Allies. To do this simply target a player on the world map, go to their profile page and click on the “Diplomacy” button. Faction and House officials can set this status for rival Factions and Houses on their Faction and House screens.
Several smaller additions to the game have been made including a revamped report system for player issues and the ability for Premium Token players to set a max limit for troops automatically recruited whilst they are offline.
