As you already know, the Stronkhold mode was started today. In the meanwhile, the suspicious lack of new info has been explained: Storm has vacation. - recent changes in the “light T-54″ also showed that the frontal turret armor was reduced from 180mm to 160mm. Storm states that the 180mm most likely stays at the front where the turret armor is practically unsloped, 160mm will be the sloped part - stronkholds not for players who don’t want to be in a clan? “Don’t want to be in a clan? Then don’t be. In random battles, there will be many events, missions etc.” - Finding 20 decent people for stronkhold too difficult? “Strange how other players do find others and create clans? What makes them different from you?” - stronkholds will apparently be useful even for smaller clans, that won’t have to wait for events and the bonuses will help them grind - the raids (SS: what is the official English term? Forgot…) in Stronkhold mode are analogical to companies, but there will be no encounter or assault in them, the same analogy applies for the map choices (just like in companies) - stronkhold consumables will come later – “follow the news” - stronkhold resources will be awarded for defeats as well, but less - stronkhold statistics will be kept separate, just like with team battles stats - a clan cannot lose its stronkhold completely - attacking and defending of stronkholds between clans will come later
