Strongholds Public Test: Raid Mode


With the launch of this latest Public Test, you will have the opportunity to upgrade your Stronghold to its maximum level through the acquisition of industrial resources. As your Clan's Stronghold crosses into Level 5 and beyond, your Clan will become eligible to battle against other Strongholds!

Strongholds represent Clan property and consist of a virtual military base, the zones surrounding it, and auxiliary buildings. Strongholds are created by Clan commanders for free.

In order to ensure that raiding in Strongholds is as exciting and enjoyable as possible, we would like your feedback regarding all aspects of this new play mode. By taking part in the Strongholds Public Test, you can help us to shape Strongholds through your feedback and suggestions. With your help, our development team can continue to review your feedback and make improvements.

Take part in a Strongholds Raiding contest and be the Clan to win 25,000 for your Clan Treasury! Please ALSO leave your feedback and any bugs you may find there.
