sign up in this petition and lets get their attention!

Ipetitions.com

the target of this petition is to force firefly to add skirmish like in crusader, to stronghold 1 or release the gm1 code so we can mod it. firefly must release also tools like AIV and new ones for modifying the AI's army selection and the ability to add new fully configurable AI opponents.
----
You me and the rest of the good customers of firefly we pay money and we continue
do that.

what firefly do in return?
releases stronghold crusader "extreme" a pathetic excuse of a game with no point what so ever. instead of adding skirmish in the existing one stronghold 1.

We sent massages but we get nothing in return. all we see its a faceless company!

they don't want to release gm1 code, and so we cant mod.
if they want to keep it secret ok but in return do what we want!
WE are buying and you sell it.

What we want is:
1)add skirmish like in crusader, to stronghold 1 OR release the gm1 code so we can mod it.
2)release also tools like AIV, and new ones for modifying the AI's army selection, and attack methods.
3)the ability to the user to add new fully configurable AI
opponents.(faces,voices,animation,army customization.ect..)

We will not buy any of your games if you don't proceed as we ordered.

The latest patch has made Stronghold 3 playable for the campaigns, go try it out since it ramped up the gameplay pace to match Str1/2!

Stronghold 3's freebuild mode is getting much better now! It's not full blown skirmish but it beats the freebuild in any Stronghold game thus far!

To be honest ive always been a fan of the stronghold series, but i do think that Firefly let themselfs down with SG3, it had alot of potential...

Upon initial release the game was terribly buggy, but we have already had 3 patches and the game is slowly getting better. It's just a wonder why they didn't fix all this stuff before they released it, because now the game has a really bad reputation.

It has been confirmed that we will not see a skirmish mode as the game was not designed for it. Do not buy. Do not pirate. Do not approach.

This is the worst piece of **** ever created. They totally destroyed the saga. There is no AI or skirmish, just a super bugged campaign and castle siege. When we asked GM-s are they going to release skirmish with later updates they said no. Now you see why so much people are ****** off. They ask 50$ for an unfinished game without AI/Skirmish which is the most important part of this game.

hmm stronghold 2 is not rather a castle simulation game then a RTS, that's why stronghold crusader fans think it sucks. Stronghold 2 has a different game purpose compared to crusader.
in fact game-wise is stronghold 2 a way more advanced gameplay. more realistic (you don't need 200 bakers for one castle) stronghold 2 has more game aspects which should be taken account of, like honour. this gives the game a deeper dimension, but... makes it also harder to play.
So what I'm hearing around here is that stronghold 2 sucks because its hard and crusader is cool because it's easy to play.
If you are a real game fanatic, you'd go for the fun of more challenge rather that mass gaming of easy games.

At the moment, Stronghold 3 is unfinished, yet has been commercially released. Initially steam users discovered they had a French only version so wasted their money. No retailers in the UK had it on release day due to a fiasco over supply and pricing while Amazon still seems to have phantom copies in the post. The game itself has been rushed to meet a deadline. There are only a small handful of maps, all of which have many visible bugs and absolutely massive amounts of texture stretching. The game…
