P.S. - Chris is away, and since the normal time he usually posts the challenges is an hour where everyone in my timezone is asleep, I figured I'd give you all a little bit of a head start.

This sounds like really interesting challenge, I'd love to give it a try. Now I feel sorry I didn't bring a laptop with me with Stronghold Crusader installed on it. Still, I'm coming back from Greece on Friday, and on Saturday I should be home, and have some time to give it a try. It would be better if I could stay here some time longer, but what the heck, I should be able to answer on this challenge, so I've got that going for me. :-)

Hmm, Greece - lovely :)

I hope you enjoy it, EaglePrince.

 

But also, this is a very interesting challange.

I gave it a go and - yes - I managed to complete the mission at the first try.

Too much stuff on my to-do list to try and improve the timing further. But hey, I figure if EaglePrince also only has 1 day to do it, then that is only fair :D

 

Hope you will be able to put your submission in, EaglePrince.

Well, now I saw your time, you made it in 1226, so our times are pretty similar, you did great too. :)

 

Another thing I used, and it seems that you did not, are war dogs. They were really efficient against crossbowmen which would be way harder to kill otherwise. Only, as far as I remember, after war dogs are used the player needs to kill the dogs on their own as they would go on attacking villagers. At least that's how I think it works in skirmish games if I am not mistaken? In this scenario they worked differently - after the attackers are killed they come back into their cages, and there they stay until the next attack. This way they seem way more useful. Did you know about this?
