‘Siege That!’ Victor Crowned

enFirst off a massive thank you to the gallant warriors who fought bravely in our ‘Siege That!’ tournament besieging three mighty castles. We had a great time defending against the onslaught of catapults and archer fire, clashing swords with the multiplayer community that’s so important to the Crusader games. The peasants of Pyke Castle, DoubleHill and Steinschloss can now live in peace, with the last bloody battle fought in Sunday’s grand finale.

Thanks also to Cons7an7ine and bayoda for creating the original versions of these fantastic maps, if you’d like to try them out for yourself just head over to Steam Workshop and search for one of the three map titles. Last but not least we musn’t forget our fan site Stronghold Nation, who inspired the team by running their own siege tournament earlier this year and gave us the idea for our own ‘Siege That!’. Thanks to Nigel in particular for his suggestions and don’t forget to check out their site for competitions in the near future.

Having recovered from 31 intense desert sieges, we can now congratulate the winners of our first ‘Siege That!’ tournament:

  • Third Place – perryale90
    • All Crusader 2 DLC
    • One Firefly Studios game on Steam
  • Runner-Up –  DSPL
    • All Crusader 2 DLC
    • Signed physical copy of Stronghold Crusader 2
    • One Firefly Studios game on Steam
  • ‘Siege That!’ Champion – blobka
    • All Crusader 2 DLC
    • Signed physical copy of Stronghold Crusader 2
    • One Firefly Studios game on Steam
    • Firefly Studios T-Shirt

The walls of Steinschloss castle are still drenched in the blood of soldiers who desperately tried to break through its fortifications. After managing to defeat us on DoubleHill, both blobka and DSPL contended for first place in a pair of fierce final round sieges. While they broke through our outer defences with ease, DSPL’s troops were slain moments before they reached the keep. Shortly after blobka’s knights crossed swords with the defending Firefly lord, the skilled Crusader 2 player demonstrating his superior tactical knowledge of the game and earning him the title of ‘Siege That!’ Champion.

Third place was fought over between SKARABEI007, FireRanger and perryale90, with perryale90  the only combatant savvy enough to get his troops to the keep and draw out the opposing lord, for a close-quarters Lord-on-Lord fight.

We do hope everyone enjoyed the ‘Siege That!’ Tournament, live streams and giveaways on our Twitch channel! Everyone at Firefly is looking forward to further competitions and tournaments in 2015, so subscribe to our Twitch channel and never miss a single match or chance to win free codes!
