Stronghold Kingdoms just got a whole lot more interesting — not in terms of the game itself because nothing has changed — but one of the largest houses is getting its ass handed to itself by a smaller team, and people are defecting all around. It just goes to show that being the biggest isn't always the best if you don't take any action.
