If you have played any game for at least a little while, you have probably learned that maxing out anything is always the best choice. It is logical for the way most games work, but it is a little bit different for Rival Kingdoms. It’s a game that is highly oriented towards attacking. Defense is a vain effort in Rival Kingdoms, and even having a max Stronghold, you will lose a lot. So, that’s a reason why you should concentrate on offense in Rival Kingdoms. Your troops, your portals, your barracks all need a great deal of focus. If you have taken your offense to a high level, then you should move on and focus on upgrading your Stronghold. Of course, all of this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t focus on defense, it just means that you should focus a little less on defense, and a little more on offense.
But, in the end, it all boils down to your choice. If you like upgrading your defense more, you should do that. We are just here to advise you and direct you in a more efficient way, but of course, your choice is the most important thing.
