Strongholds is a PvP 20 vs 20 match available since lvl 60 that takes place in a closed instance, requiring players to queue into it.

The match takes place beetween two teams of 20 players and lasts until one of them wins.
Wins the first team that destroys enemy Guild Hall.
Healing Guild Hall can be done, applying [Supplies] into the Mimic.
There are 6 nodes on the map.
Every node can be captured by one of the two teams.
To start contesting the point, one must add [Supplies] into it.
To rush and capture enemy node, players have to attack it and reduce its Hit Points to zero.
Capturing is blocked when there are enemies (how many? no more than three less? times? than attacking team?) near the attacked node.
There are three lanes on the map, called top (Knight's lane), mid (Reaper lane) and bot (Dwarf lane). Each lane contains two nodes. Having captured both nodes on the lane, it is possible to build catapults on this lane and add ammo to them.
To build a catapult, it is required to add 4 [Supplies]. To add ammo, it is required to add 1 [Supplies] per attack.
There are 2 catapults per line.
Beside Guild Hall Hit Points, there are also individual player points.
To gain a reward, player have to collect at least 200 points.
