Simply what it says, lets get everyone wanting Skirmish mode in, to post here

And by Skirmish mode, we mean a free mode where you can play against computer generated opponents with castle on castle brawls. It should be like a freely generated Conquest mission with all buildings and features activated. It should not be scripted, it should be open.

Re:Petition: Skirmish mode 3 Years, 1 Month ago  
I am going to go on a limb here and speculate that, given the absolute non-existence of an dynamic AI there is absolutely no chance for there to ever be a Skirmish mode made "after-release"

I want Skirmish mode, for the record because thats what Stronghold is ABOUT in the first place. But as someone who is not only gamer but also worked on games, i can tell that things like these are design decisions made many many months ago.

Anyhow, i only registered here to post a list of all my encountered glitches, lets hope they are all fixed in a patch. But creating a skirmish mode like in Stronghold Crusades or Stronghold in general would require the AI to actually, dynamically build castles, more importantly, the AI would need to become battlefield aware, be able to have diverging decision trees, emergent trial and error approaches, knowledge how to use sieges, and each unit, how to build a working economy (meaning build-plans for each AI and for each-map would need to be made for the AI to even work...)

In many ways, that'd be like creating an unique new game even if art assets and maps could be re-used....

Re:Petition: Skirmish mode 3 Years, 1 Month ago  
Stronghold 3 was designed as a throwback to the original Stronghold. It’s a new generation Stronghold game and as you know the first title is all about story, in this case The Wolf’s military exploits and Lady Catherine’s economic tale. Really it’s a different beast to sister titles like Crusader and Legends, which are more skirmish-based. There are currently no plans to add a skirmish mode to Stronghold 3 and we’re not ready to talk about the future of the franchise just yet, but hopefully the map editor and historical sieges will keep you busy in the meantime
