Points come in various shapes and forms within Stronghold Kingdoms™.
- Leaderboard Points
- These points calculate your position on the leaderboard.
- Research Points
- Research points are used to to undertake research. Each research costs one (1) point. Three (3) points are given each time a player ranks up (including sub-ranks). Points may also be purchased for gold - the cost increasing with each bought point.
TIP: It is better to not pay for research until later in the game when ranking up takes much longer - that way the research points will not be as expensive as they would be if you purchased them earlier in the game.
