Welcome to The Stronghold!

Here on the Stronghold server we believe that H1Z1:Just Survive wasn't meant to be played as a KOS death match fest and that engagements with other players should be more meaningful. For this reason we have a ruleset that requires that some form of interaction is required to initiate an engagement. We believe that this makes the game more fun and adds a slight element of realism to the player engagements. Obviously, there will always be those people that just want to kill (look at the Wolves in Walking Dead) and as long as they demonstrate a degree of intent before killing then the interaction requirements are met. This is the minimum we expect to initiate an interaction. However, people that always kill will be flagged as bandits/bad guys by the servers' community and they may find that their victims are prepared for them.

You would be forgiven for thinking that our interaction rules are very "RP". So, let's get this straight, we're not an RP server. We don't expect you to create a character that has a back story and will be forever forgotten upon death. We expect you to play the game in a realistic way to give the stronghold a more immersive game style.

If you think that this server matches your play style, then hit the apply link!

This is an english primary server, you MUST be able to speak basic english to be able to interact in accordance with our ruleset. If you cannot speak english DO NOT APPLY!!!

Please welcome our newest staff members!

We are proud to announce the two newest members of The Stronghold staff: MissTopSwag and ArkDax!

We're excited to see them join the team!

There are only two positions available at the moment, so it was a tough decision to pick among the various applicants. We want to thank everyone who took the time to fill out an application and interview with us.

As always, we look forward to, and encourage, all players to submit ideas via the Stronghold forums. The majority of the rules and changes that have been implemented over the last two years have come directly from player input.

Quick Note : This is the 3rd week of a 6 week series of big events that will lead up to a championship-type event at the end of May. The more people there are, the more fun it'll be, so hype it up!

Winners so far :
Week 1 : Luckerdor
Week 2 : Bashing
Week 3 : You?

Overview : *As always, details are subject to change depending on attendance*
- Multi-stage team gathering event. The first stage will consist of one main goal and an optional sub-goal to unlock a perk to assist with the main goal.

- The main goal is to gather 300 wood logs, and the optional sub-goal is 400 sticks, but a team may only go for ONE goal at a time. Teams that gather the 400 sticks will unlock a shelter with backpacks for all team members, allowing for fewer time consuming trips while gathering the logs.

- The first team to 300 logs then has to choose TWO people to transfer the logs from their gathering box and through an obstacle course to a box near the starting point. (Teams that went for the backpacks will have an obvious advantage)

- Once a team has all of the logs in the final box, ONE person from that team will gain access to a shelter with 3 boxes in it.

- Each box will contain a specific amount of items that will reveal a 3 digit code to another shelter. That person must then figure out what order the numbers go in so that they can open the last shelter door.

- In the final shelter, there will be a bow drill. On top of the shelter with the bow drill will be a campfire. The first team to finish all of the other stages and light their fire using the bow drill, moves on to a team fight.

- The team fight will be a fist fight between the members of the winning team. The winner will be the last person alive, and a secondary winner will be the person with the most kills.

- The winners from the team fight will then fist fight each other to see who will win their choice of either the main prize or the secondary prize. The loser of the fight wins whichever prize the winner doesn't choose.

- Additionally, all members of the winning TEAM will be allowed to take an equal percentage of all of the logs/sticks that were gathered should they choose to do so. If someone declines their cut, everyone else that does take them will get a split of that.

- BOTH team fight winners will automatically advance to the Championship battle at the May 27th event.

Rules :
- Come as a fresh spawn. *NO Clothes (keep your belt pouch!)* *NO Gear* *No Vehicles*.
- Players will be divided up into 2 teams via a schoolyard pick.

- Team members are all given fire axes and satchels.
- The number of teams and gathering amounts are subject to change based off of how many people show up.
- If a team chooses to go for sticks to unlock backpacks, they may ONLY go after sticks until they gather 400 sticks or give up and start chopping trees.

- No Killing during the gathering part of the event!
- Zombies will most likely be an issue, we'll have a punji stick area that you may run to, or you may kill them with your axe/fists.
- If you do happen to die while gathering, come back as a fresh spawn and continue helping your team!

- No spamming voice chat, playing music, punching, or being disruptive. (spectators included)
- Small trash talk is allowed, but keep it as friendly as possible (a simple GG when you kill/die is much better than "later #@$#&").
- The most important rule of all. Have fun!

Prizes for :
Main Prize (Last Alive) - Pick of ONE skin from a selection or 500 assorted rounds of ammo.
Secondary Prize - Whichever prize the first person doesn't pick.
TEAM Prize - All logs gathered by both teams, split evenly.


** All in game prizes must be collected in 6 days. All steam items will be delivered in 7 days as soon as they become tradeable. Each winner will be sent a steam invite from a Mod/Admin.

Survival Saturday Presents : Stronghold Survivor - April 22nd




Special Note : Due to a game update that may require a wipe, we decided to switch events so we can put the ATV track to use a week earlier than planned so it doesn't go to waste.

Event : Stronghold Survivor : Week 1 - Collision Course
Date : Saturday, April 22nd (Today!)
Time : 1pm PT (3pm CT, 4pm ET, 8pm GMT)
Location : NT ATV Track (J4 - just west of Eastwood)
Can't Make it? Watch here : https://www.twitch.tv/h1z1stronghold

Quick Note : This is the beginning of a 6 week series of big events that will lead up to a championship-type event at the end of May. The more people there are, the more fun it'll be, so hype it up!

Overview :
- ATV Kamikaze Relay race!

- 2 random teams, one person from each team hops on an atv and makes their way around the course. Once they get back to the start/finish line, the next person goes, and so on and so forth.

- As a twist, teams will be going around the track in OPPOSITE directions

- In the event both teams meet up in a narrow section and are unable to pass each other, the two players will have to finish the course on FOOT and the atvs will be cleared by event staff. In order to keep it a fair race, if the track is not clear by the time the players get back to the start, we will hold the next 2 drivers back and give the team that reached the start first a head start by however many seconds behind the second player was.

- The first team to get all of their members through the course move on to an atv knockout duel against each other where the first person to finish advances and the second place person is eliminated. This will continue until there is only one person left.

- The winner of the event will automatically advance to the Championship battle at the May 27th event.

Rules :
- Arrive however you want, but keep your clothes on! NO Vehicles unless you're bringing an atv! No Shoes!
- Players will be divided up into 2 teams via a schoolyard pick.

- Players must stay on their atv unless it flips or blows up. If an atv blows up, that team will wait until the other team gets back to the start/finish and will be held back for the last recorded start/finish time difference +10 seconds before the next person can go. If the leading team's atv goes boom, the next player for that team will have the same time advantage the last player did -10 seconds.

- No jumping over furnaces! The track layout is specific. Drive carefully over ramps/bumps to avoid running into issues. Anyone that jumps over a furnace will cost their team 30 seconds of being held back each time. The only exception is if an atv goes boom and a player is returning to the start.

- No spamming voice chat, playing music, punching, or being disruptive. (spectators included)
- Small trash talk is allowed, but keep it as friendly as possible (a simple GG when you kill/die is much better than "later #@$#&").
- The most important rule of all. Have fun!

Prize for :
Eliminator Winner - Pick of ONE skin from a selection, OR 500 assorted bullets.
