I tend to stay away from infographics, but when – like this Stronghold Crusader 2 one – they contain a statistic for “Diseased animals thrown from trebuchets”, I sit up and pay attention.
Stronghold Crusader 2 was released on 23 September, and a newly-released infographic lists a whole bunch of stats from the first week of gameplay. For instance! Did you know that 150,307,469 soldiers were killed (in-game, thankfully) during that week? That’s apparently half of the estimated population of the world during the Third Crusade.
Other statistics include number of castles destroyed, total number of victories in Multiplayer and Custom Skirmishes, and a rather surprising stat for longest multiplayer game. I can honestly say I’m glad I wasn’t in that one.

Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
