I was playing for over a week, I hadn't even gotten to Stronghold Level 10. Its a game that each level to increase the stronghold requires you to upgrade other buildings, the construction times increases with each level and you only get one construction queue. Around level 8, the stronghold would take would take over 7 hours to the next level. Other buildings were around 2 hours each, so you most likely won't be building up the stronghold a level a day beyond level 8.
After Stronghold Level 10, you become a bigger target for other players to attack as you can "Lose" you Hero. I don't know what that exactly does, but I assume you could probably lose out on the bonuses to construction and research that your Hero can provide; this makes building up you town and stronghold an even longer process.
I have given up at this point as I haven't even gotten a confirmation from Gamehag that my registration was accepted. In my honest opinion, I wouldn't waste the time unless you want to shell out money to get a bunch of speedup items. It would probably still take you over 2 or more weeks to get done.
