It's not as good as any other battleship though, not even close. Upgrading it for ranked seems like a total waste of renown.
And Kroot warsphere being treated as BB in terms of costs is kinda ridiculous in terms of power level.
Stronghold is just as good as any battleship, it has the firepower and health, the kroot is a battleship but seriosuly cheap in terms of points cost, not gonna lie mate, but renown isn't a problem, im sitting with just under 60k in skirmish while I work my way up to 100 in elite mode with tau
Renown is pointless in SP and progression MP, it's just a grind. I'm speaking about ranked Mp where you have fixed 8k renown to upgrade your fleet. It's just not worth it, you'd rather upgrade a more powerful ship for that cost. Stronghold has less health than most BBs, is prone to running away without you being able to stop it, lacks favours, crew and good damage upgrades and is one of the slowest BBs in the game making it a questionable investment in many MUs, esp for 2400 renown if you want to fully upgrade it.
If you just play SP, you won't see the problem, you just have to grind a bit longer.
