The documentation for Stormfall sucks mightily, and no righteous work dwells within it.

The documentation of the Stormfall game features is woefully inadequate. In numerous cases the "info" or "discuss" describes the benefit of some new feature but does not describe the procedure for obtaining that benefit.

Cases in point:

(1) PvP tournaments. The PvP tournament page describes rewards for participating in a tournament but does not describe how one enters a tournament or present a list of potential opponents in same. The info popup is vague and babbles about raids and such.

What is the purpose of this feature if all it is doing is telling me to raid or besiege castles?

(2) Legendary unit Naithi. The info popup describes the benefit of assigning infantry units to be “under” Naithi but does not describe any procedure for performing the assignment.

(3) For the few topics I have researched in the Knowledge database, the entries therein provide little if any new information.

It would be nice if the developers of this game put a little more effort into documentation.   It's not a matter of one being unwilling to experiment.  It's a matter of not having a clue how to use a feature of the game and finding the "Info" popup damnably uninformative.

1- PvP just means that units die in combat, this can happen in raids and such. Providing potential opponents wouldn't work I don't think, it isn't like an arena where it is 1v1 

2- You don't need to assign units to legendaries, if you send them in a raid/reinforcements with your infantry it is automatically applied

3- Knowledge is just a league wide bonus provided from the fortress update, all that information was listed within the update about a month ago

You can also check the Wiki if you've got any concerns, m'lord!

Thank you.  The WIKI page answers a lot of the questions I had.  Trying to find info on a specific issue on forums is like looking for a needle in a Level 16 barn.
