A Siege is an attack used to kill enemy troops and drain food supplies. If a Senator is present, the castle of the player who is being sieged can also be captured.
Every hour, the rate of claim will go up. When the claim reaches 100%, the city is captured. If the attacking Senator is killed during the siege, the claim will stay still until either the attacker retreats or another Senator arrives.
A good strategy is to assault the castle in question, followed by a siege, assaulting to rid the castle of any reinforcements that may arrive.
- Stay away from castles with higher score. If they seem better than you, they probably are. Of course, you are more than welcome to try if you are feeling risky.
- Sending two Senators does not increase the rate at which claim is gained, however it will stop claim from being halted if one Senator dies.
