Keep in mind that in real life this happened the majority of the time. Generals hardly ever actually assaulted a stronghold unless it was worth the risk and the expense of so many resources. In most cases armies would just sit outside and wait for the defenders to surrender. For example, take the movie Troy. In the movie Agamemnon has command of thousands of troops. Even though he has a number advantage compared to the city of Troy itself, which has a much smaller garrison of troops, the kill ratio is greatly in their favor. In every version of the story the Greeks don't really make any real headway until after they get inside the city, then they make short work of the defenders. Before that though, boy, did they recieve a lot of casualties.

As for the Lay-Siege game mode. Sounds fun, most likely a lot of my early matches will be this. Just so I can learn the game mechanics.
