Good series of games, but I do agree about the hacking at the walls, was only bad thing in the game in my opinion. Love how the defenses look in the screens for this game. Will the wood burn?

If you enemy does not have proper siege equipment he can't do anything to you inside your walls besides sieging it (preventing you from collecting resources) and shooting some arrows over the walls (you can send arrows right back though...)

Ranged siege equipment which are Human Trebuchet, Orc Catapult, and Elven Bolt Thrower are able to damage walls slowly, each of these siege engines drain stone resource to fire, this again means that if you forgot to bring stone in your siege, trying to use siege weapons are useless.

Gate Siege Equipment include the Human and Orc Battering Ram and the Elven Treent which kicks the door slowly. Gate Siege Equipment are the only units that can damage even gates, so you won't even have swordsman slashing gates to death.

Third type siege equipment is the Wall Scaling Siege equipment, these include siege ladders and siege towers, they move to the walls and attach gaining access to the wall, your units can move up and gain control of the wall.
But there are many counters to the enemy Scaling your walls, but then again if done right it is by far the fastest.

Just a note about gates, each gate has gate gears behind it, if attacked by melee units it will open the gate.
You can quickly rush up with siege towers and ladders, scale the walls and fight your way to the stairwell down the stairs and over to the gate gears to open the gate; very effective if you have an army of calvary waiting to rush through the gate.

Bugs aren't the problem, figuring out how to fix them is.

Just a question.

Are ladders a one at a time type thing.

Meaning if anyone played Stronghold you could basicly rush 50 units up one ladder in two seconds.

This isnt possible right?

You can have may ladders on a wall. And you generally get about 4 units on a ladder at once, they go up in single file... This means that the defenders have a numeric advantage against ladders, towers hold more of course so its easier to break through a defense...
Siege towers must be destroyed by units, melee are most effective once latched on (or cavalry, but to get cavalry outside your walls... risky...). Ladders however are far weaker, much easier to destroy, and Im assuming can be pushed off by melee units. However ladders are FAR cheaper than siege towers.

While in other games, ranged siege weaponry is the only really viable way, in
DoF each way is perfectly plausible. But why choose one? Why not send a ram to the gates and a couple of towers to the walls? The defensive fire must be spread, meaning an increased chance of your siege equipment surviving long enough to make a difference. Send up the orcs to charge down the puny elves on their wall, make mincemeat out of them while the ram takes down the gate and storm the rest of your army in! Some nice slaughter
