Furia has a crafter that dies in Alberworth and loses a bunch of rare ore. They drop a siege on Sorgom and asset two of our hamlets at off hours when no one is online. So we show up to the Sorgom siege which is on off hours. Furia doesn't even show up. So we siege Furia back at Alberworth, they barely defend and don't even repair anything for hours before we dropped the siege. Meaning we started the siege with all the walls down already. Furia spends then next 12 hours asseting every holding we have taking down portals so we can't come fight them. So what we can just repair them for practically free. Drow shows up to the Alberworth siege and totally outclasses us in combat right now. Before we left for the siege, I had everyone stand in a group and crouch if they had: an r90, a WoF to 50/75, at least 3 rays to 50, etc. So we roll up to the siege stones and end up fighting 8 drow and we wipe. We regroup and regear for a second fight and they have even more people there and we have only 2 more guys that weren't there yet. Wipe again. We're asking for Alliance vs Alliance sieges here. Gold is practically worthless why are clans being hired as mercs in beta to defend a clan that can't defend themselves?
