Originally posted by mermanIt doesn't take that long to play the defender, if your lucky you can play the defender in a month. Around 3 months on average for me. You can join 5 at a time so you can actually play a defender every month.
Why bother with having sieges at all? They look like it takes forever before the next person in line faces the defender.
Originally posted by AADavid1963This would make a nice new banded siege area. I don't bother with sieges, I waited once. Next, I realized most all sieges were dominated by high-rated players, or would soon be by high rated players in line before me.
How about Sieges by class, and once your rating goes too high, you're forced off that board and the next two duke it out for the vacated board?
Originally posted by KnightStalker47Read back to the first post... a 1700 player must climb to the next table, while the next two low rated players fight for the free banded siege table.
Perhaps the different colors could mean different rating limits. I don't think this will solve the problem of higher rated players dominating the boards. Because it takes awhile for games to finish, a 1200 rated player that is defending a board could go up a few hundred rating points in a few months and then they would own the board forever, because ...[text shortened]... ll of the boards would be controled by 1700+ players and it would be easier for them to defend.
