I am looking forward to sieges :)

So sieges are kinda like Rift, where periodically hordes of enemies would rush NPC hubs. I used to call that "Alamo mode" cause it always looked really bleak for the players, even when you pulled it off.

 

My first siege, I'm going to Headlands. Only one way in, thus MUCH easier to defend.

Added a better description of Sieges.

Not that I have encountered during my observations of official sources. But with 5 scheduled for this year, and 1.020 last week this will be their next focus.

I like the way they split it down between paid stuff from the dlc, free stuff from the dlc and store items, something for everyone.
