Shadowbane has been having some issues with their seige system as of late and is taking steps toward fixing the issues. However, until they get the problems worked out, the system is going to be put on hold.
In the last few days following last week's patch, we have been made aware of problems affecting the siege mechanics and the times that they can be set to go Live at.
After thoroughly investigating the issue, with the help of Shadowbane players and the feedback you have provided, it has been decided that until this issue is corrected, sieging will be put on hiatus.
In other words, starting today and until these problems are fully resolved, the Shadowbane Customer Care Representative (CCR) team will be removing every bane circle found on all three production game servers; Redemption, Wrath and Mourning.
Any siege assets found near the bane circle and belonging to the same nation that placed the bane circle will also be removed, each structure and hireling, reimbursed to its owner in the form of deeds and contracts. As for the bane circle itself, please have your guild leader send a petition requesting the bane circle scroll back regardless of who in the guild (guild leader or not) placed it. Every removed bane circle will be thoroughly documented so please include the following information in your petition when requesting a bane circle reimbursement to allow us to more easily link your request with a bane circle we removed and documented:
We ask that you do not place a bane circle on any city until the problem is patched and this procedure is no longer in effect. In order to spread the word to all the players and specifically those that do not frequently read patch notes and/or visit the website and forums, please inform your guild of these temporary measures to avoid purchasing and placing a bane circle in vain.
We hope to have this issue resolved within a reasonable time frame. While this temporary solution is less than ideal, we feel that it needs to be implemented to ensure a fair environment for our player base.
Once more, we appreciate your continued patience and understanding.
