True. I realize it would make attacking cities a little more challanging. It just seems as no one is speaking to correct this little inaccuracy in the system. There is nothing to simulate all of the defenses that a walled or castled city should have. Hence, they seem worthless. If Castles came with a dumping boiling on attackers. Nothing to simulate a moat. Some mods do this. I've seen battering rams and seige towers in mods too. I picture Legolas of LoTR, firing dozens of arrows and picking off incomming melee. First Strike seems to be the option to simulate this, but I feel it is poorly done.
