Lord of the Rings Siege is a server that divides the online players into two teams. One attacking team and one defending team. The goal of the players vary per team. While the attacking team usually wins by destroying their enemy forces or taking over their fortress, the defending team wins by defending their locations, and usually holding off the enemy for a long enough period of time.
Gameplay In the battle, every player must choose their own class and spawn location, which they can change between lives (while respawning and preparing in their team lobby) There are a lot of different classes and they are different for each of the two teams. Players spawn in their team lobby in front of a wool map of the current battle, giving them an useful overview of the current battle and its progress.
CTF The attacking team can take the fortress by capturing a set amount of flags located on strategic locations. These flags can be captured by having a group of attacking players (more players equals quicker capture) stand around the flag and wait for the flag to be captured. After a flag gets captured the attacking team can spawn there and the defending team no longer can, taking a part of the map for the attackers and thus getting one step closer to victory.
Classes The teams both have 4 types of classes: normal, voter, point and donator classes. Normal classes are available for all players on the server, no matter what rank and status. Voter classes can be achieved for 24 hours by voting for the network on PlanetMinecraft. This progress can be repeated once per 24 hours and you can thus by repeated voting always use them. Point classes can be bought with a set amount of in game currency (points), you gain points by killing people, capturing flags and by voting. You can check your current points using /stats. Donator classes can only be achieved by purchasing a certain rank on the server in the store.
