Lord of the Rings Siege
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 3 types of classes: normal, voter and point 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.


Commands
There are several executable commands on the server that help you experience
the best play, this is a list of the most useful commands, there are
more commands and those can be seen using /commands.
/stats - This command shows you your statistics. Statistics include kills, deaths, points and many more.
/commands - This command lists all commands default users can use.
/settings - With this command you can toggle gameplay mechanics like death messages and leave/join messages.
/msg - With this command you can send a player a private message only you and that player can see.
/hub - Returns you to the server hub

Joining
You can join this server by going to our server hub using mc.empirewar.org, clicking your compass and selecting "Castle Siege".
In case you do not have access to your compass, you can also go to this server using the command /server siege.



You can get Donator Ranks to support the server on http://empirewar.org/storeThese ranks are adjusted to the EULA but some rewards are necessary for the server's survival.

I wouldn't call our server pay 2 win, but I agree that giving rewards to people who pay isn't that fair.
Sadly, if we wouldn't do this, we wouldn't be able to run our servers.

Server Review:


7 out of 10

I've played on this server for many years, and it has by far some of the best CTF maps I have ever played on.  That said, I can't give this server a top-notch rating because of some glaring issues stemming from server management.




Firstly, anyone who has played the server for a while can tell you that the server has host issues that can cause massive lag spikes, at times.  The lag is not always game-breaking, but it can cause problems for anyone trying to play a melee class on an average to below-average computer.  It is true that the grandeur of the maps and amount of people online do naturally cause some amount of lag, but it is relatively clear, at this point, that the server host is the major contributor to most of the lag problems.

Secondly, and perhaps most critically, there are almost no active moderators or admins regulating the server.  This means that the chat can easily become flooded with nonsense, and often some language, with no one being muted in-game.  Very rarely are there moderators online who can mute or kick problem players.

Thirdly, the server is a haven for hackers.  Server management is good about banning hackers who have been screenshotted, but it is terrible about banning hackers on the spot.  On multiple occassions, there have been blatant fly-hackers who have been able to continue playing and ruining gameplay for hours upon hours because there is no one online with the administrative powers to kick and ban them.



With all of that said, it should be a testament to the potential of this server that I continue to play on it and enjoy playin on it.  Though there are certainly problems with lag, chat, and hackers, these problems are not always present, and it is incredibly fun to play on this server when these problems aren't there.

The maps on this server are massive and, usually, very well balanced.  Whatever your normal CTF playing style is, you are likely to find a class you can use and have fun playing with.  If you like raw power, you can play as a Troll who has resistance and knockback at the cost of speed.  If you like sniping, like myself, you can play as a Crossbow Uruk who can one-shot certain classes at the cost of a 5-second crossbow loading time.  If you just want to run around like crazy, you can play as a Goblin Mercenary with speed III but who can be one-shot by just about every other class.


In the end, this server is certainly worth playing on for a good, fun time, but there are problems that make it not quite good enough for me to justify donating towards its cause.

Thanks for the constructive review!
We do have host issues, but I never NOT experienced any big lag spikes myself for weeks, so this is probably
something that is with your computer as well. (Note that American people will always have a bad connection since this is hosted in Europe, which is in no way preventable).
We try to ban hackers as much as we can, but sadly, with this amount of users, there will always be new ones joining and we can never ban them immediately. There will sadly always be people abusing things and trying to ruin other's fun, but we do as much as we can to prevent that.
We are working on getting more staff.

I think it would be nice to have more maps. EpicQuestz has some maps that aren't on the server, is this just because no real battles were fought at those places? I think some imaginary battles would still be just as fun. Excited to see how the server might change for 1.8 (maybe armor stands to despaly each class?) Keep up the good work, I wish I could give more than one diamond.

If you mean Barad-Dur, that map is very outdated.
The Black Gate is almost ready to be used as a map and will be up soon.
Weathertop is used for LMS, because of the smaller size.
1.8 will definitely bring more possibillities.

This is a really great server, but after I played for a while one of the admins called me a hacker.  After that happend everyone else called me a hacker too, while I clearly wasn't hacking at all. After that i quit the server because I felt pretty uncomfortable by being accused of hacking. I don't want to give your server a negative reputation, but I hope that the mods will take some more time before accusing somebody of hacking.

We do really good checks before accusing someone of hacking. NCP will have went off for you several times, and an admin must have seen this. He will also have checked and thought you hacked, maybe after players reported it.
It could had just been caused by lag on either a staff member or your side, and I hope it won't happen again.
If it does, be sure to send a forum message to an admin (preferably not that one) and we will settle this for you!
