So, I got my first defensive siege, was looking forward to adding a tactical array of defensive engines to pitter the enemy with. But, it just auto-built a full comp of Balistas without my imput. And then the enemy charged right after building a ram and with no other engines...

Honestly I'd like an option in town/castle management that lets me build siege equipment before I am under siege. Presumably a castle or town that is in a war would do some forward planning...

It be awesome if you could build a catapult to launch directly into the rams or towers but nah. Just built baristas

Soldiers need that coffee to stand sentry all night so baristas wouldn't be to bad.
I was going to make this joke too.

Yeah, defensive siege feel like a rip off to me, It's usually much harder to do well since the AI won't actually attack you unless it thinks it will win. I always sally out because horse archers just give me so much more advantage then trying to fight in the siege map. I thin we need much better control and placement and to really be able to use all ranged units and siege equipment effectively for fighting in the siege map to be worth it.
