it has occured to me that while defending castles, even levy infantry do a great job; i lost a siege battle only once and even then, i was able to exterminate every other company leaving only 2 shogitai companies which killed the remainder of my levies... an army of 20 companies containing levies, line infantry, melee infantry and cannons were nearly wiped out against my 7 levy infantry and 1 spear infatry garrison...

i want to know whether a siege battle can be won when the forces are of more or less equal strength? if so, how? from the attacker's point of view for sure

Tactics comrade, tactics.

I usually just beseige until they sully forth as to minimize casualties.

i agree with scenter if besigeing wait for them to sally forth if not in a hurry

if defending i find on normal i can hold a castle (in shoun 2 oriognal) against a force twice or three times the size and quality of my force(say one samurai equals 2 ashigura) i even once with 6 yari ashigura 3 bow ashigura and 1 smaurai retainers held out agaist a 20 strong army of smaurai with swords bows and genrals

and this my friends this is without guns(rubs hands toghether and laughs crazyly)
