You have to make sure everything is ready before going out on the loot. The first thing you need to pay attention to is whether the survival parameters of the character you will assign are average or above average. The map displayed in preparation for looting shows secret passages and points / areas leading from the castle to the city. Although one of the passages appears at first, you will definitely find a way to open the other passages and you will be able to start the night elsewhere in the city.
Some places that were opened to other branches of the city during the looting process can be seen as closed due to the accumulation of debris as a result of trebussee attacks. As can often be seen in the areas you tour, there are many resources that can be collected in those regions. But first the passage needs to be cleaned. To open these closed roads, you need a shovel that can be crafted in the Workshop, used to lift large clumps of the city.
By the end of the night, the character you manage in the process of looting becomes easily noticeable to the enemies. The guards are soon sent to your location. In addition; If you spend a lot of time looting your character you manage, the survival parameters will drop pretty quickly. This, in turn, can cause the character to be tired and unable to escape from the guards.
Even if the nights pass, you should always be prepared for an enemy attack. You can use the quiet hours of the night to help the soldiers in your base, who will meet the enemy attacks.
You should always be ready for the worst: As the enemies prepare for the attack, you must help your soldiers to repel the attack through the character / characters you control. This help can sometimes be done through a meal, sometimes through broken armor or weapon repair. Even if you repel enemy attacks, your soldiers can be injured or killed, your base’s morale may be lowered, and your buildings and walls can be destroyed-damaged. Consider every possibility and strive to strategically process your materials.
There is a chance that the structures you build in enemy raids could be damaged by objects thrown by the enemy trebuchet. For this reason, structures need to be strategically placed. Buildings; It can be placed in areas protected by the thick walls of the basement, but since these areas are very limited, you have to decide which structures you want to build and protect first.

It should not be forgotten that the soldiers and farm animals in the bastion have survival parameters, just like the character / characters you control. When they are hungry and thirsty, they too can die. Having healthy farm animals will often be a useful return to the course of your game. Livestock can eat rotten food as well as animal feed prepared from two pieces of rotten food.
It is also necessary to mention two different types of water that you can collect from looting and various exploration: Clean water and dirty water.

You need to be a patient player, as you can see the positive or negative results of your preferences very quickly. There is an excessive and unnecessary assertive entrance animation for a game that has such a sedate and knows what it wants. While emphasizing that it is a “difficult” game, Siege Survival: We are generally optimistic about Gloria Victis. There are bugs that can be tolerated for a newly released game, that can be closed with minor updates, and we think they will be fixed. It was a very smart act to use the interactive visual novel technique to increase the striking power of the medieval-based story. They also overcame the translation requirement that came with using such a technique. The game has many language support, including a well-used Turkish. We appreciate and support the step taken by the developer and publisher team, while even the pioneers of the global gaming industry do not emphasize enough on this. If you want to try the game, there is currently a demo available on Steam. To download the demo from the Steam store you can click here.
