Ten Ton Hammer has updated their Keeps & Sieges FAQ. Handing players tons of information about the best strategies for hurling large stones at opponent fortifications, here's some of what you'll find:
Q: What is the Keeps and Siege system in Warhammer Online?
A: Keeps and Siege content are props on a dynamic battlefield allowing players to participate in special type of Realm vs Realm (RvR) combat using systems similar to Dark Age of Camelot. As recently revealed in the February 2008 Newsletter, they are to help build a sense of pride in RvR and provide a focal point for combat. They are also intended to give players a visible goal and create a "flashpoint" where combat can quickly be found and enjoyed. It is a truly unique system that does not exist in most other MMOG's
Q: Do I have to participate? What happens if I don't?
A: As all Realm vs Realm combat, participating in a siege or defense of a Keep is entirely up to the player. While there are benefits to assisting in an attack or defense, players have no obligation to involve themselves in the combat. The only negative drawback is ownership of the Keeps will provide the occupants bonuses to zone control. Territorial control is one of the major goals of Warhammer Online.
