World first complete city capture in WAR

Euro Destruction faction downs the King.   

Massively reports that, over six months after the release of Warhammer Online, the first complete and legitimate sacking of a realm's capital city has taken place.

The Destruction faction on the European server, Karak Eight Peaks, successfully breached the Order capital of Altdorf on Sunday afternoon and progressed through all phases of city capture to the final encounter with Emperor Karl Franz.

After "many hours of wiping", according to a victorious forum post, the Third Realm guild alliance managed to defeat the King. He was caged for everyone in the Destruction faction to throw rotten foods at.

This is a world first for a complete city capture in Warhammer Online, without taking advantage of any bugs or exploits. The first, partially successful siege took place just weeks into the game's life, but was reportedly made possible by an exploit.
