- Civ V won't let me destroy other cities 2 answers
I surrounded Belgrade with crossbowman and unleashed fire every turn. Its health was near nothing, but my attempts to damage the city's defenses froze or something. When it says '-1' or '-3' usually, it now says nothing, yet I still fire (the whole fire-bolt animation).
I am fairly new at any Civ game, I bought it yesterday. Am I missing something? Why can't I capture the city?
