Hello everyone.
How is the takeover of the merchant alliance city going now? Alexandria, Venice, Lisbon, Bordeaux and Amsterdam? I can't find the NPC that takes bids. Perhaps the mechanics of capturing these cities is not the same as the others?
Share the information, please. Thanks

Those cities are not siege - able anymore
They have not been in a VERY long time ... I can only find one thread on it from 2015.

So the change probably happened back in 2014 with the Hurricane Island Mystery update.
But I do not remember an exact time.

**EDIT**

the 2014 (8 years ago) Major update was called Hurricane Island Mystery -  Sorry I forgot the word "Mystery" above (fixed now).
This update introduced Battled Forrest and Portobello Bay Instances.  This was also when a lot of NPCs disappeared (or stopped talking) and when EVERYONE had to fully download the game because so much changed - it was not just a patch it was pretty much a whole new game.

the update that introduced Hurricane Island December 2007 (15 years ago) was named "Doom Treasure"
the update after that that introduced the Hurricane Island instance June 2008 (14 years ago) was called "Colony Age".

As Ele said, they are no longer siegeable ever since they ditched the whole merchant alliance wars they had planned.

Unfortunately, the guilds that had one of those cities, still have them, giving them unfair advantage (they are receiving taxes from NPC's to guild funds).
