What is the significance of the spires? I get messages about spires taking damage, but haven't yet figured out why/if I should care.

Every spire you destroy adds 5 minutes to the game timer.
Destroying the spires gives the attackers more time.

I believe if you destroy the towers it become easier to capture a flag. If someone could clarify this I would be gratful.

Each destroyed Spire adds a few minutes to the battle timer. But to answer your question of if you should care, the answer is "probably not".If you're attacking, like stated, it'll take you very little time to set up the siege tanks, and once they're deployed they'll do their work without you having to control them. Once you get a kill, run around setting up the tanks, then go back to fighting.If you're defending, ignore the Spires completely. The fight will be longer, but it will almost definitely end in a loss if you try to kill the tanks. If defenders start leaving the fight to protect the Spires, those remaining at the bases will be overwhelmed and you lose.
