Worst=case scenario you could always drill and pin it so the walls don't bow, if that's what the issue is.

Yeah, it's a bummer. I haven't had any luck getting the Gatehouse to reform.

Yah, one of my gatehouses too. Practically unusable and I haven't been able to get it to reform.

My Gatehouse is perma-boned I think. Both sides are bowed in and it looks funny.

I finally got around to fixing all the busted magnets. Used a two-part epoxy so I'm hoping it sticks.

I've noticed some general wonkiness about the towers, but I'm making them work.

Small things like that do irritate me as there is no good reason for it.

While DF has top-notch customer service, this is an issue that I would be heavily surprised to be addressed. They would need to create new molds, produce, possibly paint, ship, and distribute pieces. It's a logistics and financial nightmare. Much better to find an alternative solution, like a preorder of fixed pieces at a discount. It's not good for the consumer, but DF is a small company and the castles KS was pretty tight from what I know from random quotes from Stefan and crew.
I am actually extremely surprised that they continue to sell "Arch Walls" without a warning. They are egregiously undersized. And not only are they selling them, but they also added them to the City Builder pieces on the website, thus actively marketing them with pieces they don't fit. And again, no mention of how they are not as long as they need to be to fit into the pillars.

I'm not sure how they ended up being not long enough to fit into the slots, but they leave an obvious crack.
Yeah, arch walls are kind of a bummer. Great piece that I picked up quite a few of, but not as nice as intended.

The small tower battlements don't align that well and the paint scheme is off but not something that is probably worth fixing. As stated the Pac-Man pieces are probably the worst offender.

Mainly the tower stairs are too tall and the pac man 3/4 circle floor doesn't have a square cutout section.
