    Something happened with this summer patch that "broke" AI diplomacy and this is another example. Currently the AI is placing an insanely high value on Joint Wars. This is on Deity difficulty. See 1st screenshot - it is only turn 47 and already on turn 28, he agreed to pay me 28 GPT +250 gold to go to joint war w/ Australia. I took the deal, never had a single combat, and made peace with Australia 10 turns later.


    Now he is out of cash, but he is willing to give me his only other CITY to go to joint war w/ Rome!


    I won my previous game just deal hopping w/ joint wars and not lifting a finger and getting rich. This is just broken and feels wrong. I understand that AI should sometimes be eager for JW and be willing to give some gold, but this is just plain too much. It was working fine before the patch.

    Devs - please notice and fix!


    You can also see from first screenshot how Egypt gave me their city in a peace deal after a very short war. I had no means to take her city because she has a Mariotti archer. I was expecting some gold for peace but not her only other city! It is just too easy. I cannot play this anymore because Deity is too easy with these bugs.

    I am a die hard Civ fan w/ almost 10,000 hours on Civ 5 and who knows how many tens of thousands of hours Civ 1-6 combined. I have been playing it since my early teens. Never before have I seen a patch/DLC with such serious game breaking bugs. Please hotfix immediately

    Yeah, this is actually really bad and I had the same experience. The AI willing to give up either a city OR all of its gold, gold per turn, and resources for a joint war. You can pretty much shop around joint wars and become crazy rich.

    Here was my screenshot around turn 50 where they offer me 45 gold per turn!:

    Yes thanks for piling on, I hope they take notice. I have stopped playing the game due to this because it is so severe. I have posted this everywhere I could, including official 2K bugs forum.

    Exploit...

    ...but in other news, for people who complain it's impossible to make an alliance since the Summer '17 patch, just offer a Joint War! :D

    Does anyone know if they are actually looking into these bugs? It's been weeks already.
