A bitter rival just got UN: continue the war or make peace?

    I keep hearing about how devastatingly powerful the UN is in Civ 3, presumably because it allows diplomatic victory when you might not otherwise win. Well, my bitter rival - Babylon - just built it. He's ahead on points late in the game, and my only real hope of victory is to destroy him. :) I'm already at war, and slowly grinding him to a pulp; what are the consequences of being a "war monger" in the face of the beloved creator of the UN? :rolleyes:
    I'm thinking that continuing the war might not have such a huge impact, but my next move might: the old make-peace-regroup-then-declare-war tactic. Of course, I'd like to capture the city that created the UN, but it's way the hell at the end of his territory. Any advice would be appreciated!

    Get a Mutual Protection Pact with every civ that you can. That will do two things. This will stop the Babs from winning a UN election and give you time to deal with the UN on a more permanent basis. Get together a fast assault force to target his UN city. Capture it and raze it. The UN will never be a factor again. After this you can prosecute your agressive action however you wish.

    Excellent advice! :tank: He's already at war with all but one civ because of an earlier mutual protection pact, but it's best to continue them just to be sure.

    It's too bad naval units are so insanely slow....it's going to take me OVER FIVE YEARS to get my landing force from where it is now to where it needs to be!! :rolleyes:

    Anyway, thanks again!

    If you've got a good amount of fast units at the front, it's often faster to cut cross country. If you can put a healthy army unit on a stack you can have free reign across the enemy's territory. It won't attack something it has no chance against.
