Here are the things in diplo I feel should be fixed. Its a short list and much of it is related, but it would make the game more enjoyable ( I enjoy this game quite a bit already). 1. Warmonger Hate I have no problem with hating warmongers, the problem is how it is decided. It appears that the AI decides I am a warmonger based on how many cities I take and not how many wars I declare. I should not be a warmonger if I am counterattacking after being declared on. Have the AI get angry at real warmongers, not successful war. 2. Have AI and player follow same rules Maybe I am wrong, but it seems I get the warmonger hate a lot faster than Civs that are actively declaring war on everyone. Then of course this leads to them ALL declaring war on me because I am a warmonger apparently. This may be because the AI very rarely takes cities, I can't tell for sure. This may be fixed with the first fix. 3. Have liberated Civs get huge diplo boost. If I liberate a civ, they will always automatically vote for me. However, they often seem to hate me. This seems counter intuitive. I think that if I liberate a civ, they should always be grateful to me, and not mock me. Hell maybe make them a permanent ally. I am not quite sure yet. But the thing I do know is it should be similar to colonies in cIV where they get a huge diplo bonus with me. I don't want civs hating me for liberating them. 4. Close Borders I don't think that close borders should instantly be a reason for war. Can you imagine if that was true? "Alright Canada, your borders are a bit too close, time to make you the 51st state!" I have no problem with them being uncomfortable with it, but if I am friendly with the nation, the close borders should not matter. If I am hostile with the nation the close proximity should matter more. 5. More "Hostile" I like when it shows me which civ is hostile, and I know that I can go to them and see if they call me friend, but wouldn't it be easier to have something that says friendly? At least give me a small indicator on the diplo screen so I don't have to waste my time checking each one. Especially with how fickle the AI is in changing its mind on you.
