What's up with this? In the renaissance I caught Genghis spying on me, I told him to stop and he agreed, but later I caught him spying again on me, twice.
The opponent may be Genghis and maybe some people find this fun, but come on, we're playing a computer here. I'm more inclined to believe that this is a bug, as it happens very often with a lot of other civilizations as well.
I had Elizabeth, Napoleon, Caesar, Ghandi, Isabella, Boudica, Alexander and Dido all lie to me about spying and some of them were my friends (DoF) at the time. What is even the point of them promising not to do it again? This AI behaviour has now has lead me to believe that all AIs lie all the time and therefore I should just DoW and conquer them (if possible) as the only means to stopping their espionage (until the Great Firewall anyway - but who plays that long?). I don't find that one bit enjoyable or fun.
I think it is programmed to lie. Sad thing is a human lieing is strategy, but an AI lieing is lame randomness.
The AI is programmed to lie almost exclusively it seems, to the point that the only certain thing the AI will do is stab you in the back. Doesn't matter if they have been friends since the ancient era and you are in the modern ages, once they see a hole in your defenses, or sometimes even if they DON'T see a hole in your defenses and even state outright they're expecting to fail, MINE MINE MINE MINE MINE.
So what you're saying is diplomacy is still the same as in vanilla?
