I just finished a cultural game as ghandi on diety. It was a tiny archipelago with 4 civs and 2 city states. I started the game to see how long I could last on diety with one city. My army Consisted of one warrior until i got to the medievel era. The AI never declared war on me. In fact when I asked Rome what it would give me for 1 silver they offered 5 horses, 5 iron, 2 coal, 1 uranium opened borders and some gold. At any point in the game any one of the nations could have crushed me but they never acted. I eventually built a modest defensive army but they still doubled it at least. I was always an era behind in tech as well. I won on turn 447 (after 2020 ad) by culture. Has anyone else experienced such passive AI on high difficulty? They practically subsidized my victory and made no attempt at anything but a time victory. I suppose a better test would be to try it on a pangea, I'll probably do that next.
