For some reason the AI always seems to gang up on me in any dificulty. My latest game was on lvl Diety as the Japs. I expanded fast and had about 14 cities at 1200 AD. I went to war with India took 2 cities, and gave them a freebie peace treaty. Gondi being a big pussy was only annoyed at me and the rest of the world was polite. I was being a good guy and trading my technology as soon as i researched it so i would not be extorted, untill one round. The celts knew that I had a tech they didn't and demanded 100gp and Democracy. I of corse said no, wanting all the benefits of trading it. Long story short, the were able to get the entire world to declare war with me even though i had most all of them as trading partners or one time allies in a war with india, and the ironic thing was that india who was the most pissed at me declared war last and delt the final blow to my now weak northern flank. How would i be able to aviod these world wars that i do not start where i eventually have no allies. This is the third time this has happened 2 times with a world map and once with a random... and y didn't india declare war on me asap for revenge... the logic is messed (i run current PTW version) Forgot this, but i also had the highest culture with 3 of the top 5 cities and a majority of early/mid wonders.
