Hi everybode, It was a long time since I posted here but recently I have started to play Civ again. From time to time I can see in the Notification Log (F7) and on the right side of the screen that the AI states ally with one or more CS. The strange thing is that during the same turn an AI state sometimes ally with a CS, bringing it in to a war, and then immediately stops being an ally with the CS. It looks like this in the log: Turn: 311 - Persia is no longer the Ally of Ragusa! Turn: 311 - Ragusa has declared war on Gandhi! Turn: 311 - Persia is now the Ally of Ragusa. All this happens during the same turn and I think you are supposed to read the log in the reverse order (from bottom to top). How is the AI able to ally with a CS during the same turn that it stops being an ally with the same CS? I have checked the CS info screen to see if somebody else got allied with it but it wasn't. Is the AI cheating in some way because I can't figured out how to do this by myself? If I could, this sometimes would be a good way to distract an AI assault when I'm not prepared.
