Ideologies, yes, WC was also better in civ V, you also had vassals in Civ V, also spionage i think is more satisfactory in V, and alliances were not as easy to get and as predictable as in VI. Also the AI was able to build empires and conquer them. Also not having diplomatic favour makes diplomacy better and more immersive. Also loyalty, agendas and casus belli may be a good idea, but are so badly implemented in VI that they barely make any difference for the AI. So the options of the player, and the choices were more significant in V. The game was also less repetitive. And the AI was more capable. Granted the game had problems too. But The point is that regarding war and diplomacy, VI is way worse than V in many ways for no reason, and has not improved it in any significant way. Now maybe im missing something, why do you say the diplomacy was 5 times more static in V?, cause all reasons I have seen so far point to the opposite conclusion.
