    My first game on the new version and I'm playing deity Spain, almost every single civ in the game is declaring war on me in Medieval/Renaissance. I haven't started a single war in this game, and I'm not game leader in any demos, in fact I'm about 6-7 techs behind the pack. All four AIs on the other continent declared on me within a few turns of meeting me (even Siam and Netherlands who aren't usually aggro). The only AI penalty I see is 'religious differences strain your relationship' for a -40 hit (seems a bit excessive - having your own religion shouldn't mean everyone completely hates you). The only other thing I can think of is that I've settled pretty wide.

    Anyone else experiencing similar?

    Yes I think there are not enough dedicated wars and far too much dog piling for no reason or too cheap bribe wars.
    There are also a lot of nonsensical defensive pacts.

    The AI does tend to love or hate you. You get one DoF and then others follow or you don't and lots of players dislike you. The AI is pretty aggressive in general and as the human you will have the weakest army most of the time. It does sound like you are meeting the AIs pretty late, it is possible that meeting so late is causing them to not have a good relationship with you as well.

    I find that one deity AI will normally declare on you but it won't be all of them unless they are the more aggressive civs. It could be many different things causing it. It sounds like you are going religion pretty hard so a good way to make a friend is to spread your religion to someone who doesn't have one.

    Turn off bribed wars in to diplo options file in your core changes folder.

    The AI loves to do them currently, regardless if there is a benefit to them or not.

    With it off wars seem to decrease by 50%

    The file is in your mod folder, mine is located:

    C:\Users\emusk\Documents\My Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 5\MODS\(1) Community Patch\Core Files\Core Changes

    Your login name will replace "emusk"

    It's a file named DiploAIOptions.sql use any text editor including notepad to edit it.

    Inside you will find some various options you can change.

    To remove war bribes change

    SELECT 'DIPLOAI_DISABLE_WAR_BRIBES', '0';

    to

    SELECT 'DIPLOAI_DISABLE_WAR_BRIBES', '1';

    or

    SELECT 'DIPLOAI_DISABLE_WAR_BRIBES', '2';
