    Situation: I'm at war with Egypt. It's my turn and I'm launching this turn's round of attacks. I gang up on an Egyptian Longswordsman and kill it. As soon as the longswordsman dies, the city-state of Yerevan declares war on me. I've never had that happen before in over a thousand hours of play. What triggered Yerevan's response? Egypt couldn't have bribed them; it was my turn. Yerevan was nowhere near the site of the battle. I had no troops stationed near it, so I wasn't trespassing. Relations were actually pretty good; my alliance with them had ended recently. Something relatively new in the game where taking a certain amount of opponents caused Yerevan to be disgusted with me?

    It was the OP's turn. I've had something similar happen to me. Whilst fighting someone I gift some gold to a CS to become my ally but the CS declares war on me. When I sue for peace the CS returns as my ally. Another bug I suspect.

    The fight caused an Egyptian general or admiral to spawn which fulfilled a quest.

    I once saw a city state overtake another city state. Then when i conquered the city state's (now consisting of 2 cities) capital. The 2nd city turned into ruins :(

    Oooooohhhh! :goodjob:

    The same thing happened to me once. My Galleas shot at Poland's Caravel, and suddenly Yerevan declared war on me! The explanation is that Poland just got a Great Admiral, fulfilling a city-state quest, pushing them over the top to become Yeravan's ally!

    Great very interesting post and answers.I was wondering to myself does the AI have quest too.Sometimes I think they won 't sell certain luxuries to me if they only have 1 left if they know I need it for a quest.But I guess I should of know they have quest too because when they beat me to a Wonder or to a Barb camp I see that they become allies with a certain CS.I get so engrossed in the game sometimes my brain cuts off a little ha ha.
