    Catherine beat me to a natural wonder. so burned her city and built my own

    Attila called me a warmonger when he fights all the time too. so I surrounded his city and starved everyone to death

    Dido rejected me. so I sent her 1000 offensive text messages

    why so mean? they are just computers. they don't know what they are doing. :c5faith:

    Washington took an ancient ruin that I was right next to, so I cleansed his cities with atomic fire.

    Welcome to politics, my friend, where every action is driven by the leader's own agenda, ambition and fear that another leader will be ahead.
    Just business, nothing personal.

    Alexander had just denounced me, so I bought all the land around 2 of his units, and I forced the poor bastard to give me half of his money and all his luxury recourses just for an open borders treaty

    There was a spot where i wanted to settle a city, but Cathy settled there, so I made a new city and surrounded that city by buying tiles, after that I used every single great general I got to steal the territory, ended with her gifting me the city for free

    Theodora converted one of my cities with her GP. I told her to stop and she said no, muttering something about the one true faith.

    I burned her civilization to the ground and renamed Constantinople to Istanbul.

    China keeps insisting on settling near my capital. You think she would learn her lesson after I took three of her settlers and enslaved them to work in my cities. But nope...she just sent another one.

    Time to take him as well. And then send some camel archers and crossbowmen to properly introduce myself :mad:

    Cathy once stole my territory with GG, taking a crab tile...
    I spent a couple of nuclear missiles to "erase" her city whose borders allowed the GG to be planted and bought the tile back for myself :lol:

    She gave it to you for free? Never heard of that in Civ5.

    Well, one time me and my bro were playing Civ5 together, and we were on separate continents. Well, the Siamese, who were on my continent, settled on my bro's continent, and he didn't like it. One day I hear a terrible noise and I looked down at the mini-map to see an empty place were the Siamese colony used to be. :lol:

    ... in a setting that does not harm anyone.

    (just needed to complete the title).

    God forbid I had the powers of a civ gamer in a real world... let's just say that Earth's population wouldn't be 7 billion... :D.

    Thank Sid for that.

    The Inca, Spain, Indonesia, and the Shoshone got each their Great Prophet and converted all their cities back from my Orthodoxy into their own native religion's and the Inca was Naïve enough to dare send two Inti Prophets :aargh: to my lands. One caught by Barbarians used it for a holy site and then sent another. Thank god he feared my wrath and sent his prophet to India instead. But when the Atomic age comes in he will be in for a surprise :mwaha:

    I took Shaka's and Alexander's cities while they were too busy fighting against someone else, and liberated cities to wash my hands. The former, I had paid him to take on France, and the latter, I just took the opportunity of the chain denouncement and the following wars. After the Greek threat was gone, I even liberated Siam from extinction immediately after Poland took his last city. Now everybody sees me as the great hero, though if only they knew I was just one step closer to being world leader.

    I'm also willing to destroy Rome completely in my current game. Early wars with him pretty much sealed the deal for me.
