Imp K I like your fighting spirit as I know from other games, but this proposal refutes and undermines the whole idea of CIv4: any civ that conquers another civ's empires cities must redistribute them amongst remaining civs who had no involvement in the battle. That rewards non involvement. Note Kiwitt attacked empires conquered cities after an other civ did the hard work attacking. He calculated he would survive but had to retreat and use all his nuclear weaponry. So just get on playing US empire without referencing a defeated empire you were once master..
