I just played a game in which I made a few defensive pacts (probably too many) and it got me into trouble. I was friends with pretty much everyone, but as it turns out, they weren't all friends among each other. At one point, one of my friends declared war on another one of my friends whom I had a defensive pact with. So naturally I automatically declared war on my friend. The problem is though, that I got a massive negative diplomatic bonus with all the civs in the game saying I declared war on someone I had previously made a declaration of friendship with. It seems to me that this should not be so. If I have a defensive pact with someone, anyone can see that I have that defensive pact, so the attacking civilization knows I have no choice but to declare war. In my opinion, the game should consider this as if the attacker declared war on the defender AND on all its defensive pact civs. Maybe this is just my opinion, but it felt really unfair in the game, so much so that I chose not to make any more defensive pacts afterwards. Is this just me? What do you guys think about this?
