So I am signing a few defensive pacts in order to try to keep me safe. Then, everyone who used to be allies suddenly starts hating each other and BAM, a friend declares war on a city I have a defensive pact with and I get a diplomatic hit for declaring war on a person I had a defensive pact with. But I had absolutely no control over declaring war, and two turns later two peopled have DoWed. My economy is destroyed and I will most likely be crushed by people I was more or less okay with. All because I signed a defensive pact. I really hope this gets fixed in a patch at some point.
