I have been trying to break into playing at Deity level for the past few months with little success. My one victory was as Nebby in a science win. Over the past few weeks I have been playing as Poland on a fractal map. In general I get one end of the fractal landscape so I only have one or two nearby neighbors to deal with. I build enough of an army to keep the neighbors out of my back yard and focus on science. With Polands UA I get through Tradition and Rationalism pretty quickly and usually go Order unless some cultural AI is dominating in another tree. The problem is that about the time I get Satellites and am seriously working on my spaceship, there is a runaway civ either in culture or diplomacy who is able to win before I am done. I have tried to get nearby civs to declare war on them, but am not as successful at this as I have seen on Let's Play videos. How do you play peaceful and stop runaway civs?
