    I'll preface this by saying that i love this game. I just finished my 2nd match, it has completely recaptured all the addictive fun i remember having as a kid the first time i loaded up civ2.

    ANYWAYS, this last game (playing as Japan) i got into a rather unwise and distant war with the Ottomans, my samurai pushed him back to his cities and liberated two of his cities back to my ally (Napoleon). At that point, Rome was making some aggressive moves, massing lots of troops on my borders, so i pulled back everything to defend against Caesar.

    I recognized that i could no longer afford war with Suleiman so i tried for a peace treaty several times over the next 7-8 turns, but he wouldn't hear of it. some 20 turns later, when i was neck deep in Legions fighting for my life and had almost completely forgotten about the Ottomans, he sends me a peace treaty offer in which he tried to give me EVERYTHING. If i had accepted it, he would have given me every one of his cities besides his capital, all his cash, all his resources (strategic and luxury), one way open borders... he offered me everything that one can give away through diplomacy... nearly 30 turns after i retreated back to the other side of the continent.

    i got a chuckle out of it, anyone else encounter any diplomatic weirdness?

    I got a similar peace offering but it was because I was about to wipe them off the map. I did notice however that it was WAY more than any civ would ever offer for peace in previous civs.

    I think there's a period of time where the AI is hard coded to not agree to a peace treaty. After that period is up, he'll practically kowtow to you if you've been beating on him.

    Honestly I don't see what the big deal about taking cities is so far, after I wipe out the field armies they tend to fall quite easily, even capitals.

    Some strange things i notticed in demo.

    1) When i played the demo Rome diddnt bould much forces. only one scout and a few spearman/warriors i beleave. Diddnt make much of a problem to conquer. (Playing on Prince level 1rst time)

    2)There is not much spoken word in the interaction betwean leaders. I hope the full game will be different. Why bother hiring 18 (19) actors if there issnt much spoken word.

    3) It is way to easy to gain a 1rst free city by conquering a city state. Just bould 4 units, attack in a smart way and uve got a nice city on a good spot, without losing units. It really pays out to be aggressive.
