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?
