Diplomatic victory is the one I struggle most, I'd love some advice (immortal+). Everyone is constantly at war with me or brokering some, and I feel I just don't understand diplomatic penalties. I understand when you are close to winning, but I start gathering hatred shortly after founding WC, having a less than a third of the votes, clinging to three CS alliances, and being about the last in overall scoring. I feel I can take bigger science or tourism leads that wouldn't cause the same backlash. Passing quickly peace accords doesn't change anything, I'm in constant war, or defiance. I can easily defend, but no way to negotiate votes, no brokering wars, no DoF ever, and losing far away CS allies that you can't defend. Is a mostly peaceful diplo win even a thing in higher difficulties? It looks a much easier path would be a heavily militarized diplo win, having a huge army solely to defend your CS allies around the world. But when I'm in the mood for constant war, I'm very tempted to conquer some, if only to justify the cost of an army. So, how to not anger everyone? Is there a somehow peaceful way, with actual negotiation, or did I take too literally the "diplomatic" part of diplomatic victory?
