I find myself in the situation again where my best choice for expansion, there are only a few civs left, is to take out the small weak civ next to me. The only problem with this is that I like them. They've been friendly to me all game and were useful as when a larger civ was invading them I took the opportunity to wipe out the larger invading civ. Now it seems there's no real benefit to leaving them alone, far back in tech and power as they are, but I'm just having problems bringing myself to kill them. It just seems dishonorable somehow. It's not like there land would add that much, but mostly I just want some ally left. With them gone I'll be alone. Granted my civ would be bigger than the rest put together. So does anyone else run into problems bringing themselves to destroy a weaker friendly civ?
