I play on Immortal, and I like to play Small Continent, Huge map with 12 civs. So usually I am found on a continent with 3-4 other civs, with quite a few unmet civilizations. If I completely eliminate the civs nearby, before I even meet a civilization from the other side of the globe, will I get a diplo hit? i.e. Will Genghis Khan from the other continent hate me on the first day we meet? The same goes for DoW. If I DoW too much, I will be seen as a warmonger. But will the effect register for unmet civilizations? I like to war in the classical/medieval era, before meeting distant civlizations. So far I have been refraining from DoW (I let others declare on me), and I refrain from attacking an opponent's last city (saving the last city). Can anybody answer my question? Thanks in advance. It'd be nice to know that I can DoW 7 times without suffering a penalty from distant civilizations. I want to be able to sell luxuries to distant friends.
