In my most recent game, I went to war too soon with the incas, for no reasonable reason. Now they're at my doors, and I olny have numidians to defend my cities. I trust those guys totally, the only thing is, they'll trigger a GA when it's most unconvenient... except maybe for anarchy. I only have 5 cities, and none of them is larger than 5 citizens. And worse, I'm still in despotism. So my GA will be wasted I already abandoned one of my own cities, just to not let the enemy take it and not let numidians fight. So what would a more advanced player do? Would you let the GA happen even if it will be useless? Or you'd try to avoid it by any means until maybe republic?
