Does this work in MP? I've not even tried it in SP before, but it probably would work much better against the AI, than against real people? Do nations get notifications everytime an act of espionage is performed against them? Do they always get told the nationality of the spy? If so then I'll just be inviting aggression when I start stealing techs and generally spending my espionage points on my neighbours and real people reactions will be to first try to subvert the espionage, and then when they realise they can't compete, to attack me. In the current MP game Im playing I got Tokugawa(Agg\Prot -_-, I am not a warmonger at all usually) and an average starting location, and I missed out on GW by 1 turn. I'm already behind in research and making a significant loss due to expnding too quickly to some islands to my north, which in hindsight won't pay for themselves at all for ages unless I manage to build the Colossus. So I thought I might try something different to see if I can keep up with others who have a better starting leader and a better starting location. What victory condition should I be aiming for with EE? Is the EE even possible if I don't really generate many Great Spies?
