I purchased BNW before G&K, so have haven't played many G&K games. I decided to try a culture victory in GK just to see what it's like. I know it won't be peaceful. I haven't finished one yet (have several concurrent games going) but in all of them, one AI or another will declare war on me, and I fight them off until I have the upper hand, and they offer me a generous peace settlement. 40 or 50 turns later, they are back again and we have another war and I raze a couple of their crappy cities and they offer me all their gold and a few luxuries for peace. Next time they might offer me a really nice city. Rinse and repeat. In the first war they are usually stronger than me but my cities are fortified and I defend well. In subsequent wars, they will attack even if I have the stronger military. It's usually fairly profitable but it's getting annoying. What happens if I wipe them out? Will everybody hate me like in BNW, or does warmongering not matter much in GK? And what if they do hate me? There doesn't seem to be a world congress where they can punish me like BNW.
