I get a perfectly wonderful, possibly even great start, but sure enough before I can get past turn 10, I have another civ breathing down my neck. It really is a fun-sucker to have deal with this over and over again just because I'm playing above King. I load a Huge map, I subtract two opponent civ's, and I trim the numbers of CS's from 18 to 12. These steps don't seem to be giving civ's more space. Has anyone figured out a loadout that will stop the madness? I know I can attack, or make a longer-term loyalty play against it, I know I could welcome the potential alliance, but these squeeze plays really kill my enjoyment when i find out that I'm in a squeeze play. It's a bummer.
