I usually play on continents map which provide a nice barrier to the AI. But I've decided to try my hand at fractal maps and a couple games now, the AI is able to just spam missionaries to the entire landmass and win a religious victory before I get even close to winning a science or culture victory. I know I can DoW and kick out the missionaries but what do you do when your cities are already converted and you've not founded a religion? Can I try to encourage a rival civ to spread their religion to me? If so, how? I know I could probably just try to conquer the offending civ before they win a religious victory but that is not always easy if they are far away from me on the map. Any thoughts? Thanks.
