The number of wars has stayed about the same but most of the time they're now limited wars to gain control over resources, wealthy cities or choke points, rather than entirely wiping out a civ.

Pretty much the same. Though warring is more limited now. Rather than just conquering all you tend to set up more precise goals and stop when you have what you need. No more endless steamrolling.

I used to like declaring war on an enemy for something small then not stopping until they were defeated.

By "violent" I will take it as screaming and shouting at the screen, kicking your dog and barking at family and friends that you lost your axeman at 95% odds. Then yes, I broke a couple of keyboards already.

i voted the highest violent :) but id pick the SUPER war monger option if it were there. AI doesnt like me any more...

same here. only now Civ4 lets you see alot more governemt detail (actual numbers and figures about money and such) its easier to keep track, and more free time to plot a nice war or two.

personally i only really play civ becuase its historical, and room for lots of wars :D

Much, MUCH less until I get communism, the cost for maintaining all of that land is far too much without state property, until then I just pick on people very close to me with resources I need. But I build up military and keep it upgraded and run to communism ASAP, then I just steamroll everything like I did in civ3, but even more than in civ3 because AIs refuse to do anything useful for me, so I don't bother keeping friends that I can defeat anymore, I just assimilate them.

I find that the game does lend itself to a series of wars, starting at Axe rushes then moving on to Swords, Catapults, War Elephants...

I've had games where I won before Gunpowder...

I used to be a super builder. Now I build on the ashes of other civilizations.
Beautiful :goodjob:

Gotta agree with that. Shweeeet line! [pimp]


I started out warring more, but lately I'm trying to get back to making sandcastles instead of kicking over everyone else's. :D

I'm a little less violent. I feel the game is more fairly balanced between warmongers and builders, which is my preference.
