In my last game I had Siam, Huns, and Mongols all in my game. I was expecting heavy warfare against Attila and Genghis Khan while preserving the rare peaceful moment with Ramkhamhaeng. How wrong I was. For a peaceful looking guy like Ramkhamhaeng (I can't even get his name right, I'm ctrl-v his name now), he sure loves PISSING ME OFF. He loves setting settlers and sending them over to build cities either right next to my capital, or in the late game, DEEP IN MY EMPIRE. He'll just use the gaps between my borders to slip in his settler. Warning him not to settle next to my cities? No use. I captured his settler. Next time, he'll STILL do that. Finally I give up and let him build a city somewhere in a backwater position. And then he STOLE MY TECH. And he refused to apologize. DOW'ed again, he said that "ok then I'll take pleasure in destroying your Empire" lolwut? I first culture bombed him with a great musician and won the CV, but then continued playing until I wiped him off the planet with my huge navy and a nuke. On the other hand Attila and Khan were amazingly cooperative. Attila tried to settle next to my city once, I razed it immediately, and he gave me a peace treaty along with 45 GPT and turned back to Friendly. He sent out missionaries and great prophets around which I captured and destroyed and he STILL offered peace treaty and friendship. Khan was not bothering with me either, he was simply too busy killing CS with his navies. Both guys were Afraid of me by the end of the game. And the best thing was they both could be cheaply bribed (something like 45 gold +2 GPT + some horses) to attack Siam. Did I mention how much I hate Siam? I find it funny how some of the supposedly friendly opponents like Siam and William would almost always backstab you, while leaders that will naturally make you alarmed against such as Napoleon and Catherine are almost always very loyal and reliable. Yep, I had a game with William as my long term trade and OB parter and got backstabbed by him while Japan, Russia and France were friendly to me. They were all close neighbours.
