Hello civfanatics, What do you think of the ability to select "ignore this request" when the AI asks you to stop settling near him, move your troops away from his borders, etc? I think, to me it seems very cheap. What is the point of the AI asking you to make a decision, "do i be honest and take a diplo hit now, or do I lie and take a diplo hit later?" if you can just select ignore and not have to face the consequence? Why is it optional to answer the AIs requests, then what is the point of them at all? If you are not forced to either declare war right now or position for a few turns but be a liar, where is the tension? Now you can just refuse to answer, get into position, and attack like they never asked you. Or am I misunderstand how this works? I know the AI would rather you promise to do as they wish and not lie about it, so by ignoring you are missing out some opportunity of positive modifiers maybe? Or what is the drawback? Do you agree this mechanic is good? In my opinion they could just as well remove the AI asking you for things at all if you can just ignore their request. Thanks for reading and let me know your opinion.
