I watched in the War Academy and searched the forum. But I seem to fail finding a diplomacy guide. I play Civ4 for a long time now, but I never got higher than noble before watching TMIT videos and read forum guides. And I learned how important diplo is. I ignored it completely so far, never gave into demands and so on. I learned my lesson. But I want to understand it more generaly. What I expect is: * What are the personalities of the AI's? Who is a warmonger, who is a techmonger, who is a backstabber and so on. * How are the Diplo modifiers? I dont expect a exact number, but maybe a hint? What number of "+" do you need to get an AI to friendly? * Who declares on friendly? * What are the AI's faverite win strategies? I know, there are only culture and space really predictable amoung the AI, but I noticed that the AI hardly completely captures an enemy. But some AIs do quite well on waging war. * Whats up with defensive packts? Does it have an influence on the AI's decition who to attack? And if so, how strong can you rely on it?
