I did not see a thread dedicated to the Luchuirp, and because this is my current test, I had to ask, Why are they hated so much? No I have not taken the time to read the lore? But I have noticed, nearly every test, they are universally beat up on. I very rarely am Overly-Aggressive in my tests (only if opportunity has the door wide-open), so I know that is not the reason in this case as a human player. Yes my alignment is good, and though I have been borderline in strength, I have repulsed all the evil invasions. Now with both Barnaxus and Bambur as Heroes with Armies, even my best Neural neighbor has declared war. I have six civs at War with me One other who will most likely join the evil group and two far away "good" civs that are ok. I dont mind a good challenge, but man this is painful. perhaps a "nuetral" position could be available in some manner to lessen the pain of the dwarves???
