About bribed wars... I've been declared plenty by annoying opponents on a different continent because Pedro decided he needed some far away ally. Now out of the blue it's him who became world menace #1 despite abysmal scores. Maybe his other neighbour Gustavus decided to piss him off but I guess I can milk some money out of this... Spoiler : Edit: forget about it, I feel dirty. Reloading... Spoiler : There's something off in regard to trade deals, overvalueing a war (in which I could safely avoid committing any troops) and at the same time agree to sell your core cities (other, distant lesser cities showed as 'impossible'). Pretty fun unacceptable deal he accepted too.
