In my last game I was condemned by practically everyone at one time or another. I had never fought ANY of them. As a matter of fact, the only factions I was next too were ARC and PA. I can kind of understand either of them condemning me , especially ARC because we were smack next to each other from the beginning. They literally landed right next to my explorer as he was doing an expedition. Of course they then accused me of searching for salvage in THEIR lands. My telling them to piss off probably is why we never really got along throughout the game. But that's the thing, huh? There's no way I would agree to not look for slavage and I think most of us would ignore the AI's request for that anyway. They say "Do I have to escalate this?" yet I've NEVER seen them do anything about it. Yep. Out of the blue the Asian lady contacts me to condemn me? Why? Affinity? Maybe. I dunno. (she was harmony I was Supremacy). But we were far apart and literally had only seen each others units once in 300 turns. It doesn't 'feel' right. Like earlier civ games where the AI would hate the human player just for being the human player. I think a little dialogue tweaking would help. If the AI had just said what the reason(s) were it'd feel sincere. Instead she's going to tell the world "my sins". What sins? I didn't attack ANYONE the entire game. I would like that. But then they'd have to attack me first. None of the AIs has attacked me yet. I'm surprised at that because there have been times when I had a pretty shabby military and they could have if not take me out completely, get some bases from me. I'm usually outgunned until midgame. Its the war thing that bothers me the most.. I rarely attack another civ for no reason....if I start a war its for land/resources, and in BE it's easy to get those things. I wish the 'warmonger' thing gave the player a small amount of leeway. I don't really know how at the moment but I'd like the ability to at least tell an AI that gets caught spying "This means war!" without a giant diplo hit. Apparently if I preemptively strike an obvious hostile civ I'm a big bad warlord.
