From immortal U (the 2nd Sury one, as of this post current), spoilered in case you're playing that since it's late-game. Spoiler : What? I've seen this once or twice before, but WHY does this message appear in reference to capitulation? Nations far, far stronger than this asp-hat just ate it and became my vassals. In fact, one of my vassals wound up grabbing 3 of his cities while I only got 1 (he was a former vassal of my target until he broke free). I capped his MASTER, and his master's other vassal. He was either the weakest or possibly 2nd/3rd weakest civ on the planet...and my power was so huge by itself that I probably had over 6x this idiot's power. He was well below average power obviously, but then again this isn't that accursed "we're doing fine on our own" BS routine by the AI. It's something nonsensical instead. Why am I joking? Is it because you're already bending over too far, AI? Anyway, I won the game easily of course, but this made it annoying to finish domination so I took UN...hardly a big deal in a game where you have over 300 industrial units but still. I'm curious as the mechanics of this nonsense ---> since when did utterly bent over AIs just decide they don't wanna cap?
