I think vassals should band together against their mutal master too, in certain situations.I'd like to suggest that weaker AI be more willing to band together against the top AI. Currently, in an average game of 8 players, you'll normally have 1-3 top AI, and 5 other AI trying to butter up to the top AI. I don't like this. The bottom AI buttering up the top AI only make the strong stronger. A weak AI partnering with a stronger AI to take down a strong AI isn't desirable to me, because now the surviving strong AI just "wins more". If multiple weak AI band together to take down a stronger AI, this now leave more opportunity for a weak AI to rise up.
I think it would be better if the bottom 5 AI be more willing to band together. Either forming a coalition of 5, or several groups of 2-3. The idea is that instead of the world splitting into 2-3 groups in direct compeition, now you'll have 4-5 groups.
