    I hate:

    1) Vikings -- I invaded him with tanks and marines and his magical vikings (which he had close to 70 of) just try and storm me. Of course, many get slaughtered, but a few manage to kill my tanks

    2) Babylon -- If I go for an early conquest, i usually get bogged down by these guys attacking me

    3) Germany -- I try and kill him before he gets panzers, but he still is annoying as hell and a liar.

    The mongols really aren't a problem for me. They tend to be backwards and foolish, often declaring war on larger nations. I usually "help" them by taking the cities conquered by the larger nation, and thus split their empire and use the mongols as my lapdog.

    Not any civ in particular just closely allined civs. You go to war to quickly claim the oil they possess. Next turn the whole world is against you. Which is annoying without tanks.

    lately, the Indians have been sneak attacking me. They suddenly became gracious towards me after a particular trade, and a few turns later, i noticed a huge stack of war elephants approaching my borders.....

    mostly, i hate the zulus and most other civs with early UUs as i tend to keep my early game peaceful. Expansionist civs also piss me off, because their scouts always get to the goody huts right as my lowly warriors are about to...
    the french always end up being huge and powerful, too.

    when i first started playing i was always afraid of the japanese (don't ask me why), but since i started playing as them i haven't had a problem.

    i'm never afraid of the iroquois, zulu, or aztecs IN THE LATE GAME.... they're always backwards and friendly.

    Not really fear , but i know that in any game the "warmonger aggressive" civs will always backstab me or will try to create problem when i am in peace.

    So when i see that one of those civs is near my frontiers , i know that i will have to conquer a part of their territory or to have enough power to make them think before backstabbing ;)

    Usually , if you happen to have less power than those powermonger civs , you can be sure that they will ask tons of thing from you with a 100% certain war if you refuse.

    Not exactly the civ you like to have next to you if you are trying to play a peace game :)

    Zulu- these guys are pure evil

    Babylon-Even thou i have had no problem with the Babylonians I still fear them, when they’re in the game. They can be a threat because they could easily achieve a cultural win or the space race win ...if you don't take them out. These guys are my best civ and I choose them every time. So I really don't have a problem with them.

    Persia- ;)

    America- it's not that i fear them, but rather the polices of the bush administration :lol:

    Mongols- they attack when every thing is quite and peaceful.

    Well, in MP I fear whichever civ that my friend (who likes attacking anything that is within 5 tiles of his border) chooses.

    In SP I fear no one. (OK, that's due to the fact that I always play on Chieftain level and can wipe out anyone I bloody well feel like by the time I can build tanks, but that is beside the point -- in theory.)

    Hmmm . . . I think I know this friend, who hasn't quite learned that that dotted coloured line denotes your TERRITORY. He always claims every-bloody-thing as his terrotory, then even worse, backs up those claims with armies.

    I still hate the Carthaginians, Arabians, hmmm . . . and any other Civ that has a city in a city spot that I wanted.

    I hate any civ that comes sneaking into my borders with settlers and building cities behind my back while where I plan to expand towards. It makes it even worse if they're a civ with a powerful defensive unit at the time.

    Typically, though, when it comes to "playing" a civ, I just fool around with whoever's weakest and closest. Usually tends to be the Japanese or Mongolians. Sometimes the French, too, though.
