If you were to fill in a blank, that everyone could read in multiplayer or whatever, what is your stated agenda that is put on the table for everyone to see? Mine is: (Settler) Respects Civs who Settle often, Hates Civs who maintain 1-4 Cities and neglect expansion. Feels that such civilizations deserve to be wiped out and have already lost. Is greatly enraged by any player or AI who makes a Settler and sits there doing nothing with it throughout the game. Will immediately and completely wipe out any civilization who does this and has the gaul to denounce us. Yeah, in my recent Norway game France never settled more then 5 cities, two of which were razed by City States, and they had a Settler escort with a wounded heavy chariot that sat on the coast for 100+ turns doing nothing, not even healing itself, and the Settler does nothing. This AI behavior was so terrible it actually upsets and enrages me when I see this sort of thing happening, and I will inevitably eliminate them with a Colonial war later down the line, unless I am dead set on maintaining high diplomacy. But I just give up when it comes to diplomacy. In my Norway game I started on a small island with two other civilizations, both of whom I wiped out completely, and 20-30+ turns later (grievances dissolved) I start meeting new Civs and they are immediately unfriendly the next turn or even denounce me. So my note to the Devs is: You have completely ruined diplomacy, it isn't worth bothering with at all, and there is very little use for it anyway. Trading luxuries is far less important then in Civ 5, and trading away Votes can easily be done on the first turn you meet a new Civ, before they become unfriendly. So what's the point? I mean if you're going to screw it up this much... Norway converted a capital using an apostle later on and France declared a religious emergency. Three other Civs denounced me because this. So everything I do is wrong. God forbid I kill an early player who spawns on top of me. God forbid I convert someone else's city. If you're going to actually play the game, everyone will hate you, Just get used to it, crush and pillage all of them. They are worthless and friendship with them is useless.
