    If I ask an AI to jointly declare on a third party, what sort of Casus Belli is it?

    Formal War?
    Surprise War?
    The option with the lowest warmongering score?

    Is it different for me and the AI?

    Similarly, if I ask an AI to Join Ongoing War, which type of war declaration is triggered?

    Apologies if this has been answered previously - I searched and couldn't find the answer

    Is it Formal War for the AI as well? It seems to me I've been able to ask for a Joint War even if the AI hasn't denounced the victim, but I may be mistaken

    It is, and it doesn't require a denouncement.

    I do not know if the AI manages its Joint War, but you can manage your Casus Belli for going into a Joint War on the diplomacy screen. It is not always Formal War.

    It used to strictly be a "Formal War", but as of the Spring Update:

    Thanks! I must have missed that UI element. Nice to see this flexibility.

    Until now, to reduce warmongering penalties, I had been declaring war using a casus belli, then asking the AI to join in
