Okay, to start off this isn't a rant, simply something I've noticed. In this game, as well as in vanilla; if you attack somebody, you'll be hated for the rest of the game. For instance, I captured the Aztecs and Indonesia before 1200 AD, but for the whole rest of the game; every civ hates me and declares war on me. I just think it's unrealistic. In WW2 Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. But do Americans still in this day hate the Japanese for it? No. In Colonial times, Britain ruled over the United States and lost to the United States. Do you still think Americans hold a grudge against Brits? No. So why in this game, should the AI declare war on you for something you did thousands of years ago; if in real life, it only takes about 50 or so years for forgiveness? Doesn't make sense to me. It's only really a problem though, because sometimes it can get hectic trying to fight off every Civ and city state at once. So do you guys agree or disagree? Should the player be penalized for something they did thousands of years ago or not?
