also guys you should look into dominion. Right now if just someone attack you (other player) and then become PC you dont have any option how to end a war .(in my game on day 3 just player sitting next to me send everything on me a went afk )
And the problem starts. you start to become more and more hated from other AI all start giving you embargo at first and then as you are not able to end war, new wars came. I playing just now a dominion round and from day 8 +- i have till now day 32 nonstop 5+ wars even if i end 1 war some pc declare war to me in few hours.
This is really not funny or enjoyable. You can be good as you want if you have no option to end a war and have 5 wars for 3 weeks and send more then 1/2 of army to protect a borders with pc which have only starting cities every single not good player can outplay you as you just dont have resources for fighting.
