Heck building a starbase with only a cease fire order is off.You could be building starbases and all of a sudden declare war eating the ai.
They should include some sort of longer peace treaties.5mins before war?Thats crap.All those pacts wasted for 5 mins?
There should be a penalty for any breaks a player or the AI does.there should be a high cost for building a starbase on to allied territory.
Exactly. It should take MUCH longer befor you can go to war (after breaking a peace treaty OR cease fire). I was also thinking at least 5 minutes to give fair warning, not only 1:40 minutes! And there should be a substantial fee charged on the "go to war" option, which goes to directly to the other player.
When I've played unlocked teams online, I absolutely insist on full diplomacy (peace treaties, complete vision), or none at all. Backstabbing is far, far too prevalant. And if they try to build a starbase in my territory, it should be grounds for immediate war (and this should be free of penalties, from my side only), unless they allow me to reciprocate with starbases in his territory.
