My Inevitable doom, It seems there are alliances all around me but no one wants me to join them. I have that feeling you get when you are the new kid at school and all the football players are pointing at you and laughing, my swirly will surely be coming soon. Sure they trade tech with me but is that because they want my cities nice for when they come in droves to oust me. I say “hey is there room in you alliance for one more…” And silence is all I get back. I will not go quietly into the night, I will rage against the dying of the light. Wow do I sound like jr high school drama student or what?
Ok Enough of this woe is me stuff,
Question is there a way to tell what alliance people have,? I remember in civ4 there was a chart that showed the relationships between rulers.
If you have an embassy with someone you can see their alliances and you get messages on tech trades etc.
Race to gunpowder and build lots of muskets, you will be fine
Maybe you can ally with us. After I give you a wedgie.
