Recently started this up again, and won a H/H Tosa short campaign handily, so I decided to try again except go for a Republican victory. I've lost 3 campaigns now.
I don't understand the decisions of the AI which seem to come totally out of the blue. Most of the time I'll he happily isolated building my infrastructure, getting ready for Realm Divide and such when *dun dun* enemy has declared war on you. Often this enemy is already in multiple wars in its homeland far away from me, yet for some reason it decides to land a full stack in my domain of all places. Once this happens all of my allies decide to backstab and pile driver me while in the meantime the original enemy's homelands are being demolished far far away. It makes no sense! Do you hate me so much that you can't even think of the thought of co-existing with me you idiot!!! Is this some kind of dumb migration mechanic that the AI uses when it thinks it's lost?
I noticed this seems to coincide with the time I get the 3rd tier of modernization. Does modernization or trade with the west trigger some kind of hidden AI hate modifier?
