Hi. I played a whole lot of GalCiv 2 in the past and have now jumped in on GalCiv 3 to see what's going on in the galaxy.
I've been playing a game as the Yor, and the Iconians keep going through the same pointless cycle:
1. They declare war.
2. Sometimes I see one of their ships flying near one of my planets. It is a medium size ship, quite a bit stronger than my small ships. It never attacks, and after a couple of turns, flies away.
3. Six to eight turns later, the Iconians ask for peace and I accept.
A dozen or so turns later, they declare war again and the same cycle repeats. It's now gotten quite annoying.
What's the point of declaring war if they aren't going to attack?
