Quite difficult playing like this especially if you make it even harder by making all AI atrocity victims to yourself so you can't trade, will be under constant attack and you can forgot about ever being elected governor.
    Yeah, but this really changes the game in fundamental ways that take a lot of the fun out of it. One of the things I enjoy most is the diplomacy and gaining submissives. If the AI is that hostile to you, you cannot get them ever to surrender.

    For example, if I am Miriam and find myself next to the likes of LAL or Zak, I tend to immediately declare war and go after them until they surrender. I would rather not have to kill them off entirely.

    Also, without submissives or pact brothers, the game gets too unwieldly. You have to keep all the bases you conquer. This leads to a lot of time and overhead managing a very large empire. It is easier to play the game by giving bases away. arch+from+The+Empire+Strikes+Back.ogg&wiki=en
