In Total War: Three Kingdoms, diplomacy has taken the form of negotiations – after selecting one of the options described above, the player receives information about the potential “cost” of this action. It is presented as a negative value – “-5”, “-10” or “-50”. If you want to carry out a specific action, you have to give something – offer compensation, make food, etc. – which, in turn, is a positive value for negotiations. To complete the action, it is necessary to reach a minimum of zero (the difference between the player`s proposals and the other group). If you exceed zero, you will be more likely to improve relations between political groups. The fourth distinct theme is exchange. You trade one good (grain, rice, iron, jade, silk, etc.) to get another from the other fraction – resulting in a significant increase in the gold you get on each train. This is also the most limited option – the number of exchange offers depends on the evolution of the faction (level, buildings built and positions assigned to the court). You can only exchange goods with fractions that you can access directly (their border is next to yours or if you can access them through the territory of a despicable). The game offers a considerable number of new diplomatic actions.
Diplomatic actions are divided into three categories: war and peace, trade and marriage, alliances and diplomatic treaties. Your Warlord now has a trustworthy rating that can increase and agree with your behavior, which influences how much a warlord respects you. Some acts are considered insidious. Trustworthy, a player is just a punishment. If, under certain circumstances, players break a diplomatic agreement with the AI, for example. B violate the peace treaty just after signing, the confidence meter of the fraction of players becomes treacherous. Traitor comes with heavy diplomatic penalties like -10 scores. Some diplomatic measures are unilateral, such as a declaration of war or the lifting of an alliance, while others must be agreed by both sides, such as trade agreements or alliances. A diplomatic offer may be accepted or refused directly, or a counter-offer may be made.
Breaking a diplomatic agreement can lead to a drop in attitude and less reliability – see below….
