Zero legitimacy, Republic tradition and religious unity really hurt. Until there is a clear statement that zero power projection won't hurt, it is hard to tell. The previous dev multiplayer session mentioned some negative effect for low power projection, but I'm not sure how far they tweak those number.Well there is this:
Or maybe you ask whether we must pick a rival or not, if what I take from this quote is right:
then the only penalty would be on power projection which as previous quote said wouldn't go below zero, so I don't think it will affect pacifist game...
I don't mind missing those bonus due to my pacifist playstyle, just don't put any penalty for it.Nobody to embargo! No enemy of my enemy is my friend relations bonus..., no missions to do stuff towards the rival...
(being pacifist and neutral isnt really a good option in a tough world)
