Why should I care who conqueres me? Can't I just go on with this strategy and simply ignore who gets the taxes?
Yep. But if you establish a good relationship with your conquerer straight away, you may be able to arrange liberation rather than rebelling & facing a fight for your freedom. Plus if you let a noob conquer you odds are you will be liberated early doors when they get conquered, risking losing your built-up squads.
Ultimately it's up to you.
