Heh; I always play 30 players / hard AI / endyear 500 or 1000. And I
almost always win but sometimes I actually have to be halfway clever.
The AI is terrible at managing its civilian affairs (which usually
starts being necessary in the 1AD-500AD timeframe); it's mediocre at
fighting aggressive wars; it's not bad at defending itself; it's fairly
good at expanding into new territory (except for its propensity to build
new cities right next to enemy units).
These days I play against teams of 2 AIs each. Really the number of
teams doesn't matter; with more of them you just play them off against
each other more. Teams of 3 AIs each I cannot handle however (howitzers
against musketeers, not good).
