In addition to cheating every ai faction pretty much turns against you, diplomacy is pretty much thrown out the window as no matter what they will never trade with you, honor alliances or accept deals no matter how benificial it is too both sides. You pretty much just get into conflict after conflict with no end, its really boring. I think after prince diffiiculty the ai just becomes intolerable.

At least Supreme Commander 2 (and 1?) explicitly stated that the AI cheats on harder difficulties lol. (Offtopic-ish yes) Heck, they even had a difficulty called "Cheating" where the AI is literally 2x more powerful, builds units x% faster, etc, aha. Yet the AI's tactics themselves don't really seem to change...just the number of units.

Same seems to be the case with Civ, no? Other than dishonouring alliances more often, refusing to trade, etc (as mentioned in a previous post) - they just seem to ... throw more units at you.

...or am I being ignorant/missing something?

They gain massive amounts of gold, production food... play on highest difficulty on a small map and bring up the trade in a few turns and see how little you got compared to the computers.
