    Just read this post in the 'Team Structure' thread:

    Espionage. I hadn't thought about that much as in single player I'm normally only doing espionage very defensively or just living with the consequences of poisoned water etc.

    That's because enemy AI pumps so much into espionage points. But in MP each EP will be worth more relatively speaking, so for those people with a lot of MP experience: does espionage factor much more in the game?

    Espionaze is not a valid strategy in multiplayer...you cannot depend on espionaze economy like in single player.

    First all the bonuses (same religion, open borders etc) do not apply most of the times..

    Second in multiplayer you want to be first in techs not steal them after someone has researched them.

    Third the risks involved with faile spy missions usually are not worth the investment

    Surely you can get points toward an opponent, spy on them, plan a city revolt combined with an attack, but that is pretty much it.
