    Hello,

    I have started to play Hotsteat games with my wife a few months (2) ago.
    I did not have any experience with civ5 MP before.

    I have noticed that the AI is not even close as agressive as in SP.
    We played several games is Immortal and even Deity level with no AI attack.
    AI is also Teamed in pairs.

    So I was thinking I go for sure and we started a games 2 vs 4 AI (teamed up) in Emparor, thinking it will be a suicidal but fun game.

    I have selected MOnty, Obu Naga, Ceasare, Askia to be sure of wars.

    WE both rexed and told them go GTFO when they complained.

    Still in 200 turns they did not attack, we getting to get ahead of them in Both tech and score.

    Is this something because of MP? Can if be changed?

    Thanks.

    <Row Name="MULTIPLAYER_HANDICAP">
    <Key>HANDICAP_PRINCE</Key>
    <Table>HandicapInfos</Table>
    </Row>

    This is what I have found in the GlobalDefines.XML.
    Is it applies to AIs? Because they might be more peaceful becouse the lack of happiness.

    checking out current game, I do not think so.
    With 10 happy I am only 5th even the computer have many cities.
    They still get the Chieftain bonus.

    Any toughs?

    I think it has something to do with overall MP, I think MP was designed to leave out AI (for.. some reason) do they even bother you with DoFs, or denoucements? Because in MP I've never encountered that.

    In hot seat the AI does initiate trade and also DOF, dennounce, complain just like in a single player. But does not seems to be attack. I actually had an ocasion when hwatha attached - 1 DOW in 4 games...

    Yes, they are still aggressive as SP, and it gets even more noticeable on Immortal/Deity

    They denounce and make friends regularly, that's how I got runaway Russia and her friend runaway America to DOW runaway France when nappy decided to bully me and my human pardner
