I'm not talking about Civs you play, but under AI control. Of course the losers tend to be AI civs that start next to me, but for the sake of discussion, let's discuss AI civs far away or on the other continents. I know the AI's can be weak as kittens, I'm mostly basing this on score and number of cities. I often discover that America is on top. Despite them not liking civs that declar wars on their own continent, I find they do it quite often (perhaps like in real life). At the very least they conquer city states, one game they conquered Germany. They seem to have no problem warring on their own continent. Hypocrites. Greece seems to do fairly well as well. Along with Aztecs. Aztecs can be surprisingly advanced technologically. Scythia also does very well. In my current game she has almost as many cities as me. She put the beatin' on in the other continent, over the Romans even (though she didn't get his capital). As for the losers it always seems to be Spain. Poor Spain. I almost feel sorry for him. I haven't seen him in too many games though.
