So basically what I did here was exploring AIs main weaknesses. Watch if you want to learn them.
I killed her in about 11 min, with an extremely low score. Is this supposed to be an Hard AI?
If you are Zeus this is pretty easy to do:
You only need to do 3 things to mess up the AI:
Attack his 1st villager that went on gold.
He will pull him away from gold and will not gather gold from there anymore.
Bolt/kill his priest/scout.
You have to prevent him from scouting the map or atleast slow him down. He will not use his pharaoh to scout so don't worry if he is egyptian, however, if he is norse he will make a new scout.
Slow down/prevent his temple construction.
After making all of the above, its time to prevent him from making a temple.
Around 2:10 min a Hard AI will start making its temple, and you have to stop her from finishing it.
Let him build 50%~80% of the temple.
If he is greek/eggy he will imidiately delete his temple and start a new one.
Norse however, will attack your scout, so all you need to do is pull his Ulfsark to your base, and let him get killed.
Instead of writing that entire description you could've wrote just two words: early raid. Kills the hard AI every time; it can't seem to figure out how to defend against that. However, the Titan AI has the ridiculous +100% economy boost so it's really hard to execute this strategy against it because it advances and builds stuff so fast.

I can't believe you said such a thing, after you posted 'Total War Deathmatch'! I just explained what I did...
I have beaten Titan AI in 16 min with Loki.
Didn't really use this strategy tho.
This doesn't work vs Hades I guess. Thanks for watching. (^^,)

Haha yea invent00r you have a point. Sorry to be so cynical - BUT if you can do it on Titan, why not do that? Go big or go home baby!
BTW: The key points you have up there ARE very true. I just assumed that most people who use this site have figured out how to beat the hard AI, you know?
Nonetheless, in your words, "gg" haha.

ps. Do you think it's possible to beat three titan computers? I haven't given it a try yet. If you could do it I'd definitely be interested in the recgame. (If you're going to do it, it'd be nice to download the same map for continuity purposes) Do you think we could beat four?

haha Do you have any idea of what it takes to beat 2 Titans? ¬¬.
Titans are basically cheaters...
Ok, I will soon attempt to beat 2 Titans, then I might try 3. (Which I don't see myself accomplishing such a thing.)
