Best - Ethiopia. I don't get why people think they're weak. Neftenyas shred all other infantry units once they get the dumdum bullets card (including skirmishers and redcoats!) and even before that they're stronger than redcoats in small numbers despite only costing 20 coin. They do have problems countering artillery, as rotary cannons have short range and they don't have any really strong cavalry, but they're otherwise very strong.

Worst - Of the ones I've played, Serbia. No eco bonuses, setting fire to buildings is very rarely useful, no particularly strong units, and it's difficult to micromanage the economy.

I agree with the Ehtopians. They are my favorite. You mentioned the cav, that they are not really strong. But in my opinon the Oroman horseman are doing a very good job, but also the Escorts are strong with that range attack and bonus againts artillery. You get them to 47 dmg with 14 range and 2 times dmg againts artillery( and 3 times against handcav). This is strong.
A weakness from the ethopians ist the long building time for the units. You have to build a lot of building to get enough units in the fight. The eco is so strong (micro skills needes unfortunately) so that you are definetly fine with 70 settlers. So it is hard to react and to manage what unit you should build and mix. All in all I love this nation :)

With the serbians I also had problems, because I needed to much space with the fields, cause the need to grow when they were build. Also a little bit complex that you can't see your upgrade posibilites, so you have to know all and decide what you gonna use and what building you have to have.

I don't hate any faction except the Ethiopians (dependent of Export which is always missing, having a weak wall (I need a strong wall!) and weak soldiers... and their HC apportionment is so bad!) but I love Habsburgs. You just have mercenaries! Instead of 5 Musketeers you get 5 Pandurs in Age 2 for example, and I never got problems with my economy although my soldiers were expensive! Moreover, you are able to build infinte schlossen and you can get an extremely strong wall! My strategy with the Habsburgs is to build a wall, fortify it, and put 5 demicannons on the strategic places. No struggle.

From my new experience and with info from people I know, Here are the countries SO FAR, that are good....
French- Just strong in general, have a solid card deck
Greek- Good troops, Will just BOOM if playing on water maps
Bulgarians- They do get troops before age 4, it's just not official (*Infinite Cards),Star Forts, Strong Vills, And FILTHY amount of XP through cards, plus very survivable since almost any builing trains vills
Egypt- Just excellent for Trolling :), very transportational, and are impossible to trace if constantly moving.

So So empires
Columbia- Played with them, they good but it takes some time to start generating good food. Can't get more Independistas until level 25 card. Weak Walls
Sioux- Literally the only thing is lack of busting through walls and the inability to build them

The hmmmmmm..... Countries... (Depends on difficulty of Country, or just the overall state of it....SO FAR.)
America- Not my opinion, but claimed to be difficult for new players
Italy- Weak troops, the whole merchant and architect thing.

I disagree with some things. However, I strongly belief you are wrong about the Sioux. Their units get so high siege damage that all of them are good at busting through walls. Only time where this wouldn't be true, is in a typical treaty game where millions of troops are stationed behind the walls.

I think the only thing we can take from David's post is that he plays defensive all the time every time

That's not exactly true Mr.Hoop, these are just some opinions about the empires that not all come from me, but also of the people surrounding me. Personally, One of my most 3 used empires used to be the Sioux, and from experience, I can say that 10-15 canyons behind the walls are very hard to go against. Plus the.....IDK....60 Halberdiers that take out the cavalry. I might not be the local 2nd age Town Raider, But I am definetily not Your behind the wall defense with cannons man either. So please don't assume.

As far as worst/best my only gauge for measuring is playing expert AI with my friend, so I'm kind of limited in scope. That being said, my top 3 civs to play (in this order) are: Australians, Colombians, Russians. Honorable mentions in terms of flavor are: Zulu and Americans and Canadians. My least favorite to play have been the Egyptians, Ethiopians, but I really don't have strong feelings about it.
