Could be Aztecs, Malians, Berbers, and Mayans

But could also be Burmese, Incas, Indians, Huns

Very strong also Ethiopians, Britons, Italians, Malay

Very good as well now Japanese, Vikings, Magyars, Slavs


Point is, people don't really know that and so far there is no clear top 4 civs as there used to be. Also depends a lot on your style/preferences.

My recommendation is to 1) look at expert games (like from KotD or just normal rated games) and see what civs they play and how and 2) try out what works for you

Id say aztecs, maya, malians, celts, malay. Aztecs are even stronger with WK and castle eagles, maybe except burmese no other civ can comeback from such bad positions as aztecs can with castle age 1tc play (and for burmese you need a castle). Maya because plums even with nerf are still incredibly good unit, great eco bonus, can play eagles aswell.. Malians because of how variable the civ is, having so many great units and amazing eco bonuses + it's one of the very few civs that can stop meso eagles. Celts, because they are still very strong, current meta (walls, maa + arch most games) suits them so well and the combo of woads, halbs, siege deals with everything + can stop meso aswell. Malay are still not played to the full potential, faster ups is so huge bonus, karambit are incredibly good at so many situations, gold free two handed is a win in any trash game and imo their eles with discount are the best ones.

Aren't Incas the perfect counter for Aztecs and Mayans? Slingers, when massed, can even fight Huskarls. Incas holding enough until Imperial Age(and they have plenty of options to do so), Slingers and 10 Pierce Armour EEW should do the job against the meso.

Id put aztec over incas in that matchup, because their eco bonuses are so much better, faster producing of units is another great advantage - aztecs can decide the game before imp. Ofc, eagles and slingers are tough to counter for aztec in imp. Maya are the perfect counter for inca, their eagles can take both good and bad fights vs slingers its very situational and mainly the xtra pierce armor doesn't matter for inca vs plums. Even vs normal imp eagles plums do (5+4) - (4+4) 1 dmg. However, elite plums have +1 bonus dmg so they do 1+1 dmg even to units like huskarls. And if you can mass plums, they're always better choice than 60hp eagles.
You can watch KotD games F1re vs Villese G1:

Pretty good game and in the end there was no way for Fire to stop plums (not to mention that it gets very gold ineffective later on).
