Too much of a gap between hard AI and hardest

i recently played a few games with a friend against hard AI in a random black forest map with 300 max pop and everytime the ai managed to build up a decent economy but even after 1h30 to 2h00 they ended up with a largest army of 18-20 which is ridiculous compared to hardest which build a better economy and get an army of 160+ … i feel like hard AI should at least be able to pull out 100 troops after 2hours in a 300 max pop map. during early beta hard AI was fine but got changed during the last 2 weeks of beta i believe .
