The Hittites are very strong. They get better chariots (5 attack instead of 4), they have all market upgrades, all government center upgrades, double catapult hit points, scythes with all armor and attack upgrades availible, etc...

Their only weaknesses are priests, which most don't bother with, and in iron on water. They also get a +5 range bonus on ships!

They are the king of unbalanced civs now, that's why people use them.

1. There's more than one way of bronzing fast, you may want to read Celestial Dawn's "crappy bronzing" article for one method... I think they have it here at AoEH, but I'm not sure.
2. The hittites have powerful chariot archers (+25% damage), catapults (double hps), and navy (+4 range). They also have a varied tech tree so they can counter most of their enemy's moves in some way or other.
3. Other good DM civs? Persian, choson, I hear greek isn't bad, egypt, carth, mace, babylon. Lots of people prefer RM though, the cost system that's supposed to keep things balanced doesn't really work as well in DM.

That's +4 range not +5, and they have some more important weaknesses than priests: lack of speed, no slingers, and no compies.
