So, let's say I want to make your allies change side if you are doing too badly.

(set-stance soon_to_be_former_ally enemy)

Now, what criteria would you use to quantify doing badly? How would you implement it? Maybe a player score ratio or whatever, but I wouldn't know how to implement it.

Now, another question. If I wanted a player to declare another player enemy after some (some times not so) friendly fire, I would think that just saying

set-strategic-number sn-hits-before-alliance-change 5

or something like that would work. However, default value of sn-hits-before-alliance-change is 3, but in Attila 1 in AoC, Persians don't change stance with Scythians even when they are being attacked. Unless that number is changed in AI script.

For the first part, this would probably be similar to what people use in resign conditions. This is often having low villager and military pop and any enemy having a lot more military.

For the second, I don't think that strategic number actually works consistently (ever?). I haven't tested it. I think most scripters just change alliance whenever someone changes alliance against them.

(players-stance any-ally enemy) => (set-stance this-any-ally enemy)

RE 1: that makes sense. Maybe even 0 town centers.

RE 2: the situation here is a little complicated. I have 3 players, A, B and C. A and B are allied, B and C are allied. A and C are enemies.

A base is embedded in B base and needs to destroy B eventually, but I don't want A getting smart and start ground attacking B base. I could just use triggers and say 'too many B destroyed buildings=>change stance' BUT I don't want C accidentaly destroying B buildings with onagers and B declaring A enemy because of it.
