AI Lusitanian and ptolemai steamrolling other factions - possible fixes?
In most games i play, Lusitonian end up pushing carthage out of spain then proceed in literally steamrolling the Gauls; it probably has to do with spanish mines giving them huge amount of money each turns. Even once when the aedui conquered both the arverni and Sweboz, lusitonian still steamrolled them.
Ptolemai on the other hand are completely unnoposed and usually take advantage of the seleucid being at war on all front to steamroll them.
Very rarely, Carthago will conquer spain, and the seleucid will attack ptolemai first and win the war, but its very rare imo.
Have any idea about a way to work around this?
Things i have thought about:
- creating a land bridge at gibraltar since carthago barely send naval reinforcement in spain;
- removing hyerosalema/sidon and salamis from ptolemai rule and making them neutral;
- giving more starting settlements to saba in africa;
- giving all the north coast of anatolia to pontus as starting settlements;
