Ultimately, I feel the faction & dynasty system needs a huge boost to further distinguish everything (i.e. three bonuses for a faction + one negative, 4 or more bonuses for a dynasty + 1~2 negatives). That is, if such a thing is possible of course. I understand that a Carthaginian campaign is supposed to be challenging, yet I can't help but feel as if the current setup from CA does not truly reflect the reality of the situation, nor does it really give you that lip-biting moment at the start of a new campaign regarding which faction/dynasty to play. I fully understand the attitude of wanting a greater challenge, and some folks may not want that, but aside from the love of Hannibal Barca and wanting to role-play the game, I (and possibly others
) have to pay a STEEP price when other dynasties and factions are clearly "the better choice" due to positions, rosters, and bonuses.
