Thanks. Only a couple of years into the 1st Punic War, the long version as the Romans and I do not think that I have noticed too excessive use of Regional Decisions by the AI but going from memory, most turns show something. I will pay greater attention and if something seems not right, will post here.
Not RGD so much but the seem to be buying NM by invoking their gods a lot and appear to be spending EP's like a drunk spends cash at a bar. On the other hand I'm selling every prisoner I can get my shackles on but lack the EP's to play RGD's as desired. Not complaining as it forces me to plan and prioritize.
Hope this helps.
