So I tried yet another scenario, and here are some observations from my struggle against the Sertorians and Pontics (this is by far the hardest scenario!):
-The Galatian stack is badly lacking in CP, even without reinforcements they require 17 CP and only receive 12. Could they get another general?
-It seems that the option to assassinate Sertorius doesn't work. IIRC it's not even supposed to work instantly, but currently I get the impression that nothing happens with it. I've clicked on it 5 times now (had enough EP and money every time), yet never received any event text nor lost the resources.
-After the Spartacus revolt started in August 73 I was immediately hit with the event "Slave revolt expands", citing as reason my inactivity in crushing the revolt. That's a bit harsh, don't you think? And the gladiators seem *really* tough, I sent one proper legion and two provincials against the Spartacus stack, with roughly equal numbers, and ended up losing around 9k men to their 1k...
-Are the Mauretanians supposed to get activated at some point? Ditto for the Massilian fleet, Athenian auxilia and Sardis auxilia.
