Both climates have the same maximums and minimums. Every other statistic is different, this means the results aren't just divided by hot lovers or cold lovers. But by people sacrificing perhaps sun for rain/clouds or heat for better summer minimum (more reliable).

Climate A- Drizzle: A fairly warm oceanic climate, with summers and winters of relatively equal length. It usually stays mild but there is little variation throughout the year, heatwaves are rarer than Climate B. Rainfall is very well distributed with a dip in Spring and a peak in Autumn. Almost every day has rain but it's usually drizzle or a few showers. Clouds can be problem but unlike some other oceanic climates, there's usually 1-2 hours of sunlight/day and only 20-30 day/year when there is no sunlight recorded- most of that in winter and early spring. Humidity in summer can also make it feel warmer than it really is, the average humidity when the temperature reaches it's average maximum (24˚C) in July/August is 75% with a night average humidity of 95%.

Climate B- Mild T-Storm: This climate has much less rainfall and the possibility of cooler temps on winter nights. Unfortunately as it's drier there should be cooler nights but for mysterious circumstances (both climates have to have the same max and min stats ) average winter lows are 6˚C, no snow. It is fairly sunny in all seasons and especially spring and summer. Humidity is lower than Climate A and in winter is can be quite windy, yet there is still no snow. The major downfalls is that this climate has the potential to have a more continental climate yet "mysteriously" doesn't. Still summer can have its heatwaves and winter can have cold waves. Rainfall is sporadic and comes from occasional cold fronts in winter and semi-convectional storms and showers in summer.

Climate A: C-, a typical oceanic climate but pleasant summers even for me, liveable.
Climate B: C, dry and mild, it doesn't live up to its potential as a very hot summer climate, but better as there is lower rainfall (than Climate A) and a higher chance of 35˚C+ in summer.

I choose climate A due to the evenly spread precipitation even though the dry season is in spring and even though it doesn't really get thunderstorms.

Climate B for more sunshine and less rain.
