Which do you prefer?

A) Rating and battling between extreme and fantasy climates that are either sparsely populated (Vostok), or could not exist in reality ("Ad" or "Everlasting Joy").

or

B) Rating and battling between "normal" climates that have substantial permanent populations that large numbers of "every day" people experience on a regular basis; (year round tropical hot and humid Bangkok, Chicago with its four seasons, mild and semi-arid San Diego, oceanic London, subarctic Moscow etc).

or

C) Battling between one extreme/fantasy climate and one "normal" climate such as "Ad" vs. New York City" or "Vostok" vs. Tokyo.

I'm very bored of the whole thing unless it's rating somewhere new and unusual (and real!), to be honest.

Normal climate battles are best thanks Also Moscow has a ''humid'' continental climate not subarctic one or less moscow magically became colder.

Rating normal climates. I don't mind if they are fictional as long as they are not stupid and beyond the realms of physical possibility.

It depends on my mood. Although I prefer real (and interesting) climates, I don't mind fictional ones provided they are at least plausible and/or some of the "quirks" are explained well (another planet, different axial tilt, different atmosphere etc...)

I prefer "normal" against x-treme or fictional x-treme cuz that way I can see how far the heat lovers and cold lovers or cold haters or heat haters would go to get their fix or avoid discomfort for them.

My faves were....Vostok vs San Diego..see far cold/ snow lovers would go for their winter...
Portland, OR vs Dallol...see how much heat lovers/ damp cold rain haters would go...
"Ad" vs Eureka, CA..see how far people would go for a sunny hot summer over a foggy,
chilly one....


I like fantasy climates...gotta encourage ppl to use their imagination so keep em coming!

Battling and Rating Normal climates... I find some of the extreme ones quite ridiculous...
