The drought event just sucks. If you don't randomly have 150 gold on hand, than later on -2 food on all farms and farms get pillaged. And those pillaged farms still get the minus food, so my flood plains now are as productive as tundra tiles. And farms without freshwater and adjuncy are worse than the base tile. It says one city, but it impacts tiles well into the next city, even ones the city couldn't possibly work. So now my game feels crippled, because my two major cities have utterly crippled growth and there is literally nothing to do about it. And it lasts ages.
