    I was thinking to maybe play on three first, so I get a good look at the new system but its not too crazy. What are your thoughts?

    I watched Marbozir play a game as Maori with Level 4 Disaster Intensity. On turn 108 he only had 5 disasters in total; 1 drought, 2 floods and 2 tornadoes.

    If Firaxis don't increase the frequency of disasters i'll be picking Level 4 for sure.

    I enclosed the turn 108 screenshot below.

    As i recall that Island Plates map had very few Flood Plains, wide open land masses or Volcanoes. I think it was more of a nature of the chosen map then a disaster setting issue.

    Probably second lowest, but I may change my mind (several times) before Thursday. :p

    Either 2 or 3 is my guess. But I seriously hope they make it challenging.

    Crank the disasters to 11!

    The worst thing I've seen a disaster do in a youtube video is exterminate a 5 charge builder with a flood. Potato is not having much luck with Mali in his 2nd episode (lost petra, builder died, didn't make classical golden age, etc).

    2 or 3 probably. I'm going to try at least 1 game at full realism.

    Level 4.. otherwise i might miss out something. Anyways, game allows to protect yourself against negatives from disasters, by buildings, settling safe etc. It will occupy me in peacetime.

    I'll start with 2. But at some point I'll play at least 1game with it cranked up to 4.

    4-3-2-1---ZERO?

    For the very same reasons i eventually lost interest in grinding off Barbarians & gaining easy bonuses from Goodie/Huts... i'll most likely grow tired of various other randomized GS events except maybe Volcanic eruptions (GFX visuals). See -- i enjoy full control over my results.. good or bad. Heresy?! For me, Strategy in an intellectual challenge where MY own decisions dictate performance or failure instead of reactive luck(s).
    Soooooo.. a modder would have to create such optional settings for us; None or only certain types from clickable drop-down lists.

    Definitely going for the highest, and will settle close to volcanoes... I want to see exploding volcanoes competing with floods and hurricanes :D

    If it turns out the setting is too mild I'll definitely pick up a mod to increase it, or will look into modding it in.

    2 or 3, I think more disasters sound more fun but at the same time 2 is probably the most realistic and might be better for the first game at least. So maybe 2 the first time and 3/4 more frequently in later playthroughs for fun

    Yes having a flood take out the 5 charge builder was a stroke of bad luck. But losing Petra and the golden age were entirely self inflicted! :)
