2 player chaos

A 2 player challenge in chaos mode would be a lot of fun. Is there a way this can be enabled, at least for premium users?

Agreed - chaos is just too chaotic for my liking - espeically in ranked mode. But even unranked in 7-p mode, you're putting more time and effort into a game like that. To have your game undone by a freak storm in the Med, or a sudden surge in cockroach population in Smyrna, would be far less frustrating if it were just a 2-p friendly game... and those freak incidents are more likely to even themselves out, too!

I think there may be some confusion here. Just to be sure we know what is being discussed....

Chaos is a variant where all the starting positions are shuffled up. You might have your three starting units anywhere on the board.
Stuff Happens is the variant where things can happen at random during the game such as a Storm or Snow or (heaven forbid) Epidemic.

It isn't clear whether you are talking about Chaos as a two player variant or Stuff Happens :)

I am talking about the 2 player Chaos variant. I just really like the idea of 2 players each being given 3 random locations on the board (or 1 random location, even) to start from. Especially with Fog of War, where you don't know where your opponent is starting.
