With State of Emergency right around the corner, let's give this poll a try. When rating keep in mind 0 stars being least challenging and 3 being the most challenging

I should have also mentioned in the poll, it assumes no Quarintine Markers, random teams, and getting past the learning curve.

Let's also assume a 3 person team... I think the non-lab challenges are easier with 2, but the lab challenge is easier with 4.

Poll
Rate the difficulty of the challenges assuming you're using 5 epidemics.
  0 Stars 1 Star 2 Stars 3 Stars
+1 Epidemic (6 instead of 5)
+2 Epidemics (7 instead of 5)
Bioterrorist Challenge
Virulent Strain Challenge
Normal Mutation Challenge
Lab Challenge
Worldwide Panic Mutation
Hinterlands Challenge
Emergency Events
Superbug Challenge
No Event Challenge (variant)

Having a random team makes it very difficult to rate as the difference between the character sets is huge.
Will have to have a good think

Sorry, 0 stars being least challenging and 3 being the most challenging. I will update the first post.

This is tricky to rate ... Not only was it a long time since I played a standard game with five Epidemic cards, it's a long time since I didn't play with at least two added challenges. Also, >90% of the games with two or four players.
Interestingly enough though, our perhaps closest attempt at surviving the combination of Virulent Strain, Worldwide Panic and Lab Challenge with four Epidemic cards, was made by only two players. I'd say it depends on the combination of roles, but four players isn't necessarily always better for Lab Challenge.
