Not all climate zones designed to be equal. Playing without food globals affects strategy so you have to come up with different one in the desert :)
On this topic: you made news posts when desert, grassland and jungle opened which said what was unique in those continents but not for the tundra, so can you post here what is unique to tundra like you did for other continents ? They sure aren't equal, like, tobacco is one of the best while camels die so easily and produce only 9 units, but it's interesting to adapt, plus if you can't have a global because it doesn't exist in your continent, fortunately your enemies also can't have it.
And by the way, you didn't make a "happy birthday totem tribe 2" news post since more than a year, maybe you should make one ? Sure there has been less new stuff and it will stay this way but it's better than no news at all, and it's not like you have nothing to say about the future: caves-like locations, german translation, mac port, space age eventually... and as usual make a recap of what has been done since last time, here mainly the russian translation which successfully did bring ton of new players to the game
In case you need it, it seems that the english word for what's happening to tt2 is "downshifting", I saw it on the blog of someone making card puzzles struggling to find enough sponsors and ended up making puzzles less often for that reason.
