    This entire ruckus seems so fake, so manufactured. Like we needed another 2010 crisis. Who knows what's going on behind the scenes and why a simple ARS is treated with more fear than Ebola(!).

    Because the death rate for cases with an outcome (patient died or recovered) is 9%, and it's roughly 1,000 times more infectious than SARS so spread is rapid. To make matters worse infected people can take weeks to show symptoms and are contagious the entire time so it's being spread by people who don't know they're a walking Typhoid Mary.
    Since when is it 9%? It is like 3-5%, probably something like 3.8%. Plus, afaik, it is actually less infectious than flu, but is more severe. Meaning 2x1 or 1x2, who cares. The part where incubating people are contagious is exactly what I'm talking about(it doesn't seem natural - at all). Seems like a botched attempt at using a biological weapon.

    Things have gotten much worse with the outbreak in Italy where almost half of patients are dying.

    Here is an up to date tracking site.


    11,428 deaths
    92,102 recovered
    103,530 completed case

    11,428 / 103,530 = 11% fatalities so it's actually gone up since the last time I checked.

    It's likely even worse, because China has lied since the beginning and their death rates are a fraction of Europe and the US.

    Deaths/Recovered by country
    Italy 4032/5129 44.5%
    US 275/147 65%
    Spain 1093/1588 41%





    Half of patients are not dying, stop spreading bullshit. You are taking "closed cases" data and using it incorrectly or knowingly spreading disinformation. There are like 50k infected in Italy and 4k something have died. That is the fact. And as this thing winds down the death rate is expected to be around 1-3% total (flu is 0.1% so this is bad enough). Bad enough, but not fking 50%. EBOLA IS 50%.

    This should be taken seriously but people like you spreading lies makes people think it is all bullshit. The truth is bad enough. 


    You can't look at the current total number of infected for a fast spreading slow acting virus. There are 3 times as many cases now as there were 2 weeks ago. When you consider that cases take 2-4 weeks from symptom onset to resolution you have to account for lag time.

    Most likely it's not going to stay at 40%+, but you can't just go "nah, it'll be fine!" The more seriously people take it, the less severe the results are going to be. In China it took completely shutting down infected areas and locking people in their homes for weeks to curb the epidemic. In the West we have idiots still going out to bars every night and taking vacations for Spring Break because they listen to people on the internet telling them it's not that bad. It would be nice if this ends up with a 1-3% mortality rate, but acting as if everything's going to be fine is irresponsible.

    The CDC estimated SARS would only be 4% and it ended up north of 10%. Same with Ebola, where the 2013 outbreak ended up at 70%.
    You're spreading misinformation, PERIOD. There likely 100x as many cases as what we know about since many only get cold symptoms, but we DO KNOW the deaths as they happen. Do the math clown. 

    I said we should it take it serious, I have not left my house in 8 days so I am doing my part. BUT we don't need clowns like you spreading misinformation by spreading 50% death rate bullshit. It simply is not true in any way, shape, or form. STOP. 

    There's no evidence to support what you're saying. South Korea has been doing mass testing but their deaths vs. total infections is the same as the US. If there were 100x as many minor cases that aren't reported/tested then South Korea's numbers would be massively inflated due to more widespread testing. They're not.
    I'm done with you. Spread any more misinformation to invoke fear and panic on this site and I am reporting you. Done.

    Stop watching CNN and wake up!  The slightly increased amount of deaths over the normal flu isn't any reason to completely shut down an entire country and risk crashing the economy.  It's the fearmongering and people like you who are causing the real problem.  

    If this is so bad why aren't countries like India where 25 million people live literally on top of each other all dying horrible COVID related deaths?

    10%+ of the people are dying......lol

    I'm back playing WAR: Return of Reckoning



    Thank you for reminding me this exists! Just downloaded. Feels so good to play my High Elf Bladmaster (or whatever it's called) again!

    Tried out a warrior priest first. I still honestly can't understand how some people play healers! I spend 80% of my time looking at health bars which just doesn't feel right to me, I miss out on so much! Its pretty easy to top the healing charts in a scenario, but I still don't feel like im making much of an impact. I'm hoping this changes as I continue to level up. 
    The whole point of the Warrior Priest class design is one of casually healing those around you as you bash the enemy with your hammer.

    I played one very early before the nerfs to the splash heals and I could bash a keep door and keep myself and everyone on the ram getting oil poured on us, alive with only the occasional direct heal to supplement.

    Even after they nerfed splash heals some and made attacks on doors not proc splash heals (the bastards! :)) they were never really meant to be played as direct healers with eyes glued on the UI health bars.

    The fun of the class is that you kill things and oh yeah, those around me survived too... cool!

    That's what im hoping for later on, at the moment I only have 2 HoTs and 1 direct heal, 1 morale heal and then some minor healing if I can hit stuff. So, not a huge amount when it comes to healing.

    Spoke to some people in game, and it sounds like WP in RoR is now the ultimate solo class, if you gear and spec for damage then the healing u get back from your attacks is really good, perfect for soloing. But, sounds like not the greatest class for warbands.


    I'll keep at it though, I've never played a healer before (well, not for long) as I always get bored pretty quickly. WP is different to traditional healers so it's holding my interest. What is amusing is I think the WP's legacy from live has meant loads of people play them, instead of other healers, so there are tons about. I certainly picked it as I remember them being OP during live!

    I just saw the White House press conference where they posted the numbers given by John Hopkins University of the number of cases versus the number of deaths in america of COVID.  32,000 cases, 400 deaths.  I'll let you do the math.

    Spolier alert: It's 1.2%..........

    And that 32,000 number is low because most people aren't tested.  So, really it's probably WAY lower than 1% death rate.

    Tell me again what the panic is and why the entire country is shutting down for something that is actually killing LESS people than the normal flu...?

    The reason they shutdown isn't because of the number of deaths. It is because of the danger of overwhelming the hospitals. In northern Italy if you have a heart attack they cannot send anyone to come for you anymore because they are overwhelmed. Normally that person with a heart attack would have a response within a time that could save their life. Now because of the dire situation caused by the number of cases flooding the hospital each day and the overworked hospital staff normal cases like this just go untreated. You can add that to the casualty of the corona virus. That is the real concern. Not the death toll from the virus or the percentage of death from this virus.

    When health services become completely overrun as they are in the North of Italy  normal cases like accidents, heart attacks and other life threatening cases aren't getting taken care of. The scarcity of ventilators means if a doctor has to choose between a 56 year and old and 86 year old the doctor has to pick the patient that has the best probability of survival. One doctor even said that in an interview that they were doing exactly that. No person would want those types of situations to be a deciding factor in their loved ones treatment.

    Do you understand the concept of an outcome?

    Let's make it really simple.

    You have 100 patients with the same illness.
    80 of them are still sick and could either die or recover
    10 of them have recovered and are not dead
    10 of them have died

    You don't know how many of the 80 will die or recover. They're an unknown and still at risk. They could all die or all recover; you don't know.

    You DO know the outcome of the 20 who are no longer sick. Of that group half are healthy and half are dead. Your mortality rate among known outcomes is 50%.

    What reason do you have to project that 100% of the 80 still sick are going to survive? And yes, what you're saying is 100% of that 80 are going to live when you calculate a mortality rate based on deaths vs total infected.

    Would you like an even simpler example?

    Your favorite sportsball team plays 100 games a season. They've played 20 so far and are 10-10 with 80 games left to play. Based on the outcomes so far, is it more accurate to estimate they're going to win 90 games or 50? Maybe they go on a tear, sign a free agent, get an injured player back, face an easier schedule or whatever and their record improves. Great, I'm rooting for them. All possibilities, but until that happens their record is what it is.

    Been playing Wolcen, cleared up to 111 Expedition so still lots of room to better my gear. I tried the demo for Trials of Mana, I have it on the wishlist. The battle system might get boring, I don't know yet, but I never played through the original so brand new story, and the graphics seem pretty good. Cute enemies lol

    That's what im hoping for later on, at the moment I only have 2 HoTs and 1 direct heal, 1 morale heal and then some minor healing if I can hit stuff. So, not a huge amount when it comes to healing.

    Spoke to some people in game, and it sounds like WP in RoR is now the ultimate solo class, if you gear and spec for damage then the healing u get back from your attacks is really good, perfect for soloing. But, sounds like not the greatest class for warbands.


    I'll keep at it though, I've never played a healer before (well, not for long) as I always get bored pretty quickly. WP is different to traditional healers so it's holding my interest. What is amusing is I think the WP's legacy from live has meant loads of people play them, instead of other healers, so there are tons about. I certainly picked it as I remember them being OP during live!
    It's one of my all time favorite MMO classes. Right up there with the Rift Chloromancer. There's something about splash healing off the damage you do that really appeals to me.

    My boy and I got through the storyline in Borderlands 1 and are now back to a little minecraft.  In my search for mods, as my boy likes mods, we came across an adventure mod called "Blockarina of Time" which is a Zelda remake in minecraft, It's pretty damned awesome and took the author like 5 or 7 years of work to do. 

    Was pretty rough at first getting through the deku tree as I am a minecraft noob until I learned you could shoot down (unlock) ladders with arrows and burn cobwebs with deku sticks!


    Walk through of deku tree, don't watch it all if you want to figure stuff out yourself, guy is pretty annoying but give you an idea how much effort was put into this.

    Playing GTA 5 story mode, since for some reason, I never played until a couple weeks ago. Also, playing EVE as my got-to MMO.

    Still yet to play the story mode, got GTA5 on the xbox and instantly took to the online, it was so much fun i couldn't stand the thought of "well i could be online instead of this".

    Finally it was released for a proper platform, PC, and was totally going to do story in all its glory on the only real platform, transfered my character off the console, and again Online is just too awesome comparatively.

    On both versions (console and pc) i made it just past the stolen boat scene and that was it ,online is just too damn good.

    I just saw the White House press conference where they posted the numbers given by John Hopkins University of the number of cases versus the number of deaths in america of COVID.  32,000 cases, 400 deaths.  I'll let you do the math.

    Spolier alert: It's 1.2%..........

    And that 32,000 number is low because most people aren't tested.  So, really it's probably WAY lower than 1% death rate.

    Tell me again what the panic is and why the entire country is shutting down for something that is actually killing LESS people than the normal flu...?

    Do you understand the concept of an outcome?

    Let's make it really simple.

    You have 100 patients with the same illness.
    80 of them are still sick and could either die or recover
    10 of them have recovered and are not dead
    10 of them have died

    You don't know how many of the 80 will die or recover. They're an unknown and still at risk. They could all die or all recover; you don't know.

    You DO know the outcome of the 20 who are no longer sick. Of that group half are healthy and half are dead. Your mortality rate among known outcomes is 50%.

    What reason do you have to project that 100% of the 80 still sick are going to survive? And yes, what you're saying is 100% of that 80 are going to live when you calculate a mortality rate based on deaths vs total infected.

    Would you like an even simpler example?

    Your favorite sportsball team plays 100 games a season. They've played 20 so far and are 10-10 with 80 games left to play. Based on the outcomes so far, is it more accurate to estimate they're going to win 90 games or 50? Maybe they go on a tear, sign a free agent, get an injured player back, face an easier schedule or whatever and their record improves. Great, I'm rooting for them. All possibilities, but until that happens their record is what it is.

    Not to derail the discussion, but using any data from China (or more accurately the CCP) really doesn't lend you any credibility. This is the same government which welded people into their homes, covered up the outbreak in the first place, murdered doctors who were 'whistleblowers', harvests organs from political dissidents, and is quite possibly killing citizens who are even suspected to be carrying the virus. Any data from them should be taken with about 15 tons of salt. I agree with what you're trying to say, but you should consider citing more reliable sources. 

    Unless of course you're one of the CCP's many internet propaganda agents, in which case carry on so you don't umm, 'regrettably perish from COVID-19 complications.'

    I've been grinding on Slay the Spire. It's become one of my favorite games of all time.

    I've also taken about 2 days to mod Skyrim SE with Darkladylexi's mod guide (it really has taken about 2 days worth of work). It looks to be running great and so am now about to jump in and fully commit to a character for the 5th time or so.

    I'm currently playing "Armchair Doctors, or the Wild Case of the Hong Kong Fluey.".

    It's more of a visual novel, but mostly text based. Involves the dramatic escapades of cooped up Tumblr and Twitter users from all sides of the political spectrum vying to prove they are the "right one" who knows everything all the others don't about viruses.

    It's rather silly, and pretty dry reading. I should give it a score of 1, but I gave it a score of 2. Only because it's a "novel" approach to gaming.
