  1. My tin foil hat might be a bit tight; Has anyone else noticed a big upswing in ammo rack detonations? It seems like every other game at the moment has some poor bastard losing his/her head

  2. I've been playing around with equipment for that tanks since the big shakeup. I've since settled on CVS + bounty optics + LNES + food + BIA + SS directive makes this an insanely good tank on open maps like Prok / fishermans bay / Mali / Muro. I really haven't missed the rammer or vents tbh. I've had more 8k+ spotting games in the last month than I have in the last year combined. Also, Fuck EBRs with a rusty rake.
  3. With a good (4.9ish skills) crew, turbo + improved vents + directive + rammer, throw coke into the mix and this tank is _really_ nice. The turbo makes a big difference imo to being able to contest positions as well as being able to run away when things go south. I've not noticed a big upswing in games won but the tank just feels that much more comfortable that it is back into the running for my favourite T10 med.
  4. This tank with a good crew / coke and optics + CVS + vents has been absurdly fun to play this patch.
  5. Er, are we just going to pretend this isn't happening? (Unless I've misread this, I read that its getting a gun depression buff)
  6. And abusing the corners of the square render box from the top of Prok hill.
  7. Is the T100lt really considered bad now? I know it is outclassed by that fucking wheeled piece of shit but it is still #2 in tier right?
  8. If they had planned, It wouldn't be a pandemic like this.
  9. To quote a smarter man than me, "Those that don't study history are doomed to repeat it. Those that do, are doomed to stand by helpless while everyone else repeats it."
  10. Granted, However there is still a lot of cases that have very mild symptoms that have not been tested and don't appear on the global statistics. IIRC It is implied that 80% of cases have mild to no symptoms. This represents a huge problem when the primary mechanic for tracking the outbreak revolves around tracing people once they become symptomatic. Look closely at the sub populations that invested in _massive_ testing regimes to get ahead of the bug. These sub populations will give a much closer representation of the big picture because they include more of the mild symptom cases. eg. The diamond princess has more or less run its course and that was ~1.8% mortality. I am going to be very curious about where NZ's numbers finally end up. They've implemented an early lock down as well as a pretty intensive testing regime. Granted its not perfect, but its a long way ahead of other commonwealth countries. I know this goes against most traditions of where larger sample sizes are better. But in this case, the greater population presents an incomplete picture. Make no mistake, This is a _very_ serious bug and deserves all of our respect. Traditionaly the bugs with lower morbidity can kill more people overall because as opposed to Ebola or MERS, its doesn't kill most of its hosts before they can spread it. I haven't gone into the local effects when medical capacity are overwhelms and the ~8 - 10% of hospital cases that would recover if they could get a bed suddenly become statistics, this may well account for the acute spikes in morbidity that we are seeing on a local level (Italy / NYC / Early Wuhan)
  11. That's a slight misnomer given that deaths happen a lot quicker in the evolution of the case than does recovery. So using the deaths:recovered ratio is never going to accurate while things are moving quickly. Off the top of my head I think the numbers are death is likely in the first 2 weeks while full recovery takes up to 6 weeks. Our resident medical experts can proabably shed more light onto this. IIRC the overall death rate is trending toward ~1% from expert opinion.
  12. Isn't that along a similar line to saying it was the concussion / fireball that flattened Hiroshima, not the nuclear bomb. footnote, What are you trying to achieve by pushing the "This isn't as serious as everyone is saying line."
  13. I get you, I think his point was that CO2 will be breathed out normally where as CO actually binds to a red blood cells haemoglobin receptors permanently thus meaning that red blood cell can no long transport oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body.
  14. https://imgur.com/gallery/CBPHDwP I've not looked to see if this is posted yet, apologies if it has.
  15. IIRC Ebola is the place in Africa where the virus was first noticed.
