  1. What do you mean, friend, are you saying Corona was the reason they needed 40,000 Urns in Wuhan?
  2. Well, I posted all of this in discord a while ago but it's been 3 weeks and I'm still sick. Haven't been able to get tested due to it being a mild case. I've only seldom had a fever and it never lasted long while I've had tightness to my chest and throat continuously as well as a cough. I've been out of breath before getting my laundry and once for an hour after rubbing one out [which was hilarious to me but I didn't tempt fate like that again LUL] then on another occasion when talking but that all went away in severity before the doctors office opened. I have no underlying medical conditions aside from an LDL of 120 back in October, which I've actively worked on since with a change of diet, and a Vitamin D deficiency which I take supplements for. Neither should really impact this. The last time I had anything respiratory was Bronchitis and that was over 10 years ago so aside from being fat (not obese though) I should be in good shape to eventually beat this thing. I'm keeping my parents in the dark about my being sick at all since due to the nature of my work (police department as support staff doing crime analysis) they were freaking out about me being exposed to it. Came down with symptoms on March 27th, assuming it was cleaning chemicals as any time I was exposed to them my chest bothered me but over my weekend, the 28/29, it became more pronounced and constant. Went to the doctor and was given a week off. My Week started April 4th but on the 6th I was formally supposed to start working from home which since I had neither a department laptop nor remote access token meant calling to say present for duty and getting a log number at the start of my shift then again at the end to say end of shift for another log number. It's the departments way of keeping people home as much as they could and reducing exposure since as of March 27th we had 5 people at my precinct confirmed and there were another 30 awaiting test results amounting to a third of our personnel while I took a bus to the subway for commuting every day. On the 27th I was up front and 2 more people were sent home with one having symptoms and another receiving a call that someone he lives with tested positive. Fast forward to the 8th of April and my boss told me the job got me a laptop so I can properly work from home but he instructed me not to go so long as I have symptoms and just to let him know. So as of now the plan is tomorrow to go back to the doctor and let them decide what I do, just go out sick or get the laptop.
  3. I should have been more clear I was speaking of its first use didn't have a political tone or message associated with it but was merely a specific reference to the virus and its place of origin. Political reasons came about later but also isn't from everyone that refers to it in such a manner.
  4. In 2015 WHO started moving away from naming things based off regions to avoid stigmatising those regions. In this case Trump was not the first one to use Wuhan or China to name this thing. It also didn't have a political tone of even keeping China accountable. Simply put a name or phrase is easier for people to remember than an abbreviation and a number. SARS is COVID-2. What about COVID-3, 4, 5 and so on? It's easy to get them mixed up and frankly, there have already been times where I got 19 mixed up thinking it was 18. I haven't forgotten it started in Wuhan however. I also don't forget or mix up Spanish Flu, Tanapox, West Nile Virus and so on.
  5. Buses and subway are largely empty. Going to and from work I hardly ever see more than half a dozen other people. Buses are boarding people through the back doors and not taking fares to protect drivers. I suspect the shut down on other things is helping but not enough. There were 3 days in which 911 calls related to Coronavirus stagnated then resumed their climb again. Too early to tell though and there's a number of things I can think of as to why the number of calls may not be particularly telling of anything.
  6. The problem is its hitting the health care system already. The hospital my sister works at isn't testing employees at the moment. They're completely out of masks being told to reuse them and using ones that don't even help. The ER is going to other departments for masks when they have 100 patients waiting to be seen and the National Guard is out front helping as best they can. The capacity of our health care system is going to start to decline severely now. Meanwhile 911 calls related to Corona have quadrupled in 8 or 9 days and I expect in another two or so days will be over 1,000 daily.
  7. So the news is doing a fairly good job of getting information out there but it's getting worse faster than they get the information and they're not getting everything. Hospitals are already in really bad shape and from what I'm being told, they're expecting a mass of staff to be infected. They're being ordered to work through it though unless the fever gets high because there's nothing else they can do.

    Just getting the thread started as I received this email: X4 Announcement Presentation live on Twitch https://www.twitch.tv/egosoftofficial Live on: Saturday 26th 15:00 CEST, 1PM GMT, 9AM EDT I won't be awake for it but I'll be looking into it after. hyped. I believe the company is one which can learn from a launch like Rebirth.
  9. Anyone else getting the feeling they're throwing all of the ideas for WoT 2 out there to test on this game?
  10. Simply pointing to a +1 max battle tier also does not prove it was given regular matchmaking nor does that chart mean anything at all. Those patch notes don't state anything about the Type 59, KV-5, Lowe nor the M6A2E1 being moved up to tier 9 which is on the chart. We know the Type 59 was introduced in patch 6.7. If you're going to assert the maximum battle tier increased in 7.1 means it saw tier 10 as a part of its ordinary matchmaker then the patch notes should also mention somewhere that its maximum battle tier was reduced by 1 at some point between then and now as we know at present it doesn't see tier 10.
  11. Nope, it existed at least as far back as 6.4: http://s126.photobucket.com/user/CaptKIng/media/MM_chart_64.jpg.html Found here: http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/26236-archived-player-questions-developer-answers/ Spoiler named TAGS: T34/T30, M36, server population, WOWP accounts, Patch 7.0, E-75 gun, tank profitability, E50 weapons
  12. Never had it on NA either so far as I can recall. Is it possible you faced tier 9 which got bumped to tier 10 (IS-4?) or that you guys had a regular matchmaking tank in a platoon with your 59?
  13. Problem is every time they look into a fix they instead look into completely changing mechanics all at once. Take a look at their premium ammo approach where they also tested entirely changing purposes of vehicles, their stats, and pen drop off at the same time as tinkering with the concept of premium ammo. It needlessly complicates the issue into being a bigger deal than it should be.
