  1. So I have been playing this over the past few weekends. The lag is worse now than ever. Sometimes it can be over 10 seconds where you cant do anything, then everything happens instantly. I was even killed by an Orc as I couldnt attack, but as soon as the lag ended there was a stream of red numbers and my morale just plummeted to 0. It is really annoying. I can only imagine how bad this could be in a raid.
  2. Scotland's CMO, who does the daily briefings telling people not to go out unless it is essential was caught at her holiday home yesterday with her husband, 3 kinds and the dog. https://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/news/5460581/coronavirus-scotland-catherine-calderwood-chief-medic-covid-19/?utm_medium=Social&utm_campaign=scottishsuntwitter&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1586033299 She claimed that they were just there to make sure the property was secure, and then they stayed the night. They were pictured out walking on the local golf course. How do these people expect to get the public to follow the rules when they wont.
  3. The US have over 250000 cases and almost 7000 deaths, South Korea has just over 10000 cases and less than 200 deaths. Both countries had their first confirmed cases on the same day, 17/01/2020.. The US has around 6 times the population of South Korea but over 25 times the number of cases and 25 times as many deaths. If only Trump had acted as fast as the Koreans did.
  4. So we now have over 1 million confirmed cases world wide and over 50000 deaths. It took less than a week to go from 500000 cases to a million.
  5. Trumps says he knows Seoul better than anyone then proceeds to say it has population of 38 million which is more than any US city. Seoul only has a population of around 10 million. Why does he persist in making up such bullshit numbers that can be so easily fact checked . Given that he does that all the time you can never trust any number he gives you. https://news.sky.com/story/trump-gets-seoul-population-wrong-by-28-million-after-boasting-he-knows-south-korea-better-than-anybody-11966163 He also said New York doesnt need 30000 ventilators https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/trump-coronavirus-ventilators-fox-news-hannity-covid-19-symptoms-a9429661.html The when asked about this, he said he didnt say it and has a go at the journalist He is a complete bellend
  6. Yet in February he claimed that the number of cases would drop to 0 in a few days. That is not taking this seriously. What did they do in February to plan for this virus. Why is there an issue with protective gear for health workers, even now.
  7. If anyone wants to help the fight against Covid 19 then you could join the folding at home program https://foldingathome.org/
  8. The UK lock down was announce last Friday, so it has been a week. South Korea has announced that they have more recovered than are still infected. They really seem to have got this under control by acting so quickly and doing mass testing https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/52075063
  9. so the Prime Minister and the Health Secretory have both tested positive and the the chief medical office is showing symptoms. This come the day after Prince Charles also tested positive. All are showing mild symptoms, yet all bar the CMO got tested when the are front line health care staff that still cant get tested. As long as their symptoms where only mild they should just have self isolated like anyone else would have to do.
  10. Of course more tests can mean more cases, but South Korea, is way ahead of the US in tests by way behind on positive cases as they acted much quicker then just about any other country. Germany is upping the number of test to 500000 a week, which will increase the number of confirmed cases there but I suspect by a lower percentage the the US, as they have around half the cases of the US and have already done much more tests, and are further along then the US in terms of how long the virus has been active in the country.
  11. Looks like the US has nearly as may cases as Italy, and it is doubling every 3-4 days. By Easter, the date Trumps hopes everything goes back to normal there could be over 500000 cases assuming they can test enough people
  12. Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar and National Geographic. Also lots of Fox stuff that Disney recently bought including 30 seasons of The Simpsons. No need to go out for months
  13. How many will be getting Disney + in the UK now that it has just launched.
  14. Given that people are not practicing social distancing, the videos of Richmond Park are ridiculous, it will get a lot worse.
  15. So given that we are all advised to stay in doors for the foreseeable future what TV show do people recommend. I havent added anything from Disney + as it doesnt launch in the till the 24th March Travelers - Netflix The Expanse - Amazon Picard - Amzon Star Trek - Netflix Smallville - Amazon Prime Still Game - Netflix Suits - Netflix
  16. It may be that some of them would have died this year anyway, but many would not have. The youngest death in the UK is currently 41. Younger people will die from this. Well the number who die each year will end up balancing out over the next couple of years, the NHS is struggling and it is only a matter of time before the staff start having to make the horrible decision of who to treat and who to just let die as the dont have the resources to treat everyone
  17. The UK is on track with Italy, yet there are people moaning about not being able to go for a pint.
  18. All Trump had to do was acknowledge that people as scared, but that everything that can be done is being done. If people listen to and follow the advise from the CDC then America will get through this and be stronger for it. It is an easy question to answer, and sound presidential. Instead he sounded like a dick
  19. What the actual fuck. People are scared, people are dying. Hes the President, he should be trying to reassure those that are scared, but instead he is attacking journalists for asking questions
  20. I have a weeks holiday, so I might play the latest expansion since I havent bought it
  21. Well this is a good idea in principle, it only helps out for a short time, many a month or 2. Also sending all those cheques out and thus having all those people going to the bank is not a great idea for slowing the spread
  22. Even in warmer climates it is still spreading, just look at Australia where temperatures are in the mid 20 C range. Also even if the warmer weather does help, the southern hemisphere is heading towards winter.
  23. Not saying it is true, just it would not surprise me. So the latest advise from Boris is to avoid unnecessary contact with other dont go to pubs, restaurants, cinema etc, yet the schools and universities are to stay open. How does this make any sense. The secondary school I went to has over 1500 pupils and is 1 or 3 that size where I live, surely this is a mass gathering.
  24. I wont not bee surprised to find out that it was his own business that would get the exclusive rights, so he can make a fortune off of it.
