    Interesting read on Sweden's unique approach to this thing. It's kind of working...Swedes pretty much practice social distancing all the time anyway, especially when the weather is bad (which is all year apart from July) https://foreignpolicy.com/2020/03/24/sweden-coronavirus-open-for-business/ My gym is still open; it's about a quarter full, but pretty much everything is going on as normal. Curious.

    This is why I'm nervous about ever dropping out of legends. Seems tough to get back

    Says there will only be 4 super troops, so I wonder if they'll use the less popular ones? Hoping the "power up" ability is more fun than game changing (remember the pumpkin head barbarians, for example). Itzu made an interesting point in a video the other day; he reckons TH13 is easier than TH11 was, and much easier than TH12. Might have a point; no siege machines, no yetis, only 3 heroes, one of which (warden) was distinctly pillow-fisted. Certainly the step from TH11 to 12 felt huge; the town hall fighting back was game changing; 12 to 13 felt like very little changed. My most reliable attack is still basically a TH10 strategy, just with higher level troops (and an ice golem thrown in the mix)

    Have you read about super troops yet? Call me cynical, but when it says you can buy them with "resources", what are the odds that those resources will be gems? Will be a disappointing route; not only do filthy gemmers get stuff quicker and have prettier clothes, they would now have access to better troops. Chewie will still only get 1 star though.

    Smh Don't make me quote your initial take mate. You were the original downplayer! We were both wrong. I haven't said it will be over by April for a while as it's patently spiralled out of control. Too little too late by our glorious leaders. I also think those numbers you posted a couple of days ago will be over-stated as some of the countries at the top end are flattening out a bit. We shall see.

    What do you mean the euro model? Virtually every European country (apart from apathetic Sweden) has gone into lockdown several weeks ago. No doubt I'll be accused of downplaying it again but people typically die 4 weeks after being exposed. Most of the major European hot spots went into lockdown less than 4 weeks ago, so of course the numbers continue to rise. However, they won't rise indefinitely. The new cases will start to flatten, and 2 weeks after that the deaths will flatten. It's bad but it's not the end of the world. USA is a different matter. Like i said before, your generally decentralised approach, focus on weird things and fragmented health care system all count against you. Add to that a leader who is more concerned about point scoring and at the moment you're on course to be hit way worse than anywhere else. Stay safe homies. And like Stanley says, don't start shooting each other!

    UK has gone as near a you can go into lock down, without calling it lock down. Basically you can only leave your house to buy food, or to exercise once per day on your own. Not surprising; apparently after they announced restrictions on Friday night, everyone went to the beach on the weekend because it was quite warm. That's maybe one other thing Sweden has going for it; the weather is still utter garbage so people aren't going out much anyway. Have they got full lock down over there yet? Your numbers are going crazy; expect you'll be number 2 within a couple of days and number 1 by the weekend in terms of number of cases.

    The numbers are still heavily in your favour though. That account is pretty shocking, but statistically it's extremely unlikely to hit someone healthy that badly. Meanwhile... Sweden still haven't even closed their schools or gyms. It's puzzling!

    Mate, to clarify, I do indeed recognise the seriousness of the situation for my American cousins. And i say that regretfully, and sincerely hope that my fora buddies and irl American friends come out of this okay. Your (as in USA in general) lack of cohesion, lack (so far) of decisive action, tendency towards self interest, complicated healthcare system plus high number of densely populated urban areas makes things very sticky over there, and in all likelihood, when the dust settles, there will be more dead Americans than any other nation . I was merely responding to what i thought was your view that i shouldn't be so personally complacent. That remains unchanged. You're right about me being a Chinese asset though. Gonna bring America down one fora at a time. Stay safe homie. I know you don't believe in him, but I'm saying a prayer or two to the big man for you and your family.

    I don't know how else to put it....you win if he gets corona virus (and become mod if he dies from it). I think you're muddling this with the general celebrity death pool.

    Not sure you've got your head round the rules yet mate!
  21. Obvious answer is a series of gauntlet matches. Let's say there were 8 WW matches that got cancelled; first two guys start, whoever's left standing takes on the next guy etc. etc. until there's one guy left. Everyone else gets cut and we go back to once per month ppv's of decent quality.

    Great thread. I have a decent shortlist of likely posters (including myself), but if I can choose one, I'm going to go with @MauroPedrosa. Rationale:- Lives in one of those European ****-hole countries (Portugal) Is a confirmed nose-picker Is a millenial with questionable facial hair, so probably has a weak immune system. Of course i don't wish this on poor Mauro, or anyone apart from @NoCakeForYaya for that matter.

    I'm far more likely to lose my ability to run 100 miles due to being hit by a truck than corona virus. Sure, there is always anecdotal evidence of some healthy guy's lungs getting annihilated by this thing, but there are also plenty of cases of super fit and healthy people dying on the spot from some weird and virtually unknown heart condition. I won't lose sleep over either. The stats are heavily in the favour of the fit and healthy. You will only get lasting damage from a serious/critical case. In the UK that rate is currently at 1% (and that excludes asymptomatic cases). In Sweden it's also 1%. Globally it's averaging out between 5-8%, but that's across ALL demographics. So sure, there is a chance that I might catch Corona, and there's a chance that if i do it might have long-term consequences. But it's extremely unlikely, and the chances are low enough I remain much more concerned about the impact on the weak and the vulnerable, plus the economy than my own lungs. Next couple of weeks will be quite interesting. In theory, the impact of the various lockdowns should see cases start to decrease within 14 days of them being implemented. Also interesting to see if China comes out of this thing completely, or if they get a second wave once life returns to normal. In the meantime, stockpiling toilet roll and bread probably isn't the best thing you can do with your life!
