    There is a huge risk in rushing OUT of a lock down. Ok infections may drop off during the course a lock down BUT given commentary that there could be significant numbers of asymptomatic carriers then rushing out of a lock down before theyre identified isolated and treated just begs the whole cycle to start again. Current testing kits are few and far between and atm rely on a cumbersome and time consuming process for analysis. The new South Korean and even UK kits offer a distinct possability that testing can be sped up, but the problem will be manufactuering capacity. If we can procure enough on teh open market Im hoping that someones talking licensing and local manufcaturing.

    working from home

    So my wife working from home day 3 is going AWESOMELY !!!!! Yesterday Im banished to my office at the other end of the house cause im apparently to noisy and distracting for her work environment... TODAY its "honey we need a new printer cause your old one doesnt scan and I need to scan for work".. so off to Office Works on "essential Business" I am dragged... said new printer is brought home where my youngest son and I spend a wonderful 30 mins of father son pandemic bonding time setting it up, connecting to wireless networks, making sure her work laptop etc is connecting and printing ( thank gawd for rum) So all afternoon Im enjoying the lovely hum of said new printer and regular visits from my wonderful darling wife every few mins collecting printouts (thank gawd I dont have pornhub open).. inevitably some scanning needs to be done "honey can you set up my lap top so I can use the new scanner" so off i toddles for more unpaid personalised IT support work only to find her laptop is admin locked and drivers for scanning cant be installed by me .. "honey... (eye lids fluttering coyly) I need to get these docs scanned urgently.." "sigh yes darling" .. so drivers get installed onto MY Gaming Rig (yay more unpaid IT support work ) which invariably sees me kicked off my PC (after more personalised and free IT Support to assist her in learning how the scanner works )... As said scanning is being done "honey I dont like your keyboard ..." (mutter grumble mutter works fine for my fat fingers ) " BUT i LOVE your dual monitor set up... maybe I should kick you out and use your office instead of timmies ......" Thank gawd we have rum
  5. @Dano07 ummm youve NEVER played a CV have you.... so you have absolutely no idea the level of work and skill a good CV driver NOW needs in order to get a half decent score and or be considered helpful to his team. Sure guys like @drakon233 will rack up good scores all day every day ( but tbh he is a freak who will rack up decent scores in ANYTHING you put him in ... love ya handy work btw @drakon233 specially when you are on my team lol ) but then you get guys like me who can go from 150K+ in a CV in 1 battle down to 30K in the very next battle.) Also candidly tbh looking at your overall stats for what you do play ... as a personal opinion i'd say the problem ISNT CV's on the enemy team but rather your play style.
  6. @Dano07 i play both CV and DD and tbh I dont have an issue as a DD player with CV... simple trick, turn you AA off for starters so it makes it harder for CV to find u... secondly alter your play style to suit

    Ive parked mine up for random battles... you have to brawl in her and 99% of the time you'll get no support form your team, focused by the enemy and be out of the game quickly (albiet with some very good damage scores) so I mainly save mine now for CB

    How is your British CA event going?

    not a single ship so far for me 😞
  10. got to love playing CV... do your job and the enemy team reports you... dont do your job and your team reports you...... I get it you dont like CV but abusing the reporting system in this fashion just cause you died .... sigh

    Quick Poll

    What do we as players want .... ???
  12. Did I miss something in the 9.0 patch notes... is WG handing out new rewards or objectives for back of map play ??? I have to ask cause it seems that since 9.0 came out thats ALL that occurs with my teams... spawn... run str8 to back of map..die ....and not just a player here and there but nearly whole damm teams .. personal scores are holding up but WR is tanking hard.... so are there new rewards being handed out for that, has game objectives changed or is it just MM is screwing with me

    This game is dying

    WG care factor = zero
  14. Its time to address that big fat elephant in the room... the broken match maker. Below is a screenshot of a recent game and as can be seen MM set up the other team as nothing but mere cannon fodder for my team. Under NO possible scenario can this be percieved as balanced and this type of MM imbalanced crops up on an average ratio of 1:3 games. Now ok sometimes your on the good team sometimes the bad so you can think it evens out but fundamentally these types of MM just shouldnt be occuring so as a New Years Resolution can we PLEASE get WG to address the MM algorithm issues and provide us with a more fair and balanced MM system. ps... as a side note once my team realised just how imbalanced the teams were we actually backed off somewhat to allow the enemy a chance to rack up some points so cudos to the players and clans that were represented on my team for their sense of fair play and sportsmanship
