    Default If CoV19 was a virtual Virus in DDO: 5 reasons why it would not do any harm at all

    1. No larger groups than 12 people. Most of the time no grouping at all, except with a hire and maybe some summons / companions. No possibility to contract the disease from other Player toons.
    2. Even Marketplace virtually devoid of people, so keeping your distance easily done.
    3. Servers like virtual empty spaces. Wayfinder like a quarantine station. All other servers severely underpopulated. Again, where to contract it?
    4. Even the Barbarians use pot and scroll healing. Virtually no possibility even if your toon contracts the Virus, that there is an outbreak of the disease before it´s healed.
    5. Last but not least: Saves, protective gear, etc will prevent any toon above lv. 3 Korthos or Borderlands to contract the Virus at all.

      not enough players still play to make it an issue but assuming there were, just like real life, people would still move around, missunderstandings, shopping sprees, fear,or even intentional mallice are plenty of reasons why people and the virus, might spread(just to name a few
    2. Even Marketplace virtually devoid of people, so keeping your distance easily done.
      as we're seeing over here, dating sites see a sharp rise in use, people have too much time on their hands and an ich to scratch, so even with all the virtual space availeble, people would still find a reason to meet each other
    3. Servers like virtual empty spaces. Wayfinder like a quarantine station. All other servers severely underpopulated. Again, where to contract it?
    4. Even the Barbarians use pot and scroll healing. Virtually no possibility even if your toon contracts the Virus, that there is an outbreak of the disease before it´s healed.

    Do people ussually sleep in that gear too?

    Wel, to be fair, if it was just a dc 5 or 10 dissease then noone in the game would have batted an eye.
    I sould assume the devs would have made it a dc of 200 to see if you contract it and a "mere" 60 or 80+30 per age catacory.

    With no commenly availleble , fully working antidote.

    Thumbs down

    There are thousands dead and currently suffering with the disease with millions effected by lifestyle restrictions and possibility of losing their livelihoods and you use this as a weak attempt at humour to attack the game.

    If you dislike the game this much then just leave and also leave the attempts at humour to the professionals who might actually create something funny.

    I may be feeding the troll but I don't care.
