Punkbuster is essentially dated software and it's aging badly. I guess some recent Windows update messed up with the core functions, breaking it for the most part.

yea heard mexico wants to close there borders as well, guess we won't need that wall built, not saying this isn't a real issue but its being blown out of proportion!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
closing dam restaurants and bars in Illinois, wait for the kaos to begin not from the virus but from the people that are going to be going insane from all this
Well, check for yourself. "The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is now recommending halting gatherings of more than 50 people across the United States for the next eight weeks, citing the risk of the coronavirus." https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2020/03/15/coronavirus-latest-news/
Massachusetts already banned dining out.

You guys are really over exaggerating this virus, I'm willing to bet yous are the same ones running to stores stocking up on toilet paper lol

Best way to deal with this turn off the news and radios,  nothing but fake news as my good friend TRUMP would say lol
1. Those issues aren't some "fake news". It's a real issue.
3. Most of the European countries are closing their borders. Italy, France and Spain started, Germany will follow soon.
2. The Fed just lowered the borrowing base rate to zero, and launched 700 billions spending on a quantitative easing program. On a Sunday evening. https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/15/federal-reserve-cuts-rates-to-zero-and-launches-massive-700-billion-quantitative-easing-program.html

Most of the main airports in the US today are crowded with plenty of people coming back from Europe or other foreign countries, which in itself isn't great, but the worst is keeping a lot of people as close as this for hours, while waiting for a screening that might just not be enough, cause an actual test for the virus takes hours. Quarantine was supposed to be the measure, screening will only reveal a few of the most obvious cases but even a common flu or someone with slightly higher body temperature (37,5°C degrees) might get labeled as potentially infected, while theyre not.

Stuff like this helps spreading way way more than just a couple flights with an infected passenger onboard. It shifts the contagion from potential to actual risks.

I'll just say it again, you can NOT massively test entire countries properly in a short amount of time


not half of Italy was in China, that critical persons could not be tested initially,that those who are potentially critical, whether traveling on a critical country or any other basis, could not be tested at corona virus.
I do not blame Italy Coden!as I said in some of the posts, incompetent people rule our countries!
I hope all of this will be over soon!!
It's likely that those people from Europe that were travelling to China got back to Europe before the virus actually became an emergency. Therefore they had quite some time to spread the virus before WHO/OMS could actually tell its potential. As a matter of fact, back in late January Italy took back home (and quarantined) 56 italian citizens, of which only 1 was diagnosed as carrying covid19 (he soon recovered and was declared as "healed").
The main case which is supposed to have contributed greatly to spreading the virus is a 38 years old guy that met with another guy that got back from China on January 21st, literally the day before Wuhan got into quarantine and chinese authorities applied a different regime to the area. The 38 year old guy had to be taken to intensive care and artificial breathing, the guy who is theorically supposed to be the original "virus carrier" instead only had a bit of fever several days earlier, not much at all, and was also tested negative against the virus when they tracked the issues down back to him.

here's how the scientist explains why there was such a great contagion in Italy (Ivan Đikić)

A guest on the Croatian Radio Interview of the Week program, scientist Ivan Djikic, a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, explained why so many people became infected in Italy in the short span, why there were so many casualties, and why it was not a viable scenario in Croatia.

Is it too late with prevention, but is the beginning underestimated? How did we get Italy to be one of the most infected countries in the world now?

- It's all about the knowledge. When one knows what happened in China, where the virus appeared on the market in Wuhan. People brought the virus to the market and infected other people, and one exponential, uncontrolled epidemic erupted from the market. And only then did China's health system realize the danger and respond, he explained. He stressed, however, that initially the virus was thought to have appeared on the market, to find out that it had appeared much earlier, in the surrounding towns around the city.

- You fight the enemy, and you don't know where it is. It happened in China. Then, by rigorous measures, they were able to make something that many admired. They were able to stop the danger in their territory. In Italy, the virus was brought from China. And he was brought, not with one zero patient, but about a dozen or even a hundred. Italy did not know about them because no one was doing the right epidemiological analysis of people working in China, Djikic explained Italy's problem.

- The disease will spread, we know we can't stop it. There are no borders or weapons. We can only get an immune response, the so-called by natural cleavage of the public, destroy the further spread of the virus and the virus will naturally disappear, he said.

I'll just say it again, you can NOT massively test entire countries properly in a short amount of time, besides the virus was reported as an epidemic only in January, when several people already got back from China to each and every respective country by a few days or a week already (before it became a severe issue in China). Whether or not they contracted the infection, they could've had all the time to further spread it before enough patients got admitted to medical screening and there was an amount of cases high enough to make proper tests and statistics. That is also why quarantine was declared so late, or rather, it was recognized as the proper measure for a disease that you can't actually take control of in any amount of time that could prevent further spread.

If you're willing to understand why it went by so "stealth", check and compare it against other strongly impacting and severe epidemics from recent times. Ebola and Zika had much more noticeable symptoms, with a rather high death rate. Covid19 does not, or at least it surely kills people, but it affects many many more.

and koden..
italy made the most mistakes in the eu regarding the corona virus!!
your statesmen are as corrupt and incompetent as they are in my country..unfortunately...

There are many assumptions being made, this virus doesn't behave like the usual flu virus would, at first it might not necessarily appear much different in comparison to the usual flu, but it ends up being much more aggressive once it settles (and that might take a rather substantial amount of time, between 2 and 7 days in most cases, before showing any symptomps). Also, Italy (as South Korea did) extensively tested its population for the virus (up to several thousand tests a day), while many other countries did not. Therefore you're likely to see a pattern of higher peaks - or heavy respiratory issues-related cases-  throught Europe as a whole, as soon as more people get tested, or even admitted to the hospital or medical screening.

The basic is: its hard to detect before symptoms are noticeable - there's still not a practical way to test people with tampons against the virus over a million scale - once you get hit HARD you will need intensive care and likely artificial ventilation because of the specific nature and consequences of the virus, which doesn't have a specific antiviral product developed yet.

It does not matter who you're gonna transfer the virus to, even if you're not hit hard at all, you might get your mother, your father, your relatives, elderly or weaker people suffer a worser pain because of a potential contagion you may contribute to spread.

Imho most countries should be prepared to declare a nearly complete quarantine. Most cases show little to no symptoms, and that is specifically what enabled a widespread outbreak of the virus. Presenting no symptom makes for a perfect candidate for anybody to carry the virus and further spread it.
The main issue is that the heaviest risk and consequence of the virus is interstitial pneumonia, which isn't exactly easy to cure and requires artificial respirators in order for the patient to properly breath, also some buildup of fluids in both lungs might cause further issues.

Needless to say, patient carrying said pneumonia need to get taken and treated in intensive care, and provided that every country has enough intensive care rooms, it might not necessarily have enough respirators for each and every single person at the peak of the outbreak.

So, yeah, it's fundamental to avoid further spreading the outbreak.

The plan is to implement ray tracing way in the future (when it's cheaper) and then bring it back in time with time travel.

Gotta call Nvidia straight away for that kind of thing! haha :D

Serveradmins did I miss something very important?


Round timing? Unless you want it to be specific and map-related, but that's gonna prevent people from using maps for tournaments and such (where there's typically a shorter round, say between 2 and 3 minutes).

I had to take a screenshot of my profile just to have some memories...
Even tho the site is dead but i still wanted to visit there sometimes, sad to see it go down. I also wonder why Homie never wanted to transfer the site to some new admins?
Personal data from the accounts details would be a reason, i think. Even if it's outdated material for the most part.

Miscellaneous / Re: What you think of Trump just curious

wooo hooo off by 1 year, how's my post so ignorant?????
why cause I'm a strong trump supporter and i love every thing he's doing?? specially trying to get rid of the illegal immigrants and making are borders better

Look...i understand illegal immigration is a problem...but the wall doesn't seem to be the solution. It won't help these people, it's going to cost a fortune, and...do you realize how much 3145kms (1954 miles) are? How are they going to actually patrol the whole border 24/7 any better than they already do? The border currently already has wall-like structures for most of its length. Building a taller and tougher wall will not stop people from trying to get in. Perhaps it will slow them down, but at what cost...

Besides, has Trump ever heard about the Berlin wall?

I'm actually surprised they kept the website and all its related services online up to this date, i don't remember seeing many ads and they probably didnt make even for the cost of keeping everything up.
