    Not to minimize legitimate safety concerns, but those numbers are definitely not accurate.current estimates from legitimate sources are around 2300 deaths among 55,000~ cases so far.

    Please review factcheck.org. While the numbers have definitely increased since the report they did, the amount of misinformation going around and panic induced by the media is staggering. SE is wise to alter their plans out of an abundance of caution, of course. Please though, don't just make up numbers or quote made up numbers.


    Risk in the US is still exceedingly low, based on advice from the CDC. If you want an educated understanding of the situation and what if any response you should have,I reccomend reviewing this link, which is an official US government source.

    The tickets were free you just had to register for them. Not sure what exactly would be refunded.

    Does that look like a Chinese website to you?

    And do you think that just because you don't trust China's government (who does?) that it's okay to make up giant numbers with no basis?

    Really though, this kind of fear mongering has no place on a forum like this.

    A: There is nothing to refund, the event was free.
    B: The news post by SE itself states that the things the Producer et. al. were going to say will be presented in a different form.

    Everything is addressed.

    Its like 72000ish and 2k~ deaths. With 2% death rate and most of the deaths are people over age of 30 onward. Healthy people getting sick quicker to due their immune system acting on the virus sooner while older people taking longer to show signs and then becoming sick for longer period. Majority of them in China and rest of them on the cruise ship and released members of the cruise ship in the states. Takes around month to be fully recovered with no virus spread.

    Takes about 6 months to a year make a immune shots due to manufacturing of a active virus and killing it/nerfing it for mass spread use.(Your immune system needs a some what active virus to go attack, its not gonna attack one that's dead or the dead virus is laced with poison compound so your immune system attacks a dead virus.)

    Probably won't start seeing this clear up until June onward (Since they collected the virus back in Dec/Jan) and immune shots will be scares due to the mass amounts of people being effected now in China.

    Even though the tickets were free, people still booked hotel and airfaire/travel. So it was not free. We should at least get something in-game like a vanity item.

    Not really. That has nothing to do with SE. Everything carries an element of risk.

    Given the current climate, maybe the option of purchasing refundable tickets beforehand would have been the better idea.

    Um considering it was them that cancelled, and people booked hotels and airfare, it is their fault. It doesn't take much effort to send out something to the people who were going to participate. We might have differing opinions on that as I personally booked a hotel and travel specifically for this.

    Are you serious? There is an international viral epidemic going on, they said they do not wish to travel for that reason.

    That is not 'their fault'. It is an outside factor which is affecting many different businesses in Asia.
