    The other thing is, yes, some people may say they'd prefer it on their own, but to be fair, they're normally looking at the short term - long term affects you more than you think. And then to do it when you're *forced* to do it, and then add in 6 months of having to do it, is an entirely different story to a week or so.
    Live alone and its so shit right now, I was having a break from socialising in late 2019 because a girl died who had lived with me in the past and very shit circumstances, told a few people ill be back out with them when the nights got brighter in 2020, I get a train once or twice a month to the nearby city and go to "events".

    @macmurphy I like it, but it's hard to justify the 200+gb of space required

    Iím not sure what sweaty means but I havenít enjoyed a shooter this much since the BFBC2 days.

    I havenít had much experience with the BR games. I didnít like Fortnite because of all the buildy shit.

    Think Warzone plays like a dream and itís great with friends. Getting the win (really, really, really rarely) has been amongst the best gaming experiences Iíve ever had.

    @JamboWayOh

    I donít know what sweaty means used in the context of a game?

    Yeah I quoted wrong box, wait one.

    Fixed Jambo. Not at my best first thing.

    To be clear, for the benefit of Askew, I am the dribbler not Jambo.

    To answer your Edited question after your Grandpa Simpson moment, it's a term for people who play a game as if it's a cash prize tournament, with all the seriousness that goes with it. I'm totally OK with competition but Warzone players seem to go beyond that. I will say that the mechanics are all very sound though.

    Hmm.. are threads getting screwed up or are the above 6 or so comments related to this or a gaming thread?

    Is confusion on the list of symptoms too?

    I think people are just taking a break from the relentless oppression of Covid.

    Just the 28,000 cases reported today

    And a government so devoid of credibility and lacking in support for communities that local authorities across the country would rather risk greater exposure and lesser restrictions than follow the latest revision of lockdown/tier guidance.

    Just have a fucking 2 week lockdown. Pubs are fucked as it is but do 2 weeks hard lock, then set some sensible rules and sort the fucking system out

    If nothing else, take a week off the summer holiday and extend the half term. Itís kids who are spreading it, just give them a fortnight away from each other.

    It would be good to get some really meaningful data on who is actually spreading it. It seems logical itís the kids, and yet I canít help but feel workplaces, public transport, pubs, restaurants and people generally not behaving like thereís a pandemic is more the issue.

    I mean, itís probably a combination of all that with kids being the jump point but a two week kid lockdown seems like the most obvious, easiest win of the lot.
