Little Orbit coronavirus measures & working remote

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I'm sure by now that everyone has seen the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) on their city, work, schools, and entertainment.

 

Starting Monday the 16th until the foreseeable future, all Little Orbit employees will be working remotely until we get different guidance from health officials. We prepped all week to make sure teams had hardware and instructions on how to check in during the day with their leads for tasks and updates. 

 

Come hell or high water, the team is dedicated to shipping the Engine Upgrade, and we didn't get this close to be sidelined by a little virus.

 

I know this may be a little scary right now. And APB is just a game. But since many of you will be temporarily home due to work or supporting family members, we want to insure that the game is online and available for all our players to distract themselves with some missions, fight club, or a little virtual socialization in Breakwater.

 

I'm also going to be turning on Free Premium for all players across all platforms.

NOTE: We will be snapshotting the active Premium days for everyone, and we'll extend those days once everything goes back to normal.

Hopefully that will make Social a little more fun for the time being.

 

I'm also going to ask for everyone's patience with us.

We are going to do our best to make this as smooth as possible.


And most of all, wash your hands. Don't touch your face. Avoid large gatherings.

Stay safe.

 

Thanks,
Matt

 

That's a very nice giveaway, thanks LO.

Take care and stay safe, everyone, better safe than sorry with all these hindering procedures.

Really thanks for your hard work guys! And thanks for the free premium, appreciated.

I hope this virus gets eradicated quickly, but for now we have to stay safe in quarantine.

Cheers!

I was hoping for a free gas mask, but premium works too 8^)

 

We really appreciate you continuing to work on the game and making us feel more comfortable at home.

 

Stay safe, Matt, LO Staff, and players.

Corona virus is a lie. Its not any different from regular flu. A conspiracy by WHO to sell their freaking diagnostic kits in the name of fear.

 

Change my mind.

 its not about how dangerous it is but how easy it can spread. Young people can just sick it out and get immune against it. But imagine you infecting your grand mother or grand father and they die indirectly because you though the virus was nothing more then a flu and infected them. That is the scary part about the virus.

 

These measures also keeps away that the virus spreads way to fast and to many people are hospitalized and that there is no resource available anymore for people that are in need.

Fortunately it might cause infertility even with mild symptoms 🙂

True. It's enough when only 10% of population needs hospital bed, 5% needs ICU with respirator. There is no country that would have so many free beds, properly isolated to not infect other patients and let alone enough of staff and protection gear. It's all about flattening the curve to spread the infections over longer period of time. Wuhan and Italy are the example what happens when few nut cases decide to walk around coz it's just flu.

Let's not forget that Italy's healthcare system is abysmal.

Nah man, we gotta have maximum protection, use the gas masks.  Can't touch your face or cough on people.  Nothing goes in, nothing goes out.

Fear not, everyone that is somehow involved in APB builds up a natural resistance to all toxic and harmful things like diseases.

We have survived years of this game what is that little virus going to do to us? It will neutralize itself in terror the moment it gets into contact with one of us.

I think you folks have a good chance of being immune too after almost 2 years with us. 😏

This is a Weapon, You 'all know that don't you. Either we did it to the Chinese or they did it to they own people. Both us and them have been known to test things on our own people. 

  They didn't freak out like this with Ebola or the Bird Flu, They didnt even freak this bad when Aids came out. 

I Believe the gov knows more than we are being told, and we are expecting another attack.

Next thing will be Martial Law, n just like all those MOvies. I am Ready as I can be. 

 Am I Worried about the Virus, No. I am worried about peoples reaction to it. 

This is Time that All Us Conspiresy Nuts get to say, " I Told U So". 

I hope We All come through this, Even you pesky Golds.

 

   Now if the Reds get to our water, Remember 2 drops of bleach per gallon of water, Strain it with a sock. Up to 5 ML per gallon wont hurt you, thats about 5-6 drops.

   And People, Remember Your Eyes. a mask dont mean pattottie if they sneeze in your eye, get 'Cheap SunGlasses' or swimming mask works too, specially if tear gas is introduced. Its not sealed, but it can deflect airborn particles.

 

  p.s. From My Wife "Remember To Double Tap" 🇺🇸
