as an avid mmo champion visitor from sydney australia, this thread almost brought a tear to my eye....
while i know aussies play wow, and visit this site, its just great to see support from players all over the world.
mmo champion along with wow keep me sane and this thread has just boosted my belief that gamers, while are generally little fuckwits, can be nice and caring and show genuine concern.
thank you to the OP. and to the one idiot that wrote "ah well your dead"
i hope you suffer some sort of tragedy like this and that you get the same retarded attitude you have displayed here, its people like you that ruin this world.
looks like we got away with it, no reported fatalities so far
As others have said, it seems so far there hasn't been a single fatality which is just phenomonel.
Unfortunately there is 180,000 homes without power and the damage hasn't been fully assessed yet.
