The $20 pack has 30 tickets and 150 souls, that's the entire SP card right there without the randomness of the roulette. It doesn't look so bad if you're actually rolling to complete her (and not just trying to stock up on AS souls).
In the Halloween shop I picked up the set cards but I'm keeping the tokens for now, I'm waiting to see if I get lucky in the gacha with any of the characters, and I don't know yet if I'll bother with the option cards.

Since they remove the Soul Quest for collab characters once the collab is over, expect it to take a while to get enough AS Gold souls and purple souls to max out your Genjuro.

What ? Nothing of what I said is directed at you specifically. It's a generic "you". In this case, it's about JKA, but I don't even care and I'm not even calling him xenophobic. I'm just saying it's obvious people might take what he says as xenophobic.
So you basically accuse me of cherry-picking when I just provided you with MULTIPLE cases that the scientific community decided to coin certain diseases based on its origins
But they didn't do that for this one, they gave it multiple actual names and none of them are based on its point of origin.

What you're referring to are "opinions"
No, I'm referring to people deciding what facts to use and what other facts not to use, so that they can justify their opinion.

What's compelling you to use that as a name instead of the many other names it has ? Coronavirus, Covid-19, SARS-CoV-2. If you wanted to go by where it came from, you could even call it the Wuhan virus. But no, let's not use any of that, let's not use its actual birthplace, let's use a much broader term for no real reason (and pretend that this is more fitting to designate as its birthplace rather than Wuhan), no matter how you try to justify it after the fact.
This is a decision you made, and it's very easy for anyone who hears that to form a conclusion on why you made that decision.
How do you not get that this is a conclusion people wil inevitably make about you, no matter how you try to explain to them that you are only driven by facts and logic (which you're cherry-picking) ?

There's no such thing as stating facts, especially on the Internet. People only say things for a specific reason, and only ever cherry pick the facts that suit what they want to say. That's why people will interpret what you say differently and may decide to call you xenophobic.
And viruses don't have nationalities.

"Kid" lol
That's literally how the real world works, this has nothing to do with online forums. If people who hear you talk think you're being xenophobic, they're going to judge you and call you xenophobic, no one cares what your background is. Go back to school or something.

So, now you can judge me because my point of view?
Yes ???
The Chinese government wasn't just negligent, they were criminal as usual, shutting down and vanishing the people ringing the alarm bells. But you want to talk about negligence when you're from Brazil with Bolsonaro as your president ? The guy who's still denying the threat of the virus even though he himself is infected by it ?

It's everyone's fault, everyone on the planet found out about it in mid January at the latest and yet the governments of the world still waited a month and a half to do anything about it. Only after Italy cracked, people started saying "let's wait another 2 weeks to see how that goes".

Yes ???? It's everyone else's decision. It's not for you to say, it's for everyone else to judge you.
Nobody thinks they're saying or doing something bad.

Influenza doesn't cause mass levels of self-isolation.
Uh ? We're doing isolation to slow this down. If isolation is done properly, then it might not get as bad as that. but then again, the US is obviously not doing isolation properly.
Second thing is, isolation is done to slow it down, it's unlikely to stop it. Contagion will happen, it's just that it'll happen much slower if people do this right, and if it's slow enough, then it can very easily be handled in hospitals and early care, even if there's still a 1~3% mortality rate. But the total numbers who will have gotten it will still be very high a year and a half from now. It's just that if it's slowed down enough, you won't hear much about it because people will be able to go to the hospital a few at a time and they'll all get proper treatment and most of them will make it out easily. If it doesn't work, they'll all get it at the same time and they'll clog the hospitals and a lot of people who didn't have to die from it will die.

Finally, frivolous numbers given the overall gravity of the situation, but I feel it must be said. Experts claim that up to 70% of Americans will get infected in the next 18 months. That's laughably inaccurate, and the natural skeptic in me wonders why they'd use such a crazy high number. Current number of cases in the US are at 35,000. To get to even 1%, that number would have to spike to 3 million. Even that number is lofty, much less 210 million. Even Italy, which inexplicably got hit real bad, is not a the 1% mark yet. So yeah, be careful believing what media tells you and stuff.
The flu hits dozens of millions of people a year in the US, and that's with a vaccine AND just counting the people with symptoms. If you think these coronavirus estimates are crazy high, it's because you don't realize how easily those things spread, and how even with proper testing, you still would miss a lot of people that don't have symptoms. I don't know if 70% is accurate, but it's definitely way in the double digits. The flu is in the double digits, and that's contained with a vaccine. This is not fake news, this is not fear mongering.

and yes media is over blowing it
No, they're not. Here in France we've been hitting a hundred deaths per day even though we've been in total isolation for a week, and Italy is at over 600 deaths a day. Germany seems to have just started reacting, after a week of every local state saying "I'll decide if I'm in danger at my own pace, thank you very much" which is exactly what a virus like that needs to propagate super fast, so they'll have a pretty bad curve in a couple of weeks too. People in Florida were partying around like they don't give a fuck, that's going to change real fast.
Different countries are at different stages, but this is serious and yes the media everywhere need to take it as seriously as it is, because every hospital is crumbling already. It's not the Black Plague, but we shouldn't need to compare it to that, it's not a hurdle we're supposed to look at and say "see, it's not as bad as that, so it's fine". We should be able to handle it much better than the worst period in the Middle Ages, if we could all just react a lot faster and take it seriously.
And yes, that worldometer site is accurate.

Total number of deaths in France is 264, including 89 just yesterday. 930 sick people are in critical condition right now, so it's about to rise. We've been in full lockdown since last Sunday, so we're hoping it doesn't get as bad as Italy...

You can be a carrier and feel no symptom. If you touch your face, you're transmitting it, and it might get to someone who might be vulnerable.

heard some big pharm in the US is having a legal battle with china for the vaccine cause they want to patent the vaccine and sell it to people.
A few days ago Trump got told to piss off for trying to buy a German company that's working on a vaccine, because he wanted only the US to have it.

and "all of canada", means that the population of canada is more spread than in california, so I say california is not doing much worse than canada , if not otherwise.
Yeah, similarly I was thinking, how did it reach Colorado, GLB ? Literal middle of the country with a whole lot of nothing and no one all around. Did it get here through the Denver airport or is there that much passage ?

Got False Yashiro just in time before False Orochi.
Lv 36~40 buffs, Joe 94 for his team-wide leadership, Geese 14 for the damage (24k CP) with Genjuro as a backup damage dealer when Yashiro reflects my color. Using Genjuro as main damage dealer fell a little short. Orochi Shermie seems good at breaking his defense, but she still dies fast, so she needs a good heal or a good backup, I couldn't go through him with her.

Genjuro is like a backup Orochi. Slightly better heal, much easier to maintain your offense (Orochi's movements are a bit weird and wonky), not the same armor+immunity but still nice armor. But he still has a lower attack stat.
