Ingress event moves from Brazil to Seattle over Zika virus fears

A large gathering of Ingress players in Rio, Brazil for an anomaly — a multi-hour in-person gaming event — has been mostly moved to Seattle due to a WHO travel advisory and fears of players contracting the Zika virus.

Niantic Labs decided to downscale the February 27th Rio event in the face of Zika, changing the location from a primary anomaly to a satellite one and offering ticket refunds for players. On the flipside, Seattle’s been upgraded from a satellite to a primary.

As part of its announcement, the studio incorporated the move into the game’s lore: “Agents, due to escalating concerns by the World Health Organization regarding the Zika virus, and the challenges it presents, the #Obsidian Rio event has been reclassified as a Satellite Flash Shard anomaly. The new Primary city for the events occurring on 27 FEB will be Seattle, WA where Susanna Moyer will be making her appearance. The Seattle event will also be a Flash Shard anomaly.”

Very little. Not a single of my tips during Abaddon made it to the page. Were the biggest (map and simultaneous players) MMO out there, yet so little love.
(I blame Bree’s husband for dragging her to a lot of silly portals;D )

What’s scary about this, is that Rousseff’s government are suppose to be the progressive ones. I’d hate to see what the regressive ones are like. :(

Armsbend BritoBruno “If Brazil could get past their ingrained corruption on every level the country would be a superpower.” Totally. I’d even welcome it.

Edit/Note: Knowing there’s a few posters here harkening from Brazil, this conversation has become increasingly embarrassing. /bleah
Also: Thanks for some of the clean-up, Bree.

BritoBruno I;ve had two extremely dangerous situations with the police.  I seriously would have felt more safe deep in Rio’s favelas then in the company of those sons of bitches.

BritoBruno If Brazil could get past their ingrained corruption on every level the country would be a superpower.  The people, natural resources and strategic location would ensure it.  BRs seriously need to have an armed revolution to get rid of ALL the jokers country-wide.  GL.

I’m going to be completely honest and imbecile:
Avoid coming to Brazil altogether. While the country isn’t exactly in shambles, and i’m not knowledgeable in diseases, not even on this epidemy, what i CAN say is that our politics, including the ones that involves disease-control, are completely corrupt.
Brazil always had extremely numerous cases of Dengue, and the government never really spent much on the control and cure of it. Our most known hospitals are always overpopulated ( and with this virus, i’m assuming it’ll be worse ).
But what really gives me the anger, is how corrupt our government is with such issues. We’re still having a religious debacle on our national congress, where the chairman wants to make “Christphobia” a crime ( Yes. That’s right. Christphobia. ), while we have this crap to deal with.
Brazil is a country tarnished by it’s governors and it’s populace ignorance. I don’t recomend spending money to give those idiots anything. I may sound biased and salty, but i actually am, because there’s several shit no one here should have to deal with, and we’re right now, dealing with.

Banchou Kenny_ Ninguém vai encher o saco da gente aqui. A maioria da galera aqui nos comments é tranquila.
Btw, eu estou completamente desligado de como o vírus age ou coisa parecida, não tem risco de vida pra adultos? Minha casa é cheia de muriçoca/mosquitos, então eu estou meio assustado, ultimamente.
