So, realistically, this isn’t doing a bit of good.
CCP should have just offered the rewards on the NEStore. With a portion of the proceeds going to the WHO, since this whole thing is about finding out how our immune system and pathogens interact.
I mean…for a game that preaches ‘The Butterfly Effect’. They sure aren’t making use of it…
“Gaming company, CCP, raises over $1 million USD to help combat infectious diseases.”
((Gaming companies: Holy crap! Look at the response; the free publicity that generated!"
“Activision-Blizzard […] donation”
“Ubisoft […] donation”
“Several gaming companies have raised a combined $million.”
Instead they opt to do this, where making a bigger box gets you better accuracy, on the verified slides. Which means, we’re just doing ‘big boxes’ on the unverified ones; we’re gaming the system with out even realizing it, because chances are my boxes look a lot like your boxes on the unverified.
((Spoilers: They don’t, because I can , with a 90%+ accuracy rate, guess which ones aren’t going to be verified. So I just draw a single box and continue. Which just goes to show how pointless this was, and should have been scraped for the above alternative of just buying the items and giving a portion to international organizations that deal with studying infectious diseases.))
