I had a bacteria that evolved to be even harder to vaccinate against. I let the game run overnight - by morning, I had infected the entire world and had enough points to buy EVERY symptom. The world was wiped out in about two minutes flat.

Started in Greenland, it was the last to close ANYTHING. Soon killed off Madagascar. And spent a lot of time just watching the infected die off. When the vaccine was developed, it somehow mutated my virus to make it immune to ALL potential vaccines, and I wonder how that works to be honest. Killed everyone in every country but Japan. With Lessons.

I keep reading about Greenland's hospital being the Determinator, but several times I've played where all hospitals are closed long before the world (always minus Madagascar) is depopulated. Is it just my experience, or does this actually happen to anyone else?

They seem to close it when you get drug resistance 4. Without it, it stay open, even if you whip out almost everyone there, but they seam to realize that the hospital is no use against a illness completely immune to drugs. But I'm not sure with that.

About the page:

Which trope is it that covers the fact that is a country has closed its borders, the spread of an insect-, rodent-, or water-vectored disease is stopped completely? How is the US going to successfully keep mosquitoes from crossing to Canada?

Started in greenland. Infected the *entire* world over the span of 88 days. Spent the next 120 slowly ramping up the symptoms, starting with fever, then fatigue, then nausea, ataxia, insanity, dementia, and finally necrosis. The human race ended due to a disease that made you hot, tired, unable to walk properly, crazy and losing your mind at the same time, all the while your flesh is rotting away.

And Madagascar did *nothing* about it, the final place to be infected on day 88 when I started kicking the disease up a few notches...ahhh..

Started in New Zealand. Currently, the infected outnumber the healthy 3 to 1, and the government has done ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to stop the disease. The Middle East, in comparison, has closed everything and has done five of the eight government actions though only one fifth of the population is infected.

Woo! Started a new game on Realistic mode, got placed in Madagascar of ALL places. I managed to kill the whole world except for Japan and China, who both shut themselves off about halfway through the first year. Even despite those two stupid stubborn countries, I still count it a win because I KILLED MADAGASCAR!

I had a parasite start in Madagascar and infect much of the planet before the vaccine even started. The vaccine failed and I was able to infect humanity. Then I made it a zombify people (Necrosis and Insanity).

It's just not as big of an accomplishment since it was on Relaxed rather than Realistic (I'll try to redo it on Realistic another time).
