On current statistics 5% of the players who get infected will pass away. But since the player base is more isolated than non gamers its probably half that. But lets say there are 5k players. We'll probably lose 50-100 players to the virus. Sadly.The virus is now killing 60 people a day there, almost doubling every day, and the controls are limited. (My state has 1 million less people than Sweden with 69 total deaths) The economy there will crumble, like most other economies around the world, and only a very small fraction of players will be able to deposit to support them, that is if Mindark isn't forced to fold to the impact on Swedens economy, and little resources to bail them out.
We might actually gain player base with people idle at home spending their savings or gov handouts.
I'm glass half full so I suspect we'll mostly still be here next year and the year after.
