Event by event EPOS calculations in which the expansion of the system is described by {\it ideal} hydrodynamics reproduce well the measured centrality dependence of $v_2/\epsilon_{part}$, although it has been claimed that only viscous hydrodynamics can reproduce these data. This is due to the core - corona effect which manifests itself in the initial condition of the hydrodynamical expansion. The centrality dependence of $v_2/\epsilon_{part}$ can be understood in the recently advanced

This model has already been successfully applied to understand the centrality dependence of multiplicities and of the average transverse momentum of identified particles.
