Zitat von Niantic: “Trainer, das größte Update für Pokémon GO ist fast da! Bald werden Trainer weltweit überarbeitete Arenen erleben und bei Raid-Kämpfen zusammenarbeiten, um gegen mächtige Pokémon in Raid-Kämpfen anzutreten. Neue Arena-Features und Updates: In Kürze werden die Arenen maßgeblich überarbeitet. Trainer werden dann die Foto-Disc von Arenen drehen können, um genau wie an PokéStops Gegenstände zu finden – das ist jedoch nur der Anfang, denn Neuerungen an den Arenakämpfen folgen kurze Zeit später. Anstatt durch Training das Prestige einer Arena zu erhöhen, wird es dort sechs permanente Plätze geben, die vom kontrollierenden Team besetzt werden können. Jedes eingesetzte Pokémon muss einzigartig sein, so kann zum Beispiel nur ein Heiteira eine Arena verteidigen. Außerdem werden gegnerische Teams gegen die Pokémon in der Reihenfolge kämpfen, in der sie in die Arena gesetzt wurden.”

This morning, for the third week running, social media feeds are abuzz with Pokemon Go trainers sharing screen shots of their freshly delivered EX Raid passes. Unfortunately, like the vast majority who play the game across the globe, I opened the app to discover my cupboard is again bare. My two sons feel similarly robbed of a shot at Mewtwo.
To put it in context, Niantic announced Mewtwo’s imminent arrival on August 14th. In a typically ambiguous news release, trainers were told that qualification for an invitation to an EX Raid depended on successfully defeating a raid boss, doing it ‘recently’, and hoping that the gym you raided is selected for an EX Raid.
Given that we’d already completed upwards of 100 raids on the legendary birds, we felt we were in with a good chance. But that ill-defined word ‘recently’ began to bug us. What if ‘recently’ only equated to 1 week? That’s two weeks of hard won bird raids discounted. What if ‘recently’ it only means 5 days? Or 48 hours? We began to sweat.
Rightly or wrongly, Niantic’s announcement encouraged us to spend quite a few dollars and continue to raid as many different gyms as we could. The legendary birds got extended for three weeks and we kept raiding. The legendary beasts were rolled out and we raided like there was no tomorrow. What was fun, became a slog. Raids got dull. A pedestrian procession of tapping, trapping and transferring. We consoled ourselves that our chances of an EX Raid invitation were sky high.
But still no Mewtwo.
And when Mewtwo did show up, it was in a handful of test raids. Fine, we thought. Iron out the glitches and kinks. Another week of raiding passed. And then Mewtwo (in association with Sprint) got rolled out. And that’s when things turned really sour.
The beauty of augmented reality is that it creates a world that is geographically familiar, and populates it with the fantastic. It’s a unique form of escapism that let’s us tune out of our mundane surroundings and embrace something more remarkable. By taking the AR world’s most sought after monster (Mewtwo) and hatching it only in the stores of real world corporate sponsors, Niantic has inexplicably burst its beautiful bubble. It has happened again this morning. This time it’s Starbucks. And, like their coffee, it leaves a foul taste in the mouth.
Of course, we are told they are still ‘testing’. Nonsense. I have worked in the frontline of marketing for over 20 years. This is a money grab, plain and simple. A murky, mucky piece of corporate badging that has stained the rare world Niantic had created. So much so that cynical – or smart – spoofers have been targeting sponsored gyms all over the world and showing off their second and third EX Raid invitations.
The EX Raids ‘invitation’ system is fundamentally flawed and it will kill the game. It is good for short term profitability but bad for customer loyalty. In a game predicated on ‘gotta catch them all’, the invitational system is not ‘exclusive’ … it simply excludes.
My sons and I have conquered over 300 raids and spent foolish money as self-confessed ‘completists’. The reality is that we may never ‘catch them all’. It’s entirely dependent on luck and corporate intrusion. If or when we do get a shot at Mewtwo, and should we catch it, my reaction will be one of begrudging relief and not happiness. The magic is gone.
I live in a town of over 100 gyms, but none are sponsored. We have a pretty active raiding community and I can guarantee many have spent +$100 just for raid passes since raids were released. True to Niantic what is said is never meant. When they hinted at EX Raids, they mentioned that those who were active in the new GYM SYSTEM (not specifying raiding) would be rewarded. And so I thought that meant multiple things from raiding to gym battling to medals in gyms. Raiding isn't the only way to be active in the current gym system and should not be considered the only thing determining if you get a raid pass. Raid passes should be distributed to players holding a gold medal at that gym that is designated for an EX Raid, too. These tests are also becoming more and more frustrating as time progresses. Sure testing is easiest at specific sponsored gyms but how are they testing algorithms if they just place them at sponsored gyms? It seems more counterintuitive if all they have to do is flip a switch giving all sponsored gyms a mewtwo. There is no effort in their testing in the US, it seems. It should be more randomized and distributed. Watching other places get raid passes at the beginning of the week and knowing i wont be receiving one even though i play consistently makes me so frustrated at the process. Once I see the new wave of raid passes, i just sit here hoping I get selected next week for an EX Raid in my town. Niantic do something to end this infuriating experience of hoping we receive an EX raid pass.
TLDR: EX raids sucks, divides communities, kills hype and is negative for the game. personal story of how EX raids have pretty much killed the game for me.
long story here, started thinking of making it a discussion thread, but felt emotional mid writing so its now a personal story. feel free to discuss the game bits though 🙂 TLDR first for those who cant/dont want to read it. and a second one at the end 😛
its been over a month since mewtwo was released in japan, i was hopeful that, like with chicago, it would go live worldwide after a couple days…. obviously it didnt happen. hype was strong at that point, legendaries had been great. everybody was enjoying the summer. couple days later (iirc) the great rewards nerf occured (RIP GRB). hype was still strong though because mewtwo, but it was decreasing due to the nerf and the lack of information provided.
legendary birds went on till the 31st (ended the 1st actually) and after weeks of low hype already, we finally get some news. the 3 beasts/dogs/cats (whatever u wanna call them) being released and some mewtwo information. information which personally i felt insufficient. hype lasted for a week or so, people grew tired of the same legendary, the low catch rates and the abysmal drop rates… almost 3 weeks later it seems like people barely play…
whatever niantic had in mind with this, it clearly was a bad move. there was a lot of hype, players were having the time of their lives, the only thing they had to do was give us mewtwo a month ago. no EX raids, no nothing just releasing it like a normal legendary. but no, they decided to wait, kill the hype and demotivate players. its getting to the point were the front page is full of "complaint" threads, rather than stories about how much fun we have playing the game. why? cuz nobody is having fun anymore.
STORY STARTS HERE:
now why does this bother me? well, apart from all this i also have personal motives. ive done over 120 legendary raids since they were released. for the past 2 months pretty much ive dedicated my life to playing pokemon and ive love it for the most part, except the last month or so. say whatever u want, but ive been out everyday playing at least a couple hours (on average, as there were some days i only did daily streaks), and its been good for the most. ive also been able to do other stuff, but my day revolved around doing raids. all this for nothing. the first month was fun. the last month had been, raiding to get mewtwo invites. mewtwo invites im not gonna get, or if i do, i wont be able to attend. why? im leaving on sunday. starting my second year studying abroad, 10,000 kms away from home. a 18 hour trip. all this raids for nothing. testing hasnt even started here, and it probably wont, cuz south america is last or next to last in their list.
for the first time in a year of playing this game, ive actually disliked the game. the stress of, only a month left here and if EX raids dont come now i wont be able to take part in them, has been killing me. only the last couple of days, since i decided to give up on the hopes of mewtwo have made it a bit better, but it still sucks. for the first time in almost 20 years of playing pokemon ive felt bad from playing. ive been so stressed with this ive even thought about the idea of cheating so i can go to the raids (spoofing to the raids) if i get invited (i wont do it though, not gonna risk my account, not worth it).
honestly, it breaks my heart to spend so much time in something and not be able to achieve what i was looking forward to for months.
at this point ive lost all hopes of catching a mewtwo in my home city and ive gotten to the point of feeling that its better if it doesnt come for a while (yes, its a bit selfish from me), but with the invites being extended to europe and asia (according to TSR), its a matter of days (or weeks) before it gets to the rest of the world. yes, im going to europe and might get an invite after raiding there once i get there, but i wont be able to raid with the friends i made here in these 2 months+ and it wont be the same. the worst part is going to be getting invites for raids i wont be able to participate, even worse, taking an invite away from others who could go. thats why i propose a solution.
make EX passes not tied to a gym. give an EX pass for X gym and then give an option to use it at another gym at the time they have an EX raid. this way, people wont have to travel back for raids, people on holidays wont be discouraged to raid, people working/at school will be able to use their pass. or simply scrap the EX raid system, nobody benefits from it, it divides communities and nobody is happy. also, having people meet in X place at Y time makes it an easy target for crime or whatever, especially in insecure places. one more thing, improve communication. incomplete information or omitting information is a form of deceiving the player base, something which is unethical (not a legal expert but thinking it may be illegal to an extent too?)
im very disappointed by the game, and although Nintendo doesnt make the game, im disappointed by them too, for letting things like this happen. pokemon is supposed to make people happy, and this game is not going to the right direction.
to whoever managed to read all this THANKS A LOT! it started as a topic of discussion and ended as a story/rant that i had to get off. it feels much better to get this off honestly, so thanks to anybody who read it and sorry to whoever read it and didnt like it 🙂 also, sorry for any grammar/spelling mistakes and whatsoever, my computer is set to spanish so it sometimes autocorrects and writing this had made me too emotional to go back and re read this. also english is not my native language.
also, would be nice if niantic reads some of this (not necesarilly the story part but the part on how it killed the hype) to either apply a change or review their EX raid concept cuz its not good. would tag nianticgeorge but never learned how to.
TLDR2: disappointed by the game. the EX raid concept is horrible but its not too late to change it. making EX passes more variable (not tied to a specific gym) could be a possible solution. taking too long to fully release content is a bad marketing idea and kills the players.
