Things the Scarlet Spear Operation Probably Needs

Operation Scarlet Spear has left an awful taste in people’s mouths. Despite being a long-wanted event, the amount of grind, the bugs and the all-round confusion have made the operation a pain in the butt. People aren’t enjoying the missions at all. But while bugs and the like will be fixed eventually, here are a few… quality of life features I think this operation needs. Better Reward Scaling on Ground Missions No matter how you look at it, it’s better to do Murex if you want credits. While Murex are slower missions, they are somewhat easier to cheese and give… [Continue Reading]

Operation Scarlet Spear – A Simple Event With An Awful Grind

After a promise of “early March”, Operation Scarlet Spear has arrived, alongside a bunch of other changes. The other changes are numerous, mostly bug fixes, as well as a Nova skin and some augments. But the Operation is… something else. And not in a good way. For starters, it’s buggy. This is basically guaranteed for every new event that comes out these days. Scarlet Spear is no different. It’s full of crashes. Okay, sure, a lot of this is being fixed as we go along, but it’s a pain in the ass. Between people crashing and the bugs, not much… [Continue Reading]

The Weird Pokemon Go Event No One Really Noticed

Over the weekend that introduced season two of the GBL and brought back Altered Forme Giratina, something strange happened. There was clearly an event, but no one seemed to… notice. It just happened. There was no real announcement, nothing. But it was there. It wasn’t a good event, but it was there. I didn’t notice this event myself until I bought the 1 coin Incense pack and used one. Because of the current pandemic that’s sweeping the globe, Incenses have been buffed. While an Incense used to last 30 minutes and spawn 5-8 Pokemon, increasing if you are traveling, walking… [Continue Reading]

WAY Too Many Events In Pokemon Go – Are Events Becoming A Problem?

Editor’s Note: This article’s kinda weird now that places are locking down because of COVID-19, but the article does still apply because the raid events ARE still happening, despite lock downs. The major difference is that these raid events have also turned into PVP events too. Wow. This year has been absolutely jam-packed with events in Pokemon Go! We have had so much to do! In March alone, except for normal events like Community Days, we have had an event every weekend, with overlapping events too! In fact, it’s reached the point where I can’t keep up! What is going… [Continue Reading]

Abra Community Day Postponed and other Pokemon Go Changes

It seems like the Corona Virus is currently hitting quite hard, with reactions from “seal everything off completely because this is highly contagious!” (a good thing) to “meh, it’s just a cold!” (a bad thing). Now, I’m no expert, so I’m not going to talk about things I don’t know about. All I’ll say is that you should wash your damn hands. But I DO know about Pokemon Go. And Pokemon Go is cancelling or postponing events left right and center. Yes, events are being cancelled. The first big cancellation was that all events in South Korea, Japan and Italy… [Continue Reading]

Team GO Rocket Attacks Nearly Every Pokestop – the 2pm – 5pm Team GO Rocket Event

On March 7th 2020, from 2pm until 5pm, Team GO Rocket struck again! They attacked every single Pokestop they could find! For three glorious hours, Giovanni’s grunts, both male and female, took over every Pokestop around, while also giving up bonus stardust. There were also a handful of special Team GO Rocket research tasks. And frankly? It was bloody brilliant! In fact, this mini-event was so good that I managed to get my Shadow Entei in under 2 hours. That’s genuinely insane. I actually started today with just a single Rocket Radar, hoping to defeat one of the Team GO… [Continue Reading]

The Very Sudden Reappearance of Primed Chamber

A long time ago, back in the distant past of Warframe, there was a mod called Primed Chamber. It is a simple mod. If you install this mod on your sniper rifle, the first shot does up to 100% extra damage. But Primed Chamber, for the longest of times, was a prized reward. Why? Because no one owned Primed Chamber. Well, I say no one. I mean very few people. Originally, only 100 copies of the mod existed. The mod was given out during an event called the Spy Drone Extermination Event. All you had to do was shoot Grineer… [Continue Reading]

Poor Little Sinnoh Event

There’s currently an event in Pokemon Go right now, a three day event featuring Pokemon from the Sinnoh region, i.e. generation 4. But it’s a very small event, somewhat slipped in over a weekend, in the middle of a month that’s absolutely packed with a huge number of rather random events, everything from votes for a Community Day, a World Pokemon Day event and random mystery events as well, not to mention your standard Valentines Day event because of course there has to be a Valentines Day event. So this Sinnoh event is a thing and it’s… kinda small and… [Continue Reading]

December Community Weekend

Pokemon Go decided to end community days for 2019 with a bang by repeating somewhat what they did in 2018, by having a community day weekend, bringing back all of the year’s community day Pokemon for one final send off before leaping into 2020, while also bringing back 2018’s Pokemon. So we get two things: a collection of Pokemon from 2019 and a collection of Pokemon from 2018. One of these was done really well. The other, not so much. When it comes to the implementation of the 2019 community day stuff, I couldn’t be happier. We get two days’… [Continue Reading]

Pokemon GO had its first premium event. Was it worth getting?

Pokemon GO has extensively used in-game events to spice up the playerbase or showcase a new pokemon, and for the most part they’ve been very well received. But the recent Colossal Discovery, heralding the return of the Regis and the arrival of their overlord Regigigas, received a tepid response from the community at best due to being a premium event. You had to shell out $7.99 if you wanted to experience the event spawns, complete event researches, and catch the early-access Regigigas at the end. Was it worth it? Do you have a ticket for A Colossal Discovery? Be sure… [Continue Reading]
