I used to be in the relaxed and wait my turn camp for my Ex Raid chance but now I’ve joined the couldn’t give a stuff about Ex Raids camp.
A few things that have transpired over time the last week and a bit to flip that view around. I’ve invested a fair bit of time and all the coins I’d saved up over time during the last week helping a group of people trying to trigger an Ex Raid in an area that fit the criteria.
All up with the families 4 accounts used I’d done 26 eligible Raids on the target Gym only to find out when the Passes came out with the Glitch issue that everyone in our group had got Passes except any of the families accounts. That wasn’t the bit that bothered me it was the aprox 20 others that got Ex Raid Passes that had not touched that Gym in over a month by their own confession and some had never Raided, only spun the gym disc.
A couple of days later I had my first Ex Raid at another hot spot location after missing several previous issues and my Mewtwo decided it had to be that one that runs despite landing 3 excellent, 4 great, 1 nice and 2 dud throws. It was at that moment the whole Ex Raid thing for me was over moving forward.
Further insult came on Saturday when Passes were issued for another location I’d done 4 Raids at and find out a couple of friends had only done the one I did and they all got an Ex Pass.
From now one I will no longer waste my Raid Passes/Coins doing Raids on Ex Pass eligible Gyms for rubbish throw away Pokemon just because it’s a chance to get an Ex Raid Pass. I will only do Raids for Pokemon I want and if it happens to be on the right Gym whoopee do. I couldn’t care now if I never get a Mewtwo.
