EX raids have caused huge upheaval in the world of Pokémon GO. The hype around the EX raids only continues to grow with each passing day. If you still don’t know what the EX raids are, this is a small description of them
These raids are invite-only Raids and in order to participate, you must defeat a Raid Boss at the Gym where the EX Raid will be take place. After finishing the raid, you will be rewarded with an EX Raid Pass. So right now an EX pass is priceless.
But, the EX raids have caused a few problems for trainers. Many of the trainers have created multiple accounts in order to get an EX raid pass. This is severely affecting the other players and that too in a bad way.
A redditor shared his own experience about the multiple account thing. Here is what the post:
“A lot of people in my local raid group received EX passes for tomorrow at Sprint stores. Problem is, it’s actually fewer people than passes, because many of them are people with multiple accounts”.
One player, for instance, received five passes on their different alt accounts, three at one location and two at another. That’s four passes taken away from other players who could have potentially had a shot. This is also hurting our team groups.
The problem we ran into, though, is that we don’t have enough people on their main accounts, so they can’t pull their weight in a smaller group. Someone using a level 15 account with a CP 1000 Pinsir as their top counter is basically dead weight.
It’s always bugged me that raids have made multi-accounting more acceptable (even encouraged!) but now that they are taking away opportunities for legit players by getting multiple passes at once for one person, and dragging down other players, it’s particularly bad.”
