Niantic have announced that trainers will be able to get hold of 8 free Raid Passes in Pokemon Go.

Three of them are available to get right now. Much like the single free Raid Passes trainers have become accustomed to, they can be found in the Pokemon Go Shop.

Here’s how to get those 3 free Remote Raid Passes:

  1. Load up the Pokemon Go app
  2. Hit the menu (Pokeball at the bottom of the main screen)
  3. Click ‘Shop’
  4. Hit the ‘3 Remote Raid Passes’ box and click exchange to get them added to your inventory
Free Raid Pass Pokemon Go ShopThree free Raid Passes can be found in the Pokemon Go Shop until November 1…

Make sure you get them soon though, as the offer will expire on Sunday, November 1, 1pm PDT (4pm EDT, 9pm GMT).

The sporadically available free Remote Raid Passes can still be found. We’d recommend getting that one first, if available, because you can’t get it when you have three or more already.

Alolan Marowak Raid Day

If you’re an avid ‘Raid Battler’ and those three aren’t enough for you then don’t worry, there will be an additional five (yes that’s right, 5) available throughout the special Alolan Marowak Raid Day.

This takes place from Saturday, October 31 from 11am to 5pm in your local time. During this event you’ll be able to get five free Raid Passes (not the Remote variety) simply by spinning gyms.

It isn’t clear whether you’ll be able to get five at one time but presumably, you’ll have to use it before getting another. With so many Raids happening however, we doubt that’ll be an issue.

It is also worth noting that the Raid Passes don’t have to be used on Alolan Marowak, although you may find it harder than usual to find the particular Raid Boss you’re after.

Usually Raid Passes/Remote Raid Passes cost 100 PokeCoins each (250 if you get them in a bundle of three) so making the most of these free ones is well worth doing!

League of Legends

Riot dev responds to broken League damage bug with Ravenous Hydra

A Riot Games developer has responded to a bizarre bug in League of Legends, which is preventing the Ravenous Hydra from working with certain champions’ abilities in-game.

Riot Games introduced plenty of changes in the 2021 preseason patch such as completely revamping the League Item Shop and items to improve the game’s experience before Season 11 kicks off.

Ravenous Hydra is one of the items that has remained in League, but it received some updated stats amid the changes. The item still provides players with lifesteal, in the form of Omnivamp, but Riot has now removed the Crescent Active and added 20 Ability Haste in its place.

However, one thing that has not changed much is the item’s passive ability Cleave, which allows basic attacks and abilities to trigger extra damage, which varies based on the distance between targets.

Urgot's splash artLeague players called for a Ravenous Hydra fix after a glitch was found with champions like Urgot.

There are some champions with abilities that had unique interactions with this item, such as Aphelios’ Severum Q, but players have now noticed a bug, which stops it from working correctly with certain champions.

The issue was raised with League dev Riot Phlox, with one Redditor explaining that champions with multi-hit abilities, like Urgots W, Renekton W, and Warwick’s Ult seem to be where the problem lies.

Riot Phlox responded to the bug, revealing that they are now aware of the unusual damage glitch with Ravenous Hydra and that it would be passed on to the League Dev team.

“I’ll pass this along so we can make sure there are eyes on it, thanks!” the League dev responded, confirming they would soon be working on it.

However, he also revealed that he was unsure just when a fix might be issued for this broken damage bug, adding that they “can’t give a timeframe.”

While it is unclear when the patch will arrive in League of Legends, this will still come as good news to Urgot mains, and those who play similar champs, after they were quite vocal on this issue, as it will soon allow them to have more build options in-game.
