Niantic has apologized for recent frustrations with EX Raid invitations and offered new clarification about how to get invited. Invite-only EX Raids (currently the only way to obtain Mewtwo in the game) can only take place at certain eligible gyms, and players are invited only if they’ve recently completed a raid at that gym. However, in a post on Pokemon Go’s official site, Niantic explained that the recent wave of invitations to Mewtwo raids were impacted by a bug that caused some players to be invited to gyms where they hadn’t raided in several months.

Meanwhile, the new War Mode map is just more of the same – which is mostly a good thing. (Read the full Call of Duty: WWII review here.) Of the new standard maps, Valkyrie is the smallest. Shotguns, a well-timed grenade, and the new Resistance Division class (included with a free update launched…

Hearthstone’s 10.2 patch update is now live, and with it are some long-awaited balance changes. Hearthstone’s meta in the last couple of months has been defined by a number of incredibly high power level decks; tempo decks that can put a mountain of stats on the board quickly, can recover efficiently from board wipes and can create swing turns out of nowhere; and Highlander Priest, a deck that utilises Shadowreaper Anduin and Raza the Chained to turn every card into additional damage. In the right hands it’s a deck capable of bursting for 30 damage or more in a single…
