Although previous maintenance periods ended ten to twenty minutes earlier, it’s quite possible for the maintenance period to be extended. This is especially true in this case, as they will be implementing a whole new patch with a lot of content.

It’s also important to note that thirty minutes before the maintenance begins, players will not be able to use the Home World Transfer Service and the Date Center Travel System. Players will have to wait until after the maintenance period to use these features again.

The game is not the only FFXIV feature that will be entering maintenance. The Companion App, The Lodestone, as well as the Online Store and Mog Station, will also enter maintenance. Their maintenance periods, however, differ. The Companion App will enter maintenance at the same time as the All Worlds Maintenance, at 3:00 AM PDT, and will end at 9:00 PM PDT of the same day. The Lodestone follows afterward, entering maintenance at 8:00 PM PDT on October 2, 2023. Finally, the Online Store and Mog Station will follow, entering maintenance on October 3, 2023, at 12:00 AM PDT. The Lodestone, Online Store, and Mog Station maintenance will all end at the same time as the All Worlds Maintenance.

This patch will bring in the latest content to FFXIV’s Endwalker expansion. As mentioned above, this will be the last major patch for Endwalker. It will introduce new Main Scenario Quests, a new dungeon, a new trial, the final Endwalker Alliance raid, and more. To have an idea about what to expect in this patch, you can check out our summaries for Live Letter 78 and Live Letter 79. These live letters cover the overview of the upcoming patch.

That’s all the news we have about the upcoming FFXIV 6.5 maintenance. Check out our gaming news articles for the latest in gaming news.

Clefairy Mass Outbreak Pokemon Event

There are a lot of new things that Pokemon Trainers can do in The Pokemon Company’s latest video game, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. Aligned with the new DLC that was released recently, The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero: Part 1 The Teal Mask, there was a lot of great content that Pokemon Trainers can enjoy like the announcement of Hisuian Decidueye being ported over and available in the game via Raid Battle, we are also introduced to the first ever Pokemon Mass Outbreak event with tons of Clefairy celebrating the Harvest Moon festival. Details on the Clefairy Mass Outbreak event are listed below.

Pokemon Mass Outbreak Event

What is the Harvest Moon Event?

The Harvest Moon event is the full moon that appears near the September Equinox. With this year’s supermoon, you will be able to see the moon as large and as nice as it will be, making its appearance on September 29, 2023. The Pokemon Company celebrates this event with the Clefairy Mass Outbreak within its latest video game, just like how Clefairy would gather in certain areas of Mt. Moon to do moon viewing in the Pokemon anime.

Clefairy Mass Outbreak Details

From September 28, 2023, until October 1, 2023, Mass Outbreaks of Clefairy will be very prominent and you don’t need to have the DLC in order to participate, these will appear around the areas of both Paldea and Kitakami in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. What makes this special for those that did not purchase the DLC, this will be the first and only time that you can capture this Pokemon as it cannot be found within the base version of the game. Within these lots of Clefairy during the Harvest Moon event, Pokemon Trainers will have a better chance of capturing one with the Upbeat Mark. With the provided odds that we have seen, there is a 1 in 20 or 5% chance that you will be able to catch this specific Clefairy that possesses the mask.

How to join the Festivities?

To join the Clefairy Mass Outbreak event, you should connect to the internet from the menu by pressing the L Button.

Will there be a Shiny Clefairy?

Shiny Pokemon are very hard to find and would require a lot of patience, resets, and Poke Balls in order to complete. You would find it harder to catch Shiny Pokemon that are actually capable of escaping battles with certain moves or by simply fleeing.

With the Outbreak spawning a lot of Clefairy at a time, take note that there is a chance that one of these Clefairy that you might encounter can be a Shiny variant. Since mass outbreaks in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet feature an increased spawn rate of a specific Pokemon, this is the perfect time to hunt for a Shiny Clefairy!

To help you in this Shiny hunt, make sure to create and consume Sparkling Power Sandwiches. These sandwiches would usually require at least 2 Herba Mystica (which you can get from 5-Star to 7-Star Tera Raid Battles) and a minimum of one other ingredient – It can be Tofu, Pickle, Prosciutto, Green Bell Pepper, Ham, Bacon, Cherry Tomatoes, Red Onion, Hamburger, Red Bell Pepper, Cucumber, Lettuce, Yellow Bell Pepper, Onion, Klawf Stick, Avocado, Smoked Fillet, or Tomato. In this particular Shiny hunt, the best sandwich would be the Sparkling Power: Fairy Lvl 3 Sandwich which consists of the following ingredients:

  • Basil x1
  • Tomato x1
  • Sweet Herba Mystica x1
  • Spicy Herba Mystica x1

This would yield Sparkling Power: Fairy Lvl 3 with a Title Power: Fairy Lvl 3 and a Raid Power: Fairy Lvl 3.

Eating this sandwich during the Clefairy Mass Outbreak event would significantly raise your chances of encountering a Shiny Clefairy in the whole lot. Also, consuming this particular sandwich would increase the odds of you being able to encounter a Clefairy with the Upbeat Mark as well as increasing the odds of finding a Clefairy with multiple marks.

Don’t let this opportunity pass to get your very own Clefairy with the Upbeat Mark! There is only a 1/100 chance that you will find one in the wild. Increase your chances of acquiring this within the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Clefairy Mass Outbreak in celebration of the Harvest Moon festival.

For more on the latest updates, news, and events on anything and everything Pokemon like this Clefairy Mass Outbreak Pokemon Event in Scarlet and Violet, make sure to check in from time to time here on ClutchPoints Gaming! We have tons of Pokemon content for you to consume.

Best of luck on the Shiny Clefairy hunt, Trainers!

Pokemon x Van Gogh Collaboration

One of the most popular franchises in the world, Pokemon, has made its mark on the world and its success has led to a lot of surprising partnerships and collaborations with various brands, companies, and now, even into the art world. We’ve seen how Pokemon TCG is one of the companies best in terms of art, hiring the best artists to depict each of the 1,000+ Pokemon’s personalities and traits. The Pokemon franchise has always made its mark when it comes to art – Whether it be in the form of its shows, merchandise, or trading cards. Art has always been a critical part of the company and this time around, we are blessed to see Pokemon and the Van Gogh Museum exhibit our favorite Pocket Monsters in the style of Van Gogh, starting September 28, 2023, until January 7, 2024. Read more below and we’ll tell you how to get the limited edition Pikachu with Grey Felt Hat in the style of Van Gogh.

Pokemon at Van Gogh’s Permanent Collection

Pokemon went into a partnership with the Van Gogh Museum to celebrate its 50th anniversary and shares that this official collaboration aims to introduce new audiences to the work of Vincent Van Gogh. The Van Gogh Museum aims to get youth more interested in the works of art that are in the permanent collection and would love to have that conversation going abuzz with the addition of one of the most popular and recognizable franchises in the world. If the partnership would be able to get that across and would deliver to make these new audiences think about art, then they have successfully made their point.

In the Van Gogh Museum, you will find several pieces that are on display from its Pokemon art exhibit. These art pieces are all inspired by some of Van Gogh’s most popular works from the permanent collection and are made by the artists that are over at The Pokemon Company. As of the moment, you will be able to see Pikachu art piece that is actually inspired by Self Portrait with Grey Felt Hat (1887), the Pokemon Sunflora is hidden in a variant of Van Gogh’s famous Sunflowers (1889), and you can see Snorlax together with Munchlax relaxing in a work inspired by The Bedroom (1888). There is also an Eevee feature in another self-portrait-inspired work as well as Zubat hanging around in a piece that is inspired by the Wheatfield with Crows.

How to get a Pikachu with Grey Felt Hat

What is Pokemon TCG if not are pieces that you can take home to adore, right? With a lot of artists that contributed to the different works of art into Pokemon Cards, it totally made sense that this collaboration between the two was done. The Pokemon Company has decided to extend this collaboration and create a Pikachu in the style of Van Gogh with the Pikachu Self-Portrait with Grey Felt Hat Pokemon TCG Card but be warned, it is not as easy as showing up to the museum and purchasing one.

For you to be able to secure a Pikachu with Grey Felt Hat that is inspired by Vincent Van Gogh’s Self-Portrait work, Pokemon Trainers and fans are to complete the tasks that are provided in the Pokemon Adventure leaflet. This will lead them to see the works of art that inspired the art pieces that are at the Pokemon art exhibit. Once participants have completed the Pokemon Adventure leaflet tasks, they are to hand them in in exchange for the special Pikachu x Van Gogh Museum promo card.

The Van Gogh Museum has kindly provided more specific instructions for the Pokemon Adventure that takes place in their exhibit and states:

  1. Book a museum ticket between September 28, 2023, and January 7, 2024.
  2. Get yourself a copy of the Pokemon Adventure at the museum’s Information Desk in the Atrium.
  3. Complete the answers and hand in your copy at the Information Desk. Only then will you be able to receive a special Pikachu Pokemon promo card.

Take note that if you are to visit The Van Gogh Museum for the Pokemon Art Exhibit, you may only complete one Pokemon Adventure Leaflet that will yield you one Pikachu with Grey Felt Hat promo card. You can however purchase this card online via The Pokemon Center. This includes other Pokemon merchandise besides Pokemon’s mascot, Pikachu, that are also inspired by Vincent Van Gogh’s style and works of art.

Pokemon Merchandise in Van Gogh Style Art for Sale

Pokemon’s mascot is not the only Pokemon that gets the Van Gogh merchandise treatment. Other Pokemon like Eevee, Sunflora, Snorlax, Munchlax, and Smeargle are also available in the style of Van Gogh’s art. Pokemon TCG has featured these particular works of art in Card Sleeves, Playmats, Puzzles, and a whole lot more. Additionally, they have released t-shirts, bags, posters, and plushies with the same treatment as the other merchandise under the collaboration. If you are eyeing to get any of these special Pokemon x Van Gogh merchandise, US and UK fans are in for a treat as this will be made available via the Pokemon Center. Details are to be announced soon.

Brawl Stars – Clubs Receiving Massive Change Soon

It seems like Clubs might finally get some big changes in Brawl Stars. For some time, Supercell focused a lot of their development time on Gears, Hypercharge abilities, new brawlers, and more. But since the last Brawl Talk, it seems the developer has some ideas in mind for the game’s biggest social aspect, Clubs. So, what are the big changes coming to Clubs? Let’s dive right in and find out.

Brawl Stars Clubs – Massive Feature Getting Removed As Supercell Sets Sights On Improvements

Brawl Stars released a new post today across YouTube, X, and other platforms to remind fans of some of the big changes coming to Club League and Club Games. In the post, they talked about how the new changes should benefit players in the future. The biggest change to Brawl Stars’ Clubs is the removal of the Club Shop, which takes place during the next update. Let’s look deeper:

  • Firstly, active club members in a FULL club will benefit more from the upcoming changes. So if you’re not in a Club yet, you should join one!
  • The Club Shop is LEAVING. You still have time to spend your Club Coins on Gold, Power points, and Skins until the next update.
    • However, any unspent Club Coins get automatically converted to Gold (50% split)

Additionally, the developers did announce in the last Brawl Talk that were considering some changes to the overall game itself. Do they need to release chromatic brawlers every season? Does a bi-monthly pass really work? We’ll see how they address these changes in future updates.

We’re going to be honest and say we’re excited, yet cautious about the new changes coming. Typically, whenever Brawl Stars announces something new, it seems to favor Pay-To-Win players at first. Over time, the developers do tweak these issues and make it more fair, but it happens nonetheless. Hopefully, the next update provides benefits for both F2P and players who spend money on gems.

The latest Season, Back To Ranger Ranch, added new hypercharge abilities, a new chromatic brawler, and plenty of new balance changes. We’re excited to see what the new changes to Brawl Stars’ Club League and Games system.

Madden 24 Week Player Ratings Update After Week 3

The Madden 24 Week 4 Roster update dropped last night, with an update to several player ratings. Each roster update usually drops just before the Thursday Night Football game, and this week was no exception. Typically, these roster updates adjust player ratings and rosters depending on trades, player performances, injuries, and more. As we mentioned in our Week 4 Roster Update Release Date story, player likeness won’t get updated until later on down the road.

Week 4 Player Rating Updates For Madden 24

Multiple players saw adjustments in their OVRs this past week. Many players saw an increase in OVRs why some players lost some points due to poor play. Let’s start off with the former:

Madden 24 Player Ratings Week 4 (Rising)

  • Tua Tagovailoa (Miami Dolphins)  – 87 OVR (+2)
    • The AFC player of the month got off to a great start this season with over 1,000 passing yards, 8 touchdowns, and only two picks in three games. His 71.3% completion percentage puts him in the top 5 rankings in that category. Additionally, Tagovailoa receives +4 to his awareness, +2 to his deep throw accuracy, and +1 to his medium throw accuracy
  • T.J. Watt (Pittsburgh Steelers) – 97 OVR (+1)
    • Watt and the Steelers defense is the only reason the team is 2-0 right now. With 6 sacks in three games, the AFC Defensive Player of the Month once again is gunning for that single-season sack record. We think he might need a spot in the 99 Club soon if he keeps it up.
  • Raheem Mostert (Miami Dolphins) – 82 OVR (+2)
    • Mostert has already scored seven touchdowns this season, more than some players will get the whole year, and we’ve only had three weeks of football. While we’re sure many fans are buzzing about Devon Achane right now, Mostert’s performance this season can’t go unnoticed. He had a rough showing against L.A. in week 1, but he’s shown up since then.
  • Tank Dell (Houston Texans) – 75 OVR (+2)
    • The rookie WR is off to a hot start this year, already forming a connection with C.J. Stroud early on. He gets targeted seven times a game, averaging 16.7 yards per catch. Houston’s offense steadily shows improvement every week, and Dell is part of the reason why.
  • Other players who received boosts to their OVR include:
    • Maxx Crosby (Las Vegas Raiders) – 95 OVR (+1)
    • Jessie Bates (Atlanta Falcons) – 94 OVR (+1)
    • Terron Armstead (Miami Dolphins) – 93 OVR (+2)
    • Justin Herbert (L.A. Chargers) – 90 OVR (+2)
    • Keenan Allen (L.A. Chargers) – 90 OVR (+1)
    • Micah Hyde (Buffalo Bills) – 90 OVR (+1)
    • Charvarious Ward (San Francisco 49ers) – 89 OVR (+1)
    • Rashan Gary (Green Bay Packers) – 89 OVR (+1)
    • Danielle Hunter (Minnesota Vikings – OVR 88 (+1)
    • Kenneth Walker III (Seattle Seahawks) OVR 88 (+1)
    • Talanoa Hufanga (San Francisco 49ers – 88 OVR (+1)
    • Trey Hendrickson (Cincinnati Bengals) – 88 OVR (+1)
    • Jevon Holland (Miami Dolphins) – OVR 87 (+2)
    • James Conner (Arizona Cardinals) – 80 OVR (+2)
    • De’Von Achane (Miami Dolphins) – 78 OVR (+3)
    • Alim McNeil (Detroit Lions) – 74 OVR (+2)
    • Keeanu Benton (Pittsburgh Steelers) – 74 OVR (+2)
    • Dawand Jones (Cleveland Browns) – 70 OVR (+2)
    • Ronnie Bell (San Francisco 49ers) – 69 OVR (+1)
    • Rasheed Walker (Green Bay Packers) – 66 OVR (+2)
    • Jonathan Harris (Denver Broncos) – 63 OVR (+2)

Now let’s check out some of the players whose rating decreased this past week:

Madden 24 Player Ratings (Falling)

  • Josh Allen (Buffalo Bills) – 93 OVR (-1)
    • Perhaps the Madden curse continues once again? Josh Allen likes to turn over the ball, but he usually does so because he makes up for it with big performances. However, outside of the Raiders game in week 2, Allen’s been all picks but no points. For the second time this year, he sees a decrease in his OVR. However, the Bills just came off two impressive wins, so fan’s shouldn’t be too worried right now.
  • Lamar Jackson (Baltimore Ravens) – 89 OVR (-1)
    • Remember when Jackson said he wanted to throw for “like 6,000 yards”? He’s on pace to throw a little over half of that amount. Unfortunately, it seems Todd Monken’s new offensive style hasn’t changed too much in Baltimore. Jackson still relies on his feet a bit too much, running over 10 times a game. Additionally, the injury bug hasn’t helped Baltimore’s offense, either.
  • Dak Prescott (Dallas Cowboys) – 87 OVR (-1)
    • I guess you could say Dalvin is… Cooked? Jokes aside, Cook hasn’t played well, but then again, neither has the Jets’ offense. Outside of Breece Hall’s performance against the Bills, no RB on this roster has played well. It might be time to consider a change at QB, so that the whole offense could get rolling.
  • Tyler Lockett (Seattle Seahawks) – 87 OVR (1)
    • Tyler Lockett’s game winning touchdown catch against the Lions means nothing when your other two games haven’t been meaningful. While the Seahawks offense is off to a relatively good start this year, Lockett seems to be getting left out. While Kenneth Walker III, D.K. Metcalf, and Geno Smith lead the pack, Lockett remains a quiet but valuable option. He just turned 31, and it seems father time might be catching up.
  • Other players who lost points to their OVR:
    • DeAndre Hopkins (Tennessee Titans) – 89 OVR (-1)
    • Dak Prescott (Dallas Cowboys) – 85 OVR (-2)
    • Dameon Pierce (Houston Texans) – 80 OVR (-2)
    • Darnell Mooney (Chicago Bears) – 79 OVR (-1)
    • JC Jackson (L.A. Chargers) – 78 OVR (-4)
    • Quez Watkins (Philadelphia Eagles) – 73 OVR (-2)
    • BJ Ojulari (Arizona Cardinals) – 70 OVR (-1)

And that’s all the new changes for the Madden 24 Player Ratings Update after week 3. Overall, the developers made some interesting changes, but nothing too drastic. We still got a whopping 14 games left to see your favorite players rise in their ratings.
