  2. Rubberbanding is strong. Like, seriously strong, so you really can not treat this game like a normal racer. If you are playing a 3 lap race, you’re doing it right if after lap 1 you’re in 12-8, after lap 2 in 8-4, then in lap 3 USE ALL NITROS to catch up with top 3. This is because the game will allow you to catch up with them only on the final lap! Seriously, you can not get into 1st place on the first lap and hold it for the rest of the match, unless you’re playing early levels with a maxed car. The game will control when you’re allowed to pass an opponent (sometimes it reconfigures the AI position mid-match and you may have a car behind you zoom ahead slamming into the back of you until it gets passed and assumes whichever position the game wants it to be in - if this happens, move and let them pass). Spend your first lap going slower and picking up all coins (or learning track to then restart and pick up all coins). On the Tournament and Endurance modes, you can do the same and leave a few coins in the best place for the boost on the final lap. Save all nitros for the final lap. There are no exceptions. The straight leading to the start line and the beginning of is a good place to boost as it’s generally long enough to reap the full benefits and can sometimes overtake pole positions at that point of the last lap! You never need to brake. When you need to slow down, release R2 so you naturally lose some speed. You rarely encounter a sharp corner that you must slow down for (at max upgrades, there are about 10 or so of the 109 tracks that have horrible corners). This is mainly used on corners when there’s a bunch of cars blocking you, i.e. 4 cars on a narrow turn bumping into each other. When this happens, simply feather the accelerator, (lightly tap it and let go so you maintain you position behind them). Get super trophies as you go; you will remember the track better instead of coming back later. UPGRADES: 1: Acceleration - for when you collide with something, it will allow you to regain your speed faster. 2: Handling - better at cornering (later levels have very sharp turns) and makes your car easier to control. 3: Nitro - makes your nitro boost cover more distance for catching up to pole positions on your final lap. 4: Fuel - generally this can be ignored. Unless you actively avoid picking up fuel, you should always have enough fuel on the track so that running out isn’t an issue. This is still superior to top speed. TOP SPEED IS USELESS! - because of the rubberbanding, every AI opponent scales to your speed, making this stat meaningless. It doesn’t matter which car you choose in regards to their top speed. In fact, it may make the game HARDER because you start having to compete at a faster pace (especially so if your top speed is much greater than your handling for corners). BEST CARS NOTE: for the trophy of using every car once, I recommend completing a race with a new car every time you unlock one. This is so you don’t have to remember which ones you have already used (and it’s tedious to do ~30 races one after another at the end after you have unlocked them all). Order: Infinity -> Orient -> Ladybug/Nano -> Gentleman. Starting cars: Infinity. Soon after you can use Orient (unlocked after 1500 points). Once you have access to the Amateur tournament, finish all of them with gold for Ladybug. I virtually completed the entire game with this car. Later, I found the Nano just as good (1st place in all China races) and completed all my Endurance races with this car - very agile, high handling and acceleration too. Gentleman (unlocked after completing World Tour) for advanced players going for Master Tournament golds. I gained all of them relatively easily using this car. It has amazing handling, and an extra nitro for those pesky final laps, as well as a strong nitro stat. It’s terrible acceleration means you really need to know the game/tracks so you avoid collisions! Twilight for the speed (there’s a trophy for going 230mph). Master Tournament is definitely the hardest part of the game. Until the final lap, DO NOT use nitro, and do not be discouraged if you’ve crashed a lot - the came reconfigures the AI’s speed based on you (it’s amusing to see it happen). Once you reach the final lap, that’s when the hard work begins. You must get close to each car in front which will force them to use their nitro. On a straight, you can use a nitro too which you will overtake them. On a corner you can manoeuvre yourself around them as the AI will always slow down on corners. My observation was, if ONE of the top position AI uses a nitro, then NONE of the others will use one. It seemed as if only one AI at a time would use one. This meant if all three AIs were together, I sometimes saw 3rd use a boost and I would get passed him, then 2nd and 1st position would not, meaning I easily overtook all three. If I were overtaking them slower, then I would expect to see all three of them use a nitro as I approached them to overtake. For all the Tournaments, you must win via points OR draw but have won the final race. The AI positions remain the same throughout. If you are 1st, the same car will be 2nd, and if you come 2nd, that same car will come 1st - meaning it’s a two horse race! If you win-lose-win-lose you will come 2nd overall. If you win-lose-lose-win you will come 1st. This is because, even though you tied, you won the final race. A good run with the Gentleman usually was enough to grab the gold. I only encountered problems on one of the earlier cups (Brazil?) because it lacked enough track to catch up easily, and later China (because I subconsciously decided to suck). All the rest I could scrape through first try because of that fourth nitro! For Endurance races, they are much easier to maintain your lead in points because the game (unlike Tournaments) rearranges the AI positions so they will always end up with random amounts of points! These are my notes from getting platinum. It is a fun racer once you understand how it works. Think of being on par with your position after laps. Even when you collide with something and have to earn back that position, the game will allow you to do this very fast, meaning you can easily catch up to the position you were in. Many races you will feel you just about had enough time to get ahead for 1st. Sadly, for those of us that like skill-based racing, you HAVE TO ACCEPT that the game dictates what position you can be in. I hope this helps! Don’t get discouraged!
  3. @Se7en I said I'm not going to flag people for this. To my knowledge, you still have to survive 48 straight minutes (I think?) online.
  4. True Captain Sink 200 enemy ships in The Caribbean. Dreadnought Fully power up the Leviathan. Y'know, it is pretty wild that they went and made an AC IV like level that you barely have to play in the story. But ths grind was pretty annoying.
  5. On my current playthrough, Hero. On my 1st one, Eleven.
  6. I am sure that's the one i bought
  7. Hell yeah dude! Their new record is sick! \m/
  8. Really easy list. There's more GF trophies than I expected.
  9. I concur. You can’t start an opportunity and call it a day. You have to see it all the way through. For instance, in “World of Tomorrow” for “A Case Most Peculiar,” I disguised myself as the detective and that checked it off but I still had to go to the pier. As soon as I went back and did that the trophy popped. So no, not glitched, just ambiguous.
  10. Grunt down!- Beat a Grunt at the Colosseum
  11. Seeing as I (and several others I've boosted) have gotten the trophy when the bosses were shot early, I can confirm you're wrong. The trophy glitches quite often.
  12. JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven
  13. I can vouch for this! I killed the Ana on the initial lift, killed Mercy on the slam, and killed Hanzo with primary fire immediately after the slam. Thanks for the tip!! Edit: Weird it won’t let me upload the trophy screenshot 🤔
  14. hey, the trophy bug is going to be fixed in the v10.20 update! i messaged magyst and he actually replied, lmao it’s funny coz ‘lenny’ out of epic games said the bug had nothing to do with them. thank god it’s being fixed!
  15. the patch 10.20 come wensday or a day later. for the new lamas as well.
  16. Because of the YouTube videos from our debut concert we're starting to get requests to perform outside of our city. Looks like we're going on a micro tour in Oshawa next month.

      Sounds good! Going off your last couple posts, seems like things are really starting to take off for you.

      @RedRodriguez87 I've always been a bit of a cynic so I'm trying to keep positive but I can't help but worry about the bottom dropping out on us.

  17. Today
  18. That's odd. Does LEGO Batman only work if you try starting it multiple times? I ask that because you said you managed to get Arkham Origins to work after repeated attempts, and if that's the case maybe it could point towards a problem with the console itself (I'm no expert). Do you have another console around to test the discs on? Maybe from a friend or something.
  19. I couldn’t agree more. I found out for myself how it feels to stack and play meaningless games. Two years ago I said to hell with it because I wasn’t going to get any real serious value out of it. The only time I see myself doing region stacks is for something like Demon’s Souls. The game is fun, addicting and satisfying, so what’s wrong with playing it again? When 75 percent of your trophies are common and you’re just stacking six times for certain games, I have to wonder if you are playing to enjoy the games or you’re just inflating your trophy count. Most of it is crap that less than 1 percent of gamers give a damn about, cheap throwaway shovelware and hastily made indie games that are just there to make a quick buck off of the few people who will bother buying them for the trophies.
  20. Gauntlet & Arena you can't do in private matches
  21. This was pretty bad. 😨 😐 It's over. 😮
  22. i think u might be confusing this thread with the "advise a plat" thread lol @FLiiXxSz gimme that MVCI 👀
  23. Rewatching In Treatment. 

     

    This show is so damn good. Easily in the top 5 best HBO Shows

      Oh and Sopranos how could i forget my birthright!? Lol

    2. Dr_Mayus

      Dr_Mayus

      Ooh good list :D Although I have to waver a bit of Oz season 6...why was it so horrible :( Seasons 1-4 are amazing and 5 is good but damn that final season.

       

      Also I am a HUGE HBO fan but I still have not seen Pacific. Is it as good as Band of Brothers or Generation Kill (if you have seen either of those)?

       

      Also my top 5 would be


      The Wire

      Six Feet Under 

      Sopranos

      In Treatment

      Treme

  24. I don't know if shooting or not voids the medal/trophy, but I did with a very nice veteran on UC3 and his friend, it took only one try to get everyone trophy including that other trophy for not dying in coop-adventure map on crushing/hard. The strategy is to have to one guy with cluster bomb and one with army of 3. Since cluster bombs stacks to your grenade count each time you activate, you can easily have 4-5 cluster bombs if you exploit those chokers to get a lot of medals easily. Once 3 bosses get together in the already mentioned spot in this thread, one activates the AO3 and the other just chuckles cluster bombs after the other, no need to shoot them.
  25. Some of the trophies, like this one, don't pop until at the end of the chapter. 😶
