  1. Oh; willkommen zurück und es ist schön wieder bekannte Gesichter zu lesen. Nach meiner langen Auszeit vom regulären Videospielen und dann nur noch Final Fantasy XIV; bin ich froh dem ein oder anderem noch im Gedächtnis geblieben zu sein. Auf eine gute neue gemeinsame Zeit!

  2. did you one ay unfollow me and now re-follow? Well, thanks for the follow anyway xD

  3. Do you solve puzzles with or without walkthroughs?
  4. There probably won't be that many, since most trophy buyers aren't ranked. I didn't consider that in my estimation.
  5. I'm not just claiming it. I know it, because I sold MANY mein leben trophies for years and I always had competition. I only sold legit trophies and since the full PS4 jailbreak I stopped selling trophies completely. Of course, I estimated, but based on data to which I have access and that I will not make public for obvious reasons. Just to be clear. Of course I will not name anyone who has bought from me or anyone who hasn't bought from me. So no one needs to ask me about this, not even privately. The reason why I shared this fact is because I think the community has a right to know that. Btw no one said over 50%. Since I wasn't the only one selling mein leben trophies, I gave a realistic estimation based on my data accumulated over 3 years. Of course, no one knows the exact numbers, but it's definitely a significant amount of purchased trophies.
  6. I set a new record on my secondary account @BigBossImBenz for fastest achiever and I always thought it would be pretty cool to be able to see how someone did it. So here's a video of how I did it and with this thread I want to encourage hunters who are aiming for the fastest achiever to do the same. So feel free to use this thread to post your video if you beat my record. ☺️ Video: Happy Hunting! 🏆
  7. Right! To be honest, I didn't think of it when I wrote my post. 😅 But still, the Vita can be hacked for a long time. But now the PS4 hacks are added, because there are surely a few hackers who just own a hacked PS4 and no hacked Vita. That would explain why the hacks are increasing. (assuming this assumption is true, of course) The Vita hacks alone couldn't explain that.
  8. Buying was always a thing and trophy sellers have no interest in stealing accounts. Either it is a normal statistical deviation or the reason is the PS4 jailbreak. The game hasn't been updated since 2018. No relevant tips have been shared since then. The Mein leben Runs thread is just a rehash of old tips. So the game didn't get any easier since 2018. The PS4 jailbreak in combination with the firmware downgrade is the only thing that has changed within the last year. This would also explain why other difficult PS4 games like SMB are becoming less rare.
  9. @AmazingNoeder Totally agree! The reason why the rarity has recently decreased is a combination of hacking and buying. Around October 2020 the firmware downgrade for the PS4 came and with it the complete jailbreak for the PS4. Since then, PS4 trophies are even flogged on eBay for sometimes very low prices. I think that is the main reason for this and the answer to the OP's question.
  10. Don't forget that many players have bought the platinum or at least the Mein leben trophy, which I can say for sure. This may be due to the PS4 jailbreak.
  11. Try not to think in games, try to think in leaderboards. The most effective way to rank up in the current leaderboard is to play a lot of easy and fast games like visual novels or "trash games". If we would implement a rarity leaderboard, the most effective way to rank up in it would be to manipulate the rarity of easy games with very few game owners. All that can be done about it are arbitrary rules to stop that. Be aware that every account that starts a game also affects the rarity leaderboard. Game owners would suddenly become relevant to rankings. For the current leaderboard, the game owners don't matter at all. If at some point everyone who plays a game balances the rarity with 19 inconspicuous fake accounts, the rarity leaderboards would become much more meaningless than the real ones.
  12. Thank you! ☺️ I actually plan to do that with most of my games. 😅
  13. Depends on the platinum achievers and it would be unwise to try to manipulate such a game. There are games that not even a hundred people have played. If you focus on such games you can even manipulate the leaderboard on a grand scale solo. My only point is that it is theoretically possible. With the current leaderboard it's not.
  14. I really don't care about rarity and that's why I voted no. Since many here have discussed how the rarity comes about I would like to share my opinion. I think that the rarity is made up of two factors (achievers & game owners) that are affected by: The inhibition to start a game and the inhibition to earn a specific trophy. Things that have a direct influence on the inhibition to start a game: price/accessibility attractiveness popularity caring about completion rate first trophy popping and more Things that have a direct influence on the inhibition to earn a specific trophy: required skill required effort/time broken game (buggy/unobtainable trophy) game is not fun additional equipment and more The higher the inhibition to earn a specific trophy, the more relevant for the rarity the inhibition to start a game becomes. The lower the inhibition to earn a specific trophy, the less relevant the inhibition to start a game becomes. The actual rarity of a game is a combination of the points mentioned above. Sometimes, however, only one point is decisive. That's why it's quite logical to me that opinions on the reason for the rarity vary so much in this thread. But you can never tell the reason for the rarity by the rarity itself and I think that's why I don't care about it. P.S. As much as I appreciate the intention, but I don't think a rarity leaderboard is a good idea, since it can be manipulated too easily with fake accounts.
