  1. Managed to finally get the plat tonight after putting a couple hours into practicing ST stacking a bit more for Ultra. I will say that Ultra SS is significantly easier than sprint with ST/ZT stacking. I was able to play so slow and methodically making sure I got things in the proper spot. I messed up once even and was able to recover so you don't even need to be perfect. Here is my video of it:
  2. That isn't true, you can get all clear, speed lvl 1 and gold tetriminos which provide 2x bonus score as beneficial effects. My SS run of mystery mode... i got like 3 or 4 all clears I think which gave huge amounts of points at speed lvl 15. It isn't very difficult to get the SS on it once you can play at speed lvl 15 without ever dying. You can also flip your controller upside down or sit upside down for the reversed effect which makes nothing difficult at all to deal with except sometimes you'll get garbage at the bottom of your stack in combination with a huge block that can be problematic.
  3. You have the Puyo Puyo Tetris plat done well before Tetris Effect though. I wouldn't expect anyone to get a 15 combo done within their first two days of playing Tetris Effect with 0 experience either. 4 wide well combo setup is a fairly advanced technique and it took me some time to master it. I wasn't capable of anything more than standard Tetris builds for several weeks when I started. It took me 300 hours to get my sprint down to 1:10 over the course of 3 months and my first ever sprint on Tetris Effect was about 2:50. Tetris skill gain is not linear though and everyone is different, but I personally found it very hard.
  4. Nice that you were able to get it done. I had been getting frustrated with the game a bit more lately so decided to take time off and play some other games. I came back today and put about 8 hours into sprint and finally got the SS though... but only barely with 1:09:71. I had missed it by less than a second a few times prior though so it was really nice to finally get it done. I just need to start practicing Ultra now for the platinum. I hope that it proves to be easier and less stressful than sprint was. Playing Tetris at high speeds is pretty stressful to me because you have to play perfectly while also pushing yourself to go faster. I did record a video of the sprint though. It might help give people trying for this trophy an idea of how well you need to play for SS in sprint since I did about the worst you can do and still get the SS.
  5. Hmm.. I may try changing the controller layout a bit to see if that helps me, main issue is messing with my muscle memory after I have put so much time into the game. I did improve my sprint to 1:11:18 tonight, it really hurt to not get that SS at the very last second literally, but I start thinking about the time too much and it slows me down. I downstacked too early though on that run and had to clear about 4 lines one by one and that cost me. I just wish it were easier to see lines remaining or the game had an audio call out or something so I don't do that. I also struggle to see the next piece queue at the bottom of the matrix so I prefer to play mid to high stack during sprint for as long as I can. Would be nice if they provided an option to enlarge the piece previews so I can see them with my peripheral vision more easily from all points in the matrix.
  6. I'd agree with the 300+ hours estimate. I am probably around 230ish hours of play and am about 4.5 seconds away from the 1:10 sprint. I do think that it will come soon though as I've had several attempts where I was on par for the time but I get nervous and lose my focus and start to slow down a lot. It is really unfortunate, but it is hard not to get nervous when you've been trying to do this for months. My biggest enemy is mainly misdropping though. I find it super difficult to get a clean sprint at high speeds with the d-pad due to how easy it is to hard drop by accident when just trying to tap left or right. I'll probably just teach myself ST stacking for Ultra. I don't really want to try to do it with just B2B Tetris because you need to clear about 100 lines to get that score doing that and I am not sure I can stay consistent for that long over 3 minutes given how frustratingly inconsistent I am in sprint. With ST stacking you only need about half that so you don't need to drop as many pieces or play as fast, you just need to know how to do it and not misdrop.
  7. A friend of mine did the SS everywhere trophy on an alternate account to test if you could do endless instead of the normal variation and he was able to pop the trophy only doing endless countdown. He also got the trophy only getting SS on beginner journey. If you leave your selection on top of the modes with endless variations it will eventually show you your endless score/rank as well. It flips back and forth when you highlight the mode in the Effects menu. Endless countdown/marathon are much easier than the normal variation. I only managed to get S but very close to SS on both of the normal variations so far, but got SS on both in endless mode my first try pretty much. Endless mystery isn't really any easier than the normal version since the mode is more luck based in whether you get beneficial effects because you can't hardly do any difficult line clears with all the garbage it throws at you. I am only needing SS in ultra and sprint for platinum right now. 5 seconds away from the sprint SS and its just so grueling to play at that speed on the controller. I have spent a ton of time playing this game (over 200 hours now since it came out in Nov.) as I had basically no Tetris experience back when I started in November, but there really isn't any easy way to get the sprint time without a ton of time investment into Tetris. This is easily one of the hardest trophies I've ever attempted, but its sorta frustrating because its so stupidly easy for people who have been playing Tetris for a long time haha.
  8. Was able to finish off the platinum this afternoon luckily now that the servers came back. Hopefully, the servers stay up and work correctly for anyone else wanting to go for this platinum. Didn't expect the servers to stop working for 4 days randomly in the middle of the boost which is kinda worrisome for the future of this game.
  9. There doesn't seem to be much rhyme or reason behind Sony's thought process regarding server shutdowns, but this year has seen a very rapid decrease in online support for PS3 across the board. I think it makes sense that Twisted Metal would receive an impending shut down; however, letting the servers just become unusable without any warning to the customer base like this is something that is a trophy hunter's worse nightmare. I've had it happen to me two times now with Guitar Hero Smash Hits and Twisted Metal. I would like to see this get fixed, but I am not hopeful due to the way Drawn to Death has been handled this year. Everyone knows that there are very obvious matchmaking issues in that game but Sony won't even look at what is going on to fix it. It seems like they don't even have someone on staff to monitor their server performance for these games. I find myself wondering why we're even paying them PS+ fees if they can't perform basic maintenance checks on their servers? It doesn't matter if the game is popular or not, they should be functional if they haven't otherwise announced an impending shut down date.
  10. Servers aren't closed, but they aren't functioning correctly to the degree that mostly all connections are being refused. Until this is fixed the ranked online trophies are impossible and this plat is unobtainable.
  11. As far as I can tell the servers have been broken since Friday without any warning. I can sign in very rarely but then I am unable to get signed into a splitscreen account or refresh statistics. There are no games going on either when I search. I eventually just get booted from the online after a few minutes. Most of the time I just get unable to connect to the servers so it seems that the online is unplayable until this is resolved.
  12. The "Your Worst Nightmare" trophy is possible to achieve in one playthrough of Ratchet and Clank: Into the Nexus. It will pop while fighting the final boss before you actually finish the game by defeating him. You could pause the game and take a break, fail the boss and do something else or whatever you feel like with your saves before finishing the game so there could feasibly be a difference in achievement times on that. It looks like his timestamps indicate a 30 minute difference which isn't impossible at all given what I just said. I remember when I did this trophy, I also achieved it on the final boss of my first playthrough.
  13. Same issue here. I earned 4 DLC trophies from Uncharted 3 and synced my trophies prior to updating my PSNP account. Now it seems my entire Uncharted 3 list is hidden.. and it isn't just PSNP either that is displaying me as having hidden trophies on U3. I checked my trophy list to make sure the trophies are still set to public on both PS3 and PS4 and they are as well.
  14. I just updated my profile earlier this evening and now mine won't load anything past 200 games oddly enough. Nothing I can do to fix it on my end it doesn't seem.
  15. PSN ID: Elegy PS Systems: Vita, PS3, PS4 Accepts Blank Friend Requests: I dislike blank requests. I prefer to know if it is from psn profiles at least. I may make an exception for someone who shares game interests/trophy hunting interests. I wouldn't mind having some more friends on the PS ecosystem as most of my gamer friends don't share my enjoyment of PS or trophy hunting. The PS4 activity feed is way too lonely
