  1. i've also been voted to kick multiple times in the showdown series...never a majority vote though so not a problem so far...i just assumed it's because I often get mvp...on the mic, I get the "you must have no life" (i'm rank 200+), "dead eye!", "snake oil!", "varmint rifle!", "bolt action!", "lancaster!", "mauser!", "sawed off!", "explosive rounds!", "hacker!" and the list goes on... it would seem some people don't realize rdo was released at the same time for all of us...yes, I (and many of my psn friends) chose to put time into it to level up, unlock all kinds of gear, and gain knowledge and experience in mp...apparently, more experienced players are expected to adjust their play style to the lowest rank players in the lobbies to be "fair" or they risk getting criticized or kicked... rather than be offended by all this nonsense, I take it as a compliment and just ignore the negativity... after all, i'm just having fun and think it would be a shame to let it ruin my experience...who knows?...maybe the people complaining/voting to kick are just having a bad day/existence and want to vent on whoever or whatever they can... side note: this anger towards veterans of a said game is nothing new...also happened to me often, roughly a decade ago, in gta iv mp...i've always been one to admire and try to mimic/compete with the better players but not everyone has this mentality...to each their own... tl: dr...just ignore it...it means you're a certified bada$$!...
  2. I would imagine it includes the whole upcoming weekend, yes...
  3. just a heads up: there's a 20% xp bonus on all online activities this week for any interested...that's 1/5 less effort to level 50...
  4. makes a lot of sense and I wholeheartedly agree; gaming sessions are the way to go...my favourite site feature, as a matter of fact...official boosting thread mystery -> solved...thanks...
  5. I like the lack of boosting threads since the gaming sessions here are pretty epic...saves jumping around the site and reading over multiple thread pages to find compatible partners...the ability to see everyone's time zones, progress, and post messages/links is great...for lengthier/ongoing sessions, if someone never shows up or is disruptive, delete them from the session and move on...the current format offers very simple organizing in an eye-pleasing manner which I find boosting threads can not do nearly as well or efficiently...for sessions that require multiple days, a good host can prove their dedication by updating in the session itself and bumping the date ahead regularly...host sucks?...all good... just create your own session and run it how you see fit... the funny thing though is that some games actually have boosting threads...never quite understood why...examples:
  6. to be specific...car jack city, team car jack city, cops 'n crooks, turf war, and the teamplayer trophy will require 4 minimum...team deathmatch and team mafiya work will require 3 minimum...all else can be done with 2...i recommend an active partner for fly the co-op as well...some very experienced players are able to pass bomb da base ii and deal breaker solo but it is highly discouraged for those with minimal experience...the guide linked in the above post is fact checked regularly, is up-to-date, and all methods and jntel are still 100% accurate...enjoy...
  7. reputation is one of the most important parts of the site imo...why?...well, the site seriously lacks the colour green and the reputation stat balances it out quite nicely...without it this page would only have "reply to user" that shows green...the home page would be "update user" and the word "boosting" in the sessions only...guides sadly only have the "add favourite" green box...forum profiles would be bland without reputation green...and the list goes on... that being said, I think the 10 point non-premium and 25 premium member point limits are fine but please, help keep the site beautiful...give out rep wherever possible...for some it might be epeen green, but for others it keeps the forums flowing and clean...
  8. yes, someone has recently tested it and it seems to be a no-go...waiting on final confirmation...
  9. i came up with a super simple solution many years ago...rather than identify with it as a "backlog", I simply substituted in "amazing collection of games to last a lifetime" and voila...the freedom to play whatever, whenever, however without a care in the world is truly blissful...
  10. I buy mostly physical games...keep everything...they will get passed on to my kids at some point should they want them...have set aside a ps3 for each of them already with hundreds of games...planning on grabbing a couple ps4s at some point but waiting to see if a new model is released at some point that outperforms the pro... they've already inherited the wii with a bunch of classic games we bought ages ago when we lived in japan...only crappy part is it is region-locked...useful in keeping up on their japanese skills though (they were born there and my wife takes them to visit family every summer so important for them to stay fluent and literate)...at ages 5 & 7, a very age-appropriate console for them... also have an original xbox with a gazillion games that I might set up as a first console in a few years since it has tons of couch co-op games...thinking it might be best for our kids to play this way for a bit before allowing them into the online gaming world...
  11. i would recommend just not looking for this type of content before release...from my experience, it's pretty easy to avoid (have personally never come across a spoiler for any game) so I vote, "just get over it" ... side note: excellent punctuation...
  12. hopefully this non-response is all good...currently working on nothing with regards to trophies...playing rdo with friends...working towards recipe pamphlets, horses, gold plating all weapons, awards, leveling up all ability cards, and general badassery improvements...lots of fun despite all the glitchiness and limited content...online co-op is awesome with friends...
  13. as far as multiple consoles you will be busy...there is an idle kick timeout and you will occasionally need to be active with all controllers for some trophies if boosting...i have 3 consoles but only used one with a turbo controller as my split screen (for treasure hunting and some kill-related ones)...the rest I did with just one account... remember back in the day when multiplayer was free, microtransactions didn't exist, and you could unlock everything simply by playing the game?...well, not sure how active the servers currently are but the uncharted games fall into these categories and did mp right imo...epic stuff...highly recommended...the co-op in particular was awesome for both games...i also really like the plunder mode... if you want 100%, it is totally boostable but can be quite time consuming and can require co-ordinating large groups at times...this is also dependent on your skill buildup, teammates' competency, and how much you will enjoy the game...i'd say go for it and don't stress too much about the trophies...the only thing I remember being annoying were the final few treasures in uncharted 3...4 words of advice...hunter...arena...split...screen...haha...enjoy...
  14. haha...funny to think that the #1 person may not have eaten or bathed for a plat...the things some do for trophies, aye?...gratz on your success (and on doing it grimelessly and on a full stomach at that)...
  15. if we read between the lines and take the latter statement as truth then it might be safe to assume that the cheat detection on this site is a tad flawed for cases like this...there has been no statement that doing this is in fact illegitimate or against site leaderboard rules...just "hard to discern from cfw use"...hence, from my understanding, the discouragement as you might find yourself with a flag by default... fortunately, you have created a thread outlining the game you intend to play and the reason for playing it offline and/or on another user...we know your start date must be some time around now so hopefully all the flag team would need to do is look at your time stamps and clear a flag should all trophies be in order...that being said, it might be wise to avoid this method since the team in charge of flags are volunteers who put a lot of effort in keeping cheaters off the leaderboards (some also appear to have a bias against gamers with 100% profiles, for no apparent reason...haha...) and it makes their task of detecting actual cheaters more difficult...have I understood this right?...
