  1. yes to your questions...I was in the same boat as you were, started breach first before any other part of the game with very little knowledge and not much guidance hence the previous post...hopefully the above sort of walkthrough will make sense once you start it up and make the breach stuff a bit less painful despite the need for a mini grind to get set up properly...if not, feel free to ask for further clarifications...
  2. not sure if this helps...I copy and pasted it from another thread from awhile back: i used a 2nd user on my ps4 and redid stockade 001 over and over unlocking stealth cloaking asap and then stealthing the mission repeatedly in like 10 seconds while spamming my main account time challenges...because I was leveling up due to the high xp earned for stealthing this mission I was earning praxis kits each level quickly...the praxis can be exchanged in the in game store for keys which unlock 4 more challenges per key...meaning I could send another 4 my main account's way each time I leveled up....you can also buy keys for like 10 000 in game currency so I would do that as well...this allowed me to earn keys faster than my challenges ran out...by the time I stopped ranking up and ran out of money, meaning no more keys therefore no more challenges to send, I had sent my main account 55 challenges...all in one day...all I had to do was complete the challenges in 8 seconds-ish (about 30 seconds with results screen, loading) with my main account and reap the 55 victory booster rewards...this allowed me to buy ripper packs worth 200 000 which contain the best loot...this also leveled up my main account a ton with tons of items to use...my recommendation would be to focus on levelling up a battle rifle to the max...you won't need much of the other stuff so most of it can be exchanged for parts...this might seem like gibberish but you'll likely understand if/when you play it... then it was just a matter of going through all the rest of the levels which don't take too long if you use the stealth cloak combined with the "infinite energy" glitch (check a guide)...energy powers the cloak so basically infinite cloaking...i found the secret server ones the hardest of the group but thankfully there are only 5 or 6 levels to do...the others are pretty repetitive with only a few variations of mission style...
  3. rarely...since I've joined the site I've probably checked only about a few dozen profiles...most of them related to a forum topic or gaming session and usually with the intent of looking for something specific...more often than not, the latter is gta iv related...other people's trophies really don't interest me in the least...come to think of it, I rarely even check my own profile unless I'm actively working on a game...I do enjoy browsing the forums here though...
  4. there are certain games that I would like to see whitelisted but aside from that I think the 3-strike rule is fair and that cheated trophies should not be allowed back on the leaderboards...I don't think the onus should be on site staff to remediate such actions by having to watch and decide on the authenticity of playthroughs of cheaters re-earning trophies as was suggested here...it should be on the player...meaning, if you regret cheating when you were 12 and don't want hidden trophies on your account, take responsibility, start a new profile, and don't cheat...no need to make the system better imo, it's already good enough...
  5. can't say I'm overly familiar with these types of threads but wouldn't there be a conflict of interest if the site has paid advertisers and some members are using the forums as a form of free advertising?...or is this not applicable?... I think since sites like this have existed there have always been people who care more about likes, views, subs, etc. than actually sharing accurate intel to help out the community...sounds like this has become profitable for some so it's not surprising that they would also try to exploit potential ad venues...seems like it would be tricky for site mods to determine if the knowledge shared is actually useful or only an attempt at self-promotion...I have no issues with people providing supplementary help to the community though I do recognize that some threads could be considered as spam if the only intention is to attract "customers"...a potential solution would be to lock such threads and ask the op to include further info...I don't like the idea of an all out instant removal policy since it's possible some people are just trying to help and simply don't have the best approach in doing so...
  6. this method is out-of-date...no need for toothpicks or holding the aim button down... yes...furthermore, the multiplayer guide on this site is up-to-date and fact checked regularly...it includes various tips on leveling up...here's the link if interested: https://psnprofiles.com/guide/3606-grand-theft-auto-iv-multiplayer-trophy-guide
  7. I'd recommend uploading it to youtube then embedding (share, copy/paste) the link here...sorry if i'm not mmde...
  8. I have no idea...i guess i don't really like being classified as either gamer a or gamer b...it has a tendency to just create unnecessary divisiveness...a relevant counter question would be to define quality games before being able to reply properly...I think some might consider the games I've played as garbage therefore I can't be a quality gamer...I also don't care about how many trophies I've acquired and I'm sure I'm way down on the leaderboards so I must not be a quantity gamer either...so what's option c?...I have an abundance of disposable income that allows me to buy games I think I'll enjoy while also trying out the occasional highly praised out-of-my-comfort-zone titles, play them at a pace that allows to me to balance all of my life's responsibilities satisfactorily, and enjoy experiencing everything a game has to offer...whether someone defines this as casual, or quality, or quantity, or avid, or completist, or trophy hunter, etc. gamer affects me very little...
  9. traditionally I thinks it's supposed to mean "not my style" but not sure that if that was intended or even makes sense here...for a "here's how" thread the advice given seems awfully non-specific...
  10. I agree with this and how the premise of this thread is odd...if you really want to play games that violate the lb rules, just play them...then you won't have to worry about opting out...the site mods will remove you and you can still use all the other great features psnp has to offer...you'll have the added bonus of not having to worry about being the target of elitism since no one but you will be able to browse your trophy profile...
  11. when I was 5, I played super mario bros on nes for weeks without ever using the jump "feature"...good times...made my controller last longer at least...
  12. both...that way I can drive any car...currently own two automatics since that's what's most commonly stocked at dealerships here...I wanted all the bells and whistles in my cars and the dealer had one that was automatic, the other has the option of both with paddle shifters as the 2nd option...
  13. if I've understood the theater mode method correctly then it entails watching a certain replay to get infected into the league necessary for the big leagues trophy...the part I'm not clear on is whether 5 matches need to be played afterwards or whether the trophy dings automatically upon infection...if the former, I would ask for it to be considered as a fair means of earning the trophy if it's a method that anyone would have access to with a regular ps3 and copy of the game...my offer above was to document the specifics of theater mode and to see if such a method would be considered acceptable in earning big leagues by psnp and its community... I think unobtainable trophies are kind of crappy and particularly when a platinum is prevented over a simple online one where the servers are still active but a specific feature has been shut down...as with the usage of cloned servers with gonespy, I like it when users come up with unique ideas to make such trophies available again while still maintaining the need to fulfill the original criteria...I'm not sure if the above big leagues method would qualify as something I would advocate for being acceptable means of earning the trophy or not at this point but I don't see any harm in investigating further...
  14. I have a bunch of alts with private trophies so I'm not too worried about flags or hiding trophies should that be necessary...
  15. 1 - you are correct... 2 - agreed... 3 - also agree but would like to reiterate that I hope someday these types of trophies would be considered for whitelisting and have a separate set of rules/repercussions... and lastly, if guinea pigs are needed to test and record how the method for big leagues could work, i'd be willing to participate...I own multiple copies of blops2 though I don't intend to ever actually play it fully...long story...
