  1. By "Autosave feature" do you mean destroy 4 vehicles, suicide then re-load?
  2. I'd recommend a Solid State Disk. It very easy and fast to set up. They are a bit more expensive but: - they are quieter as they have no moving parts (PS4 pro fan will drown out any noise anyway so this point is moot). - more reliable and durable than a spinning hard disk and should last longer. - booting up and loading time are much faster. About 10-20% faster in my experience. This might only be a couple of second per loading screen, but if you game a lot, like I do, those seconds add up to a lot of time saved.
  3. @liaddroriits relatively easy to set up. I had to play around with network settings on my PC (had to repair connection) but I got it working without too much hastle. You're already in the most active area for the division last stand. When I was playing North America was dead pretty much any time of day. I managed to get a few games on the weekend but the bulk was played in Europe. Asia is also dead. So you may not need VPN. I found your nightime was most active. When I first started playing the last stand at the end of February I could find games in UK morning time. By the time I finished ( end of March) I only managing to fill up lobbies in UK evening. As for waiting for lobbies to fill up...Unfortunately you will spend a lot of time doing this. Hopefully once in match players stay around so you can get multiple in. Yes there were many waits of 20-30 min. I won about half of my matches I think so there was a lot of time waiting. I was playing my PS3 while waiting in lobbies for last stand. Re boosting, I was part of a group on discord that tried many times but couldn't get 16 people together to boost. For a game this old I think that will be next to impossible to get that many coordinated. Best bet is legit I think. If you team up with people you may hurt your chances as if they have low gear score they may be a burden as some players in last stand have ridiculous gear and will wipe the floor with you. If you have lower gear focus on getting shd tech and activating boosts. I recommend using combined banshee predator build with assault rifle and smg. The house smg seems to best best gun for this mode of you have it. When I started my gear was terrible but I focused on the above build and was able to help a bit in combat eventually. Discord is chatting app specially for gamers. Many of the gaming sessions in PSN link to discord servers that have many gamers on them. Much better to chat than PSN messages and can have more than 8 people for voice. It's doable if lobbies are still full but will take a while. Aim for 2-3 wins a day and you should have it in a month or so. If you have a switch or a good tv show to watch it will make the waiting in lobbies easier. With patience it will be possible. Good luck.
  4. Re, the longevity of the console, the wear and tear caused by leaving it on standby is negligible I believe. I think the planned obsolescence (how long until something is redundant or it breaks) of a console is much longer / non existent compared to a PC. Phones and PC's have planned obsolesce of about 2-4 years. Consoles are designed to last much longer based on my experience as you will spend much more on games over the life of a console than on the console itself. So if worried about wear and tear it will be fine. My PS4 pro was bought on the day it released and it has been on standby most of that time and runs without any noticeable difference. I agree, the trophy should have been gold.Trophies seem like an afterthought to the developers a lot of the time. I think you are right re sales. In this case it would have influenced the sale of the game amongst certain circles. Comparing the number of players on PSN profiles for DOOM and Wolfenstein 2 you can see a big difference. About 3.3 times more people player DOOM than Wolfenstein 2. Both shooters using the same engine (I think), DOOM was released 18 months earlier but the difference in number of players is huge. I suspect the Mein Leben trophy had a lot to do with that. I'd take a trophy like Mein Leben any day over those long super grindy, RNG trophies. I own all the Yakuza's on PS4 but don't want to start as they have these long grindy trophies for platinum. Same with Monster Hunter World.
  5. you can pause and put your PS4 in rest mode and do it over multiple sittings. Many of the videos do it in 2-3 hours which was too risky for me. My final run took 6 hour approx. in three sittings. I highly recommend it just for fun. It's a great game.
  6. Me and my group got it with 6 people on a team on one of the push the payload maps. The whole team was at the door and at the very start of the round the enemy starts shooting into our spawn. Our Baptiste used the ability and it worked. Some trophies have been slightly glitched since last updated. I got requirements for huge Rez and the pharah concussion blast but neither popped.
  7. Take a few days off, play another game or spend some time away from gaming. I found that helped me calm down and reset. I died at the 2nd last area of the game once on Mein Leben and I was so frustrated I kept dying in Acts 1 and 2 for the next few attempts. After a break I was finally able to do it. I also had the game on PC so I would practice problematic areas over and over then do them directly afterwards on the PS4.
  8. Keep at it, the muscle memory will come back in no time.
  9. The last stand is the worst
  10. Star Wars Battlefront 2. Getting the Level 50 trophy. After the grind of getting to L100 in Battlefront 1 I said I wouldn't buy Battlefront 2. In a moment of weakness however, I did. After getting all other trophies legit I was only at Level 23 out of 50. The game modes were fun for the first 10 hours but become very tiresome and repetitive after that. Game-play was very simplistic and lacked the depth of other Battlefront games. The progression system was completely broken with the only unlocks being tied to random loot boxes. Basically there was nothing to keep me playing except for the platinum trophy. Doing the remaining 27 levels legit would have taken over 100 hours of grinding out the Hero's vs Villains mode. Longer still if you account for time waiting in lobbies. I was angry at EA for doing the bare minimum in relation to this game. Releasing a very simple, in my opinion average, multiplayer shooter knowing that it would sell as they have the Star Wars license. I was angry at myself for letting EA take my money...again. After a 3 month break I said I would finish it. I managed to boost it during double XP weekends doing Hero's vs Villans over and over. It still took about 4 sessions of about 5 hours each to get it. I just hope they don't release DLC that raises the level cap to 100 and have another trophy for that.
  11. I felt the same way when I first played the game. Here are some general tips. Other posts have much more detailed info about specific areas. General Tips: - master the leaning from behind cover mechanic. it will be essential. -practice, practice practice. It may seem impossible at first but with enough patience and practice it's possible. Practice areas until you are no longer nervous and they are second nature. - there are many videos online with many different tactics for the problematic areas. Find which ones work best for you and practice them. Some videos online show some very risky strategies that I wasn't comfortable with, especially late in the game. - if you are going to try and sneak through areas I recommend knowing a safe area where you can sprint to and camp if you get spotted. - I chose action over stealth late in the game (except for finale of Venus mission) as I knew good camping spots and didn't want to risk getting spotted and loosing a lot of health. A few direct hits will kill you even at full health and armour. - when trying to go for the Mein Leben runs don't do more than 2 hours in one sitting. If i played longer than two hours my concentration would drop which usually resulted in making a mistake. I did my run in three sittings over three days keeping my PS4 in rest mode. It took about 2 weeks of practising on the hardest difficulty before I got it.
  12. Hi all, I was wondering how many of the multiplayer trophies could be self-boosted with x2 PS3 consoles with x4 controllers split screen?
  13. For those interested particularly people from Australia and New Zealand that have smaller populations... I am using Nord VPN via my PC. My PS4 is hooked up to my PC as outlined in the link below. The motherboard on my PC has two LAN ports. If yours has one you can use wifi or buy an adaptor that has two. https://www.techadvisor.co.uk/how-to/game/how-use-vpn-on-ps4-3670694/ When I change a server via Nord VPN I test my connection on my PS4 via Settings > Network > Test Internet Connection. If all good I start the game. I am also finding it very useful for Overwatch as I am pretty sure you can't change your server on console. If playing on the default Australian server I spend a very long time to get into a quick play match. It is much faster getting into matches via a Singapore Server.
  14. Thanks for the info. Setting my VPN to Germany seemed to work well. I have been playing at about 9am Germany time on wards and have managed to get into matches within about 5 min. Asian servers (Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan) at the times I have been playing (approx. 6pm Asia time) are more or less dead. Same with US servers (approx. 4am US time). I will try US servers again on the weekend.
