  1. Hi all So my team just won our first game as a Pro-Level team in Pro-Am but the "On the Rise" trophy didn't pop. It was our first win as a Pro team and not the win where we ranked up to a Pro level one (incase someone may ask that question). I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced a similar issue or if it's just a case of me interpreting the trophy requirements incorrectly. There are no guides for this game and this particular trophy is quite rare and a pain in the arse (co-op multiplayer), so I wasn't able to find anything on Google or YouTube. Thanks in advance.
  2. Thanks for the update. It's like they literally just put the bare minimum effort into porting the thing and that was it. Trophies are one thing but when core aspects of the game are still broken after around 4 years then it gives (potential) players the impression that they really don't care about the game.
  3. @jayboo1991 I can't connect either. I'm guessing since it's the first weekend period since the game was released on PS Plus, a lot of people have decided to download it and give it a try. Unfortunately, this is one of the extreme negatives associated with online only games.
  4. Wondering what the game is like now since it's been a few months since someone gave an update on it. Is it still pretty laggy? I really enjoyed the PS3 version but the fact it was just broken ruined it for me.
  5. I'm going on an educated assumption here but I think the issue is that the DLC trophy information never downloaded to the player's PS3 system. If you go to view the Defiance trophy list in offline mode then they don't appear. Only the base game trophy list appears. That would explain why none of them pop. If you complete a pursuit in-game then the game acknowledges you've done it (as shown by the videos Papidadi posted above), but there is no trophy information to unlock on the system as offline and online don't match. I'm guessing the work involved was just too much in fixing it as Trion have been aware of it for years. Trophy list aside, it's an enjoyable game but completely ruined by regular disconnects and constant in-game lagging. The fact it has been this way for a couple of years now is near unforgivable on Trion's part. From what I've read, the PS4 port isn't much better.
  6. Thanks for your response. I've only just seen this. After about 20 hours of farming and being unsuccessful, I decided to delete my save file, uninstall the game and then reinstall. A while after I posted this, I realised that I actually hadn't had a drop from the first 6 or 7 lore in the list (from the menu screen). After I started again after reinstalling, I got all of the lore within about 2 hours. Was a strange one. I literally farmed for at least 20 hours and nothing. Then after starting again, they all came pretty quickly.
  7. Hi all I know this game has only been played by a handful of people and I know the trophy in question has been achieved by a select few but I'm hoping someone will be able to answer my question. I only need the Mermaidon and Ghost Gem lores left for the Bookworm trophy. I have been grinding for over 10 hours in Librarius rooms just looking for these two pieces of lore but have been unsuccessful. My question is are these two pieces of lore so incredibly rare or is there another way to come across them outside of the Librarius chests? The reason I ask is that I have found every other bit of lore multiple times over. I've even found The Dueling Deaths lore 4 times and from what I've read on the internet, that is one of the rarest lores in the game. It could be that RNGsus just isn't smiling down on me or that I'm just missing something completely here.
  8. Definitely Heart of the Reich. Probably spent a day and a half just trying to get to the second set of Flak 88s. It was full of cheap deaths that you couldn't do anything about due to the grenade spamming. The easiest part was probably the stair section at the end. Never again, though.
  9. I don't blame you. I'm just incredibly stubborn. I will not let a game beat me. 😡
  10. OK, I believe the reason I am being overrun with enemies (and grenades) is that after I destroyed the second Flak 88, I didn't get the checkpoint with the tank moving up. Apparently, this blocks off one of the enemy spawn points and makes pushing up a lot easier (going off the description in a YT video). Back to the start of the mission I go... 😒
  11. Thanks for the responses guys. @dragon11gggg Typically I would agree that taking your time and pushing forward is the right approach. It's how I beat some of the harder missions like Burn 'em Out, Relentless and Blowtorch & Corkscrew. The difference here is that the enemies respawn very quickly and throw 3-5 grenades at you every couple of seconds that force you to retreat back and lose any progress you've made with pushing forward. It's annoying that the Veteran trophies in the game are solo only. For something this difficult, you need a good team behind you. It seems your AI teammates are incapable of hitting anything and are there purely for show. They don't have your back and I have had multiple experiences of the enemy running directly past my teammates just to either shoot or melee me. It's incredibly frustrating and unbalanced. I have come this far in veteran and am sure I will get it eventually. For a campaign this difficult, I'm surprised the platinum percentage for this game is as high as it is.
  12. Yeah, I've tried spamming them with grenades and molotovs but the constant grenades and firing doesn't cease. The issue I'm finding is that there is a good 4-5 enemies in front of me and to my left. It wouldn't be so bad but it's the fact they respawn after a couple of seconds. It leaves no room to push forward.
  13. Hi all I'm currently playing through Veteran mode and am on "Heart of the Reich". I am stuck and need your input. I'm on the part where you have to take out the Flak 88s. I have seen videos of people recommending to take out the first Flak located on the right and then the one on the left. However, I decided to take out the one on the left first due to it being more challenging to get to and thought that if I die then I wouldn't have to replay smashing the one on the right over and over again. I managed to get to the one on the right by (luckily) running up to it, planting the C4 and then running away. I then dealt with the other one but this is where my issue comes in. It seems that because I didn't kill a lot of the enemies by the left Flak before I got the checkpoint, they're still there and continuing to respawn every 5 seconds after I kill them (literally). Not only that but there is a new wave of enemies in front of the crashed tank between me and the "safe house" in the middle ready to hand my ass to me. Since you only have a linear path in the level, I have to deal with around 10 constantly respawning enemies either in front of me or to my left, which also means 3-5 grenades every couple of seconds. As a result, it's near impossible to progress to the house in the middle, let alone to either of the remaining Flaks. I've watched YT videos to try and help me with this part but none of them has anywhere near as many enemies to deal with as I seem to have. Any input here would be appreciated. Am I missing something or should I just restart the level? Some of the other missions I have done have been tough yet doable but I have been stuck on this particular part for a number of hours now (probably tried it over 100 times now).
  14. It's very subjective - neither is right or wrong. It's about your preference to hunting. I personally prefer to get 100%. However, what's more important to me is playing the game and earning the trophies as opposed to having a friend help me out by, for example, deliberately losing. Sure, it may take longer to obtain a specific trophy this way but I get a greater sense of accomplishment, which to me, is what it's all about. Sometimes it's not always feasible due to crazy luck-based restrictions or unreliable and/or dead servers but I will certainly do things the "hard way" where possible. Another example is the Jak II debug mode workaround where people are now able to obtain the plat in like 5 minutes. When I do get around to the Jak series I will still play the game and earn the trophies the normal way because, to me, it'll always be about playing the game first and foremost.
  15. Done that. Even with the difficulty set to favour Hunters' I'm struggling. I even went into the final mission with the auto-balance completely even. The last thing I can think of is changing the Monster I am fighting. I have normally been fighting against Behemoth due to his (relatively) slow speed and attacks but he may have a higher health pool than other Monsters...? Have avoided Wraith as he's pretty fast and hard to pin down. Maybe Kraken would be a good bet to try beating.
