  1. There's close to 1000 weekly players, the rest of the leaderboard positions are thrown in by the developers and show up as 'Dirt PLAYER' when you choose the daily/weekly events, so the trophy requirements like the Delta Daily B class event roughly stay the same.
  2. Just a heads up that a random patch was released few days ago which adds 2-player online for story and tower modes.
  3. Sorry I only just received the notification. Because I was an idiot and always skipped the 'how to play' section, it took me quite a few hours to figure out how the scoring works before eventually getting the platinum. All up I spent roughly 20 hours with this game. If you know how scoring works and you know your way around a shmup or two, it should take less than 10 hours, of course there's the odd gun on here that's completed it in a couple of hours. I still put it in a top 5 in difficulty for a PS4 shmup 1 credit-clear (that isn't a japanese imported game like Psyvariar Delta, yet to try any of those).
  4. 1 trick for this game is to only unlock the characters you want to use for playthroughs until you complete the game/trophies. I like ranged so I don't bother unlocking melee, so if you are attempting a 'no snatches' run it will only select the characters you have unlocked. Have made it to act 5 with no snatches by restarting the game until it chooses a character you have unlocked that has high HP etc.
  5. A patch was just released, looks like the trophies have been fixed. Had 3 unlock when I started up a skirmish game (co-op trophies + another), and I also unlocked the trophy for completing skirmish using only two harvesters on the first try since the patch. Not sure about the penguins, may need to be done from scratch, cant seem to get it to unlock so far.
  6. It took me about 90 minutes to get 100%. There are 30 stages but there are checkpoints after you defeat a boss on every 6th stage so you can continue with on 3 lives. Difficulty you select doesn't affect trophies either.
  7. Here's a video showing the run: Shows most of the secrets and all tech bonuses except for the last boss. Most of stage 2-6 was played with devil rank, except for stage 5 boss due to losing a life, and on another life lost on stage 6. It's possible to get devil rank before the stage 1 boss for extra bonus but was never able to get it.
  8. Here's the video of the run, hope the quality turns out OK: Shows most of the secrets and all tech bonuses except for the last boss. Most of stage 2-6 was played with devil rank, except for stage 5 boss due to losing a life, and on another life lost on stage 6. It's possible to get devil rank before the stage 1 boss for extra bonus but was never able to get it.
  9. I have the video saved, but I have 0.5Mbit upstream. Will use my phone and try to upload in a few hours time.
  10. Oh sweet, a video! I’m that close now I better not spoil things. But 10 billion is good to know though, been struggling to get some extra points happening, will update the post some more today hopefully.
  11. Hey everyone! Not sure if anyone will see this or could care anymore as its not a popular game, but I have been bored with shmups lately and decided to revisit this awesome game. It's seriously one of the best shmups on the console, and also the hardest from what I have experienced, a shame it isn't more popular. I have made a guide of sorts for unlocking the true last boss (TLB), as there seems to be conflicting information everywhere for this TLB to appear, and general information on scoring is very hard to find. You will need to unlock secrets as you play through the game in order to get the score required, most of which are below. Conditions for True Last Boss to Appear * Must play on Maniac mode * Must reach and finish stage 6 bosses with a single credit, essentially 1-credit clear (1cc) the game. * 10 billion score after the final boss in stage 6 is destroyed, but before the stage clear screen. Rank System, Scoring, Secrets and Tech bonuses Rank System - You start the game at rank 1, and your rank can be increased by unlocking secrets and generally by killing enemies. There's rank 1, 2, 3, and then a boss icon as the final rank. - Getting hit (stay alive, lose all shields), losing a life, or using a shield will decrease your rank, but if you have the highest rank (devil rank), using a shield will not lower your rank. - Devil rank introduces new enemies and adds extra bullets to existing enemies upon their death, just when you thought you were making progress Also gives the highest score. Secrets - Unlocked by killing certain enemies in each stage, or by other conditions such as "chaining" enemies together (not hitting an enemy within 2 seconds lowers your score chain) Tech Bonuses - Unlocked during boss fights, by following certain conditions Scoring - Extra life awarded every 2-billion score. Completing all secrets in stage 3 and 4 will also unlock an extra life, only by unlocking secrets in the stages that follow them (4 and 5). - Hold down fire to 'grind' enemies that can absorb a bit of damage then quickly destroy the weakest enemies for increased score chain Stage Guide Stage 1 Secret 1 - Have a perfect chain up until destroying the opening mini-boss in the stage (roughly 140-chain) for a secret joker to appear. Secret 2 - Halfway through the stage, there are 9 turrets positioned on 3 ground ships. Destroy 6 of them Secret 3 - In the same area, destroy all medium-sized enemies. Tech Bonus - The boss has three moving parts. Destroy the left and right sides first, before finishing off the center. Delay one side as long as you can before destroying the center, as extra bullets are introduced once you get the tech bonus. Stage 2 Secret 1 - Kill the 4 blue enemies in the opening 30 seconds of the stage Secret 2/3 - Kill the sets of red enemies that shoot diagonal bullets in the 30 secs - 2 minute range Secret 4 - ? Secret 5 - ? Tech Bonus - At 50% boss health, position yourself on the far left of the screen and quickly work your way towards the right as 3 red spinning enemies move towards the bottom of the screen. Kill all 3 enemies for the tech bonus Stage 3 Secret 1/3 - There are 3 big purple enemies that hover across the top of the screen in this stage, with the first appearing after the opening section with the glowing pipes you have to dodge. Kill the first for secret 1, and kill all three throughout the stage for secret 3 Secret 2 - Secret 2 is unclear, it is either kill a set amount of 'medium-sized' enemies in the first half of the stage, or reach 530 score chain Tech Bonus - Boss comes in 3 phases, simply destroy the 3 rotating objects in the second phase. Stage 4 Secret 1 - Destroy the second mini-boss (has a health bar) in the stage before it disappears Secret 2 - Kill a set amount of medium-sized red enemies in the first half of the level Secret 3 - Can't consistently find it, think it has to do with blue rotating enemies in the middle of the level Tech Bonus - Similar to stage 2, there are 2 spinning enemies at roughly 30% boss health you will need to destroy Secret 4 - Delay killing the boss after the tech bonus to destroy a final spinning enemy Stage 5 Secret 1/2 - This stage has red/green coloured obstacles that can be destroyed. Throughout the stage, there are red spinning enemies that shoot purple bullets placed in between these obstacles. Must kill 8 in the first half and 8 in the second half of the stage for each secret. Tech Bonus - The same setup as stage 1. Boss has three moving parts, destroy the center piece last. Stage 6 Secret 1 - kill a set amount (8) of blue enemies that appear after each 'warning signal' sound effect at the start of the level Secret 2 - ? Tech Bonus - ? I managed to find the TLB after reaching 10.7 billion score and losing two lives along the way. About 80% of the secrets and tech bonuses were found. You also need to remain in devil rank as you destroy most of the bosses for extra score as well. A video will be uploaded soon.

  13. The difficulty becomes a 2/10 with a second controller, and probably a 7-8/10 with the single controller. If you run out of lives on the last level for Vasara 1 and 2, the stage resets and you start the level again. If you have the second controller you can easily finish the last stage of each game as long as 1 player remains alive. With enough practice with one controller on each last level and the boss you can pass it, I have for Vasara 1 but not 2.
  14. Haha, thanks mate! The timeless mode is surprisingly fun, especially when you use the final character that you unlock from completing Vasara 2, as you can pretty much have constant vasara attacks through the later levels. Originally I gave up with Yukimara when I first started playing as I couldn't beat the final stage with 1 credit, but the second controller makes the game an easy platinum with a small amount of grind. So I completed the game with the other two characters and was wondering why there was no true boss yet. Vasara 2 with one controller seems near impossible. QUICK SUMMARY FOR PLATINUM COMPLETION: Vasara 1 - 3 playthroughs, one for each character, using a second controller for final stage (6 stages) Vasara 2 - 5 playthroughs, 1x12stage mode and 4x6 stage mode using each of the 5 characters. Second controller on stages 6 and 12. Timeless mode - Roughly 100 stages or 10-15 playthroughs depending on skill, killing various bosses along the way. 7-10 hours total
  15. The things you need to worry about the most are the Perandus Manor (currently T8) and Doryani's Machinarium (currently T6) maps... make sure they are bought/completed before the league ends as they become harder to find as time goes by to the point where they will disappear completely from trading once you're in standard league. The other thing to worry about is the breachstones for the breachlords. When Legion league started, they removed the atlas map mod in standard league which allows breaches to spawn, so now all breach splinters are super rare to find and expensive to buy in the standard mode. All maps you have completed in Legion league will be saved once your character is transferred to standard league, except for the Vaal Temple and each of the 4 lairs and The Shaper boss, they will have to be completed again for atlas completion trophies.
