  1. Sony's way of fixing this would actually be quite simple, they would just need to implement 3 basic rules for developers/publishers for any future games: No repeat trophy lists for the same game A trophy list can only have 4 gold trophies max, and must have more silver trophies than gold, and more bronze trophies than silver If all the trophies in a game can be achieved within the span of a few hours by most people, it does not get a platinum trophy The problem isn't the people getting the shovelware trophies, it's that there are loopholes in the trophy system that are now getting exploited by developers or publishers because Sony hasn't updated the list rules since they built the trophy system all the way back in 2008
  2. I'll also add that sites like this fixed a massive issue years ago with something Sony didn't care to fix, and that was addressing cheaters where sites like this one started pulling cheaters off the leaderboards. Without doing that, the amount of people that would care about and use everything relating to the entire leaderboard system (and all the surrounding systems affected by that, which are many) would pretty much be nobody. Sites like these effectively fixed Sony's oversights with that issue. Now there is clearly an issue with "trophy inflation", meaning while the trophies are obviously all still worth the same amount of points, the amount of effort that it takes to obtain those trophies have a laughably far less effort on average needed to get them. It has changed the dynamic of it taking years on average to getting 100 platinum trophies to just being able to get 4x that amount in a weekend. This is yet another problem with the trophy system that Sony doesn't care to fix (just like trophy cheaters years back). Whichever trophy website chooses to address this issue by introducing a well calculated rarity leaderboard alongside the original long-running total points leaderboard will be a smart move. Also, introducing possibly a new trophy or award (like a diamond trophy or a diamond medal or something) which is given to you for any platinum trophies below a certain rarity (like 50%) will effectively solve the problem too. I've always thought it strange how people are trying to argue this not being a thing that's happening and how something new just can't possibly be put in place to fix the original 'at-a-glance' info that the leaderboard and platinum trophies used to provide, which they no longer do. Just a few simple additions would fix the issue, and wouldn't replace anything that's already there either. People get in some pretty heated conversations about something that has pretty obviously been happing for years lol
  3. I just started laughing to myself seeing 8 lists for the same freaking game all in the same day - you're saying Ratailaka did this? I am shocked, truly I hope something is done about the shovelware at some point by Sony or by Sly, because why would developers or publishers stop flooding the market with trash when people are still buying the games to play them for 10 minutes to "earn" the trophies? While it hasn't killed off my personal interest in trophy hunting because most normal games still have good trophy lists, it's completely killed my interest in the community aspect of trophy hunting. Who cares about browsing other peoples profiles now when most of them are full of shovelware lists?
  4. Fixed lol PSN's quality control always firing on all cylinders
  5. Are people really arguing for 3 pages about the word "free" being used for PlayStation Plus? It's not hard to understand what he means when he says 'free', right? It's not that big of a deal haha
  6. I've seen a message like that on some forum threads in the past because an image that was used on a forum post is related to a site that got breached, removing the image from the tread removed the message. If that's the case, a forum mod can probably remove the image in the thread page you link to. Otherwise it's probably an ad if it's not a forum thread you're seeing it at
  7. Yeah that makes no sense at all, it sounds like they just gave you a random response because they don't know lol - Looking at your profile on PSN itself, it looks like you have 34 more trophies than on the site. Try hiding all of you trophies on your console (Don't do that to all of them individually, just change the main setting from where 'anyone' can see your trophies to where 'no one' can see your trophies). Then update your profile here on the site to where it says "Aww no trophies here", then switch the privacy setting on your console to where 'anyone' can see your trophies, earn a new trophy, then update your profile here again and that should hopefully fix it
  8. You'll need to earn a new trophy in any other game, then update your profile here in order for those deleted lists to disappear from your profile here on the site
  9. Not sure if it'll work, but you could try this:
  10. Sly hasn't started pulling any other languages from any list since updating to the PS5 API, not sure when he'll be fixing that unfortunately
  11. I think the main problem is the viewers and the platforms who are giving streamers with zero talent the money and recognition for sitting in a chair for hours mindlessly mumbling chat messages for a few dollars. But it's basically a product of supply and demand: People go to Twitch for low quality content, and there is lots of supply! Also lets be honest, it's easy to have no talent but just look good on camera, but extremely difficult to be talented on camera. There is hope out there, for example Codemiko is an extremely talented and an actually entertaining female streamer, but people like her are unfortunately few and far in-between, especially on sites like Twitch, which really isn't a game streaming site anymore if we're being honest As far as online lobbies? That's always just been the norm in online gaming on my opinion - people are always trash talking anyone and everyone they hear in chat and you really don't know what to expect, especially with games like Call of Duty. I always thought it was funny that there was an expectation that as soon as a girl entered the lobby that everyone should stop all the trash talking and name calling each other and all of a sudden be different than the wierdos they've been Not gonna happen, game chat is game chat. My advice has always been to trash talk them back, point out what they're doing sarcastically, and have fun and embrace it. Funny enough I've made lots of great friends that way over the past decade. There's the flirty and goofy people you mention too in game chat, and I would just point out how goofy they are being, typically they'd laugh and just say you're right Best thing to do to resolve that is have good group of friends to play with and watch and support good content
  12. Yeah for me no images on the site are loading (unless they're cached by my browser) @Sly Ripper
  13. I'm absolutely loving the game, but even on PS5 the at least 1 crash per hour and load of mostly amusing (but not game breaking) bugs is unavoidable. They were in a rock in a hard place with this one after 3 (4?) delays for this game, but ultimately I think they should have waited until Spring 2021 until most of the bugs were worked out and they could release it in sync with the next gen version. The fact that Sony pulled the entire thing from the PlayStation Store is crazy though, they must be really annoyed that CD Projekt Red said Sony would give refunds (especially since Sony's refund policy is pretty much non-existent). For the most part it runs fine on the PS5 but I hear it's really messy on base PS4, here's hopes they can release some fixes for the game and continue to improve it. It's a shame the bugs dragged this game down, because the game, story, and world itself has been so much fun - a breath of fresh air to all the other cookie cutter games that have released recently
  14. I think @Sly Ripper hasn't pulled list languages from the new API yet, so no new lists have language options yet
