  1. The only thing more legendary than these 3 cars is the OP who started this thread. Seriously. Thanks for helping me nab that platinum trophy today.
  2. I can confirm it works after patch 1.08. I had to wait for the patch to complete the dirt track for the Super license once they corrected the tires. And a day or so after that I received the online distance trophy whilst grinding out credits on Fisherman’s Ranch. Hope that helps!
  3. God dammit. Just wrapped up a brutal work week, cancelled any and all plans with humans with the aim of grinding GT7 dirt races (the least satisfying races in this game) to get some overpriced cars I’ll never drive, and I turned on my console to see this update, knowing that Polyphony was going to screw us over somehow. And unfortunately I was right
  4. I literally stopped on S-5 the night before the patch and told myself I’d do it the following day lol. Talk about timing and luck!
  5. Really looking forward to this game and it will be a lot of fun for sure. I will definitely get my money’s worth. I never pre-order games, and I never purchase beyond the most basic (cheapest) versions of games, and I have broken two of my rules with this game, and I did the same thing with Gran Turismo Sport. This series has always been special to me, despite the ebb and flow of overall quality, style, and playability. With that said, I am honestly a bit disappointed that it doesn’t have some more challenging trophies like the online trophies in Gran Turismo Sport. And I generally despise online trophies. Those are the trophies that are rewarding, especially in a racing game where winning by fractions of a second is oh so sweet, shortly after some heart-pounding moments. There will always be a sufficient base of players from all around the world with a range of driving proficiency, giving their best shot at tracks that have seen greatness outside of the screen, but played through a rare and occasional console release flagship game. I don’t want my memories of this game to be the grind-y trophies, but the victories. Because in racing, winning is what matters. No one cares about who came in 2nd place. And second place shouldn’t be good enough for a platinum trophy in a racing game Either way, looking forward to adding this platinum trophy to my list. See you all on the tracks, and let’s keep it clean out there, fellas!
  6. I snagged the PS4 disc for $9.xx CDN on eBay a few months ago. What a deal. Haven’t touched it yet, and really excited for the PS5 version. It made me happy to hear that it will be a free update for existing disc owners as well.
  7. I’m unable to comment on the stats-related issues, as I never experienced any issues regarding such. I can say with certainty though that all trophies are attainable. For Hazard Zone, there are certainly enough players with cross-play turned on, and I didn’t have any issues in the PNW connecting to PSN only games during peak hours. The matchmaking used to be a lot slower and much more painful compared to now. Not sure if it’s due to a patch, or a larger player base, or both, but it’s much better now. You’ll probably still have AI spawn into the extraction zones and near data drive locations, and more so with cross-played turned off, but it actually makes for a more predictable and controllable outcome in my opinion and made for much easier 2nd extractions for me and my team with most human player-based teams eliminated by then.
  8. I selected the option in the settings menu for the inverted y axis movements, but doesn’t seem to work. Wondering if anyone else is having this issue. You’d think a $20 game would come without bugs like this.
  9. Agreed. I decided that it was too idealistic and unrealistic to expect a fix so I just started playing the game anyways haha. Oh well.
  10. Hi All, So I downloaded this game and noticed right away that the game title doesn’t show up properly as the header for the trophy list. Instead of displaying the title of the game, it displays “Trophy Set”. It looks really weird on my game list, and I’m a bit OCD about it, so I’ve deleted the game list entry for now (thankfully it was at 0% for trophies). Hopefully the dev sees this and updates it? Looks super weird having the 4 Need for Speed titles, Wreckfest, and then “Trophy Set”. Haven't tried downloading the PS4 version to see if it displays the same way, but will try tomorrow. This display is clearly an oversight, and a pretty annoying one for me. Would prefer that when someone selects my profile through their console they see the actual title of the game as opposed to some placeholder text. #firstworldproblems
