  1. Im in the same boat as you in that I only need the Gold Standard trophy for the platinum. I play with a DS3 controller and don't own a wheel. I was never exceptionally good at the game and many years ago I made the push to grind through the A spec and B spec leveling. Last year, after a several year hiatus I decided to pick it back up again, and I managed to get gold on every race/license/event except for the 3 Sebastian Vettel X events. I only tried them a few times but after reading repeatedly how difficult they were online I decided to take a break from the game again before making that last push for plat. I keep telling myself I'm going to put the disc back in and focus on trying to complete it, but I always get distracted. I wish you the best of luck!!
  2. Just finished this game up myself. After almost a year and a half I had also given up on this ever being fixed, but the recent patch seems to have fixed the issues I was having with certain trophies. The 4 x Vanderbot trophy popped right away. Also, I got 'Impressionism' and 'Blue White and Red' to pop on the first try each. I had tried those two trophies a dozen times or so and never had any luck.
  3. I just finished this plat a few weeks ago and I wish I had started it much earlier. The Global Giants trophy was by far the biggest time sink and I think it's even bigger now than it used to be. I may be wrong here, but it seems they stopped posting the special events/challenges you could compete in that allowed you to earn packs or special gold/black ball players in at the end of 2019. They also did what appeared to be a final "triple xp earned for playing matches" event at the same time. I haven't launched the game since I got the plat, but in the 4 weeks that followed the start of the new year, there were no events of any kind. Maybe they truly just don't do them very often, but it seemed like they just stopped altogether. That was frustrating for me when trying to get the Global Giants trophy, because it is exceptionally difficult to get decent non-loan players that you can play with and level up via matches nowadays. And with the sales of myClub coins ending back in November (?) 2019, the only way you have to buy packs is to play tons of games only to earn enough GP to buy 1 pack with a very low percentage chance of having ONE good rare player to improve your lineup! Ultimately I went the two team route. Your BEST option currently for getting good players for your team is to check the Loan area DAILY. The Loan players seem to get updated every 2-3 days, but I could never figure out the timing exactly. I would recommend checking it every day. Grab any Black Ball players IMMEDIATELY. Only grab Gold 84-rated players from the Loan menu for spots you don't already have a Gold 80+ player in. Create two squads. Set your Squad 1 as your Global Giants team, and don't even play with them. Most of your team will be built with Loan players and you can't renew their contracts. Once they expire, you lose them, and that is a very bad thing.... Create a Squad 2 as your play squad. With your squad 2, you are going to play hundreds of Simulated matches. Each match will reward you with 600 coins for a loss, 1000 for a draw, or 1600 (?) for a win. These amounts are for a 1 star squad and will scale up based on the quality (star rating) of your squad. Each match will also reward you with a Scout card which you will redeem for another player (don't combine these, you will need as many players as you can get). Once a player has used up their contract, convert them to an EXP trainer and replace them with another card from your bench that is NOT on your Squad 1 roster. You will basically continue doing this until you have enough coins (I think its 25k) to buy a pack of cards and hope you get a good player. More often than not you will get more fodder cards to put into your Squad 2 lineup which is your EXP engine. Use the EXP trainers you are creating with your Squad 2 to level up your Squad 1 players. I would double check EXP gains amongst multiple players. For instance, I found times when putting a GK that had been converted into an EXP trainer actually gave more XP to a RB/CB/LB than to another GK. I'm not sure of the logic involved, but try and get the most XP you can out of your trainers. The trainers also seem to 'crit' occassionally and give you 2x, 3x, 4x, or more of what the actual training value is. This seems to be random but can be a huge bonus to speeding up this process. I would also recommend leveling up your Black ball players first. Taking a Gold player from XP Level 32/33 (Rank 85) all the way up to Level 36-38 (Rank 86) can take a good bit of XP but might only increase your overall team rating by 2 points, whereas doing the same for a Black ball player seems to give you 7-10 points on your overall team rating for the same thing. A couple more thnigs... 1. Log in every day! Even if you don't play, just going into the myClub menus will give you the daily rewards, which seem to rotate between 1500 GP, 40(?) myClub coins, and some fitness cards I think. These can be super valuable! Since you can't buy myClub coins anymore and there is a fixed amount you can earn for accomplishing tasks in the game, these are a nice bonus. I believe this resets at around 7 PM EST (Eastern US) 2. Try and get at least one simulate match win every day. The first match you win each day gives you a larger amount as a bonus and is worth trying for. Same reset time as #1. 3. I think I had the Standard version of the game, and you do get a few free packs with it, but it's like 1 per week and they show up as Special Agents on Saturday mornings. Definitely grab those!
  4. I was over 500k before the 4.4 update, with much of that score coming back in May before the time when the issue with the stats not being saved started. Everything I've read recently says that the 'fix' by DICE was a complete wipe of progression towards the stats for the trophies on the server side, so you were basically starting over. However, after the 4.4 update I played a Recon class for 104k points and then got to only ~65k on the support class when my Jack of All Trades trophy popped mid game. That tells me that either it was not a complete wipe of your progression on the server side, or this trophy is still glitched, but possibly in a good way. I'm hoping that means I have to play for something less than 100k more points to get the Elite trophy to pop. I'm not there yet, but I'll let you know when I get there if that holds true... EDIT: Just confirming that my 500k Elite trophy popped only 60k points after Jack of All Trades did, so you do NOT need to start from scratch if you had points started prior to the bug.
  5. There's a patch scheduled for tomorrow (July 25th) that "should" fix the issue, at least if what I can read into what their community manager is saying is correct. Fingers crossed...
  6. This has been an issue for over a month, so unfortunately it's wasn't quite as quickly fixed as the BF1 issue was. The thread on the EA forums regarding this issue is quickly approaching 350 posts and their Community Manager for the thread has stated it has reached their 'Top Issues' list, so we can hope it gets resolved soon..
  7. I sent a follow up inquiry 2 weeks ago, 4 months after my initial one. They took a week to get back to me and replied with " Please rest assured that our teams are investigating this issue, but we are yet to have news from them."
  8. The trophies are all buggy after the last update. I'm at 515k and no trophy for 500k. Also at 125k+ for each class and haven't gotten the Jack of All Trades trophy.
  9. My backlog is currently 412 games - more than half of what you have listed is in my backlog as well. It's a good mix of PS4/PS3 games, although my Vita backlog is dwindling fast and would be dwindling even faster if I could ever finish Super Monkey Ball Banana Splitz - curse that game! I keep my backlog in a spreadsheet otherwise I'd lose my mind figuring out what to play next...
  10. The completion time is based on the difference in timestamp between the first trophy you earn in the game and the last trophy you earn to get 100%. This particular game really only has the one trophy that takes any length of time which is the 500 challenges. That will take you around 8-12 hours IMO. The other trophies are very quick little one offs where you just do a specific sequence of tricks and shouldn't take more than a few minutes each. If you play the game through from start to finish, completing all the challenges as you go, the first trophy you earn will be the 500 challenges trophy, then you can go and quickly clean up the other easy ones and that makes your overall completion time for this game very short, even though you actually play it for 10+ hours.
  11. I sent them a notice on Jan. 18th and received a reply back on Jan 24th saying that the team was working on it, but, of course, no firm dates on when it might be patched.
  12. Thanks! I'll go put in my 2 cents!
  13. Thanks muukuhh! The Europe 1912 (Expanded) map worked for The Mole trophy.
  14. Can confirm. I beat 4x Vanderbots on the base map and no trophy pop. I'm also still having a heck of a time with other trophies popping even though I have completed them I believe. Other people seem to have gotten them though... The Mole - Win while using at least 23 train cars in tunnels. I played two games after the 1.01 patch on the standard Europe map, once using exactly 23 trains and once using more than 23. I won both games playing with only 2 human players, and no trophy pop. Blue, white, and red - Build each tracks of the triple routes between Marseille and Paris in the color of France's flag I won a game last night in v1.01 with 5 players (3 human, 2 AI) where tracks were placed and built upon in each of the 4 triple track sections in the order, from left to right, of blue, white, and red. No trophy pop, which is painful considering a 5 player game takes like 20-30 minutes. All colored tracks were placed down before any of them were built upon. I did not build them in the order starting from Marseille and going up to to Paris, but rather randomly. Not sure if that matters... Impressionism - Build each of the 8 tracks of length 5 in a different color Build each of the 8 tracks of length 5 in a different color Again, in v1.01, I played a 5 player game (3 human, 2 AI) where I placed 8 separate colors on the length 5 tracks and built upon each of them. I think the computer built one of the triple section tracks but them rest had trains placed by human players, not sure if that matters. I won the game and......no trophy.
  15. I also believe it's glitched. A lot of the trophies seem to be a little tricky to get. Some of them will only pop on certain variations of the maps even though not explicitly stated in the trophy descriptions. Others I can't get to pop at all even though I have definitely achieved them. The Germany maps I cant even play. As soon as the final player chooses their destination tickets the app on the phone exits. I restart it and it brings me back to the destination selections and repeats the closing over and over.
