  1. As it doesn't appear to have happened yet, will this also be getting expanded to the Trophy Cabinet/Trophy Log sections on the Profile screen? It would make sense. Personally, I find the PSN rarity to be the only one which really matters, as it's the only true and consistent measure.
  2. I've only got one more trophy to get for the Platinum now... "Finished the job" - just need to wait for a friend to be available for co-op. It's been a grind, I'll grant you that. I'm not sure where exactly it happened, but there was a tipping point between "it's fun getting these collectibles" and "holy shit, how many more of these fecking things are there?" But over all, I've quite enjoyed it. Haven't bothered with any of the DLC yet, though.
  3. It's not that. This happened prior to that, and has been happening occasionally for years. Yeah, I used to get the 'installing trophies' message on some PS3 games; that's just down to some poor coding/implementation - happened on several third-party titles, but never on first-party. It doesn't happen at all on PS4.
  4. A question for anyone and everyone who cares to answer... Have you ever had trophies sync themselves from console to PSN? I was having a brief discussion on a PlayStation group on Google+ and no-one else there seemed to have experienced this, so I thought I'd ask here. I've had it happen perhaps 5 or 6 times over the years, on both PS3 and PS4. The latest were 4 trophies in GR Wildlands, all earned within the space of 97 minutes between 12:30am and 2:08am UK time this past Sunday. I was playing until around 4am. When I'd finished, I closed the game, did a trophy sync, and nothing happened. When I looked, they'd already been synced. By coincidence, PSNProfiles had also tweeted these trophy wins at 2:57am, while I was still playing the game: Now I don't know if they were synced in real time as they were earned, or in bulk at the same time, but the system clearly uploaded them without any interaction from me. Automatic trophy sync is a much requested feature for PSN which has long gone unaddressed by Sony, and yet it clearly seems to happen sometimes. It's rare, and there seems to be no real reason for or pattern to it, no discernible trigger...but it does happen. It surely can't just happen to me... there must be others who have had this.
  5. I would have, but I didn't have the skill unlocked at that time.
  6. You know what? I hadn't even noticed that! 😳 D'oh! Mind you, there's not exactly a shortage of them, and if I can do 2 or 3 in a fraction of the time, nothing's really lost. Oh well. I'll try sniping the driver in future. I managed it once... same effect... stops the convoy, letting you take out the support more easily. Why no-one else gets in and drives, I don't know... they all seem able to fly helicopters when I fudge up stealing those! Still, grateful for small mercies and all that.
  7. The convoy missions were driving me nuts until I made an accidental discovery... you don't have to chase them. Everything about the missions pushes you to feel you have to preserve the target truck (you AI squadmates even tell you to be careful if you shoot it), so you tend to (well, I did) pursue in a vehicle or helicopter, trying to take out the support vehicles while avoiding damage to the target. And so you get ripped apart by the miniguns. Don't bother! Just blow it up. The convoy stops, making it easier to deal with the support, and you can still claim your reward afterwards. It makes them far easier, and so, so much quicker.
  8. 😂 I've not had that happen yet.
  9. Must've been something I said.
  10. Agreed. The OP's idea is perfectly reasonable. Pretty much everywhere has always dropped 'the' from titles since forever. Books, music, movie lists, catalogues... in fact, leaving it in is the unusual/rare/(some would say) wrong way of doing it. The reason is that so many titles have "the" at the beginning that you can end up with a huge section for 'T' and precious little elsewhere.
  11. As I said at the top, it's feedback. I saw it on other sites, and thought it would be nice to have here. That's what this entire forum section is for, so I'm sure Sly will take it in the constructive manner in which it was intended. He doesn't have to act on it.
  12. Sly's API gathers all this info anyway. Implementing something like this would probably take a man of his talents about 10 minutes, if that.
  13. Fair enough, but then not everyone who pursues trophies uses this site. Some use this one, some use Exophase, some use Trophy Leaders, some use others... so you never get a true reflection, just a different figure depending on the site you're looking at. The PSN stat is the only truly global figure - both of those other sites recognise that and offer it alongside their own membership values. Personally, I feel the PSN rarity is the one to go by, since it's a true reflection based on all PlayStation users. Keeping it within your own exclusive club doesn't give you a true reflection. A Bugatti Veyron is a rare car, but if you limit your criteria to the Bugatti Veyron Owners Club, everyone's got one and it's nothing special. Still, whatever your view, all I'm saying is that it would be nice to have the stat there for those who'd like to see it. If it's there in a pop-up, it's good for those who want it, and makes absolutely no difference to everyone else. And it's one less reason for people to use other sites.
  14. Consider this 'feedback' rather than a 'suggestion'... I was recently looking at Exophase.com and noticed that, while they calculate rarity among their own user-base (same as here), they have a nice little pop-up when you mouse over the icon which shows actual PSN rarity... Just thought it might me a nice little feature to 'borrow'.
  15. If I'm being brutally honest, I don't see any need for an app when everything on the site can be used in any half-decent mobile browser. The only thing that's possibly needed is a full-on mobile/responsive theme for the site. As much as I love the site and appreciate the work you put in to it, I don't think there's anything here that needs, or would benefit from, 'appifying'.
