  1. I'm good with your two propositions; both the 0.1 uncommon trophies and no value scaling. @Lumdubz & @James Tiger, do you approve the proposed idea for December?
  2. Neko's event worked because they had a bot that automatically tallied everything that people got during the event; it automatically calculated everything. Doing everything manually would be doable, but a real pain. What if we went with a basic point spread on the rarities, but with a larger scaling ratio and removing the lesser ranks to push people towards rarer things. Here's some point spreads I'll propose (in all of these, I'm putting Common and Uncommon at 0 points to focus on harder to earn trophies): Rare: 1 point, Very Rare: 3 points, Ultra Rare: 10 points (ratio of 3:1) Rare: 1 point, Very Rare: 4 points, Ultra Rare: 20 points (ratio of 4:1) Rare: 1 point, Very Rare: 5 points, Ultra Rare: 25 points (ratio of 5:1) We could also, as James proposed, combine it with the trophy type scaling from the March challenge. It would help push people that have less rare but more "valuable" trophies; for exemple, on a ration of 3:1, a gold Rare would be the same value as a bronze Very Rare.
  3. I mostly threw this idea as a final challenge; if there's a different idea that someone proposes, we could always change it.
  4. Finished my 3 also: PS3: Midway Arcade Origins - Had 11 trophies left to do. It's an okay classic arcade collection with a pretty varied difficulty level. Only had Sinistar to do in the difficult trophies, but it's a pretty decent time. PS4: God of War (2018) - I understand why everyone loved this game; it didn't mesh as much with me, but I really liked the character arcs that Kratos and Atreus go through. That final Valkyrie Queen fight is pretty challenging on Normal, but otherwise was a great game to go through. PS5: Bugsnax (Base Game) - On the other hand, this is a pretty average game with an okay gimmick, but is otherwise pretty shallow. Ii will also put down my idea for the final challenge. The only thing I could think of was the classic Vs challenge of: Earned amount of UR trophies during December. I think it's an appropriate challenge to do to finish off this event and end up with a single winner.
  5. Finally too the time to complete my list for this challenge. Yoku's Island Express was a great game to play through, through the collectibles are a bit annoying to go through if you haven't paid attention to them; especially the table scarabs. On the other hand, I was disappointed by Hakuoki. I wanted play it normally, but the beginning of the game bored me so much, I just did the quick skip. Shame. Still, thank you for the great idea for the challenge. List: 4X (explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate): Sid Meier's Civilization VI Action: Ratchet & Clank Adventure: Enslaved: Odyssey to the West Arcade: Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection Business: Grand Theft Auto III Card & Board Game: Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution Comedy: Saints Row: The Third Drama: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Educational: Trivial Pursuit Erotic: Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash Fantasy: The Order: 1886 Fighting: Mortal Kombat 11 Hack and slash/Beat 'em up: Diablo III: Reaper of Souls Historical: Yakuza 0 Horror: Resident Evil 5 Indie: Nexomon: Extinction Kids: Disney Infinity MOBA: N/A Music: Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F Mystery: L.A.

  6. I think we have a general consensus then. The challenge would the be plat or 100% (if already plat) 3 games on 3 different consoles. Need to earn at least 10 trophies (excluding the plat) for a game to be valid. I guess I worded it badly, but yes. For exemple, I plan to play Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st] for this challenge. It's technically a 3 platform list, but I want to use it as my Vita game for the month. In general, it would just be clarifying what console a game is used for if it has multiple written.
  7. My personal vote is for the full 4, but I'm okay only doing a 3 completions. Quick confirmations on the challenge: - Plat only or 100% required - What process are we using for multi-platforms; I'd recommend choosing which console to use - Can the games be already started or must they be brand new
  8. Finished the October challenge as well: - Bloodstained (27) - Splatterhouse (25) - Days Gone (23) What is the consensus for November: - 3 completions from 3 systems - 4 completions from 3/4 systems
  9. The way I saw it was counting stacks as the console of your choice; the example I used, Final Fantasy X HD, is listed as PS3, PS4 and PSV so it could count as a completion for whichever one console you wanted.
  10. So, seeing the consoles checklist we have, I have 2 propositions for the challenge. First way; we go with the 3 completions on different systems as was proposed. It's the simplest way, but it's a bit easy. Second way; we could also do 4 completions, but do as many consoles as possible. That way everyone but James has to go for the full range and James can just double down on 1 console of their choice. It would be a little more challenging, but I think it would still be doable and fit more for an end-game challenge.
  11. @James Tiger & @MAUSZX, do you have enough consoles / games if we were to do all 4 completions? Assuming that any game can count for any of the consoles the list is under (ex: Final Fantasy X HD can count as either PS4, PS3 or Vita). I don't see why Zombie Driver wouldn't count. I personally am ok with already started games as long as there's at least a couple of trophies to go and all the other requirements are valid.
  12. For the suggestion of reducing trophy stacks, I know that TT has that option in their leaderboards for only counting unique games. Just that simple check enables to see the massive difference that those games make. For exemple, Ikemenzi has 8.9M trophy XP. By only checking unique games, they have 3.6M. That is a major gulf between the two scores. Having those options would be a step in "hiding" those games; people that are not interested can check in and see a more representative leaderboard. It's not the end all be all, but it would be a step in the right direction.
  13. I'm about 2/3 thirds of the way through the challenge (currently 52). Bloodstained (27) is a great metroidvania that has a decent amount of post-game grinding and is a little difficult at the beginning, but is super worth it. On the other hand, Splatterhouse (25) is a pretty generic action game; kind of a weaker God of War. I did a full playthrough; might do the max difficulty playthrough / arenas later on, but not now. Just need to decide what to do for the rest; maybe Days Gone or Resident Evil 1. For the November challenge idea, I'm in; it's an interesting metric that hasn't been done yet. For my part, I have access to PS3, PS4 and PS5, so I'd be okay with 3 completions. If necessary, we could do as Maus raised and allow for cross-platform lists to fill in the gap (If you don't have enough consoles, go for something that has the missing console in that list). If we go by that, we could go for the full 4 if either 1: everyone has access to all gens by that caveat or 2: people have access to a PS5 and PS+ streaming for the PS3. Also, I think I have a good idea for the final challenge, but I want to think on it a bit before pitching it.
  14. I guess I will do the official post for October. Down to 4 people: @ArtikSkarab @James Tiger @Lumdubz (You technically asked for a switch, but since you did both of your original choices, I'm inclined to say it's okay) @MAUSZX Since there wasn't any argument against the proposed idea, we shall go with it October challenge: Obtain 75 trophies in ''Horror'' or ''Halloween'' games. The base idea is pretty simple: Horror games (both scary Horror and gory Horror) will count as well as games that represent Halloween pretty directly (Something like a Costume Quest though that game is invalid). If you don't know what games to use, here's a link to the horror category on PSNProfiles as a starting point. If you're still unsure if your game counts or you want to ask if it's Halloween focused enough, fell free to message here (for example, Lumdubz asked for Cult of the Lamb and I concurred with them).
  15. Fair enough; I guess I mostly only heard that it's more comedy than dark and that it doesn't have the horror tag on here. You got my vote for it.
