Thoughts on trophies?

20 posts in this topic

Looks like one of the easiest platinums ever. Hell - MLB The Show 20's was incredibly straightforward outside of the Silver 1 rank-up which took a bit to grind. This year the plat rate could be north of 10% tbh

Yes, I saw this on truetrophies the other day.  Looks really easy (and quick).  Could be north of 20% potentially.

 

From a quick scan, nothing difficult or really that time-consuming.  In fact, I can’t come up with what will be the rarest trophy (outside the platinum).

 

I will definitely pick this up at some point this year, once I get a ps5 that is!

Have it already pre loaded on PS5.

 

looks like one of the easiest trophy list for The Show. Only one that will be troublesome for me is walking 8 times in a game. Don't think I have ever walked more than 3 or 4 times n a single game in past games.

Yeah, the walk-related trophies and the 10-pitch at-bat ones are the only ones that look remotely tricky... aside from that it looks way easier than any other year of The Show. Might actually plat one of these games for once!

 think the 10 pitch at-bat was also in mlb 14 the show, if sliders are allowed turn up the fouls and it should be a cake walk

i be picking this up and double stack it,  looks easy for the plat

Looks very easy! Only tricky one looks to be 10 pitches in one at bat. MLB The Show 14 on Vita had the exact same trophy and it was very annoying.

How easy are these to do vs. AI usually? Never done a The Show game before? I know you can't do split screen for most.

You guys are forgetting the pickoff one. That is not easy. You can't use 2 controllers or do it in a local game.

It is hard to pick off the CPU. This would be easier in RS.

That is a luck based trophy. Don't sleep on it!!!

Otherwise this list is uninspired and 2K lazy as they recycled about 5 trophies and gave them different names.

I do think the pick off one will be hard as it is luck base against the cpu I don’t even try to pick off runners. But you can probably play someone online so it maybe easy to do it that way.

For pickoff you just turn up the slider on cpu base running aggressiveness and then it’s easy.

Considering that this year doesn't include a really grindy trophy, it should be pretty easy!

I do like that they added the trophy for hitting 100 Home Runs. I wonder if home runs in the HR derby count towards that?

Good list. I'll get it next year or something. They're all the same anyway, I'll just get this one when it's cheap because it has an easy trophy list!

Probably the easiest MLB list I've seen (managed to plat 3 of the last 4 -- stopped play 19 early). Feels like these can be mostly done organically with minimal grinding which is nice.

 

Pickoff and walk one probably the two trickiest. I'll probably get both via online at some point (always find people who take too big a lead off second)

Says any mode, so I would imagine HR Derby would count!

 

Looks like a great list.  Haven't done a baseball game in a long time.  Might pull the trigger.  Would be great to add more variety to my library.

Easiest MLB The Show platinum. 

 

Kinda wish they would bring back the Ranked Seasons trophy to keep it at an Ultra Rare

They do.

 

I was watching PS5 Trophies stream card openings and playing Home Run Derby online and he was able to get some of the home run trophies.

 

 

I think at the very least, you might be able to boost or have someone help you with nearly all the trophies such as pickoffs or 8 walks.
The description just says:

Quote

(This trophy is not awarded if completed in a local multiplayer game, practice mode, or by switching teams

 

The way I read this is that if you challenge a friend to a online game such as exhibition or DD, you can just boost the trophies you need. 

I don't have the game so I can't test it out unfortunately.

That may work for the walk trophy. The pick off I am not to worried about. I have picked of runners before in other versions of the game. I've been playing the series for 10 plus years and have never got patient enough to draw a lot of walks. 3 or 4 is probably the max I have ever got in a game. The Home runs I know will come naturally over the course of the game.
