Petition to unlock MK 9 online trophies

18 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I appreciate the idea and would love to see it come to fruition but this is simply never going to happen. The devs aren't going to return to an ancient game with closed servers and patch it to make the online trophies obtainable again, just so a tiny minority can get their Platinum. All you can do chalk this game up as a loss and move on.

As HuntingFever said, this will do absolutely nothing. While I do sympathize with you, truly I do and I wish all online trophies would have a harder, offline/singleplayer way of unlocking them (ala Mass Effect) they closed down the servers for a reason. Could be to make people move onto the new installment or to save the pennies it cost them to keep them alive or fearing that online will be breached and some data may be exposed or something else entirely, either way it will not come back. 

 

Unless somebody will find a way to host the servers and that solution will be open source (due to PSNP rules) I'd just move on, not much can be done here since they closed the server intentionally.

This should have been done as soon as the server was shut down. Too late.

This is another unfortunate casualty of the "glorious digital gaming future" that we have all financially supported in one way or another over the years. It is definitely sad that developers and publishers weren't forward-thinking enough to account for the servers eventually going offline while the game was being made. Just like all the GOTY compliation discs that bundle codes instead of putting everything on disc, once the stores eventually go offline, poof, that's it.

 

Imagine where we would be right now if games, early after the introduction of trophies, would have been required to offer obtainable alternatives, such as single-player achievements or a "bots only" offline multiplayer mode where you can still grind out the online trophies. There's a whole rabbithole of solutions that could have accounted for almost everything but the online-only "MMO" type of games. Sadly we have our current reality of unobtainable trophies instead. Hopefully for your sake, somebody puts together an open-source server someday so that you can complete the game.

I've seen a number of these petitions in my time and whilst I appreciate the intentions behind it may be good, it won't achieve anything. Trophy hunters represent a very small percentage of gamers as a whole and the devs have nothing to gain from releasing a patch just to pop trophies for a small percentage of players. Best to use that energy to try and get some platinums that aren't out of reach.

How many petitions such as this have worked in the past? As far as I know - zero - and I don't see a reason why this would be any different.

 

While I'd love for it to happen, I just don't see it happening

Never gonna happen. Imagine how cool would be if magically every online trophy from any closed server just popped in your profile? We wouldn't have thousands of unobtainable platinums. And I'm sure that there's always a group of people to each one of these thousand games that thought this same idea.

I would love to platinum Portal 2, Midnight Club Los Angeles, Gran Turismo 5 and at least 20 more games. But it won't happen even if they could do it.

Hey guys. Id like to thank everyone who made suggestions and constructive criticisms. I already changed the title and objective of the petition. Now it aims to make the online trophies non-mandatory rather than unlocking them for everyone.Thank you all

Non-mandatory? How would that possibly work? Its very unlikely they will change server status and even less likely they will change the trophy list requirements. As Fawlty says, it takes away from those that did the requirements in the first place. MKX had the invasions fixed (whether the petition helped or not is anyones guess) because the game is still active but MK9 had been dead a while before the servers went down.

 

It sucks when you get locked out a Plat, i have several on my list including this, but everyone needs to suck it up, take it on the chin and move on. Looking for other ways leads to wasted time and folk trying workarounds etc through frustration. Sorry if it seems harsh but its true, this won't work especially for games of this age.

Sorry to say this but it looks like you don't even know how the trophy system works and you are going against its principles... First asking to unlock the online trophies without any other requirements and later changing it to making them "non-mandatory".... As many other people have said the only possible options could be re-open the servers or making another offline requirements to unlock the trophies, nothing else...

 

Anyways, if this miraculously works I would like something similar for MKvsDC...

I must have at least 20 games on my profile with unobtainable trophies because the servers are gone, you just have to accept it because a petition isn't going to do anything

Are you saying that you want the online trophies to not be mandatory for the platinum? I don't think that Netherrealm or Warner Bros can actually do that since platinum trophies are unlocked by getting 100% of the trophies. I think your best bet would be to appeal to them to change the online trophies into single player ones. Other games have done that so it's possible but I still doubt they'd do it since there's no money to be gained.

Would be cool, but likely will not happen. I signed it anyway 😉

Why are so many playstation games so entitled they feel they are owed platinums they haven't met the criteria for?
