Dear Sly... (mate) - Trophy Calculations


Recommended Posts

Gday peeps,

 

Hope you all are playing heaps instead of sitting at a computer working on excel spread sheets! *ugh*

 

To the admin crew and/or the big chief Sly himself,

 

Can you advise how the trophy calculations adhere to your ranking system?

 

I'm of the notion that platinum trophies should, I guess in a sense, weigh more than a bronze trophy?

 

I assume (hate to assume because it makes an a** out of u and me - or so the saying goes) its based on the actual total numbers however would this be an opportunity to be looked at moving forward?

 

Feel free to delete/remove this post if it is not feasible and/or has already been posted similarly elsewhere.

 

Happy to discuss further.

 

Btw, keep up the great work. :)

 

Regards.

I see damon reading this and making this face :awesome:.

 

I don't understand what you're talking about. Your spot on the leaderboards is determined by the number of points you have, and the points you get differ depending on the trophy already.

I had the same doubt myself, it's about how the completion % is calculated. Done by points achieved out of points total possible or trophy count out of trophy total possible?

 

For the former, getting a gold or a platinum moves your % further than if you had achieved a bronze instead. For the latter, doesn't matter which trophy you got, your percentage would move the same % regardless.

 

I've done all the math my 3rd grade let me once and my trophy/trophy total count was .4% off, so I guessed it was done on points, but CBA doing all the adition of each list and such.

Platinum trophies don't count towards the completion percentage. Sly said it before... I'll search for the link.

Here it is

"Average completion" is just an average of percents.

 

"Completion" is based on points/available points, platinums are not included.

I thought that was toward the other statistic since the platinum doesn't move the game list's % up?

Regardless, that being the case, I guess the question would still stand, but harder to be answered since all plat trophy count/points should be removed from the math. Ehh.

:bronze: - 15 

:silver: - 30 

:gold: - 90 

:platinum: - 180 

 

These are the points you get. Is that what you are asking?

 

Thanks for this buddy - haven't seen it before. :)

Hmmm..

 

I guess my OP was in the sense that I was scoping around and seeing a few people at a higher ranking country/world wise and saw some achievers with 10 platinum's sitting higher than those on 20 platinum's shall we say.

 

I understand its about trophy count or completion (I know, I know).. for me, it's just interesting to see that some lets say hard-core gamers have completed games and achieved milestones and some have just played a few games midway if that, to be sitting at a higher ranking level.

 

Just my thoughts.

You mean you think amount of platinums should determine ranking?

I don't agree but fair enough, also btw that value system is for PSN and not just this website

Tell me about it, I get punished leaderboard-wise because I bother to finish my games.

I swear the third tab is for porn.

 

By the way, you can see on the very left side that the rank is made based on points, as they increase the higher rank the person is.

Fair enough mate - well, hey, if someone is willing to commit to completion of a game to get platinum - why not get the recognition?

 

Again, that's the reason I posted this - to see if it could be potentially implemented in the future however if its for PSN, then I'll knock on Sony's door :P

There's something wrong here... you shouldn't be listed on the clean leaderboards :awesome:

Just my thoughts.

If you have the same amount of points as someone else, it sorts you by number of platinums. If you have the same in both stats, it goes to golds and slivers.

We use the point values that Sony use.

If you're talking about the completion stat, it's based on trophy points. Platinums aren't included since they can't be earned by themselves, same as how they don't count to the percentage of a game.

Righto no worries thanks for the confirmation and everyone else's assistance. Much appreciated.

I understand the reasoning around not including platinum's in the completion stats.  However, purely for me including a platinum like any other trophy and rewarding the award of it on your completion stat would be better.

 

It makes no difference because it's not included in either side of the percentage calculation.

Hey mate,

Just to finalise and close this off (not having a go but I'll speak my mind) for any trophy we will need to adhere to a specific criteria in order to gain this.

Do you in your opinion agree that this criteria technically fits gaining a platinum trophy? I mean, we had to do x to get x hence x trophies to get x platinum?

Not critising or anything mate, just want to hear your personal thoughts on this and not what it currently sits as (ie Sony)

Thanks Sly.

Not really, it just symbolises having all base game trophies. Sony also don't include it in the percentage calculation.
