Dead Star Trophy List Discussion

46 posts in this topic

I'm guessing odds increase with paint jobs and character portraits filling up as well.

 

I'm pretty sure I got a duplicate paint job yesterday. :| 

 

I expect that getting contracts takes getting 2k in a category, since in game it says it's a possible reward for a high number of points in each category (but probably has a much lower drop rate than the specialists which I've got every time I've got 2k or near that).

Honestly, it would be very helpful if you could see statistics of you kills. :-|

 

Update. Nevermind. Found it.  :facepalm:

Some of the trophies are easy and some are not. But the game is very enjoyable!

I got 2 contracts on short time,

One i got with 1700 points on tactician random and one when i got to level 25.

 

I'm pretty sure that the drops for contracts are random, no matter how many points you achieve

Recent patch states that they increased drop rate for contracts and this weekend I have seen half a dozen capital ships warping to matches.

5 of those 6 capital ships had 4 lvl 10 justicars which were almost fully augmented. They just steamrolled everyone. In 2 matches they decided to go capture sectors and then destroyed home base.

So far I havent had luck on gettin contract.

"In 2 matches they decided to go capture sectors and then destroyed home base."

Woah, that's pretty crazy! I have to say, the Justicar does feel pretty overpowered, especially in groups. It's the obvious ship to choose if going for a capital ship run.

I seem to always get placed on the shittiest teams possible, even on 10v10. Just dumb players, even experienced, that don't know how to play the game and it's frustrating. Just one example, it's a biggish map with 6 bases to capture. I capture one point with no one following me. No one on my team goes to the adjacent one to capture it, while the other team has started to capture both nearby points. I start to venture further off and encounter the small enemy team, but of course by myself I can't take 3 ships on. My team still hasn't tried capturing the other yellow base. They're not even upgrading our home base. Just being fucking idiots. 

 

That has been my experience with this game so far. Pure frustration at the teams I get.

Oh dear. Would be awesome if we could form a crack team on here but having lots of different time zones would make it pretty difficult I imagine. It is frustrating when your team really don't pull their weight at all.

Yeah, like I'll have a few other level 10-20 players and they just have no idea what they're doing. 3 big ships will attack one of our bases and they will choose a small rinky dink ship and get killed multiple times. It's good to have some variety and small ships can be useful, but god damn, I was just in a game and I was the only one with a big ship defending our bases. Of course we get steam rolled when you need fire power to counter.

What's with the rush at the start to kill the Guardian ships? So many times I'm the only one flying to an Outpost at the very start of a match. There's Guardians at the neutral outpost that you can pop and level up from, not to mention capturing an Outpost gives you enough to go from level 2 to 3 in one shot. It's way more efficient then hunting down the tiny packs around the home base. 

 

I found that using the Stalker has helped a lot, as the EMP field is like putting up a big "SHOOT HERE" sign for your team. I was one kill away from Untouchable just using the Stalker with one ally in a Vindicator while defending a base over the weekend.

I am down to just killstreak = 10 and level = 50. Some notes:

 

1. The level 50 trophy is the grindy one. I am only level 36 now, and I've heavily exploited three XP boost weekends, so you can see everything else fits inside that with lots of room to spare.

 

2. The capital ship trophies are extremely luck-based. You get a contract at 25 and 50, and you can also get rare random drops (nb: does not require 2000 in a category). What happens on your escape run is swingy. You can gather the best crew in the world, jump into a disaster area that's just comets pounding your ship for 5 minutes, and lose when one hits your core. Or you can make your first jump into a 10v10 that's almost complete, and 20 high-level guys just dismantle you with no hope of victory. Or maybe you get a total milk run the very first time. (Giant Killer is also very luck based, but at least there a good crew can do a lot more to help you.)

 

3. The main skill trophy is killstreak of 10. (As you can see, I'm lucky but not good!) The thing about this one is, you could actually boost it for two people in about a minute once you got yourself in the same match on opposite teams, which might take a few tries. (Message me at PSN ID rdhight if you want to do this!) But getting it the hard way can be a long fight.

 

So there you have it: Lifer, Contract Runner, Untouchable. One grind, one luck, one skill. If you get those three, you'll probably already have everything else along the way. If you're going to attempt Dead Star, I recommend doing so ASAP while there are still a few newer players to kill; if you wait until it gets down to just a hard core and then come in as the only new guy, anything kill-related could be just brutally slow going.

2. I think you can destroy the comets if I'm not mistaken. Some guy on our team was knocking the comets out before they hit our base. It was with one of the miner ships, but I think it is possible to destroy them. Unfortunately, I've always have had the opposite happen when a ship spawns in one of my games. All four times that it has happened, the highest level on our team will be a 7 and the ship will be 10s. 

 

3. Killstreak of 10 is not hard. Any ship will do, but I like the leviathan. Join a 10v10, start the match out by mining/destroying the neutral yellow guys near your base to level up fast. Upgrade your leviathan and make sure one of the upgrades is the escape. Then hang out a bit on the periphery of fire fights. If things get too crazy, escape with your boost. The leviathan's cannon is very powerful and I always upgrade it first. Repeat until you get 10 kills. 

 

It is unfortunate this game will soon be basically unplattable in 6 months time since the grind to lvl 50 is so slow and would rely on regular players. Awesome game, though. Glad I got into it now.

I actually have a best killstreak of 9 with multiple ships; just can't... quite... get there!

Yeah, I think this is definitely the best time to be into Dead Star that we will ever get. Three new ships coming out soon, extra XP events happening, and the playerbase hasn't tipped over into all godlike pilots with all level 25 ships yet. Gonna be absolute murder to come in as a new guy a year from now.

Damn, I got two more 10 kill streaks today. I dunno, a good rule of thumb is if you're 1-2 levels higher than an enemy you will win the fight, but if you're a level below you will most likely lose.

 

A capital ship spawned today and it was super weak. It was right at the end of the battle too so both our teams were heavily powered up. Destroyed everything and just had to get the core. The health is going down, going down, then escapes...fuck this game.

The 2 capital ship destruction trophies I got were against solo players who obviously used their contracts not knowing what it involved. I felt terrible watching them fly around in a razor trying to fend of about 15 attacking players. Checked their profiles afterwards to make sure they weren't interested in trophies to alleviate my guilt.

lol. 

 

I got lucky the other day with a capital ship spawn. It had a full team but they were weak and it spawned at the end of the match. We crushed it, but the other team had a better set of players and they were the ones who ended up destroying it so no trophy unlock. Sigh.

Well i have 2 contracts atm. Assuming first one goes well, i was thinking it might be possible to use the other to help boost anyone who needs it. It would involve meeting at a time when the servers are most quiet, perhaps even limiting it to one server region. Then you would just have to hope i loaded into your match. Which isnt that unlikely, i dont think many people are playing this game. Just an idea anyway. If what people say is true about getting a guaranteed contract at level 50, then i could do the same with that one.

That would be nice. 

 

Just had another contract ship spawn, but this time our team was dominating. I was there when the finishing shot was fired. We had maybe four blue ships around it and I couldn't see a red one. Got the Exp bonus (so our team destroyed it?), but no trophy unlock for destroying the ship. Do you have to be the one that fires the finishing shot to get the trophy?

No you dont. As long as someone on your team gets the final shot, you all get the trophy. I wasn't putting damage on the core when i got it, been confirmed by a couple of people in another thread too. There must have been an opposing player you couldn't see damaging the core. Thats really unlucky to destroy as many as you have and still not get the trophy tho.

Wow, that's complete bullshit. I mean there was probably 1 red ship to our 4 blue ships. Ridiculous we didn't get the last shot.
