True Commitment has me feeling so numb.

40 posts in this topic

I'm solo boosting, getting around 30K a match. I did the math, and that's around 1.6% of the total exp needed for level 60. I'm 15% of the way there and I'm already bored to tears. 

 

I guess by "True Commitment" they mean commitment to the platinum.

Have you never done any grinding in a game before? Watch some videos or listen to music as you're playing and it'll go by much faster.

Yeah, but this grind is especially boring. Normal grinding is just whatever. This grind is just eh.

 

I'm just going to do a couple of matches a day so I don't go crazy lol.

You're lucky you're only having to reach max level once for this trophy.  I did the MP back when this game was released, and had to prestige 3 or 4 times in order to unlock the General character, who thankfully isn't needed anymore. 

 

THAT was boring! 😂

For me it´s worse that I have to do a new playthrough mainly because of the shitty conversations I didn´t know before

It’s not that bad in comparison to many other games. Trying filling in the sphere grid in Final Fantasy X... *shudders*

This grind is light in comparison to a lot of others 😄 2500 kills in UC2 is way worse, and you need at least 6 people to do it. The most kills you got was 10 per match at about 20 minutes per match. At least you can do this on your own. I watched a complete season of Dexter while I did it and it didn’t bother me at all.

 

The VR missions in MGS2 are painful and driving 1000 miles in Mafia II. Try 10002 kills in Battlefield lol and you’ll see this is eeeeeasy... 😂

10k? I wish. I'm working on the 40k DLC trophies for Battlefield Hardline on nearly dead servers.

 

Now THATS grinding.

Grinding for this trophy reminded me of Assassin's Creed Black Flag solo wolfpack grinding. Brutal!

Fortunately with Tomb Raider you can avoid the idle kick penalty by pausing / unpausing the game.
Set the controller to turbo the Start button (or just press Start every 20 seconds) and play FFA mode all day long and just get XP from winning the match over and over while you actually play something else.

Otherwise the grind gets old. At least the prestige isn't needed anymore, phew.

Edit: The only downside is ... well Sony thinks Tomb Raider was my 2nd most played game last year at 96 hours in the 2017 recap email. At least 2/3 of that time was idle boosting the XP.

Can you set up turbo on a standard PS3 controller without using a computer or anything?

Fuck Star Ocean trophies lol. 

 

I remember playing on the 360 and completely ignoring achievements because of how ridiculous they were. I somehow have the PS3 version, but I will never put it on my profile.

If you'll live through that, though, you emerge a changed man. With one hell of a grind resistance, if not an immunity.

I had a method where you need at least two people and you’d get like 70-80k for a 20min match

This was actually fun to me. I got so good at it, that I was only 3 rounds away from winning a solo match of Wolfpack on the highest difficulty once before I ran out of time.

No way I have the patience to do it all in one sitting. I can do like 2 hours and then I need a sanity break.

I'm doing this atm. Boring is the word. Feels like I've been doing it forever, and I'm only just about half way through, at 850k xp.

Watching The Expanse to get through it lol!

Pfft. Youngsters. Back in MY day, grinding was winning 50000 battles against a dragon in a wall for one of 300 in-game battle trophies.
