I need help with hacked online level trophies

26 posts in this topic

Hello,

Me and my boosting partner were playing the capture mission for leveling up in "Public - Invite only" session  

My boosting partner got disconnected due to the connectivity issue.

I was moved to the public lobby (without my will), two or three trophies poped, and at the same time the level had started to increased from 13.

I have turned it off my ps3 at level 32 and I haven't turned back on my ps3 since this incident.

 

My phone was next to me and I have recorded the scene.

And the below link is my rockstar social club. Unfortunately, I see the three trophies from social club. 

https://ko.socialclub.rockstargames.com/member/ellieeeeeaeeeeee

Here is my question, I haven't sync my trophies from ps3. Can I still delete my GTA5 online account as well as my psn id not to sync the trophies on psnprofile? And most important thing, i will be banned from psnprofile?

 

Ps. I have hided GTA5(2 trophies except the level trophies) along with AC unity(1%), RDR(40%), and Rachet and Clank(20%) to make my psnprofile looks clean. 

 

 

The mission we were using: http://rsg.ms/2a8f88d

I think if you delete your account on the PS3 it'll get rid of the trophies but if you have plus they do automatically sync at some point, I'm not entirely sure that works so I would get someone else's opinion.

Luckily, I did not renew my psn+ this month.

As far as I’m aware there’s no way to avoid this because even if you deleted your profile on ps3 then reinstalled the game, the rockstar club will still think you earned the trophies and pop them as soon as you load the game up

Can I delete my account from Rockstar Social Club? Will it be resolved by that?

People contact Rockstar to restore their profile back to the way it was, however it's unclear how long they take to do that. Also @LuciaRosethorn, you can easily avoid syncing PS3 trophies for most games, I only really sync when I decide to on PS3 and never have issues with trophies auto-syncing for me. You can toggle the auto update option with PS+ on and off. From what I've heard, chilling out at the XMB while being signed into PSN will eventually sync your trophies, otherwise if you start the game up while you're signed into PSN then that will also sync the trophies. On PS4 there's no way to avoid syncing online trophies so when shit like this happens on PS4, consider yourself screwed if you play that game online.

@Ellieeeeeaeeeeee Don't worry about the R* social club page, that doesn't mean it's synced on Sony's servers. I had a game freeze near the beginning of my Max Payne 3 campaign and I had earned a few trophies up to that point. I was having a bad day, and feeling really frustrated so I just slapped the switch at the back of my PHAT and ended up corrupting the hard drive. The social club showed that I earned these trophies, but obviously after re-formatting I lost my save and had to download an older one from cloud. None of the trophies sycned on Sony's server either despite showing on R* social club, those are both tracked independently. Once I started over and re-earned those trophies, the social club page reflected the newer timestamps as opposed to the original ones.

 

Also in my experience R* get back to you within a couple of working days (at least for GTA V and this was mid-summer 2017).

Thank you for the comments.

 

I have submitted a ticket to Rockstart support to restore my status back to original and deleted my main user profile from my ps3.

 

I also have re-created my main profile and confirmed that three level trophies are not on my trophy list.

 

Save data from GTA5 is gone now, but the data from GTA5 is still on my ps3. Do I need to delete this data and reintall all the updates? Or i can play gta5 online now?

 

I am also surprised that even playing in "invite only - public" is not safe enough from the hackers. What other options do we have to avoid the hackers?

 

Thank you all in advance.

No need to uninstall game data, as that has no relevance to your game progression. Don't play online on GTA V until you've heard a response from R*, otherwise your online data will remain the same and those trophies will instantly auto-pop again.

 

You can play any other game in the meantime!

Mods on psnprofiles said that getting level trophies seconds from each other in GTAV will NOT result in being flagged. The only thing that can get you into trouble is getting Run Like The Wind trophy on PS3 version but they also said that you won't get flagged now but if there will ever be a whitelisting function on psnprofiles it will be whitelisted.

Isn't this analogous to the RDR lvling glitch so you should be fine?

If you can tell me who do i need to contact to, it will be appreciated. 

 

I would like to confirm this matter from one of mods for the future reference.

 

As you know, it can be happned to any players who currently playing gta5 online with ps3s.

 

Thank you in advance.

I am not sure about this. If one of mods from psnprofile can confirm this, it will be very helpful.

Not played the game, but play private or something with friends? Earning Run Like The Wind now will probably get your list whitelisted and whatever follows from that in the future.

 

I honestly don't care that much about these online trophies, but there's certain offline stuff you can easily get flagged for if you use downloaded saves etc.

You received a helpful reply from an AAA publisher. That should be worth some trophies IMO.

Thank you for your reply.

Rockstar has restored my original level and I am also able to delete (or not synced) the level trophies.

I am at level 15 now. I've been doing capture job with my alt.

Yes, I hope Rockstar soon have patch for the bounty feature for GTA5 ps3.

There is a thing that i dont understand at all, 

 

you tried very hard to put your game to the state before level hacking contacting rockstar, opening a thread, speaking mods etc. and resolved your problem.. 

 

after all of this,  in the end you still got "Run like the wind" which is impossible to get without hacked lobbies.. there is a sheer contradiction here and my mind is about to blow up cause of this..

I have tried my best to avoid hackers and It was impossible to do that even I play in "invite only" sessions.

 

I have played "Heist missions" around 2 weeks so far with my friends from Greece, Mexico, and USA.

I have kicked out at least 5 times before we could even start the heist session due to connectivity issues everyday.

After failing to start the session, I automatically have moved to either public lobby or stay in the invite only lobby. (around 50%/50% chance)

Even during the loading screen to the public lobby, the hackers place the bounties on the players or dropping money before you even noticed.

 

Please see the below image that we have encountered on 4/17/2018.

A player has placed bounties on all the players in the lobby.

I do not know about the hacked lobby,  however this was happened on a normal public lobby.

This image is from my friend from Mexico :)

I've played with @Ellieeeeeaeeeeee on Assassin's Creed games and he seemed a legit player to me, so I believe his story about GTA:O, myself having experienced in first hand getting thrown out to modded public lobbies if you get a connection error while playing in private-invite only lobby.

please dont take me wrong @Ellieeeeeaeeeeee, my purpose is not to point you as a target. Legit players are apparent by their profiles, what they say etc. and i believe you too but these kinda cases has become a big problem to the community and need to be solved soo I just used this perfect example in a thread about white listing..

The only way to get RLTW now is through hackers who, in public lobbies, place a bounty on you. 

 

Given that Rockstar don't want to fix it, this method is to be considered fine as it's the only way to unlock the trophy. ALL of the latest achievers got it this way, but any discussion about the legitimacy of this trophy is pointless.

 

Players deserve to get the trophy this way, it's all Rockstar's fault, end of the story.

The problem is it leads encouraging hackers unwillingly over the pure gamers' plea.. I cant see any difference between getting a trophy about a closed server through programming file etc and this. If it is unobtainable then it is UNOBTAINABLE, that much simple!! 

We cant get everything we deserve in life you know, i also want a 100 % completed gta 5 in my profile which is just one of the two games but it is UNOBTAINABLE and full of hackers.. Great Rockstar's present to us for buying 90 million copies
