Top Trophy Hunters Retiring?

Posted (edited)

It's really sad to see how much hatred can arise out of a simple hobby. Read all comments, i am totally neutral here and it somehow feels weird. Shouldn't we all act like a team? I always loved this about the community. The fact, that everybody helps each other. I always try to help others, write guides and answer threads because in the first place it's our hobby and i always want that my knowledge of games helps others. This works in both directions. We should all focus on what we do best, this is to be a supporting community, because that's what counts in the end. This page helps me for years with great guides, and threads. And i love to be a part of this, so let's get back to the core. 

 

Just in case I will be at the pranger one day in the future: I had help by a friend with Asphalt Injection and I love to play couch coop games with my wife, so technically my account is a team account :-)

Agreed. I spend more time helping other people by doing guides than my own personal trophy hunting. Do I really mind it? Nah not really. I get more satisfaction from helping the community instead and making a difference when I can. It's not easy sometimes but it's good to see how my efforts have helped others regardless. :)

PSNP forums is getting more and more toxic over the years, like who cares if someone decide to stop trophy hunting, its their decision.

You know all of this time could of been spent earning a plat or 2...............

 

Seriously though I do love trophy hunting myself but I'm not as hardcore as the 2k plat blitzers and never will be, casual hunter at best.  I play more games I love and like to have me a rain of trophies on an easy slutty dirty cheap plat in between. One thing is for sure I'll be will be a gamer until I die and it will always be more about the fun factor for me but as for the leaderboards I've never been bothered by them.  Fair play to all that do enjoy getting up there and if you enjoy it crack on!  Myself i just couldn't be arsed with that in any shape or form, it must be a constant stressful ballache to maintain it.

 

Life is far too short for all this, we are here for a good time not for a long time!  Don't forget to LIVE

Well I don't think there's a shift that'll happen in the trophy community as the OP said (remember way back then) but I gotta say after reading this argument it definitely has made me feel pretty bummed out about trophy hunting. 

I am a live and let live kinda guy, if you enjoy hunting trophies all your life then it's all good, but I definitely think there are some people who have gone too far, it's gone beyond being a hobby to becoming an unhealthy obsession in my mind.

Think I'll take a little reset break, maybe bust out some command and conquer skirmish on the ps1 this weekend!

Saw it coming, there is only so much shit you can play before you get burned out.

 

Why dont you talk to Sony about it. If anyone has a chance to get through to them and fix the trophy system it would be the top trophy hunters.

Being in the top 15.000 on almost 4.000.000 gamers tracked, I'm obviously also a top trophy hunter. I retired on the 31st of August 2018. But in the beginning of this year I kind of came out of retirement. I feel like I'm semi retired right now.

Yes, agreed. @Hakoom and @Roughdawg4 should kiss and make up, and then work together as a team to petition Sony to fix the trophy system we’re plagued with in this day and age.

I mean once you keep doing something over and over you'll soon get tired of it. I thought it before when viewing their profiles. I'll make it simple from my perspective. 

 

Trophies Before The Game = Loosing The Experience of the Game and loosing game enjoyment. 

Games Before The Trophy = Enjoyment and Immersion of the Game while obtaining achievements to push you to better explore what the game has to offer.

But why? Despite the small drama (which is hopefully over) OPs "question" remains open for comments.

Not that I ever check the leader boards, but just noticed today that @Roughdawg4 was no longer number 1.  Then saw this thread.  Interesting subject to discuss as I wondered how much longer the leaders would keep up the pace to stay at the front of the pack.  Just wanted to thank the leaders for letting me come along for the ride, enjoying their competition!

 

Funny how some people feel their opinion is so important on someone's personal decision.  Stuff like this just fires up the crazies I guess. :rolleyes:

I don't really consider myself to be in competition with anyone but I can see how getting burnt out can happen if you prioritise gaining trophy quantity way above your personal enjoyment of the games you are playing.

 

Props to people that put time and dedication into being the best at accumulating trophies, but I'll always proritize the game itself over the trophies. If I enjoy the game, i'll aim for 100% or the Plat. If not, i'll play it to it's conclusion and move on.

 

We should probably not slam each other based on our trophy hunting preferences though, or the guys the OP was referencing.

I have so much respect for roughdawg. Listened to his podcast a while back and he sounded like a normal guy with a normal life he also said he made no money from trophy hunting. He did it for fun. Its a shame that the fun as disapeared. It was always gonna happen tho. Agree with people saying people like him could make the trophy system even better in the future
