Run like the wind confusion

27 posts in this topic

I really want to get all the gta platinums but this trophy is worrying me. Lots of people have got it this year so idk if there's a reasonable solution or not still. I don't want to have my psnp account banned or my gta v trophies hidden or anything like that.

 

If you just happen to find a lobby with a modder who does it, would that be bannable or anything or is there really no way to get it? When i start online, i was planning on only playing in solo sessions until level 100 just so i don't get ranked up instantly and get those trophies. 

 

I've read around but it's hard to find a clear answer, it's a pretty grey area. Basically, if you get the trophy now, is anything going to happen to your account or is it safe to server hop and hope you get a bounty or something?

If you want the PS3 platinum and haven't gotten that trophy, it's currently unobtainable. Don't try to seek to get the trophy, because then you risk getting flagged for it. Everyone who gets it might at some point have the entire game not count on their stats, and if they are caught seeking the trophy and getting it that way, they'll get flagged for it.

Instead of opening a new thread every time to ask the same questions about RLTW just read the other topics or post your question there. There are at least 4-5 threads talking about the same thing...

 They don't even have to search for anything 😂...as soon as you open the GTA V forum section you'll see plenty of threads named "Run Like The Wind something"...

Someone who only has two posts, both in this thread and has been a forum member for two months was unlikely to have navigated that way to make the thread.

 

Either way, it’s not going to change. The best course of action when you see such a new member doing this is just giving them some helpful advice on how to use the site better in the future.

 

This is of course avoiding my gripe of still not having a clear and concise standpoint. Even in this thread, there is an implied answer, but it’s still not as clear as it should be. I don’t know why the answer isn’t just “you will be flagged for obtaining RLTW after the server shutdown date until further notice.”

Exactly, Daiv. I did look at the other posts but since all the latest achievers are from 2019 and the fact i didn't find an explicit yes or no answer, i made the post to see if there was any current news on it. 

 

I've just decided to forget about it and add it to the list of other unobtainable plats i have. I'm sure if there was a proper answer, there wouldn't be so many posts about it too. Hopefully something is worked out eventually so i'll be able to get all the gta plats for my cabinet but i have too many unobtainable plats for it to matter anymore.

I'm not going to flag it.  I'd rather not deal with the headache.  I'm with @Sergen on this TBH.

Sorry for adding to the headache, grimy. My thought is that because you technically could still get it legit if you had a bounty before it got removed and haven't played since, as well as how you could unwillingly get a bounty put on you at random, i don't think it should be flagged. It would just make it easier since not everyone who's gotten it recently necessarily cheated it, so instead of having to figure out how everyone got it, you just don't have to worry about it anymore. 

 

I don't know if this would be allowed or anything but you could just keep changing servers until there's a modder and be lucky to get a bounty or something. I know you could just message them, which i wouldn't, but still. It'd kind of be like trying to get an npc to give you a bounty or something like that. 

 

Not trying to persuade you or anything, that's just my thought.

I've been on the record on how I feel about this particular trophy for a while.  I don't flag folks on this game, unless they blatantly hack the trophies (messing up story trophies etc).  If you feel like playing the game, go for it.  I'm saying I'm not going to flag this game, should someone try to report you.  If folks have a problem with that, IDC LOL

This website really needs a whitelist feature. None of the flag team really want / like to hand out flags for this game.

 

However, you'll be flagged if one or more of the following occurs:

  • You cheated offline GTA V trophies.
  • You personally used CFW.
  • Proof provided that "extreme" interaction with modders happens.

If the whitelist function ever happens, everybody benefiting from someone's modded bounty will be soft flagged for the game with near 100% certainty. (Depending on how it works)

 

There is merit in both the pro flag groups and the anti flag groups arguments which are "it's not fair to people who earned it legitimately" vs "people should still be allowed to play a game without fear etc". The best compromise is a whitelist.

Trophy hunters who know it's impossible to earn beforehand, with the goal of getting 100% or platinum before starting, really shouldn't fall under this protection. 

 

 

What are you going to do? Get a trained psychologist on the cheater team and get them to interrogate people to see if they knew about the trophy being unobtainable or not?

 

If it's whitelisted for some people, it should be whitelisted for all.

It would be, of course.

 

Edit: I'm not implying a whitelist shouldn't protect everybody, I'm just frustrated with the hypocrites who want to use this situation to their benefit.

You can replace whitelisted by 'flagged' to be honest. That some people can feign ignorance and can escape with this trophy while others are flagged boggles the mind.

Stop making a fuss about it. As I said before, this trophy is not flaggable considering that some players have actually received a bounty before the feature was disabled, thus granting them the trophy automatically as soon as they launched the online portion even after it became unobtainable. On the other hand, if you really want to consider flagging this trophy then go ahead, but please make sure you also flag all those who got How The West Was Won from RDR in 1 hour...my point is just to prove that some trophies should be ignored given that it's almost impossible to determine the circumstances that led to the trophy unlock so please enough with the pointless talk and focus on trophies that are actually hacked...

Who determines this? For example, as a person who earned RLTW legitimately myself I don’t find any unfairness in people getting that trophy today by doing the exact same thing (survive 48 minutes online with a bounty on their head) as I did 5+ years ago.

I'd imagine if the feature ever gets implemented the flag team would have an option to hit "whitelist" instead of "cheat." It's possible it would be an automated process, but that's probably not the way to go, since we're not only talking about GTA V when it comes to needing a whitelist. As of right now, its wishful thinking.

 

As the existing rules are laid out, anyone who benefits from CFW, which they would by getting the bounty placed on them, has cheated. Technically, everyone should be flagged, but we don't want to go that route. Regardless of your opinion, people earning this are in violation of the leaderboard rules, so a whitelist is the fair thing to do for this game and others with similar problems. You seem to acknowledge they're earning it differently since you mention you did it legitimately.

TBH, you'd have your stats on the whitelist category.

@B1rvine seems like you didn't read my post if you keep saying that "technically everyone should be flagged" and "people earning this are in violation of the leaderboard rules". I even put the sentence in bold letters, thought it was clear enough.

Nope, I just used the word “legitimately” because it was in the quoted part of your post I was replying to, to show that you shouldn’t speak on behalf of every person you put into that “legitimate owners of RLTW” category.

 

And speaking of “earning it differently”. Trophy requirement itself is pretty clear: “Survive with a Bounty on your head”, notGet bounty and survive…”. So unless CFW or mod menu was used to unlock that trophy instantly without surviving part, I don’t see what exactly is “not fair” to me in case of some person earning RLTW today by fulfilling that requirement.

@Se7en I said I'm not going to flag people for this.  To my knowledge, you still have to survive 48 straight minutes (I think?) online.

Correct. Regardless of how you get your bounty, you still have to fulfill the requirements for the trophy, that is, surviving 48 minutes straight. As soon as you are placed the bounty you can also go to a private session and survive there.
