Why do we need to be shamed with a ”H” if we hide a game...?

41 posts in this topic

Why can’t you copy it like on ps4 console? Just show the progress but hide the game, instead of ”this player has hidden 200 trophies from their profile” maybe our kids has played or we regret playing a game. I think this ”H” thing ruins our profile, it makes it look suspicious when in fact i just want to hide/regret playing a game... i lost motivation to continue because games couldn’t be hidden properly

Imanually manipulated your trophy stats. Any shame you feel is self-imposed. 

 

I just think if you hide it, it should be hidden completely like on ps4. Because if it still shows ”H” and amount of trophies hidden, it’s not hidden. At least let us hide completely if we want

I mean, I know other people may think differently, but when I see the "H" tag, I think exactly what you said - that this person regrets playing a game. Does she regret it because she cheated? Does he regret it because his cousin played a shitty game? I don't really judge the follow-up reason.

@BeautifulTorment  Not true.  Some of us have games hidden because they will not sync up with the damn network.

I hide games because either I will never bother finishing them, or they were games that I played with my daughter since they were co-op type games. Yea I don't like the whole "hide" function but hey people can judge all they want as it won't make me feel bad. I know why I hide things an I don't care what others think when they see an "H" on my account. Though I disagree with the system's way of hiding games as the games are still on your trophy list in there. To be honest I just wish there was a way to fully delete a trophy list so you aren't always seeing the games on the systems. xD

It's not shaming anyone, it's letting people know and for the site to change the stats correctly. You also need to remember a lot of cheaters hide trophies so that also helps the cheat team since people can hide up to 3 games. 

 

If it upsets you that much then you shouldn't have started those games or just unhide them, it's just a simple H. Not like it's ruining you life.

Why not have a designation (A different colored H or another letter) of those who had to hide games due to the Cheater Removal Team.  That way any player who has hidden games, either because they wanted to or because they will not sync, would not be all in one group?

Ah, the monthly "you have an H so you must be a cheater" thread.  Really, people?  So what if someone hides their games.  *sigh*

All I think when I see my H is "so glad those shit games are not on here."

 

As for seeing it on other people's profiles I just figure they have that same regret of crap games. But mostly I barely notice it on other profiles.

I don't feel any shame. I even list what is hidden and why in my About Me for those that clench their asses real tight at seeing the Blue H.

Geez.  It's either easy plats or hidden games.  Someone's always gotta complain about something.

 

I actually considered hiding my easy plats once I passed a certain mark, but I'm keeping them.  Sometimes it's nice to play a stupid easy game to cleanse the pallet, for lack of a better phrase.  I do joke it's shameful that my #38-47 plus others are easy, but hey.

 

As long as you aren't a little cheating jerkwad, trophy however you want to trophy.  I mean, you play games for enjoyment after all.

Not really, as then it could just be shown to staff. It's there to communicate how many hidden trophies the player have on their profile. That's it.

H stands for Hannah Montana: The Movie.

 

Because back in the day, having hidden trophies implied that you had either that game or Termination Salvation (according to arrogant trophy hunters with hundreds of platinums)

I dont have a problem with the H, I know most people probably hide trophies for all sorts of reasons

 

I hid a game so my trophy cabinet on my profile is more what I want because I never really payed attention to the milestones before. 

 

I think imo the majority(not all) that feel shame are the ones that were hacking or cheating and it's a reminder to them.

Funny, have some hidden trophies and also a game that I play, hate it being in list, but once have been told that I couldn't participate in the event because have hidden trophies and might be a cheater. 'Course understand them and situation, but it's too simple for people to say that.

So I used to hide a bunch of trophies because I can’t stand looking at such a mess and all the money I wasted on games I decided not to play 🤑. Then I read some similar thread about the possibility of those with hidden trophies not being on the leaderboards. Whereas I don’t give a rat’s a$$ about the leaderboard for myself or any other form of competition, I did unhide my trophies. I don’t look at my profile much anymore, so what I don’t see, can’t hurt me 😆!

 

This is the international leaderboard site, officially recognized even by Guinness World Records. It just makes sense that if we want to be included in the leaderboards that we don’t make it a 9-5 job for those who have to judge the matter. 

 

If you don’t care about anything, hide or unhide as you please and don’t worry about appearances. If you want to scale the leaderboards legitimately, then put all your cards on the table and get ready for scrutiny.

This sounds wise and interesting. Wouldn’t mind hearing it expanded on...?

I'm not sure if it qualifies as either but since you've asked...

 

i try to put myself in the shoes of someone clicking on a person's profile, seeing the "h", and then taking time out of their day to message that person to shame them...how would another gamer's hidden trophies negatively impact them to the point of wanting to insult the former and what would they even say?...some variation of "your profile isn't legit because you have hidden trophies"?..."f**k you, cheater"?...i have no idea...

 

there are plenty of things that make people angry that I can understand but imo it takes a very insecure person to feel hate over someone else having hidden trophies without even bothering to ask why...i would not want to go through life with that level.of ignorance and insecurity was all that I was implying...

There's no being shamed for a 'H', it's just information that literally says you have hidden trophies... which, if you have the icon, is true, you do.

 

What other people views they place on the 'H' is their business, who cares. The actual symbol is nothing but factual information about your profile. Just like if you have 10 trophies, your profile will say 10 trophies... The site itself is not shaming you for having 10 of them but I'm sure some asshats will shame people for 'only having 10', but again, that's their business, why would anyone flat out remove the trophy counters because some people shame people on their numbers. Hidden trophies are the same, it's just the factual information being shown.

H = badge of shame.  Show your real numbers and be proud of them!
