Why Overwatch deserves a 10/10 platinum difficulty

18 posts in this topic

This platinum pissed me off to a extent. I was so pissed off with Rapid Discord and Waste Not, Want Not I had to boost them. I really fell like ow is one of the hardest games on PS4 to get the platinum. Im not saying boosing making this harder, I had done 86% of the base game trophies. And most of that percentage pissed me off. Mei and Pharah are the exceptions. Blizzard will make this platinum harder doing legit. Armor Up is a trophy that pissed me off hard because I had to absorb 500 armor damage without dying. I hate the platinum, It pissed me the hell off. End of story.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(Note: 4/10 if you are gonna boost this game. This forum is about how I got pissed off over this platinum. from then on, I will boost an new ow characters)

You said it, if the boosting option is available then it wouldn't deserve a 10/10

I even think boosting got even easier because now there's the 2-2-2 quick play and the classic one . Most people play the classic which will make finding your friends a lot easier

 

But the bad thing is there will be 2 tanks but thankfully most of the trophies require only 4 kills which you can get by killing the healers

As it stands, you can't get trophies in quickplay classic as it's in the arcade mode. Blizzard have said they are looking into changing it so quick play classic will unlock them the same as quick play but haven't made any changes yet.

 

The majority of my trophies I got legit but there are a couple I boosted that just weren't happening otherwise like Rapid Discord & Cratered.

 

Some trophies have been reworked that make them much harder to get now, Huge Rez for Mercy is a prime example, Hanzo's Simple Geometry is another.

 

And then some have gotten easier like Winston' s Mine Sweeper, just wait for a Wrecking Ball to drop his ult & that's a guaranteed trophy, you used to have to pick him, hope there was a Symmetra on the other team (this was during her old kit so next to no-one ever played her) & then hope you could find her turrets before anyone else destroyed them or she switched out.

 

I'm currently struggling to get Sigma's Event Horizon (55 hours played as him & counting) as people keep taking kills from the triple that would get me my trophy, ie I get 3 or more in my ult with less than half health & before they slam into the ground a Widow or Solider will take the kills rather than fight the people still on the ground. I refuse to boost it though as he's actually one of my favourite characters to play as.

I never understand people that play games as amateurs and get pissed off at them. Stop doing it if it doesn't bring you pleasure man, it's not a job.

On a backup I got 60% of the trophies (around 2 years ago, now probably closer to 40-45% with new characters) without really trying in around 50 hours of game time, purely for fun. I can't comment on the Platinum as a whole, but there are definetly harder games out there. Just requires mastery of certain characters.

 

Also, at least Overwatch is actually completable on PS4. The Xbox version is impossible to max out, ever, unless you have played Overwatch continuously since launch. It's not patch-able either, as the Xbox version for some reason includes missable time-limited achievements based on the annual events that if you missed, are locked forever. How quality control allows achievements that can only be unlocked within 1 month, and then become permanently unobtainable, I'll never know (fortunately I don't have Overwatch on my main completionist profile so no problem for me). I'm really glad for PS4 users that they don't have to worry about these trophies.

If you are doing it legit, it is a 10/10.

I know that Winston trophy is easier, but Torbiorn's trophy armor up is now a pain in the ass doing legit

The only trophies I boosted were Doomfist, Baptise, and Sigma. I will say it is very difficult, but would not give it a 10/10. Most of the trophies are more luck-based than skill-based. There are some exceptions, but having 4 people get hit by an ultimate doesn't take much skill (all you need to do is aim it), but getting 4 people together that don't have any way to negate or hard counter your ultimate is pure luck.

I agree with the 10/10 difficulty as well. After about 500 hours, I just gave up on the platinum on the game as there was too much luck involved and it was becoming less fun due to the changes Blizzard kept making to please the e-sport crowd.

 

If this trophies were made in cumulative milestone fashion (kill x amount of enemies with x characters), that would have been ideal.

I just played Overwatch a few times, but yes I would agree 100% that "Most of the trophies are more luck-based than skill-based". The most difficult part is by far getting your opponents to "cooperate" and be in the right place at the right time and in the necessary numbers. Which is ridiculous.

Paladins at least only has one trophy that now is extremely difficult to get without boosting, as it requires the 9 other players to be dead at the same time, your 5 opponents and your 4 teammates.

 

It's annoying.

According to @NCSFan001, Overwatch is not the hardest platinum in the world by any memes. It's a multiplayer game. If you're not good at it, You would have a bad time for it. In my opinion, It's a 5/10 platinum (Not the hardest) with lots of time consuming.

It's a classic 8/10 for me. I haven't played it in months, but man I cannot tell you how skilled I became with Zenyatta, if only because I spent so much time going for his ungodly trophy. To me a 10/10 has to be punishing, almost to the point where it's not just difficult, but pseudo-torturous. (Of mine, I'd say Gran Turismo 5 and Wipeout HD hit that benchmark, almost done with Tetris Effect and that'll be another.) Overwatch has some toughies, for sure, but many are luck-based, and the game is so damn fun the whole time that I just threw my hands up and never really got stressed with it. You just keep playing and eventually it'll happen.

its not a 10/10, certain trophies could be considered 10/10 without boosting, like cratered and window of opportunity.

It's certainly higher than a 7. I've done all trophies withhout boost and found the platinum a real trip to hell (1000H+ With extreme rage to achieve this).

 

The hanzo's simple geometry trophy almost made me give up the platinum.

 

These are currentely the worst trophies in the game for me;

 

Huge Rez

Rapid Discord

Simple Geometry

Waste Not, Want Not

Anger Management

 

I envy everyone who played OW in 2016/2017, before the nerfs and reworks.

It's a tough platinum purely because most of the trophies are so situational. Rapid Discord you're most likely to get if the other team are all grouped up and you have a good DPS teammate doing some damage. I got mine on Volskaya and couldn't believe when it popped, as it was literally just me and another dude trying to win point A in a losing battle. We went ham, won the point and got me the trophy.

 

Literally with the vast majority of them, once you earn them the situation to do so wasn't that difficult but it just depends on what everyone else on the server is doing. I think this platinum generally has gotten worse with time as well... generally it's much easier to block a D.Va bomb with shields these days etc. That and the userbase is just more experienced than in Year 1 and so know how to avoid dying to a lot of the ultimates. So getting those 4k's is a challenge.

 

I can appreciate why this one is a pain for anybody only focused on the trophies. I just love me some Overwatch so I played for fun and was grinding heroes to get good at them. Once you've done so, you know what works best with them which makes the trophy list easier. The worst one I thought was the destroy 3 teleporters in a single game... which was when this was still Sym's ultimate! Ridiculous trophy as Sym often wouldn't even pick that ultimate on the rare occurancies she was actually in the game. 

 

I got them all without boosting and it really just came down to game sense and situational fortune. As somebody who mained Zen for a bunch of seasons, ironically I found 1500 Transcendence Healing pretty difficult to get. Mostly as my teammates healthpool was usually not too high (what with everyone playing DPS in earlier seasons). I found that one so much easier the minute tanks came back into fashion.

It's not that bad. Just a handful of trophies are hard to pull off legit. Some take a lot of time.

I disagree hugely even though I'm working on it still myself, most of the trophies are incredibly easy and outside a few which may need some skill/proper team comp. They aren't near impossible to do and some trophies are either forgiving or easy to pull off with friends without boosting. It's a team based shooter and some of these trophies are designed in that way that they require you need teammates help to complete them. Ones that are skilled based like Floor is Lava or Ashe's Dynamite Toss basically book down to playing the game enough to know how those characters work. 6/10 I would put it at personally because it requires knowledge of the game and it's characters and small to moderate skill of playing fps games. (I play this game regularly and while I'm mopping up trophies some now I always just naturally played for team comp over hunting.)

 

Btw too anyone struggling with some kill based trophies as long as the trophy doesn't say "killing blow" regular eliminations count towards those trophies as long as you receive credit for them. For example with Genji's reflect as long you dealt enough reflect damage to two enemies and a teammate got the finish on them you will get the trophy as with a double kill callout. This works for any trophies again without "killing blow" in their description.

Yeah it's definitely a 6/10. Knowledge of the game is a given for most trophy lists and this is no different. Got the platinum tonite myself after trying for specific trophies I needed left and this was with zero boosting. (I got Rapid Discord even within a few matches of playing Zenyatta.) Floor is Lava is definitely the most skilled based but part of its frustration I feel is the default controls definitely don't benefit Lucio's skillset.
