The "rooms" are gone. Ranked, player, and private matches still work

If you have 2 copies of the game and 2 PS3s, is there a way to solo boost it or is it not that easy?

When it comes to King of the Hill, the more players are there, the faster you'll be done, as you can give yourselfes more respect points.

As for ranked matches, if both the consoles are connected via Ethernet cable, you'll find your dummy account almost instantly.

If anyone wants to speed up KOTH respect points trophies just use a free PS4 PS Now trial on a dummy account of the same region you are in.

 

It helps if both you and your boosting partner do this to speed up the respect point gain.

So since I have two ps3s, would I be able to get the trial for ps now on my account (I don't have the game yet) and on a dummy account and boost like that? I'm not sure if ps now still works with ps3.

Might be a case of the Arkham Origins situation, where the developer says its shut down but it actually is still online? I guess lobbies are all but gone, but seems to me, at least for the time being, the game is still alive. I would act fast though. Im too tired to start right now but im playing as soon as I can get a 2nd copy of KE.

I am sorry I meant rooms. Yes, rooms are gone but you can still invite friends.

If you have a 2nd account and a 2nd PS3, you can currently buy Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition on PSN. That's I did to boost the ranked trophies.

 

Also, do it REALLY early in the morning your time.

Got to love server shutdown announcements or rumors suddenly sparking a big playerbase to just go and get the online ASAP.

Well no shit, people want their games done, why wouldn't they? Seems like a stupid thing to say.

I honestly wish it was like that all the time for people. For me for several years, I worked on all the online related trophies I could think of on PS3. I still need to do a few more on PS3 like Syndicate and *gasp* Chronicles of Riddick (maybe on that one).

Granted I just did this crap with Driveclub.

 

But.... it generally takes a server shutdown announcement to suddenly get a bunch of people who would otherwise not touch games like this to play the multiplayer. I honestly don't feel sorry for people who wait until the last minute and then realize it's too late. I can't feel sympathy for them.

I'm actually pretty aware of your trophy hunting habits since KingSuperOne reviewed you a couple years back.

 

I have a few unobtainables (GTA V PS3, Uncharted 2 & 3 PS3) but at the end of the day I'm not going to stick my head out for games that I have no interest in actually playing.

 

A while back I was thinking of getting a PS3 off of eBay or somewhere for very cheap and then self boost Mortal Kombat 2011 on a public multiplayer setting. I guess I can't do that anymore, but the My Kung Fu Is Stronger grind brushed me away from this game anyway.

 Well, it's not our fault that WB Games decides that making an announcement of server shutdown is too much of a hassle. I had this game on my mind for some time, but was focused on other games, because of false sense that if they're gonna shut this down, they're gonna tell us.

You can't always trust a big company like WB Games.

 

At least the online trophies are still obtainable. I think the real issue here is them not giving a crap about this game because it's now considered old.

You don't need 2 ps3s to self boost it, if you have a ps4 or pc, you can use a PS Now trial and self-boost it, it's what I did

Load playstation now on ps4 or pc, start free trial, load up mortal kombat 9, search for yourself with your ps3 in ranked, do all ranked trophies, invite yourself to private match, do all king of the hill trophies

Nice, thanks. But it has to be the same account, because, the one i'm trying the trophies doesn't have access to psnow, can i use other account to boost my main one?

Doesn't matter which one can access ps now, you just need it running to be able to play against yourself

 

edit: note that mortal kombat 9 online is region locked, so you need to be playing the same region version on both systems

Im not in the US, but in Europe with a US copy of the game....

I tried several times, but servers seem offline.

 

Can anyone confirm or check if servers are offline or online in general?

 

Thanks guys.

It seems like they're still fine.

On a other note. Yesterday, Mortal kombat got delisted in the EU. 

 

As it requires some human input, I'm guessing that they are slowly 'deleting' the game. Pretty scary in the sense of how long the servers will be up.

this might be kind of a stupid question, but if the servers do get shutdown will the offline remain unaffected? Will I still be able to get the platinum if I already have all the online trophies?
