idk how it was at launch, i played it later and the game has an offline mode, the square servers are not required

 

Yeah, and it doesn't reset stats. Because there are no stats to look at. Literally. LOL.

Great guide for anybody thinking about starting the game still, but about this:

1 Scrap crew takes a little over 8 days to get 2000, 2 scrap crews take a little over 4 days, 3 scrap crews take a little under 3 days, and 4 scrap crews take a hair over 2 days.

 

What maths did you use here? I was under the impression you got 1 scrap from each crew every 10 minutes (6 scrap/crew/hour). I checked this myself once and got 9 scrap after ~90 minutes. This would put it at around 3.5 days for 4 crews to get 2000 scrap.

Stupid developers. Why make online trophies in a single game?😡

do you mean for the trophies or just playing the game? because you can play all those games offline 100% except for the 2-3 social trophy related gimmicks that are irrelevant to the actual game outside of the trophies they give

 

call-out. beat another challenge. beat another call-out challenge. very easy

starting tomorrow will be cutting the deadline for the online feat if want it in time for mad max.

 

keeping system off until the crews get the required scrap etc.

You are correct, I got some bad information. It is 144 per 24 hours per scrap crew, I just tested it. Which means if you start it today, 2 scrap crew aren't going to be enough. You need to get at least 3 scrap crews running by end of day to have a chance of making it.

This is one of the weirder platinum runs I've done. Glitching-watching + racing against the clock because of server shutdown lol

Is possible to finish these challenges in 4 days?

In theory you might just scrape by but personally, I wouldn't even remotely consider attempting these challenges at this point if you haven't already got at least the first one done. There is a possibility of a 2 day extension to the shutdown date but it all depends on if WB decides to have someone come into work this Saturday to turn the servers off as planned or if they decide to wait until Monday and then shut them down, because it's very unusual for the server closures to be carried out on a weekend.

Looks like you started it up so follow the guides in this thread, like getting through Act II ASAP and getting all the crap crews up.
Good luck! Please update your progress.

Thank you to everyone that replied. It was a mission get this challenge. I watched multiple videos, read multiple guide, followed all the suggestions, and I still could not get it right. After 3 hours of trying, I eventually said, screw it, I'm going to carry on with the game and do something. The challenge eventually popped up randomly on it's own at some point, and I can't even remember what I was doing to get it.

 

Now I'm focusing on the car challenges, and those are starting to become tedious and I'm having to look up videos on each of them that aren't clear enough. At least I don't have many left to go.

 

Looked Everywhere and Up To The Task must be the two most stupid trophies I have ever come across in a video game. Both are some of the most tedious collectothons ever and pad out the game for no reason. If the game did not have these two trophies, the game would be a quite an enjoyable Plat.

Scroll up a bit for my long post, If you want to get this done, you are going to have to power through Act 1 and Act 2 in one sitting to get all 4 scrap crews running today.  After completing the scrap crew for the stronghold you are in, focus on the green story missions to keep the story moving.

I just got Dividend and uploaded my save just in case something goes wrong or I get a plat-stopping glitch.  Just to make sure, there isn't anything else I need to do before the servers shutdown, right?

I contemplated starting the plat so many times and only just now saw this thread about server shutting down for a game I thought to be completely solo-offline. Unfortunately my internet s*** so it will take a while just to install the game but I feel like trying anyway even though I have read that post about needing to have all 4 crews running by the end of today.

 

I have not seen how that mechanic works in-game and I was wondering, wouldnt it be possible to have them look for scrap before the servers shut-down and then launch the game days later to possibly have them to have gotten scraps for the entire period your game was closed?

There's a chance that wont work if you have to connect to their server to collect the scrap.  The accumulation would either be held server side, or run a time check against the server clock.

 

You still have enough time to pull it off, but the clock is ticking.

I am almost certain that platinum will still be available after October 31st, I think the internet connection is sufficient to check the time. We will see ...., I do not want to give false hope to anyone

This^

 

It's all server side so once the servers close, the Scrap Crews will go offline and the relevant challenges will become uncompletable :(. A friend of mind did some tests and without a connection to the Mad Max servers, the whole Scrap Crew system shuts down and ceases to work.

Got the online challenges done. I'm just going to hope that by some miracle I don't run into any glitches, since I haven't even finished Act 2.

I've just finish act two and while I'm making good progress, I don't know if  I got all 4 scrap crew. Thou I must say the game is really glitchy than anticipated. Frame rate drop, enemy cars disappear and sand storm don't appear when they should. At this point I wouldn't be surprise if the trophy glitched on me.

Fellas, 

 

I have a weird situation... I hop in Settings > Legen and check out carefully the titles and desriptions on absolutely all challenges. Thers is ''A Penny Saved - Earn 500 scrap from Scrap Crews'' (which I already completed), but there is NO/ NOTHING /NIENTE /ZERO/ NADA  so called ''Dividend - Earn 2000 scrap from Scrap Crews'' in the whole list. No line, no description, just absolutely nothing...

What am I missing? 🤓

The Dividend challenge apparently.

 

Are you sure you checked all challenges? It should be in the wasteland category. You might have just missed it.

Pls tell not now that the Bigmouth challenge is missable?

I've got 11/12 

And there's no last one on her territory.

I've read it becomes missable, if the danger level gets to low. I'm on 3 right now. But I as well found someone writing it came at the end of all encounters.

Nothing is missable in this game but several challenges become massively more annoying/difficult to get during the post-story portion.
