Ace of Sardine

Such a weird and wonderful little gem but OMG Ace of Sardine is such bullshit.  Tried it for a few hours, most attempts only last a few moments before either your whole crew is knocked out and/or you're simply dead.  Even on better attempts I've only managed to take out a few health bars.  Anyone got any legit tips, watched a handful of videos already but nothing's working out.

I tried this years ago for a few hours & never got the easy pattern I saw in a video. Only managed to take a few lifebars away as well. In the end I just put the game aside & didn't even bother fighting the boss with a regular fleet, should really go back & at least do that.

 

I wonder if this trophy can be cheesed online by having one person with a sardine fleet & the other with a normal fleet. Thinking about that scenario I'd wonder if the kill shot would have to be from the sardine fleet though. Had the same sort of thought with two Sardine Fleets although I bet that'd still be a bit of a struggle.

 

It's a shame the super synthesis fish is such a bastard. Even the Giant Squid fight felt chilled out by comparison. Really enjoyed my time with the game regardless.

You are meant to be 4 people for the boss I think, I never actually managed to find someone to try the online with but most people on PC said it was super easy in a group.

 

I tried a few times solo, was close once but yeah feels to be online "Raid" material so I left it as is.

It's a cool game though, have some quirky moments.

You can do 4 people?  I know you can do two at least.  Might be best to tackle it as a group then.  You down?

I would be down to try as a group if you are

 

I had a look at the ps store description & it would seem you can indeed do 4 player. I had no idea & assumed it was 2P but yeah that would definitely make things a lot more manageable. I played this online with randoms a couple of times & we were definitely overpowered. 

 

The roadblock here is Rustic would have to forgive me for being a bit short with him here a year or two ago when I was drunk af. I have nothing against him & apologised at the time IIRC so yeah I'm totally happy to have a session. Not really up to me though. It seems like you've already forgiven me for being a dick about Psyvariar which is appreciated. I swear I was coming back to post that video ages ago. The common thread here is a serious drinking habit I had developed, it wasn't a binge it was a slow consistent crawl & it's caught up to me at only 37, doctor said my liver and pancreas were lacking so I haven't had a beer for a couple of months now & am maybe 30% less caustic.

 

That was as cringe to type as it would have been to read I promise.

 

Far as gaming goes I've got 2% remaining items for Katamari & should be done soon. After that I'm up for playing anything & have no essential/hype titles coming until early next year when that Aleste Collection comes out. Anyway I'll get to rolling & check back in a few days & we'll see if we can organise some deep sea action for the future.

First step towards betterment is accepting you're shortcomings, glad to here you're taking steps towards bettering yourself and no hard feelings from me.

 

Not a ton of info out there but what I could find does say everyone in the group has to be sardines (so no cheesing it) so it'd likely still take a few hours of attempts but chances would definitely be higher as a group at least.

I have the good news that it indeed can be "cheesed" ?

 

We challenged the Synthesis with my squad of 6 Sardines, and his squad (of Great Whites, Leopard Seal, Blue Tuna & Barracuda).  The first trophy — for beating Synthesis — popped for us both at the same moment.  The "Ace of Sardines" trophy popped for me right after!  (I was the host)

 

The second time my hb hosted the game and we challenged Synthesis with his squad of 6 Sardines and my squad (Barracuda, Great White, Blue Tuna, Leopard Seal, Giant Squid).  He also got the trophy "Ace of Sardines" then!  

 

Note:  "Ace of Sardines", "Invaders", & "Big Eye in the deep" only popped for the host.  So, the one attempting this trophies should make sure to be the host.

This is my information as of 02.01.2022.
