Accused Bid For Greatness Winner Denies Cheating

Junkie Monkeys: Recently we talked about Sony’s Bid For Greatness auction which seems to be starting off a bit rocky. The first winner has already been accused of hacking trophies and has recently denied claims of hacking. (PS3, PS4, Sony)

8,500 that's impossible.Most i've ever gotten in one day was around 107 trophies.

@Majie tweet that to Sony.

8500! There's no way that can be right! (too bad it wasn't 9000) or this would have been hilarious lol.

9001 trophies would have been true hilarity.

I've seen that Vegeta skit way too many times. They even made a techno song about it.
Dark_Overlord  +   596d ago
I don't see how anyone could see him as a cheater, I mean getting Fallout 3 plat in 9 minutes and Red Dead Redemption in 0 secs seems legit to me /s

XD but seriously, he's even trying to defend himself, must be delusional XD

I really want those Killzone outfit :[
WillGuitarGuy  +   596d ago
I want my hands on the sniper outfit. It looks so badass.
SuperSandLegend  +   596d ago
What do you mean Virginia?!

Really though a lot of people spent a fck ton of hours to get those trophies and he goes on and tries to screw up an opportunity for them.

Apparently this guy got every trophy in Guitar Hero 5 within seconds of one another. I don't know how you can deny cheating after this information is visible:

just look at his trophy unlocks for 3d dot game heroes... all, except for maybe one or two were unlock at the exact same time signature.

he apparently got all of demon's souls' trophies at the exact same time he got all of the 3d dot game heroes trophies, too...

*totally* legit... /sarcasm

one trophy every 10.104 seconds to be legit max you can unlock at once is about 5 end game + difficultyx4+plat

I don't know why everyone is mad at this guy, he won! by cheating, but he won. Is SONY fault, they are who are doing this the way they are doing it is so stupid.

"Don't hate the player hate the game people"

Last time i check Maradona use his hand to made a gol, he did not got cough at that moment so he won! corporations cheat in many ways, throw toxics to the rivers and we end up taking shower or drinking that water with those toxines flouride and shit. They sale 1 million pills "drugs" and they know 10 will died but they made so much profit from 1millions sold drugs that they don't care if the few die, they pay their fees and move on and keep cheating.

My point is many cheat some get cough and some don't, don't hate the player but the game and this game is made by Sony.

You apply the line so terribly. It is in the agreements of the contest. You can't cheat. He was disqualified from the game. People that do that crap can be rid of. Why are you pretending that people can do nothing about it when it applies to other situations that people try and do stupid unethical things?
ssj27  +   596d ago
What if any other winer cheated and did not got noticed?
Maybe someone had upload trophies in a smart way before and now he has the power to win and go undetected.

It's very possible, not every cheater ins stupid like this kid.
DragonKnight  +   596d ago
In before Hakoom tries to say he's not a cheater too.
Majors  +   596d ago
Im sure Hakoom is a collection of players using one account. They play offline and then sync trophies every couple of days
DragonKnight  +   596d ago
Not according to Hakoom.
Dark_Overlord  +   595d ago
Its definitely more than 1 player on that account, forgot which 2 games it was (I was browsing his trophies) but he apparently kept alternating games every few mins to unlock a trophy on the other and vice versa.

Why won't he just admit it like Roughdawg and the other groups did? There is no way 1 person earning trophies can beat 4/5 people earning trophies.
Flipflopp  +   595d ago
Wow. Did the math. That equals out to be,

354 trophies per hour

and almost 6 trophies per minute in a 24hr period.

What a loser.
majiebeast  +   596d ago
Love how he tries to defend himself when there is even a video on youtube of him hacking his trophies.

Love this guy
Sephiroushin  +   596d ago
I knew this was going to happen!
It's also the reason of why Sony do not do stuff with the trophies; it's like giving cheaters stuff when there are real people that work very hard on games to get trophies legit way ...

The guy is an idiot, there is no way you could get 8,500 trophies in one day, not even by getting the easiest trophies ever!

This is why we can't have nice things.
ziggurcat  +   596d ago
it's too bad that the thread is locked because i would totally post that youtube video of him hacking WaW, and ask him to explain how he wasn't a hacker.
MasterofMagnetism  +   596d ago
Majiebeast already posted it above.
ziggurcat  +   596d ago
no, i mean on the actual forum thread where he was defending himself as being legit despite it being blindingly obvious he wasn't.
MasterofMagnetism  +   596d ago
You mean the one from psnprofiles? I had a good laugh reading his comments from that thread. Like anyone is going believe his lies. Instead of sending him the Killzone outfit, Sony should send him two shirts. One that says CHEATER and another that says BANNED. Just imagine the look the on his face when he opens the box and sees those shirts. LOL

ziggurcat  +   596d ago
yeah, that thread.

truth be told, i kind of want to add him to my friends list just so that i can give him a piece of my mind.

and sony should send him a lump of coal along with those t-shirts.

Whyiwasbanned.com is full of people trying to defend themselves like this guy. It's funny how many people lend their accounts to people while they are on 3 month vacations to go to their dead aunt's funeral
mushroomwig  +   596d ago
*sigh* This is why we can't have nice things. I had a feeling something like this would happen, given the chance some people will cheat their way to an advantage.
Bowzabub  +   596d ago
lucidity  +   596d ago
I'm surprised Sony hadn't prepared for this eventuality. It's a shame as well, because this was actually a cool idea.
xXKingofStingXx  +   596d ago
I actually signed up for this and soon after realized this exact thing would happen. People would show up and bid with ridiculous amounts of trophies and edge out those who actually earned theirs...I hope this jacka$$ gets banned for being so damn stupid...
jerethdagryphon  +   596d ago
i have 57 platiniums and 200 golds....

thats over ps3 life the time stamps on his profile prove it i hope he doesnt get the stuff
GenericNameHere  +   596d ago
Only way I'd believe this guy is if he clones himself (that's not cheating, is it? It's basically yourself still), has a PS3 for each of those 99 other clones, buys every single game on the planet and plays those, online boosts online with those clones, plays the same game but different regions with different stacks of trophy lists, each of those clones are ambidextrous and are able to play two games at once meaning 200 PS3s, one fore each hand, AND they live in a place where you have different robots of different tasks. One feeds you, one cleans your buttocks after pooping, one changes your clothes, one gives you a bath while playing with a moist towel, one makes love to you, one dispenses an infinite amount of money to spend, and another to go out and buy all those things.

I can believe earnings plats seconds after another, because you just need to have multiple PS3s and synch them at the same time, but this guy already has a Youtube channel where he clearly shows himself hacking trophies. BOOO!! This guy hacks his trophies? I don't care. But this guy hacks his trophies, tries to enter a contest for trophy hunters, then tries to defend himself when he is found guilty, and robbing honest trophy hunters a chance to get something for their hard work? BOOOOOOOOOO!!! Shame on this hacker!
famoussasjohn  +   596d ago
Ya the part of him doing this to win a competition is a dick move. They should send him just the outer shell of the PS4 and send the real winner the real deal. Then ban his PS3 from being used online again.
devwan  +   596d ago
It'd be nice if Sony trawled through everyone's trophies looking for suspicious activity and also checked for impossible amounts of trophies when syncing in future, just to keep it fair and healthy.
Skate-AK  +   596d ago
This guy is trolling so hard. Go to Psnprofiles and look at the first trophy he ever earned. His first trophy is the Black Ops plat and it says he got it in 1993.....
RioKing  +   596d ago
Sony's confirmed that they're not sending him anything
ZBlacktt  +   596d ago
All they had to do was run his time stamps.
ziggurcat  +   596d ago

and i bet he's probably going to continue to try and argue that he did it all legit.

All cheaters and hackers lie when caught. No matter how bad it looks....
Dagobert  +   596d ago
Technically Hakoom should have one since he has the most trophies without cheating.
Dagobert  +   596d ago
Oh shit I just realized I spelled won as one. Egg on my face.
ZBlacktt  +   596d ago
I know you are SO not srs...... he's just another one of the hackers. Very well known about.
Dagobert  +   596d ago
I've never seen him get 8,000 trophies in a day so no, I doubt he's a hacker.
ZBlacktt  +   595d ago
Learn to check accounts. But then again based on what you've posted. Lets just forget about. Not sure it's possible.
