Steve Wright of Stevivor explains why a single Achievement or Trophy in Injustice 2 is proving nearly impossible for fans to earn.
That's frustrating. There wasn't a ghost of a chance I'd plat this game, but I like to have the option available to me. Hopefully NR will address this, but I won't hold my breath.
I'm two trophies away and it's this trophy and win a king of the hill match with Harley by using a certain move "double trouble"at the end. Iv'e put so much time into this game i'm literally level 109 overall
One of the most frustrating things to me is near-impossible / unfair trophies. I don't want to be dramatic, but it ruins some of the fun of the game for me if I know it's virtually impossible to plat it.
Dude, not far off ya platinum, just hold ur trait button all the way when they got less than 5% health left. I've played sum serious hours but how the hell did you get to that level?
I gave up on getting DOA5 plats for various versions because of the survival mode. Even after spending a ridiculous amount of time in online matches and not even getting those trophies, sometimes while boosting, the survival mode was just a pain. I think I gave up when I got to round 79 and lost. That was when I gave up on the games, and just boot it up to play once in a while when I feel like it.
so how I got to that level.
I actually somehow after I got to about level 86 seemed something glitched and anytime i meter burned a move I got ten thousand xp and gold for one move and so i was racking up about 80,000 a match or up to 210,000 so I even asked Netherrealm if this should be happening and if they could help fix it which they did but they said they would have to reset my level for it to be fair except that since I contacted them and even told my guild what was happening as soon as I noticed they let me be. I have two PS4's do you think I could do the king of the hill and invite myself under another account like my wifes and get the trophy? Also i'm on PSN if you wanna add me i'm timjohnrob.
This is why I don't sweat trophies. They'd be fun little diversions if some of them weren't so damn ridiculous to get.
but it gives you a reason to continue playing and put more effort into this challenge of getting it and that awesome feeling of finally getting it lol.
A game being engaging in a skill based gameplay sort of way is reason enough to keep playing. A trophy like this has nothing really to do with skill and its completely outside of the natural gameplay lane, skill based or otherwise, for anyone who doesn't main as Catwoman. Its a bad trophy requirement, plain and simple.
for about one hot minute andbthen the realization kicks in how many hours you just spent accomplishing nothing of substance *lol*
@chris235 thats like saying playing a game for hours is a waste of time cause when you finish it thats it... lol games involved challenges, obstacles, effort regardless if it involves a trophy or not and if everyone thought like that people would give up gaming just cause they might be stuck in a certain area of a game and decide not to continue cause they can't get through one obstacle in a game cause spending your time trying to figure it out or get through it is a waste of time to be doing that for hours just to in your words "accomplishing nothing of a substance"
well i mean i didn't mean skill so far as to specifically that but still takes effort to get it done i'm just saying it gives you more things to do to occupy you more on the game with more goals.
I stopped caring after getting the platform for demon souls and infamous 1 ,anybody who has chased the platinum for those games know how stupid and time wasting it is to get it because of the pure bladestone drop in demon souls and collecting all the light shards in infamous 1.they put off me chasing any kind of achievements for good
Neither of those is that bad farm the black nights for pure bladestone and use a map for infamous
a trophy should NEVER be based on rng for a paid dlc character, that's bs
Thats the worst offense here.
When they become work, and not fun, I think it ruins the game. The feeling of accomplishment isn't worth the time if one is not having fun doing it. I don't buy games to feel like I'm working, but to have fun. If I'm having fun, then I'll play for a long time trying to get some random hard trophy, and actually do like the feeling of accomplishment if I get it.
Got my platinum last week or so. Toughie for me was voting correctly in KOH, took me bloody ages. Is this really a problem? Wow!!! Would like to have seen a combo related trophy set. I suggest like will all fighting games put in the practice.
Tip for getting this achievement : Save all ya money and don't buy any boxes. Use ya money for events in the muiltiverse that unlock a random ability and/or high level boxes. I got most my cool stuff from silver GUILD muiltiverse boxes.
Guys, just play the game and don't even worry about the trophies. What has a gamer done with a platinum trophy on a PlayStation game? Nothing...
That's a dismissive blanket statement as it doesn't address the issue of what were they thinking.
The RNG in this game CAN be atrocious. That's an issue that affects non trophy hunters too, as the trophy in question is an ability/move. I've unlocked every Catwoman ability (including ones I didn't want) except cat call, the one in question. What are the odds lol?
Pop open a dozen diamond boxes getting squat for your mains, and then you'll feel our timesink pains ;p
You're right. Preferably I don't like RNG in any game unless it's a freemium game.
Sto lock boxes are like this hundreds of quid for a .04 chance of a ship
I don't give a shit about the achievements or trophies
I'm just enjoying the game
I do love the multiverse and loot boxes
Took me about a week and opening roughly 9000 Gold mother boxes to land Cat Call. But the game is so fun I didn't care. Still play it and eagerly anticipating Sub Zero next week.
I've opened up over 30-60 million in boxes and still havent got it and prob opened triple the amount of regular boxes
I can't speak for trophies in other fighting games, but I do know that earning trophies in any NetherRealm fighting title is an utter pain in the arse. I looked at the trophy list for MKX which I played rigorously for a time, and it just wasn't worth the extreme hassle. There's a point where completionists such as myself, have to draw the line on whether or not we enjoy the game whilst working for trophies or whether we want to break our backs doing what feels like uninspired filler chores.
Some developers are able to expertly weave trophies into the entire experience of their game to create a cohesive and enjoyable trophy hunt experience. Some developers just make it feel like completely dreadful nonsense.
This is an issue, not only with this game but others. MP achievements are the most annoying as they require a community and if the game is dead you're out of luck. Luck achievements, that's just hell.
I got the singularoty plat the online had maybe 8 people in total who actually cared about it
It's an achievement, get over it. Why would you want to attain something that is readily accesible? Keep going until you get it or stfu.
Patching the game so that it increases the grind & makes trophies more difficult is a bit of a d**k move.
don't buy a fighting game with character dlc, problem solved.
everything should be $60, not $90 or $100 or whatever it is. Then maybe these drops won't be rare.
Its as bad as eso the emperor one . points dont reset. After you gain it and its not given to you or the best player just the one with most points things like that are stupid
I love it when someone bitch about achievements
In my day, we played fighting games for bragging rights, not trophies.
This is beyond cheap, and what I knew would happen with these stupid F&@$&@& boxes! I won't buy any game that has them. And I left ESO when they introduced them.
If they want us to play everyday, create a system that rewards us, a goal that can be seen and worked towards, not random bullshit!
