Level 50 huh.... Something smells fishy. I play a lot of games. I avg 20-30 hrs per week since the PS3 first came out, and I'm nowhere level 50, but around lvl 13. If I had to guess about Hakoom reaching level 50 I think he did it using other peoples save games, and loading the game under his profile. I could be all wrong and he did honestly. We'll just never know.

Multiple people playing on one account is more logical.

That's true. To me cheat isn't the first thing that comes to mind. The first thing is how is he affording this.
ABizzel1  +   1096d ago
Like you to said, it's more logical that more than one person is playing on that PS3.

@PantherDST

I've had my PS3 since launch and I play maybe 5 - 10 hours per week, and I'm at level 18. It's all a matter of how many different games you play. I've played probably 100 games and just beating them nets you nearly 50% of the trophies in each game. If you play only a few games over and over again then your trophy score won't go up as fast as someone like myself who plays about 20 games per year.

Also PSN titles generally have trophies as well, and some games make trophy hunting easy (sports), while others take for (RPG's). It all just depends.

One things for sure they have no life outside of video games to make it to level 50.

He could be independently wealthy and play 10 hours or more a day. I was happy to see I had him beat at Pixeljunk Shooter, at least!
DaTruth  +   1096d ago
I didn't sync my trophies before my 60gig died! When I reloaded my save for FF13, I lost a few trophies and had to replay the whole game to get them again, as there was no way to redo those specific actions and I was only able to salvage my most recent save!

Maybe that works for some trophies, but not for all!

Edit: I'm not really into trophies, but on some RPG's it feels like another quest and is really enjoyable.(the only part of FF13 that feels like an RPG is the trophy hunt) Also, Uncharted had a bunch of unlockables that made me want to 100% it, and though I did this before trophies, it just seemed stupid to have all the requirements for the trophies, but not have the trophies; so I redid it!

Now that is a LOT of gaming!

I am not even sure what level I am at. I don't play a wide variety of games and I tend to spend hundreds or hours on certain types of games so I don't have a lot of trophies or achievements. I think I am like a level 13 or 14 on PSN and have 47k on XBL but I'm guessing.

If this is what this gamer is into than all the kudos in the world to him. That is quite an accomplishment for a trophy hunter.

Does the PS3 top off at level 50?
If so that would suck for a guy like this.
It's like hitting the highest level prestige in COD, not that I ever would or did. But where do you go from here for guys like this?

Until Hakoom was truly revealed, I honestly thought it was the official PS Blog account that everyone uses. This is some serious dedication. I don't know how anyone is that good to beat all this so fast. I mean there are multiple plats for games that take 100s of hours to complete. I can't even speculate on how this is theorectically or scientifically possible.

Hakoom's Bronze Trophies are OVER 9000!!!!!!!!

What does this 'max level 50' thing mean though? (the page isn't loading for me, so not sure if its in there)...

Does it mean as of right now you can't get above a level 50?...I'm asking because just based on screens i've seen of this guy the last few weeks; he hasn't platinum'd every game he played...so there are additional trophies available to him...and I wonder what the total number of available trophies is right now..meaning there has to be a fixed number, but it increases with every new release each week...

bman33  +   1096d ago
Yeah, all the top trophy hunters just have multiple users playing on the account and Hakoom is no different. Now that he has 250 platinums it will be hard to see it, but if you searched thoroughly through his trophies, you would find that there are multiple games that he earned trophies for at the same time and date.
guitarded77  +   1096d ago
@Kleptic
The max trophy level is currently 50. I assume the algorithm written for trophy score caps at that point because they didn't expect people to achieve to that level this gen. It should be a very easy fix if Sony decides to raise the cap.
theEx1Le  +   1097d ago
I know people who play less and have way more trophies than you. Just because you can't do it doesn't mean someone who has, cheated to do so. Thats an unfair assumption.

I agree. First off your trophy level increases ALOT when you plat a game and I read the article and he has 285 platinums I mean if thats not going to get you to level 50 I dont know what is.

Also about hacking and savefiles it would show if he was hacking with the trophy unlock times and it doesnt.
SuperStrokey1123  +   1096d ago
I was going to say the same thing, amount of time playing does not equate to amount of trophies either. IF you play games just to play them instead of whoring through trophies your time could be really high and your trophies low.

Go check youtube if you think he cheats, he got Ninja Sigma 2 plat on film (hardest plats ever) for his 200. This guy does nothing but get trophies. Just because someone has a lot of trophies does not mean he cheated.

Oh FYI hes not from Kuwait he's from Bahrain.

I agree that it seems odd but a guy has like 25,000 achievements on xbox without cheating so it is plausible. I would never play games like Ben 10 just for trophies though and how the hell does he get all the trophies for games like guitar hero with expert on every instrument. Trophies to me just add challenges that I can try to do after I've beaten a game already but I guess for some it makes them play garbage games just to get a higher level that doesn't mean anything.

There is a cap on the level?

edit: @Trophywhore

Such an awesome answer from such an awesome username!

That was my point, why is there a cap? The cap should be determined by the number of trophies in games available.

My guess, is that points to reach a level are manually determined, and Sony haven't figured out what those levels are yet.

Redempteur  +   1096d ago
there are always CAPS, even your watch has caps.

Overflows in electronics are happening because you go over the caps while calculating numbers...
This is a standard thing on every device. It can be patched to allow for more afterwards but there is nothing wrong with LV 50 when you considers the time needed to get to it.
gamingdroid  +   1096d ago
Well, the cap on a overflow of 32-bit integer is 4,294,967,295. That is 4 billion plus!

None the less it is hardly the same as a level 50 cap that is hard to believe it is a technical issue.

If there is a technical reason, the only one I can think of is the database column isn't wide enough to accommodate a higher Trophies point which could be a pain to resize due to testing.

However, it is still odd to me not to have a higher level possible from the onset. Then again there are all sorts of questions and issues that arises, since trophy level isn't linearly scaled. The vast majority will not reach the max, and as you go higher up it gets harder to level up and thereby reduce the incentive to the masses, but the most dedicated.

i agree gamindroid.

But you don't know for sure how the level of the trophies are calculated .Also yes the database collumn isn't wide enough but when creating ( or expanding a database ) you don't put a HUGE margin , you try to guess a reasonnable width.

Nobody will create a table for billions of users with huge margin , it's a pain to manage. AND it cost a LOT
gamingdroid  +   1095d ago
The cost of having a larger column is dirt cheap and the cost of increasing the column is rather expensive considering the work required and the risk involved so I doubt it is the issue.

If it is, then that is a bonehead decision!

As I said, most likely the issue is the points required for each level isn't on a linear scale. This causes problems like:

a) How do you determine the point score for next level?

b) What about the vast majority of users that never reach that level? It would seem like they never increased their level.

The level system in this case might be flawed....
Redempteur  +   1095d ago
Well the trophies aren't lost .. Just that the calculated amount of each trophies reached the maximum level available.

a) by following the same increase in requirements as the previous level.

b) This isn't an issue since like 3 or 5 people reached this status ..sony won't update it anytime soon. and like many people here said , the average of a regular player ( not trophy whore) is near (10 - 20) ..this isn't even near an issue.

"The cost of having a larger column is dirt cheap"
No. not when you're managing so many people, each space count and that why you don't allow wide margin from the start it's easier ( FOR EVERYONE ) to limit at first and expand it later.
"the cost of increasing the column is rather expensive considering the work required and the risk involved "

They just need to prepare more space by linking more servers to their already available set.i dunno what risk you're talking about when every serious company has saves in case somthing happens and resizing tables are hardly something that can generate lot of errors.

You are contradicting yourself:

***No. not when you're managing so many people, each space count and that why you don't allow wide margin from the start it's easier ( FOR EVERYONE ) to limit at first and expand it later.***

***They just need to prepare more space by linking more servers to their already available set.***

If you are just adding a few servers, then that is hardly "each space counts". You can store many billions of records on 100GB hard drive and we got Terabyte drives!

1GB can store 268,435,456 32-bit integers. Adding extra storage is a few hundred bucks, maybe a few thousand if you are using overpriced enterprise stuff.

***i dunno what risk you're talking about when every serious company has saves in case somthing happens and resizing tables are hardly something that can generate lot of errors. ***

Any DBA worth his salt will tell you that modifying an existing database is a risk, because you are modifying an existing system that is very large. It is always easier to add tables with database server than modifying it. Some of the problems are hard to detect, for instance you align the data on the hard drive for performance reasons, and when you change the column size this alignment is affected. You can perform stress test, but it is never going to replicate a live environment.

Other issues that might show up, is now the database might grow larger than the size of the drive and have to be further split up. Keep in mind these are now multiple colums we are talking about.

There are all sorts of things that goes on in a large system, that smaller systems don't have to worry about.

Backups are nice and dandy, but service uninterruption isn't guaranteed with changes.

So it isn't error prone issue (although this is a smaller factor), it is stability issues in a large system.

***This isn't an issue since like 3 or 5 people reached this status ..sony won't update it anytime soon. and like many people here said , the average of a regular player ( not trophy whore) is near (10 - 20) ..this isn't even near an issue.***

True, but as I said, clearly Sony didn't anticipate possibility of exceeding this cap at 50 level. They really should have had a dynamic system that can scale with the number of games they are adding. That shouldn't be hard to figure out, but the user perception issue is altogether entirely different.

you're thinking like someone who never had to touch or manage a proper netserver..thos thing cost thousand of dollar piece ( i am talking about proper server , not a harddrive you buy at a nearby shop ) because those are made with much more care than anything you can find on the regular market.

"Other issues that might show up, is now the database might grow larger than the size of the drive"

Those things areNOT stored on a support with a limit because you can add more to the set

"Backups are nice and dandy, but service uninterruption isn't guaranteed with changes. "

That's why they have to do their changes during maintenances ..and if you've paid attention the pSN goes on maintenance at regular dates ? why do you think ... because they are making backup and necessary changes to their software and hardware .. Those interruption of services are happening several times per year already.

"Sony didn't anticipate possibility of exceeding this cap at 50 level."

Of course they did. if they hadn't the software or psn wouldn't have been able to work past the limit they SET.. When you program like that , you have to set yourself limits. Every devices has limits. What they didn't see is this group of people earning a lot of them quite fast .. BUT THEN AGAIN , they still can earn them and once they patch the limit the total count should be restored ..

you're thinking like someone who hasn't managed large chuck of data on a server based environement.you can't just SET ( for example )

total_trophy INT( 'infinite' )

Dude I just told you the enterprise stuff cost more, but companies like Sony has data warehouses. The extra data cost is marginable. Even a couple of terabytes for Sony is nothing compared to the scale of their network. That said, companies like Google employ over the counter cheap computers just fine.

***Those things areNOT stored on a support with a limit because you can add more to the set***

Anytime you do any of those operations there are down times and etc. You want minimal downtime and risk. Any operation is a risk, including human error.

***That's why they have to do their changes during maintenances ..and if you've paid attention the pSN goes on maintenance at regular dates ? why do you think ... because they are making backup and necessary changes to their software and hardware .. Those interruption of services are happening several times per year already.***

Actually, backups are likely done continuosly, as taking down a system to perform bakcup is plain stupid these days. It wouldn't surprise me if Sony had writes to multiple servers at once. Changes to software do require some downtime, but it doesn't mean it is acceptable. So you are planning in maintenaince so you can save a tens of thousand of dollars? That's moronic. One day of lost sale for PSN far exceeds that!

***you're thinking like someone who hasn't managed large chuck of data on a server based environement.***

If anything, I think you have proven the opposite. Clearly you know very little about databases, servers and farms. First of all, a db column to store numbers is typical 32-bit int already. Sure it has a max, but as I pointed out, it isn't 500k and if it is a moron did it on a number that clearly will grow. You don't generally alter large databases because it results in lots of data re-writes, especially if it is numeric type. Now if it is characters, it is completely different, because it is costly.

Numbers are cheap to store in databases, while text blobs are not.

***you can't just SET ( for example )

total_trophy INT( 'infinite' )

You have to put a number***

No, you would just say

CREATE TABLE user_trophy (total_trophy_score INT, ...)

instead of moronic (which I'm pretty sure they didn't):

CREATE TABLE user_trophy (total_trophy_score MEDIUMINT, ...)

***When you program like that , you have to set yourself limits. Every devices has limits. What they didn't see is this group of people earning a lot of them quite fast .. BUT THEN AGAIN , they still can earn them and once they patch the limit the total count should be restored .. ***

The limit is set when you declare the column, obviously it isn't a hardware (device) limit!

You don't design based on anticipation, you design based on possibility. If you allow it, you have to account for it. Plain and simple.

That said, I'm pretty sure that the issue isn't technical, but rather Sony wanted to adjust the score based on how fast users approach it, so the scale doesn't get out of wack as you move higher up.

By the way:

***Nobody will create a table for billions of users with huge margin , it's a pain to manage. AND it cost a LOT ***

There is no pain to manage, it is far more pain to upgrade!

The problem with trying to get this many trophies is that you have to pick your games based on how easily and quickly you can get a lot of trophies, not how great the game is. People like this are playing video games only for the sense of accomplishment, not for enjoyment and fun. Not somewhere I want to go. Playing a game for its quality comes first, its trophies are a distant second. For me anyway.

I got plat on DS last week. I was playing with one of my friends from NY and I live in TX. We just played like 4-5 hours a night for like a month (with a few days where we didn't play for some reason or another.) It's not that difficult, just time consuming. I logged like 130+ hours.

excatly aside from all the time to plat the med-hard game. He obviously didn't mind playing easy plat games too but to each his own.

Level 12 with 3 plats and had a ps3 a year, not really bothered about trophies tbh
Marceles  +   1096d ago
I have 40 platinums but I haven't whored for a whole year. If I kept at it I'd probably be where Dropeti is now. Oh yeah, Dropeti said to call you a n00b :) (j/k)
dragon82  +   1096d ago
I am at 53 platinums and could probably be up near 100 if I hadn't stopped whoring hardcore about the same time as you.
Tru_Blu  +   1096d ago
I'm at 56. I go through phases, I'll whore for a month or two then get like 15 trophies total in the next 2 months.

It's honestly not something to be proud of. Doesn't this dude have a life?
MrBeatdown  +   1096d ago
Exactly. To get 250 platinums, he needs to have gotten a platinum every three or four days since Sony added trophies. The absolute easiest platinums take at least around 5-6 hours, with the average taking far more than that. Probably 10 hours if you're doing speed runs. Plus you have to factor in all the time he spent getting trophies in games without platinums.

That's at least three or four hours of gaming every single day. I've played that much on plenty of occassions, but I couldn't do it every day for three years straight.

I've 38 plats and I just stopped going for plats after that. I've about 20 or so games that only need 1 trophey that I just left cause I was sick of them. Trophies can add fun to many games but they can take it away from games too. Kudos to him for plating NGS2 but a lot of his games are disney games and many rpgs are at the 0% mark which says that hes one of those people that stays away from games that take 100s of hours to plat.

Where does he get money for all these games?
p.s he plat Heavy Rain?.. how many times do you have to play that to get all endings?

he should submit this to someone get it looked over like trophy times, maybe he could get in a record book or something.

I have platinumed Heavy Rain, yes you have to play I think 18 times but from a certain point,you dont have to play it from scratch.besides Heavy Rain is awesome cause you change the outcome by playing it different times.I got the plat by mistake since I was playing it many times to see all the different outcomes.Personally I belive its wasted of time to go for trophies by playing crappy games just for the trophies.well depends how someone sees it(my self married with child)to me its a wasted time of playing many hours of videogames anyway.But I love videogames :)
J86blum  +   1096d ago
I sadly don't get to game much between my two jobs, I have however plat 2 titles and im proud of that one is Resident Evil 5, and the other is infamous 2. and before anyone says oh those are easy.. I don't care what you think mkay:)
dragon82  +   1096d ago
Heavy Rain was an easy platinum if you liked the game enough to play through it multiple times.
UltimateIdiot911  +   1096d ago
It was painful if you try to plat the game right away, since that is what I did. Heavy Rain is actually my first plat.
SonyNGP  +   1096d ago
Oh look. It's "him" again.
Alos88  +   1096d ago
There's a maximum? That's kinda disappointing, I was hoping it would just keep going on forever.

Don't be jealous of people that are 15+, just because they are that high doesn't mean they have no life.
mac_sparrow  +   1096d ago
I consider myself to have a fulfilling life. I'm engaged, until recently taught high school ICT (now working support), I read, I go to the pub, I watch movies and TV shows, and cycle. I am also at level 17.

And I do these things all at the same time... without looking!

Alot of people are calling him a cheater, but at the end of the day, I know alot of people who use youtube to help them get trophies ie finding treasures in Uncharted for example. I for one can look at my trophy list which sits at level 13 knowing all of mine are legit, without use of hacks and youtube help. How many people can honestly say that?, which in a way makes trophies pointless when comparing with friends who have plats when they have used youtube to find hidden treasures etc. Just my opinion though, I play the SP experience in my 1st playthrough then replay a second time to get trophies, after that I`m generally done with collecting trophies or the game (not enough gaming time)
Convas  +   1096d ago
I'm sorry, since when does usinga guide on Youtube make you illegitimate? Did you find ALL the hidden treasures in Uncharted 2 by yourself? What about the Dead Drops in inFamous 2?

There's nothing wrong with a guide, it doesn't make you any less of a gamer than anyone else.
WitWolfy  +   1096d ago
Well said, if you still put the effort into finding them even after getting a idea where it is, its still a trophy/achievement earned

Marceles  +   1096d ago
Dead Drops in inFamous 2 is actually easy since there's a power up that helps you find them. inFamous 1 on the other hand...torture. But yeah, any trophy whore that says they don't use a guide should have their PS3s spontaneously combust.
Simco876  +   1096d ago
I use guides because I don't have enough time to search around a gaming world for shards/drops whatever I am looking for. Just easier to get a guide and cut your time in half
mamotte  +   1096d ago
Of course, when I put youtube and search for it, the trophy magically appears. No effort.

There's two kind of trophies: The ones that requires skills, like beating the game on a certain difficult, and there are the collectibles, like find all the pieces of something. I cant do the second ones. I just hate travelling an searching and looking. And, if you search for the difficult ones, the video will not pass the game for you, after all.
