    Such serious lies! I maxed out at 16hrs per day, thank you very much!

    But seriously, people like Hakoom, DEMON-ONE13 , Killerxx etc. are just insanely crazy.... I want to know what they do for money. :Paranoid::Paranoid:

    dont forget the good old account sharing scenario

    pioneered by assholes on 360's and looking at some of the trophy counts, possibly also happening on ps3 :)

    if its a free accounts, you need to use the update website once a day.

    if u paid for a premium account with MMOS, it will update for you automatically.

    just remember to sync the trophies with the server before you do the website update.

    Trophy testing is the slowest, most tedious part of the whole test process.

    A producer typically sits down and says to himself, "how can I make people play this for as long as possible before they rage-quit and never come back?".

    He figures out his allowance of trophies and then declares them as achievable, and sends them off to the developers who add the goals/code into the game.

    Then we poor morons have to go and see if every...single...trophy...is possible. You know how trophies have stupid reqs like 'kill 600 anal soldiers' or 'defeat willy wonka without being hit by a flying top hat' while wonka throws dozens of hats per attack in a 20 minute battle? We have to run those tests, and often a new version arrives before we can finish the test. Save data (including trophy) is not always compatible so we have to start from scratch.

    A tough trophy to obtain probably takes a total of 6 guys grinding out that task for a total of 800-1000 hours - if it works as designed. Then add the other 30-50 trophies :) Each broken trophy adds 1-2 weeks to the test cycle because if Sony/Microsoft find a trophy that isn't awarding properly then the developer has just received an automatic FAIL on submission. Submissions cost us$10,000 just to have Sony/Microsoft bug test on their end before the game is deemed fit in terms of bugs (quality and bugs are two different things, sadly).

    Microsoft and Sony dont hire people to grind out trophies for public profile bragging :) We have a private VPN shared between Sony, Microsoft, Namco, Sega (and any others I forgot) so we can work on trophies/achievements without them leaking. And as an example, for Noby Noby Boy, Google set up a farm of YouTube servers so we could test our uploading features for the in-game generated content.

    SCORRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREE!

    MP trophies are epically awesome, can't wait to play this through a few times :)

    (I've made a personal promise, NO guides for UC2/AC2 until I cant go on. Aka, only used for treasure hunting once I've played them to hell.
