    The Official Platinum Difficulty Discussion Thread

    Thanks to antoniosbandana of the Banner Team for making this banner.

    This thread is first and foremost a discussion thread, but it also has a poll. Please do not vote in the poll until you have earned the platinum trophy for this game. That being said, we invite you to post below and discuss the difficult aspects of the game, even if you do not yet have the platinum trophy in your collection.

    When you post, give more than just a number. Give reasons why you feel the game is easy or hard. What parts of the game are easy or hard? Were there collectibles? Were they a pain? Is there a required online component? How easy or hard is the online portion? What is the most frustrating part about the game?

    Once you have obtained the platinum trophy, feel free to return to this thread and post your official vote. Say something to the effect of "I give this a 2 because there was only one tough spot and the collectibles were easy to find". At this point, you may also add your vote to the poll.

    The poll is public, meaning everyone can see how you vote.

    Obvious spamming will not be tolerated. Moderators will take action against obvious spammers as necessary*.

    *NOTE: This Official Platinum Difficulty Discussion Thread and others like it constitute an Official Site Feature here at Misuse of this thread or this poll may count as an abuse of a site feature which is expressly forbidden in the site rules. Moderators will give punishments as necessary.

    I voted a 4, but the platinum is actually more like a 3.5 or 7 out of 10. The on-line is very glitchy, I made my top level in multiplayer but did not get the trophy until a couple games later. We were boosting the quickest checkmate, so it probably just took the servers time to catch up with our games. There are a couple other glitched trophies, which don't pop when they are supposed to; for example, 1 trophy popped after I did several online games of Fog of War after completing the trophy requirement hours earlier. The main reason why this is harder than Fritz or Pure Chess is because you need to change the way you think about Chess. Every chess player has certain rules set in their head about avoiding traps and advancing the queen too early. Once you learn to break these habits, the game becomes easier. Sometimes, foolish playing is how you win the game. There is 1 luck-based level in White's campaign, where you need to checkmate your opponent in 20 moves with Fog of War activated. I played that level 20-30 times using a chess board to simulate what I thought was the computer's plays (just so that I could see the computer's side of the board). It is very frustrating as 20 moves goes very fast in a game of Chess.
