    What were your biggest losses/letdowns/failures as a trophy hunter?

    I got around to thinking one day about my failures as a trophy hunter. They say that losses and mistakes are how we learn in any aspect of our lives. So, I thought it would be interesting to go back to what we wish we had succeeded at as a trophy hunter; the Platinums that got away, the games we were embarrassed by our lack of prowess at, and so on.

    As for me, I have a few that stand out:
    1. Getting Platinum for just 16% of my games with Platinum Trophies.
    2. Numerous 0% games, often Plus freebies or ones I rented via Gamefly and never did anything with after installing trophies.
    3. Having my WWE game Platinum streak end with WWE '13, even though my online rank never reset. Of course, ranks almost never reset when they were as low as mine was.
    4. Having an extremely rare, though not unique, trophy glitch permanently lock me out of Platinum on CSI: Fatal Conspiracy.
    5. Having my PS3 start to break down during the final month of EA Sports MMA's online servers lifespan when I was Belt Rank 69 of a possible 90. With outrageous XP being given out per match and win, my chances were good that I would have an "ultra rare" Platinum in my collection -- until my dying PS3 made the decision for me. With all the hate directed at me simply because I won by submission instead of knockout, I would have loved to rub a Platinum Trophy in their faces. Sadly, I'll always think about what might have been.

    So, I turn this question over to the rest of the forums. What are your deepest losses?

    lol you know the good thing about games is that you can go back to most of them.... mk sv dc plat took me 5 years!! My biggest let down is DLC, without that forced onto my trophy lists id be above 95% completion. it would be ok if it was worth the ridiculous money they ask for it but its not ie; ps allstars wants $3 for 1 map to get 1 silver trophy. I get over it buy it just annoys! I did have my ps3 fatty break down and I miss the xtra usb ports lol

    1. Not checking if im willing to plat a game before I start it. Or at least checked if id enjoy playing the game. MK v DC will forever stay at 2% because I not only is it a time consuming and difficult plat, but I hate the damn game and cant stand playing it.
    2. Not resetting my clock online after getting the YLOD. I was too eager to finish off Darksiders when I got my ps3 back and now the plat has no timestamp.

    4. Having an extremely rare, though not unique, trophy glitch permanently lock me out of Platinum on CSI: Fatal Conspiracy.

    I think the game has been patched since then, I was able to get the plat for it! I had read about the glitch online but I think after so many gamers having this issue, that Ubisoft nipped it at the bud.



    As for me it would be the games I bought after servers were closed, and this was before I payed attention to trophies. Now I usually don't buy a game if the is not attainable.

    Like black_bunny, I regret not testing games on an alt account before establishing if I like them or not. It's not a big deal for 0% games because I can hide them. But I feel compelled to go back to games like Bionic Commander and Midnight Club LA where I popped 1 or 2 trophies and realised it was complete shite.

    That and playing my kids' games on my account instead of creating separate accounts for them. As a result, I've ended up with an eclectic mix of good, bad, indifferent and incomplete trophy lists that don't really represent the games I like to play.

    Closed servers and glitched trophies is also agitating. Trophies are part of the product and I'm not getting what I paid for when trophies are impossible. For example, Aussies and Kiwis who bought their regional copy of Skylanders Swap Force (my son and I play it together) on PS4 cannot connect to the online servers, which makes the easiest trophy in the game impossible to achieve. Activision dropped a patch to fix the problem, but we can't install the bloody thing! Activision has given up on us, so I'd need to import another copy of the game from the US or UK just to pop a single trophy

    Ultimately, who really gives a flying f....ig, no-ones care about your trophies but you. There's no way I'm starting again on a new account just to make myself feel better about the games I've played.

    Screwing up getting the 2000th trophy.

    Now it's a crappy Yoostar trophy instead of "Elder God" in Mortal Kombat.

    I had it perfectly setup to earn 8 quick trophies so I could then grind out the needed wins. But noooo, Sony had to remove Walking dead from the sale. I didn't want to start Season 2 without playing Season 1. So I got screwed by the game giving me an extra trophy that I didn't want.
    DIEDIEDIEDIEDIEDIE!

    Mortal Kombat
    Trying to get 2500 respect points before server shutdown, taking a break at 2000+ points. Letting the servers go down as I knew they would come back online, only to realize that my points have been reset to 0 with the new servers...

    Medal of Honor Warfighter
    Trying to load back a savefile from ps+ after dying on hardcore, turns out you can only do that once a day, and I tried it on my 2nd death.

    Working on: The next platinum trophy!
