Back to England tomorrow and my precious games consoles :D
Enjoying this? I thought it was great, except from some glitchy trophies.

Yes, it's really fun so far! I dived it way back in July and used it for a few competition trophies here and there, but now I'm sinking my teeth in
I've braced myself for the glitchy trophies, though: I had my practice with those in Forager
experience the level of intrusive ads that there are on this now. Couple this with the fact that the other day I went over 24 hours without a scan and I can see why
people, like myself before end up shelling out for Pro. Just sad to see the state of what used to be one of my favourite trophy sites, and now my Pro has run out,

I doubt I'll be around here much longer. Seems like they're essentially forcing people into subscribing to Pro with how worthless the site seems to be without it.
Yeah, the ads are super intrusive. These kind of ads don't work as they just encourage people to get adblock.
Generally these sites don't try to encourage Pro with perks but rather disincentivise being free with negative stuff which isn't really the way to go IMO.
There once was a time (though they eventually fixed it) where the site barely worked on mobile, and they had a functional mobile version locked behind Pro.
Adblock blocks them all really well. I have pro on here, but not on TA or TSA. Adblock means I never see any ads on any of them
The good thing now about adblocking is that you can whitelist/blacklist certain sites, so you can select what you do or don't want to see.
For me, I like this because in general, I would rather just give to a site I use a lot and not see ads. Though I can also have ads on for sites that I don't use often
enough to justify giving to. for TGN, I give my time, but only get pro for TT, so I use a blocker on the other two. Would be good to have an option that covered all three
sites rather than full price on each one.
All comes down to how much you feel you benefit from the service & customise your access accordingly. Harris for example I understand never buying pro given his situation
I had a look at TT without logging in and adblock turned off and wow, its enough to turn away new people from joining the site.
I think overlaid ads are the issue. Ads are fine when they are in banners down the side or across the top, but when pop up over the site, taking up (no exaggeration) half
The screen and you can't click on what you want or reat the page, that's when I goes abit far and put speople off...
TrueTrophies, bigger popups than porn sites!
I completely agree. It's really getting out of control.
Interesting to hear all different opinions on this but most people seem to be in agreement that the ads are ridiculous, so glad to know I'm not the only one
@Harris Didn't know that about the phone site, absolutely ridiculous business practice that. The phone site now at least works but ads will load in slower than the page
you're currently looking at so you can be knocked about the page when you're just trying to read a comment etc.
@Slayer Adblock is great but doesn't really provide a solution since I primarily browse at work (on breaks) and I don't have admin access, or my phone, which is unrooted
and requires some serious work arounds or downloading some weird browsers which I don't fancy using to get rid of ads. I hope it changes soon but I won't be paying for
Pro again, as like Harris says there isn't a lot of incentive, it's more just to get the site out of it's shitty standard service.
@Liquid Agreed, I'd sooner just use PSNProfiles for things now because the ads are bad but not as bad as here, it's just the community that keeps me here nowadays.
I almost forgot about that, the way ads bounce you around the page as they continue to load, that can be annoying xD the amount of times I've clicked the wrong links...
I had pro but they accused me of cheating on TA given trophies out of order on Arkham asylum on windows which was a GFWL issue
It all got sorted out and they restored my TA but I wasn't gonna reup pro on TA and TT after that
I remember the ads being bad on the site but not that bad, I think it’s just a stark contrast from what you’re used too more than anything else tbf, going from the scan
Privilege ect and the adlessness back to that is a hard pill
This site is a flop and I understand it’s counter productive to do what they’re doing but the ads are probably just damage reduction
The comments lead to an interesting read however some decent insight into others views on it
This isn't a new milestone, TF2 and MW just slightly dipped me under 2.4, you can ignore this xD.

I’m trying to push 2.0. Sitting at 1.985 or something
It doesn't look like anything to me...

Cheers! Doubt there'll be any more trophies for this one now, glad to see MOST of the bugs have now been fixed too, though one still persists...
ofc, it would be the most annoying one of all, besides the one that made a track nigh on unplayable anyway.
