#1 The Importance of TrueTrophies
Similar to our parent site, TrueAchievements, TrueTrophies holds a very important role in the trophy hunting community. One of the biggest annoyances that I have with PlayStation's trophies are the XP level assigned to each trophy. It makes sense that a bronze would be less than a silver, gold or platinum, of course. I have no issue with that. The issue comes from being awarded a measly 15 XP for a trophy that is incredibly rare due to difficulty. While difficulty isn't something that can be measured on a scale that would make sense for achievement weights, the rarity is something that can be used to an advantage.

That's where the importance of TrueTrophies comes in. The adjusted weights for the trophies help to align players in what their actual stats would look like. In a way, it's good that there are static XP for the trophies to keep the playing field level, however, a high level player could easily cheese out visual novels, rack up on platinums and have a high level. If the level is intended to be an at a glance idea of a player's trophy collection, it is not working the way it should. At least in my mind.

Part of this lays on developers, too. Granted, they are at the mercy of Sony's rules, but assigning something that is outrageously time consuming or difficult to a fucking bronze is insulting to hunters.

Thankfully, TrueTrophies helps to create the balance necessary to feel the reward the achievement deserves. The argument can, and has, been made that achievements on the XBOX suffer the same as trophies do. In a cross platform game, that same bronze may be worth 5 GS, for example.

However, I think the bigger issue lies in that PlayStation utilizes this leveling system. If the leveling system were not even in place and all you had was a trophy count, I believe this would radically change the mindset of the trophy weight. If a bronze pops, okay, yeah, it's a bronze. That sucks, it should be silver or gold or whatever, but now you have the added knowledge of knowing that it's 15 XP, when all that time could have been used toward getting more trophies that would help to add to your level.

Anyway, this is something I've just been bouncing around in my head for a while. I've found it hard to fully articulate this in a manner that makes some sort of sense. I likely place too much emphasis in my head on the level on PSN, but it's pretty much front and center when you look at a card on the PlayStation HUD. It's something I feel can be improved upon greatly, but for now, TrueTrophies satisfies me enough.

If I purely rated it on enjoyment, it'd get a 0. As I tend to be more objective...IDK but it wouldn't get much anyway. Would be much better if it were included as part of
