Well. I trust you Gollawiz. So, do what you feel like to do. ☺️👍
DarbazMahmood 6 Sep 2023 15:06
If there will be any subset for this game. I suggest clearing the game in titan mode with no magic and with no blocking and no upgrades, all at the same time. 🤣 Professionals do that, and they make it seem easy. But bless the soul of those who try it.
sdfmental 6 Sep 2023 15:10
I don't understand how having to watch tutorials or using glitches is rewarding for a player. It's not way more satisfying to win an achievement by yourself instead of watching a video and simply reproduce what someone else have done ? Also, I'm not a very skilled player, but i have mastered all souls games for example, but the difficulty of the souls games are designed in correlation with the whole gameplay Here, i'm not really sure GOW devs have made the game with a no upgrade gameplay in perspective, i don't remember the trophies for the ps3 hd collection but i'm not sure there was a no upgrade (and in god mode) trophy. I think a no upgrade in normal mode could be a good challenge for most of players, then a subset with a bunch of nerves killers achievement would make terminators players happy too.
DarbazMahmood 6 Sep 2023 15:24
Well. Tbh, just 1 glitch is the reason behind not removing the no upgrade run. And that's the ability to save in between the separate phases of the first translator. With that glitch, a normal titan difficulty run is pointless(too easy) that's why this set is even possible. Other than that, I swear I didn't used any other glitch at all. Even though there are tons of it online. Also, we watch tutorials to learn stuff.like holding circle graps, we don't completly copy them, just learn from them.
DarbazMahmood 6 Sep 2023 15:40
Listen bro. I know how you feel about it. But why don't you trust me and just go watch a gameplay on youtube, search for "go2 nopgrade/damagless run" and just select one of your choice. I bet you will master this in about week. If you play regularly. Just give it a try. 👍
WeskerHunk 9 Sep 2023 01:33
sdfmental I understand what you mean regarding the subsets, but we have to take into account that Retroachievement's current implementation of bonus sets is kind of a pain in the ass to deal with (no offense to anyone on the site, I get that there may be reasons for this and I am not blaming anyone, but let's be honest, it's not ideal) and also adds the limitation of not being able to acquire achievements for the bonus and main set at the same time. If subsets were less limited and easier to deal with I'd be more inclined to agree with you, but as they are now I honestly think that achievements should only go to bonus sets on very specific occasions, though I understand and respect that there is room for discussion regarding what is too hard or not. It is my personal opinion though that GOW no upgrade runs on Very Hard are actually not that bad, with the only truly bad parts being the ones that recquire protecting others.
WeskerHunk 9 Sep 2023 01:42
DarbazMahmood I'm not a dev here, but as a programmer I believe your idea for a bonus set run may be impossible without requiring everything ro be done on a single session because as far as I know there's no way to track these things through multiple sessions, seeing as the game itself gives no indication that it tracks these as stats. For the no upgrade runs it's probably as simple as just checking if the player has anything at level 2 or higher at the specific points where achievements are meant to trigger. However, I do like your idea for subsets assuming I'm wrong about this limitation. Besides, even this limitation wouldn't seem too out of the question as long as this hypothetical subset separated the run into many short segments by giving more achievements during the run than what we currently have for the no upgrade run.
WeskerHunk 9 Sep 2023 01:46
sdfmental Speaking for myself at least, watching tutorials and learning the right strategies is part of the fun, that leads to a much better understanding of the game than any regular run. I do agree that glitches are another story though, but as Darbaz said it's really just one that isn't hard to execute and is right at the place where it's most needed to alleviate the only truly bad part of the run, so I think it's forgivable.
WeskerHunk 9 Sep 2023 01:53
Also, just because a tutorial was watched to learn stuff from other players doesn't take away from the achievement of managing to execute everything perfectly yourself. It's still you behind the controller when it's time to actually get the job done, no shame in that. And believe me, there's a big difference between knowing what to do on paper and actually doing it, else you wouldn't see so many complaints about the translator. Besides, you really can ditch the tutorials and just try every method for yourself if you decide to do the run, most things aren't that impossible to figure out if you are really dedicated to trying by yourself without any guidance.
WeskerHunk 9 Sep 2023 02:07
Gollawiz I appreciate your work on the set and respect your decision to change it for future players, but I only have one question. Is there any way to make a bonus set for the Titan no upgrade run as it was originally and unlock these achievements there just for the people that got them before the change? Because to be honest while I still appreciate that I did the run on Titan it would be nice to keep our proofs that we did it, specially considering that when we did it it was mandatory to be on Titan. This kinda feels like if you got a gold trophy for some competition or something and displayed it somewhere nice as a reminder of what you accomplished just for you to one day go look at it and find a silver trophy for second place instead. Seeing as this is an achievement site I think this is an important issue to address, and regardless of what anyone may think about the implementation of subsets it is undeniable that with this suggestion the "trophy" would be preserved for those that already got it at least, just displayed in a different room.
John82 9 Sep 2023 14:08
So basically I just wasted 4 days, for beating Titan with no upgrade. Thanks!
DarK8990 9 Sep 2023 17:21
At least we can say that we did it.
BerkRider 9 Sep 2023 18:06
thx god I'm strugling to defeat zeus with no upgrades on titan
if I'd killed him yesterday I'd be pissed rn :V
Gollawiz 9 Sep 2023 18:40
@WeskerHunk and those who have already beaten titan + no upgrades, I have copied the achievements to unofficial and will create a bonus set in the future. The achievements will carry over so you will still have that proof :) So you have not wasted anything, John82.
DarbazMahmood 9 Sep 2023 19:00
Well, that makes me really happy. Really looking forward to the subset. Btw, my suggestion is one damagless run, and no magic run. But not all mixed together with the no upgrade run. That would be suicide. 😅
DarbazMahmood 9 Sep 2023 19:06
Btw, the magic less run is only possible with other bosses beside theasus. But I really hope you succeed in implementing them.
WeskerHunk 10 Sep 2023 13:15
Gollawiz oh, in this case I can see that you dealt with this very well, seeing as the Titan achievements aren't actually lost and the no upgrade run from the main set should now be much less controversial, while still being challenging. I think one of these days I will even do a no upgrade run on God mode to see how it compares to the Titan run (I'm specially interested in seeing how that cursed translator part ends up). This game never gets old anyway. Thank you for your dedication to this set and making it a great experience for its players.
HanzoHasashiUMK3MK11 19 Sep 2023 11:20
I'm recently playing this game again and I wonder why they didn't include completing Very Hard in the upgrade including magic and life and completing Very Hard or at least Hard with General Kratos. I no longer see the point in playing this game without some kind of challenge when I play. I could also talk about a possible Very Hard with General Kratos in the upgrade and without using the Blade of Olympus, but then I think that would be too insane and that only Hardcore players would be able to do it.
WeskerHunk 20 Sep 2023 15:29
Well, Very Hard without upgrades was on this set until recently, but the achievements for that run are gonna be moved to a bonus set and in the main set they were changed to God no upgrades, which is propably still challenging enough for a main set (though I haven't tried it yet on God mode to be sure, only did it on Titan). I don't particularly think this set is lacking challenge at the moment, though I did like the Titan no upgrades run (minus the translator). I suppose anything more challenging than what is currently available here is considered bonus set material, and I agree that it would be cool to have more challenges added in a bonus set for this game. It's just sad that bonus sets are kind of a hassle with how they are currently implemented.
HanzoHasashiUMK3MK11 20 Sep 2023 23:22
I think it would be just keeping a Very Hard with no upgrade or a Very Hard or just Hard with General Kratos. In bonus mode I'll probably do things that don't involve "no damage" things without damage are boring
