  1. There's no sign of a Rare Treasure Drop weekend on the horizon (only a Double XP weekend starting 18 Oct 2013), but you should keep your eyes on Naughty Dog's Uncharted 3 Calendar (about halfway down the page).
  2. If your time is valuable to you, then it would really pay to pick up a second PS3, a second copy of U3, and a heap of controllers, and perform split-screen Hunter boosting by yourself. Doing so allows you to take kills as both Heroes and Villains - contrary to the beliefs of some people, treasures do get dropped when killing Heroes... but they're only dropped when the Hero is killed, not when they're downed. For this reason, I usually performed stealth or explosive kills on them. There were very few games where I had less than 5 treasure drops, and in some games I was getting up to 9 drops. I managed to get my last ten treasures in about 25 games of Hunter... the biggest gap was for my penultimate treasure, which took 9 games (the final treasure only took 3 games!). 25 games is 12.5 hours, and I was expecting about 10 hours per treasure... so I consider the investment in the second PS3 money well spent (I already had two copies of U3). Other details (which are all personal experiences and presented as a record of what I did, rather than rules): I set up a brand-new account to boost against... once the first one got to Level 10, I created a new one. It felt like the lower levels yielded treasures more often. One account was local (Australian) and one was US. I did use a hat (Elena's bunny ears) and a taunt (one of the Carltons) bought from the PSN store. I actually found it easier to boost with four controllers than with two - you can get a really nice stay-alive rhythm going! I left DLC on all the time, but flipped Hat Stats on or off depending on matchmaking collisions. In some games I'd get no treasures from killing Villains at all... but then the Heroes would drop more frequently (and vice versa). Numbers seemed to average (as noted above) to around 5-6 drops per game. "Rare" treasures came from Heroes and Villains. One of the latter treasures - the [Vagabond] Tibetan Snuff Bottle - was picked up about 6 times soon after its first appearance, making me think that there may be a time or date component to the drops. Easiest maps: Museum (by far the easiest for Hero killing), Chateau (set the Villain spawn to the interior area above a chest), and Fort (actually fun for both).
  3. I'm also up for NSPs and Plunder wins - I'll add you, JC_Villa PSN: moobaa UTC+0930
  4. The "someone" was probably me, and it came about due to the original 12pm/am issue. When I said I couldn't make it, that was for the Saturday timeslot; the Sunday time is fine for me, so if you need an extra player or two let me know. I'm keen on NSPs and Triple Threats (which could be done together, depending on how you run it).
  5. Shall try and make Friday (improbable) and Saturday (likely) night's sessions; they're a bit past midnight here though, so I may only last 2-3 hours :} Shall keep my eye on the chatroom though.
  6. Heh. I have to at least pretend to act my age sometimes @Kpo - it's 10am on SATURDAY. Here's a timezone convertor for you
  7. Ah - didn't realise it was 12am (0000) GMT. I can't make the session - please remove my name :} (Also: Central Australian timezone is GMT+0930, not +09 )
  8. @Kpo : Add 10 hrs for Eastern states, 9:30 for central, 8 hrs for Western Australia. So that session would be Saturday night, 10pm Eastern, 9:30pm Central, 8pm Western.
  9. I can manage this for only around 3 hours; I'm willing to cede my spot to someone else who can stay longer, though. Thanks for specifying a time, BTW; it's really useful for people like me who are in a wildly different timezone (+0930).
  10. Hey Pete.

     

    Yeah, any time you want to bash them out give me a msg if i'm online.

  11. Adam - I notice you haven't got your Look Out Below trophy yet (Detonator medals on Fort [Hard]). Are you interested in giving it a bash, or are you committed to doing it with someone else?

    Cheers :)

     

     

    Pete.

  12. I'm interested in any Plunder or Three Team Deathmatch boosting groups. Would also love to find an Australian / Kiwi Hunter booster. PSN ID: moobaa GMT+0930
  13. Hey Pete. It's Adam here. May as well add you as a friend here as well. How is Uncharted 3 going?

  14. @qq100 - will see how I feel when I get home... it's been a shocking day at work. I'd also suggest we have a third person - anyone who's played with me before would understand why
