So I was curious, what do y'all achievement hunters use to check your overall profile? Like for instance most of us trophy hunters use PSNprofiles.com

http://psnprofiles.com/nobodygrotesque

What do y'all use?
We tend to use xbox.com, since it is the official site and all...

Apparently, no awards for losers over there. Wouldn't be fair to punish our own if they lose when the PS3T aren't willing to do the same.

Platinum trophy? It's just like those sad "get all other achievements" achievements. If you need a bonus for completing the game, then the game itself must not be worth completing.

And I use a personal database I constructed in order to track multiple stats with insane accuracy.

Many of their patrons seem to disagree with the idea of not having a Losing award. Though, Olsen is the bossman, so, it's good form to respect his decision. When x360a wins, we'll always know in our hearts

Sign of them knowing they can't beat us. Otherwise they wouldn't have any concern about such an award.

well we all know that Sony got the whole trophy thing from achievements but Microsoft just started adding those Get all the achievements achievement to counter that...granted they are usually worth 0G.

Personal database NIIIIIIICE!!

We all respect Olsen and he rules with a iron fist like when some of the members of our site came over here trash talking (before the event was announced that is) he gave this promise that if happens again the people would be banned because it won't be tolerated,game sharing, hacking, every non legit thing he won't tolerate but he doesn't punish for no reason so thats why he gets all of our respect

Well me personally I think a reward is for achieving something, so a reward for loosing seems kinda pointless

I've been holding off on playing any games until GSL starts. So I started another play-through on AC2 and I forgot how great this game is.

I thought I might of seen one that converted trophies into achievements.

Hold on, let me google it... here's a trophy calculator that converts trophies, or achievements to equal a level: http://ps3trophies.comyr.com/

I can't find anything else?

I would guess that whoever is in charge of the competition has taken this into consideration but it's true, Achievements and Trophies are not always even when it comes to their respective scoring.

Here are a couple of many examples of how Achievements vs. Trophies are unbalanced. These are taken from Bioshock Infinite.

Vigorous Opposition: Killed 75 enemies either with a Vigor or while the enemy is under the effects of a Vigor.
Xbox 360: 50GS
PS3 Trophy: Bronze

Heartbreaker: Killed a Handyman by only shooting his heart.
Xbox 360: 50GS
PS3 Trophy: Bronze

Sightseer: Used all telescopes and Kinetoscopes in the game.
Xbox 360: 50GS
PS3 Trophy: Bronze

Auld Lang Syne: Completed the game on 1999 mode.
Xbox 360: 75GS
PS3 Trophy: Silver

Not quite as much of a discrepancy with this last one, but enough to warrant a mention. At a glance it seems like a fifty point achievement is about the equivalent of a silver trophy.

olsen27's Gamercard

Awards Showcase Micro Guide - Silver
Total Awards: 1 (more» ...)
The points for trophies goes like this:

Bronze = 15 points
Silver = 30 points
Gold = 90 points
Platinum = 180 points

Most retail games have around 1200 points per game and the PSN games have around 300. There's no real good way to do a conversion of trophy points (which most people don't even know) to gamerscore. That's why we're ignoring all of that bullshit and doing number of trophies vs. number of achievements.
