Trophy Breakdown: 40 8 2 1

As of November 2012, 2K Sports has shutdown the online servers making the platinum (Walk Off!) unattainable. If you have earned the following trophies listed below, then platinum is still attainable.

Here is the list of online trophies that can't be obtained anymore:
  • My Fellow Man
  • The Team to Beat
  • Count It
  • The Road to Greatness
  • The Spice of Life
  • Upset Alert
  • EpidemiK
  • A Day in the Life
  • Mid-Summer Classic


Introduction

Welcome to 2K Sports annual baseball game Major League Baseball 2K11. This year's game presents a redefined fielding system, which now gives you the players the ability to play gold glove caliber defense. The new throwing meters help you make the perfect throw, and landing indications that help you run down any fly ball with ease. This year's edition, just like MLB2K10, puts a great emphasis on creating your very own player and controlling your player as you work your way as a can't miss prospect in the minors to becoming a Hall of Famer in the big leagues through the improved My Player mode. Following the road map and guide below should help you to a Walk Off!


Roadmap

Step 1:
You want to create a profile in the very beginning when the game prompts you the first time you load the game. Your profile is the key to Domination, Production, Power Grab, and Learning the Ropes. Plus, you should select yes to always connect to 2K Sports, so you can download MLB Today for A Day in the Life and Mid Summer Classic (only available on July 12, 2011).

Step 2:
From the Main Menu, you want to go to Management > Rosters and select a team you want to max out (Team 1) the batters and starting five pitchers to use in one year of franchise mode, and one team you want to set all the stats to zero (Team 2) for the batters and pitches to use in getting Power Grab, Domination, and Production. Once you have made your edits, go from the Main Menu > Game Modes and select Franchise. Select your maxed out team and set up no trades between CPU teams, and set all playoff games to a best of 1. Then sim all of spring training and make sure you play at least 20 games in your franchise to unlock franchise trophies. You can sim the rest of the season, which should have earned you most if not all MLB season records and the Remember Me trophy. With your maxed team you should easily make the playoffs and earn a MVP award nabbing you You're Special, and then win the World Series to unlock The Champs.

Step 3:
Time for some online play. You can boost the online trophies or not, it is up to you. Though the great thing about online play is all trophies all are able to be accomplished in online play except the My Player and Franchise mode trophies. To play online go to Play Now > Ranked. The online service will search and match you up with another player. If you want to boost with a partner, then you two need to sync together in hope that you are matched up with one another. Play your first game as the Pittsburgh Pirates in a completed game to get Upset Alert, which mean all 9 innings were played, then play nine more games with nine different teams to get The Spice of Life. Also at some point you will want to win three games in a row, which will get you Count It and The Road to Greatness. If at any time you beat the San Francisco Giants, then you will get Team to Beat.

*WARNING* 2K will occasionally reset the servers, thus resetting your games played.

EpidemiK, you will either get by playing someone who has played a 2K developer or you actually played a 2K developer in a completed online game and you get this trophy whether you win or lose. Finally, join an online league and win one online league game to gain My Fellow Man.

Step 4:
From the main menu you want to go to My Player and create your player you will use to accomplish all the My Player trophies: This is Why I'm Here, The Goal, Payback, Your Day,A Job Well Done, 2-Peat, What's Your Ring Size?, The Call, The Top, and The Hall. You can play on rookie difficulty, or if you are in a rush you can play on custom sliders. In the games you play, the game will give you a goal to accomplish when you come up to bat or are on base. Being successful in goals will give you key skill points to use on your player. If you get a 10+ game hitting streak, then your goal points will be doubled and if you play in a "Key Game" then all "Key Game" goals are doubled. There will be many games you need to play called "Key Games," which are if you're in a MVP race with a group of players, chance at improving your shot at winning your division, wild card race, key game against your rival, key game against you inter-league rival, and playing against a top player at your position.

I suggest you play your first two seasons to increase your overall abilities with only a little bit of simming. In games you sim, you earn less skill points and games you play you can earn a multitude of skill points. If you sim, there are times when the game will stop simming, and make you play a clutch moment, and a clutch moment is where you have a goal such as hit a walk off hit.

Throughout your My Player career you will need to meet 2 or more team goals, 5 or more season goals, and 5 or more career goals. Then once you have met these goals, go to career decisions and retire and you will enter the Hall of Fame. This will take you at least 5-6 seasons. Expect all My Player trophies to be very time consuming.

Step 5:
Now it is clean up time and you can go after any trophies you have left. If you need certain trophies like Production, then use your max out team (Team 1) from franchise mode and play against a team with minimal ratings (Team 2) to play with in Play Now mode in a quick game.


Trophy Guide

Franchise Mode

You're Special
Win a Season award in Franchise Mode. (play at least 20 games)

If you are using your maxed out team (Team 1), then you should easily get at least one season award. The awards are given out at the end of the season. The awards are:

AL & NL MVP
AL & NL CY Young
AL & NL Rookie of the Year


Remember Me
Break a record in Franchise Mode. (play at least 20 games)

Using your maxed team, you should be able to break most if not all MLB season records. The easiest ones to target are shutouts (16) or Homeruns (70). After you played 20 games and finish the regular season, you will have earned most if not all MLB season records and the trophy should appear before the start of the post-season.


The Champs
Win a World Series® in Franchise Mode. (play at least 20 games)

Before selecting a team to play with in Franchise mode, I suggest you modify a team where all 9 batters and your 5 starting pitchers have max stats. With Max stats, you will be able to easily play 20 games (you can do 3 inning games or 9 inning games) and then sim the season. With a team of max stars you should easily win your division to make play-offs, and win an MVP award thus getting You're Special.

Make multiple saves when you start the post-season in franchise mode, in case you sim and lose. If you played 20 games already, then you can sim all of the post season. When the post season is over you will have Remember Me and The Champs pop.

My Player


The Goal
Accomplish a Team Season Goal in My Player Mode.

When you are in the majors, your ball club will set a season goal for the team based on how you performed the year before. Goals can range from winning the division, winning 10 more games than last season, and becoming a dynasty. Once the season is over and if you accomplished the team goal the trophy will appear.


The Star
Make the All-Star team in My Player Mode.

Sometime during 15 seasons, if you had a good first half of the season you will be selected as an All-Star. When you select to play the All-Star game, the trophy will appear. DO NOT SKIP THE ALL-STAR GAME, YOU MUST PLAY THE GAME FOR THE TROPHY.


Payback
Hit a HR off a former team in My Player Mode.

Your player should be in the 90+ overall range before you go for this trophy. Once your MyPlayer is in 90+ overall range, demand a trade to a team in your division. Your aim is to go to a division rival, as you will get more opportunities to get a Homerun off your former team.

You can also back up your MyPlayer save. With the backup save, demand a trade to a division rival then hit a Homerun off of your former team, if you do not want to leave your current team.


Your Day
Win player of the game in an MLB game in My Player Mode.

You have to be playing on a MLB team to get this trophy. To be named the Player of the Game, you need to have the best performance out of everyone on the field and WIN the game. Normally, you are given the player of game by driving in the most runs (RBI's), hitting multiple Homeruns, throw a shutout, or any other outstanding statistical performance.


A Job Well Done
Win 100+ games in a season in My Player Mode.

See "What's Your Ring Size?"


This is Why I'm Here
Be successful in a major league clutch moment in My Player Mode.

Throughout your My Player career you will have moments in game where you are presented with a clutch moment. Clutch moments can involve anything from: getting an extra base hit, moving the runner to scoring position and getting a walk off hit. You will have many clutch moment opportunities in your career. Just be successful one time and this trophy will appear. (Just a tip on your first clutch moment: it may not pop as it has been buggy for people first time round. The second clutch moment your are successful in should make the trophy pop.)


Back to the Cage
Get a Golden Sombrero (strikeout 4 times in 1 game) in My Player Mode.

This will require your player to be in one of the top three spots in the lineup to have a chance at four plate appearances. All you have to do is strike out four times and the trophy is yours.


The Call
Get called up to the Majors in My Player Mode.

With your created player, you will need to meet numerous goals set forth by your team in order to be called up to the majors. Some goals include playing 15 games, increasing your right and left contact to 60, and having a certain hitting average. Meet the goals set forth by your team and you will get the call.


The Top
Become the #1 ranked player in your My Player organization.

You must become the overall top player on your team. The longer you play the better you will get, but other players on the team can either increase or decrease. If you cannot become the top rated player, then you can request a trade to team without superstars by going to career decisions. The trophy will appear when you play your next appearance.


The Hall
Make the Hall of Fame in My Player Mode.

To make the Hall of Fame you need to accomplish 2 or more team goals, 5 or more season goals, and 5 or more career goals. Once you have accomplished a certain amount of goals you can retire. You can retire by going to career decisions and select retire. When you retire, you will enter the Hall of Fame and then the trophy will appear.


2-Peat
Win Back to Back World Series® in My Player Mode.

See "What's Your Ring Size?"


What's Your Ring Size?
Win a World Series® in My Player Mode.

Once your MyPlayer is in the 85+ overall range, you should have a good team around you. If you do not have a good team around you, then you can demand a trade to somewhere better.

I suggest playing the majority of your games to ensure you win 100 games to unlock A Job Well Done. Once in the playoffs, you can either sim or play the games till you win the World Series nabbing you What's Your Ring Size?.

Complete all off-season tasks to begin the next season. In the next season, you do not have to win 100 games, but keep a lookout on the playoff picture to see if you will make the playoffs or not. You may need to play a few games in September to clinch a playoff spot. When the playoffs begin, you can either sim or play the games till you win the World Series for a second straight year nabbing you 2-Peat.

Mid-Summer Classic
Play the All-Star game in MLB Today.
**No longer attainable due to server shutdown**

On July 12, 2011 play the MLB All-Star game in MLB today. THIS IS A MUST PLAY AS IT IS ONLY AVAILABLE FOR ONE DAY. The MLB Today games come from the 2K server so you need to be connected to the 2K server to download the MLB All-Star game on July 12, 2011. From the main screen select MLB today and play the MLB All-Star game all the way through and the trophy is yours. You do not have to win the game.

**You cannot try and not sign into the 2K servers and change the PS3's date settings to an earlier date to unlock past MLB Today matchups. MLB Today matchups come ONLY from the 2K servers.


In-Game


Down But Not Out **
Get a hit with 2 strikes in a non-simulated game.

As the batter, work the count to where you have two strikes (ex. 0-2) and get a successful base hit.


Grab Some Pine **
Get a strikeout to end the inning in a non-simulated game.

"See Stooges".


A Pitcher's Best Friend **
Turn a double play in a non-simulated game.

There are numerous opportunities for a Double Play to happen in game. The most likely occurrence is when a batter hits a ground ball to the Second baseman or shortstop and the first out is made at second base, (you must have a runner on first base), and then the Second baseman throws the ball to first base to get the batter out.


To the Rescue **
Get a save with the tying run on base in a non-simulated game.

In the ninth inning, you must be up by three runs or less, and load the bases with enough batters to have the tying run on base. Its always best to have your closer warming up in the 8th inning and then bring him in the 9th. You cannot allow the tying run to score.


Don't Call it a Comeback **
Win after being down by 4 after the 6th inning in a non-simulated game.

Make sure you are down by 4 runs after the 6th inning and make the comeback to win. If you need extra innings to win, then it's ok as all you need to do is come back from being down by 4 runs after the 6th inning. A good way to do this play as your Maxed out team (Team 1) against your weak team (Team 2) and intentionally walk in 4 runs to ensure you are down by 4 runs after the 6th inning.


Take That **
Get an RBI after being brushed back off the plate in a non-simulated game.

You need to have a baserunner in a scoring position, either on second or third base. The opposing pitcher has to throw a pitch that makes you back off the plate. After the back off pitch, you need to make a successful hit that scores the baserunner for a run. Easiest done with a boosting buddy.


The Start of Something Special **
Lead off an inning by hitting a triple in a non-simulated game.

Using your Maxed out team (Team 1) against your weak team (Team 2) will make this much easier. Play in AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants, as the field is huge and has gaps that will help in getting a Triple. With your maxed out team, you should be able to hit a ball far enough to end up on third base as you batter will have 100 speed and hitting ability.

Also, can be on done online with your boosting buddy letting you make it to third.


Dual Threat **
Steal base with pitcher in a non-simulated game.

If you are using your maxed team (Team 1), then you should have no problem in stealing a base with your pitcher. To steal, you press and hold , and then release as the opposing pitcher is about throw.


I Came, I Saw... **
Hit a Walk-off Home Run in a non-simulated game.

This can be done in a 3 inning game. You must be playing as the home team in the bottom of the last inning and with your batter hit a game winning home-run. Inside the park home-run does count.


Stooges **
Strikeout all three hitters in the inning in a non-simulated game.

In any inning, strike out the three hitters you face. Its easier if you use your weak team (team 2) as this team will have the lowest batting ability, increasing your chances of striking them out. By striking out the last batter you will also get Grab some Pine.


He Taketh Away **
Rob a Home Run in a non-simulated game.

One of the most time consuming and difficult trophies in the entire game. To rob a run takes luck as there are very few opportunities to rob a Homerun. I suggest using the following method as with patch 1.10 the game counts a robbed Homerun as a Homerun and an out causing the trophy to not unlock.
  • Go to Game Utility > Delete MLB2K11 patch 1.10
  • Start game up normally, do not install patch 1.10 (you will be playing offline)
  • Management > Rosters
  • Here you will need to edit Andre Either (LA Dodgers), Corey Hart (Milwaukee Brewers), and Ryan Braun (Milwaukee Brewers) to have 100 in all Fielding abilities. Then edit Carl Crawford, Jacoby Ellsbury, and Dustin Pedroia of the Boston Red Sox to have 100 in Homeruns.
  • Play Now mode > Away Team: Boston Red Sox/ Home Team: NL All-Stars
  • Hit to change the ball park to AAA West and hit to confirm
  • Start of game > Pause the game to change the difficulty sliders
  • CPU Batting: 100 Contact/80 Homerun Power---USER Fielding: 100 in Outfielder Speed

At every bat you will need to check/adjust your outfield depth by hitting and cycle through till you outfield is playing deep. Throw the CPU high weak fastballs in the strike zone. Then when the opportunity presents itself to rob a home run, you need to hit when it says "Climb Wall" (only time a home run that is able to be robbed). THE TROPHY WILL ONLY UNLOCK IF YOU CLIMBED THE WALL. If you failed to rob a home run after the first three Red Sox batters, then select quit and rematch.


I Like to be Thorough **
Hit for the Cycle in a non-simulated game.

The cycle consists of you getting a Single, Double, Triple and Homerun in a game with one player. Inside the park Homeruns count.

This is a difficult trophy. Getting a Single, Double, or even a Homerun is do-able in a game, but getting a Triple is very rare. I suggest using your Maxed out team (Team 1) against your weak team (Team 2) to make this easier. Play in AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants as the field is huge and has gaps that will help in getting a Triple.

Go after the Triple and Homerun in your first two at bats. If you fail to get a Triple and Homerun in your first two at bats, then quit and try again.

The easiest way is to do this online with a boosting buddy.


No Hole too Deep **
Battle Back: Down 0-2, get walked in a non-simulated game.

This can be tricky as you need a good eye to tell which pitches are balls and which pitches are strikes.

Take two quick swings to put you in a 0-2 hole. Then keep an eye out to see where the ball looks to going. If the pitch is either too high, too low, or out on the edge, then the pitch is a ball. If the pitch is near the middle of the plate, around your player's waist to chest area, then it is a strike. If you think a pitch maybe a strike, then take a defensive swing by moving left or right to compact your swing to give you a foul ball. Get four balls and the trophy is yours.

My Main Squeeze **
Bunt the man home in a non-simulated game.

You need to have a base runner on third base, preferably a base runner with good speed, such as Carl Crawford of the Boston Red Sox.

With a runner on third, have the batter throw down a bunt towards the first base line. After the runner on third scores, the trophy is yours. It helps to edit your hitters speed, acceleration and bunt abilities. You can also edit the opposing teams pitcher, first baseman, third baseman, and catcher ability in fielding range, throwing accuracy, and throwing strength to help the base runner score from third. Or simply use your maxed out team (Team 1) against your weak team (Team 2).


State Farm™- The Road to Victory **
Get 3 consecutive batters on base in a non-simulated game.

Using you maxed out team (Team 1) you should easily get three consecutive batters on base. Throughout your game playing you will encounter opportunities to get three hits in a row or a combination of hits and walks to get three consecutive batters on base.

Hawkeye **
Draw a walk on a full count in a non-simulated game.

See "No Hole too Deep".


Throw First and Aim Later **
Miss your throw to first base with 2 outs in a non-simulated game.

With 2 outs in an inning, you need to allow a hitter get a hit off you. The hit needs to be a single. When you are throwing to first base, hold till the markers is in the red, and once in the red release . Being on red means your throw will be off, and thus you will miss your throw to first.


You Did What?**
Hit a HR with a pitcher in a non-simulated game.

Choose a pitcher from a National League team and edit his stats to have contact, eye, and power to 99. After editing your pitcher, play a game in a National League park with your edited pitcher's team. Hit a Homerun or an Inside the Park Homerun, and the trophy will appear after you score.

If you do not want to edit a pitcher, then use a boosting buddy. In a Ranked game after your pitcher hits the ball, have your boosting buddy screw around in the outfield till your pitcher scores.


Mr. Consistency **
Get a hit in all 9 innings in a non-simulated game.

This a team trophy. Your team needs to get at least one successful hit in each inning of the game. If your having trouble, then use your Maxed out team (Team 1) against your weak team (Team 2).


A Virtue**
Face 10 pitches as the batter in a non-simulated game.

This is a tricky trophy as you cannot let yourself get a walk by accident or strikeout early into the count. At most you will have worked the count to 3-2 (3 balls- 2 strikes), and now you need to at least foul off five pitches. A good way to foul off pitches is to swing late and bat with an average hitter by moving the or to compact your swing making foul hits easier.


One Man Show **
Throw a Perfect Game or a No-Hitter on Pro or higher in a 9 inning game, in a non-simulated game.

The easiest way is to use your maxed out team (Team 1) against your weak team (Team 2). Make sure you allow no runs and no hits. but walks are OK. At some point in the game you need to score a run to win the game.

If you have a boosting buddy, then you can also do this online in a ranked game.


Misc.

Power Grab
Hit 50 HR with your user profile.

See "Production".


Domination
Strikeout 200 batters with your user profile.

See "Production".


Production
Drive in 250 RBI with your user profile.

Make sure you have a user profile and play Play Now games, or Franchise games with your user profile active. It will auto save after all games, and any time you drive in a run with a batter, hit a homerun or strikeout a batter this will be counted on your profile. You can view your stats by using the VIP Viewer from the main menu.


King of the Hill
Get to the top of the Best of the Best ladder in Home Run Derby® Mode.

You will facing off against the top 20 home run hitters of 2010. You will want to edit a player to have max abilities in contact, eye, and power to 99. Now use that player to face off against the top 20 home-run hitters of 2010.

To make things easier, you can edit the top home-run hitters to have least amount of abilities in contact, eye, and power. The problem is even though you edit the top home-run hitters, when you reach the top 5 of 2010, they can still hit 10 home-runs in a round and you begin to drop off and struggle to hit home-runs even though your player is maxed out. The great thing is the game does save so you can come back where you left off last time and it gives you an opportunity to have a re-match.

If you are struggling even with editing the stats, you can try playing in two hitter friendly ballparks.

Yankee Stadium (Home of the New York Yankees)
  • Edit your batter to be left handed
  • Change the CPU batters to be right handed
  • When selecting the ballpark, change the wind to gusty
  • Before your first swing, pause the game and change the hitting from total control to classic
  • Now, move the to (hold it there) and hit to swing.
Minute Maid Park (Home of the Houston Astros)
  • Edit your batter to be right handed
  • Change the CPU batters to be left handed
  • When selecting the ballpark, change the wind to gusty
  • Before your first swing, pause the game and change the hitting from total control to classic
  • Now, move the to (hold it there) and hit to swing.

Here is the list of hitters in order:
  1. Carlos Gonzalez (Colorado Rockies)
  2. David Ortiz (Boston Red Sox)
  3. Troy Tulowitzki (Colorado Rockies)
  4. Alex Rodriguez (New York Yankees)
  5. Carlos Pena (Chicago Cubs)
  6. Jim Thome (Minnesota Twins/Free Agents)
  7. Mike Stanton (Florida Marlins)
  8. Dan Uggla (Atlanta Braves)
  9. Josh Hamilton (Texas Rangers)

Learning the Ropes
Achieve gold in all the drills.

Drills are located under game modes. There are nine drills in all. If you get gold in any drills you do with your My Player in My Player mode, then those golds will carry over as they are saved to your profile. There are seven drills to use with a batter and two with a pitcher. For all drills, your best bet is to edit a player to have max abilities in either hitting, pitching, base-running or fielding based on the drill. Most drills will require some practice to master the basics of the drill to eventually get gold.

For Control and Velocity: (the most tricky drill)
Use Pat Neshek of the Minnesota Twins/San Diego Padres (depending on pre or post patch). Neshek, has a greater area for a target then others (ie: two yellow squares to throw/locate your pitch). Edit Neshek to only have two pitches: the fastball and the cut fastball. Increase his control to 99 and lower his movement to 25. Now when you find the location of your pitch, use only 1/4 of power to release your pitch (ie: do not go max on your pitch as you need a really weak pitch to hit your target/location perfectly). Eventually you will get 5 out 6 targets for gold.


Walk Off

When playing for the franchise trophies, are all three trophies supposed to unlock together at the end of the post season? I followed the guide and at the end I got two of them, but not Remember me, and yes I did clear the records and players from my team have set a few. Maybe I have to be controlling them when they set the record? Just wondering if anyone might know.

Remember me popped at the start of the post-season. I played the first 20 games of the season. I willl look into this and get back with you tommrow. I will try a new franchise tonight and see. Knowing 2K this could be a buggy trophy. Seems like they always overlook thier baseball game.

Thanks for the info, thats mainly what I wanted to know, when it was supposed to pop. I did the same thing, played the first 20 games of the season, not spring training. I'll try again as well, see what happens this time.

Well I tried clearing the records and this time no go. I made multiple saves and nothing. Quite strange, then after the 6th re-try it popped. Then I tried doing it without clearing the season records and it worked like a charm! So since it seems buggy, I suggest to NOT clear your records, and break a regular MLB season record.

I have changed my guide.
