For Black Bean and Milestones first venture into trophies they can be forgiven for their only being a few. Reading through the trophy list they seem quite simple to get but there are a few tricky challenges and the fact that you have to win 12 championships add to the difficulty of this game. Also the wilderness that is the online mode will leave you rushing for the trophy boosting thread. Be warned that anything other than the North American version of the game has not been patched to include trophies.
Step 1: Track Records
For your first step you should be looking to get into the game and get used to the controls with a few challenging lap records to beat. Each lap record that you beat will add 1 card to your collection for the “Secret! Master of Cards Cup” trophy. During the time attacks you will not be able to leave the tarmac otherwise the lap will become invalid so be sure to drive carefully. You should be aiming to beat every circuits lap record so you can unlock the “Secret! Master of Records Cup”.
Step 2: Challenges
Moving on from the lap records and before you step into the championship stage you should attempt to complete every challenge. An advantage of this is you won’t get used to cutting corners if you haven’t done the championships beforehand and you should still be confident of not going off track. The first two challenge categories ‘Time’ and ‘Special’ end immediately if you drift off track so keep that in mind. There are a few tricky challenges but the best advice I can give you is to practice. You will develop your own techniques and master the challenges. Be sure to check out the tips for “Master of Challenges Cup” in the trophy guide for a more detailed description of harder challenges. You get awarded 1 card for every platinum medal you win in the challenges so be sure to aim for those.
Step 3: Championships
This is the step where you will spend most of your time. You get one trophy for winning a championship on any difficulty and a lot of 'Win _ races' trophies. The real challenge is to win 12 championships. You have to win 1 championship with each of the teams to earn cards. If you disable 'real rules' and enable 'jump starts' in the realism settings this will help you to win each of the races in quicker time and hopefully make it less tedious.
Step 4: Online
For the final step before platinum you are required to win 20 online races. Multiplayer is really quiet so you'll be best to post a requests in the boosting thread here. Select 'Multiplayer' from the main menu then set up a match with specific settings, get your partner to search for those settings and you're good to go. Once you've won your twentieth race the trophy will pop as well as the platinum, congratulations. Thanks for reading and good luck with the trophies.
