Step 1: Training:
Go to the training modules to get acclimated with the game. It's very diverse and there are many weapons and vehicles to get used to.
Step 2: Playing the Game/Utilizing the Green Servers
Most of the trophies are extremely easy and can be obtained in split-screen matches. HOWEVER, for Executive Honor, Warhawk Award and General trophies you will need to dedicate a lot of time in ranked matches to earn points and the subsequent requirements for all of the badges and all of the medals. Huge thank you to Juzam666 for his obtaining medals tips seen under Executive Honor.
Green servers are rookie servers and will serve you best for earning points. It is recommended that you not obtain the 4x4 badge (750 4x4 kills globally and 15 4x4 kills in-a-round) so that you can stay in the green servers and obtain points and medals as best as possible while playing against rookie players. This badge is easy to get accidentally if you spend a lot of time in the 4x4. If attempting this method you'll want to avoid 4x4 kills until you're ready to leave the rookie servers. YOU WILL NOT RANK UP DOING THIS. You’ll remain at the wingman rank during this process. If you do decide to rank up, the green servers will no longer be accessible to you and you’ll be forced to play against more experienced players from that point on.
PLAY ZONES and lots of it. Zones will net you the most points for the time put in. There are 5 team based modes. Zones consists of capturing all of the bases located on the map and then reducing the enemy base to level 1. Capture the Flag consists of obtaining the enemy's flag from their home base and returning it your home base to score a point for the team. Team Death Match is your standard team death match mode; kill the opposing team as much as possible. Collection is just like CTF except there are 4 flags or "cores." Bringing all 4 cores back to the main base at once will net more points than just capturing one at a time. Hero mode is TDM on steroids. For 1 minute a person on each team is deemed the "hero" and has access to all weapons, is much harder to damage and can take out enemy Warhawks and troops much faster. Other than Zones, if you play CTF on small maps and focus on defending the flag and killing the opposing team when they obtain your flag, you can rack up a ton of points. The Close Corridors map on Archipelago is the best for this strategy.
You will have to get comfortable with the flight controls, and become as good as you can get in the Warhawk. You’ll need 5000 air-to-air kills for the platinum. This is why sticking to the green servers is best. There are some highly skilled pilots in this game that make getting air kills HARD. Essentially in team-based modes, whether you're in green rookie servers or regular servers the air typically wins the game. This means whichever team has the best pilots is most likely to take the win. Being a decent pilot is very important in remaining competitive.
Once you have the necessary kills and points or feel ready to leave the green servers then get your 4x4 badge and start ranking up and finishing up any kills or point requirements you have left.
Step 3: Clan Trophies
The clan trophies are best obtained by getting help from the boosting thread located here: Boosting Thread. See the trophies for more information.
Warning: Beware of being banned. You can boost points and kills in ranked servers, HOWEVER there have been many people who have had their stats completely wiped due to this. It would be better to just play the game in the green servers as long as possible.
