This is my last achievement, taking part in four tournaments.
The next tournament is in 12 hours, and thats like 3am tomorrow, and I got college in the morning, so can't make that.
So does anyone know how long this lasts for exactly (whole day, couple hours)

thanks

i read somewhere in one of the post on here that this will be a 1 day tournament, and others last upto a week , so you should be ok

I have not entered any tournaments but it says I've entered two. Odd.

Can these be done in Jam session? I didn't do the current one because that Battersea map never came up in the online games I played. I'd like to knock it out before they put up the next one.

It can be done in single player so I'm assuming that it can be done in Jam Session as well.

You've got plenty of time mate, don't worry. When you get home you'll be able to join it. I live in Asia and joined it roughly 11 hours it initiated.

Every time I even try for a tournament or time trial ghost it says "Dirtnet connection failed", WTF?

When you're in the game menu go OUTSIDE and look around until you find NEWS. Find where it says something like "Current tournament" and look at the details. After you've viewed the details (eg. longest slide) you must go to your dirt tour and choose any event and press "free race" or you can actually do this online on any mode but that's the way i did it. After you've played a race and ensured you've attempted to do the longest slide it should tell you, you've done the tournament thing.

do u have to get in the top 100% for the longest slide or do u just have to have posted a slide?

@im really annoyed with the ghost download problem, i can't believe the game is only just out and there are problems already.

EDIT: got the ghost cheevo now.

Next one is in 6 days. It's easy to enter. I didn't even noticed I entered this first on. all you have to do is make one slide and your in the 100% of the leaderboard xD Now I just need some luck to win against 7 people -.-"

i got mine in last man standing, most try to smash into others so avoid the packs, i got lucky because for some reason the countdown clock froze and we just kept doing laps, everyone quit out and when the last guy left i got the achievement after crossing the line.

i have one a few last man standing races though, team races may help too.

Does anybody want to share a good track and/or place to get a big drift? I can imagine people won't because they'll want to get a high rank to earn more FP, but it would be nice if someone shared :)

I've managed just under 500 in a single slide on one of the trailblazer tracks in Morocco.
Can't figure out where or how the people at the top of the leaderboard are getting well over 3000!!!

Cool, thanks. And tell me about it, does anyone know if alternating slides from left to right counts as one slide, I assume it does as there isn't a corner in the game that you can slide that far around. I guess you just have to style out a drift round a corner into another drift and keep going. It's just hard to tell if you're actually drifting or just sliding around a bit
