ESPN Instant Classic - Setup
 
http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/SK/Ml/0Y...fn-gqjUw==.jpg

One for the History Books
Play a game that gets designated as an ESPN Instant Classic (excludes co-op).

Notice: This guide has been confirmed to help some people gain this achivement. My guide is just a basic structure that I used to unlocked this achievement and has been known to not unlock for some. Just keep trying if you don't have this yet and be really patience. It took me about 7 tries to get this and I did the same thing everytime.

Setup: Default (5 mins,Varsity, default sliders)
Teams: Tenn @ Florida
Rivalry: Yes

Boxscore:

1st: Tenn 0 Florida 7
2nd: Tenn 7 Florida 0
3rd: Tenn 10 Florida 7
4th: Tenn 0 Florida 7

Final Score : Tenn 17 - Florida 21

Espn Classic Score: 646

Method: I used all of the default settings. Started the game up by scoring early, ran the clock out going into the 2nd quarter. When the 2nd quarter began, I kicked a FG straight out of bounds, giving them the ball. When on defense, I pumped the crowd up alil bit and held the CPU to 3rd down. When it was 3rd down, i ran FG Block which made them throw over me for an easy TD. When the 3rd quarter started, I gave the ball back to them and repeated the same process, letting them score 10 uncontested.After that,I began to play normal scoring 7 in the 3rd. While running down the clock to 1:52 I scored the last TD and held out for the win.

*Tip: While on offense, I used the quiet crowd animation to get the crowd involved. Idk if it helped but it worked*

Also, i used the even team(RB) while setting up the team.

Confirmed by DarkManX : Sliders and Quarters can be changed.

thank you 4 doing this, great idea because this might prevent me from getting 1k

xMaJoRdAnGeRx 07-17-2009 06:34 AM

I updated in the 1st post :).
I hope this helps!

DarkManX 07-17-2009 06:42 AM

Do you think It will matter if I use 2 controllers? I haven't been very lucky for this achievement just seeing if it would make a difference.

xMaJoRdAnGeRx 07-17-2009 06:44 AM

Idk, you can try and see. Most of the achievements unlock using 2 controllers.

DarkManX 07-17-2009 06:58 AM

What team were you Tennessee or Florida?

xMaJoRdAnGeRx 07-17-2009 07:04 AM

I was Florida.

DarkManX 07-17-2009 07:05 AM

what quarter length and difficulty?

xMaJoRdAnGeRx 07-17-2009 07:08 AM

It was the default. 5mins and Varsity.

dillon 07-17-2009 07:28 AM

Did you use sliders?

xMaJoRdAnGeRx 07-17-2009 07:43 AM

Nop, I kept it all the same.

DarkManX 07-17-2009 08:01 AM

My Man you are a genius I am so happy right now. I even used sliders and changed quarters. I really thought this was glitched for a lot of us. The score was exactly the same I pumped up the crowd as much as possible and scoring summary was the same for me. Do it in the exact order that he has. Good Luck Everyone!

dillon 07-17-2009 10:08 AM

Yep, this is glitched for me, did the same thing you did pumped up the crowd and 0 ESPN classic points:(

This achievement is glitched for some still. A triple overtime game is easily a classic. My triple ot game gave me 4000 classic points.

DarkManX 07-17-2009 02:26 PM

I didn't use two controllers maybe you should try that.

Florida was my showdown team and Like you it was to no avail until I played the CPU. I was constantly using 2 controllers whenever going for this achievement, Do exactly what he tells you keep it at the same score and same scoring sequence. Again I played on freshman with sliders on 3 minute quarters.

Basic BG 07-17-2009 07:00 PM

just played a 5OT game Cal vs. USC (cause USC is my showdown team and i can't change that) with constant lead changes and crowd involvement (pumping up/quieting crowd) and it still didnt work........ o ya and im only using one controller against the CPU........ im gonna try fla v. tenn 1 more time..................

Basic BG 07-17-2009 07:32 PM

1st lemme say BIG UPS to Major for the strategy and props to Darkman....... i erased all my files cleared cache, loaded up game, selected florida as my favorite team....... loaded up tenn @ fla with sliders adjusted, 3 min quarters, freshman difficulty..... followed the guide to a T, ESPECIALLY the scoring sequence (my first 2 tries the scoring sequence was slightly off)...... after the game i had like 347 instant classic score or some crap (who cares) and it popped ..... this strategy works even for the glitchy games like the 1 I had....... just follow scoring sequence and it should unlock:drunk:woop::locked

Good to hear this worked for you. Would of sucked having 990 GS in this game Welcome to the 1000 club.

dillon 07-17-2009 11:08 PM

OMG It finnally unlocked i was so worried there was 1 second left in the game and i threw a 50 yard TD and made it 21-17 i LOVE YOU

PoopsGalour 07-17-2009 11:33 PM

Thanks xMaJoRdAnGeRx for the method. It kinda worked for me. I tried to do the scoring as he mentioned, but in my ineptitude, i failed to to score in the 4th quarter. So i lost 17 - 14, but guess what i STILL got the achievement. I got a Classic score of only 258. HAHA!

FYI, if anybody cares, i played in Freshman difficulty (ineptitude to the max) with 3 minute quarters. I left the sliders at 50% for CPU and User.

xMaJoRdAnGeRx 07-18-2009 10:31 PM

Updated with video tutorial.

you need lipo 07-18-2009 10:42 PM

as everyone else, i was having the same problem.
i got the achievement finally.
i played an exhibition game; mich v fl. 3 mins sliders default for the first half. the game was close 10-3 during half. then i set the sliders in my favors, i scored a td and to tie with 1 min left. then i let florida run down and score a field goal as time expired. and walaaah i got the achievement. so my theory is if you always win, maybe try to lose?? lol

Brady816 07-19-2009 12:21 AM

You can have the game on fresh and just keep the game about 3 or 7 points the whole game till the 4th quarter but make sure you win and pop the achv will be there. Also i was working on the 4th quarter come back and was able to win the game and get another espn classic also!!!!!! Good luck guys!!!

darkestone 07-19-2009 04:31 AM

what i did is play a very low opponent kept trading field goals every quarter, then touchdowns in the fourth. While even, with very little time left i punted from my own 1 , off to the side so the cpu got the ball around the 30. They kick the FG and it unlocked.

I did it the opposite way with me winning and it didnt unlock, so i can confirm that losing is the way to go lol.
