For all the people who have missed Reward cards like getting 1 mil in a play through or 20 defensive races, there is a way to restart career without loosing all your reward cards .

All you have to do is go into career and make sure you waste all your money keep getting busted until you have no money for new car and no car, the game will start itself again but you WILL still have all your cards atc. still

leveling up

is there a trick to leveling up, i have some ppl that i am working on the online achievements with, and we are playing ranked canyon, and driving off of the cliff, but no one is getting ranked up, the game shows that the winner is getting 28 points, but the rank isn't going up, anyone know what is going on with this?
thanks for any advice or tips.

As with so much stuff with this game the online XP is buggy. You can be racing someone earning XP, then after a while it just stops counting. No warning, and nothing to tell you its stopped, apart from not going up levels after a lot of races.

I'm also going for OXP and run into the same problem, usually after about 30 races, and then you will need to run through the following steps to fix it. Not sure why this fixes it, but I found it somewhere else, and it does work.

Player 1 create a new unranked lobby, invite your boosting partner (player 2) and set it to Pursuit Tag. Load the race, wait til it has started, then player 1 press start, then select quit from the menu. This will take player 1 back to the front end, and leave player 2 in the game, where he goes back to the lobby.

Player 1 now use your Friends List to select Player 2 and Join session in progress (only available once he gets back to the lobby). Do the same again, just this time player 2 quits out when the race starts.

After that go back to boosting how you were before.

I don't really know what this does to the server, but I've done it several times and it always gets me earning OXP again

OUTSTANDING, thanks very much for your help with this! i'll have to try this out with and get on with the slow process of ranking up

Ugh! I finally finished all the offline stuff. If anyone is still working on the reward cards, keep in mind you can use the canyon drift tracks to get the 10/25/50 quick races quick. Just keep picking one and driving off the cliff, press A to continue back to the menu, and repeat.

I did all the Challenges before working through career mode. I actually found Darius to be even more of a pain in the ass than that one other challenge on the same track. Maybe I should've looked up what car they forced on me for that and tried it. I ran out of points within 100 feet of the line twice using the damn Skyline, and got fed up. I finally gave up for the night and used the Vette this morning. It was hell getting through the other 3 races to face the bastard in the canyon again since that car doesn't corner worth a damn, but I finally made it. Took me a half hour or so of failed attempts, but you can zip past him on that first bend and basically let him push you down the hill. Funny how slamming into you doesn't slow him down at all, he just pushes you right along.

You need to have $1,000,000 in your bank at one time. This is very difficult. The only advice I can give is to not spend any money until the end of the game. Buying the cars in the online marketplace helps out quite a lot. Try them out..

Got it today
Thanks maka for the guild.

One of the EA Mod gamertag name became available and I snatched it. I won't say which but I would like to try out if it'll work in giving out the EA Mod achievements.

It is a silver account and needs to have a gold status in order to work. Not a 48hr trial as it doesn't make you a gold member really.

If anyone is in need of this achievement, and is willing to try it out, then try to obtain a 1 month code for me to add to the account.

Please contact me via PM so we can exchange info, including the mod name to where to send a FR to. Etc Etc.

Hopefully it works. If it does, then i'll be willing to set up monthly race nights.

If anyone knows for a fact it won't then please let me know via a post on this thread. Please don't post an opinion, just facts on it please.

I was stuck on this achievement for a while and i'm just TRYING to help out.

Why am I asking for someone to do this? #1 i need a guinea pig, #2 i don't have a 1month code nor want to add my credit card to the account.

only difficulty 6/10

I think this game is quite hard to do 900 or more points.I haven't played this game for the terrible achievements.Level 50 and Cards are extremely difficult, the Level 50 online is very long to boost and some cards are very tough to win. For me,if Dead or Alive 4 and SEGA Superstars Tennis are difficulty 10,also this game merits 10.I have played all the Need for Speed series games but I'm not afraid to not ever played this one

Difficulty is measured on the skill it may require to actually get some/all of the achievements. With a dedicated partner(or by yourself if you have two consoles) you can boost canyon to level 50XP via player matchmake in about 6hrs(if trading) or 3-4hrs(if with two consoles, like i did). Some of the rewards cards are indeed VERY difficult, specially when you are trying to get EA Mod card at this point.

When I finished the game, i would've given it an 7/10. At this point if you take sniperwork's banned EA Mod gamertag into the equation i'll give it a 6/10 since reward cards are meaningless until the next EA MOD for carbon is found.

We've only tried it with 48hr trial codes(which do not give any accounts a gold status). It didn't unlock the achievement.

I am unsure if the silver status on the account is the reason why it is not unlocking, which is why if anyone would like someone to volunteer and donate such code to use it on the account, then they will have first crack at it as well. I'm not spending $10 on a one month code to test out something that'll benefit someone else, and haven't found one dirt cheap on eBay either. That is why i'm willing to work with someone if they do supply the code. Again, it may/may not work.

Once found to work or not, then i'll post it here so everyone can stop/continue sending FR and msgs to the account.

But surely if you can go online and play a match over XBL with the 48 code active then it should work ??
Could you tell me the name of the Tag you are using ?? there is a list i seen a while back with the all the EA Carbon mods that could help with this and ill just confirm for you that its on the list incase maybe this isnt an EA Carbon mod and just a regular EA mod. And also incase anyone does waste the money on a 1 month code. I have a friend on my list who would possibly be up for providing a code possibly to try this out. Even if you dont want to give out the name on here mate, if you just PM me the name of the tag on here or via XBL, i will check the list and you have my 100% guaranteed word that i will not speak the tags name to anyone.
Thanks regardless mate.
