Cheers for that. That's a pretty good system really as I hate playing pro tour for a few reasons. I ain't too hot at racers to say the least and I also hate the way people race way too dirty online (no pun intended). I like me a nice clean race but seems you can't get one which is a real shame

So, as you may have seen I've written most of a roadmap, and completed writing much of the actually guide itself.

My current focuses are:
-Making videos for every DC Challenge on Platinum, and I have most of the first 3 seasons covered. (Some videos are still just being uploaded to YouTube)
-Finding the easiest boosting method for online ranks
-Adding details to hard achievements
-Finding a good video(s) for the battersea compound missions (dont have time to make them myself)

I cannot for the life of me pop the Join The Party achieve. Yet I have won every single one of those events more than once. Cleared my cache and still nothing. Already a level 20 and fan level 22 and can't pop them. Dumb.

Whats left:
-text for gymkhana championship achievement + videos for battersea 100% (Still looking at various options)
-videos for remaining dc challenges (about 11+) - either making them myself or finding them, as I'm running low on time
-General proofread for mistakes
-Verify the 1000 time @ 35+ hours.
-Boosting method for superstar (online leveling)

Hey Maka,

First off thanks for the guide. But I wanted to point out on "Perfect Sprint" if you overshoot the landing ramp on the first jump you will not get the achievement as you car will hit the ground and take almost unnoticeable damage (its really just paint damage but I guess it counts). I had to do it a couple times to get the landing right. I had to pop into replay mode on every landing to see if I took damage, its that hard to notice. Not sure how you did it in the first go. It took alot of finesse on my part to get it right.

Just thought it was easy to overlook as most people like myself will just gun it over the jump.

Thanks again.

It it possible that you make a mini-menu within the YouTube descriptions?

I want something where people can look for a specific mission within a video, without having to watch 16 minutes of battersea.

All you would have to do is write the name of the mission, and then a time next to it (like 3:27) so people could find their way through the video.

Great guide, Maka. It's been very helpful

The only one I'm not 100% certain of is this one (bolded part)

This is the long haul single player achievement. You must complete every event in every season as well as all the World Tour events to unlock this achievement. When you complete all the events within a competition, the triangle will turn a golden colour to signify completion. This challenge does not involve DC Challenges, and the triangle will turn gold without the completion of the DC Challenge in that competition. Once you turn all 4 season and 6 world tour pyramids gold, the achievement will unlock.
My triangles (360 version) do not turn gold until I complete the DC challenge with at least a bronze. I skipped pretty much every challenge since I'd rather have a red-hot fire poker shoved up my urethra than do the gymkhana crap, so I had several triangles containing ALL 1st place finishes except the challenge. I went back to one of them and medaled in the challenge...wah-lah...triangle turned gold.

However, as far as the achievement goes, I have NOT finished every world tour event yet, so maybe the achievement will still pop...gold triangles or not

Edit: I did complete the Gymkhana events that were listed as regular season events...only skipped the challenges.

Double Edit: Ok, you are correct in saying that the challenges are NOT necessary for the achievement. I just finished it and got the achievement without my triangles being gold. (you do have to medal the challenge...bronze or better... to turn them gold though)

Just quickly to earn the pace setter achievement you do not need to use the Raid Class, might want to take that out of the achievement guide.

Yeah, thanks I saw that yesterday as well. Was going to update actually very soon.

Try to figure out why they used pro tour instead of jam session though.

Updated the achievement to be much more clear. Everything should make sense to everyone now, I hope.

I would like if one more person confirmed this.

Added 4 more videos for Platinum DC Challenges
Updated with boosting method for superstar
Updated and completed various sections

The remaining 8 platinum challenges I can hopefully get done by Sunday night, but no promises, as I've been quite busy. Will link my favourite battersea videos tomorrow as well.
