My friend has only played Dynasty and he got the achievement, so it's not a glitch. I got it by simming 15 minute quarters on Heisman with Oklahoma/San Jose State. I got Unstoppable as well. I didn't feel like playing

We don't know what you actually did based on your post, so how can we know if you did anything wrong?

In other words, does being a Team Legend mean you earned all the levels of trust, or can you earn team legend status without earning all the coaches trust?

First of all you can not change the conference of BYU for this achievement. Doing this normal would be almost impossible since Independents can not be added into the AQ. However there is an easy way to do this. Create the following custom schedule:
1. Oklahoma
2. Alabama
3. Oregon
4. LSU
5. Texas A&M
6. Mississippi State
7. TCU
8. Notre Dame
9. Open
10. Florida State
11. Open
12. Auburn
13. Stanford
14. FCS Team
Using this schedule will get you strength of schedule advantage and eliminate some of the top teams. I was ranked #1 by week 10 using this method.
It might also be recommended that you pad the QB, HB and top two WR's stats to 99 so you are guaranteed the win each week (since you are playing top teams). You can do that within the Dynasty under the Team Management menu. If you raise the stats, you will not have to play each week, only the Championship (and you have to play the Championship; you can't supersim or sim it). Just sim week to week to see if you won, and if you did, save and sim another week.

This is one of the hardest achievements for the game. You can use 2 controllers to make it a little easier. What I did in last year's game was edit one teams player's stats all the way to zero except for the QB which I kept the passing stats up around 40. Then made one of my saftey's stats to max. Then selected that player with player lock (), then used the second controller to pass in the direction until I intercepted the ball. Because the other team stats are so low, you should beable to out run the other team and break tackles. Also can be done with the In Your Crosshairs achievement.
I didn't even have to edit anyone's stats. I used two controllers. I was Oklahoma and played against San Jose State. I was on San Jose's 10 or 15 yard line (so I wouldn't have to run as far). I picked a San Jose offensive pass play where there was only one receiver () on the left side. Then I picked an Oklahoma defensive play where the CB dropped back 10 yards (didn't stay in the flats). I hot routed the San Jose receiver () straight out, then took control of my CB. I moved him back around 10 yards and clicked to player lock. I also hit and to spotlight the receiver. I hiked the ball and waited about a half a second. Then I threw it to and my CB intercepted it since he was in the right area (In Your Crosshairs). Since their defense sucks, I had no problem running it back for a TD. Unlocked. It was a little awkward using two controllers at once, but it seemed almost easier than last year.

While on defense, hold and select a reciever to spotlight him. Then just cover that reciever and hope that the QB passes to him so you can intercept it. Can also be done with two controllers and while going for the Lock and Load achievement.
It's , not .

Start a new dynasty and choose a mediocre team. Schedule as many of the top ranked teams. Sim through to the end of the season and you should have a losing record and have less than 30% security. Play through the off season and you should be able to keep your job.

Thanks to Toy Story 3 for this method.

Start off by choosing Texas and become the head coach. Go to roster and edit everyone over 80 overall. Lower the first 5 options to 0 and then save. Continue that until all players over 80 overall change to 40 overall. Now go to your depth chart and make everyone that is now 40 overall a starting position. If you get to a position with no one that is 40 overall, just skip that position. It shouldn't matter if some positions have decent overall players. The positions that are most important to have starters at 40 overall are QB, HB, and WR. Now simulate to the start of the season. After that simulate to conference championship week. You most likely will be 0-12 at the end of the conference championship week. You will not qualify for any bowls, so just simulate to the end of the season. The achievement will unlock after the season ends.
So I suppose this is the best/quickest was to get this achievement? Im only in need of 3 more to finish this game off so thank you so much (:

That way works but honestly I just started a dynasty with Texas did not change anything and they went 5-7 and after the season I believe I had about 8% job security or so. Both should work good luck on 1000

I am doing one more proofread on this now and then I will submit it. Hopefully it will be approved and stickied soon after.

I wouldn't submit it yet. The rules state that the game has to be out a month before being considered to be submitted. Besides, even if you submit it, the guide team won't even look at it until the month is up. Plus, the game has only been out a little over a week. Someone might come along in the 3rd week and have a new solution that tops yours and you may want to add it to the guide. Give it some time. Nothing says it has to be submitted as soon as possible. As I said, they won't even look at it, and if you make changes here, you'll just have to resubmit the whole thing. Waste of time. I know; I've had to resubmit guides before.

There are some better suggestions than what's in your guide but you haven't used a lot of them, especially in topic-specific threads. I don't care, because if people are like me (probably not), they don't look at the published guide anyway as the be-all-end-all of guides; they look at the forum guide and look at all the posts as well. When I look at a guide, I take maybe half of it from the actual guide and for the other half there are usually suggestions posted that are better than what's in the guide (especially for Ironman Performance and Dual Threat Coach).

Plus, the more detailed a guide, the better. Don't get me wrong, your guide is okay, but can be a lot better if you just took suggestions from this thread and the other threads that are topic-specific and made it more detailed.

Some like Tire Fire Offense, you can have a second controller run out of their own endzone giving you a safety, then turn the play clock off and sit out the game on 1 minute quarters, doing a QB kneel when you have to. "Play some good defense" as you say? You don't have to do that. At all. That is only if the player has a second controller, though. I personally have four, but some may not even have a second.

And My Two Cents, it's been established that you can't get the achievement by joining someone else's league. You have to create one for yourself.

EDIT - Maybe not, but someone in another newly created thread said that saving the dynasty is key to unlocking the achievement. Thanks, Churchbells xD.

For Living Legend, you have 'See "Dual Threat Coach"'. Yet for that achievement, you don't state in your solution to create a coach, nor do you say to use an existing one. It's an inconsistency.

I would just write a solution for Living Legend by itself, saying "Create a coach for Oklahoma and set his alma mater to Oklahoma (unlocking Dream Job). You don't have to adjust any positions or change your schedule, but you may want to adjust the sliders in your favor in the House Rules. Then, just sim each week and if you win the game, save and sim another week. You have to play and win the National Championship to get Hometown Hero (provided that you have stayed at least #1 or #2 in the rankings), and when the season ends, you should be an A+ rating, unlocking the Living Legend achievement." See, that's it. You can also put for Dream Job and Hometown Hero to 'See "Living Legend"'. It actually tells you how to unlock those two achievements instead of your solution for Dual Threat Coach, where they don't. You don't even say in that solution to use a created coach or set his alma mater to the school he is coaching, yet you say you could unlock those two.

Let's Do It Again, you don't state that it might take multiple seasons in your dynasty if you have a contract that's longer than one year. Some people might not understand that if you have a 3 year contract, it takes three dynasty seasons to get this achievement. It's just a fact of life that people don't read everything.

Leaders of Legend, you can't move a team into the conference and get the achievement. You have to use a team already in that conference. Same for Head of the PAC and Independence Day. And speaking of Independence Day, you don't have to play any games except the BCS game. You can just sim the season, provided you've adjusted the QB, HB and top two WR's to 99's. Then you will definitely win if you use the schedule that you say to use. With their stats at normal, you would have to play every single game and struggle to win, and some people want to get the achievements as quick as possible, hence adjusting the stats and simming. And you might want to reiterate that you can't supersim or sim the Championship games for these achievements (with the achievement descriptions saying Play and Win).

Earn My Trust, there are a different amount of levels for each position. I did the achievement using my Notre Dame RE. and I think there were only 8 or 9. Definitely not 11. You might want to change that. And you also might want to add that when you have enough points to reach the top level, you have to advance to the next week for the achievement to unlock.

High School Champ, may want to state that you have to actually play the Championship game, can't supersim or sim. I know the achievement says "Play and Win", and you wrote "Win", but some people misread descriptions.

Unstoppable and Balanced Attack can be achieved by playing a 15 minute quarter game on Heisman and supersimming the entire thing after the kickoff. Just make sure that you play against a bad team, like San Jose State. A lot easier. You could probably get Happy 20th EA Sports and Take a Stab Downfield too, but I already had those two when I supersimmed. Not sure if they would also unlock.

Lock and Load, you press the , not the , correct?

Take a Stab Downfield, any suggestions on how to gain 50 yards? Playing a team with a bad defense? Playing with a good team? Two controllers? Anything is better than "Simply complete a pass for 50+ yard pass." Some people might have trouble doing that.

Again, the more information, the better. This is just what I saw in the past 10 minutes. Just some suggestions, and if you don't use them, they're still here for everyone else to read.

Submitting it now, especially for a AAA title, is a bit premature. Read the links below.

Also, look at the two guides on PS3T.org to see what they say in their guides.

There's your problem. "a little simming". You can't supersim or sim AT ALL in the championship game. That is why the achievement description says, "Play and win".

You can sim the season, not the championship game...

"And you might want to reiterate that you can't supersim or sim the Championship games for these achievements (with the achievement descriptions saying Play and Win)."

Independence Day 40 [/B]
Play and win the National Championship game with BYU in the first year of Dynasty

First of all you can not change the conference of BYU for this achievement. Doing this normal would be almost impossible since Independents can not be added into the AQ. However there is an easy way to do this. Create the following custom schedule:
1. Oklahoma
2. Alabama
3. Oregon
4. LSU
5. Texas A&M
6. Mississippi State
7. TCU
8. Notre Dame
9. Open
10. Florida State
11. Open
12. Auburn
13. Stanford
14. FCS Team
Using this schedule will get you strength of schedule advantage and eliminate some of the top teams. Now turn all sliders in your favor, turn off offsides, and set quarters to one minute. Once you get up by 3 scores and to the half, supersim it and you should have no problem getting the win. I was ranked #1 by week 10 using this method.


I have tried this but for some reason I cannot get the exact same schedule as you posted here I can't pick Florida State for week 10 everything else I can pick though so not sure what I am doing wrong. Also I did make a schedule since I could not pick those teams and went undefeated and won the National Championship so not sure what I did wrong there.

Any input is appreciated thanks

Are you saying you got the achievement? If so, what's the problem? Why do you care if you couldn't add a team to the schedule after you won the Championship game?

That schedule is a suggestion. You don't need to follow it 100%. Why did you even think that you did?

I just don't understand why people can't read the achievement descriptions correctly. When it says "Play and win", as it does for Independence Day, Head of the PAC, Leaders of Legend and High School Champ, what does that mean? It means that you have to PLAY and WIN the game. Not SIM. Not SUPERSIM. Play the damn game from start to finish.

It would be helpful if that information was put in the guide, but as the guide isn't being updated anymore, I guess people will have to search the forums for that information...

For Tire Fire Offense, I was playing against a friend, and he was going for the Lock & Load achievement (which he did end up getting). He had 62 total yards the entire game and no offensive touchdowns, and he did not get Tire Fire Offense.

We played another quick game. At the kickoff (I received), I ran out of the back of my endzone giving him a safety. We turned the play clock off and let time expire. He got the achievement.

Has anyone else gotten this achievement by scoring a defensive touchdown? If not, the guide is wrong (again). It needs to be changed.

Did you not read my response to your post in the "Independence Day" thread? Is there really a need to post the same question in three threads? Read it there, it's pointless to post it here again.

I'm not trying to be a dick, but you really need to go back through your guide and correct a bunch of mistakes. For "In Your Crosshairs", you can't (or shouldn't) write "hope". You need a clear method for getting this achievement.

In other words, you need to make your guide idiot proof (not that anyone is an idiot, just how someone explained it to me when I wrote my first guide). That way, everyone can read it and get the achievement they are going for. Most of the mistakes are simple and obvious, so it shouldn't take very long to correct them.

Thank you. I was thinking of writing my own guide (or pasting the one that I've written in Word with my solutions instead of the one posted here). I think I might just do that...

For my guides, I put so much detail in them, they are indeed idiot-proof. I put unnecessary information in them just to explain something, and people are grateful for that.

There's two guides on PST3.org, who says we can't have two guides here? At least I would take suggestions and update it past a week of posting it...

Not for nothing, it's a good guide. ViperxSniper. It can be soooo much better, though. Guides are written by one person, but it's the community that makes it a great guide. No one person has that much knowledge of a particular game to make a guide and not take suggestions and solutions from other people. It's arrogant to think that. You have updated a few things here and there, but there are many solutions out there that are better than what's posted in the guide. And a guide is supposed to be written with getting the achievements as easy as possible, and your guide simply doesn't do that on some. Sorry, but it's the truth.

I know this is your first retail guide, and judging by your gamerscore, you've read more than one guide on this site. At least read the other NCAA and Madden guides to see what kind of information the writers put in there. That's all we ask.

Again, it's a good guide, but no where near complete. Not trying to be a dick here, just being honest and (trying to be) helpful.

Hey everyone. Sorry about not updating the achievement guide in the last few weeks. I have been really busy with stuff. I am currently working on it now and should have everything updated by the end of the day.

Updated the guide with the suggestions that have been made. Thanks everyone for your comments/suggestions.

Leaders of Legend, you can't move a team into the conference and get the achievement. You have to use a team already in that conference. Same for Head of the PAC and Independence Day. And speaking of Independence Day, you don't have to play any games except the BCS game. You can just sim the season, provided you've adjusted the QB, HB and top two WR's to 99's. Then you will definitely win if you use the schedule that you say to use. With their stats at normal, you would have to play every single game and struggle to win, and some people want to get the achievements as quick as possible, hence adjusting the stats and simming. And you might want to reiterate that you can't supersim or sim the Championship games for these achievements (with the achievement descriptions saying Play and Win).
The ways that I have listed them are the exact ways that I unlocked them. You can move the teams around for the Leaders of Legend and Head of the PAC (unless they have released a patch that changed this). As for the Independence Day achievement, yes you could max out the stats and sim it. However I would think that it would take longer to do and if you even lose one game in the season with BYU, you will more then likely not go to the NC unless you make sure that the other teams lose enough games to not make it. The way I listed probably would take just about the same time, maybe a little more but is a guarenteed way of getting the achievement.

Not SUPERSIM. Play the damn game from start to finish.

It would be helpful if that information was put in the guide, but as the guide isn't being updated anymore, I guess people will have to search the forums for that information...
I actually did have that mention under the notes I had under the road map. I just changed it to put them in bold letters to stress that point out.

For "MY TWO CENTS" when I go to access Online Dynasty it states that my profile is not granted permission. No explanation as to what that means, I've put in my Online pass and played some games online, (I really suck by the way) so I'm confused on how to proceed.

Another question, for the custom conferences, it says I can do it after a dynasty is created but I can't find the tab or menu to change conferences around. I did I before I created the dynasty, so I would like to know where to go.

Thanks.

Did you activate the online pass under the profile you are using? If you activated on a different profile, you will not be able to use it on different profile even if its on the same system.

For the custom conferences, when you first start a new dynasty, you have there is some options that you have before actually starting the dynasty, custom conferences is at the bottom of this list.

Yes, I am a Gold Member with only the one account.

I done it twice now with moving teams into a conference before starting a Dynasty. Nothing popped. But you description says after you've created created it, so I'm confused. Where is even the option to edit the name?

Final question: I'm new to College Football period, so I may sound stupid in hindsight, but is the Independent a conference? I moved teams into there, for some reason...

Not sure what is going on with the Online Dynasty tab. My best advice would be to contact EA about the problem

As for the conferences, I meant it to say to do it before actually starting your dynasty. I fixed the guide to clarify that. As for editing the team name, you have to press a button to edit them at the conference screen (it specifies which one at the bottom of the screen). I don't think the Independent count as a conference so probably try doing it with a different conference (SEC, PAC-12, Big 10, etc..)

That was probably the problem, the damn Independent Conference. I'll try another conference tonight, thanks for your patience and help.
