Achievement Guide & Road Map (Complete)

Road Map:

Estimated Achievement Difficulty: 5/10
Approximate Time: 60+ Hours
Minimum Number of Playthroughs: 2 Seasons and 1 NAB Cup
Offine: 37 (985)
Online: 1 (15)
Does Difficulty Effect Achievements: Yes
Cheats: None
Do Cheats Disable Achievments: No
Glitched Achievements: 2. A few teams freeze the end of a game during the season. (Sydney, Richmond, Carlton, Geelong) And Attacking Pressure has been reported to drop without a goal even being kicked.

Authorís Notes: This is my first guide. Please be gentle.

The truth is, this game doesnít really require too much skill. Itís about knowing when to press the right buttons and a fair amount of time and patients.

Step One: Practice Makes Perfect
Iíll recommend by starting off in Single Match on Rookie difficulty, so that you can get the hang of the game. Feel free to pick any team you want, it wonít really matter to be honest. Once you feel that you know what you are doing, put the difficulty up to Professional (Iíll suggest doing that once you get Itís A Drubbing and Storming Home). At First, it will bee more of a challenge, but it will get you prepared for the season achievements. You should be aiming to get Winners (Are Grinners) to start off with, if you canít do this on Rookie, then donít step up the difficulty just yet. Once you start winning by a fair amount, then switch over to professional. While practicing, thereís a high chance youíll earn a few other achievements like Poster, First Use and The Beautiful Game. Thereís also the chance youíll get Slippery When Met and Road Trip if you set up the games with the correct settings.

Step Two: Professional Season
Start up a season on Professional, with your choice of quarter length, injury level and team. I chose Fremantle (tallest ruckman in the league) and 3 minute quarters. The Professionals and Amateurís Hour are stackable, so thereís no need to play it through on Amateur (unless you want to). Just remember, DO NOT SIMULATE. Doing that will void the purpose of the season. It will also void Set For September.

Step Three: Legendary
Once youíve completed The Professionals, its time for the real challenge. Legendary. This achievement has you play with Extreme injuries on and 20 minutes a quarter, so it does take a while. Just do what ever you did on professional and more. This is the longest achievement in the game other than Lifetime Lagger, but it will earn you a very nice 85 gamerscore. So it is well worth it in the end. Once again, No Simming. After the legendary season, switch over to the NAB Cup, where you have to play on the exact same settings as you did before.

Step Four: Online and Mop Up
With the Legendary season over, you can pretty much relax now. Jump online and complete 5 simple games and youíll have completed the online portion of the game. Then its just a case of getting any leftover achievements. Australian Made and Chairman Of The Board are worth leaving until near the end, as they donít exactly provide a benefit for the initial seasons. Lifetime Lagger is, as I said before, the time consuming achievement in the game, but it is by no means hard at all. By playing through the other steps of this game, youíll have gotten yourself quite a few goals already.

Awards Showcase Achievement Guide - Bronze   Road Map - Bronze
Total Awards: 2 (more» ...)

Leather Poisoning 15
Gather 40 or more disposals with a single player.

Create a single match with any teams, but set the quarter length to 20 minutes. During the game, decide upon which player you’re going to have get 40 disposals, and make sure you get the ball to them a lot. Be sure to check your progress at the end of each quarter. This is also achievable during the Legend season

No 'I' in Team 15
Play a co-operative match with at least 2 players on the same team.

With a friend on the same console, play through a full game, on any time setting. After the game, this will be yours.

Downtown 15
Kick a goal from within the centre square.

This one can be a little tricky. You’ll have to get an amazing kicker to mark the ball in the centre square. Quite often you’ll have to wait for it to bounce through the goals when it’s close to them.
When I did it, I was using Matthew Pavlich from Fremantle. It’ll recommend not trying to torpedo the ball, as it’s fairly inaccurate.

Australian Made 15
Create a player in the player creator.

Go into the Footy Factory and select Create a Player. You don’t have to modify anything, unless you want to. But if you’re just after a quick achievement, keep pressing until the player is finished, then exit back to the menu.

Kicked a Bag 15
Kick 5 or more goals in a match with a single player.

This one is very achievable in any amount of time. Just make sure the same player gets goals. If you aim to get the goals with the Full Forward of the team, it’ll be easier again.

Fruity 15
Kick a goal from the boundary with a banana.

When you’re kicking for goal from the boundary line, line up the goal, then hold + until you’ve got the power you want. The ball will curve around and hopefully get you a goal.

Talk to the Hand 15
Break 2 tackles in a row with fends.

This one does a little bit of skill. You have to press and the exact time you are being tackled, in order to break it, and then do the same thing again. You have to be using the same player for the second one that you were using for the first.

Shut 'em Down 15
Perform 10 effective tackles in a match.

For this one, make sure you are using the player that makes the tackle (using to switch players). If you get a free kick from the tackle, then that counts as an effective tackle. (Holding the Ball = Good, Too High and In the Back = Bad)
Use the opposition as a second controller to make it a bit easier to get.
It’s also easiest to get after the opposition has been told to play on. If you are using two controllers, run too far with the ball by sprinting with , giving them a free kick. Then, once the umpire calls for play on, run forward and tackle them.

Online Player 15
Complete 5 online games.

This one is easy in the sense that you don’t have to win the games; you just have to play out the entire game. Do that 5 times and this is all yours.

Dancing with Your Sister 15
Play out a drawn game.

This one can either be accidental, or you can ensure you get it. If you wish to get it on purpose, just make sure that in the final quarter, the scores are relatively to each other, and within the last few minutes, the scores are equal.

Slippery When Met 15
Win a match in the wet.

In Single Match, once you’ve set up the teams, go to Match Settings and select a stadium other than Etihad Stadium, and put the weather to raining. Then simply win the game.

Storming Home 15
Storm home to win without the opposition scoring a goal in the final quarter.

During any game, when you reach the fourth quarter, stop your opponent from scoring a goal in the final quarter. This is most easily done on the easiest difficulty, with 3 minute quarters.

50 Metre Bomb 15
Kick a goal from beyond the 50 metre arc.

It can be easier to get this one when your player is on the run, but if you have a set shot, the mark can not be taken within the 50 metre arc. To get this from a set shot, get the mark from a few metres out side the 50 and kick away.

Poster 15
Hit a goal post and score a behind.

It’s more than likely that you’ll get this one by accident, from wherever you are on the ground. It won’t take you long to get this one.

First Use 15
Perform 5 taps directly to a receiver in a match.

When in the ruck, direct the ball to one of your own players. It’s easiest to get when you have player standing directly behind you. Just flick the towards then once the controller vibrates. Rinse and Repeat.

Even Spread 15
Win a game with 9 or more individual goal kickers.

When going for this one, it’s best to move your field around once one player has kicked a goal. Switching the most recent goal kicking with players from the back line and the bench will greatly help with this one. I’ll also recommend doing it in a longer game, for Example, when going for Leather Poisoning. An easier difficulty also helps.

Chairman of the Board 15
Create a full team of 40 or more players in the Footy Factory.

This one will take you a little bit of time. All you have to do is go to the footy factory, select team editor, and create a team. Then, go to the Player creation menu. With every player you make, when you are naming them, at the bottom there will be a ‘Team’ option. Put the new player into your custom team and then continue to create players until you have 40.

Attacking Pressure 15
Kick 3 goals as a direct result of free kicks from tackles in a match.

This one has been known to drop without goals being kicked (Out on the Full has been known to trigger it). The best way to do it is in your forward line, seeing as you’ll be able to do directly for goal. Using a second controller that has no one using it will also help.

Road Trip 15
Win a game with an AFL team against an interstate AFL team at their home ground.

This can be done throughout Season mode, if you are good at winning games, but to do it in Single Match, put your controller as the Away side. Then select any team and make sure they are not from the same State as the team you wish to use. Then, select their home ground and win the match.
E.G. Richmond vs. Fremantle at the MCG.

The Professionals 30
Win a Toyota AFL 2011 Premiership Season on Professional, no simulating.

This one is stackable with Amateur’s Hour. Create a season, using a team of your choice (Be warned, Richmond vs. Geelong and Carlton vs. Sydney have been known to freeze later in the season, so I chose Fremantle)
Remember not to Simulate any game at all that your team is involved in. This includes selecting the other team and having the AI play for you.

Legendary 85
Win a Toyota AFL 2011 Premiership Season on Legend, 20 min quarters, extreme injuries, no simulating.

This in the second most time consuming achievement in the game. As it says, play on Legend with 20 minute quarters and extreme injuries turned on. Once again, no simulating, or you end up wasting a lot of time.
A few tips with this, Spoil! A Lot! The AI will always beat you in the air when it comes to a contest. Only go for the mark when you are a few metres ahead of the other player. If there is a contest, + to spoil, then run onto the ball. If you have enough room to kick the ball, do so, otherwise I recommend handballing and tacking until you have the room to kick.
You’ll only need 15+ wins from the season to make it into the finals, so there’s no need to exit the game if you are losing. When you do reach the finals however, if you’re going to lose, Exit and play again.

Amateurs' Hour 15
Win a Toyota AFL 2011 Premiership Season on Amateur, no simulating.

See ‘The Professionals’ for details

The Beautiful Game 30
Kick the ball off the ground to score a goal.

When the ball is on the ground in front of your goals, hold . Your player will soccer the ball off the ground and hopefully earn you 6 points. Fairly straight forward.

Nabbed It 80
Win the Pre-Season Competition on Legend in real time with extreme injuries.

Start a NAB Cup on the same settings you used to get Legendary, and again, no Simming. To get this done just that little bit quicker, pick either Sydney or Gold Coast, seeing as they get paired with Greater Western Sydney and it gets automatically Simmed. This doesn't cancel out the achievement either, which is very handy.
See ‘Legendary’ for a few tips on winning

Hard Nut 30
Perform 20 heavy bumps.

To get this the easy way, create a single match and set up the opposition to be another controller. During the match, when the opponent gets the ball, run towards them and use the to bump them. I’m fairly sure knocking the player to the ground counts as a heavy bump. The other bonus with this achievement is that it doesn’t all have to be done in a single game, so you don’t have to stress if you don’t get it the first time you try to.

By Hand 30
Win a match with more handballs than kicks.

To get this, simple handball it around a lot. I’ll suggest getting a few points ahead at first, then start handballing like crazy (using ). This is easiest on a low difficulty, but will also be achievable on Legendary if you play the way I have suggested (See ‘Legendary’ for those tips)

Spoil Sport 15
Perform 50 spoils.

This one will accumulate across all your games. Just Press + whenever there is a marking contest and you’ll get it soon enough. You’ll more than likely get this throughout the Professional season.

Torpedoes Away! 15
Kick a goal with a torpedo from 50 metres.

When on the run towards your goal, or from a set shot, hold + to kick a torpedo. (If you are near the boundary, it will do a banana kick instead, so make sure you’re near the centre)
Also make sure you kick from a few metres outside the fifty, as I described in ’50 Metre Bomb’

Lifetime Lagger 80
Kick 5000 goals.

This one will take the most time achieve, and will more than likely be the last one you’ll get. Just play through many games and kick goals like crazy. After all other achievements have popped, set the game to a low difficulty and play 20 minute quarters. The amount of goals you’ll get in those games will get you well on your way. You’ll also have a lot of goals already, from both season and the NAB Cup play throughs.

Hot Streak 30
Win 5 matches in a row during a season on Professional difficulty or above.

This one is easiest to get in your professional season, provide you keep winning games. Shouldn’t be too hard if you are good at the game.

End-to-End 30
From a kick-in, score a goal without the opposition touching the ball.

This one can be a little bit of a pain, but it fairly simple on a low difficulty. When kicking the ball in from an oppositions goals (your backline) Use + to kick directly to a player on your team. Continue doing this until you get to your forward line and kick a goal.

Winners (are Grinners) 15
Win a match.

Fairly straight forward. Win a match. It’ll be one of the first achievements you get, but can take a few games when you’re still getting used to the game.

Playing Tall 30
Win a ruck contest with the shortest player on your team.

I’ll suggest going for this when you have created a team of your own. Make a player, and make his position ‘Ruck’ then make his height the shortest possible. Then, start a Single match, using a second controller as the opposition. At the first ruck contest, simply flick the to win the tap out.

Chas 30
In Season mode, a member of the player controlled team wins the Brownlow medal.

Easily achievable if your player gets a lot of disposals and goals, especially if they are named man of the match. Just make sure you get the ball to one of your players a lot during each of your games.

Set for September 30
Finish on top of the ladder in a Toyota AFL 2011 Premiership Season, no simulating.

Basically, win as many games as you can, preferably, all of them. Remember not to simulate any of the games, and you’ll be sure to get this.

First Class Century 80
Have a player in your team kick more than 100 goals in a season.

It’s best to make sure your Full Forward gets a lot of the goals throughout the season. I played as Richmond in one of my seasons and had Jack Riewoldt get his hundred around Round 16 (before my game started freezing when I played Geelong)
The longer the quarter length you play with means more goals.

Got the Wood on 'em 30
Defeat every team at least once in a home and away season.

Fairly straight forward, as it says. Just keep watch on the teams you lose to however. If you do lose to them early in the season, and play them again later on, make sure you win that second game.

It's a Drubbing 30
Win a match by over 50 points.

Easily achievable on a low difficulty, even in 3 minute quarters. If you have only just started playing the game and are learning the basics, earning this achievement will let you know that you pretty much know what you are doing. If you can win by 50 points a few times on either Professional or Legend difficulties, you’re more than ready for the season achievements.
