Long Hard Road Achievement
Long Hard Road60
Complete career mode on hard or above manager difficulty in AFL Live 2.
Playing through the Career mode may seem like it will take a long time, but using the simulation option, it will be sped up greatly. The years start at 2013 and end with 2027. (this might change with future updates)
It’s a good idea to pay close attention to your first 3 years, so that you can win 3 premierships in a row. It might also be a good idea to play through one entire season to earn the Brownlow and Coleman medals. Have a rookie in Full Forward so that you get the Rising Star achievement and also, win all your games for the entire season, so that you don’t have to do that again.
At the end of each season, you can renew player contracts, trade with other clubs and pick up rookie players from the draft. When it comes to the contracts, it’s best to renew all of your best players contracts. You can renew all players if you wish to. Sadly, older players will retire and you won’t be able to convince them otherwise. If you want to keep them around for a long time, offer them a 5 year contract when they are 31 years of age and they won’t retire until the end of that contract. To get the best players from other teams, in ‘Staff’ increase your Scout to rank 10. This will help you get info on which players wish to leave their club. It will take some getting used to, but once you’ve figured out the trading, you’ll be able to get the greatest players in the league, giving you a team to be feared! In the national draft, you get to pick from any delisted players or rookies for that year. To get the best ones, look at the players Rating and Potential, if either of those are 85+, recruit them!
Once all needed Career achievements are done, in the ‘Manager Settings’ tab, switch both ‘Gameplay’ and ‘Finance’ difficulties to hard and play out the rest of the career. This will get you both achievements for completing Career mode.
