Introduction:

Welcome to the MotoGP 18 Trophy Guide!
A new year and a new instalment from Milestone S.r.l; this year follows the 2018 season and is very similar to the previous MotoGP games. Gameplay and Graphics have been improved with this years game, so hopefully you’ll notice the improvements made.
This year has another very easy trophy list for you to look forward too with the majority of trophies coming from simply playing.

Roadmap:

Step 1: 20 Online Races
As is the norm with these older titles, I highly suggest that you start off with the online mode to get it out of the way as quickly as possible. This years’ mode is slightly different to the previous as entering the Public Race will automatically put you into a lobby with no option to chose to start a new one. Public Matches are decided by votes of race distances and tracks. 
It is therefore highly recommended that you find a boosting partner before heading into this game, so that you can complete the 20 races in a Private Match and select the quickest races manually.

If you are struggling to find a boosting partner feel free to head over to our Discord to find a very helpful group of gamers!

You’ll be earning these trophies:
Bronze Welcome Online
Bronze Online Novice
Bronze Online Amateur
Bronze Online Expert
Bronze Online Veteran

Step 2: Time Attack Mode
You’ll need to complete 10 valid Time Attack Laps. Pick your favourite track and simply glide around without touching too many kerbs and going off track to quickly complete this mode.

During this step you’ll earn these trophies:
Bronze Lap after lap
Bronze On a hunt for the perfect lap

Step 3: Quick Race
You can do this as part of Step 4, however I would suggest to take the time to do a single “Pro Physics” race to earn this one miscellaneous trophy. You’ll also earn the relevant track related trophy whilst doing this.

During this step you’ll earn these trophies:
Silver Simulation lover

Step 4: Career Mode
The majority of the trophies will be earned automatically during this step. You will need to keep in mind that during one of the 4 seasons you need to complete, that you enable practice sessions & qualifying. Personally I did this during my Moto2 season, as the bikes were slightly faster and it gave me room to do any more during the MotoGP season if I need too. You can change the race setting for individual races before starting them.

You also need to resist the urge to move up in class when you are given the option too after 6 & 13 races, as this will void your run for the relevant current Championship.
Only move up a class at the end of the season.

During this step you’ll earn all the remaining trophies, including:
40-platinum Platinum!

Tips and Strategies:

During career mode the relevant Championship Trophies will pop when it is mathematically confirmed that you are the Champion; you are free to retire from some races too speed time up, but do not skip too many otherwise you may have to play some more races for Gold MotoGP™ Legend.

All trophies can be earned with the AI set to “Very Easy” within the “Race Options” and they can be adjusted prior to starting each and every race. Disabling “Penalties” also allows you to cut as many corners as you like during your career without any issues.
Feel free to also use the “Rewind” function as much as you need during offline racing by pressing the button.

Online Veteran
Complete 20 online races

For this trophy you will need to complete 20 Online Races, either through Public or Private Races.
It is highly suggested that you find yourself a boosting partner for this one and play in Private Races, as the Online Public Races have a weird matching mechanism as outlined in the Roadmap.

Once you’ve got your boosting partner head into Private Race and select Germanys’ Sachsenring, as this track has the fastest lap times of all the tracks in the MotoGP calendar, set the distance to 3 laps and cruise around with your buddy.
You need to finish the races in order for them to count, so make sure both of you finish before the timer runs out at the end of the race if you are both going for the trophies.

On a hunt for the perfect lap
Complete 10 valid laps in Time Attack mode

Head into “Quick Modes”, “Time Attack” and set up with your favourite track & bike settings. There is no time limit here, so you can just take your time and glide around.
Not every kerb will invalidate a lap when you touch it, but it’s best to stay away from them at all times. Crashing will also invalidate a lap, so make sure you are being careful.

I would suggest that you do complete any invalidated lap, as if you pause and restart it may not count the previous lap.

Pole Position!
Obtain a Pole Position in Grand Prix, Championship or Career mode

Pole Specialist
Obtain 10 Pole Positions in Grand Prix, Championship or Career mode

You will need to enable “Qualifying & Race” in the Race Options prior to starting the weekend and go on to achieve Pole Position by getting the fastest lap during the time limit.
It is suggested that you enable “Full Weekend” to begin with during your Moto2™ Career, as you combine this with Silver A proven tester. Moto2™ also has a slightly quicker qualifying format than MotoGP™, as there is only 1 session to deal with.

A proven tester upscale-245262160018212
Successfully pass 10 different tests during Free Practice in Career mode

You need to enable “Full Weekend” in order to participate in Free Practice Development Tests. You’ll only need to do this for 4 races if you are able to complete all the tests available.

Once you are in Free Practice you are given 3 different tests at each race and you need to complete them all in the first session. My advice would be to complete them all within the first session and then “Skip” to Qualifying when the second sessions starts.

  • Speed Trap Test – You will need to pass through 4-5 gates above a certain speed, at certain parts of the track. These will all need to be done within the same lap for it to count.
  • Braking Test – You will need to brake within the 4-5 markers, at certain parts of the track. These will all need to be done within the same lap for it to count.
  • Trajectory Test – You will be tested at 4-5 different parts of the track between two gate to see if you are able to stay within the correct lines around the corners. These will all need to be done within the same lap for it to count.

Team objectives are introduced during your first season within Moto3™ and are a mix of Qualifying & Race Objectives, plus beating your Teammates & your Championship position.
You will find your objectives on the right of Main Career Mode page prior to entering the “Next Weekend’s” race.

Personally I did not worry about the Qualifying positions at all, except for my Moto2™ season where I was aiming for Silver A proven tester & Bronze Pole Specialist and I was able to obtain the related trophies without any problems; Bronze Great job, man! popped after winning the first 5 races in Moto3™ without Qualifying being enabled, with the other trophies popping after the relevant amount of races.

Win a MotoGP™ race with PRO physics and Tyre Wear activated

Head into “Quick Mode”, “Grand Prix” and select your favourite class and track. You’ll need to change the setting of the race as per below to enable the Tyre Wear, plus also adjust your “Riding Aids” to “PRO”. This is not too difficult if you have also set the computer AI to Very Easy and disable penalties.
You’ll also need to confirm your settings with the button once you have set them.

PRO Physics will automatically map you front brake to & your rear brake to , so remember to apply them both in equal measures during your race to avoid over braking with either. 

Remember that you have rewinds available by pressing the  button and you can always add qualifying if you feel you need to be at the front of the grid.
