Asphalt 8 3rd tryout of BXR Bailey Blade GT1 Enduro Double Down challenge list

I'm writing this for
  • trying to figure out the difficulty increase,
  • this can apply any EDD (Enduro Double Down) challenge because game style is quite same as previous challenge--Weber Faster One and Aston Martin One-77.
  • So you can do it well on next EDD challenge.

Based on previous EDD and other information from Asphalt 8 Wikia page
--like Enduro Double Down Challenges and Enduro Double Down/BXR Bailey Blade GT1 page.

Difficulty will increase after player collected 7,000 points and one more time after collected 20,000 points.

So if player did the double until 24 ace race in BXR Bailey Blade GT1 EDD, after collected 7,000 points player should double until 19 ace race.
And once again, if player did the double until 19 ace race, after collected 20,000 points player should double until 14 ace race. 10 ace race.
So player should prepare for the difficulty changes.
Or player should upgrade enough to do the desire ace race.

You can check out my previous tryout of BXR Bailey Blade GT1:

Bailey, third EDD(Enduro Double Down) invitation.

I will write down like involved car, map, requirement, ghost racer(AI car)'s finish time. And then if there has recommended car rank, I selected that challenge.
So I can figure out how difficult it became with this recommended car rank and ghost racer's finish time.

Collected points:
  • Previously collected 6,010 points.
  • Saved point at challenge 14. Failed at challenge 15.
  • Total: 11,210 points.

Spent tokens: 0 token.
* I'm thinking about only go for Mitsubishi Eclipse reward(40,000 points) or bit more for pro kit box. So I will not spend any token this time. Because I spent a lot in previous R&D, EDD about more than 1,300 tokens.

Car status:
  • BXR Bailey Blade GT1 upgrade status: R1595 (max 2222 pro 3333) from R1593 (max 2212, pro 3333)
  • fully maxed and proed it
    • Alfa Romeo MiTo GTA
    • Ford Focus RS
    • Nissan GT-R (R35)
    • Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR-X
  • Mazda 6 upgrade status: R1030 (max 3324, pro 4343)
  • I don't own the car - upgrade status:
    • Mitsubishi Eclipse: R1267 (max 3313, pro 4243)
      -- I can get this car, if I collected 40,000 points. So I upgraded it.
    • Holden Coupe 60: none.
    • Mazzanti Evantra: none.

I upgraded Bailey quite early. Because that's my maximum upgrade for Bailey.

  • Early stage--I mean before collecting 20,000 points, challenges and ace races are quite easy. So I thought upgrade a lot at early stage means I can collect more points at early and faster.
    • But as you can see my challenge list, this 1540 Bailey AI ruined this plan.
  • Previous EDD, I spent so many boosters and it was expensive--worth 365,00 credits and 800 tokens. This time, I'm trying to not to use it so I had to upgrade it.
  • Mitsubishi Eclipse reward or pro box means I had to upgrade it. And based on my previous experience, that upgrade is kind of possible to do the at least third ace race (after collected 20,000 points) with my skill and probably without booster.
  • I am trying to spend zero token this time. That means I need enough upgrade to cover my little mistake.
  • EDD in B class car and more longer days to collect points, so I thought if I upgrade a lot, I can do kind of relax playing. But it looks like wrong to expect this kind of thing from Gameloft.
    I'm not saying this is very hard. But it was very and very tricky--because of one crazy fast 1540 Bailey AI (and this elite tune up thing, too). Many times, this car chase me like crazy.

Ace race isn't the problem
-- based on previous EDD and I failed 6 times on ace race but I failed 13 times on not ace race.

Weber Faster One is S class car. And Aston Martin One-77 is A class car. And this BXR Bailey Blade GT1 is B class car.
So I don't think it will be difficult like previous EDD---nope, not really. It's crazier (trickier) than previous EDD.

But it will be very difficult in very different way. This elite car system will degrade car so you have to tune up time to time. And this elite car system always ruined whole play time because sometimes 'tune up' just completely gone or sometimes it will refill only half of 'tune up bar'. And D or C class car like Mazda 6, Alfa Romeo MiTo GTA and Ford Focus RS had to compete with car rank of 1540 BXR Bailey Blade GT1. So one mistake or if player didn't fully upgraded means impossible to win.

* My guess was right. I failed two times on infected mode because of that 1540 BXR Bailey. You can read and see from Asphalt 8 crazy infected challenge in BXR Bailey Blade GT1 Enduro Double Down.
* Again my guess was right. I did apply the tune up. About 30 minutes later, I checked this 'tune up' thing. But four hours later, it was completely gone. So I had to apply 'tune up' again. That means I had to play next day.
Meanwhile, 2 out of 3 invitation at the time and one invitation was delivered within 2+ hours. So while doing sleep or work, my EDD invitation was fully charged for very and very long time. So I probably wasted one EDD invitation for waiting and again, waiting for complete the 'tune up'.

But many times, I failed on not ace race. So problem will be other cars--Mazda 6, Mitsubishi Eclipse, Holden Coupe 60, Mazzanti Evantra.
 - I have Mazda 6 but I didn't upgrade it properly because I upgraded it with remains. So no free class D upgrade or i4 engine card to further upgrade.
 - Mitsubishi Eclipse, I can get this car, if I collected 40,000 points, so I upgraded it.
 - Holden Coupe 60, Mazzanti Evantra: I don't have these cars and I don't think I will buy it in the future. So I don't like waste credits and pro cards.

Of course, if I'd like win the car, I don't have choice, I had to upgrade it.

But I haven't decide whether I should win the BXR Bailey Blade GT1 or just collect 40,000 points for Mitsubishi Eclipse. Or bit more (60,000 points) for the EDD box which will probably contain FI-V8(Forced-Induction V8) engine card.

Decision wasn't made it yet. So I probably will not upgrade much. But at least, I will try to get Mitsubishi Eclipse. And probably more for the EDD box because FI-V8 is extremely rare(especially for me).

* It was similar challenge list from previous(first and second) tryout so I will not include screenshot here.

* With 1595 (max 2222, pro 3333, elite tune up for -4, +2, 0, +2) rank BXR Bailey Blade GT1, finished at 0:59:499.

My point is 6,010 (before the difficulty changes) and it was quite doable with my rank in Sector 8--next ace race. So I went with double.

Challenge 11.
  • Mitsubishi Eclipse, The Mirage, Finish first
  • Alfa Romeo MiTo GTA, Venice, Infected, Finish first, recommended car rank
* Traffics on the infected!
This time I made it. It was more like lucky because this 1540 rank of Bailey almost catch me but it just exploded. Not one time. Two times.

Challenge 12.
  • Mazda 6, Sky Drop, Elimination, Finish first
  • Ford Focus RS, San Diego Harbor Reverse, Finish first, recommended car rank 1117
* Traffics on the road

Challenge 13.
  • Challenge 12's Mazda 6, recommended car rank 760
  • Challenge 11's Mitsubishi Eclipse
* 1540 Bailey chased me like crazy so I had to hit two times but 1540 Bailey kept chase me.

Challenge 14. Ace race. Sector 8, recommended car rank 1576, AI finished at 1:08:871
screenshot of Asphalt8 Bailey EDD 3rd tryout, challenge 14 completed
* With 1595 (max 2222, pro 3333, elite tune up for -4, +2, 0, +2) rank BXR Bailey Blade GT1, finished at 1:08:145.
Less than 1 second faster. So I thought it will be very tough. But next tryout(I made it like 1:06:xxx), I did it better. So I think I was little bit familiar with this Bailey's handling. With this rank it was quite doable.

I saved 5,200 points here.
* My collected point is 11,210. So next tryout(or after this), it will be difficult. Next tryout, you will see this challenge 14 Sector 8 became challenge 10. And other challenges, too.

Challenge 15.
  • Alfa Romeo MiTo GTA, Highland View, Finish first, recommended car rank 989
  • Ford Focus RS, The Rose of the Desert, Elimination, Finish first
screenshot of Asphalt8 Bailey EDD 3rd tryout, challenge 15 result-failed
* Crashed about two times and again one mistake. So I failed it. But luckily I saved point before this challenge.

You can continue read other EDD tryout:
Will write it soon.
  • Bailey, twelfth EDD invitation challenge list
  • Bailey, thirteenth EDD invitation challenge list

You can check out my previous Aston Martin One-77 EDD challenge list in Windows:
- After second EDD invitation challenge list, I included my collected points, spent tokens and car upgrade status. Fourth to eighth EDD tryout have some screenshots of challenge.

You don't have to read whole challenge list but first, second(or third) and sixth(and fifth)--which I collected more than 20,000 points should be enough.
