Asphalt 8: Airborne, BXR Bailey Blade GT1 Enduro Double Down First try 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 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.




First 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:
  • Saved point at challenge..., failed at challenge 13.
  • Total: 0 point.
* I upgraded it enough for ace race--1586-ish. I played fully upgraded car in challenge 13 (not ace race) but failed it.


Spent tokens:
  • Total: 0 token.


Car status:
  • BXR Bailey Blade GT1 upgrade status: R1586 (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.

* Previous EDD--Aston Martin One-77, I spent so many boosters so I will try not to use this time. That means I have to upgrade a lot.



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 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.


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.

Challenge 1.
  • Mazda 6, Test Site: Omega, Elimination, Finish third
  • Alfa Romeo MiTo GTA, Oceanview Derby, Finish race, recommended car rank 789

I wasn't familiar with D class car in Oceanview Derby so I crashed to the structure two times. So I thought I failed it.

And I realised that requirement is 'Finish race'.

But as you can see, player must compete with 1540 rank of BXR Bailey Blade GT1. So it will be big problem if it requires 'Finish first'.


Challenge 2.
  • Ford Focus RS, The Great Wall, Finish race, recommended car rank 1012
  • BXR Bailey Blade GT1, Wall Ascent, Elimination, Finish third
* I'd like to practice the drive BXR Bailey but this is elite car because tune up will take so much time--two hours. So I should save it for the ace race.

* Same. Player must compete with 1540 rank of BXR Bailey Blade GT1.


Challenge 3. Ace race. Barcelona, recommended car rank 1540, AI finished at 1:19:464

screenshot of Asphalt8 Bailey EDD 1st tryout, challenge 3 Barcelona

I just started this EDD. But as you can see, this elite car started with degraded.
So Gameloft must tried it before sell to the people!?


screenshot of Asphalt8 Bailey EDD 1st tryout, challenge 3 degraded elite car

I upgraded it to 1586-ish (max 2212, pro 3333). This ace race's recommended rank is 1540 only. So I just tried with this red-stats car.

Here you can see how I played with this car:

It was doable but problem is horrible handling and this random skid made me crash to the wall--luckily I've made it though.
It was very dangerous to play with degraded car--I felt that car was very and very ready to go skid.
You will see in the video that I didn't try to do the wobbling--car was very unstable because of degraded 'tune up'--handling stat is very low.


Here is the screenshot of EDD main screen. You can see the 'Time left: 10d 23h' with two EDD invitation ticket. Which will prove I just started this EDD.

This is the result:

Challenge 4.
  • Ford Focus RS, Barcelona Reverse, Finish third
  • Mazda 6, Ipanema Showdown, Finish race, recommended car rank 690

screenshot of Asphalt8 Bailey EDD 1st tryout, challenge 4 result

* Player must compete with 1540 rank of BXR Bailey Blade GT1.
Main goal is finish third so it was okay. But this 1540 rank of BXR Bailey Blade GT1 car can make a lot of trouble. For example, this car will hit you to make crash to the wall so can't use shortcut or flawless which make player to fail the challenge.


Challenge 5.
  • Ford Focus RS, Barcelona Reverse, Finish third
  • Alfa Romeo MiTo GTA, Alps Reverse, Finish third, recommended car rank 818

* Player must compete with two of 1540 rank of BXR Bailey Blade GT1.


Challenge 6. Ace race. London, recommended car rank 1548, AI finished at 1:21:048

Challenge 9.
  • Challenge 7's Ford Focus RS, recommended car rank 1070
  • Nissan GT-R (R35), Highland View, Infected, Finish first

Challenge 10. Ace race. Oceanview Derby, recommended car rank 1560, AI finished at 1:08:079
screenshot of Asphalt8 Bailey EDD 1st tryout, challenge 10 Oceanview Derby

screenshot of Asphalt8 Bailey EDD 1st tryout, challenge 10 recommended rank
screenshot of Asphalt8 Bailey EDD 1st tryout, challenge 10 completed

* I upgraded it enough for ace race--1586-ish. So I didn't save the point, I choose 'double'.


Challenge 11.
  • Alfa Romeo MiTo GTA, Venice, Infected, Finish first
  • Ford Focus RS, San Diego Harbor Reverse, Finish first, recommended car rank 1117
screenshot of Asphalt8 Bailey EDD 1st tryout, challenge 11 select one to play
* Wow. This is beginning of(first tryout, challenge 11) EDD but traffics on the road.
** Aston Martin One-77 EDD challenge, traffic on the roads on challenge 18 at third tryout. It was after three ace race so technically same.


Challenge 12.
  • Mazda 6, Sky Drop, Elimination, Finish first, recommended car rank 760
  • Challenge 11's Alfa Romeo MiTo GTA
screenshot of Asphalt8 Bailey EDD 1st tryout, challenge 12 select one to play

screenshot of Asphalt8 Bailey EDD 1st tryout, challenge 12 result
* Traffics on the road. And this rank 1540 BXR Bailey Blade GT1 chasing me like crazy. It was very dangerous to play with 1030 rank of Mazda 6--recommended rank is only 760.
So I don't think you should play with recommended car rank--maybe triple booster will do.


Challenge 13.
  • Challenge 11's Alfa Romeo MiTo GTA, recommended car rank 918
  • BXR Bailey Blade GT1, Nevada Reverse, Unplugged, Finish first, recommended car rank 918
screenshot of Asphalt8 Bailey EDD 1st tryout, challenge 13 select one to play
* I didn't have other choice because if I play this Bailey, I have to wait for long--two hours, because of 'Tune up'.

screenshot of Asphalt8 Bailey EDD 1st tryout, challenge 13 failed

I failed it because of this crazy fast 1540 rank of BXR Bailey Blade GT1.


This EDD will be crazy hard. Because player had to compete with 1540 rank of BXR Bailey Blade GT1 with their D, C class car--not even 1000 rank. And this rubbish elite car's 'tune up' thing make things very complicated--for example, player forgot to 'tune up', sometimes Gameloft's Asphalt 8 server will remove user's 'tune up'.
I played it only 3 times. But this elite car already degraded. I will explain the next--second tryout.

Here--first tryout, I played it challenge 6 and 10. So two times.
And second tryout, after played it in challenge 3. It already degraded.



P.S. Here is the video that how I failed:

I probably picked up the infection in wrong timing but this 1540 rank of Bailey only chased me--other AI cars were all behind. If I go slow down to crash other car for get more time to not explode, this 1540 rank of Bailey will go in front. So it isn't easy to pick up the infection in right timing.




You can continue read other EDD tryout:
Will write it soon.
