Asphalt 8 20th 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, twentieth 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 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 43,310 points.
  • Failed at challenge 8.


Spent tokens: 0 token.
* I will not spend any token this time. Because I spent a lot in previous R&D, EDD about more than 1,300 tokens for each.


Car status:
  • BXR Bailey Blade GT1 upgrade status: R1602 (max 2222, pro 3333, elite tune up -4, +4, -4, +4)
  • 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: I've got free acceleration upgrade from multiplayer--win streak. R1142 (max 4424, pro 4353) from R1054 (max 3324, pro 4353)
  • Mitsubishi Eclipse (reward): R1344(max 3423, max 4353)
  • I don't own the car - upgrade status:
    • Holden Coupe 60: R1248 (max 2212, pro 2121)
    • Mazzanti Evantra: R1546 (max 2212, pro 2022)



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'.
See the details from here or check fourth tryout.


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.
 - 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.



Previous--17th tryout, I've got the Mitsubishi Eclipse reward.

And here is the remain rewards:

I was very irritated by this one crazy fast 1540 rank Bailey. Because most of time, at the beginning I hit the car(almost all the AI) to make clear the road.
But it was useless.

Because this crazy fast 1540 rank Bailey probably can go more fast. This car took all the slowest route but it can still finish first.

So I can't even catch to hit the car.


This is not so great B elite car because high rank with poor performance. So it can't do well in TLE(Time-Limited Event) and it can't do well in MP(MultiPlayer).
So I felt that pointless to get the car.
I already wasting so many credits (2 millions+) and pro cards.
At least, I didn't use any token and booster(just 2 to 4) though.

So I don't feel like continue playing.

But FI-V8 engine cards were extremely rare for me so that's the reason I will keep playing.





Many challenges were quite similar with previous tryouts so I will not include screenshot.



Challenge 1.
  • Holden Coupe 60, London, Elimination, Finish first
  • Ford Focus RS, Barcelona, Elimination, Finish first, recommended rank 1176

Challenge 2.
  • Alfa Romeo MiTo GTA, The Dragon's Den, Finish first
  • Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR-X, Nevada, Finish first, recommended rank 1404

Challenge 3. Ace race. Sector 8, recommended rank 1576, AI finished at 1:08:871

With 1602 (max 2222, pro 3333, elite tune up -4, +4, -4, +4) rank BXR Bailey Blade GT1, finished at 1:07:980.


Challenge 4.
  • Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR-X, Sector 8 Reverse, Finish first
  • Mazzanti Evantra, Dubai, Unplugged, Finish first, recommended rank 1583

Challenge 5.
  • Mazda 6, Oceanview Derby, Finish first, recommended rank 1109
  • Ford Focus RS, The Great Wall, Flawless, Finish first

Challenge 6. Ace race. French Guiana, recommended rank 1597, AI finished at 1:10:884

With 1602 (max 2222, pro 3333, elite tune up -4, +4, -4, +4) rank BXR Bailey Blade GT1, finished at 1:09:300.


Challenge 7.
  • Ford Focus RS, Dubai Reverse, Finish first, recommended rank 1266
  • Alfa Romeo MiTo GTA, Classified, Gate Drift: 8,000 points

Challenge 8.
  • BXR Bailey Blade GT1, Monaco, Elimination, Finish first, recommended rank 1621
  • Mazzanti Evantra, Venice, Unplugged, Finish first

Bailey is elite car so if I use it often, I have to wait 2 hours for tuning. So I try to only use it in ace race. But I'd like to try it so I choose it.


I didn't expect this challenge come with traffics. Because I've seen traffics after challenge 11.
So I hit the traffics.
Bailey's handling wasn't great and this traffics make things really hard. And my rank is quite low to compete with AI--it's only 19 rank lower but AI's looked like two times faster than Bailey.
* Traffics on the road--elimination.
