Asphalt 8: Airborne, Android, Enduro Double Down, BXR Bailey Blade GT1, 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 BXR Bailey Blade GT1 EDD challenge list in Windows:


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.

Android - Bailey, 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 rank, I selected that challenge.
So I can figure out how difficult it became with this recommended rank and ghost racer's finish time.


Collected points:
  • Saved point at challenge 14 and 19. Failed at challenge 21.
  • Total: 7,000 points.
* I shouldn't save the point at challenge 19 which make total of 7,000 points. Because after collecting 7,000 points, it will be difficult. After collecting 20,000 points will be more difficult though.
It was better to save it more at easy level.



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: R1580 (max 2121, pro 3333, elite tune up 0, 0, 0, 0)
  • fully maxed and proed it
    • Alfa Romeo MiTo GTA
    • Ford Focus RS
    • Nissan GT-R (R35)
    • Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR-X
  • I don't own the car - upgrade status:
    • Mazda 6 upgrade status: R940 (max 1201 pro 4455)
      - I will buy the car.
    • Mitsubishi Eclipse: R1171 (max 1101, pro 5243)
      -- I can get this car, if I collected 40,000 points. So I upgraded it.
    • Holden Coupe 60: R1164 (max 0000, pro 2122)
    • Mazzanti Evantra: R1526 (max 0000, pro 2223)


Mitsubishi Eclipse is too hard to resist. So I'm playing it in Android, too.
I don't like do farming. So I don't have enough credits to play this EDD.
But luckily, I've got one million credits from Asphalt 8 Third-Anniversary Cup's reward of Maserati MC12 which I already own the car so I've got a million credit instead.
So I have 1.9 million credits to upgrade the cars--upgrade cheapest like 2222 or 3333 but 1.9 millions were all gone.

And I have 13+ of Super Racer Kit Box and bunch of random boxes from TLE(Time-Limited Event) or daily task. I couldn't open it because no space left.
So I will dumping pro cards.



I upgraded Bailey quite early. Because that's my maximum(maybe bit more like max 2222 pro 3333) 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'.
See the details from here or check fourth tryout.

*** In Android, next--second tryout, I failed at challenge 7. Mazda 6, Mount Teide.
That challenge's recommended rank is 853. And I have 940 (max 1201 pro 4455) Mazda 6. But I wasn't able to keep up with 1540 rank Bailey.



But many times, I failed on not ace race. So problem will be other cars--Mazda 6, Mitsubishi Eclipse, Holden Coupe 60, Mazzanti Evantra.
 - 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.

 - I don't have Mazda 6(I have it in Windows) but I will buy it. So I don't mind upgrading it--but not enough credits. And I have bunch of i4 engine cards.
I failed at challenge 21 with this car and next--second tryout again. So I probably need more upgrade


Of course, if I'd like win the car, I don't have choice, I had to upgrade it.
I am not thinking about win the Bailey in Android. So I will just collect points. Main goal is Mitsubishi Eclipse and then maybe 60,000 points for 250 tokens and 15 cards of EDD box. If I couldn't collect 60,000 points, that would be fine, too.



* I've played this before (especially ace race) in Windows. So with 1580 rank of Bailey, not much a problem in ace race.

Next ace race will be tough with my 1580 Bailey. And I am not sure what kind of not ace race will be. So I didn't go with 'double'.
Saved 5,200 points.

  • Challenge 16's Mazda 6, recommended rank 853

I'm not sure but I haven't seen this 15 knockdowns for long time. I tried this 15 knockdowns in Weber Faster One EDD. It was extremely hard. I failed so many times. Very rarely, I did it.
And in Aston Martin One-77 EDD, most of knockdown challenges are 'knock down the most cars' and I failed quite rarely.

And Bailey EDD in Windows, I haven't seen this one yet, I think. I mean most of knock down challenges are 'knock down the most cars'.

I know it will be hard challenge so I choose Mazda 6.
So if play it well, it maybe possible with the recommended rank. But always careful with those suicide AI and traffics.

Challenge 18.
  • Holden Coupe 60, Iceland Reverse, Elimination, Finish first
  • Challenge 17's BXR Bailey Blade GT1
screenshot of Asphalt8 Android Bailey EDD 1st tryout, challenge 17 select
* Traffics on the road. And it was Iceland. So player must careful with those huge trucks on the road.

Challenge 19. Ace race. French Guiana, recommended rank 1597, AI finished at 1:10:884

After challenge 14 ace race, I saved point so I tried without booster.
With 1580 (max 2121, pro 3333, elite tune up 0, 0, 0, 0) rank BXR Bailey Blade GT1, finished at 1:09:630.

So I saved 1,800 points here. It was a mistake. Because I thought that it wasn't enough to collect 7,000 which will make challenge more difficult.

In next tryout, challenge 6 London ace race became challenge 3. And challenge 10 Oceanview Derby ace race became challenge 6.


Challenge 20.
  • Mazda 6, Nevada, Flawless, Finish first
  • Mitsubishi Eclipse, Great Wall Reverse, Finish first, recommended rank 1167

Challenge 21.

  • Mazda 6, Buddha's Teachings, Finish first, recommended rank 1109
  • BXR Bailey Blade GT1, Dubai, Finish first


* Traffics on the road.

I upgraded it only 940 (max 1201 pro 4455). And I felt that it was very tough to keep up with AI.
And I hit the traffic so that makes impossible to win.
But even if I didn't make mistake, I don't think it is possible with that rank. Because AI cars are not slow for 940 rank.

Will write it.
