Sports Champions Trophy Guide
Written by: JenkemAddict88
43 total trophies: 1 platinum, 3 gold, 9 silver, 30 bronze (1 hidden)
Required hrs: 30 to 40
REQUIRES 2 MOVE CONTROLLERS FOR PLAT!!!!
ADVISED PATH TO PLATINUM….
1. The first thing you want to get out of the way is the owned all trophy, which requires you to win a match with every character in every game. Start the game out with a pad and pen, and beat the bronze cup in every event, with every player once. After winning with a different person, write it down, exit the game and choose a different character. Doing this first will make sure you don't have to spend lots of time doing this later in harder cups.
2. Do the challenge rounds after the silver cup, as some of them (here's lookin at you volleyball, bocce and disc golf challenges….) are quite difficult.
Before I get into the guide, here are some tips for all of the games….
Disc Golf – The distance your disc flies is based on how hard the controller was “tossed.” It will fly in the direction that the sensor ball at the top of the controller is tilted. This makes it nothing like throwing a Frisbee. To make it go straight and far, I found the most effective method was a “punch” at the screen. Also, when putting, don't try to lightly “baby” it into the basket. Instead throw it hard and low and “run it” at the basket.
Gladiator duel – this one took me a minute to get good at. The best advice I can give is to stand sideways, with your “shield shoulder” in front. Imagine how you would stand if you were actually holding that kind of equipment. The most effective strike is a shield bash, followed by a quick, hard strike to the back of the head. This will be your “bread and butter” move, and was the only way I could even land an effective strike in gold cup.
Archery – Not a whole lot of advice here other than it sucks with 2 controllers, and is much more difficult if you elect to play as such
Volleyball – its not very difficult at all until gold cup. When you get there you will need to create some room for yourself, as you have to really sprawl out to get some of the dives…. Also if your having trouble beating gold cup, try to unlock Titus (hes the unlock able character in gladiator duel) he is A LOT taller than the other characters, making blocking a lot easier.
Bocce – on the harder levels, throw the pallino as close as possible to you. It makes it a lot easier than chunking it as far as you can.
Table Tennis – learn how to serve fast into the corner. When you serve turn sideways where your hand holding the controller is closest to the camera and move to the far right or left of the table (right if you're a righty, left if you're a lefty). Throw the ball up and flick your wrist over (towards the t.v.) it should go much faster and have spin on it. Table tennis shouldn't give you a lot of problems (once you get the hang of it) until the end of the gold cup.
NOW (finally…..) ON TO THE TROPHIES!!
I Can Throw a Disc – win a disc golf match in any mode.
Ace! – get a hole in one in disc golf. If this trophy is giving you problems, play all 18 holes on bronze difficulty. Most all of the holes are ace-able. The easiest one is hole one.
My Aim is True – Score 5000 or better in Disc Golf Challenge mode. This is a pain in the ass, and that's putting it nicely. All the tips I can give is try to keep your multiplier up, and don't give up because you have done poorly on the first two, as A LOT more points are possible in round three. Also if you have 2 controllers you can have a friend help you.( This is what I had to do…)
FORE! – Toss 20 discs close enough to an opponent in Disc Gold to make them get out of the way in Champions Cup. Just purposely aim at them, and throw so they move out of the way. Be sure you finish the round, or the “fore” shots wont count.
I Hit Someone – Win a gladiator duel match in any mode
King of the Ring – Win 30 matches in Gladiator Duel by knocking your opponent out of the ring in Champions Cup. This is Easiest done in bronze cup. Shield bash them until they are close to the ledge and knock them out of the ring.
Man or Machine – Score 15000 or better in gladiator duel challenge mode. This one is fairly easy. Swing hard at the lit body part, and take FULL SWINGS. His will keep you from accidentally hitting any other part of the body, and resetting your multiplier. Also the harder you swing, the more points that are awarded.
Super Parry! – successfully parry (block using JUST your weapon) a ‘Super Strike' attempt against all 10 opponents in Gladiator Duel playing in Champions Cup. Best done in Silver Cup. Attack the opponents shield so they get super strikes quicker, and try to hit their weapon when they go into super strike mode. This one is frustrating but keep trying, you'll get it eventually.
I Can Aim! – win a round of archery in any mode.
Hat Trick – Score 3 bull's-eyes in a row on floating Archery targets. Best done in Bronze cup, on the first level with floating targets. (I Think it's the 4th one) wait til they stop moving, take your time and get 3 in a row. Bulls-eyes are worth 120.
Sharpshooter- Get a score of 15,000 or better in any Archery Challenge Mode. This is super easy, just get as many head shots in a row as you can in the three rounds,and you should get this one on your first try.
The Splits – Split three arrows in a row in any Archery mode. Do this on the first guy in bronze cup, as there is no time limit. If your really having trouble, try resting your arm on the back of a chair so it doesn't move as much.
Over the Net – Win a Beach Volleyball match in any mode.
Shutout – Win a match in Beach Volleyball without allowing your opponent to score a single point (any mode, any number of sets, and a minimum of 11 points per set). Go to free play and choose bronze cup, press square to go to the options and change the number of points per set to 11.
Beach King – Get a score of 20,000 or better in Beach Volleyball Challenge Mode. This one sucks. I found it VERY hard to aim without 2 controllers. Do underhand serves for the high targets and overhead serves for the lower ones. The aiming is will take a while to get used to but stick with it and this trophy will be yours.
High Five, Low Five – Win a multiplayer cooperative game in Beach Volleyball. This requires 2 controllers ,go to multiplayer and win a game on the same team.
I Have Heard Of Bocce – Win a Bocce match in any mode.
Sweep!- Sweep a frame by scoring a point on every ball your threw in one round of Bocce. Best done on bronze cup. Get all 4 of your balls closer than any of your opponents for this trophy.
Bombs Away – Get a score of 15,000 or better in Bocce Challenge Mode. This one is hard. Take your time and try to hit the ball in the center of the circle. When you do, your multiplier will go up. It will reset when you totally miss a circle, so take your time and don't miss. Try to score at least half of the points in the first round, as it is BY FAR the easiest.
Follow the bouncing ball – Win a Table Tennis match in any mode.
Rally Tally – Get a rally of at least 25 in a Table Tennis match (AND win the point) in any mode. This will be acquired before beating gold cup. Trust me.
Clownin on robots – Get a score of 15,000 or better in Table Tennis Challenge Mode. This one is pretty easy. Again, just work on building your multiplier, and this one should be easy.
Speedy Edge Spinster – Hit 10 blazing fast spinning shots that nick off the edge of the table playing Table Tennis in Champions Cup. Again, this will be unlocked before beating gold cup. Trust me.
Look ma, Two Hands! – Play at 1 match of Gladator Duel, Archery, and Beach Volleyball in Champion's Cup or Free Play using two motion controllers.
Social Gamer – Play a multiplayer game in every event.
I Can Do Better – Replay a previously won Champions Cup match (any event) and improve your score. Just wait until the first time you earn only one star. Replay that event until you get 2 stars or better
Bronzed Arms – Win the Bronze Cup in every event.
A Star is born – earn 10 stars in champions cup
Shining Star – Earn 150 stars in Champions Cup.
All Too Easy – Shoot a score of -10 or better over the full 18 hole course in Disc Golf. Do this on Bronze, once you feel you have the hang of it. At first this will seem difficult, but play all 18 holes a few times to learn the course, and things wont be nearly as difficult. If your having hard troubles with this, you will want to stick it out because it is a cakewalk compared to the last person on Gold cup.
Super Striker – Complete 50 ‘Super Strikes' in Gladiator Duel playing in Champions Cup. You should get this before beating gold cup. If not then cleanup what you need in freeplay
Bulls Eye! – Get 100 bull's-eyes in Archery playing in Champions Cup. You can get this easily playing the first guy again and again .there is no time limit and the target does not move, so line the aim assist up and you should have 7 bullseyes each game.
Defensive Specialist – Make 50 diving digs and 100 blocks in Beach Volleyball playing in Champions Cup. You will earn this by the end of gold cup. Trust me.
Outta My Way – Hit 30 opponent balls out of the way to claim the inside position (aka ‘Super Shots') in Champions Cup. You should get this before the end of Gold cup. If not go on Bronze cup and focus on just knocking the crap out of your opponents balls
Great Balls of Fire! – Win 100 rallies in Table Tennis with Smash Winners in Champions Cup. You will get this before beating Gold Cup. Just hit the ball HARD
Silver Cups -Win the Silver Cup in every event.
Shooting Star – Earn 300 stars in Champions Cup.
Total Shutout! – Win a Match in every event without losing a hole (Disc Golf), round (Gladiator Duel, Archery), or point (Beach Volleyball, Bocce, Table Tennis) in Champions Cup. You should earn this while playing everything on Bronze cup, as bronze cup is super easy. If you want to make sure you get it just play the first person in all of the events and don't let them score any points.
Stay Gold! – Win the Gold Cup in every event.
Owned All – Win a match with all 10 characters, in every event, playing any mode. If you followed my advice at the top then this wont be a problem. If not get a pad and pen and start playing thru bronze cup again
Living Legend – Earn 600 stars in Champions Cup. Be sure to get every star possible on all bronze cups, there are 840 stars total so play to your strengths and try what you feel you are best at. Also, when you beat people on Champions cup (the one unlocked after you beat gold) you almost always get 3 stars because they give you a multiplier of 2 to your points. This will Probably be the last trophy you earn. Good Luck!!
High Roller – earn a career score of 500,000. Nigel Would be Proud!……..You will earn this by the time you get 600 stars. Trust me….for the last time haha
