Full list of accolades (89 in total)
Note: Most of these do not stack. If you win a game of 9 Ball leaving 8 balls on the table, you won't get the accolade for leaving 6 or 7 balls on the table

Pot x Number of balls in a row:
3 in a row
5 in a row
7 in a row
15 in a row

The first three will probably come with normal playthrough, but last one should happen during a Perfect Potter challenge (continuous streak of potting balls)

- - - - -

Complete Tutorial
Pretty obvious, this should be one of the first you get. If for some reason you miss it, just go to Players and select the Tutorial Opponent

- - - - -

Bank Shots:
Pot a ball using a bank shot
Win a game using a bank shot

A bank shot is when you hit a ball into a cushion and it bounces off and into a pocket. See this link for help - http://bit.ly/1y290G5

- - - - -

Double Shots:
Pot a ball using a double shot
Win a game using a double shot

I'm not entirely sure what a double shot is, and I only have two of the first accolades, but I believe it might be when the cue hits two balls and both of them get potted. If anyone can clarify that would be great.

- - - - -

Plant Shots:
Pot a ball using a plant shot
Pot a ball using a double plant shot

A plant shot is when the cue ball hits "Ball A", then "Ball A" hits "Ball B" into a pocket, like a chain reaction. A double is the same with a third ball: Cue Ball --> Ball A --> Ball B --> Ball C --> Pocket. This should come easily during playthrough, especially if two or three balls are inline.

- - - - -

Off the Break:
Pot 1 ball off the break
Pot 2 balls off the break
Pot 3 or more balls off the break

These are purely luck, but consists of X balls going into pockets on the initial shot. 8 Ball and the other types with 15 balls will probably be easier than 9 Ball, but it can happen in any game

- - - - -

Win a game where all pots use screw
Screw is when the balls rolls back after making contact with another ball. Hold cn_B and pull back on the Left Thumbstick before your shot to add the proper spin

- - - - -

Win a game with no fouls
This will happen over time, just don't scratch / hit the wrong ball and you should get this (fairly) easily

- - - - -

Strength Shots:
Win a game with every shot over 70% power
Win a game with every shot under 30% power

For the first, just pull back all the way before your shots. Under 30, just pull back slightly and push forward. The second will be harder with cross table shots so try and stay close with the balls available, even if you don't pot them.

- - - - -

Specific Pockets:
Pot 5 balls in corner pockets consecutively
Win a game potting only into corner pockets
Pot 2 balls in side pockets consecutively
Pot 3 balls in side pockets consecutively
Win a game potting only into side pockets

Just how they sounds, only pot balls in either the 4 corner pockets during a game or the two side pockets during a game. The Win with only X pocket shots will be easier to come by if your opponent knocks in the 8 ball prematurely or if you have a 9 ball shot lined up

- - - - -

Snookers:
Snooker your opponent
Snooker your opponent 20 times in total
Snooker your opponent 50 times in total
Snooker your opponent 100 times in total

Get out of a snooker
Get out of 20 snookers
Get out of 50 snookers
Get out of 10 snookers

A snooker is when a shot is blocked by a ball the player cannot hit legally (A striped ball if you are solids, any ball higher than the current one in 9 Ball). Snooker your opponent by getting them stuck behind one of your balls in 8 Ball or behind any higher number ball in a game of 9 Ball.

Get out of a snooker by bouncing off the rails to make contact with any ball you can make contact with legally

You can check how many you have by how many times you are awarded the first accolade of each


- - - - -

Pot 2 or more balls in one shot
Any time two or more balls go into pockets on your shot this will be awarded. Not entirely sure if this is triggered on a break

- - - - -

Distance Shots:
Pot a ball further than 240cm from the cue ball
Pot a ball further than 200cm from the cue ball
Pot a ball further than 160cm from the cue ball

Can't confirm where these distances line since every shot will have a different radius, but these would be cross table shots. These are awarded if the ball you make contact is that far away, not if the pocket is that far away from the ball you make contact with

- - - - -

Consecutive Wins:
Win 3 consecutive games
Win 5 consecutive games
Win 7 consecutive games

Win 3 consecutive games without fouling
Win 5 consecutive games without fouling
Win 7 consecutive games without fouling

These are easier against lower skilled opponents, but can be boosted if you have a friend that plays (especially if they want to pot the 8 ball after the break for you. Isn't that sweet of them!)

- - - - -

Games Played:
Play a game
Play 20 games
Play 50 games
Play 100 games
Play 1000 games

Just play any game, even pot the 8 ball if you want to pass quickly or play a game of Perfect Pocket and don't pot anything after the break. Again, you can see how many you have by how many times you have been award the "Play a Game" accolade

- - - - -

Knock Balls off the table:
Knock a ball of the table
Knock 10 balls off the table
Knock 25 balls off the table

These won't pop in the practice mode, but during a game if you are close to a rail, just add some screw to a ball and tilt the cue all the way up so the cue ball will hop off the table. Also, you can do a full power shot on a ball that is close to a pocket which will sometimes knock it off.

- - - - -

Ending Streaks:
End an opponents 3-game win streak
End an opponents 5-game win streak
End an opponents 7-game win streak

These will probably come during harder opponent games during career, but lose X games in a row before you win one to unlock these. Purposely losing to a lower ranked opponent multiple times, followed by a win will be easier if you find these harder to get

- - - - -

Clear the table:
Clear the table in 150 seconds
Clear the table in 130 seconds
Clear the table in 110 seconds
Clear the table in 90 seconds
Clear the table in 70 seconds

Sink all the balls in the allotted time. I haven't completed any of these yet, but going off of the other accolades, I do not believe they stack

- - - - -

Leaving Opponents Balls:
Win a game leaving 3 of your opponents balls
Win a game leaving 4 of your opponents balls
Win a game leaving 5 of your opponents balls
Win a game leaving 6 of your opponents balls
Win a game leaving 7 of your opponents balls

During a game of 8 Ball, pot all your balls and the 8 ball, while your opponents has X balls left. This can easily be boosted with a friend, or if you can consistently snooker your opponent if you don't have a good shot

- - - - -

Comeback to Win
Come back to win from 3 balls behind
Come back to win from 4 balls behind
Come back to win from 5 balls behind
Come back to win from 6 balls behind
Come back to win from 7 balls behind

In a game of 8 Ball, let your opponent knock in X number of balls then pot all your balls after that to get the win. Easily boosted

- - - - -

Win by opponent illegally potting the black
Mostly luck as opponents won't typically try to pot a ball if another is blocking the pocket, but this will pop if they pocket the 8 ball before they can legally do so. Again, easily boosted

- - - - -

Leaving Balls in 9 Ball
Win a game leaving 8 balls on the table
Win a game leaving 6 or 7 balls on the table
Win a game leaving 4 or 5 balls on the table
Win a game leaving 2 or 3 balls on the table

In a game of 9 Ball, win the game by pocketing the 9 ball with X balls still on the table. This can happen on the break, but if not, knock the current ball you are on into the 9 ball to pot it

- - - - -

Winning matches
Win a 3-frame match without losing a round
Win a 5-frame match without losing a round
Win a 7-frame match without losing a round

X-frame Matches are the last round in a tournament of career. These are best of matches, so for a 3-frame you have to win 2-0, 5 is 3-0 and 7 is 4-0

- - - - -

Win a Game
Don't lose . . . smile

- - - - -

Beat a higher player
Win a game against someone with higher rank
Win a game against a Skilled Player (Lvl 26)
Win a game against a Semi-Pro Player (Lvl 35)
Win a game against a Hustler Player (Lvl 68)
Win a game against a Legendary Player (Lvl 95)

The higher rank one popped in career when I was still the lowest rank. For the others, you have to beat someone that is at the level specified above. Since the game is still new as of writing this, many of these are hard to find.

- - - - -

Winning Online
Win 20 online games
Win 50 online games
Win 100 online games

Go to my games and select quick match. 8 Ball is usually the quickest to find an opponent for, but simply win the game

- - - - -

Killer
Win with 2 lives remaining
Win with 3 lives remaining

In a game of Killer, you start with 3 lives. You must pocket a ball on each shot, with possession switching after every shot. If you fail to do so, or you foul, you lose one life, but potting the 8 ball will give you one life back. You must have 2 lives left for the 2 lives accolade, but I'm pretty sure you can have upwards of 3 for the 3 lives remaining accolade

- - - - -

Accumulator
Win with at least 60 points
Win with at least 70 points
Win with at least 80 points

In a game of Accumulator, you most pot each ball in sequence. Each ball is worth the amount of points as the number on it. If you pot the 1 ball you get 1pt, 2 ball - 2pts, etc. If you pot a ball that isn't next in line, you give your opponent that many points. This is true even if you pot the correct ball but knock another in, meaning they get that many points and you don't get any. A foul also adds one point to the other person, so if you don't have a shot lined up and the next ball is blocked it might be easier to give up 1 point and have the computer possibly give you multiple points in return
