How to unlock the Survive achievement

  • 2 2 4
    You need to win 7 of the first 9 games to reach the 10th game for the achievement (which will unlock after the final game.
    Here are some tips and hits to getting there,

    you have ten players to put in your LU, and you get to pick one each time,
    I put 1 Dominate dunker (MJ or Penny) and then 9 Tall shot blocking rebounders.

    the first game is more about winning with your weakest link (ie the guard) i do this bcause its a faster game.. if you win you keep going if not just reset.
    Now once you start using Center and PFs, here is the key, no matter who you get on your team, YOur biggest guy is who you will control on defense, basically just hover in the paint and swivel around to keep them from scoring inside, no matter what, if you keep them from scoring inside you will be successful.

    on offense, feed that paint and try to get easy buckets or short jumpers, games 2-6 you want guys like Shaq, Mutumbo, CUZ, AD, Whiteside, (i also used sam Bullar)

    When it comes to games 7-9 you want your more atheletic shooting bigs (dirk, Jerry Lucas are great jumpshot bigs.

    If at any time you go up against a team that gets a Diamond Kareem, Foul that kid every time kareem gets the ball. when hes on offense deny kareem the ball the best you can, its very difficult to beat someone who has kareem unless you ave a great outside shooter, (keep in mind you def need a good inside defender if this happens.

    If you get diamond kareem, feed that guy all day and twice on sunday.

    in my first run through i went against kareem 3 times, managed to win 2 of the 3.. and that got me to my 10th game.

    Dont freak out when the opposing team has a Curry or Lebron or Brow on their team, most of the people try to do to much with their best player, and are easily dismantled.. they will at best go 4-9 from 3 in most cases. as the mechanics for hitting 3s are less than consistant -- when this occurs you want to keep going inside for easy baskets, dont start jacking 3s trying to keep up. just go inside, they will miss enough 3s to keep you in the game if you score 65 percent of the time

    GO inside on offense, easy baskets, pass the ball, dont dribble too much. Zone D.. dont let their bigs get easy buckets,

    Only take 3s if their wide open from the sideline, that three has the best odds of going in of all the potential shots. ( dont take if it there isnt a big inside to get a offensive rebound if you miss)

    following this should give you a good chance to make it to game ten!

    To earn this achievement you have to make it to the tenth game and then play the tenth game. Here are some suggestions that I used:
    - for the first game, keep re-starting until you get a lineup you like
    - max out your badges before you play with your ten. This makes a huge difference in your play
    - because the points go 1 point for an inside shot and 2 points for a three pointer, there is definitely a premium on three point shots. So either load up on solid three point shooters or drive and dish
    - try to play against the person who is guarding you. What I mean is, that if your opponent is controlling the opposing PG, then try to take it right to the hole with your PG. If they are sitting back on defense with a big man, then post up!
    - on the tenth game (you will be 7-2 at this point), it is okay to lose! You need to finish the game so my last game I got two diamonds so I just played like crap and lost so my opponent didn't drop out.

    Good luck on this achievement. I started off 4-1 with my starters from MyTeam and then decided to continue but this took many attempts. Remember once again that you are allowed to continue choosing your first set of players, so I used the weakest of my starting 5 and then got two great players to go with.
