Moving on Up
You will probably get this first anyways but it would be a safe thing to obtain this achievement first:
You will have to have 2500 at the same time and if you look at your achievement progress on the X1 side screen it will already be about 40%.
0 trophies = 0%, 2500 trophies = 100%.
DR studios has made a couple of changes to make this achievement much more difficult than the 2500 dog tag achievement in Battle Islands, one of the things that has changed is that you cannot attack anyone in Clans anymore, which was EXTREMELY helpful. Instead you have to use their search system which will bring up a list of enemies you can fight and if you don't like any of the ones they chose you have to hit
to refresh until you see an opponent that works for you.
The 2nd thing they changed is that you cannot continually attack people around 1000 Trophies, if you attack anyone around 1000 trophies say after you obtain 1300-1400 trophies you will receive 1 measly trophy. You must beat opponents right in your trophy range meaning this will seriously be a battle all the way to 2500, sorry you cannot beat up people below your trophy level this time....Method 1:
One way to get this achievement is to attack anyone that has a base level below you and more trophies then you, this will net you the most amount of trophies, that or at your same level. If you don't think you can win hit B and retreat before putting any units down. All you need is 1 star to not lose trophies which is 50% base damage or destroy the main building.
Currently since there is a high amount of people still around 1000 trophies is this very difficult to obtain, I am around 1800 trophies and unless I get 3 stars on anyone above 1400 trophies I will only be awarded 1 trophy for winning WITH 3 stars. So compared to Battle Island this is MUCH more difficult to obtain. Once people start moving up in trophies 2500 should become easier to obtain.....
Another tip I have been using to go for 2500 trophies since I have found out that it is EXTREMELY easy to lose defensive battles (which means losing trophies) is that if you are attacking people and need to wait for your units to build (eventually they will take time, currently its 8-9 minute for my units to build) make sure to keep hitting a button while you are away (I watch TV while waiting or go on my laptop). The game will make you inactive and available for attacks within less than a minute of inactivity (Crazy I know right!). Keep your Peaceful mode active unless you are either very secure about winning defensively and only attack people when you know you have time to sit and attack people for a while because if you don't win defensively and don't win your trophies fast enough you will never make it to 2500 trophies. Compared to Battle Islands this game is a whole different ball park.Method 2:
Today I took the time to go from 1850 trophies to 2500. The amount of time it took was about 10 hours. I could have obtained it much faster but did not realize it until later. Here's how:
I recommend having your base Age 2 or 3 (mine was AGE 3), get your units fully upgraded and have 2 CASTRA's (tents that buid units, and if in age 3) able to have 30 units each. Now what you want to do is put a BOOST on both of them which only cost 10 Jewels to last 4 hours. Now this is a VERY repetitive tactic but nets the most amount of trophies when you are around 2000 trophies, go into BATTLE and search for anyone below the base level 6 and attack them. JUST obtain 1 star! (I always aimed for the main structure) and immediately retreat by hitting
, this will count as 1 win and give you 1 trophy. Re-supply your tents building units and repeat the pattern. Its extremely boring so I recommend watching something on a laptop or 2nd tv. If you do it really fast you can net a ton of trophies. Another quick note is that unlike Battle Islands there is no Trophy limit meaning you can attack people below 1000 trophies when you pass 2000.
