    50 Clean Sheet Expert: Win 100 Love Games For Gold

    Note 1:
    Number 36. Beat 8 games is in fact "Beat 12 games to level 8" but the VT3 screen is wrong. Beat all 12 to level 8 to unlock the medal.

    Note 2:
    The online matches must be completed and so if your opponent quits out it does not count towards your games won.

    Note 3:
    Number 25, 26 and 27 can be obtained via quiting out once the match has started. I can confirm this works as this worked for me.

    Note 4: Beat all famous female/male players - you do not need to beat the bonus players (henman, king, duke etc.)

    Hope this solution helps. I currently have about 27/50 but am slowly knocking each one down.

    Pigimiss PrimeI wondered why you needed so many online macthes, when the others are only for 10.

    sonnyliston1Great list, can I just add that all the tour medals can be obtained through multiply playthroughs, for example if you can only complete several mini games then play them severall times across your profiles. Hope this helps people.

    TEL1981For the 150 online world tour match wins:
    There's 8 x tournaments (3 rounds each) and 16 x singles matches.
    If you and your boosting buddy both make 4 characters and meet at an obscure time these are very easy to get.
    One player wins every tournament and singles match with 1 character and one player loses. The losing player can then delete and create a new player in the losing ones place.
    For the tournaments: If 1 player wins and progresses to the next round. The losing player can then delete, create a new player , and search for the same tournament to play the 2nd/3rd rounds for the winning player.
    Keep doing this whilst switching who wins/loses until you both have 3 characters with all of the tourns and singles matches WON. Then you can share the last batch between the 2 of you.
    Total matches per charcter won = 24 (tourns) + 16 (singles). With 3 characters done you will both have 120 done in total. + half each on the 4th character (20) = 140 total.
    They all reset every sunday so you can do them all again.
    Me and my boosting buddy managed to get a whole character done each (40 wins) in around 3 1/2 hours.
    As I said above try to meet at an obsucre time because randoms slow things down quite a bit.
    Always make the losing player search first so they meet the randoms if there are any. If there's none, tell your friend to search.
    If the losing player does meet a random just quit out, create a new player and search again for your friend.
    Using this 4 character method seems to mess with the leaderboards a little. Everytime you get a win, it adds the total amount of wins that your profile (4 characters) has each time. Hundreds of wins will show on the leaderboard. Only 1 win per match actually counts though.
    You can track your progress via My VT - Records - Xbox live stats - Career wins. This figure is still not exactly correct and is a little bit out. Check your medals for confirmation when you've past the milestones for bronze, silver and gold.
    It's also worth noting that World Tour Matches also count as player matches. So, if you do World Tour 1st, You will both already have 150 player match wins towards your 250 total needed.
    Thought these tips would be useful.
    Good Luck!

    Brandon oh no45 Nature Compelling Company: Make 25 Friends In World Tour For Gold -

    When you make a new character character, you will always have one partner that you have to practice with. After that, you can rest, go back to world map, and check to see if you have any offers. Keep resting/checking. I was able to get up to 5 partners under all my profiles with this.

    If you delete a profile with friends you've made of it, it -may- remember it. I had mine unlock at 23, so its entirely possible.

    24 Highly Versatile: Unlock 20 Advanced Playstyles For Gold

    Advanced playstyles are the normal playstyles with the "+" next to them. There are a lot of fairly easy minigames that will boost your bar by about half if you do them on LVL 8.

    I really like the Animal Feeder, the one with the pucks sliding over the ice, and the one with the pirate ships. I did these on LVL8 and got these very quickly.

    The Manic MooseGood contribution Brandon. This is certainly a doable achievement just very time consuming - the online in particular.
