F1 2010 Walkthrough

5. Multiplayer


Once you've completed Grand Prix and Season mode, the only thing left is Online. The trophies here are very standard, one for being a considerate driver and three for just reaching the required ranks. When you first start playing you'll want to do the Grand Prix type. This is not the fastest way to get XP but you'll need to do it for an trophy so it's best to get it out of the way first.

Grand Prix mode consists of a 15 minute practice session and a 7 lap race meaning that most of the time the qualifying goes on for longer than the race. People who play this game type are usually a bit better but it's still fairly easy to win one of these races unless you are unfortunate enough to end up against a real racing legend. Sadly there is no way to skip the qualifying however it's not even necessary to complete it. Given the way most people drive online, you've got as much chance winning from first as you do from last. More so in fact since everyone always crashes into the back of the pole position driver when they brake for the first corner. If you are struggling you can actually get this with a friend by setting up a private match. However it takes around 30 minutes each so you'll both need some free time.

Once you've completed those three, it's time to grind your way to the top rank of Level 50. This requires 1,000,000XP. Sprint is the fastest way to do this unless you plan to boost with a friend (which isn't faster but easier). Most people play sprint and it's not uncommon to get the max amount of people, twelve, in one race. Here's a breakdown of all the ranks and the XP you'll need to get them.

To check your current XP you can look at the leaderboard which gives you a lot of statistics. In a two person race you'll get around 500XP for coming first. The more people there are in the race then the more you get. If they are higher levels then you will get even more for beating them but that makes less of a difference then simply having lots of people in the race. If you come second you'll get roughly 80% of the XP the person in first gets. 3rd gets around 65%, 4th 55%, 5th 50% and it trails off towards 45% of the XP gained from the person in first. Coming last place in a race of twelve people will get you more XP than coming first in a race of two people so it's always good to stick around. Having said that, people are always quitting in this game but luckily you still get all the XP you'd normally get and the race is cut short if everyone leaves (but you still need to complete the lap you are on). Coming first ahead of eleven people will get you around 3.5 times the amount of XP you'd get from beating one person like your friend if you are boosting this with someone's help. What assists you put on makes no difference to the amount of XP gained. If you're playing other game types like Endurance where the length of the race is 20% of what it normally would be in real life, you only get a small increase in XP even though its often three times as long as a Sprint race. Coming first in qualifying in the other two game types will get you some healthy XP if that's how you want to do it but even then it can't compete with Sprint.

To get 100,000XP which is a tenth of what you need took me around 5 days of playing. However I was really committed and putting in a lot of hours every day (6+ hours) so it might not go as well for you. In short then to reach Level 50 takes around two months of solid gameplay.
