Breaking centuries
Bronze Image PS

Breaking centuries
Achieve a break of 100 or more in snooker

Choose versus and snooker as the chosen game mode from the main menu.

In a game of snooker you pot a red ball followed by a coloured ball before potting another red and repeating this cycle until no balls are left on the table, a maximum break of 147 in snooker requires you to pit all 15 reds followed by 15 blacks before finally potting all the colours.

This century break is thankfully not as bad as the maximum break but still requires you to play a decent game, use the extended aiming feature to your advantage so you can predict where the cue ball will stop after each shot because missing one shot will end you break and you will have to restart.

This may take a few attempts but once you get the hang of it the break will happen and you will get better, once you have that important century break your Trophy will then unlock.

Pool King
Gold Image PS

Pool King
Reach level 100

Level 100 requires a total of 5700xp to be earned, the fastest way to earn XP is to play an online match with a boosting partner.

Set a match up playing any of the game modes you wish then set the frames count to 25 and turn aiming level to off.

When the match starts take it in turns to forfeit the match and then choose the rematch option, this will next you 52xp for only a few seconds work and is the quickest to level 100.

Win a match in the tour with no aiming aid

Start a new career and choose to play on the 9 ball tour then set the aiming level to off and AI difficulty to easy before starting the career.

Now start the first qualifying match at Hawaii, with no aim it’s best to play simple shots on the balls and as the AI difficulty is set to easy they will miss plenty of shots so keep potting the balls and you’re free to restart the match if needed.

Then when you have potted the 9 ball to win the match, your Trophy will unlock during the match result screen.

Zen Master

See Zen Master – No Aim Gold Image PS for more information.

Zen Rookie
Bronze Image PS

Achieve a time of 6 minutes in endurance.

See Zen Master – No Aim Gold Image PS for more information.

Zen Master - No Aim
Gold Image PS

Zen Master – No Aim
Achieve a time of 12 minutes in endurance without an aiming aid.

Endurance can be found from the main menu, so select this mode and then in the pre match menu set the aiming level to off but all other settings are personal preference.

In an endurance match you start off by breaking off with 9 balls on the table and every 10 seconds another ball will appear on the table, when the table has 24 balls on it the game will end.

It’s your aim to survive for 12 minutes by potting as many balls as you can, this is helped by the drop stop mechanic which for every successful pot it will fill up this bar, which, when activated will turn the table red and each pocket will be engulfed by flames and more importantly give you a 15 second break from any balls entering the table.

If you foul or pot the cue ball another ball will appear instantly which is important to know as you will be playing with no aim assist so do your best to make sure every shot is legal.

With no aim assistance it will take a few attempts to get used to but the best strategy is small shots on balls that are close to pockets, if the ball goes in then that’s great, if not the ball gets closer to a pocket and makes the next shot easier.

If you find you don’t have an easy shot this is when you perform a powering shot which hopefully ricochets and will pot a subsequent ball but use this type of shot with caution as it can cause balls to get very close to each other making your next shot potentially challenging.

Always look quickly round the table as the auto aim on the next ball is not always the best one to go for and once you have exceeded the 12 minutes your Trophy will unlock.

Win All Leagues

Quite possibly the last trophy you will earn in Pool Nation, online leagues see you start in league 10 and you have to work your way up to league 1 and then win it, each league season consists of 10 matches and for each win you score points however a loss gets you no points.

Promotion and relegation is active in all leagues so you need to win consistently to earn regular promotions.

This probably can only be done using a boosting partner as the online is very quiet so finding a random player will be very rare.

When you have won League 1, you have our congratulations here at Griffins Gaming Guides as well as hopefully your Platinum Image PS.

That’s the Pool Nation Trophy Guide I hope it helps you through the game.
