We’ve had a few questions about “How do I earn Acorns?” and “When do the Acorn Tournaments start?” as well as “Are items that cost Acorns ever going to be on sale?

By the time you finish reading this, you’ll have all of the information that you need to answer all of the above questions.

How do I earn Acorns?
We’ve gone over this a few times, but now that we have the Rainbow Replay Challenge (http://trials.ubi.com/trials-portal/en-US/news/detail.aspx?c=tcm:152-211339-16&ct=tcm:148-76770-32) and the Awesome Adventure Homework (http://trials.ubi.com/trials-portal/en-US/news/detail.aspx?c=tcm:152-211221-16&ct=tcm:148-76770-32) competitions live, as well as the info a little later about Tournaments, you’ll see that there are quite a few ways to get Acorns without the need to purchase them. Don’t feel like taking part in any of these activities? That’s alright too, we all feel like sitting things out every once in a while. You can pick up Acorns in the Digital Marketplaces for your platform of choice.

When does this Acorn Tournament go live? What’s the deal, start it already!
We’re kicking off Acorn Tournaments THIS weekend (actually Friday!) with a 3 day ‘Launch Day’ tournament named “Max Throttle”. This first Tournament isn’t going to be TOO tough, and 99% of players who participates will be cashing in their earned medal for some Acorns at the end of the Tournament.

What numbers are we looking at for Acorns?
• Our Gold Place finishers, that’s everyone in the Top 5% of placement and above, will be walking out with 300 Acorns.
• Silver place finishers, riders from Top 40% - 6%, will get 150 Acorns.
• Participation ribbon winners (Please don’t change it again, Shogun – Shifty) Top 41%-99% will still be walking away with 50 Acorns.

If you keep ending up in a tier that doesn’t have the prizing that you feel you deserve, we highly recommend some time attending classes at the University of Trials (https://www.youtube.com/user/UniversityOfTrials). Like any other skill, you only get better with practice.

Will items ever be on sale?
Yes, as a matter of fact our first sale should be live PRETTY close to when this article goes up (Maybe a day after). We aren’t talking like 5% off, or 10% off… No, we’re riding into Awesome Level MAX launch weekend with some pretty strong discounts on two items.

What’s the next Acorn Tournament and Sale Items?
Those questions will need to wait until next week.

At first i was at odd with this idea , wondering if it will be just generated towards a certain class but having read the above , its got me alittle excited. although im not that bothered about the items , the bikes skins look awsome and a must for any trials rider. I am very pleased to read and see that there is many ways acorns can be earnt. The main reason though this gave my own acorns alittle buz:p is that these tournaments and the fact of sales items go hand in hand to bringing the whole comunity together and actually enjoying the tournament feature of the game. I hope others see it like this also even tho the microtransactions is still in the loop regarding acorns , this should be embraced by all true fans of the game and should bring a good alround vibe to trials.

Looking forward to coming last :p because at the end of the day it seems like these tournaments are going to be great fun and competing in them is what ! the aim of trials isnt it.

All i want to know is when does the gold skin for the roach go on sale hahah:p

Very nice Funk. Keep it up and you'll have enough acorns for an outfit by next 4th of July.
I pulled a solid 300 acorns. When my family hears this, they will be confused as usual. Luckily, I've been working on my drop kick to sort them out.

The actual getting something for winning a tournament has magically shot life into tournaments. 1800 people on ps4 for a weekend. Probably the most played tournament to date. Even though it's only 300 acorns for top 5%, people are up for it. It helps it's on the main page, as well. The new layout is much better. A hard/extreme tournament for more acorns sounds good. Imagine all the folks you'll get to melt on it, just for 100 acorns...solid.

You tell your family ? :eek: :p

Yeah was fun riding the tourny , was surprised and wow thats a massive increase on players. I think any offer of acorns will round up the heard which is good. However i did look at the actual price of the acorns , just to see mind and wow they are steep.

I guess i will have to mount up my acorns like a true little squirrel and cash them in at the nut store when my jar is full for the gold roach skin:p Then again i didnt realise it was actually rayman which changed it slightly but still looks cool.

I wonder if the bank manager at the acorn bank does buisness loans ? guess if i dont pay it back they can take me tree hahaha
