Introduced in the [[Car Mastery Update]], '''Car Mastery''' (or just '''Mastery''') is another single player game mode of ''[[Asphalt 8: Airborne]]''. It offers 15 single-lap races with traffic, called Challenges, for each car of the game, with the possibility to earn [[Credits]], [[Tokens]], Car [[Upgrades]], [[Pro Boxes]], Boosters, and {{A8Licenses}} '''[[Licenses]]'''. This mode is only available for players with at least 135 stars (this was increased to 150 stars in the [[Fifteenth Anniversary Update]]) in the [[Asphalt 8: Airborne/Career Mode|Career Mode]].
  +

A similar version, called Moto Mastery, is used for motorcycles.
   
 
== Challenges ==
 
== Challenges ==
For each car in the game, there are 15 Races available, in increasing difficulty: the cars of your NPC opponents will be gradually increase from initial rank to max to max+pro. To be able to accept a challenge, i.e. take part in the race, you have to complete the previous challenges. Also your car has to have a certain level, challenges 1 to 5 being available without upgrades, increasing until Challenge 15 which requires a maxed and pro'ed car. While Challenges 1 to 10 have traffic, Challenges 11 to 15 are without traffic (except for the usual stationary vehicles).

For each car in the game there are 15 Mastery Challenges available. These races increase in difficulty: the ranks of the cars of NPC opponents will gradually increase from the initial car rank for Challenge 1 to MAX+PRO rank for Challenge 15. To be able to accept a certain Challenge, i.e. take part in the race, each previous Challenge must have been completed. Each Challenge also requires the car to have a certain rank; challenges 1 and 2 being available without upgrades (challenges 3, 4 and 5 were also available without upgrades prior to the [[Research & Development Update]]), and increasing until Challenge 15, which requires a MAX and PRO car.
   
Challenges are either of type ''Classic, Unplugged ''or ''Flawless''. Classic means you have to finish first, Unplugged means finish first without Nitro refills on the track, and Flawless finish first without crashing: if you crash, you are immediately disqualified, and the race ends, without credits earned.
+
Challenges are races either one of these types: [[Classic]], [[Unplugged]], or [[Flawless]]. All of these race modes require a first place finish in order to be successfully completed. The Unplugged and Flawless modes, however, come with a twist: in an Unplugged race no nitro tanks appear on the track, whilst in the Flawless mode, the player is not allowed to wreck their car. A wrecked car results in immediate disqualification and the race ending with no credits awarded.
==Licences ==
 
[[File:Car mastery exclusive rewards.jpg|thumb|280x280px]]
 
Licences work as an experience level, similar to the star system, which you cannot ''buy'' but only ''earn''. However instead of giving you access to new levels, the licences give you access to new [[Decal]] packs, as well as some cars apparently exclusively available through licences: [[Camaro Z/28]] (300),  [[Datsun 280Z]](650) and [[Shelby Cobra 427]](1050). See the detailed contents of each decal pack on the page [[Car Mastery/Car Mastery Rewards|Car Mastery Rewards]].
 
   
== Farming ==
+
According to the in-game database, the AI racers are actually ranked higher than what the game shows (except at the first Mastery Challenge). For example, a Mastery Challenge with a required rank of 1725 actually has the AI racers ranked at 1777, despite the game saying otherwise. Because of this, in the later Mastery Challenges, the player must not make mistakes in order to finish first, especially as of the [[2018 Spring Update]], where the AI racers have become even more aggressive and relentless than before.
The Mastery mode is interesting for farming in the classical sense once you have pro'ed your Class S or Class A car:
 
   
The 15th challenge for the [[Lamborghini Veneno]] in [[Alps]] pays {{Credits|5,845}} for less than a minute of driving (versus the Season 9 race which takes at least 1'30 and pays {{Credits| 4,725 }}) or the [[McLaren P1]] 15th challenge in [[Temple Drive]] which pays {{Credits|5,915}}.
+
== Licenses ==
+
[[File:Car mastery exclusive rewards.jpg|thumb|280x280px]]
But not all pro'ed cars are suitable for farming, for instance for the [[Mercedes-Benz Silver Lightning]] in [[Tokyo]] gives {{Credits|5,925}}, but because Tokyo is a long track and the race type is Unplugged, the credits per second are not very high. Also the opponents are at the same car upgrade level, you risk to not finish first if you crash.

{{A8Licenses| }} '''Licenses''', also sometimes called '''Mastery Points''', are permanent collectable items which work as an experience level, similar to the star system, which you cannot ''buy'' but only ''earn''. However instead of giving you access to new levels, the Licenses give you access to various rewards such as new [[Decal]] packs, and cars exclusively available through Licenses: [[Geely GC9]] ({{A8Licenses|100}}) [[Camaro Z/28]] ({{A8Licenses|300}}),  [[Datsun 280Z]] ({{A8Licenses|650}}), [[Shelby Cobra 427]] ({{A8Licenses|1,050}}) and [[Cadillac 16 Concept]] ({{A8Licenses|1,600}}).
  +
Licenses are represented as a rectangular blue icon with a beige steering wheel on it.
   
However in a less strict sense of the term, you can earn a lot of credits while playing, independent of you car level: among all races of all cars, the total of Race Rewards are estimated to {{Credits|4,500,000}}, the medals reward around {{Credits|400,000}}, and the Challenge Rewards {{Credits|11,000,000}}, not counting the value of the Pro Boxes, Boosters or car upgrades.

For each race you play in the Mastery mode, you get a number of rewards. Similar to events, you can cash in those rewards after the race, or you can decide to leave them for later.

Introduced in the Car Mastery Update, Car Mastery (or just Mastery) is another single player game mode of Asphalt 8: Airborne. It offers 15 single-lap races with traffic, called Challenges, for each car of the game, with the possibility to earn Credits, Tokens, Car Upgrades, Pro Boxes, Boosters, and Licenses full a8 Licenses. This mode is only available for players with at least 135 stars (this was increased to 150 stars in the Fifteenth Anniversary Update) in the Career Mode.

A similar version, called Moto Mastery, is used for motorcycles.

Challenges Edit

Car Mastery Dodge

Challenge selection Screen

For each car in the game there are 15 Mastery Challenges available. These races increase in difficulty: the ranks of the cars of NPC opponents will gradually increase from the initial car rank for Challenge 1 to MAX+PRO rank for Challenge 15. To be able to accept a certain Challenge, i.e. take part in the race, each previous Challenge must have been completed. Each Challenge also requires the car to have a certain rank; challenges 1 and 2 being available without upgrades (challenges 3, 4 and 5 were also available without upgrades prior to the Research & Development Update), and increasing until Challenge 15, which requires a MAX and PRO car.

Challenges are races either one of these types: Classic, Unplugged, or Flawless. All of these race modes require a first place finish in order to be successfully completed. The Unplugged and Flawless modes, however, come with a twist: in an Unplugged race no nitro tanks appear on the track, whilst in the Flawless mode, the player is not allowed to wreck their car. A wrecked car results in immediate disqualification and the race ending with no credits awarded.

According to the in-game database, the AI racers are actually ranked higher than what the game shows (except at the first Mastery Challenge). For example, a Mastery Challenge with a required rank of 1725 actually has the AI racers ranked at 1777, despite the game saying otherwise. Because of this, in the later Mastery Challenges, the player must not make mistakes in order to finish first, especially as of the 2018 Spring Update, where the AI racers have become even more aggressive and relentless than before.

Licenses Edit

Car mastery exclusive rewards
Main article: Mastery rewards (Asphalt 8)

Licenses full a8 Licenses, also sometimes called Mastery Points, are permanent collectable items which work as an experience level, similar to the star system, which you cannot buy but only earn. However instead of giving you access to new levels, the Licenses give you access to various rewards such as new Decal packs, and cars exclusively available through Licenses: Geely GC9 (Licenses full a8 100Camaro Z/28 (Licenses full a8 300),  Datsun 280Z (Licenses full a8 650), Shelby Cobra 427 (Licenses full a8 1,050) and Cadillac 16 Concept (Licenses full a8 1,600). Licenses are represented as a rectangular blue icon with a beige steering wheel on it.

Challenge Rewards Edit

For each race you play in the Mastery mode, you get a number of rewards. Similar to events, you can cash in those rewards after the race, or you can decide to leave them for later.

Each Challenge grants a Credits reward. Challenges 4, 8, 12 and 15 grant additional rewards according to the following tables.
