Welcome to my profile, Asphalt fans and fellow racers!

I'm ShinnyShin and I'm one of the many car lovers and volunteer editors on this Wiki.

As of the Motorcycles Update, my in-game tag is now also ShinnyShin.

I've been playing Asphalt 8: Airborne since February 2014 and I'm quite proud to say that to this day, I have never, ever spent any money on this game and have come quite far on just my own skills and a little bit of luck!

I do all of my racing on my one Android account, so just to avoid any confusion - if you see anyone else on another platform with a similar name, that isn't me!

I update my profile page regularly, so be sure to check back often!

My Favorite Tracks

  • Rio de Janeiro - I love how amazingly lively, vibrant and colorful this location is, just like the real thing!
  • Dubai - Many nice features, especially the Aquarium and the plaza. I love to just sit there and take in the view of the Aquarium's beauty!
  • London - Mostly because I used to live here. Why doesn't the real one look like this?
  • Monaco - Nice one for adding this as a track, since races happen here in real life. The hair-pin turns are ideal for triple-drifting!
  • Nevada - Lots of room for some major epic tricks and stunts here. Wild west racing at its best!
  • The Great Wall - The feeling of ancient history associated with this location combined with modern racing is quite spectacular!
  • Sector 8 - A glimpse into the future with plenty of twists, turns and surprises. Hoping to see more tracks like this!
  • Barcelona - Great for cruising long straights and testing the top speed of my cars, as well as the beach ramps for stunts!
  • Orbital Loop - They said the sky was the limit, but boy were they wrong! The views of Earth are quite stunning, and I can see my house from here!

A Little More ...

  • From day one, I have always been a solo player. I have no intentions of joining any Teams or Clans. Everything I've ever achieved is purely down to my own skills and experiences
  • My strategy is simply to play and have fun, as well as get ahead using only my skills and efforts. It's still possible to progress and enjoy the game without spending any money on it, and for me, the day I use my wallet to advance in this game, is the day the fun dies
  • Since Asphalt 8 evolves all the time, so does my style of play. I don't focus on how much better other players are than me, but on how I can beat them. Speed isn't everything, skills are!
  • I quite like Championship Events as they are usually the most rewarding in my opinion. Assembly Cups are another favorite. On the other hand, I'm not a big fan of Research & Development Events. Those demand too much precious time and can be very draining, so I only tend to participate in those if they offer cars that I actually want
  • During Ticket races, I'm usually a pretty chill guy who's just going for the win. If I'm in a stronger car than you, I will just try and pass you without incident and let you get a respectable 2nd place without ruining your streak. If it's vice versa, I will move to the side and let you pass. However, if you decide to fight me, you will pay the ultimate price!
  • During Free races, I'll more often than not pull over near the Finish Line to help you gain Rating points. Be on the lookout!
  • My highest Multiplayer League achievement has been Tier 2 of the Champion League
  • The car that got me to the Champion League for the first time was my trusty Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 2013. Sadly it is now retired as it cannot compete anymore due to the very broken match-making system. Thank you and R.I.P. old friend
  • Despite not spending any actual money to get this far, I have splashed out over 25.5 million Credits on just buying the cars and bikes that I either didn't win, or get for free. This is WITHOUT upgrading any of them. The total cost plus upgrades is MUCH MUCH higher
  • Conversely, almost all of my Tokens cars have been obtained for free with the exception of the Renault DeZir ( Tokens 180​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ ) the ED Design Torq ( Tokens 4,000​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ ) and the Chevrolet 2016 Camaro SS (discounted at  Tokens 4,375​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ ). A couple more exceptions include the Kepler Motion ( Credits 325,000​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ ) and the McLaren P1™ GTR ( Credits 2,700,000​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ ). The other cars were obtained through Time-Limited Events or as Daily Login Bonus rewards
  • I'm pretty bummed that the Android platform doesn't support the Exclusive Metal Events. Please, Gameloft, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE bring this feature to the Android platform. It's been several YEARS now since this game was released!!
  • With the current exception of the Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 SV, the Porsche 918 Spyder with Weissach Package, the Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition and the Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG Racing Series, I usually avoid all Elite Cars like the plague. Unless they're free, in which case I will get them. Or if they're based on any of my real-life favorite cars. OR if I manage to get all the Blueprints. I never use any of them in Season Ticket races either
  • I never fully upgrade my cars unless it's absolutely required. My main goal is to tune them to the best competitive stats, but if they're completely obsolete for anything, I will only then fully upgrade them for their Mastery rewards, or leave them as they are if their cost outweighs their efficiency
  • I'm pretty glad that I was able to get these cars before the Porsche Update made them unavailable. These cars are the RUF RT 12 S, the RUF CTR 3, the 9FF GT9 VMAX and the Rinspeed zaZen. I do feel bad for the newer players who might never get a chance to own any of these alongside the Porsches, unless Gameloft change their ways
  • I don't own any of the Jaguars. The single most affordable one has limited use anyway, so why bother?
  • Why did I have 2 Heat Cars for Class A, you ask? Quite simple, really. The Hommage was purely for speed on longer, easier tracks and the MP4-25 was purely for agility on shorter, more technical tracks

Thanks for taking the time to read this far! More to come soon!
