After earning this achievement, Id just like to confirm some things for you.

To start, enter league play and play five placement games. This decides what division you are in. Contrary to popular belief, purposely doing bad to be placed in a lower league does not make this achievement easier.

Once you are placed in a league, you will then have to win five games. The five placement games do not count toward the win total, you must be placed in a division for the wins to count.

They are all team based, not FFA. Which is nice.

Now, the reason it isn't easier, is because regardless of division you will play people from all divisions as well as unplaced people.

Ok, to confirm.

Drawn matches, such as confirmed kill, despite counting as a victory on your combat card, do not count.

Secondly, you don't have to win all five in the same division.

You can get relegated or promoted, and your wins carry over.

You do not need a win streak of five, just five total wins.

However, if a new season starts, your win count does not carry over. You will need to be replaced, and then win five games
essentially, you start from scratch.

Update - if a season finishes, and a new one starts, you can't be placed until a new season opens, so do not waste time playing the placement matches, as they won't count.

Important - Do not attempt this before earning the level 10 achievement. League play does not count as a public match, therefore if you hit level 10 during league play your achievement will not pop, and as you are already level ten it doesn't seem like you can reacquire it. Info provided from the comments. Seems it will pop eventually from playing public, but I wouldnt risk it.

Any questions, just ask.
