This achievement requires you to reach rank 61 in online games (I'm using 1 vs 1 matches for the description below). My suggestion is to find a 2nd person and the 2 of you boost games trying to keep your rank very close to each other in the process.

The total amount of XP needed for rank 61 is 522,678 (Thanks epsilon for the exact amount!).

With each match being 25 minutes if you have 1 player just capture all the supply depots, build 100 administrative buildings and then surrender the opponent will get roughly 30,000 XP per match and the opponent really does nothing for 20+ minutes. We have been averaging around 21-22 minutes per match as we have maxed out the 100 building limit before the time has run out so it shaves a bit off the total time.

We have been running 3 hour sessions and getting in roughly 7-8 games in that timeframe. You are looking at about 18 wins needed per person at 25 minutes per match for a total of 7 1/2 hours per person. You can add in probably an extra hour or 2 for matchmaking as you will not always get matched up initially. Once you are both in the 30+ range of rank you will match up far quicker with your boosting partner.

When boosting you will need to be within the same "10" range of rank for matching up. People in the different rank levels do not match up as easily to people not within their rank level (and sometimes they can never match up).

The range of ranks are as follows :

Ranks 1-10, 11-20, 21-30, 31-40, 41-50 & 51-60.

When you both get to rank 60 you will need to make sure you both get rank 61 in the same match. It is not impossible but you may need to play 1 or 2 real quick games to narrow the XP gap between you both while making sure you can accomplish the amount of XP needed for rank 61 in a single game. When you hit rank 61, you can not play anyone lower then rank 61 so you will be screwed if you both don't hit it at the same time.

At this moment me & my boosting partner are 11,100 and 17,800 away from rank 61. What we will do is play another match where we both get enough XP to be about 5000 away from rank 61. On the next match we will both make sure to get enough XP so that we both clear rank 61 together in the same match.

I'd suggest alternating wins so you don't get a bonus for winning consecutive matches and also keep your ranks very close together as someone on a lower rank beating a higher ranked player gets you a bonus as well. It may only be a thousand or so XP but it could make the difference between you being stuck at rank 60 and your boosting partner making rank 61 :(

I hope this solution helps people in the future when trying to boost this game.
