To get this, you need to take yourself, and your team*, up to a platinum colour on the teams shield. Experience to your rank ONLY counts when playing a crossword that says "New Crossword" before you click on it. This means that yes, you do need to buy more crosswords with tokens you've earnt from the in-game shop. You can buy 50 new crosswords for 1000 tokens, 20 for 500, 10 for 300, 5 for 180, 2 for 80.

* You do not actually need a member of your team in a puzzle with you, but it can make them go quicker!

Obviously, it's best to keep playing the same puzzles again, saving up 1000 tokens, and then buying 50 new puzzles.

By the time I had played all of the base-game crosswords in the game, with my team (there are 20 crosswords in the base game, and some of THEM are duplicated), my team was up to rank 42. Unfortunately, this is when we discovered something very disappointing;

This achievement is a prestige-based achievement, like in Call of Duty. You need to get to Rank 99 in Bronze to then be able to level up to Silver. Silver Rank 99 to get then be able to level up to Gold. Then, finally, Gold Rank 99 to get to Platinum Rank 1, and get this achievement.

EDIT #1: There is a slight 'tracking' glitch with your rank levels where your rank, as you're nearing a colour-upgrade (e.g. silver rank to gold rank) in ranking numbers, will display Bronze Rank 99. Do not worry about this, as this is just a glitch in the game, and your ranking is remembered. Once you've ranked up with more crossword puzzles, it will display what your rank actually is.

EDIT #2: There is talk from the developers that they are changing the ranking system. The above information is very likely to become invalid or incorrect should the developers change the ranking system.

EDIT #3: According to the developers, now only people that are at a rank that is platinum in colour lose rank if they don't play, as Platinum-ranked players have to 'Chase the leader', i.e. Play more games than the leader. Stupidly, you can't see who the leader is, or what the highest rank is, because there's no worldwide leaderboards... only leaderboards for your friends list.
