This achievement is difficult and will likely only get harder as time goes on. What makes this so difficult is that the top 1% of players is currently less than 10 in many cases and is starting to making its way to 20 as players continue to add the game. While that makes it sound like there are more spots for the achievement, the times to get up to those positions are only getting harder. Why?

The simple answer is that people are pushing harder for the Rainbow Medal times. The Rainbow Medals are extremely difficult and require excellent control and understanding of the game mechanics. In some cases, the precision to get a Rainbow Medal does not leave much leeway to cut down the time much further. Additionally, some of the players are continuing to cut down the time as far as they can which leaves less spots/chances for "regular" players to reach the 1% mark. Here are some tips I can offer, but even then this isn't going to be easy:

-Earn Gold on the Level and set the ghost to Rainbow. While the Rainbow ghost isn't perfect, it does most of the things to cut down on its time. This can give you an idea of how you need to play

-Look online for videos of other Rainbow runs. Some players are already speedrunning the game and posting their Rainbow level runs. Some of their tactics can help cut down precious hundredths of seconds (or more).

-Look for levels with less Rainbow finishers. These will likely be the harder levels, but here is the logic (as flawed as it may sound). Some players (myself included) realize they won't likely get all the Rainbow medals, so after they earn this achievement, they might not pursue the rainbows in later levels. This leaves some spots later in the game less competitive. It will still not be easy, but possibly more realistic to aim for them.

Beyond this, there isn't much to say. Advocating the addition of "dummy" accounts, which could increase the spots available is inefficient to say the least (100 players = 1 new spot in the top 1%). This is a skill based achievement and will remain difficult. Best of luck to everyone going after this achievement.
