How to unlock the Higher Ground achievement

    In order to get promoted, your crew needs to be in the green area of the 'tier status' bar. There are 2 things that contribute to this, your crew's score percentile and xp percentile.

    Percentile is where you're ranked for the particular challenges. If you're in the top say 2% for score, you're in the 98th percentile. It takes both of these percentiles and averages them. As long as you're in the green area when the challenge ends, you'll rank up and get the achievement.

    The easiest promotion would be starting in a crew at bronze and going to silver.

    Edit: People are reporting issues with this and other rivals achievements unlocking.
    Edit2: If you go to the Rivals Page and hit Orange/RB, it should pop the achievement. Note this only seems to work during the 'cooldown' period between challenges.

    RossticusI've been on twice today, expecting some blips, but nothing has appeared. I checked my teammates' achievements and only the person who contributed the most had them unlocked.

    EDIT: Harmonix are aware (

    RossticusForget everything I just said.

    Solution: Go on the Rivals Hub, press RB or Orange, which brings up the results of the previous competition.

    skav00vieI didn't play the game during the whole 24-hour cooldown period. I signed on to see I got promoted and earned a crew badge, but no achievements. Pressing RB/Orange now brings up the new weekly challenge, so I guess there is no way to view challenge results until next week.

    thenixhex311doesn't retroactively unlock either. Was able to login during the cooldown this week to unlock the individual bagdges (which I DID get this week) but the week following was promoted to gold.

    RedsleeyConfirmed that the badge achievements only unlock during the cooldown and only for ones gained in that week. I finally got my individual and crew badge but not this one, since I remained in the silver bracket and did not get promoted this week, but had previously.
