    The Solution:

    You start off in the lowest tier and need 7 points to progress, you earn points but doing well in the races, however your points can go up or down dependant on your finishing position.

    Ideally, you want to win a number of events in succession, as even if you place 2nd, you can see your points total go down (as this happened to me a number of times when on 6 points)

    Winning is down to your driving ability vs the ability in the rest of the lobby.
    The only tip in this instance is to play the game and try and get better, and/or hope for a lobby with some inexperienced players

    The Warning:

    I had ranked up to tier 6, which is enough to unlock the achievement, however the achievement did not unlock and it glitched on me.

    I have a very strong suspicion this is the same type of glitch that occurred on the Dirt Rally online achievements.

    I had this a number of times with the Wager achievement and some others while I played Dirt Rally.

    Essentially, if you have an ongoing championship in you career (or even online on Dirt Rally), it somehow prevents online achievements from unlocking correctly.

    I think this is the case as I had the final Rally championship in career in progress, before switching over to do some online stuff, exactly the same as I had done on Dirt Rally when I had glitching issues.

    The Update:

    I managed to get this to unlock by doing the following:

    I abandoned my in progress career event, I had no other career events in progress.

    I started online events in tier 6, I did a few races and deliberately totalled my car and/or retired to make sure I came last, then I did 2 events where I left the session, this gives -7 drop in points, but can also trigger a temporary multiplayer ban

    Back in tier 7, I won 3 races in a row and ranked up to tier 6 again, this time it popped, as it should when you get the tier 6 point bar

    For extra info:

    I have 2 x weekly online events completed but pending the payout (this would have caused glitches in Dirt Rally)

    I did not have todays Dirt Daily event or Owners Club event completed

    I have not started the Monthly event

    Hopefully that's enough info for anyone who has a similar thing happen get it to pop :)

    Whilst trying some different ways to progress with this achievement we have found an easier and quicker way.

    The easiest way we found was to have a group of 4 start match making.

    Once the event has started and the race has begun retire from the race straight away.

    If any of the group are going for the promotion achievement "Up and Up" -

    they need to retire last.

    Once you have retired it will count down and launch the second race.

    Do the same again, retire in the order you wish to receive points.

    With loading times this can be done in roughly 2 minutes for 2 PVP events to register towards the achievements.

    I think the person who wins the event will get +2 points, 2nd place will get +1, third 0, fourth -1.

    So if one person is going for the Up and Up achievement, let them get it first, then once they have popped it, move onto the next.

    I hope you guys find this easier than previous ways.

    Note: Make sure you are all in the same handling style. Changing your handling style in the Options > Preferences to Gamer gives your more visibility for match making.

    Sipuli91So we had a boosting session and it seems like you can only unlock the achievement when actually finishing the race (one player had to rank up twice because of this while I wasn't getting any points despite getting xp and credits for finishing 1st aka retiring last. 2 others had no issues as we were playing against randoms and actually finishing the races).
