You have a ranking which combines the defense score of your 4 Forts with your attack score in ranked conquest. Your defense score is purely dependent on the orcs you station in your forts and the upgrades of your forts, In the Vanilla version of the game, having all spots filled by max level 60 Orc Captains and having siege upgrades in each spot will give you a defense score of 570. If you calculate 570 x 4 forts = 2280 max defense score. That already brings you very close to the 2500 score needed to get the rank of Captain.

Now your attack score, unlike your defense score, has no direct link to your Orc Captains and upgrades. It's based on your performances online. If you conquer a fort and get gold, you get a 100 pts bump to your attack score, 25 pts for silver and no points for Bronze. Gold requires you to conquer the fort in less than 6 minutes and Silver in less than 10 minutes I think, timers will appear in the top right corner during your mission.

Now the combined score of your defense and attack must be 2500 to become Captain and unlock the achievement. Me personally I was well over 3000 and I had still not unlocked the achievement. It seems there is a bug where if you get the achievement while upgrading your forts on defense it does not unlock, I had to go online and play a game for it to unlock.
