    HOW I GOT It's Good to be the King :::: I made my NAT Strict, and started downloading/streaming movies on my Wii & PC. This made my connection REALLY crappy and ended up on Bot matches everytime as the leader for the first round. I stepped back and let my bots kill the opposing team for the round win. Exited back to lobby, relaunched again. Everytime got a fresh bot match & I was the leader for my team. Everytime.

    This achievement is much easier since TU3, just play the Guardian playlist, and when the game starts rush the enemy leader and kill him to become the leader if you are not the leader to start with, Once you are the leader plant grenades preferably frags but if not smoke and get one or two teammates to stay back and protect you while the other members of your team go and kill the enemy leader.

    This achievement is also achievable in Social, which is easier than Ranked matches as you will sometimes get in a match with just yourself and 9 Bot players. (Credit to UlteriorDesert for conformation of this)

    Panzer x360aYes this is true Phoenix, but all in all 1200 points for all the maps isn't bad, since I payed 2400 points for all the maps buying them on release day. If nothing else getting them in Ranked isn't bad at all just takes maybe 10 to 15 matches of playing it.

    Play enough games and you can't fail to get this. Even if you never manage to kill the enemy leader thereby ensuring you are leader in the next round, you will get leader randomly in the first round of the match once every few games. There is no system to who starts as leader. I have seen people with the highest rank get leader as well as the lowest rank.

    Guardian is also a good mode to get your experience for the rank achievements. A good points to experience ratio and infinite respawns (as long as your leader is alive) means this is a good way to rise the ranks quickly.
