Note: Don't even attempt this unless you're ready and willing to spend a MAJOR amount of cash for this game.

Unfortunately there's no real guide or optimal way to achieve this without paying and no suggestions to avoid doing it that way, the only thing i can do is share the information about the leveling requirements i know so far so you can see the reality of how things are for this achievement.

Requirements will be displayed in this format:
Level - The requirements needed to upgrade to said level.
Pins - Number of duplicated needed to upgrade (they're removed after each upgrade and you'll need to get more for the next level).
Coins - Number of silver coins required to upgrade.
XP - The experience points you're given after leveling up (these level up your rank/player level).

COMMON PINS
1 - N/A - N/A - N/A
2 - 10 - 50 - 4
3 - 15 - 120 - 5
4 - 23 - 220 - 7
5 - 36 - 350 - 9
6 - 57 - 500 - 12
7 - 90 - 850 - 16
8 - 140 - 1,400 - 22
9 - 230 - 2,400 - 30
10 - 360 - 4,000 - 42
11 - 560 - 7,000 - 58
12 - 840 - 12,000 - 81
13 - 1,400 - 20,000 - 110
14 - 2,200 - 34,000 - 150
15 - 3,600 - 58,000 - 220
16 - 5,600 - 99,000 - 300
17 - 8,900 - 170,000 - 430
18 - 14,100 - 290,000 - 600
19 - 22,400 - 490,000 - 840
20 - 35,500 - ? - ?

I guess aiming for a Common pin would the ideal thing to do but keep in mind it isn't that simple since you have to completely rely on crates giving you tons of duplicate pins for that one pin you're trying to level up.
KanchanaburiI want to point out that the one person who has this achievement, ALREADY had it at the time of release, if you see, he got it Aug12 which was before the game was even out. Meaning, he did not get it legit, probably one of the testers or programers. So if you are pissed at this game, call him out to ease your pain.

AshamanNDJust to be certain - does this mean all types of Pins have a max level of 20?
Posted by AshamanND on 06 Sep 19 at 20:04
bartlannoeyeNumbers are off. Pins needed for common lvl 12: 890
Posted by bartlannoeye on 08 Sep 19 at 12:23
The SCHWARTZ 00AshamanND, I'm sure they all go up to 20, except maybe the Legendary ones.
Posted by The SCHWARTZ 00 on 09 Sep 19 at 07:21
eLiTeMC251From my understanding on games that are similar to this (Battle Islands: Commanders, Clash Royale, etc) the levels max out differently based on the rarity of the troops with the higher the rarity the lower the max out level.

KashThePriestConsidering gold pins are 4000 for level 2 upgrade and quite rare to get and bronze pins are 4000 at level 10 and are practically given away for doing anything, aiming to max out bronze pins is definitely the way to go
Posted by KashThePriest on 15 Sep 19 at 17:15
Drazer76Though look at the number of pins needed for bronze higher levels. That’s what will be the problem.
Even a Legendary Crate only gives <4000 bronze pins.

What numbers of pins are needed for golds? (Assuming they don’t go all the way to 20 if course, those numbers are potentially lower..)

Ra1D3nHUNSince yesterday there is 1 more player who has this achievement. I hope he will come to share some info about levels.
Posted by Ra1D3nHUN on 16 Sep 19 at 08:31
KashThePriestI think knowing is half the battle, knowing what needs to be done so you can hop away at it

xPIGZxi known blow fish, He has mostly lvl 18 commons, not sure what pin he maxed out but ill ask. The other guy has to be a programmer cause i have never seen him before on the game
Posted by xPIGZx on 17 Sep 19 at 23:20
Ra1D3nHUNCould you as well share some info for the level 17-20 pins? Amounts, cost of upgrades, experiance gained?

MCSS AerocoupeI was working on this tracking to estimate the totals needed, and can confirm Hectorlo’s numbers for 9-12 are spot on for Common pins. Therefore, I am estimating the following pins and coins needed with XP given as follows for a Common pin:

16 - 5,600 - 99,000 - 300
17 - 8,900 - 166,000 - 410
18 - 14,000 - 278,000 - 560
19 - 22,000 - 465,000 - 770
20 - 35,000 - 778,000 - 1,060

Total 1-20 - 95,109 - 1,926,910 - 3,863

So yeah, by my estimates it will take over 95,000 duplicate pins and over 1,925,000 coins to upgrade a Common pin to level 20. As for other rarities, I’m afraid to think about them. If going by Gears 4 & Gears 5 Horde/Escape cards, rarity would have no impact on changing max level or cards (pins) needed. However, I have not done the research to verify that.

EDIT/ADDITION:

After typing my post, curiosity got the better of me. I have enough data to estimate Rare and Epic pins. But there is some difference in numbers needed, so can’t be sure what either set’s max is. Going to estimate on the assumption that it is 20 like with Commons. Using same format as Hect0rlo, but only on last confirmed numbers, other than totals.

The SCHWARTZ 00Level 20 epics.....

Insert *Wheeze meme* here
Posted by The SCHWARTZ 00 on 19 Sep 19 at 08:23
Lambent LailI currently have a level 17 Frag Grenade (common) that shows 14,100 dupes to get to level 18. I will try to remember to look at the upgrade cost and experience gain when I get there.
Posted by Lambent Lail on 19 Sep 19 at 17:59
thepack1221Regardless of exact numbers, this is just insanity.
Posted by thepack1221 on 20 Sep 19 at 20:26
xPIGZxonly commons go to 20 Epics to 12 and rare to 16
Posted by xPIGZx on 23 Sep 19 at 19:45
Lambent LailDo you have a source for that PIGZ? By that logic, Legendaries should take even less
Posted by Lambent Lail on 24 Sep 19 at 11:03
Lambent LailLevel 18 Common takes 14,100 dupes, costs 290,000 coins and gains 600 xp

Level 19 requires 22,400 dupes.

F TANKLol...how the **** are you supposed to realistically supposed to get that many duplicates, even if you pay and especially if there's no guarentee you will get what you need?

They are going to kill their own userbase
