A new achievement season (Season 8) started Tuesday, September 25. For Season 8, a number of factors—including an incorrect calculation of the previous season’s Laurels—necessitated a reboot of the Laurel system. (You may see this reflected in-game when reviewing the History section of the Achievement Grades window.)
Since achievements are periodically added to and retired from the game, when a new season starts your Laurel is re-calculated based on currently obtainable content and goals. As such, while the point total displayed when opening the Achievement window represents an accurate record of your character’s in-game accomplishments, it is not necessarily the number being used to determine your Laurel. (To see that number, hover over the displayed Laurel for a few seconds.)
As of the start of Season 8, the current number of eligible achievement points is 15025. If some of your unlocked achievements were moved to “Legacy” status, you may need to complete new achievements to regain your previous Laurel.
To earn a Bronze Laurel, a character needs 20% or more of the available points (around 3005).
To earn a Silver Laurel, a character needs 40% or more of the available points (around 6010).
To earn a Gold Laurel, a character needs 60% or more of the available points (around 9015).
To earn a Diamond Laurel, a character needs 80% or more of the available points (around 12020).
To earn a Champion Laurel, a character needs 95% or more of the available points (around 14275).
NOTE: Laurel calculations are based on an internal percentage, and due to rounding issues may not correspond exactly to the numbers shown for each tier. In some cases, the game may show 0% remaining to reach a new tier when you really have 0.4% or less. When this happens, unlocking one more achievement should suffice to award the Laurel.
