I play games, get appearances/hits, all that, but they don’t count. I can’t get higher ovr because my badge is still bronze and can’t progress. It works fine in DD though, but I hate using a 65 ovr in DD when I can just upgrade it in RTTS, but it won’t work.
I would try swapping archetypes for a game or two and swapping back. I know the diamond ones are really grindy especially if you are just doing rtts repeatable missions. Unless you are doing the Sim cheese method and even then it can take a while.
