Recently a team I was on managed to top the 2v2 ladder ( I think we were number 1 for around 26 hours or so) yet we never received the trophy for it, is this normal and if so how do you get the trophy?
Normal, has occurred before and there are players with #1 but no trophy. You need to be nr 1 at the right time, not for x hours. Which, if I recall right, is GMT +0 @ 00:00. If you have #1 for 24 hours, then you should not be able to miss it, except in the rare event that warzone has a server issue. Also, I think you have to be joined at the time, so if your partner leaves the 2v2 ladder, you can't get the trophy even if you have #1 rank.
