This achievement has confused many players so I will try to describe it as easy and clear as I can.

First: You can only get this achievement via Throwdown challenges (no normal game invites). This requires an Online Pass in order to use the online mode.

Second: You must turn on the Throwdown option when you are playing the single player mode (arcade, time attack ect.). This can be done by pressing X before choosing the Single/Tag option. You DON´T have to win these challenges.

Third: You can get this achievement even when you got 50 invites from the same person. You DON´T have to accept 50 different throwdown challenges.

Make sure you played one of your friends in a lobby match first and add each other to your Fighter Lists (this can be done while being at the lobby screen by pressing Y and then selecting the option to add players to your list).

If you are going for the achievement, select Training Mode and choose whatever character/stage you like (I did this while playing the Command challenges). Then let your friend/partner select Online Mode -> Fighter List. They should mark your name and press A in order to send you a Throwdown challenge. This will take some tries since the Onlne mode itself and the throwdown system seem to be quite weird/unfinished.

If your partner shouldn´t be able to send you a challenge, tell them to update your gamertag on their Fighter List. This is done by selecting the specific gamertag and then pressing RB. After about 5-10 tries it should work. Right at THIS moment you should be paying attenton to your bottom right corner of the screen. A small red-black icon should appear. You must press the BACK button right at this point in order to accept the challenge.

I got the achievement together with my partner today after about 4 hours while we only needed around 1,5 hours for myself since there were less players online in the later hours (around 8 pm in Europe). I can confirm that this method works. But beware that your partner will have to send you around 10+ challenges at some times because the mechanic doesn´t seem to work so well. You can always check your current progress by looking at your Fighter List since only throwdown matches will be listed there.

Hopefully this solution may helped you out a bit. If you are having any troubles or questions, feel free to ask. Many thanks for reading and good luck!
