Hey I've found a bit of a quicker way than most methods I've seen so I've made a video guide to it hope you enjoy

UPDATE : Even Quicker way : Exp Gainer has two Scarabs and 1 base , Worker has all bases same as other method just keep making barracks have the scarabs the perfect distance away so it can destroy the buildings but not the base itself , Worker just keeps rebuilding in three building spots, Insanely fast got 1000 XP in 4mins just Ran out of supplies Over all took us 25 mins

GL have fun

Scarab boosting method (average of 22-23mn (not counting matching each other) and 33k XP per match).
33 wins to get the achievement, so around 33h of boosting (for both to get it).
Objective: XP gainer reachs 4 000 points.
Don't forget to choose "Deathmatch 1v1 low population"

Preparation (+/- 9mn)

XP gainer: choose Prophet of Regret
1. Start building a temple to have the Prophet.
2. Use Prophet to clear bases on the map for your boosting partner.
3. Keep one for yourself to build a 2d base.
4. As soon as your 2d base is built, build a scarab on your 1st base, then immediately destroy your 2d base for your boosting partner to get it.

Boosting partner: choose Forge
1. Build stations on main base.
2. Grab the other bases when cleared and build stations.

Attacking phase

XP gainer starts attacking with Scarab only when boosting partner reachs enough resources (depending on how much bases he has). 5 bases: 21k resources, 4 bases: 23k, 3 bases: 25k

XP gainer: position Scarab at the right distance so that it destroys only buildings, not the base. It should alternate really fast between 2 buildings. You don't have to do anything else.

Boosting partner: keep building barracks on the 2 spots destroyed.

Destroying bases phase

Boosting partner destroys his bases (depending on how many he has) when XP gainer get to a certain amount of points.
5 bases: 3 600
4 bases: 3 700
3 bases: 3 800
