    There are 2 ways to get this.

    1)Head over to a forum and hook up with a group of people.

    a)http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=16...
    or
    b)Boosting And Matchmaking Forum

    2) Grab a couple of friends, the more the better, and take turns hosting matches, one at a time. If you go this route, here are a few tips:
    a) Start at a time when you can get European and North American players in your match.
    b) The most popular game-type is Attack & Defend on Calypso Casino.
    c) Player matches draw more people than ranked matches.
    d) Players tend to not join empty games. Have your friends stick around as bait.
    e) Keep starting matches even if you don't have 16. You need to keep the random players in your game, and they'll leave if you keep them at the lobby screen for too long.

    I recently ran two sessions for this achievement, and helped probably 30 people get it in all. The 2nd session went a lot smoother than the 1st, thanks to the lessons I had learned.

    The main issues you will run into are:
    1) Coordination: You need a minimum of 17 people to do this, and I would really recommend 20+ to account for people who aren't able to connect to each other. This means you would need 3 or more parties, which can be very difficult to coordinate, so much so that I wouldn't bother with parties at all as a method of coordination. With a few simple steps for people to follow, and a little planning beforehand, you can get this done smoothly with no parties required at all (other than just to shoot the breeze).
    2) Connection Issues: With 16 people trying to connect, you will likely run into a few pairs who can't connect when certain people are hosting. I would recommend everyone do whatever they can to have an OPEN NAT. If you have multiple xboxes on one connection, it's entirely possible that people will be able to connect when one is hosting but not the other, so you may want to try swapping profiles between them. (We ran into this during our sesion).

    So, onto the specifics:

    BEFORE THE SESSION
    1) Everyone should print out the instructions or memorize them so they know what they need to do, since you won't be relying on voice chat.
    2) Print/write a list of the order people will be going for the achievement in. It's up to you what order, we used the order people signed up in. And of course, if you have people who are just there to help out, thank them profusely, but don't include them in your list :).
    The session coordinator may want to post a list on TA or send it via XBL to everyone right before the session.
    3) Get enough people. I would really recommend 20+ if you can swing it. You should be able to do that many people in an hour or a little more. And more people will actually make it faster to a point, as you won't be needing to retry failed connections, etc.

    DURING THE SESSION
    There are 3 different things you might be doing.
    1) Your Turn: You are hosting the current match.
    2) On Deck: You are the next one who will be hosting a match. This will only apply if you have at least 18 people, but will make things go a lot faster, since you will be able to jump right into the next lobby, rather than waiting for someone to go through the two loading screens to set it up.
    3) Everyone Else: You are just a warm body, filling up a lobby.

    ON DECK
    Create a Player Match (NOT RANKED)
    Player Slots: 16
    Type: Retrieval
    Private Slots: none
    Dedicated Server: Yes

    YOUR TURN
    As soon as you have 16 people, launch the match. As soon as the achievement pops, exit the match. This will kick everyone out.

    EVERYONE ELSE
    Keep searching for a 16 player max retrieval match until you see one hosted by the next player on the list. Connect to it. If you have get a connection error, try two more times to connect then go ahead and connect to the next person on the list. (the on deck person)
    When the match ends (it will say something like you lose connection), cross that person off then search again for next person.

    THE COORDINATOR
    I'd recommend having a small party with the current host, and the next few on deck, just in case they have any trouble setting up the match. Once they have their achievement, you will need to eventually have them leave the party to make room for new ones.
