    Boosting Method for this:
    Get a party of six (Gaming Sessions are usually your best bet)
    Have the host set up 1 round on Garden in Warzone, as its not a very popular map you should be ok finding each other.

    When the game begins everyone should run straight in to the greenhouse at the start to suicide.

    Even tho you get the message that the last player disconnected or suicided, the game is still counted as 'completed' this is by far the easiest and quickest way to get this achievement when boosting.

    These games take about a minute in total. In fact it takes longer for everyone to actually get in the game than it does to complete.

    I boosted this tonight and 3 or 4 of us all got this achievement using this method.

    This was always near impossible back in the day if you were in the UK, however I started this a few nights ago (April 2010) and have now unlocked it. War Machine, on Warzone, 5 rounds, 3 minute timeout - people will jump in.

    I unlocked this in the same game were the entire opposing team eventually disconnected, so "complete" probably just means don't go quiting, as host you need to see it out.

    This achievement can be very hard to attain on your own. When you set up a match it can be hard to get others into it if your the only person in the lobby. A key here is to have a friend or two play with you.

    Randoms that still play the game look for matches that are close to starting. If you set up a match tell your friends what map it is and the set amount of rounds.

    An easy way to distinguish your map from others for your friends to see is the round duration. Set it at a odd time such as 9 mins or 12 mins.
