    In my opinion, this is the 2nd hardest Team Fortress achievement behind Hardcore. The easiest way to get this achievement would be to get a group of friends together large enough to earn the achievement. If you don't have enough friends with this game, sign up on the forum's achievement trading thread and build a group to get the achievement. Or, if all else fails, try telling everyone that I was going to friend request them to go for With Friends Like These... and hope for the best.

    Not really a unique solution, but now that the gaming sessions feature has been added to this site, obtaining "With Friends Like These" is much easier. Make a session for it, preferably a week or a few days in advance, and set for 8 players or more (or unlimited for that matter) needed. People seem eager to get this achievement, so you should be able to find people willing to help out.

    If you'd like, you can add other TF2 achievements to the list (such as Flamethrower or Turret), to broaden the chances that you'll find people interested. Just be certain that everyone in the session has added each other before the match starts, and you probably will all want to be in a party to communicate easier.

    As pointed out before, you need to complete a full round of the game type for the achievement to unlock (i.e. One team must capture the flag 3 times to end the round at 2Fort). As long as no one leaves the match mid-game, everything should go fine.

    Good luck, and have fun!

    The only real way to get this achievement would be to either have a lot of people on your friends list who have The Orange Box, or start a session here on TA. Don't make the session for the next day, make it a few days away. Due to the rarity of this achievement, set the # of players to Unlimited, and many people will join. Also, joining into one big party is a must.

    Now, here are somethings you have to remember. You need to complete a full round (capture the flag 3 times, gain control/defend control points) for the achievement to pop up. It doesn't just appear. Also, make sure noone leaves early, as that can mess things up. Do all that, and it should turn out great.
