As I am writing this I am a few wins away from winning this achievement.

Some suggestions to make this easier to grind out if you are having trouble.

*Play skirmish - you play with 4 other human players against 5 AI opponents, which aren't very smart and are easily beaten unless you're teammates are completely dysfunctional.

*Play 1-lane - the games tend to be faster since you only need to destroy 4 towers instead of 8. I can knock out a game in 10 minutes or so.

*Play a guardian for pushing (killing guardians/towers) instead of a support/healer type (these aren't very useful in Skirmish). Some of the strongest guardians in 1-lane skirmish are:

Aganduar
Mozgog
Haldir
Lugbol
Sauron

*Most of all, have fun - if you are enjoying Battlegrounds - play it! It may take a bit longer but who cares!

This is my solution that I posted for the 25 battleground wins. I tried skirmish and it isn't any faster when playing with AIs and I assume the method works as well/ possible faster with teammates, (but without communication and with randoms they can often screw up the process). My recommendation is to just keep playing battlegrounds since the actual difficulty doesn't change.

Solution:
I found a way that I can win every match in an average of 10 mins per.
I like to play in gold mode, 1-lane battlegrounds. The trick is to use Gothmog. He has a deployable Turret, (X button which you should level up as quickly as possible), that allows you to destroy the Towers while you hide in the brush and let the AI fight each other.
The trick is to camp in the brush by the enemy shrine, (also allowing you to retake it over every time the AI gets smart and takes it). As you play you will find a "sweet spot" to place the turret that allows it to hit the tower but that the tower cannot hit the turret. The timing to place the turret is in sinc with the final enemy soldier passing you to join the fight. You can also intercept the enemy soldiers to level quicker and give your AI guardians an upper hand, (A button attack will also help neutralize them).
Once you reach level 6 your profile 12 level command for Summon Archers will unlock, (obviously you need to unlock your command Tiers), which will give you the ability to place the turret, summon archers and attack the tower yourself, (Y button area attack will also devastate all around including tower). The cool thing is that if the turret is placed in the towers line of fire it will attack the turret first, followed by the archers and you will have plenty of time to destroy the tower.
Rinse and repeat with second tower and immediately take out their barracks after. Then camp at bottom and do the same thing around the final 3 towers.
I dont have the ability to capture my method at the moment otherwise I would upload a video. Suffice it to say, try it a few times with Gothmog and you should figure it out, get good at it, and win a match around 10 mins consistently.
