    Credit for this method goes to DigestedGolem, who posted the basics in the 2-3 star thread, and Zeh Marcoss who helped streamline the process. toast

    If you're trying to boost this, you can definitely do it with as few as 3 players. It will take a while, of course, but it's a sure thing.

    This must be done in the Online World Cup.

    If you have alts, it'll be easier since it takes a lot of games. The good news is that one way or another, quit-outs count.

    Remember as you go through this to use teams that will let you earn these at the same time:

    and this will pop automatically:

    You can also pick a team to help you win this one (just look for a team that has a terrible community average, since 3 opponent quit-outs will net you a goal differential of +9, since forfeits count as 3-0 wins). It will pop after the Group Stage.

    Here's the step-by-step:

    At every step, make sure that Players A, B and C are the SAME LEVEL. Don't play 2.5 stars vs. 3 stars or 2 stars; they won't match as easily. When matching, make sure that both players change the search settings (3rd choice down) to Manual and search at the same time. It'll be obvious if you match. If you don't, remember that a 2-1 record will still pretty much guarantees a pass-through, so quit on your opponent and give them an easy win.

    The basic idea is for the players to keep losing to A (by quitting), and then pushing each other up the ladder. It will take 14 games for each person to win the Cup once. Here's the process for all three to get their first Cups:

    1) A over B.
    2) A over C. C forfeits the tournament, restarting from the beginning at 0-0.

    That's an important step.

    3) B over A. A is into the Round of 16 at 2-1, B is 1-1 and C is 0-0.
    4) B over C. B advances at 2-1, C is 0-1.
    5) A over B (Round of 16). B is 0-0, C is 0-1.
    6) C over B. C is 1-1, B forfeits the tournament, and is 0-0.

    ***Notice this pattern: every time the 2 teams in the group are at 1-1 and 0-1, the 0-1 team should forfeit to advance faster. It's a waste of time for a team to go to 2 losses.***

    7) C over B. C advances at 2-1, B is 0-1.
    8) A over C (Quarters). B is 0-1, C is 0-0.
    9) B over C. B is 1-1, C forfeits the tournament, and is 0-0.
    10) B over C. B advances (2-1), C is 0-1.
    11) A over B (Semis).
    12) C over B. C is 1-1, B forfeits the tournament, and is 0-0.
    13) C over B. C advances, B is 0-1.
    14) A wins the Cup. A is 0-0, B is 0-1, C is 0-0.

    IF YOU ARE SOLO BOOSTING... you may want to switch to a different rated team to work toward another achievement. If so, all teams must be the same level, so reset everyone.

    IF YOU ARE GROUP BOOSTING... follow these steps through, and when the third person gets it, begin at 1. If just boosting Cups for the 5x achievement, the person at 0-1 will be the next winner (B in this case).

    B will now win the Cup.

    15) B over A.
    16) B over C. B advances, A is 0-1, C is 0-1.
    17) C over A. C is 1-1, A forfeits the tournament, and is 0-0.
    18) C over A. C advances, A is 0-1.
    19) B over C (R of 16).
    20) A over C. A is 1-1, C forfeits the tournament, and is 0-0.
    21) A over C. A advances, C is 0-1.
    22) B over A (Quarters).
    23) C over A, A forfeits the tournament, and is 0-0.
    24) C over A, C advances, A is 0-1.
    25) B over C (Semis).
    26) A over C. A is 1-1, C forfeits the tournament, and is 0-0.
    27) A over C. A advances, C is 0-1.
    28) B wins the Cup. A is 0-0, B is 0-0, C is 0-1.

    C will now win the Cup.

    29) C over B. A is 0-0, B is 0-1, C is 1-1.
    30) C over A. C advances.
    31) A over B. A is 1-1, B forfeits the tournament, and is 0-0.
    32) A over B. A advances, B is 0-1.
    33) C over A (R of 16).
    34) B over A. B is 1-1. A forfeits the tournament, and is 0-0.
    35) B over A. B advances, A is 0-1.
    36) C over B (Quarters).
    37) A over B. A is 1-1, B forfeits the tournament, and is 0-0.
    38) A over B. A advances, B is 0-1.
    39) C over A (Semis).
    40) B over A. B is 1-1, A forfeits the tournament, and is 0-0.
    41) B over A. B advances, A is 0-1.
    42) C wins the Cup. A is 0-1, B is 0-0, C is 0-0.

    Repeat these 14 steps to get the next person the Cup.

    Good hunting! toast

    This must be unlocked in the Online FIFA World Cup mode.

    I would strongly suggest you organise a group of 5+ like minded gamers and boost this achievement. To ensure the matchmaking puts you with your fellow boosters, search for a game with manual controls which is done after selecting your kit but before pressing search.

    We selected who was to win the achievement first and then just forfeited following kick off whenever we were drawn against that person. The other boosters would organise to advance into the knockout stages and onwards to allow for easier matchmaking when the desired person was through the group stages.

    Rinse and repeat until everyone has the achievement.

    One thing we found was that it was possible to be matched with a booster who isn't in your exact round but the matchmaking favoured pitting people who were in the knockout stages together and people who were in the group stages together.

    For example, if I was in the final, I could very easily connect to a player who was in the stage of 16 or beyond but I would really struggle connecting to someone who was still in the group stage.

    Personally I used Tanzania to unlock this achievement. My fellow boosters all used a different team ranging from the Faroe Islands to Namibia. Just ensure your kits don't clash.

    Hope this helps.

    TrueBlade94Just got to the final with Tanzania and lost on penalties... Absolutely devastated! If you could win a World Cup with spirit and desire then those 11 African's would have won it with ease! The Colombians got lucky in that final!
