Team Destruction matches are quite rare, but they do come around, apart from the game telling you it's a Team Destruction, they can be further distinguished by the fact there are no flags, on either team. So the only way for the match to end is by everyone dying on one team, or the timer running out.

Also, despite the achievement description, you do not need to have the highest damage in the match, nor even on your own team. Many people (see comments) have unlocked this by causing comparably low damage. Personally I unlocked this by having the third highest damage in the match, and second on my team, these are the results of the match where the achievement unlocked:

A Tiger II on my team = 3,194 damage dealt
A T-29 on their team = 3,059 damage dealt
Me in my IS-2 = 2,619 damage dealt

It seems that you definitely do need to survive and win the match however.

This can be very luck-based, but obviously playing in a tank you're familiar with and one that can dish out serious damage is beneficial. You may want to combine this with the new crew rank achievements, but you can unlock this with a crew of any rank.

An easy way to do this is with a good Tier X, like a WT auf E 100, G.W. E 100 (or any good German Tier X), the Russian Obj. 268, IS-7, an American T110, or the British FV215b and FV4005 have the highest (non-arty) damage of any Tier X. By then you should have a high rank crew with some perks like Deadeye to help.

If you don't have a Tier X, or any great high tier tank that you love, then here are some of the best tanks through the tiers, those that will ensure high damage while also keeping you alive:

Tier I: British Med I, American T22 Proto, Jap R Otsu
Tier II: German Pz.Jag. I, French D1, British Med II
Tier III: Any German Pzs, Russian SU-76, Premium Locust
Tier IV: French B1, German Marder, DW2 and Hetzer, British Matilda, Russian T-50
Tier V: Russian KV-1S and KV-1, SU-85, American T1 Heavy, British Churchill
Tier VI: German Nashorn and VK.36.01 H, Russian KV 2 and KV-85, American M6
Tier VII: American T-29 and T25 AT, British Black Prince and Challenger, Any German
Tier VIII: German Rhm,-B. WT, Russian IS-3 and KV-4, American T28s, British AT15
Tier IX: Any German especially the WT, Russian Obj 704, British Tortoise and Conway, and the American T95, M103 and T30.

One strategy is to use a good high damage Arty, such as an S-51, M41, Grille or GW Panther etc, get a good angle on the map and stay back in a concealed location, this gives you a higher chance of survival, while also giving you good chance for high damage.

The same kind of principle can be applied with a good Tank Destroyer; get into a good position, stay hidden and unleash the fury. With any luck you'll get a reasonably good team and some major damage, and since you won't be in the thick of the action, you have a higher chance of surviving.

You could however, just go in guns blazing, keep causing damage, but don't just go in recklessly, try to stay with cover, use your teammates and flank. Look for weak points and take the damage from your teammates, if you see an enemy with low health, it's better to go for someone else, you need damage not kills.

This could also be boosted, with some patience, get a group of 6-8 together, wait for a Team Destruction match, everyone stay back and let the random players kill each other, then allow the one going for the achievement to kill everyone on the opposing team. But to be honest, this will most likely be attained while going for the rank 10 crew achievement.
