    UPDATE: 3-15-18: This currently works in non-ranked matches as well, specifically the 1v1 playlist as seen in the comments. Playlist changes and updates have occurred and possibly help here!
    NOTE: Thanks to 'Master Jason', you unfortunately must play ranked matches for this achievement.

    Fortunately, Blitz matches don't take very long, unless you get addicted like me and try to win every game!

    The blitz play modes available have fluctuated since the game launched, so there might not be a 1v1 mode, just pick whichever you prefer.

    If you don't care about winning, just search for any mode, preferably 1v1 Blitz, and then just don't leave your home base. The enemy should win in less than 3 minutes easily.

    Just in case you want to try to win every game, I found this Atriox deck simply devastatingly effective--I had something like a 10 win streak a couple nights ago with it!
    Start with two Banshees and a Marauder, and the deck something like this:
    Banshee
    Elite Rangers
    Blisterback
    Locust
    Scarab
    Atroix's healing power
    Engineer
    Marauder
    Elite Blisterback
    Bloodtheft Locust
    Wraith
    Armored Wraith
    I have to update this once I load up the game again, I wrote these from memory and forgot the exact spellings.

    The Banshee/Marauder combination mashes almost any starting enemy combo, and if you can get the engineer in early or another banshee it's really fun!

    lVlaster Jasonjust a bonus tip for those who are going for this achievement, you will need to play in a ranked game not a causal online blitz game otherwise you will not get any progress towards the the achievement. learnt this by seeing my percentage not going up while playing unranked 3v3

    iMaginaryyThat may have just been a case of the trackers in this game not always updating immediately or properly.

    Of the three choices currently available:
    Ranked 3v3
    1v1
    Ranked 2v2

    I was playing 1v1 and the tracker was updating.
    The other two had the qualifying match diamonds, whilst this one did not.

    Shadow 00 FoxIt could well have changed, as they changed the blitz playlists a lot since I wrote most of these solutions...

    WhiskeyCharlieI'm not sure what has happened, I've played over 25 games all ranked and the acheivement has not unlocked. I also noticed that the tracker for the kills achevo and energy crates has not increased either. Quite disappointing.
