This can be boosted with a friend.
Set-up a lobby with the following:
Lobby Type: Public (can be set to invite - but the windows 10 invite system is glitchy)
Region: Not important
Game Mode: Death Match
Map Type: Hill Country
Map Size: Tiny
Reveal Map: All Visible
Starting Age: Post-Iron Age
Victory Type: Standard
Speed: Very Fast
Under Extra Settings
Tick the following boxes: Team Together, Full Tech Tree & Lock Teams
The game needs to be a minimum of 5 minutes long.
You can check how long the game has gone on for by pressing: F11
Game time will be at the top right of the screen.
(If very fast is enabled this will be less than real time played, in-game time is what counts)
best method seems to be villager rush.
player who is to win builds 1 house and then recruits a further 5 villagers (fills the pop. limit to 8/8) then attack the other player.
It is best to not recruit any more and just finish the game with the 8 villagers.
This is due to the achievement being slightly time locked in-game, winning to quick will not pop the achievement.
I'm currently unable to launch AoE:DE - until I find a fix I'm unable to boost
If anyone needs help with boosting this achievement please message me via xbox message system - contacting me via TA will not work.
I'm on most days about 21:00pm BST for a few hours.
If requesting boost, please read the guide. Dont then ask me "what to do" as it all is explained above. I tend to go AFK once the game has started to carry on with what I'm playing on Xbox.
I offer boosting for both this Version and the delisted 2018 version - please state which version in the message.
I've been having trouble with the message system lately - it doesn't always show me new messages or pop a notification when I receive one. If you see me online and I dont respond I'll try to get back to you as soon as possible.
