This achievement requires you to win 50 Capture Airfields matches. Both player and ranked matches count towards the total.

Only two players are required to start a Team Battle match, so you can also boost this in the same way as Dogfight if you like.

If you're boosting this (you probably are) the fastest way to do it is to set the match length to 3 minutes and have uneven teams (3:1, 4:1, etc.) To select your team, when in the lobby screen, press Y and change your team from Random to a specific team. The team with more than one person should be getting the win, giving a win to all members of that team.

I recommend using a map with two airfields -- there is one in Britain that is pretty straight forward. (I'll update with the map name next time I boost this game.) I also recommend using big bombers if you have difficulty landing, they are slower but easier to land (less updraft effect at ground level).

Scoring is based upon the duration an airfield is held, and also kills/crashes. My recommendation is to have the losing team continually crash, and for the winning team to capture an airfield (or two if you can manage it). If you're good at this, you can have each team land, with the winner landing slightly before the loser.

This is a good time to work on this achievement:

It may also be useful to go after a few unlocks while doing these matches. Here are some you might consider working on:

* IL-4 (win 10 Capture Airfields with the Yak-1B)
* P-51 D-5 - 6 machine guns, 10 x HVAR (kill 50 planes in Capture Airfields with the P-51 D-5)
* LA-7 - 2 cannons, 2 x 100 kg bombs (win 20 Capture Airfields with the LA-7)
* Fw 190 F-8 (win 20 Capture Airfields or Strike with the Ju 87 D-3)
* Spitfire Mk XVI (kill 100 planes with the Spitfire series)
* Bf 109 K-4 (kill 100 planes with the Bf 109 series)

You can also use these matches to work on the unlocks that require matches played or won, and to work towards a win with every plane.
