Try a rush mabe. Don't get me wrong though rushing is a cheap strategy and i always get mad a people for doing it, but its only a AI and its not online.

It didn't pop up with me. I most certainly got it under 10 minutes, i got it in 4 minutes (building 2 scarabs, and with them destroying the bases) but I didn't got this achievement. However, Penny Pincher DID unlock!

do a deathmatch game as anders and your enemy as the arbiter
and build mostly vultures and a few hawks

have 2 airpads on your base and the rest supply pads send your hawks to scout
the neutral bases and secure them while your vultures attack the AI

this is how i did it after trying 10 other rush forums (e.g wahthog,banshee,
leader and many more)this worked

good luck

I have tried every rush I can think of, and even some crazy ideas. It's like no matter what I do, the AI is ready for it. It's like it can build 5x as many units and take me out.

Is their no trick to this?
