Ok, got it too . I changed the category from "Melee" to "Custom" and then I could change the A.I.'s difficulty to "Insane". I played against 2 Insane A.I.s because thats the last one I needed. I put them in one team against me, but we ended up ALL in the north team and as our minerals alltogether were at 15k we ALL were victorious AND I got the achievement. LOL!

Worked for me! I failed the first 5 or 6 times. The key for me, was to keep making probes from the original nexus, pushing them to the expos once I had 21 at my main. Also, after 3 bases up and 1 saturated, i would run a probe around the map between lava phases. I barely won so if I hadn't picked up those minerals it would have been another defeat. Good luck!
Edit: Also you MUST choose Custom instead of Melee.

Worked for me, the 1v3 was the hardest obviously, some tips I have are to try to get those nexus's warping in ASAP, if you get some mineral drops fast you can warp in one or two nexuses really early without having to stop probe production. Also once your main is saturated use it to send probes to your expansions (when lava isn't up) to get them saturated as fast as possible. Also really look around for those mineral drops they definitely make a big difference.

if you're having a trouble with 1v3 just play normal (EDIT: on burning tide) as whatever race you normally play as. mass up in the middle with the army, wait until the lava goes down, and then a-move into one of the enemy bases. or you could go like, mass void ray or something but i'm not sure that you have enough time to do so.
this only works if you can beat a very hard in 1v1, though

I had never played on that map before, but it was insanely easy. Just to ensure that I won, I never stopped pumping workers from my two safe bases (I think I had about 40 at each at the end) and I even made nexuses near two ramps by gold minerals and distance-mined up and down to put me over the top.
This is a fantastic find!

First, I did this achievement against 3 Very Hard - got the achievements. Then I continued to do the vs 4 Very Hard - had one of them on my Northern Team (not setup team - they were all against me), but he started gathering minerals for me as well being at my side. \o/
All was good, I won with several thousand due to 3 probes constantly scouting around for pickup-minerals, but I didn't get any achievements this time - therefore still lacking of the vs. 4.
Edit; Or maybe it's because one of the AI is actually winning (with me), since it's being on the Northern Team.
Anyhow, giving it another go. I'll double edit this, if it works this time.

Worked this time. Weird. Confirmed 17 February 2011.
