Epic Achievements [Post your stories here!]

So you think you're skilled, eh? Well I got news for you bub!
Achievements are in a completely different league than wins. Sure wins show off consistent skill in the game, but can you pull off achievements with flair? Can you pull off the most flamboyant achievement unlock in quick match?

My Epic achievement was with a ghost, my base was about to be #*%%d by my protoss opponent. He had a mothership an a ton of units. I pre-set a nuke at the ramp to my base. He ran into it and bam! I get my "I see dead units," "Nuclear Launch Detected," and "Unbreakable" achievements all at once (I countered and won after that massive wipe).

So can you pull off an epic chain or simultaneous achievement unlock. Can you?

I guess since it's like a chain. I mean I could have pulled off "Professionals Have Standards" with the same ghost, but I just wanted to win :)

One time I was on the bio lab map. One of my allies had been cheesed and had took his CC to a nearby gold. He put up a sensor tower at the entrance to his overrun main. We were horrified when the tower picked up about 100 hits. seeing as my expo was right next to the entrance, I rallied my 200/200 hydralisks with 3-3 upgrades. I then built about 20 spine crawlers infront of the bridge to his main. Then an army of zealots tried to rush through this defense and were massacred as I quickly collected the meatgrinder achievment. We then rushed in to find that the guy had built a whole base there. As we destroyed it efortlessly, I saw about 20 battle cruisers coming around to attack my main, containing my hydra den, hive, and all my other support structures. I desperately sent my hydras over to my base. When the smoke cleared, my main was untouched and only 20 of my hydras remained, but the battle cruisers had been routed. Then, a massive force of lings came and tried to knock down the wall blocking entry into the large area that connected our mains. Since the already had a lot of kills from the zealots, I soon had the unbreakable achievement. We eventually went on to sweep the game.

I got the same thing as AC, plus its rainin blood when my opponent was droppin troops outside my base via medivacs. i guess he was waitin to rush, because he wasnt movin in. so i snuck my ghost up to the cliff overlookin his position, set a nuke on him, and enjoyed a sweet victory shortly afterwards. i was surprised at the its rainin blood one, but foun out on the replay he had three full medivacs on their way and got caught in the blast as they positioned to unload troops
