Defend the beach without losing any walls.

Defense of the Ancients is a battleground achievement based in Strand of the Ancients. To be awarded this achievement, the player's faction must prevent the opposing faction from destroying the walls protecting the beach.

How to complete this achievement

As the beach walls can only be damaged through the use of siege vehicles, the first step is for the defenders to storm the beach and destroy the vehicles on the docks. Once the vehicles have been destroyed, the defenders must keep the fight on the docks to prevent the attackers from getting the use of respawning vehicles.

In order to complete this achievement three things must be done:

  1. The initial offensive team must reach the relic in under three minutes.
  2. Once the initial offensive team is defending, they must rush the docks, slow the opposing team, and kill them. Catapults should be ignored and left to be handled by turret operators.
  3. When the players that have died respawn at the beach graveyard they must be camped by the defending team so that they can not reach the docks for bomb supplies or Catapults.
