This is not a tactics question.

I choose the "Versus A.I." option from the main screen and then a custom on Megaton vs 2 Medium A.I. However, after beating them, I don't get the achievement.

What are the correct settings I need to get these outmatched achievements? Do they need to be played on particular maps or something like that?

Are you playing online? You have to be connected to BattleNet to get achievements – Dfowj Sep 19 '10 at 14:51

You must play this as "Multiplayer - Custom game" otherwise you wont get the achievement. So selecting "Single Player - Versus AI" is actually a waste of time when you want achievements i think. I always create a custom game in MP and have no trouble getting achievements. As for the map/game settings, "melee" works for me. Good luck!

this is annoying in that Blizzard doesn't make it at all obvious that this is necessary. – Peter Recore Sep 20 '10 at 0:03
@PeterRecore Blizzard does say "custom game" in the achievement text – McKay Sep 20 '10 at 18:46
Does it say "multiplayer"? that's what i would consider obvious. I don't have SC2 with me right now so i can't actually check. – Peter Recore Sep 22 '10 at 23:21
@McKay You can play a "custom game" in single player. Thus it is very confusing. – Rupert Madden-Abbott Sep 23 '10 at 1:45
