I see everywhere that the Hot Shot Feat of Strength can be unlocked by winning 5 placement matches. I've did this with a friend in 2v2, but none of us got the achievement.
Can anyone confirm that it does exist?

It exists. As of Patch 1.1, it is now attainable.
There are trigger components in the editor to award it (though obviously, nothing accessible through the editor involves actually awarding it, and the awarding of achievements on custom maps is impossible at any rate).
A better question might be: "Why didn't I receive this feat of strength?" to which I don't know.
It's possible it's reserved for 1v1 placements, only checks the first set of placement matches per season, or something else entirely.
I got this achievement in the middle of the fifth game for 4v4 placement. I was already 2 wins and 2 loses, so it isn't for 5 wins. It happend during intensive micro during battle, so I didn't notice what achievement I got until I finished the game. In the end we lost even the fifth game. Sorry, nothing special comes to mind, that could trigger such an achievemt.
EDIT: I checked the replays and I actually went 3 wins 2 losses and in the middle of the 6th game I got the achievement. It might be that the achievement is just bugged. Or it really needs a different trigger than 5-0 in placement matches.
