I got the School of Hard Knocks achievement within 40 minutes of starting the orphan questline. While it can be much more time consuming, I think people are overreacting a bit about it. First, many of the games I was in moved far faster than they usually do BECAUSE people were going for objectives. Do you know how often people try to cap AV towers in my Battlegroup? Or try to get flags back in WSG? Or fight on the flags in AB? Not often. The only one that was problematic was capping a flag in Eye, because that's not generally the best strategy. Even there though, we were able to four cap because the entire Horde team went for the flag. Once we killed them, half of our team got credit for the achievement, one at a time. I came into the next game and the same thing occurred, this time I was able to get credit.Yes, for some people this will be a challenging achievement. Still, you have five days. You can queue for BGs anywhere now. There are so many tools at your disposal too. Try group queueing with some friends who can keep the opposite faction off your back. Multiqueue across 3 BGs so that if you don't get the objective in one BG, you can switch to another instead of waiting out the full game. If you have gotten the achievement, help others who need it so things move along.And for the people who are shouting out, "Get out of my BGs, you achievement W****!" Be patient. I've done over 1000 BGs in the last few months. Things have been getting a little stale. This is a short period of excitement where other players are actually awake in BGs. For five days, BGs are a little different. Try to find the fun in it.
