The design of this achievement is actually worse than the article makes it out to be:Capturing Arathi Basin flag? Good thing.Making sure that you personally capture Arathi Basin flag, to the point of repeatedly right-clicking that flag and ignoring your teammates while they try to finish off the last couple of defenders? Awful, selfish, shortsighted thing.So it isn't just that Blizzard is rewarding the wrong strategic goals on a macro level, they are rewarding incredibly obnoxious behavior on a micro level. For every beautiful story of Horde and Alliance cooperating to reset the Alterac Valley flag, I can give you five stories of stupid teammates failing to take it in the first place because they kept right-clicking on the gear instead of helping their team. I'm just as much to blame this week as anyone else, and trying to go after this achievement with any level of efficiency just made me feel dirty. I don't like being rewarded for being a jerk.
