Completely agree with Zach here on the fact that this was badly designed. I've played a few hundred BGs matches on my Discipline Priest. That role typically put me *healing* the flag carriers, not being one (though I did that too sometimes) or killing the enemy carrier. I could probably count on my hands the number of times I returned our flag. Instead, I typically made sure our flag carrier didn't drop because I was much better suited to do that. This achievement would make me ignore the role I would be best at and that would contribute greatly to the team's goals to try to get something for myself with my awesome Discipline Priest DPS, perhaps I could also watch our flag carrier die and /wave at him while I return our flag and pick up the achievement.Just to make it clear, I don't think the achievement seekers or the hardcore PvPers are at fault here. Instead of directing so much hate at each other, your complaints should be to Blizzard for making the achievement not necessarily be something that will help your team do its job in the battleground. I love WoW and many of the things in it, but things like this really make me wonder what the designers were thinking when implementing it.
