And which dev thought making the whistle to beckon your child not work while in combat was a good idea considering you are sending us into BGs where we will die (child out) frequently and often rez and immediately enter combat???I did this achievement with my guild. 15 of us did as many WSG, AB, AV, and EotS as we could do over the course of FIVE HOURS, and still 3 people didn't get AV, 2 didn't get WSG.We are PvEers, for the most part, who dabble in PvP when feeling aggressive or when we need an item that is only available through honor. I'm reasonably sure that the opposing faction took one look at our gear in most BGs and lol'd at the carebears in thier t7...and the easy honor.This achievement was very poorly designed. If you wanted to introduce the fun of PvP to PvEers, then the achievements for School of Hard Knocks should have been something pertinent to learning how the BG worked and winning the battle, even if it took several BGs to finish, like "Capture all opposing faction graveyards and towers in AV" and being present when those flags were completely TURNED counted. Or "Kill a flag carrier in WSG" which would have been MUCH more in tune with how WSG is SUPPOSED to be played. Or "Capture and DEFEND two towers for an entire EotS" where your team needed to have two towers at any given time during a BG. At least in these scenarios, the PvPers could have helped the carebears by having them do something they understood and could likely handle "Stand here...and if anything bad comes this way, call out INC and kill it" Carebears wouldnt have disrupted PvP nearly as much, and hey, maybe a carebear would learn to love the BGs in return. What we ended up with was PvEers joining BGs and PvPers leaving, citing "gg, we lose cuz 2 many pve nubs, kthxbye"
