@Noselacri:People hate it because it encourages completely aberrant behavior. Thousands of PVEers are vying for the same achievement and the same goals, which means there's 30-40 people in Alterac Valley going after 4 towers. PVPers hate it because their BGs get filled with PVEers who have no interest in actually playing the BG, just getting their achievement.Arathi Basin wasn't too hard, except for the first match where Horde controlled 3 bases and the other 2 were protected by psychotic rogue duos and so were getting totally ignored and unapproachable by a single PVEer. I got that one by logging into an AB match where half the Allies and half the Horde were standing around a flag trading assaults.Alterac Valley...yes, everyone usually zergs, but not when more than half the players are there solely to assault the towers. This one would be easy if you were the only one in the match who wanted the achieve, but you never are. I only got this one because a friendly Ally showed up and we managed to convince our teammates not to kill him so he could defend the tower and let us all get assaults.WSG...well, the naked gnome sitting by the flag made that easy. But it would have been a hell of a lot harder had the BG actually been playing to win.Eye of the Storm, like you said, was the only truly hard one, especially since the Allies had a boomkin constantly hammering the flag site. I was significantly lucky in picking up the flag my first match, with all the competition for it.Honestly, everyone's problem with the achievement would go away if it were "Win one of each of these battlegrounds with your orphan out." It's the same level of difficulty and doesn't encourage non-PVP behavior.
