I found school of hard knocks to be ridiculously difficult. While some of my problems were caused by horde players after easy honorable kills, even more were caused by spiteful alliance players looking to show us how much they hate PVE in their precious battlegrounds.I tried unsuccessfully to capture a flat at EoTS for hours, I can't count the number of times I was thrown off that cliff in the middle. I wasn't lucky enough to be first to the flag, and it was not even remotely easy for me.Assaulting a flag in AB was relatively easy, but I found it funny when I was called an alliance bot for smiling and waving at a hunter that seemed to follow me to every flag for an easy kill.AV was tough because no less than 25/40 players on the alliance side needed to assault a tower in every match, and those that didn't need or care to complete the achievement seemed to feel it was their duty to make sure we were unsuccessful. As we all piled into one of four towers patiently awaiting the arrival of a friendly horde player, one of two outcomes was nearly certain: an jerk on our side would rush in and attack our horde friend or the tower would be set ablaze. This one took several tries.Finally in WSG, the only way that we were able to get everyone a chance to return the flag and move on with the game was to have a horde player repeatedly capture and drop the flag. I was lucky enough to find two of these horde players, but on my first attempt some jerk on our side grabbed the flag 15 times and finally the hordie got bored and left.I'm not sure how many battlegrounds I was in, but in total I only earned about 35,000 honor points as I was using my tank spec wearing a mixture of tank gear and pvp gear to increase my chances of surviving long enough to complete my goal. If I'd been in my regular dps spec and playing the game normally I would have earned much more honor. Overall this was not an enjoyable experience, and one that I don't plan to repeat in the future.
