School of Hard Knocks isn't a bad achievement. Only thing is, it should reward battleground wins rather than, say, the first one in AB to cap the opening flag. Mages (Blink) and Rogues (Sprint) will always win, and it takes no skill or effort on their part.

Agreed. If even if they just changed it to capture a flag in WSG, kill enemy players attacking a node you control in AB, or things that would advance a game rather than secondary objectives, it would make the process at least more reasonable. HKs count for the whole team, and the point of wsg is to cap flags, not /emote hugs to draenei with 60k hp in hopes they will drop the flag for you and /cuddle for the next 20 minutes.

I don't see why it has to be solitary, either. When 10 people rush into IWB or IBT and only one can cap the flag, why doesn't Blizzard let all 10 get credit? It wouldnt be that hard to do something where everyone in the tower gets the credit.

@Austin: Yes, it is a bad achievement, and I don't care how you want to sugar-coat that. So far, I've burned almost 4 hours in it tonight, and all I have to show for it is a lot of grief, stress, and a burning hatred for BGs. Not to mention the griefing my own faction inflicted on us, literally keeping the flag away from us in EotS.
