I really can't understand why people are so irate about School of Hard Knocks achievement. I did this last year and really, this was not an issue at all. As I recall, I did all for requirements in less then 3 hours.Best suggestion I can come up for you is to do this during off-peak hours. If you try for this at say 7pm server time, sure it won't be easy.Best time I can offer is try this 4-5 hours before the servers go for the weekly maintenance tonight. By the time its 2 hours to maintenance, the player base drops quite a bit.The only 'issue' this year would be that you can only queue for 2 BGs at a time and the queues are taking much longer then last year. Give yourself a cushion of a few days to do this and you'll be fine.Hope this helps.

Just because you and some other people did it in 3 hours or less doesn't mean other people are having issues. A lot of people don't PVP and a lot of the other players are griefing these people or anyone else doing the achievement.Doing the achievement at odd hours of the night/morning isn't an option for everyone. Not everyone is on the same timezone as their server and not everyone wants to be up at 3 am, especially if they have work/school that morning.Your advice was good, but there are exceptions. This achievement is an annoyance for those who don't like battlegrounds and I can understand their pain. This is coming from someone who for the most part loves battlegrounds and can't deal with raiding.
