School of Hard Knocks does deserve its place at number 2 there. Actually, I'm working on Insane in the Membrane right now and I'm currently debating whether or not SoHK is WORSE. I avoided BGs the first couple days after my experience with the achievement last year... (EoTS where everyone is in the center, and NO ONE caps any towers to bring the flag to? Ugh.) Though, perhaps that was a mistake. I spent the past two days struggling to get my achievement on my druid, and I can honestly say I will NOT be repeating it on any other toon. EVER. I've been ganked repeatedly, farmed, harassed by my own faction, cringed at being the only one attacking the healer instead of the guy with the flag (which got me slaughtered when they noticed), etc. I have done bgs here and there before... they're not really my thing, but I didn't downright DESPISE them... This achievement, though, makes me hate them with an unholy passion. TL;DRThis achievement brings out the WORST in people. It's you against the opposing faction, and you against your own team. It promotes single-mindedness towards singular objectives instead of the various objectives that will win the BG. It's just too full of fail for mere words.
