The reason why School of Hard Knocks is bad has already been outlined in the link above. It messes up the battleground. It makes players who have never seen the battleground, who have no idea what the rules are in a battleground, go in and stumble around in it.It would be like an achievement where you need to take the orphan to see the Ascendant Council fight (insert some math pun here for the title). Is it impossible to pull off? No. Is it a major annoyance anyone, possibly encumbering a raid to pull off with people who haven't practiced or studied the fight and just want an achievement? Absolutely.

The difference is that raid's take a lot more time and effort to put together, prepare for and complete, whereas a battleground can be joined in a few minutes and finished in 20 or so. A more apt comparison might be to a dungeon, but even that's a lot more complex than joining a battleground. You can't really compare PVE and PVP achievement experiences.

@JattTheRogue:Well, I'm quite sure I directly made my team lose at least two of the BGs I did for SoHK, and hampered the other BGs; it should be just a coincidence, but I lost every single BG where I got any part of the achiev done.So, in the end, I believe I wasted, on average, more than an hour of play time of groups of players with at least 10 players.

This is exactly my problem: I do not do BGs. At all. Ever. Just not for me. Sure, I did when guildies needed a hand, but I personally do not like them.*sighs* But for an Achievment, a title and a step toward a mount? Of course I'll do it. Just hope to get it all done on Sunday and that other players are forgiving of the new guy who is just trying to accomplish a goal. It is, after all, a game. You'll have other days to stomp people into the ground, just give us a bit of grace for a week. Please?
