The only reason I got School of Hard Knocks on my main was by grouping with another non-PvPer, and our guild's uber-awesome PvP druid. We had some nice, helpful Horde in WSG and AB, had to fight other players /of our own faction/ a bit in AV, but EotS was a nightmare of everyone trying to grab the flag, not capping any bases, verbal abuse over the flag and non-PvPers messing up the BG, etc.I haven't PvPed since classic, for various reasons. This achievement is ridiculous and highlights issues that are normally only underlying annoyances through the rest of the year. PvPers hate what it does to BGs for the week, while PvEers dread trying to complete it if they want the title or drake. It doesn't help at all the idea of "go do some new aspect of the game!" when it erodes teamwork--already a shaky thing--in most BGs and just scares people off from actually participating in the holiday event, let alone PvP. That it still exists in this form is frustrating and annoying, and I really don't want to bother on my alts--and I love holiday achievements. I like the suggestion above of making only one of the objectives a requirement.Meanwhile, back in Northrend, I'd really like to get my Wolvar pup this time. ;.;
