@ColdbearOnce again, your point only serves to highlight why the achievement is so awful; the requirements specifically go against the cooperative nature of battlegrounds. What ends up happening is that you've got most of the team on both sides ignoring the goals of the BG, ignoring the needs of the team, ignoring strategy, and just out to do what they need for the achievement. That's the reason that many hardcore PvP'ers hate this achievement too; for a whole week, any BG they go into could devolve into a complete, drawn out clusterf*ck with neither team actively trying to win; every time they queue, they have no idea how many people they're going to get on there side who not only have no idea how to win, they actually don't care AT ALL if they win or lose. Before WG was timed, you could end up with battles that just never ended that week because of how many people were just trading off flags, quitting the BG, and being replaced with people who also didn't want to end it; people who not only don't want to win, but would actively attack you for trying to.I have no problem with an achievement that encourages people to try things they've never tried before; however, this does it in the worst way imaginable. Make the achievement to win each BG with the orphan out. Hell, make it win each one 5 times if that's too easy. But make the achievement into something where you're not actively ruining other people's gaming by persuing it.
