I think minions should not be allowed in pvp at all, PVP is player vs player, not player vs player and minions

This post has come up a few times, so you're not alone.

You're also not right, but you're not alone :D

Seriously, minions aren't real PLAYERS, they are simply a spell. Sure, they can last longer than most, but they are a spell, nonetheless. They don't think, they don't strategize, they just do.

Aside from the fact that getting rid of Minions in pvp would mean eliminating a huge strength for Myth (and Fire wizards, to a lesser extent), I don't see how you can be upset about it since it's something EVERYONE has. Some school minions are better than others, sure, but methinks you should focus a bit more energy on developing a strategy to beat them than worrying about how "unfair" they are.

HINT: If you want to do well in 1v1, learn to use them. They can be very powerful and rarely do I lose a match to anyone who does NOT use one.

Nope the main reasons why minions should be allowed are:
1.its myths main strength
2.fire needs it because the fire minions uses fire elf
3.My mander and 3 elemental minions are my best helpers.

I agree! I was playing a 3v3. My team was losing hope but then one of my friends whipped out a unicorn (Hooray! Or is it?) We started to win but then a grandmaster casted a cyclops! (Not the orgininal cyclops it was with armor but I could not remember the name) The cyclops was focusing on me when I have 1,500 health. In 2 rounds I was down to 200 health! The next round...KO! One wizard fell after the other by the one cyclops and his master. But the other 2 wizards are just sitting there doing useless attacks like Minor Ice shards. I believe it should be a rule. If a person(s) breaks the rule he or she will be immediately be dropped out of the battle with the minion. And he or she will be banned from the matches for 1 hour!

wow you really should read that over.

1. like i said before, minions are myths specialty

2. You dont have a real reason why to get rid of minions

3. An hour? really, some people get annoyed by wait for one minuite let alone a hour

4. The "orgininal cyclops with armor" is called a minotaur

5. It sound more like your complaing about you losing

Dear Angelocean,

Regarding your brilliant analogy, I must agree with Capseen: you are a genius!
And although miserably overused, I did indeed LOL! Thanks for the chuckle. I bow to you!

Not minotaur he is talking about the 1-4 Cyclops minion spell. and yes just because you lose doesnt give you the right to complain

[size=7]It can be a little unfair, but using metoeor, sandstorm, blizzard, etc can usually kill them or leave them with half there health. Plus, the best minions i've seen are minotaur and scarecrow both with 700 health. I have the scarecrow minion and its best move are vampire.

true dat, people have minds some minds are creative think of ways to take down your enemys from the inside. myths advantages are to stay inside their immaginary box but to completely overwhelm their opponents with more players (minions) and to deliver the final blow.

i cant believe people even think this will happen. Myth's specialty is actually minions so its no surprise that this happend. Anyway i think minions are helpful and even when others cast them its completley fair. Minions are a spell after all and each school gets one so if you dont like it then you'll just have to cast your own and see how that works out. Also if your low on life a bit of life magic would help and maybe if possible, better gear. Even if other players arent doing anything then maybe thats a great dvantage to you! I'm just saying minions are a helpful part of the game and should be used to EVERY players advantage.

Shesh not this again. Complaints from low ranked players...Please don't ask for KI or other to change just because you can't develop a strategy.

ha make a myth wizzard and start using minions on other people, still want them removed? quit complaining about other people doing wht they do best. pwning people like you who's only form of strategy is request that rules be changed to your advantage instead of being totaly fair. it's rare for me to even contemplate using the following insult, but your being just plane n00bish.
