Pvp Puppets

Okay I was in a 3v3 with my friends and we were under lvl 30 commander/warlord. When we were in teh duel, some friends came and they checked the lvls for the opponents. They said that they were "puppets". The people on the opposite team were around lvl 20s and 30s. But there was a lvl 82 on the other team. We were doing fine the first 3 rounds planning what attacks we were going to do but on the next round the lvl 82 did a critical on an enchanted snow angel and we all died. Once the match was over, I checked the lvls of the other team and it was true they were puppets and everyone thought it was unfair besides the other team. I was wondering if this was fair or not because when I 4v4/3v3, we always get puppets.

Sounds odd to me - I thought they fixed puppeting... Odd... Just use rebirth TCs I guess.

Sigh...puppets, still not fixed. Yes, its annoying, and I don't know what to say other than I'm sorry that you lost to them because of a unfair match. The only way to truly fix puppets is place a level cap for team PvP, like a 15 level difference cap.

katty2154,

The way I understood the Puppet fix, that it was not a total fix, but just an improvement.
I'm not sure of where the posting was done, but they showed how they believed the fix
was done, and it was clear that puppets could still occur. The extreme puppets should
have been fixed, but puppets are still in pvp, and it doesn't look like they will be removed
or fixed in the near future.

Yes, people are always going to try to win in pvp off of some unfair advantage and you are inevitably going to end up with a mismatch...
