Jumping Into Battles

I understand the game is about teamwork. But not everyone wants to team up with random people all the time. I think it would be great if only GROUP members can jump into fights. I don't know how many times I've almost finished a duel and BOOM some random person jumps in and brings more mobs to fight. Its really annoying and ruins game play for me and my friends. Is it possible to make something like my suggestion happen? I know many others find it annoying as well.

Battles are not private. A player has every right to join any battle they want. Sure, it may be annoying when someone drags in a new monster, but you can't complain, because they have the RIGHT to do that.

Besides, what happens when you're about to die in a street fight but have no one online who's in your group, then a 'random person' tries to join but can't because you MADE IT so that they can't?

I agree. I am sick and tired of "noobs" (and I rarely use the word "noobs") jumping into my fights.

I used to mind when people would jump in, but in the newer places you need the help!

When you fight a mob out in the open, the game is MEANT to have more people and mobs join. It is to see how well you can play the game with a team. If you really do want a private battle, go to a realm that is not very populated, make sure no one else is around, and THEN fight. It's the best way. Now, if you are having a problem with people porting to you, turn OFF the teleport, or click the hidden from friends button. Hope this helps. William Crowthistle Legendary Pyromancer

It is annoying, and KI has taken the only step they really can, and has taken away that stupid pop-up telling new wizards to jump into battle.
More times than not, the jumping in causes more problems. And I've also had people jump in and just sit there, letting me take the hits and do all the work.
Common courtesy would be to ask first. I have seen that happen with most higher leveled wizards, and it's something I always do.
Aside from what KI has done, there's not much they can do since, as others have stated, this is not a private game.
I do disagree, however, that the game was "MADE" for this. I think you should be able to battle alone if you choose to do so.

What I think KI should do is when somebody tries to jump into your battles, a pop up should appear asking "Would you like *wizard's name here* to join your battle?" That way if you are dying, you can decide to let them join. If you don't want and/or need them, just click "no". I posted something on these boards about this. It's so annoying. Especially when 'noobs' (i'm lacking a better word) jump in and use their level spells. And waste your traps in doing so.
