      Since your wizards are Adept, you might not be seeing the older and armored puppets we get at Magus.

      Re: Is KI Aware of Puppet Teams?

      Here is an idea to fix that.When you click on the vendor to start a pvp match, you would click on what kind of pvp you want. You would then see things you can click that say Lvl 1-10, 11-20,21-30,31-40,41-50,51-60,61-70 only. When, you click on one of those, you will be able to join a match or a quick match.

      Well, frankly I am just trying to bump up this thread, so it will continue to catch Kings Isle attention.

      I am, however, the designated thread collector, and I have found that, even though we can no longer post new threads in the central pvp section, others are still posting in the KI's own message boards. I wish I could tell them to check out our thread here to let them know they are not alone.

      I copied and pasted the OP, but IDK if it'll get approved, because of all the links.

      From the new thread over in PvP forum:

      I'm tired of this "puppet teams" they ruin low lvl pvp, I asked why they did that and asked them to stop becuase they ruin lvl pvp, then the lvl 20 called me a noob.
      I got -22 points at the end of the match which isn't fair!
      Here is the screen shot of the battle.
      Please kingsisle, do something about this instead of releasing new packs.

      Hopefully, KI will fix this soon.

      i feel for this guy, really frustrating he couldn't get a fair match. i went into several matches tonight (and i am set up to fight puppet teams)...and i got wiped out, lost massive points, and i was first in several of the matches. i play an adept wizard, fought several 3v3 teams that were 2 transcended, and one level 1 wizard...and one of the transcended on each team had massively down ranked, had a rating below 100; anyway, group pvp is a brutal experience right now, very seldom does one get a fair, reasonable match. it's basically a Lord of the Flies scenario, with the people who take the lowest possible road doing very well for themselves...group pvp is a joke right now, virtually unplayable. really hoping KI can fix this sooner rather than later.

      I hope they take this opportunity to reassess how they can fix "downranking" instead of answering that they have no idea whether a person is losing rank on purpose or just losing.

      I think if you see that a character is continually disconnecting or logging off or fleeing during matches, it's a good sign that the person is losing rank on purpose. Or if a person repeatedly lost due to lack of cards. Or if a person repeatedly passes during a duel.

      Make the cost of downranking (in time) go up and more people won't bother because it will take 30 minutes to an hour just to throw a match.

      They should make it so that the highest level character of each group matches the highest level character of another. Or have it so that no wizard can team up with another further than 5 levels above or below.

      Rather than restrict the levels, the matchup can be made by "weighting" the higher level team member(s). This seems to be a simple solution.

      As for downranking, I literally have dozens of screenshots of wizards with 0 rank who have done so for purposes of gaming the system. It may be overcomplicated to adjust the matching system to compensate for both level gaps and downranking, but it seems like some easy fixes are:

      1. Change the matchup system to a simple "sum of the squares" method, which gives more weight to the higher level teammates.
      2. Set a "rank floor" of 300 as the lowest possible rank recognized by the matching system.

      I've said it over and over, if only I had a crown for every time I heard this.....

      Re: Is KI Aware of Puppet Teams?

      I still say just make rank pvp be like practice pvp. You can choose any kind of level restrictions you want.

      If KI doesn't want to do that. Just split the level into two types of rank pvp; levels 1-49 and level 50+. This way, the high damage output plus criticals are almost taken away from lower level pvp.
