SOE claims that pets are too hard to balance, and therefor, had to be removed and can't be reintroduced. Although pets do raise balance issues, they do not create a large balance issue. In fact, Droids were left in the game, and can be quite potent pets, even at thier nerf levels, as well as some mounts.
Now, high level pets have been added back tot he game. With Chapter 3 Officers get a permenant DataPad Pet, and Smugglers can call in a temp high level NPC that will fight & even heal them. The offer Pet is actually trainable, allowing Officers to have a potent Pet.
If pets were unbalanced, why are they being reintroduced, just like all of the other stolen features that are flooding back in. Simply put, CH & Faction Pets were easily balanced, but SOE determined CH shouldn't be in the game, even though the players wanted it.
So ask SOE: IF pets create a balance issue, why are you adding them back to game? Why are you hinting that Faction Pets will be returning? Why did you lie to us and remove CH? Why won't you give us CH back?
