I am really disgusted with this new twist in the game, while defending or raiding an opposing faction, you have to worry about RID attacking you as well. Come fellows, we are in the same factions, we are suppose to be fighting for the same cause to win the towns, not each other. If you all want to fight against us, go to another faction. Then EA comes up with the big idea: not being able to attack a character within the your own faction with a pet, I can see the point of that , but you should be able to defend yourself. Even while the pet is guarding you, it will not counterattack on your behalf to an aggressor of your own faction.
