You guys are so used to complain about anything, especially pets, that you don't even know how they work.
An ability can be used by one pet in the wing, and the wing is on CD as soon as one pets uses the ability. The abilities are similar to players ones. So it's at most 2 EWP every 45s, and the AI isn't as smart as you are, hopefully, so you might SEE that there is a dangerous zone.
I like these pets. Great control stuff. Sci powers are so lame that any sci deserves pets.
And since Gecko's current long-term plans are to turn pvp into a MOBA game (pvevp), you should get used to it anyway.
