Actually I have had that happen, and they didn't win. I've even done it to other people using my scoundrel and shadow. But when done to me they haven't been able to defeat me before my companion wakes up. I can still interrupt, stun and delay them long enough for my companion to get in the fight. If they put their rank 50 companion on damage and then mez mine, then yes I would concede I should go down pretty quickly. But I guess all the ones that have tried it so far have still had their comp on healing, which means I'm effectively still going 1v1 and just need to stay alive long enough for comp to revive. Easy.

Closest anyone ever got was a Concentration Sentinel who managed to take out Kira slightly before I took her companion, leaving us 1v1, at which point she lost.
buddy....ok. I'll rewrite that for you:

That's like saying, of all the brain-dead beasts of burden, my brain-dead donkey will outlast the other brain-dead oxen, horses, and ponies wandering the desert.

it's still a brain-dead donkey wandering in the desert.

No need to be bitter just because companion duels are different tactically to WZ or 1v1 duels. You've stated that I'm wrong, I'm pretty sure I recognise your name from GSF in Darth Malgus? So feel free to come and show me that I am wrong. I have no issue being proved wrong and will happily accept it and concede that you are right if you can beat me in a companion duel.

Except they could just re-mezz your companion. Did you know the merc/sorc mezzes run for a minute, yet have only a ~52s (with alacrity) cd? Yes, that means they can mezz your companion permanently and your skank tank can do nothing about it.

Fair comment, no argument from me. No one ever seems to think of that though.

lul GSF. dumbest waste of pvp resources in the galaxy. figures you play that.

I'm on SF.

I don't dispute that you can fudge your way through a 1v1 skanking and guarding your comp. my point is that that's not how OW works. you might find a lone stealth looking for a random gank, but OW is functionally the gree event where 2 or more ppl grp up and gut you and your companion. then you either port back to the safety of a pve instance or you call on some friends and an actual OW pvp fight breaks out for 10-60 minutes. I take it you never experienced ilum before the gree changes?

but you just go ahead and have fun organizing your little "1v1" fights with comps and calling it OW PVP.

Why you gotta be like this? Do you talk to people in real life like this? Have ever managed the art of a civil conversation? I could retort, and if it was a civil chat I would, but yeah, I think we agree on one thing, neither of us wants to talk to the other anymore.

As some people mentioned it at least brings a different kind of PVP. You have quite a few ways on how to approach this. You can be tank+healer, dps+dps, dps+healer etc. There are different companions, some are stronger, some weaker etc. There is also the possibility to use heroic moment and Unity.

So I would leave it as it is.
