Sounds like some people don't know how simple and almost invisible the Companion pets were in D3. They zipped around picking up gold, that's it. They were tiny and were barely visible. They did nothing else.
In principle, I agree that people are (again) vastly over-reacting...
With that said, however, I'm a bit confused about the pets. If all the pets did was pick up gold, why did the CM describe them as if "they were mandatory to maximize play efficiency"? It's hard to see picking up gold as something that mandatory.
He said they 'felt' like the were mandatory to maximize play efficiency.
With the pet picking up gold for you the level can be finished in 21m 54s.
Without the pet picking up gold for you the level can be finished in 22m 11s.
It's really such a non-issue.
