I sorely miss skirmishes because they were a great way to test out Arena mods, new abilities, as well as hone your PVP skills. Reading over some of the blue notes regarding PVP today, I came across this:
Any news about Skirmish Arenas? They're sorely missed, and you know that. Nakatoir said he'd give us a proper answer, waiting.
We get the request a lot, but when we had them they were not widely used. We'll consider adding them back, but low priority ATM.
Have they ever actually quantified that statement? All I ever hear about is how "they weren't widely used," but when is the last time you heard anyone saying they were doing a War Game? Ever?
It seems like Blizzard has some kind of unwarranted aversion to skirmishes? Why, I don't know. Anyone else wonder about this?
