dance210: I guess it depends on how you define positive and negative.   Does it get rid of the group stage seeding? No, although it may be tweaked slightly. Does it adjust the gold prizes? Yes.  Will all y'all like the changes? I'm going to go with no, simply because it doesn't go back to the old format ;)

The fairest way to administer a round robin group stage is through a random draw. Trying to manipulate the brackets for "distribution of wealth" dis-incentivizes teams from improving. Seriously, just look at the anonymous poll in your forums:   http://forum.worldof...age__mode__show   93% against it. People were happy with the old system. That is an anonymous poll, giving new and experienced players a chance to voice their opinion without having to worry about getting "shamed" by posting an unpopular opinion in a thread. Just because a couple people weren't happy with the old system doesn't mean you have to change something that works for 99% of people. I know many people that have stopped playing skirmishes, and many more that are strongly considering it. It's fine to test a new idea, but it's time to bring back what already worked. We're over-complicating something that was fine as-is. I really do appreciate the fact that you put the effort in to holding these skirmishes. If you're going to put the time in, the best outcome would be to let the player base decide what they want. Put up a poll with different options and let the players decide for themselves.

dance210: I'm sorry, but even with 93% voting that they dislike the change, that is only ~5% of the players who participate in the Skirmish each week. And, to be fair, the decision to change the Skirmishes wasn't based solely, or even predominately, on player feedback. Yes, we like hearing feedback. And yes, I have talked to some people about where we are going with the Skirmishes and what I hope to see happen down the road. But ultimately, player feedback is only a part of our decision-making process.   The Skirmish format reached a point where it needed to change. We already introduced the format change; when Skirmish 13 is published, the new gold prizing will be introduced. If that still isn't quite right, we'll take another look and change things as needed.   It is extremely doubtful that the old format/prizing will be re-introduced as it was.

dance210:   Haha I'm finally caught back up (and have roped people in to helping me)! That means that things should get done faster now :)
