How should be the Arena be designed?

Only one Arena mode (vinalla,pantheon,agora,full) should be accessible (non alternating, not parallel) [pls argue below, why]
24
33%
Multiple versions of the game should be playable in Arena, but it should be alternating by season. [also argue why, please]

17%
Multiple versions of the game should be playable in Arena at the same time (but with devided Aerna scores)

Agreed. I think the important poll would be..

"Who supports any kind of change to the arena system to incorporate expansions in some way and ensure it's not 7WD vanilla forever?"

I just want to see something happen. However the minds at be want to do it will be an improvement over vanilla forever, so please work towards some kind of change! 7WD on BGA is too great of a game to not put this effort into.

hey, I would have loved to make more polls, as stated in my first or second post, BUT since this poll was manipulated VERY obviously, I put that idea on ice, and wanted to post about it on the main forum instead - that was 3-4 months ago. I just really do not have time for that, sadly (and its getting worse, with all things happening..). And also there wouldnt be a way to guard against extra votes from someone super opinionated [the only way would be restrict voting for people with over {x amount i.e.}100 7wd games - no way the devs will take time to implement that -.-], if they would do it in a clever way (instead of dumping a ton of votes for one option in a very short time span). --- and thats just collecting opinions of players. deciding based on that, may be tricky too.

but nevertheless, with 7wd Im sure that there is a large enough player base, that would be happy about another arena format - so feel free to contact the mods/admins (I would think) - if there are enough requests, they might do something about it!

Good Luck ;)
