Why were skirmishes removed? They were a very exciting and fun part of the game for many people and were great for testing addons, new partners, or just plain having FUN. Wargames are a horrendous replacement, and are fine in their own right, but are not nearly the same as skirmishes that we all love.
If the reason was blizzard is lazy/dosen't want to dedicate the server space, be honest.
The response: Wargames were a replacement for skirmishes is not acceptable, as they are different things entirely.
