I think it's a fair question, the idea of getting us involved in the testing and development process is awesome!
But what types of arguments carry the most weight? I see several ways of approaching this here are a few I've come up with.
Statistical analysis and comparison
Casual table time experience
Observation of high level play
Player base consensus possibly with polls
I say all of this as the circle group seems to have mostly come to the consensus that the Lord of the feast does not function properly but really I want to know what is the best method get the right attention to that issue and that's something I'm sure all the factions will want to know.
