Ahem, Plarium's fix involved removing inactive accounts from the ladder. It never mentioned broken pages with teams filled with subpar players for easy farming.
Plarium did not invite anyone to Gold or beyond, the players invited themselves by farming obviously glitched pages of bots. Proof is that Plarium wasn't even aware of the bot pages in Arena.
This bug seems to have went away on it's own, and now Arena is the way it's SUPPOSED to be according to Plarium and the standards set by players themselves.
It's not a good game deisgn but issues like these happen, point is, if you think that farming glitched pages should allow you to be in top of the ladder, then both you, players, and Plarium disagree.
Sorry but players shouldn't be allowed to farm "bots" all the way up to Platinum as it was happening before.
Arena is fine, it's the only real challenging mode we have, and players who have dedicated enough effort to build a good Gold team should be rewarded for it.
