Zanz didn't like how farms made rares much less rare than they were supposed to be. Hence, T50 was removed and Arena was brought in. The Arena system still does allow farms to exist, but the competitive nature of the Arena and the fact that farms only last 2-5 losses before deactivating means that they are heavily discouraged.

End result: rare cards are rare (as they're meant to be), but there are still ways of winning them (via bonus rare spins or just regular spins, if an opponent's deck used rare cards).

T50 was not a good system, for reasons already mentioned, however:

I don't think arena is much better of a system, what arena does is simply prolong the farming, not necessarily make rares rarer, it's just as easy to get rares as it was before, just more time-consuming

I do agree that farming for rares is still just as boring, and now it takes longer

some system should be introduced to make getting rares harder, and taking more time is not harder, just boring and annoying

Just go play MtG. You only need to invest like 1000$ into booster packs to earn your well-deserved rares. Nothing compared to actually playing the game and trying to win rares.

It was a way of getting rares that didn't take a million hours... Plus, it gave you ideas for real decks, not crazy triple sign double draw decks. AND, it rewarded you for playing well!

Please bring the Top 50 Back!

And THEN you have to try a slot machine to get a chance at a rare.
Did you know that you can respin individual slots in the special spin?  Notice there are blue circles with arrows in them corresponding to each of the three slots.  You can re-spin each one up to three times (pic related: in the picture I've re-spun the left slot one time, and it can be re-spun up to two more times; the other two slots can be re-spun up to 3 times each)

You probably already knew that, but it's not like it's spelled out anywhere, and I know I missed it on my very first special spin.  Maybe the programmers could arrange that the first time a new account gets a special spin, an info box pops up explaining this mechanic?

Sometimes you see some lines with the the text " click to re-spin" - don´t know exactly when - So the developer thought about that.

I don't really want top 50 back, but I do want a way to view the scores of the accounts with the highest scores, and a leaderboard. Is there a way to do so, right now? Excluding the separate highscore lists on unaffiliated websites (eg. Kong)

I'd much rather look at the leaderboard of arena decks than look at the same people who have 2million points.
