There was a post in News and Announcements to change milestones so all the gold available is now in the first 3 milestones for the arenas (excluding catalyst arenas). What this means is that there’s still the same amount available, just for less points.

5* featured:
2 million points for 38,000 gold
4* featured:
650k points for 30,750 gold
4* Basic:
150k points for 23,000 gold

Costs for finding matches will also decrease. Overall a positive change. The post hints to more being done for gold shortages, any teases for what these will be?

    I personally assume that this is a smart move for gold solutions.

    If that’s aimed at me, could you let me know where I was complaining or otherwise implied I was unhappy.

    I guess maybe I read it wrong when he said I personally assume.
    Thought it was condensending @BitterSteel

    Fair enough, I read it as positive, perhaps I read it wrong.

    This will definitely help with the gold problem, but we’ll have to wait and see if it actually fixes it.

    I don't think this is intended to "fix" anything per se, it is intended to partially alleviate the issue some people are having with gold. The fact that they said they were working on a number of other things suggests to me their approach is not to directly fix the gold situation (fix is an odd word because it implies something is broken) but rather to add a number of different avenues to increase gold that hopefully will add enough gold sources to allow the players to decide for themselves how to best mitigate gold shortages.

    Yeah this is what I think the best solution is. Not give away free gold, but make gold more available if players want to work for it.
