More and More and More Arena Bugs

So I've complained about the Zombie bug and other bugs affecting arena. Last night however I got proof of the worst yet.

Above is a picture of the guys admitting that they were gaming the arena system in order to gain 25-21 points per win and only losing 4 points for a loss. If you note their ratings below you will see that they are above 1000 (Overlord) and yet their rank in arena was "Private". Hmm, how does that happen? They won, twice, legidimately, and this good team lost a total of 21 points per game (42 total) losing to people ranked 300 points higher. (see below)

So we have a means by which super-high ranked people can bum free points off of lower ranked people and continue to move up and up and up with no end in sight. And with their ranks lowered to Private in the arena pool there's no end of victims that they can bum points off of.
If you see these guys Kevin Rubyhunter and Nathaniel Mythshade on the 2vs2, 3vs3 or 4vs4 board do NOT accept a match until they are gone. You will lose HUGE points to their "bug" or will win nothing worth while.
Is this something that K.I. needs to fix? ... Likely
But is it something people like this are taking advantage of you over? Yes! I managed to talk to Kevin Rubyhunter and Nathaniel Mythshade and they simply defended themselves by saying "everyone else does it".
While I have my theory on how this is done, please let me know if you've seen or know how this is done and I'll report on it.

I'm pretty sure that it is caused by this:

1. A friend creates a match.

2. The other friend goes and gets their wizard with 500 or lower rank, and enter the match with it.

3. The wizard with the lower level then logs off and enters the match again, and their rank then shows up as the same as their lower level wizards, thus giving them low ranked opponents.
