I would suggest you vote and voice your want for Arch Linux to be readded to Digital Ocean over on the Uservoice forum.

As to why it was removed the official response was, “We are deprecating Arch Linux as one of the standard base distributions. We haven’t seen a large up take in the number of customers that have installed Arch and given the distro’s rolling updates the maintenance work that it requires currently on our side does not allow us to stay up to date.”
