Notes of interest:
- The key next step for Arena is to get it into the Pioneers testing program to start getting feedback.
- Rare want to grow and build Arena with Pioneers before it goes out to a wide release.
- The double-gun exploit has become more prevalent recently. The effective “one-shot” nature of the current usage was never the intended design. A fix will be coming “to one of our game updates”.
- A setting to disable gamertags will be coming in the next update (useful for streamers).
- The “Recent Players” view on Xbox has been buggy and will be in the next game update – this will make it easier to add friends or report players.
