Along with this test we have a couple of feedback threads to discuss Master Modes itself as well as the Game modes.
Feedback threads can be found here
As always, PVP in Arena Commander is dependent on game mode. Expect to be shot in Duels and Dogfights but do not purposefully attack others in Free Flight and Vanduul Swarm without all parties agreeing.
Thanks for playing!
