Special note on FLEX:
We feel we are close to returning FLEX functionality to the game. We are keeping a close eye on performance and crashes related to it. We have turned FLEX off completely for this build as in the process of fully testing a new build of this functionality and it was not ready for this release.

Special note on Versus Survival:
Our internal testing focused mostly on human teams around the same level (1’s, 12’s and 25’s)
