Franchise Updates:

DEV NOTE: The team was able to fix multiple high priority issues via server side fixes since the last Title Update. There is also an attempted fix going live today for the draft revert bug. The Draft Revert Fix is a server side fix, and while it is deploying at a similar time to TU4, it is not part of the TU4 fix specifically.
