These are exactly the kind of players that whined and bitched loud enough to finally ruin freestyle. It wasn't from those that played and enjoyed freestyle.

yeah, not being able to cheat really sucks... perhaps while you are waiting for those turns to come around, you can study some grammar and other basic language rules.. that way, us how enjoy the forums can use it anymore easily...-0

Owen, you have played SIX (6) total freestyle games in the entire history of your games played. You don't have clue when it comes to freestyle, you are not a credible source for determining what is and is not cheating in freestyle.

Now let's all stay away from personal attacks and discuss the issue at hand, eh?

As someone who has played 134 freestyle games (17% of total) I am very happy with the changes. As you probably know we used to have games in which double turns were allowed and games in which they were not. It was decided that this was an unnecessary option and encouraged "unfair" tactics and made the game less about the casual player and more about the serious gamer. So the double turns were eliminated, and yet this loophole remained. Now I understand that it wasn't cheating, but using the loophole was clearly taking advantage of players who did not know about it, and this went against the principle of eliminating the option of double turns. This was all made worse when objective games appeared because in those cases the double turn ensures that you win, and there is no way the opponent can stop you, even if they are there exactly when time runs out. That is what made the setting very unfair and is why there was such large support for a fix to the loophole. So now speed freestyle games are very different, and I know that will take some getting used to, but it's hard to argue that they aren't more fair.

Well I hope it is not the only thing! Unfortunately we don't get briefed on exactly what will be added because it's hard to know how difficult the coding will be, but I'm definitely hoping we will see more additions from this list: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=94711&start=0

Yes, but I played many more doubles freestyle games. Me and my buddy Metalmesh were pretty good at those.

I have played thousands of freestyle games and I think it is a great fix! Suck it up cupcake and get used to it. Just press B until you can start. It is not that hard at all. Stop bitching and learn to get better at this game.

It's not fixed.

You can still have double turns, check out game 5675116 if you don't believe me.

Yellow finished 2 of his turns before I finished mine, and I then have to wait for 12 hours.

Either make it sequential with 2 players, or make it totally free-style...

Err, no. Technically, when you began your turn you took it before him. There's a big difference.
