Aye, Rocketry. Hopefully this update will help both with "random invader targetting" nuisance, in addition to helping curb multiple accounts overall. :)

Logging end of turn

Now you can always know exactly when a player clicked End Reinforcement in a no spoils game. The game log will now display either X ended the turn or X ended the turn and got spoils as the case may be. This should be particularly handy in shedding some light on confusing situations in freestyle games. :P

Does this in any way get rid of the double turn exploit in Freestyle games? Or is this a step in getting rid of it?

sadly ths will not stop double turning but during freestyles you can easily tell if an opponent has ended turn, even if they didn't get a risk card. (previously you have been forced to watch the icon to the left of their name).

The Freestyle concern is a whole different issue, and it may be something we can address in one of the next updates down the line.

Nope. The big update was split into 3 by Lack. He saves the best for last, of course.
