Release notes v1.6.8

Update v1.6.8 is now available to download in all platforms. This update prepares the ground for the next events, and brings some bug fixes and quality of life improvements.

● When a warlord dies, all queued effects will now get resolved before finishing the match, making it easier to pull a draw from the jaws of defeat. (Did someone mention Viral Bombs?)
● The Battle Log now shows up to 30 matches, and allows up to 10 of them to be pinned.
● You can now type multiple chat messages on PC/Mac without having to click on the chat each time. Please use responsibly.
● If the game gets stuck in an endless loop saying there is new content to download, the popup will now provide an option to re-download all remote content, which should clear any underlying issues.

● Fixed gameplay error related to auto-attacking troops, which could cause a match to freeze.
● Fixed interaction of Umbra Secundus with Desperate Defence and other cards with similar effect.
● Fixed error when choosing a card while timer is in countdown, which could cause the card choice to happen automatically.
● Fixed bug in certain options of the collection search box.
