AI replaces booted players. Game is over when AI is the only opponent.
Allow game creators to optionally specify that when a player gets booted he's territories are taken over by AI.
I think ONLY booted player should be changed by AI (not surrendered).
In case if all you opponents are AI - the game is finished and you win.
Team A (3 players) vs Team B (3 players) - 1 player from B is booted, the games is between 3 v 2+1AI and continuous.
Game 1 vs 1 - booting means 1 v 1AI = end of game.
Game 2 v 2 - booting means 2 v 1+1AI. When second player is booted, its 2 v 2AI = end of game (win).
You can do this now! Two checkboxes exist when creating a game:
“Players turn into AI controlled players when booted”
“AIs surrender when only one human remains”
By making the AIs surrender instead of just ending the game, the remaining human can choose if they want to accept those surrenders or have fun slaughtering the AI.
I'm definitely in favour of this in principle, as it may help, but giving a players territory to an "AI-fits-all" might not work as well as hoped... If the player is worse than the AI that takes their place, then the players that (under the previous system) would have benefited from booting now get an undeserved penalty; similarly even though the AI might replace the territories, if the AI is significantly worse, then it still yields an unfair advantage to those adjacent. If there were a way to combine this idea with the idea of rankings to offer an accurate AI substitution difficulty (even though the AI couldn't gain a win for the player booted), I'd like it much more.

I like this, but again I think it is only half of the solution. Perhaps a good first step, though.
I would love to see the ability to specify a replacement queue in which other players can take over players who flake from a game. An AI replacement absolutely is better than nothing, but not the most ideal solution in all cases.
I voted, maybe this will make the game with Booted players a bit more enjoyable
Not extension. It's a better version of it. It shall replace that feature suggestion.
So it's basically an extension of http://warlight.uservoice.com/forums/77051-warlight-features/suggestions/1067539-ai-replaces-booted-surrendered-players?ref=title ?
