    You have left! (?) (thinking…)
    How important is this to you?

    Teammates leaving a game is certainly frustrating. Allowing another teammate to enter orders for them is definitely a possible way to address that problem.

    We could use some feedback on the following potential issues with this feature:

    1. In teams of more than 2 players, who gets control of a player that’s left? Just first to click the button, or assign a team captain or something?
    2. Could this slow down real time games? Imagine if one person has to enter orders for 3 teammates that have left plus themselves.
    3. Would this encourage someone to boot their teammates, just to take control over them?
    4. It needs to be very clear who is playing who for every turn. If someone that’s under control starts sabotaging their team, like gifting stuff to an enemy or attacking teammates, it needs to be clear it isn’t really them and you shouldn’t necessarily…

    A way around the time problem would be this: in a 3 minute game, the player in control (team captains are a good idea) would have 3 minutes for each army he has to control. For example, if the captain is in control of his army and 2 other armies, he would get 3 minutes for his own army, once committed he gets 3 minutes for the second army, once committed he gets 3 minutes more for the third army.
