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…Ade supported this idea ·

Many times I have wanted to take over a player who was booted. I think it should only be an option after a set number of turns. By then you are invested in a game and it is unfair on everyone if it ends. If they fail to take turn 1 then it should be a vote to end. As for slowing the game down, the boot times remain the same so it will not slow things down beyond what was agreed to start with. I don't think players will burn out, it's optional. It is a fair point that someone may sabotage in the name of another, it should be made clear in the PLAYERS box they have left (As is the case when the text goes green for AI). As for who in the team takes over, it is the same as a team bonus card, you have to reach agreement as to who takes it, nothing is perfect.
