Going Idle In MP Games and AI Taking Control

Post by Hyding » Mon Oct 04, 2021 7:46 pm

In multiplayer game chat players occasionally ask questions about what happens when players go idle.

I must have found what (i think) I remember in the forums because I cannot find anything in the manual about it.

If anyone finds anything incorrect in the following or knows of something useful to add please post for us. And any links to a good source would also be helpful to sosme players,

As best I can recall:

1. If you do not submit a turn by the established turn limit time the turn will run with no updates or changes from you. You will show as idle in the next turn.

2. After three turns of this (or on the third turn?) the AI will take over your faction.

3. If your faction has not been completely eliminated you can return to the game in any later turn by selecting your faction in the MP screen in the active game section.

If you do return to a game after the AI takes you will need to go to the province control screen for every province and reset the AI's building priorities and change them to no preference. It will do you no good to simply make your own choice region by region the game will over ride your selections and return to the AI's provincial settings if you do not manually turn them off.
