I had a game where a player was replaced by a bot. The bot was doing very weak. One of the opponents declared a War over Culture against the bot and won about 40 culture points., pushing the bot to a sure last place I also declared a War over Culture against the bot and then it resigned. LOL.
So the question is: what is the algorithm on bots resigning? Some number of culture points it is behind, is there some randomness involved?
Players being replaced by bots is already annoying, but probably there are no other good solutions to abandoning players. Would be nice though if bots would not have such big influence on the remaining players.
