December 12, 2006: New Feature: HandoffsIf something happens to keep you from playing actively, and quitting would spoil the game for the other players, you can now give a game position to another player. The "handoff" link is on your Empire page.
PUB game owners can also do a handoff to give away an inactive position. The link is on the admin page, right beside the Boot link.
If a game is being played for points:
- The original player earns XP for the turns he played. The stand-in gets XP for the turns he plays.
- If the handoff takes place on or before turn 3, the original player gets no MP and the game does not affect his average. The stand-in gets MP and the game affects his average normally.
- If the handoff takes place on turn 4 or later, neither player gets MP and the game does not affect either one's average.
