After a certain period of time, unjoined games are deleted. Clan War and Tournament games should be excluded from this automatic deletion.
The following games were deleted from Grim Reapers vs Army of Kings' war; recreating them will be time consuming and ultimately this should not be necessary.

Game 13179406 Doubles City Mogul
Game 13179404 Doubles Canada
Game 13179399 Doubles Battle For Iraq!

Game 13179432 Quadruples Indochina
Game 13179428 Quadruples Eastern Hemisphere
For clan wars and tournaments, any number of factors may delay a game starting or being joined. I could understand deleting these after a long time has passed (one year), but ultimately as a percentage of total games wars and tournaments are not a huge factor, and the data storage requirements for Conquer Club are minimal to maintain these games for a longer period of time.
How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
- More flexibility for tournament organizers
- No frustrating game deletion
- Save time for not having to recreate potentially very large numbers of games
