This would add to the problem of point inflation. I can't think of a way to recalculate points, especially if we (our collective thoughts) are trying to make it more fair to the person when someone gets busted.

this is truly a tough subject to combat to make it fair to all, and I admire the sincerity of the administrators on this site for not only doing anything they can with validity in this but listening to outside perspectives other then other mods.

You gotta appreciate a service that takes care of its people. Kudos, and nice suggestion lack, I think it will help the unaware problems from automatic booting of offenders in games.

Allowing teammates to inherit a kicked player's terrritories is a big benefit for them because it concentrates more territories in fewer players and potentially gives them area bonuses. This happened in a triples game recently and will likely ensure that team wins. A better approach is to convert the kicked player's armies to single neutrals so that team doesn't benefit from the change. Instead, they would suffer the loss of that player's armies each turn which would be fairer than benefitting them.

That would be quite unfair to someone who uknowingly was teamed up with a cheater.

See lack's post above, its a much more amicable solution. If a player is busted, but takes 3 turns to be removed from the game then you have a lot of warning and you can prepare for the changeover. The teammate isn't completely screwed though because they will eventually get cards and armies from their fallen teammate, even if it is 3 years later. This should balance both problems out, and will be much better than the current situation.
