If someone drops out after the first round they will be replaced by someone who was eliminated in the previous round. That person will be the person who was eliminated in the latest round. In the case of a tie, the person who took over the most territories in the course of that game will get the opportunity to replace the person who dropped. If there is still a tie we will continue in this fashion going back to the games from 2 rounds before. If in the unlikely event we get back to the first game and still have a tie, I will roll a random # between 1 and 10000 for each person in order of them joining the tournament. The person who rolls the highest will get the opportunity to replace the player who dropped
