If you cancel the games there would be just as many complaints on a slightly different topic. Let's think about all the games you are just about to win. The game hasn't finished yet, but there is no way it can be turned around, you just have to play it out. Your opponent is then busted as a multi and the game is canceled. Wouldn't you feel robbed of those points?

Me and my teammate are about to lose to a player that missed about 10% of his turns. For reference look at this game;
We were, embarassingly enough, having more problems with these guys than we should have had. Blue in this game joins every doubles game he can find and missed turns constantly. Today, yellow got kicked out for cheating, and blue inherited all his territories. He now has 21 army bonus on the canadian map because he just inherited, and was able to complete all these nice new territory bonuses. Plus, he just missed a turn, so he gets 21 armies for a turn previously that his teammate was still here for!
He would have had 4 armies, with 4 armies deferred, but now he gets 21 armies with 21 armies deferred.
I'm confident that we would have won this game, since blue would have most likely missed more turns, but now yellow gets kicked for being a cheater and me and my team gets nailed for it? We'll lost our shirts in points on this game, and this is a fix that's going to stay?
This is actually a bug, and not part of the new feature I believe. Blue did not own the continent when he missed his turn and therefore should not get those troops deferred. I'll post it in bug reports for you.

The code would be something of a problem, but this site is full of genius's I reckon, so someone could code it.
This one is actually a good suggestion. Many people would like to have 1v1 team games anyway (where each player is controlling both sides of a team) and this coding would have the same effect. It would be really nice, but I imagine it would take quite a while to add.
