Completely agree, games are taking way longer and second place almost always goes to an inactive player.
Yes every game this happens.. A player goes inactive and then the armies just draft but never attack. This could go on for maybe 40 rounds and then randomly they start to attack. It totally messes up the game.. They should continue to attack. Sometimes they have so much larger numbers and could take out someone who holds a continent, but they don't.
Yes, not sure why this is happening now but the computer is not taking over like it used to.
