Wondering what happens who wins when leaving

Hello just had a game where i was taking over , well ahead of the 2 computer(one was a medium, and one was a player who had left the game), then one other human player was there as well with only 2 countries . Now I'm wondering, because where I left (assuming a CPU played for me) vs the one human player who was left with 1-2 country's and only 2 troops, who is determined as the winner , would i get the victory if the CPU won for me? Or if the other player just leaves what would happen who would get the wi ? Me, blue or green, or no one ?

Hi Mark,

If you leave a game you are given a loss and the position you left in e.g if there are 2 others left in the game when you leave, you are 3rd. The AI that takes over for you has no baring on your position. If your AI wins, you do not win and are still given the 3rd place when you left.

As for what happens when you are the last human player and leave. If you leave or disconnect when you are the only human player in the game, the game will close and you are not given a win or loss. This occurs because a game must always have a host and once you as the only available host leave, the game ends.

I just noticed an error with this question. The second part is still valid as Greggy83 has also requested. 

However, with the first part I suppose I was trying to simplify this down to two players where it doesn't work (they would both receive and lose nothing as the game would come down to the CPU). What I'm more after is clarity that if (and at the extreme) one person won but everyone else (say 5 players) left at the same time, the winner would receive 1st, while all others would receive equal 6th. Would this then give the winner a great ranking score or a minimum ranking score?

Ok I'm seeing one little gap here you may be able to clarify. If two players are left, one leaves and the other gets beaten by the CPU, do they both receive 2nd? And if so, would this mean that when there are only two opponents left and one is an obvious winner, there would be no real point for the losing player to stay in the game since they'll get 2nd either way?

Great I'm pretty sure you guys nailed it for me , thanks for the response , and knowing that the game requires a host pretty much answeres it all for me yep thanks again and happy risking ! :)
I do have one more question, say I am in a game with 3 others (2 humans and 1 CPU) , then 2 of the humans besides me leave. So now it's just me and 3 CPUs playing aka I'm the host, does this mean if I just leave I get the win?, or I've got to play It out and beat all the AI to get the win ya?
All these guys left but I'm hoping to get the win and beat them all :)

Yessss alright sweet:) I got this won now, so I still get credit where as I played it out eh , where I beat all the players ( or Syked them out and they left lol) but either way I stuck it out and beat everyone there as host so I get the win, so i guess my question was: if I had just left the game , when it was just me There left would I have won ?

Yes you still get credit for beating them as if they were human players. If you had left, no you would not been given the win.

The easiest way to think about it is. If a player leaves, they loose, but you still have to beat their AI to get the win. 

Now I just had another game, so this last game, I was the last human in the game, red just left , and I'm killing his 2 counties , but another player green left and the AI just beat me , where I am the last human In the game do I get the win? Or does the CPU green?
Based on what SMG has said: yes, they would both get 2nd in that situation. I'm interested in your second question also, because I've heard conflicting info on whether you would get 2nd place or not if you dropped out when only one other player is left. SMG?


The green CPU gets the win, but the player who left does not. You need to actually win the game to get a win.

I think if a it comes down to just AI or if an AI wins then it is like the game never happened.
