The game just stuck
It happen a lot. I think it's when a player just disconnect the internet. The kick Timer pass but the player isn't kicked and then the match just stuck. that is very bad and not just for the other players.
Hit the same problem today while starting a new game in the Season while players were picking their initial settlements. One player left which triggered the kick timer during their placement and even after the time expired we're all waiting for the AI to take over ( which it never did - waited 5 mins and then gave up and left ).
I have the same problem. Today I was stuck in 3 games. When quitting game, it says I will loss karma/Elo.
And for 2 of the game, it just kicked me out saying you were disconnected from internet for too long.
