[NOT A BUG] All other players surr., but round isn't ending

Game Number: 163138
Fall 1903, Build

Some friends and I were starting a game together to see if we wanted to play Diplomacy, but between school, work and the holidays it sort of fell apart. Myself and one friend kept playing just to practice, but now that I've cornered him and he's surrendered the round isn't ending when I finalize my orders.

I was hoping to just quickly finish off the next few turns and gobble up enough territories to win, but instead it has me waiting the full three days for the round to end instead of ending when I finalize.

Yeah, it’s intended that games with surrendered positions don’t finalize. The idea is that it’s giving some time to recruit a replacement. The system isn’t currently built for Solitaire mode.

If you just want to terminate the game, you should be able to propose (and vote for) a draw that only includes yourself. It won’t be instantaneous, but that should clean it up.

As you’ve set a password to your game (no potential replacement players can join and help you have a proper game unless you publicly share the password and maybe even advertise to recruit new players) I suggest you follow that advice and get the draw done. In future if playing a private game - try to get your friends to stay!
