3.      Rules of Artificial Intelligence Usage

(a) A Game Master will enter AI orders if a player is N.M.R in a silent game (acting as a team captain)

(b) A Game Master will enter AI orders just after a player is replaced and position is available when replacement is “expected to be difficult to find” (usually because position is weak). A message is then sent to all players of the game.

(c) It is important that players know that even if a position is vacant, some orders were still entered for the power, and that they enter their orders knowing this. Therefore deadline may not occur just after entering AI orders, but with enough time for players to be aware of the situation.

(e) Decision of entering AI orders or waiting for replacement is left at the Game Master 's discretion.
