the 'you have been defeated' message usualy maks the end of the game for you, but as long as there are still at least 2 sides fighting it's still possible that you get a leader back by wml.

In multiplayer, with 3 or more teams, it can be confusing for the player when a team's last leader dies as the player doesn't know that they've lost, until someone wins. (It can sometimes be pointless playing, especially when playing against the AI.)

There would be absolutely no changes to game mechanics; only more accurate information to be given to the player.

I propose adding a dialog when a team's last leader dies: "You have been defeated" with perhaps an additional note "You can continue playing until a winner is declared."

The current "You have been defeated" dialog could then be "Player/Team X is victorious!"
