The reason the game ended was due to you being auto-booted by the server due to the 100+ day rule, or something like it. (It can be called the 115+ Day Rule as well for reasons below)

When update 1.1 occurred, Fizzr added in a part where any game that went over 100+ would cause any players that did not take their turns yet to issue out a warning by e-mail. Should those players still not take their turn, then the server would force auto-boot the player after at least 14 days so that the game can be finished and added to the archive of games.

Here is a link to the list of major changes that occurred in the 1.1 update: http://blog.warlight.net/index.php/2012/01/warlight-update-1-10/

The new abandoned games policy did its first boots this weekend. You can read about it here: http://wiki.warlight.net/index.php/Abandoned_games. Any games that don't advance for 100 days are considered abandoned by their players.

You were sent a warning e-mail you that you'd be booted in this game three weeks ago. Really though, you should be playing single-player games on the single-player tab, as those will never expire and every turn of every game on the multi-player tab costs me 0.03 cents, whereas single-player games are free :)

What about tournament games where one side is bound to win? I am in an ongoing round-robin tournament where at least 2 players are inactive and there is no auto-boot timer. In normal games abandoning would mean boot from both sides = vote to end, but what happens in the tournament?
