The server message in the screenshot look suspicious to me, especially the "has surrendered"

original host= I don't know

What happened: side 4 lost connection (told so in chat afterwards). That's what the first three lines from <server> is about.
4th <server> line: gives control back, so far clear
5th to 7th <server> line: what happened here? Maybe the host accidentally made him an observer? But if so, why the surrendered message...
8th <sever> line: so quickly after the others, that there was no chance that side 3 could have surrendered+left the game and rejoined since then.


game data:
game still runs on the MP server now.
title: Aquamarins Partie
happened around turn 12/13
savefile: ANL_DC.txt

There are more strange moments, this game is worth an analysis:

in turn 14:
there also was another connection loss in-between since then (which may be completely fine)

It certainly looks odd when Aquamarin gets control back of side 4 and Alastor25 (side 3) becomes an observer for some reason, yet the chat messages still come in as side 3 and the server agrees or it would have rewritten the side... Looks like an off-by-one error but there must be some special circumstances or giving control would do weird things all the time.

Perhaps relevant is that the server noted Alastor25 left the game as an observer before the game started but it then started fine with him. He originally joined as an observer so maybe that comes from switching him to a player. Still could be an inconsistency that leads to the weirdness when control is passed around later.

Btw, I suggest to find the cause of the very first error, not much use in guessing what follow-up craziness happens. Especially without knowing exactly what commands the players sent.
