Default Keeping Helpful Enemy Dominion Alive...

Do you ever hold off on wiping out an enemy player's last province if his dominion is helping you. eg Magic scales? Does enemy dominion vanish once the last province falls or does it linger? I can't recall...thanks.

I was keeping MA C'tis miasma dominion alive [not conquering last fort] because other player had most of his lands. And I wanted him to suffer

Sneaky. That is what I thought.

Yes, when there is such a situation. Though the positive side of their scales won't help you unless your own scales are negative. Their dominion vanishes instantly when their god is destroyed, but their scales remain.

Yeah its not possible to ever benefit from positivie enemy scales - tho you can be harmed by negative enemy scales. So the best situation you can hope for is to have terrible scales of your own and have enemy dominion bring you to nuetral.

Interestingly enough, enemy Luck is considered Misfortune.

I have Drain - 3 (want to see if I can make it work), they have Magic 3 - it is definitely helping me.

Are you actually getting the research bonus from Magic in enemy dominion? As was said, it should only negate the research penalty of Drain.

Negating the research penalty would be pretty helpful.

Its negating the penalty as was said. I wasn't contesting that point - just wasn't clear on what Ironhawk had said when he said it was never possible to benefit but I see his point now - I am not getting the bonus - but as I said, it is definitely helpful not to suffer the penalty.
