Default How can an AI nation die if it is a huge empire?

So Im playing a single player game and I am very satisfied with the AI nation growth and then all of the sudden one of the biggest empires God has been vanquished and the whole empire turns independent. How does this happen? If their God is killed cant they recall?

If any player, at any point, has no provinces on the map with at least 1 dominion in it, that player is out of the game. Thus, a massively large empire can conceivably just get wiped out in a turn if someone pulls off a dominion kill -- stealthy preachers, massive blood sacrifices on one turn, etc.

Pretty nasty, really. But it's a cautionary tale -- take good care of that dominion and be alarmed if you start seeing a lot of black candles in your territory.

(This thread should probably be moved over to general Dom3 discussion.)

It usually happens to EA or LA Mictlan: The AI don't make blood sacrifices, so its dominion doesn't spread and gets smothered by its neighbours or a bad random event, and they die.

The game is called *DOMINIONS*. No dominion = you're dead. The AI isn't good at protecting it's dominion.
