I was playing a 1v1 on the Small Earth map, and I lost pretty quickly, but when I went to the history I discovered something strange with our picks in comparison to what we had on turn one.
We both had Eastern Australia as our first pick, which he got because he submitted his picks first.
He had Venezuela as his second pick, and I had Egypt as my second pick.
He had Central America as his third, and I had Venezuela as my third.
So how did I get Venezuela? The way I see it, he got Eastern Australia based on being first, and should get Venezuela because it went uncontested, leaving me with Egypt and Central America. Is this an rare and unusual occurrence or am I just a noob?
