Sometimes players think that WarLight distributes all of the 1s, then all of the 2s, etc. This isn't how WarLight works. However, people that think WarLight works this way will sometimes be surprised to see someone get a territory that they ranked lower than someone else who missed it did.
You got 1st pick - South America
He got his 1st and second: Antarctica ans Australia
Then your two territories: 2nd pick - Central America and 5th (Indonesia), as your 3rd and 4th are both taken
