The point in this thread was that Jimmy picked Australia #2, Maik picked the SAME territory #3 and he got it even though it was Jimmy's #2. It's possible with the order Farah just explained. (in other words, I got my answer.)
This thread wasn't about who gets which picks in case they are identical. Also, the 1 23 45 6 pattern is true only if picks are identical. If A and B have different #1s but have the same #2 and #3, B will get #2 and A will get #3.https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=20771508
Arcturus had 1st pick. LTC Dad got his #2 and Arcturus his #3.https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=19241813
Buns157 had 1st pick. Alex got #2 and #3, Buns157 #4 and #5 and so on.
The difference between these games is that on the first game, the players didn't pick the same #1, and on the second, the players picked identical. The only way it is possible is by what Farah said above.
