Hm, wonder if your isp dropped at the second you claimed it? Or it was an online glitch. I konw when your playing offline, your supposed to be the first one for every place you found. So if you somehow were offline(isp dropped, offline mode, etc) i could see this happening.

I took screenshots because it happened to me three times now, so I decided to stop playing for now. :P How does one switch between online and offline modes? (I assume I am already in online mode if I am seeing someone else's name appear as "firsts."

It's not my ISP

EDIT, I think you meant if I was in Steam Offline/Online modes? I am playing online, haven't had any hiccups (am our networks admin). I have a very stable connection.

yeah, if playing on steam, you SHOULD be in online mode already, unless you specifically turn it off. so its definitely odd, esp if your positve its NOT your isp.

i have time warner here that sporadically decides to turn itself off and on, so i always ask that question...esp since i also work for ATT uverse and know that online can drop occasionally, even if you dont see it.
I get notified if I have a D/C, and received none.

The game show promise, but this particular issue is pretty frustrating. I'll live, but it was a looooonnnngggg walk :D

I hear you for sure, its just that nobody has reported this issue yet so its uncharted territory for sure ;)

This is bizarre! I'm not quite sure why it's doing that. Can I please get the co-ordinates of that location if you're still near there? I'll look at the back-end of things and see what's happening!
I moved several tiles from the location. When I am home later I will see if I can find it again. I will reiterate that this did happen to me 3 times, and at least one other (for a total of 2/3 at least) of those times, the name of the person was the same as shown in the image above. I was not walking in a straight line, and I was very erratic in my attempt to find somewhere that would not be a common path (ie: not continuing in a straight line from the previous discovery). I will also mention, I came upon many other areas that were claimed already, and each was claimed by different names and seemed like legitimate land claims.

Could this even be a hack? I say this because the same name appeared to have discovered the same exact areas only after I "first" found them, and the last two were in such random locations from the other. I can't remember if the first of the three had the same name of the person, as I just passed it off to a glitch and moved on.

Well, I tried to log in and my save game (not permadeath toon) is now gone:

Going to do a file integrity check after this message.

Game cache integrity message: "2 files failed to validate and will be reaquired"

I am no longer able to retrieve the exact coordinates without running for 1½ hours since my save game is lost, so I will post a image showing the area I was in when I discovered the location depicted above. I highlighted my desert location with a pink dot:
*map is blown up to 200% in photoshop*

I will also mention that when I discovered a new area, I would hit F11, and the 3 times I mentioned previously, it told me I was the "First Ever" to discover the area. After I resumed (and remained in the same tile, and not having moved yet), I would hit F11 again thinking it would show "First Discovered by PRX sklurb" but instead it showed the name in the second OP screenshot

I will see if I can emulate the issue with Fraps later.

PS: the map is awesomely HUGE!

Inifinitely huge! :D

I'll see if I can replicate this at all.... If I find anything, I'll put out a fix for it in an update!
