1) Claiming Taking HOURS where I have to set aside 6 hours of my playing and enjoyment of the game to babysit a claim is pointless and would make a few people quit playing this early on in the game.
2) Every time ANY random person runs through the claim my entire progress is reset, they aren't even from the company I'm trying to claim from.
Now I'm not opposed to the 6 hours, but making progress reset every time a random person runs through a claim is ridiculous, the company I'm trying to claim from haven't been online in more then a week. I suspect its school going kids, who have now gone back to school and will not be playing anytime soon.
How to Fix this "tiny" issue:
1) Allow me to move away from the flag, and that timer needs to significantly reduce the longer someone is offline... a minimum of 1 Hour would be fine.
2) Just remove this, if a 3rd Party wants to join in on the claim war they should also need to place a flag to interrupt my claiming process, the only person(s) that should interrupt a claim is the company that I am claiming from, and even then it should never be an instant reset, it should tick down for them as it has to tick up for me.
I think I've been fair in my comment here, any kind of response from the Developers would be much appreciated.
