Alliances between teams often included these swapping arrangements. This bug was later changed to give attacking units going head-on at each other a 50-50 probability of success, though that just created loop swaps, where territory B would conquer territory C, and A would conquer B, then the next turn C would conquer A and B would conquer C, and so forth — a bit more difficult but still doable.
