I assume that, if what Caspian says does end up being the case, there will be a way to keep it from being "first one here gets it!" As that would lead to a lot of rage I imagine. Maybe a right of first refusal for the highest influence mayor in the county, second refusal for second highest, etc.
edit: or a bidding system with EP. Whoever puts down the most EP gets the title of count, which could create an interesting balancing act between what you're willing to spend on being a count and what you're willing to spend to build up your city during Exposition
Not first come gets it, but first to buy gets it.
Caspian: "And in a crazy effort to add a bit of game theory to the Dance of Dynasties, these settlements and domains which exist after D&SS ends will receive progressively higher and higher discounts! So the question will become, do you snag that available domain or settlement in an effort to take advantage of the event, or do you hold out longer in hopes of getting a better deal but risk losing the domain or settlement you've been eyeing to someone else?!"
That would indicate that it is all about who is ready to pounce on that title first. Even if you have 5 Mayors drop into an NPC County hoping to upgrade to a Count after D&SS, it will be the Mayor with the quickest trigger finger (and/or willing to pay more instead of letting the title depreciate in value) that will lay claim to the County.
