So I managed to fail a territory fight in GTA:SA
cause that territory is now nomans land. no gangs there at all. It happened when bunch of ballas run away from the territory and got stuck far away across highway. after cleaning up everyone else seven of those guys were left. i had to run towards them, away from fighting ground (could not snipe them) but before i killed the last dude who was nowhere to be seen (he was on minimap) i was told that i failed takeover because i run away from the fight.
and now that area lost its color on the map and no gangs spawn there.
doesn't matter much but it was weird.
