What is the meaning of this VvV message?

"The City is unoccupied! Slay opposing forces to claim the city for your guild!' I don't get it. There are 3 guilds in the city. Why does the game tell me the 'city is unoccupied'?

VvV is so buggy. I've also had the altars pop up faster than they should, and in the same spot repeatedly.

No doubt it is buggy. I ran into Brit seconds after the town went into battle and see a message that my guild had already claimed an alter! I'm the only one logged in from my guild. I got this message literally 3 tiles into the town. What the heck?

I've seen the 'claimed an altar' message - only the altar I claimed was at the end of the last town.
Town is unoccupied usually comes up when everyone in town is hidden or invis.

When you enter a "live" vvv town for the first time, you will occasionally see messages that appear to have hung over from the last vvv episode. If there is an active opposition guild in the town at that moment, they will usually also show in the 3 guild list. This doesn't happen if they hide/stealth or haven't actually gained points yet. However, when you DO see the message "unoccupied", it's because everyone, including you, is hidden or there are vvv enemies in the town and u better buff up..;p

Phrasing could be better - what it really means is that control of the town is contested. Hidden players no longer count towards control.
