This is interesting

How can this happen? Two user names, each with the same outpost map and each with the same types/lvls of defenders and with the same names. Is it possible to change a user name?

    One is most probably a bot of the other.

    You can change your username, though, but only once.

    Maybe it wasn't two different users but the same user twice! Maybe you hit a clone bot outpost. Maybe some more info that made more sense woukd help.

    Whooooooaaaaa. mind blown.

    Nothing new, we've always had bot/clone versions of our outposts. Apparently NG names them, but it mirrors our own.

    Some of the ones near your current search range are:

    JohnnyDives = Tim
    Norskcord = Theresa
    Slick = Odin
    Danilo = Amber
    Cassandra = EvaB00
    Cimrim = Carlos
    Jodi = Andrea
    Mon1ca = secret. Come raid and find out

    If player changes their defenders/set-up, the clone will also change accordingly. Players won't see the raid in their logs when you raid their bot/clone version.

    (It's interesting to learn the clone name of our own outpost, but that usually requires another player to inform us. @sborg - I've come across your clone version before too right after raiding you, but cannot recall the name)

    If my shield goes up and my LLS aren't in there already and I'm doing other things (challenges, etc.) they go in there. Grim clone has a crappy defense

    This one was named Virginia and I believe the other name was mike. Not absolutely positive because I can no longer find mike in my logs. In each case the map was Lake 4/4. There are two hunters and a bruiser. What stuck in my mind was the bruiser's name, Nudelholz, which is German for rolling pin.

    How are these clones created?

    By replicating the DNA and mixing it into a mouse OR when your shield goes up and you go offline a clone is made to keep others from only finding 5 outposts.
