By a vote of 6-5, Squirrelgate is the official winner of TES4. The old topic is basically full, so opening this one so we can have a topic staying open for continued discussion, as there will likely be a lot of postgame discussions to have.

It was randomized from among all those meeting the conditions.

Then why did I try to be first?

that whole situation was a mess tbh, and it had insane ramifications considering one of Jorep/Quick would've gone home instead of Ceci

Because I was trying to make people believe speed was the tie-breaker so that I could do it quickly myself and then have everyone else "not bother" to even finish visiting all the locations, therefore causing there to be less people with which I have to compete during randomization.

But then you were too darn fast to even get the chance to observe that I was fast.

If that was the Winter Zombie one, then yeah, we had to randomize it between the players who met the conditions. It was a task that theoretically anyone could have done, but there would have been no reason to strategically, so design-wise it wouldn't matter since the only person that likely would have tried is the person who had the clue. And being an esoteric condition to fulfill, it would be somewhat easy for someone to win it and remain secret about having it.

All of that was moot since the clue was shared, and as a result many people tried for it. We didn't initially have a tie-breaker in place, and didn't want to go with first or last, since it would make it a timezone-biased condition, and as a result randomization was the best that could be done once the info had been disseminated.

The clue did say be the first to visit all the locations, right? I did everything in my power to make sure I was first.

I would have to dig around to find the exact wording of the clue, but it would have been the person who visited all locations first in terms of who did it in the earliest round. We were asked about how the tiebreaking would work considering that wording, and it was confirmed to the clue getter (since we couldn't confirm that info for anyone else as the existence of such a clue wasn't even public knowledge, let alone its contents).
