Today I hit the button to see the player rankings and I was the only one left on Houndsmoor ????
There have been cases with a player in a hood all by themselves which was the only condition that would allow you to switch hoods (or at least that's what I thought I saw in the forums before I was a mod :p)alive,
I have heard of many tails of low hood numbers, even got caught in on of 8 players but never hear of anyone in a hood of 1 !! So good luck with support and if they suggest you wait till next sort please refuse and ask for it to be done immediately. (they normally do nothing and suggest you wait!)
