The bidding system is non-intuitive.  Based on my understand, it worked correctly given the information you provided.

 

"i chose usa with 0 inf"

 

The game translates this as you saying "I want to play USA - but if my opponent wants to play USA, I will not pay him extra influence to convince him to play Soviets (so I can play USA)."

 

"my opponent chose soviets with 1 inf"

 

The game translates this as your opponent saying "I want to play Soviets - but if my opponent wants to play Soviets, I will pay him 1 extra influence to convince him to play USA (so I can play Soviets)."

 

The game takes these two statements and determines that you can both play the sides you want to play (since you want to play different sides anyhow), so no one has to pay anyone extra influence for the privilege of getting the side they want.

 

So when your opponent bid 1 as Soviets, he was only offering you 1 influence if you had wanted to play Soviets as well.  Since you wanted to play Americans anyway, the bid is disregarded.
