Your opponent should get first move if he uses a OP card.

The only reasons why you do not get first move when playing a OP-card are because 1) you both played one and he had first move or 2) your opponent played more OP-cards than you did.

NOTE: Even if you play two OP-cards and your opponent doesn`t play any you will only get your first order before his, it won`t benefit your second order anyhow.

This might seem like a silly question, but if you both used OP card on random move order. But you're desperate so you used two, would it have any affect on moving first or not?

Edit: Also the same question for delay cards?

Think of moves having 3 containers:

A) Priority moves

B) Normal moves

C) Delay moves


If you put orders in with no cards used, all are in container B.

If you use OP card, your first move goes into container A

If you use OD card, everything after that card goes into C


Once the turn progresses, it determines first move (by random or cyclical). It will do the moves from container A first (in the order for that turn). Then it will do the moves in container B (again, by that order). Then it will do the moves in container C (by turn order).

If you use a 2nd card of the same type, it creates another container of the same type.

So if 2 OP, you have another container before A (which your first move goes into).

If two OD, you have another container after C (call it D I guess). Whatever orders are after that card go in that container (you could have moves in C and D if you wanted...not sure why you would want to though).

2 OP are only effective on the first order, 2 OD are effective on every move that comes after them. (Which is logical when you think about it. OP you put one move more to the front, the rest doesn`t have to follow. OD pushes one move down, everything underneed that gets pushed down as well.)

So:

you're desperate so you used two, would it have any affect on moving first or not?

If your enemy played one OP card and you played two, then your first move goes before his.

Also the same question for delay cards

If he played one OD and you played two, then every move after your second OD card is ensured to go last. So if you play both of them as first two orders then all your orders will go after his, if for some reason you play your second OD card not directly after your first then all orders after that second OD card will go after your opponents orders, but all your orders that came after the first ODcard will follow the normal turncycle (so your and his orders will alter like as if there wasn`t a card played)

Thanks, I have always tried to explain it that way because people get caught up in how many moves they did, thinking the amount effects whether it is before or after a card. If you think of taking all your moves and separating them into those containers first, then you won't get confused at why you see 10 orders happen after your last one even though you submitted 20. Either your opponent submitted 30 moves, or he used an OD, so his 10 moves went into a container that gets processed by warlight after the container that all your moves were in.
