Random Move Order vs Cyclic Move Order: 7/16/2018 14:01:43

A question about Turn Order.

What is the difference between Random Move Order and Cyclic Move Order?

I understand that, in a 1v1 Cyclic move Order, if first turn was ABBAABBAA etc., the second turn will be BAABBAABB etc.

In Random Move Order will it always be XYYXXYYXX etc, while Warzone determines randomly every single turn who is player X and who is player Y?

I read carefully https://www.warzone.com/wiki/Move_Order but I got confused by the sentence "Each player's first order is executed in this random order, then each player's second order, and each player's third." It suggests that the order is XYXYXYXY etc.

Thanks for helping.

It's also in the ABBA format, but who is A and who is B is random.

(Worst setting ever)

Yeah, Cowboy described the mechanics correctly. I wrote a little more in depth explanation in my strategy guide which also contains the move order mechanics mechanics with priority and delay cards involved:

The strange thing is there that no luck cycle was introduced to make WarLight a pure game of skill so coin games couldn't be seen as gambling. However with order delay cards involved apparently the move order still becomes random again.

I think, in cyclic or NLC move order, if one moves second in turn 'n', turn 'n+1' he will move first (and vice versa). But with random move order one can get consecutive first moves, because of the 50% toss up.

Then what is the pattern please, since I tested it with cycle.
