Does pick order correlate with play order? If I get 1st pick in picks, do I always have 2nd move order Turn 1? 1v1 game, but I guess it works the same for team games and FFAs.

If it's cyclic, then yes.

Attacks will always be executed as such: A-BB-AA-BB-AA-...

Who gets orders A and who gets orders B is dependent on the move order setting.

If it's No-Luck Cyclic: the player who picks fastest (or plays the fastest first turn) gets the first pick. They then get the second move on the next turn (so B). After that, it switches every turn. If you were A on the first turn, you're B on the second turn, etcetera.

Cyclic works almost the same. The only difference is that at the beginning of the game, A and B are randomly chosen. So you get assigned either A or B at the start of the game. After that, it switches every turn.

Then there's random move order. Every turn, the game randomly decides who is A and who is B. Picks have nothing to do with who gets A or B

this is for 1v1's.

If you don't get your first pick in a 1v1, then you know you have the odd turns. Same for if you get both 2 and 3.

Thanks for the fast replys! I have to pick starting location on SE and my picks depend on whether I have knowledge on 1st turn move order (I pretty much know what my opponent will 1st pick). I figured it probably works like this, but then I had a game that seemed to work differently so I wanted to check. I probably just checked it wrong or it was using random move order.
