Back to the Code: How are moves ordered?

What is the ordering of player moves?
Two players are adjacent to a neutral cell and both move onto it, who wins the race?

After a Timeshift is the race reresovled or is it remembered (may not matter if the decision is non-random).

Corollary: One bot encloses an area and the second enters the enclosed area, Is this race resolved differently.

Players seem to move simultaneously.
So if both players move to a neutral cell at the same time, neither of them get it. (Which may cause problems if your bot is programmed to go to the nearest open cell)
The timeshift does not matter.

If player 1 encloses an area and player 2 enters the enclosed area simultaneously, player 1 does not gain ownership of the enclosed area.
