Warlight's turn order is "ABBAABBAA..." while the AI challenge's turn order (at least according to the description of the rules) is "ABABABA...".
It is only a small change and it will probably barely (if at all) influence strategies, but it would make seem to consolidate these into the same behaviour. I'd also say Warlight's behaviour is more balanced.

Clearly, I misread that. Still, it remains that the turn orders are different.
In warlight, it's "rnd -> ABBAABBAA..."
Here, it's "rnd -> AB -> rnd -> AB -> rnd -> AB"
where rnd means "assign a random player to A and the other to B".
(Please note that this can't be changed in warlight's settings either. There is a related setting. The default has the above sequence of events each turn, whereas the other option does "turn 1. rnd -> ABBAAABBAA..., turn 2. BAABBAABB..., turn 3. ABBAABBAA... etc")
