When building 'the core' of the map. Is the order of the tiles random, or do they have to alternate City State/Natural Wonder?

I have not seen any rule that says that they should be placed in order. Just randomize them.

Per the Advanced Map Building on page 14 of the rules, step 2 has you "take two random tilesthat have a natural wonder and two random tiles that have a city-state and shuffle all four together" (emphasis mine). Then in step 4 it says "Form the core by drawing and placing the core tiles, one at a time, into the center of the table" (again emphasis mine).

Based on creating a pile randomly and then drawing from that pile, it tells me that the order of the tiles are random.

I don't understand the graphical examples in the manual, specifically why they flipped sides A and B (when it is exactly the same thing).

I've started to alternate them we ran in an awkward scenario which resulted in the core tiles containing 2 adjacent city states. You coudn't technically settle a city near them, couldn't even explain to the people if they could or could not attack them.

Something happened in the last game we played.

2 players put their capital city tiles next to each other, therefore allowing their level one caravans to reach destination in one turn, generating a whole lot of trade tokens for these players, giving them a clear advantage.

I don't see anything in the rules preventing that, I think it was broken.

Any FAQ about that ?
