Is it a bad idea to randomize the order of List[Moves] when getLegalMoves is used? for the alphabeta

As far as I know getLegalMoves() does not order the moves in any particular way. In effect they are already randomized. (I'm not sure about that, but I believe that's true.) Even if the moves were ordered, it shouldn't make any difference to alpha-beta. So to answer your question, I can't think of any reason why randomizing the moves would make a difference one way or the other.
