KEYS TO VICTORY
Aside for the commands and moves, victory is just as much about the mind-games between two players, and FSP inspires you to anticipate and deceive your opponent.
Read the Terrain
Predict Your Opponents
Quick plans with simple paths and aiming can get the job done, but adding extra layers with the more advanced commands will give you an edge.
Use Targeting to eliminate the biggest threats first, or target specific areas.
Use the Continue-on-Sight and Slide commands to fine-tune your paths and aiming, so units are not moving slower through the map when they don’t need to.
Use the Check command to move quickly through rooms, only glancing in specific areas. If there’s a threat your unit will engage, if not he’ll be able to cover ground quickly.

The asynchronous multiplayer aspect of Frozen Synapse Prime allows you to have several games on the go at once, against friends and opponents around the world. The game alerts you when a turn has been made in one of your matches, and players can track and manage their matches via their Active Matches area.
There’s a variety of online modes to choose from; from classic deathmatch style of play to protecting VIPs, rescuing hostages, infiltrating and controlling areas of the map, collecting items to score points, and more!

How the simultaneous-turn-based combat system works in Prime:
1. Players on two separate teams plot paths and issue orders to their squad members, creating a plan on a turn-by-turn basis. You have the option of simulating the plan before you commit to it.
2. Both teams then commit their plans for each turn; we call this ‘Priming’ a turn.
3. Once both players have primed their turns the outcome of both teams’ plans is played out and the resulting combat ensues.
Once you wrap your head around that, you will need to try and predict your opponent’s strategies, wipe them out, or complete a set of match objectives – depending on the match type. Reading the environment and working with the strengths and positioning of your squad is key to victory.
