Level Difficulty
I'm not new to these type of games, but I'm also no expert.

Is there a way to change the difficulty. I keep dying and am always outnumbered by at least 4 to 3. Am I that bad a player, (as I keep dying and I'm only through level 3 Single Player), or does the AI need rebalancing.

As I said, I'm not new, and have done reasonably well in games like Wasteland, Xcom, Breach and Clear, etc. But it tookme several attempts to get through level 3 and I have yet to defeat level 4.

Thanks for any advice or assistance.

As far as I know, there is no difficulty option.

It's been a while since I played the game, but I remember having these difficulties also at first. The primary cause is because the tutorial doesn't do a thorough job of teaching several important mechanics like "ignore enemy/zone" and such.

Because of the simultaneous turn-based nature of Frozen Synapse, other alternate-turn games like XCOM and Wasteland are not good trainers for this one.

My best suggestion is to do what I did, which is to ignore the single-player for a while and start doing Extermination multiplayer matches instead. You're going to lose most of them at first, but you will also be able to see exactly what moves your opponent made once the match is over, which does a much better job of teaching than the tutorial does.

The Singleplayer is kinda tough and losing 4-5 times in a mission is normal.My only advice would be to think 10-15 mins before committing a turn(in the Singleplayer mode).If u think of (almost) all the possible moves that u/ur opponent can make then u will almost certainly win the mission.Even i had the same problems initially but now i think 4-5 times before committing a turn and i can easily win most of the missions(even the ones in which i am outnumbered) with 0 casualties.
