DLC & Multiplayer
Hello people, how are you all doing?? Sorry bothering, I have a question.

I just purchased the game, but then realized there is a DLC too. Is the DLC a must to play on multiplayer or I can do fine without it. I purchased the game mostly to play with a friend, which I sent to him the free copy it cames with the game.

That's it, hope you can help me out. Thank you

PS: Is there is someone that wants to learn/play the game with me, just let me know, would be fun to play few games.

from experience the red dlc is not compulsory, i even think that players with/whitout can play together, just not with that stuffa ctive, one think you may want to consider is the co-op campaign the dlc offers, maybe being more fun for beginners that attempting the multiplayer experience, also have a deal on frozen synapse, may be worth a look to see if there is an offer on the dlc too (you pay via them but get steam keys)

Thanks for the info Matt. I'm not sure about getting it, any long-term player to help up decide??
GreenManGaming seems to link the game to some weird thing called "Capsule" and not Steam, which kinda sucks. Are you sure they provide Steam keys as well?

GMG currently do not provide Steam keys.

Can't really call my self a long-term player (have about 34 multiplayer match experience). The DLC is not a must have to play and enjoy this game. It brings you and additional unit (riot shield) which is one of the least used units in the game (usually) and an additional MP mode (Upload) which is the least played mode. It might also pring mutators (do you have mutators like douple kill?) but I'm not sure about that one. Imo the new SP content is irrilevant because this game is about 99,99 % about MP but someone might tell you excactly the opposite.

In short I would say that if you like the game buy the DLC but if you don't like it don't buy the DLC. It's very possible you haven't played the game enough to actually answer the question yet. If so just play some more until you can.

I hope my muttering helped at all.

Thank you Maetco, i'd been playing this game a lot, it's insanely good (for persons like me who love tactical strategy).

No problem. If you're interested there is a monthly tournament/league called Rock Paper Shotgun Frozen Synapse. Season 17 is on-going and sign-ups for season 18 will start about during the last week of February. And don't worry about your skill level. There are different divisions for different skill levels and new players start from the lowest. We've had a few players already who practically had zero experience before entering. If you're interested visit season 17 forum in and follow the up-coming instructions about joining season 18 (a new thread will be opened for it when the sign-ups start and until then any questions etc can be handled in the season 17 thread). Oh and regardless how you play FS remenber to enjoy it. One doesn't have to take too seriously it's more fun that way ;)
