Z:SS Strategy Guide: Basic Stuff
 

Spreading: Known in other games as "octopus" style, it's simply a basic ability in Z:SS. Just spread your troops around and capture flags as fast as you can. To be really fast, forget the screen-borders or arrow keys scrolling. Z:SS has a super fast right mouse button pan feature, so use it or eat dust.

NEVER send all your troops to a single direction, spread them in every direction. In Z:SS some territories are more valuable than others, right, but you should account for that later. Send your fastest early units (psychos, sniper) to the furthest territories and the slowest (toughs, pyros) to the back and other nearby unassigned territories.

If you have a radar right at the start, use the minimap to spread quickly, without taking your eyes out of the command center. Select the unit(s) you want to send to one side and shift+click the white dots (flags) forming a path towards the probable front line. The front line(s) is(are) very easy to define since the maps are symmetrical and you can watch your enemy progress by the territories changing color in the minimap.

Each map demands a different tactic, but you should generally avoid sending your initial powerful tanks (heavy tanks, mobile missile, etc) to a single battle front.
