It means the deadline is every 12 hours. Thus, you technically order twice a day.
So in a game that has the set up as orders twice a day, retreats twice a day, and builds twice a day, you have 12 hours to submit orders, then 12 hours to retreat, then 12 hours to build, and so on. Now, if it's the same set-up, except orders are set to once a day, then you have 24 hours to order, 12 to retreat, and 12 to build. Etc etc, for any combination.
