Original gameplay map, main idea is to surprise players with unlikely situation. The good point is all events which are coming are random, so you will always improvise your strategy in terms of players, units they get, and their psychology.

Roll The Dice is a 8 players moba like map, FFA or teams. Each player spawns in an arena as a random unit. When that unit dies, another random one spawns for you to fight as. There are 8 outposts in the arena belonging to each player, and when destroyed the player loses. When you get kills, you earn money you can use to upgrade your units, your outpost, and more. Last tower remaining wins. Attack and gold bonus appear randomly on the map as relics and broken carts that you can pick.

This is a fun map with a part of luck, but this is also a very strategic game which need lot of reflexion. You can become skilled and win most of the time without luck. In fact, it's like poker. Skills are to know get kills with any unit, to have reflexes, know what to buy in the store, and know which player you have to attack. It could seem easy but it is not, define the player you have to attack depend of lot of factor. It is the weaker point of almost all players, they choose wrong target. Also there are too much random factors so there isn't a constant best buy order, you have to show reflection, always.

Play all visible map and ffa if beginner ! 8p advisable.

Game Full Hints:

How to win:

You have to be the last player alive, a player die when he lose his outpost. To achieve this, get kills in priority ! Teaming vs best player is often bad idea, don't forget you help other players to kill you by killing player who can kill them, it's pretty fun ! You have to survive and always check if you can handle the final 1v1 against the last player alive. During the game you shouldn't attack any players weaker than you, if they are last remaining you will win easy, so you want they stay alive, and you will even help them to survive. This is a very sneaky and important point which make difference between a noob player and a good player.

It is also very important to don't let players damage your outpost, having low HP is a big handicap, anybody can kill you easily. Pay attention to huns civ, it's the most powerful civ in early game since they can raze all outposts under 3000 HPs with only 11 carts !

Game random alterations:

Start messages: Be careful to messages at start, they notice to you all game alterations and RTD can be completely different: Outposts start HP, store prices, and outpost burning start time change each game. All prices alterations are noticed after your civ bonus with green color for discount prices and orange color for raised prices.

Outposts burning: There is a moment during the game where outposts begin to be damaged by random explosions, this moment is noticed at start by the dice number at middle (EG: 6 = 60 min, 3 = 30 min, etc.). Probabilities of explosions are increased each 10 minutes until 30 minutes elapsed, then the last way of explosions come 30 minutes later. For example if the first step begin at 30 min, then the second step will begin at 40 min.

An outpost burning explosion do 89 damages to your outpost.

Average damage per seconde:
- First step (0 => 10 minutes) => 0.7/sec
- Second step (10 => 20 minutes) => 1.4/sec
- Third step (20 => 30 minutes) => 2.8/sec
- Fourth step (30 => 60 minutes) => 5.6/sec
- Final step (60+ minutes) => 11.2/sec

Example: Here it will start at 50 minutes (number 5):

There are 3 mains store:
The Classic Store: You will get a cart each 5 gold.
The Super Store: You can buy super carts in the classic store for 3 carts.
The Food Store: This store is composed of 3 different kind of upgrade, you buy them with food.

Food store details:
Upgrades (Left): It's just upgrades that you buy with your food.
Items (Right): You can have only one item in same time, if you buy a new one you lose the previous one.
Spells (Middle): To cast a spell you have to suicide your VMDL, it cost also some wood, you may get it in late game.

If a player have an item he will have a torch with his color on it.

Units stats upgrades:

Civ Bonus:

The civ bonus are very specific to RTD, most of classic aoc bonus are deactivated. Check scouts to know more.

Frequently asked questions:

=> What's the island with relics at top ?
- At this island you can choose your streak kills bonus. When you reach the stone amount needed then you get the bonus, stone is streak kills counter.

=> How use shortcuts ?
- Sortcuts are really easy to use and are usefull gameplay tricks: Assign a number to them, and during the game for panic or reroll press the assigned number and right click anywhere in map. VLDM will go down and activate reroll or panic, then go back.

=> What are upgrades at bottom in store ?
These upgrades are technologies to have better units.

=> How unlock Final Power ?
You must buy all blacksmith upgrades (right) and units tech (bottom). It need 12 carts.

=> What means sniper ?
When you buy a sniper you can choose a player that you want damage. But damages aren't constant ! You can do, randomly, 1k, 2k, 3k, 4k or 5k damage.

=> Where can from outpost HP decrease/increase ? (They are adding together)
- +6/sec max from store
- -6/sec max from a player (-42 max from all players)

=> What "HP Decrease Divided by 2" upgrade means ?
This upgrade cuts all HP decrease from players in half. Example: 2 players bought -3HP/sec, then you lose -6HP/sec, if you buy "HP Decrease Divided by 2" you will lose only -3HP/sec.

=> What are rate multiplicators in super store ?
These upgrades multiplies the speed of your bank income, HP increase/decrease or middle bonus. E.G: If you buy Bank Rate x3 your bank will gives 1 gold/20 sec instead 1 gold/min.

=> What's this old stone head in store ?
This is the unknown upgrade which can be very interesting and powerful but it's random.

=> I don't understand how work some upgrades from the unknown upgrade.
Dysfuncionnal upgrades are bonus which come randomly (wood, gold, ap for your unit), panic dodger gives to you a chance (1/2) to don't be killed by panic. Lucky enchantment increases your chance to get an hero spawn by 3 and increase also your chance to get more gold and ap with broken carts and relics. Others upgrades are easy to understand.

=> Teams are detected ?
- Yes all possibilities are detected: Panic and HP decrease don't touch your ally.

=> What's the Noob Store ?
- Last player under 10 kills get a cart in the noob store to get help. Opened only in 6p, 7p or 8p game.

I really don't know what to buy, there are too much things !

It's not a problem, you will get used to all upgrades with time. Try to add, progressively, new upgrades to your strategy. Basically you can follow this buy order which is not bad and easy to handle:
Food Store:
1/ Just exchange all your food against gold, and try to use exchanger to steal enemies units
Stone Store:
1/ Do not touch it, the default contract is always good
Gold Store:
1/ Food Bonus (+1Food/30Sec) -> Good for economy, you will buy more gold with your food.
2/ Bank (+1Gold/Min) -> You will get more gold to buy new upgrades faster.
3/ Blacksmith upgrades -> It will help you to get kills, each kill gives +1 of each ressources so it's very important.
4/ Units upgrades -> You need it to have stronger units, and btw unlock final power.
5/ Final power (+1AP/+4HP/5Sec) -> Your core upgrade, you can get lot of kills.
6/ Ballistics + Chemistry -> Just needed...
7/ HP Increase (+3HP/Sec) -> To have a stronger outpost to resist to attacks and snipers.
8/ Medium Power (+1AP/+8HP/10Sec) -> Good HPs extension for final power.
9/ Then three possible ways:
=> Just get kills and try save enough gold to fight when you will go ultimate and mega
=> Buy wood to rush ultimate and mega, but you will have no gold so it could be harder
=> Just survive and save your gold to kill the last remaining player (Getting bank x3 is good in this case)

If much players target or try snipe your outpost, you have to get 90% damages resistance to prevent losing outpost HPs, it is the most important upgrade of the game to survive.

Probability for car is 1/1728, no more because there is also 8 others very strong units with same probability, therefore 1/192 for have a big advantage.

Mmmm idk for panic, it's hard to do a good gameplay, more than one can be not fun because players can never enjoy of his super units... I will add in store but probably at a high price.
