Terms & Strategy Tips
Game terms are defined below. Strategy Tips are purposely cryptic. How fun would it be if the game was easy?
Profile - This is your Riot Racers profile page that showcases the different assets you own. It is customizable in the Riot Racers website app and can be found at riotracers.com/rr/YOUR-USER-NAME.
Drivers - Drivers impact 20% of the outcome of the race and have the following skill traits: Speed, Braking, Handling, Endurance, and Vision. Skill traits range from 50 to 100. Each driver also has an overall rating that is the sum of all the skill trait values and gives you a high level view of how skilled the driver is. Drivers can also be renamed by selecting the driver and clicking the pencil icon near the name.
Assets - The game has NFT assets on the Ethereum layer two Polygon Chain in the form of Drivers, Cars, Gas Stations, Racetrack Land, Billboard Land, and Mechanic Shops.
ROC - Riot Owners Club is a loyalty rewards club where owners of Genesis Collection assets earn RIOT token rewards.
RIOT Token - An Ethereum ERC-20 based token that is the currency of the game and can be traded on Uniswap (ETH Mainnet) and Quickswap (Polygon).
Race Conditions - Before entering a race you can view the Weather, Track, and Pit Conditions of each race. Keep this information in mind as you choose your Driver, Car, and Racing Strategy.
Race Strategy - This impacts 51% of the outcome of the race and contains all the elements listed below.
Race Posture - This is how your Driver will act as they navigate the race track. Options are Aggressive, Defensive, Offensive, Quiet Strength, and Reactive. 🧰 Strategy Tip - Consider how each posture would impact your driving ability given the weather and track conditions.
Racing Line - This is the primary area of the track your Driver will stick to as they navigate the track. Options are Tight, Wide, and Racing. 🧰 Strategy Tip - Tight is more aggressive, wide is more cautious.
Engine Strategy - This is the strategy your pit crew uses to tune your engine before the race. Options are Regular, Over tuned, Under tuned. 🧰 Strategy Tip - Don't let your pit crew take chances unless you can afford to use them.
Braking Technique - This is how your Driver will brake as they race and try to beat all the other racers. Options are Bulk Braking, Soft Braking, Universal Braking, and Late Braking. Bulk Braking allows the car to take full advantage of the track and leverages the directional momentum of the car to slow it down. Soft Braking is most conservative of braking techniques. Universal Braking applies the front and rear brakes evenly. Late braking is similar to Bulk Braking but doesn't take as much advantage of the track. 🧰 Strategy Tip - If you are late for dinner, cut corners on your way home.
Tire Strategy - This strategy is based on what Tire Upgrades your car has. Level 0 is a standard tire. Level 1 is a medium soft tire. Level 2 is a soft tire. Level 3 is an extra soft tire. 🧰 Strategy Tip - Standard tires have tread, soft tires do not.
Acceleration Strategy - This strategy determines how your driver will approach accelerating on the race track. Options are Endurance and Fast Break. 🧰 Strategy Tip - Hit the highway like a battering ram, like a bat out of hell, when the metal is hot.
