Roach Racing Club

On the race

Racing overview

Roach Racing Club races are independent events where players enter their roaches for competing with each other. The goal of the race is to reach the finish line as quickly as possible. Each racing event happens on a certain racetrack that has its own conditions that affect the racing performance of roaches.
In technical terms, Roach Racing is a game with asynchronous multiplayer mechanics: the player chooses a strategy before each race and exercises no further control after the race has started.
The racing competition in Roach Racing Club can be considered tactical meta gameplay where players use their analytical and predictive skills and luck to win. A winning strategy requires selecting a right roach with suitable racing abilities for a particular race.
The success of a roach in a race depends on several factors:
  • Racing ability of a roach resulting from its genetics
  • Racetrack conditions based on ChainLink oracles such as weather, currency rates, etc.
  • Luck randomized by Chainlink VRF

Choosing a racing event

There are two types of racing events available to players:
  • Free events:
    – No entry fees
    – Prize pool in $MTGN for three winners
  • Events with entry fees:
    – Entry fees in wETH
    – Prize pool in wETH for three winners
    – Rewards in $MTGN for all race participants
Choosing an event should be done in accordance with a racing strategy as each racing event happens on a certain race track with dynamically changing conditions such as:
  • Distance
  • Weather
  • Surface
  • etc.

Choosing a roach

Choose the most suitable roach from your collection for the selected racing event. Choosing a roach in a good shape and genetic predisposition for specific race track conditions increases the chances of winning the race.

Running a race

Participants take starting positions with their roaches by sending transactions to the blockchain. When enough participants enter an event, the race begins. The race can be observed in real-time by both the participants and spectators. At the end of the race the prize pool is distributed among the top three winners.
