• Each player starts out in a small base at the edge of the map. Each base has a shop and a secret shop, an indestructible tower and a fountain.
  • In the middle of the map is the Midas Throne, around the edges is a river with rune locations, and some high ground walking paths.
    • Players near the Midas Throne receive faster gold and experience gains. (There is a circle around the Midas Throne. Once you are in the circle your increase is initiated. You will not gain more by being closer to the throne versus the outside of the circle.)
  • The Over Boss sits atop the Midas Throne, and throws out giant coins.
    • Picking up the coin gives 300 gold.
  • Killing the top rated player or a player in the leading team (the leader(s)) rewards a bonus 500 gold.
  • Some rune locations have a group of zombies with them. They deal 32 damage, have 250 health, 3 armor and 120 movement speed. These zombies will keep following you around the map. They give 20-35 gold when killed
  • All players gain vision of the area around each rune spot.


Overthrow Icon.png
Overthrow is a quick fight to the death in a small team free-for-all as players try to earn enough kills to win the match before the timer expires. Gather a friend or two, or go it alone as you stalk near the Midas Throne, which increases the gold and experience gains of nearby heroes. Snatch Gold Coins as they appear, or head out to claim an item delivery.

Item deliveries


  • On the Forest map, the first player who reaches the goal number of kills wins.
  • On team maps, the team with the most kills when the round ends wins.
  • If there is a tie at the end of a round, the game enters Sudden Death mode.
    • The team/player that then gains 1 more point than the current highest team/player will win.
    • This means all players can still win, and not only the players that were tied at the end of the game.
