I'm too scared to touch RTA but at the same time, I want to get started in RTA. What units are currently meta? Any units should I invest in?

    I haven't experienced much RTA myself, but as some general notes for PvP I've noticed the following:

    Dispelling buffs is a very powerful ability, so characters like Alencia can be situationally very powerful against buff-heavy users, such as getting rid of Aria's group-wide stealth and automatic counterattacking buff.

    Apocalypse Ravi is powerful all-around, and has the capability to revive fallen allies.

    Characters with revivals are very good in general, especially against cleave comps. So Maid Chloe, Ruele of Light, and the like can be very good to have against those teams dedicated to high octane burst.

    Having a good opener can mean a lot in PvP. Usually I see someone like Peira, Faithless Lidica, and Lua used to immediately shut down the enemy's chance to counterattack by either disabling their ability to be buffed, cripple their combat readiness, or delay add turns to their cooldowns.

    Honorable mention to Sinful Angelica and Angel of Light Angelica for buffs and dispelling debuffs.

    Rimuru or Violet are also seen quite often.
    Very often you also see Conquerer Lilias or Lionheart Cermia. Both are strong openers
    Fallen Cecilia is also a good unit because she gives your whole team skill immunity.

    Part 1:

    Well it's a difficult topic. While doing regular arena, GW, or any PVE you pick characters around the specific mechanics opponent's lineup utilize, RTA works differently due to bans and pick orders. Overall, you want to always have reliable options, depending on you playstyle.
    If you're up to play beefy bruisers, you start with carries - Choux, A.Ravi, I.Khawazu, Violet etc. Such heroes are a power-pick, as they require opponent to draft around them.
    After that, you add buffers/debuffers or heals: ML Chloe,Destina, Ruele, AoL, Peira etc. Generally you want to draft these heroes early, due to them being a popular and very prominent force in RTA, so you should be wary of overpicks. The same goes for carries too.

    Part 2:

    The last two slots are usually reserved for technical counters and auxiliary carries - you can't just pick A.Ravi + 4 supports, because your opponent will simply post-ban Ravi and abuse your healers till they give off. However, if you pick A.Ravi, and your opponent responds with Choux and Adin, you may last-pick Alencia, so he will have to decide whether he is scared of losing his buffs, and have Choux eaten alive by Al, or remove Alencia and deal with A.Ravi. That's where mind-games come into play. If your opponent chooses Choux, he might as well pick Alencia early, not to give you a chance to counter.That's what makes certain heroes explicitly good in RTA - you cant just ignore some threats when they are manually controlled.

    Part 3:
    However, all the things above mostly relate to the most  fundamental bruiser gameplan - which coincides with general RTA logics - but there also are aggro/cleave/control/combo archetypes - each of them plays differently. Sometimes during the draft you may get heroes overpicked, thus inducing the plan shift. Opponent managed to get Alencia, A.Ravi and Choux - well, you better prepare some strips and strong damage dealers like ML Khawazu, Straze and Adin. He goes for Ran+Sizeria combo? Try overpicking Peira, and ban Ran. You first-picked Violet and he goes for Zahhak? Prepare to ban Zahhak, but pick Politis in case he enforces another must-ban.This stuff is very complex, and requires a lot of understanding in terms of game balance. Yet the best way to learn is to play, so go for it!

    Considering the characters:
    Aforementioned ARavi, Alencia, Choux, Ran, Violet, Senya, Zio, Belian are strong first-picks.
    ML Chloe and Destina are among the best supports right now. Singelica and Aolica both make for strong and reliable annoyances. Lua, Peira and Solitaria do very annoying stuff, but require high speed gear to make things work. ML Khawazu, Celine, Straze, ML Cermia, SC Carrot, Rem, Light Adin are great can-openers and over-all multi-purpose units. SC Ras and SC Arowel are incredibly great tanks, and very budget at that.
