For a brand new participant, it could possibly get very complicated within the first few video games. Let’s take a fast have a look at how Dota Auto Chess is to be performed and the intricacies concerned in it.


Game Start

The sport begins with you because the courier. The courier is the piece that controls all the pieces. There are a complete of eight gamers and the final survivor is the winner. Every participant has his personal battlefield that appears like a chess board. The first a part of the method is to pick a hero. Every participant’s preliminary gold is 1 and all of the preliminary heroes out there price 1 gold. The first course of to pick a hero.

You will discover that each hero falls into two classes – Species and Class. For instance, Bounty Hunter is Goblin species and Assassin class whereas Dragon Knight has Human and Dragon as species and Knight as class. There are a complete of 52 heroes in Dota Auto Chess proper now and all of them are divided in keeping with species and sophistication. Dragon Knight, Lycan and Puck are the one three heroes which have two species related to them. Every hero has one capability from Dota 2 and it performs an enormous half in how good a sure hero is.

The classes play an essential position in formulating methods, however extra on that later. For now, upon getting the primary hero, click on on the courier, click on ‘T’ and transfer the hero wherever in your half of the chess board.  The first three rounds are battling it out towards creeps. The creeps drop objects which could be picked up utilizing the courier and could be given to heroes. After each spherical, you achieve expertise which will get you ranges. As you achieve ranges, you possibly can have extra heroes on the board.

In the picture above, the tab on prime says 2/three chesses. That means the participant at present has 2 heroes on the board for now and may have a most of three. The participant’s gold could be seen to the fitting of that. Gold can be utilized to purchase heroes or achieve fast expertise (5 gold for four expertise factors) to stage up. Pressing ‘alt’ reveals what number of extra factors are wanted for a stage up. Items can’t be bought with gold and are solely out there after they fall after killing impartial creeps.

As the sport goes on, you rack up extra gold and can purchase extra heroes. All heroes initially are 1-star heroes. Putting three 1-begin heroes (similar hero) on the chess board on the similar time combines them to make a 2-star hero. For instance, three 1-star Luna’s on the board will give a participant one 2-star Luna. Three 2-star Luna’s will give one three-begin Luna. So mainly to get a three-begin model of a hero, a participant will want 9 1-star variations of the hero! Upgrading a hero will increase his/her HP, talent stage and the injury carried out to the enemy courier.In case the 5 heroes showing in entrance of you aren’t those you need, you possibly can at all times spend 2 gold, refresh and get a recent set of 5 new heroes. But keep in mind, if the brand new set additionally doesn’t have any good hero, that’s 2 gold misplaced completely. Heroes could be bought for the value them have been purchased for. The button to promote is to the left of the refresh button on the courier.




As your stage will increase, ensure you put extra heroes on the market on the board. By the tip of spherical three, everyone seems to be at stage three and has three heroes of their arsenal. Round 4 is when the battles between gamers begin. Whatever military you could have on the chess board will tackle the military of a random participant that can come on the opposite half of your board. At the identical time, your hero military will journey to another person’s board to problem them on their house turf (it may very well be any of the opposite seven gamers). The battle takes place mechanically with out the gamers having to do something. An auto battle on a battle subject that appears like a chess board utilizing Dota 2 heroes – Dota Auto Chess! That’s one of many massive mysteries of life solved.

Home turf battle
If you win the battle on your property turf, i.e., by yourself chess board, the courier takes no injury. But when you lose, the courier takes injury relying on what number of items are standing. The whole injury taken is:

Damage = Total variety of stars remaining + Total variety of summons

If a three star Nature’s Prophet, 2 star Juggernaut and a Treant is left standing on the finish, the full injury the courier will take might be three+2+1 = 6. When your courier takes 100 injury, you lose. Initially the injury is low. But in a while within the sport when gamers include giant armies, that injury tends to extend.

Away turf battle
At the identical time if you find yourself defending your board, the identical military of heroes you could have additionally travels to another person’s board to combat them. If you win, the opposite participant’s courier finally ends up taking injury.



There are loads of methods concerned within the sport. The primary rule is, when you’ve got a number of heroes of the identical species or class, there’s a bonus related to it. For instance:

– If you could have three Warriors on the board, the armor of all pleasant Warriors might be elevated by eight

– If you could have 2 Trolls on the board, assault velocity of all pleasant Trolls is elevated by 30

And there are such advantages for each species and sophistication! That provides you an thought of all of the completely different prospects and combos. Certain species/lessons are good early sport however don’t scale into the late sport whereas others take a beating early on however develop stronger as the sport progresses. That’s one thing for each participant to expertise as he/she unlocks the secrets and techniques of Dota Auto Chess.

Positioning the items in a sure manner additionally makes a distinction. The tanks are to be stored forward whereas ranged injury sellers like Tinker and Lina are finest stored behind. But the Assassin class makes certain that they leap to the backlines to kill these ranged injury sellers so in some battles, that technique can completely fail!



Gold could be earned in 3 ways in Dota Auto Chess:

1) Defeating an opponent will get 1 gold
2) Having a profitable streak or shedding streak (sure, shedding streak) can rise up to three gold
three) Interest which is 10% of your residual gold

There are literally methods based mostly on shedding early sport, racking up the gold with shedding streaks and curiosity after which coming again sturdy to win!


I’ve simply performed a handful of Dota Auto Chess video games and I’m already hooked! With the sport getting so well-liked, it’s secure to say Valve might be wanting into it and speaking with the creators to make it into one thing higher and extra organized. Well, a minimum of that’s what I’m hoping!
