Drodo isn’t wasting any time capitalizing on its creation. Dota Auto Chess is massively popular, but it’s also a free-to-play mod for Dota 2. So another studio could capture away some of that momentum by releasing a standalone imitation on other platforms. That has happened before with MOBAs. Dota 2 is the unofficial followup to the Warcraft 3 mod Defense of the Ancients. That is the mod that created the multiplayer online battle arena genre. But Riot Games was able to capitalize on that idea better than others by releasing the standalone League of Legends.
Serenity's Destiny will be hosted by Richard Lewis, and besides Dota 2 matches, on the second day of the event, the eliminated challengers will square off in an exciting Dota 2 Auto Chess tournament, says WSOE in their press release. Details on the Dota 2 Auto Chess tournament are yet to be revealed, as well as the full list of casters. First of all, forget about the chess thing the only real point of comparison is they they both have pieces and boards. You build a team of heroes, whack them on the board, then leave them to get on with the actual whacking by themselves. They all have abilities and synergies, with the aim being to build a balanced team a la Dota 2 itself. Unlike Dota 2 itself, those heroes level up by fusing into bigger and better units.

There's very little chess involved in the game in fact, you don't have to know anything about chess to play. Hell, you don't even have to know anything about Dota. It's a game about handling probability, managing your economy, and keeping an eye on your opponents, because you're all pulling pieces from the same pool. There's a lot going on in this mode, and it can be a bit disorienting when you first fire it up. But since its launch on January 4th, it's quickly become one of the most popular modes in Dota 2's Arcade. Unfortunately, there's not much in the way of documentation out there for it yet, and we felt we could help fill the gap. So here's everything you need to know to start playing Dota Auto Chess.
The game blew up soon as it was released, and the community went rogue. In the beginning, there was a lot of hype and a lot of complaints about how Auto Chess was destroying the DOTA 2 matchmaking. The hate-train died, but the game survived - and eventually became the most subscribed and played Custom Game. The growth of the game and the player base has been super fast, and I don't see it slowing down in the next few weeks or months. The 6 million subscriber record came within a month of reaching 4 million subscribers. The mod is gaining almost 42,000 subscribers every day and at this speed, it will soon reach 7M.
Players who want to try the game can sign-up for an account on the Auto Chess website. The game will be available on both iOS and Android, so everyone with a phone can try out this popular fad. The website is entirely in Chinese, but it asks for your name, email address, password and to complete a Captcha code. Once you have your account created, you will receive an email when the mobile version is ready to go live. Players will be able to earn candy rewards, which can unlock cosmetics in the game, by linking their Steam account. You can purchase the candies as well, with 10 candies costing 1 RMB.
