How I can launch DOTA Auto Chess?
Dota Auto Chess is a mod to DOTA 2 that can be played for free. Simply download DOTA 2 from Steam, then go to the "Game Room" tab, select the game from the list and install it. When the process is over, click on "Play DOTA Auto Chess" to start playing. The game will automatically select your opponents.
What is DOTA Auto Chess? What is the main premise of the game?
DOTA Auto Chess could be called a "tower defense battle royale" (with elements of poker). It consists in building an army of heroes, which will defend itself against the waves of enemies. However, we do not play alone. Up to eight players take part in one game, each with their own part of the map to defend. The winner is the one who survives the longest and stays alone on the map.
During the game each player controls their own courier. They allow you to display heroes or collect items and have health and experience levels. To perform a heroic action, select courier, move the cursor over the cone and select one of the skills:
Q - sending the hero to fight. After using this ability, click on the place where you want to place the unit.
W - taking the hero back to the homestead.
E - selling the hero.
D - re-drawing the pool of heroes to buy - cost of 3 gold
F - adding experience points
The action of setting up pawns can only be carried out in the intervals between rounds. We don't have much time then, so it's very important to use keyboard shortcuts efficiently. In addition to those responsible for the actions of the courier, it will be useful to use the space (turn the hero shop on/off), TAB (switching between the boards of players) and F1 (choosing your own courier).
Note: Shortcuts responsible for actions of the courier work only if the courier is selected and close to the unit where you are performing the action. For this reason, always try to keep the courier roughly in the middle of the line.
