Dota 2 Auto Chess Tournament to be Hosted by BSJ
The phenomenon called Dota 2 Auto Chess is a custom game in Dota 2 that hooked thousands of people. With over 1.3 million subscribers it has become a game of its own, literally. If you find this familiar, you are right. Dota 2 itself was a custom map in Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne (named DotA) before it became one of the leading esports in the world with tournaments that go up to 20+ million dollars in prize pools. If the hype continues, we might as well see a new Valve game, despite releasing Artifact just a couple of months ago.
Having all that attention was surely not going to remain unnoticed. A popular streamer called BSJ decided to host a tournament for his subscribers with a $500 prize pool. What’s more, Valve decided to “boost” the prize a little bit (ten times to be exact) and now we have a tournament with a $ 5k prize pool.
The event will begin today, just a day before the first Major of the year – The Chongqing Major.
What is Dota 2 Auto Chess?
To put simply – the objective of the game is to beat your six opponents. Each round you have to purchase a hero from a random stack of many other heroes (you basically choose one out of five for example).
Every hero has its own type, which is essential for the type of army you want to build. For example, the Mages can add negative magic resistance to enemies, while orcs provide bonus HP.
As soon as you gather three units which have the same type, they become a level 2 unit. The maximum level is 3, and to achieve it, you need to have three level 2 units.
In order to win you have to win the fight. What’s interesting is that the fight is automatic, which means that you have no control whatsoever over your units. You just sit back and enjoy the ride. Every round your army goes head to head with the army of the other seven players in the game. The player who survives the longest is the winner.
