Every Dota 2 player has heard of (or even played) Dota 2 Auto Chess by now. It is the most popular arcade game ever with over 7 million players worldwide. That’s why it was no surprise that the developers wanted to get the game to mobile. After all, everyone has a smartphone nowadays.
The first rumors regarding Auto Chess Mobile began around a month ago. However, there was not a fixed date for the release. Luckily, today is the day that you can start playing, according to this Reddit post. The interesting part is that the mobile version of the game is being developed without Valve’s participation. There were some rumors that eventually Gaben’s company will step-in but there is still no confirmation about that.
What does that mean for us, the players? Some items and/or heroes could have different names than initially thought. Similar to the way that some Dota 2 heroes have different names compared to the original DotA.
How to play?
Step 1. The first thing that you need to do is to have an Android device. At the moment, this is the only platform that allows you to play Mobile Auto Chess.
Step 2. Click HERE and then click the “Android-Download” button. Once you do that, you have to set up the apk and enter the game. A login box should appear where you should enter your e-mail and password, which are the same as on the website.
As if for now, the game is only in Chinese.
Here is a list of all the items and units that will are available right now in the mobile version. If the Auto Chess scene continues to grow rapidly, we might soon see a new esports on the scene. There are many tournaments that are being held but the prize pools are still fairly low compared to the other games. Let’s not forget that Dota was just a custom game in Warcraft 3 before it became the sensation that it is today.
