Hello everyone, and welcome to my Auto Chess guide, there will be other parts as there’s a lot of thing to say First of all, the game is free and available on Steam, you only need DotA The game is played on a board and you are facing against 7 other players Everyone starts at 100hp and if you fall to zero, you lose You lose hp by losing a fight against another player or monsters The UI is presented this way, there, there’s the round’s number A timing for the preparation and fight The slots available for heros Gold, life, rank.. names of all players On the bottom, all the active abilites You can move a hero Put it back in your stash Sell it back for all the money Reroll the shop or gain exp Your heros are fighting all alone, you don’t need to touch anything Here, your level Yours and not the heros’ one Your level is used for two things The level is equal to how many units you can put on board if you’re level 2, you can put 2 heros if you’re 4 you can put 4 heros and so on Furthermore, the highest your level is, the highest the probability of having higher cost unit raises At the start of everyround, the shop opens and gives you multiple heros to buy The cost of hero When you buy a hero, it puts him directly to the stash So if you want him to fight, you need to move him on the board Be careful about how much heros you can put on board Because if you put more than allowed, a random hero will go back to the stash at the begining of the round, and if your stash is full, it gonna get destroyed Now, how do I chose a hero ? Every hero got a race and a class And even with that, a hero can be better than another one because of their own ultimate There’s no magic, you will need to practice and do games to know everything Get back to the races and classes Depends on that, your heros will benefit from a bonus On the left, you got the bonuses you gain from races And on the right, bonuses from classes Remember, to benefit from bonuses, you need different heros Take an exemple To activate the orc’s bonus, you will need two orcs If you have 2 axes, it won’t work But if you have axe and beastmaster, you will get it Same for classes Assassin for example You will need 3 differents heros two morphlings and one bounty hunter don’t work bounty hunter, morphling and phantom assassin do and so on I won’t go in details with classes and races as it will take too much time All that to say that to build a strong army You just don’t need to take all the costy heros but think about synergies Every hero can go up to tier3 At the begining, every hero is t1 To get a t2, you need to get 3 same t1 to get a t3, you need to get 3 same t2 To combine them it’s simple You just need to place them on board, no need to be side by side Why should you up in tier Simply because they are stronger You can check by yourself Between t1, t2, t3 at every tier, the hero do more damage and tank more Then you’re gonna tell me, we just have to get only t2 and we’re fine Nah, you need to be careful on synergies and individual hero For example, 3 t1 who got bonus will be most likely stronger than 2 t1 and one t2 without bonuses Ok so I just only need to get good units and it’s all good And again, no, in the game, there’s also something called economy Getting a good economy will always provide you better heros Because you can afford to reroll and gain exp and up levels And so, get better heros and more heros on the board There’s multiple way to win gold First is basic, you get an income of 5 golds every round Win a round, one gold Streak win, you can get to a max of 3 golds even if you have 90 000 000 wins But getting a losing streak also gives you to a maximum of 3 golds But..there’s also interest At the end of every round, for every ten, you got 1 gold If you have 15 golds, you will get 1 gold If you have 27 you got 27.. err 2 golds If you have 41 golds, you get 4 And if you have 63 golds you get.. ??? Mmmh nope. not 6 but 5 The interest’s cap is 5 You get it, sometimes it’s better to lose some hps and get a better economy Sometimes you just need to put your ego on the side ! Obviously, the ideal scenario is to win everything and having at the same time a good economy But you will see quickly that it won’t happen this way If you save for economy and someone else decided to go for exp and have one more unit or to get better heros with reroll, you will most likely lose Ok good, still didn’t lose you ? Heros..economy.. it’s already a lot nah ? Yeah well, I still didn’t finish There’s also items. First 1, two and third round, will always be PvE Monsters have a chance to drop items With items, you make your heros stronger To pick it, you just need to right click on them And you will just need to drag it on the dedicated heros From round 10 Every 5 rounds will be PvE All the rest are PvP so you will need to equip some items to somes heros But, if you equip an item to a hero, you can’t get it back, except if you’re gonna sell it And.. items can conbine with itselves On the right, items that come from monsters On the left, items’ combinations Again, I won’t get into details, it’s gonna be in another video Economy..heros..items, it’s already a lot Well, again one more thing and I think we are good for the basics Positioning of heros Tanks in the front, ranged on backline.. well, naah it’s more complicated Every hero begins with 0 mana At 100, the hero will cast his ultimate Question is, how to gain mana There’s 3 ways, first one is to put damage with auto attack Second, is to take damage The last one is a bit special but a hero called Crystal Maiden can give it to all your group Does it mean we need to put all mages in the front ? Well no, the mages don’t tank as much as they have lower hp But.. if I put them on the back, they don’t gain enough mana.. So yep, you need to evaluate the situation regarding your heros, synergies and items in order to have the optimal positionning At the end of the video, I will put a gameplay commentary to show you how it’s played and I’m gonna explain every move So if you’re interested, you can have a look So it’s a game showing that even if you’re getting dominated whole early game I’m gonna spoil it a bit but I was last and was getting snowballed, I did lost like 7 rounds in a row Only 15 hp left.. but I still managed to do a top2 with a lot of ease and serenity just showing that the games can be complex and that you can’t lose hope even if you’re getting snowballed as economy is the most important That’s all for me, I hope you guys enjoyed the guide If it’s the case, don’t forget to like the video as it’s gonna help the other people If you have any answer or critism, don’t hesitate to reach me in commentary I will surely comeback with other guides So.. yeahh, bye bye !
