The Autochess game is an 8-player PvP game mode in DotA 2, based on an 8 by 8 board,where the individual chess pieces are DotA 2 heroes.
Each round, each player gets a random set of heroes (usual 5 optional heros) from a limited pool , buy and places them to palyer`s own board (4 by 8).
Fight the unusual creeps in the first three rounds and then play against other players (every 5 rounds against unusual creeps again).Winning the victory of against creeps will get the equipment reward.Equipment can enhance the ability of the Chess.
If a player loses the battle, he loses 1 health from each enemy hero left on the board (or 2 or 3 if the enemy hero is strong). When only one player is still standing, the game is over and the player is win.
