Dota’s Auto Chess mod is largely regarded as the origin of the auto-battlefielder subculture. The combination of strategy and chess components with Dota’s lore and characters was a major factor in its success.

Dota’s auto chess mod features all of the game’s heroes, just like the original. As a result, each hero has a unique set of abilities that players can put to use in a variety of different scenarios. However, they are not all made equal. Some are more valuable than others, while others flourish under specific circumstances.

There are a few things to keep in mind when looking at this list, which ranks each character from greatest to worst. This will aid you in deciding which heroes to invest your gold in at various phases of a match.

Now that we’ve cleared that out, let’s go to the list of tiers.


In your rotation, these are the best characters. There is no problem finding a purpose for them in any situation because of their versatility.

Because of his natural synergy and his crowd management ability, Sven makes an excellent damage dealer.

Lone Druid’s Druid synergy makes him a cheap and quick upgrade. This hero’s strength and adaptability make him an asset in every match.


Heroes capable of defeating S-tier opponents with the right setup.

Use him early so he can start planting mines right away. Unchecked Techies are a recipe for disaster for the opposing player throughout the course of the conflict.

As a result, he is an essential element of any squad employing that technique.

The strongest opponents will waste their time and energy trying to hit her if she is placed at the front of the line

Late-game, he’ll need both Druid and Elf synergies ready to counter the opponent’s heavy damage output. This is the only way to maximize his potential.

In order to get the most out of him, you need to maximize the synergy between the Orcs.

By focusing on her Hunter or Undead synergies, you can counterbalance these weaknesses.


Heroes with a specific purpose. They don’t have much else going for them, but they’re good at what they’re supposed to be good at.

Because to his Troll synergy, he possesses the best single-target damage potential. If you are an inexperienced player, you will be able to defeat him with ease because he is only a one-dimensional hero.

Windranger’s Powershot is good, but it falls short due to its lack of AoE coverage.

A front-line role is best for her because she can clear the enemy’s vanguard with her special ability.


Consistently viable heroes that aren’t sought for for high-level strategies.


Heroes that have practically vanished from the game’s competitive landscape. Use them if you have a very particular strategy you want to test, otherwise leave them alone.


High-level play is impossible with these characters.

Why is it called Auto Chess?

Squishy ranged champions should not be placed in the front line. Units will fight each other automatically when it’s time for war, which is why the term “auto battler” was coined.

How good is Auto Chess?

To get into the Auto Battler genre, Auto Chess is an excellent place to start. As long as you have nothing to lose, you can give it a go. As much fun as it is to look at the brightly colored cartoon graphics and use the game’s main gameplay principles, the actual battles are disappointing.

What is Auto Chess based on?

Dota 2’s auto-battler was inspired by a massively successful mod, but the mod’s original developers spun it off into its own project in 2019. Auto Chess appears to be coming full circle at this point. As of today, Drodo Studio and publisher Dragonest have announced that they are collaborating on a brand-new game.
