I was talking games to my 21 year old son yesterday. He asked: So, have you tried DOTA 2 Auto chess yet?
I hadn’t. He proceeded to explain this community mod currently has over 130,000 concurrent players (Artifact weeps with envy) and has taken over his gaming life.
I had seen videos pop-up all over my streams, but hadn’t paid attention to a DOTA 2 game mod.
Trump to the rescue to explain the game (though anyone who follows one of the Hearthstone streamers probably can also check out one of their videos. This game is popping up everywhere):
I havn’t looked into it much deeper than that video. But it seems like a fun multiplayer battle mode where you buy units between matches, equip them and upgrade them to higher ranks by combining identical units. The battles then play automatically. Can you build the right synergies between your units to win it all?
I think this is now on my play list for this week.
