Forum > Mars and Zeus are coming to Dota Auto Chess Soon

Drodostudio, the developer of the Auto Chess mod for Dota 2, is teasing two new hero units coming to the game. Auto Chess is a popular mod for Dota 2. It has almost nothing to do with Dota, aside from using its art assets. Instead, it’s more like a board game. Players select pieces themed after Dota 2 heroes and place them on the chess board. The pieces do all the work — using their abilities on their own, moving around the board — to fight against enemy player’s armies. Players win if they put together the best army and outlive the rest of the game. The studio posted two teaser pictures to Twitter with the caption “new heroes coming soon.” There are currently 58 Chesses in Auto Chess.

Adding those two heroes might also mean that there will be a new race in the game called God. However, this is just my personal opinion as there has been no confirmation about that yet. One thing is for sure – Dota 2 Auto Chess has taken the world and it is becoming more popular every single day.

Players can now purchase Mirana (3-cost Elf Hunter), Death Prophet (5-cost Undead Warlock) and Riki (3-cost Satyr Assassin) in-game. Riki’s arguably the most exciting addition, as they’re the first of a new race, the Satyr. This means a brand new race synergy has been introduced to Auto Chess. The Satyrs prevent enemy players from seeing what you’ve got on the board, which is perfect for masking your activities and keeping your opponents on their toes.

But it didn’t take long for the developers to provide more detail. Zeus and Mars both popped up in the latest test server patch notes, which confirm that they’re part of the new ‘god’ race. The buff appears to be a substantial cooldown reduction for friendly units, which stacks pretty substantially – it’s so crazy, in fact, that there’s some debate on whether or not it’s working as intended.

Judging by the comments in the twitter thread itself, many players have a strong hunch as to who these heroes might be. One is likely to be the spellcaster Zeus, while the other could be warrior hero Mars. This theory makes sense, as there could be a “God” synergy in the works for players who manage to field both heroes on the board. It’s difficult to say how they would function in Auto Chess, as Drodo tweaks Dota 2 hero stats and abilities to fit their custom mode.

There are no details on how these characters will operate in Auto Chess, nor is there a set release date for their addition. Players in the Twitter thread discussed an interesting possibility of a new race of pieces, as Mars and Zeus don’t really fit into the current races. For classes, Zeus will likely be a Mage, with Mars playing either Warrior or Knight. Finally, to enjoy all the features in the game, players can Buy Dota Auto Chess Candy Codes from Mmocs at a reasonable price.
