Over the few months, we found ourselves addicted to an arcade game called Dota Auto Chess. A strategy game made by Chinese Developer, Drodo Studio, that pits nine players against each other by mixing and matching the available heroes.
Because its easy to learn and fun to play, we found ourselves spending hours of playing it and guess what, the Valve developers were with us on the hype.
In a blog post released by Dota 2 today, (http://blog.dota2.com/2019/05/dota-auto-chess/) they announced that over the past six months, they were playing it and shared that this was also how Dota 2 originated- from countless hours of playing the original Warcraft Dota mode. In a flash of inspiration, Valve took the effort of flying DAC creators from China to discuss matters.
Valve wanted to collaborate in making an official DAC, but both agreed that its better if they build separate versions. However, the DAC creator gave their full blessing to Valve in creating their own version of this popular arcade game, similarly, Valve also expressed their support to Drodo, saying “... And support each other to the fullest”
On the other hand, Drodo is still working on the beta version of a non-dota auto chess mobile game, with Valve extending their efforts to help players migrate their accounts to this new platform.
After their meeting, Drodo thanked and praised Valve for creating an open community such as the Workshop that allowed players like them to show their creative talents. They also acknowledged Valve’s support to their mobile game and that Valve’s stand-alone game will also be a hit. Lastly, they assured everyone that our favorite DAC will be improved, and thanked the fans for their continued support.
“We look forward to growing together!” Drodo imparted in their finishing statements.
Will this official Valve Auto Chess be their new Artifact?
What do you think will they do?
Stay tuned for more updates on Valve’s official Auto Chess in the coming months.
