We’ve curated the three most downloaded on the platform, but taking into account its update frequency and overall player activity. Check them out below.
It’s important to remember that before the auto chess genre really took off, it was a custom Dota 2 mode that was made popular on the Steam platform. This particular iteration, created and maintained by user ss.waiting and other developers, was created in 2019 and was last updated on November 4. It boasts more than 3 million unique users and almost 10 million subscribers, and is a good auto chess title if you want to use Dota 2 characters exclusively.
A classic mainstay of Dota ever since its conception as a Warcraft 3 mod, Dota IMBA allows you to play the game with overpowered characters. The only downside is that everyone is also overpowered, making for incredibly flashy and seizure-inducing games in which nobody knows how they actually win. Created by Firetoad and other developers in 2015 and last updated on November 27, Dota IMBA has 2.3 million unique visitors and 5.8 million subscribers.
Another mainstay of the Warcraft 3 modding scene back in the day, Custom Hero Chaos is well and alive in Dota 2. This mode allows you to build your hero abilities from a pool and survive against other players, all the while allowing you to bet on matches in order to win gold to purchase more skills. Created and maintained by Noob Humiliator, It’s highly addictive and a good alternative to Auto Chess, boasting 150k unique visitors and 3 million subscribers. It was created in 2020 and was last updated on November 24.
