Dota Auto Chess arised to one of the best and most popular fun maps in Dota 2 history: In just a few months it got more than 700.000 users playing it, this number shocked the whole Dota 2 community as well as Valve itself. This map was a wonder and created the biggest hype for a funmap in the whole Dota 2 time and that after years. It’s not one of the old or first maps, it’s a new one and it broke all records! 😉
What is Dota Auto Chess?
It is a fun map inside Dota 2 and in Dota Auto Chess you can select specific hero compositions that fight against the enemy in round-based fights. The concept of Dota Auto Chess is quite different from other arcade games. Auto Chess is a strategic and tactical board game, and killing skills are not enough to stand in this map. To Nail the Auto Chess map, it is necessary to have a vital brain – the use of the mind is more important than aggressive skills.
Dota Auto Chess Gameplay:
The gameplay of Dota Auto Chess is a bit similar to real chess. It has an 8×8 chessboard, and players have to pick heroes one by one according to the gold. Later on you can upgrade those heroes to make them stable and deploy them correctly on the chessboard. Your heroes have to fight against other enemy teams because there is a total of 8 teams in one match. You will compete in a series of one-on-one matches. The longer you survive, the harder it gets.
Valve jumped onto the hype and created Dota Underlords:
The above features are the main reason that made Dota Auto Chess to the best Arcade game of 2019. The best of Auto Chess is, it is free to play. Moreover, on 14, June 2019 Valve released a new standalone Steam game similar to Auto Chess called as Dota Underlords. Auto Chess lovers are swapping Auto Chess with UnderLord because both of them have the same gameplay concept but Dota Underlords has even more depth and balancing updates.
2. Dota 2 Overthrow 2.0 Funmap (Quick Deathmatch Rounds)
|Game Mode||Survive and Win|
Before Dota Auto Chess came, Overthrow was the leader of the Dota 2 fun maps. In Normal and Ranked match-making, you have to spend an average of 30-40 minutes. However, Overthrow is entirely different from it: You do not have to worry about the farm – you do not have to make strategies.
Dota Overthrow Gameplay:
The object of Overthrow is to vanish the enemies and be the team with the most kills or goal number of kills in a specific time. You get respawned instantly, get more gold, and the map is super-small. Sometimes the match is getting so aggressive and chaotic that it’s hard to see which players are your allies and which one are enemies! 😉
Tips and Tricks to win Dota 2 Overthrow:
- Stay near to the Midas Throne that is in the middle of the map: If you stand inside the circle it will give your hero extra gold as well as experience over time.
- Beware of your enemies in the start, dodge fights and once you got a bit stronger target the weakest heroes on the map that you can instantly eliminate.
- Pick heroes that have high kill potential, carries, strong tanks or supports with high burst damage and low cooldowns are the best heroes for Overthrow.
- After every few seconds, a giant gold coin will pop up near the throne, pick up as much as you can to get heavy and expensive items.
- But what is even more effective to win are the extra items that come every few minutes: The courier is starting in the middle and is bringing the supply package to the pinged area on the map. Catch your ally and move to it every single time, if you are going together and can create dominance, it will work out often. At the time of the dropoff, everyone that is near will get blasted back, that means blinking heroes and daggers are required to get the items.
- Victory is completely based on the number of kills. It is necessary to pick high damage dealing heroes instead of vulnerable heroes.
Overthrow is really fun to play and a no-brainer, if you don’t have enough time for a real Dota 2 match jump into an Overthrow arena and practice carrying and your reflexes.

Dota Imba Gameplay & Spell Spamming:
In Dota IMBA, most of the heroes do not have any ability cooldowns and mana cost. It is not applied to every hero because some heroes would not even let you come out of the base, such as Invoker, Zeus, Gyrocopter, etc.
The gold per minute and XP is different from regular matches, and it makes the map more interesting. The map is a little bit darker and foggy than usual because if there is too much sight, then the game will go out of hands. Sometimes this fun map turns into irritating maps because of we players, and they start spamming one spell again and again. It has no fun in it.
To win, you have to destroy enemy teams shrine but do not rush for it. First of all, have some fun in killing enemy heroes. Later on, focus on the Ancient.

The most epic Battle Royale map is Dota 10v10. It is the same as the normal matchmaking, but the number of players is twice as before. Each team has 10 players instead of 5. No other alterations are made, the same map like before, no ability improvements, same mana cost, and mana cooldown. However, yeah! Few things are different more bloodshed, more aggressive play, and most great animations.
Dota 10v10 is inspired by the All-star match at The International 2015. It was the most epic and fantastic match because most of the players were from the audience, and where Dendi was wearing a pudge costume. It was an epic game the game wholly twisted in the last few minutes (it is recommended to watch that match). That match inspired the Valve, and here we are now we can also play Dota 2 10v10.
Note: The team that will destroy the enemy teams ancient, will be victorious.
