According to Drodo, all heroes will be free at game launch and players will not have to pay for runes. It is in the interest of fairness; Drodo believes that individual players with different hero pools is unfair, and therefore giving all players all heroes for free makes the game fair. These heroes will, of course, be adapted from chess characters in Auto Chess.
Auto Chess itself began life as a mod in Valve’s Dota 2, which became so popular that it was made into its own game. Valve then created its own version of Auto Chess called Dota Underlords, with the makers of League of Legends Riot Games following suit with Teamfight Tactics.Here is a plus in-depth breakdown of the ‘Auto Battler’ genre, to update you. Essentially, Drodo’s MOBA spin-off has become so popular that the studio is now creating its own MOBA, using the characters popularized in Drodo’s Auto Chess spin-off as playable heroes.
