Dota Underlords is a new stand-alone game that pits you against seven opponents in a battle of wits that will have you building, combining, and leveling-up a crew in a battle of dominance for the city of White Spire. In this game, victory is determined not by twitch reflexes, but by superior tactics.




So if anyone wants to play Teamfight Tactics (Riot's Auto Chess) you need
- LoL (Rito account)
- additional sign up to Public Beta Environment (PBE)
- no bans
- honor level 3+ (New account start at 2)
- account verified required (I'm sure they are getting hammered for requests)
https://pbesignup.na.leagueoflegends.com/en_US/pbe

https://dotesports.com/news/how-to-get-a-pbe-account-for-league-of-legends
- 12 GB extra d/l (on top of LoL 12-15 GB)
- PBE is Chicago server only
- smaller capacity (wtf sometimes take an hour to log in, I assume it's going to get hammered June 18-25)

Said to be launching on PBE with 9.13 on June 18 (time ?)

Full access for everyone June 25 (time ?)

Yeah let's see how this turns out. It already has the better character design than whatever the hell Drodo's is.
I'm really curious how Leagues turns out, too.

The race to clone this game has been insane. Feels bad for the og devs, they didn't get much time to profit from their creation.

Definitely going to play. I have the battle pass. I loved the mod.

Looking forward to mobile version too, it makes a really good mobile game. I've been playing the Chinese Studio Drodo version and it's pretty good, albeit with bad character designs

I have a feeling that this announcement was meant to be at TI but having both League and EGS announcing their own versions forced their hand.

Seems like E3 competitor announcements pushed their hand
definitely. 2 weeks before League of Legends autochess is released and before Drodo's autochess on EGS.

also from reddit, Valve employee DanielJ about the closed beta.
Yes, but be aware that after approximately a week of stress testing we’ll transition to Open Beta where a Battle Pass will not be required.

Awesome! I've just claimed it off Dota 2 and will be giving it a try soon. Really looking forward to this. Cheers Volvo.

Yeah, that absolutely does kick the legs out of the AutoChess EGS announcement. Mobile version next week, too. Bravo, Valve.

What I really like though is the fact you always get an item after a creep round and get too choose. There's still rng involved but it's not as crazy dumb like the og game where sometimes you just get screwed by people getting mjollnirs or assault currias while you can't combine a single item.

Kripp doesn't even get that his two demon hunters cancel the demon clause. Lol.
IIRC in the mod version you could have 2 of the same Demon as long as it was the same Rank it wouldn't cancel the buff. It was only when they were differnt ranks or different demons then it would cancel.

I haven't bought the battle pass this year but I'm looking forward to the open beta. I tried Drodos mobile version but it loses something for me without Dota characters.

Valve releasing two games in year? We can't get third any time soon. RIP that VR game.

Oh sure. But he has both demon hunters, meaning he can have as many demons as he likes, and he ignores all of them. He could've had multiple 2 stars by now lol.

I’ll play whichever is best on mobile. Currently having a lot of fun with the original version on mobile.

I'm curious what this is running on. The fact that there's an iOS and Android version right off the bat makes me doubt that it's Source.
