Take even a quick look at the Twitch feed for Dota 2 right now and you'll soon spot that a large number of streamers are fixated by the Auto Chess mode that's been released for the Arcade section of the game.

One thing that's still taking a little fleshing out though is how the ranking system actually works in Auto Chess.

In this article, we've pulled together as much information as we've been able to uncover about what's involved. We've got a breakdown of the ranks themselves for you, followed by further insight we've been able to find.

Take a look at our core Auto Chess guide if you'd like more help getting started with the game.

Essential Auto Chess Coverage

First up, here are the ranks themselves. The Pawn is the starting rank for each player, while Queen denotes those at the very top of the game:

  • 1. Queen
  • 2. King
  • 3. Castle
  • 4. Bishop
  • 5. Knight
  • 6. Pawn

As for what we know about the ranking process, here's a quick overview.

Note that a lot of this is based on anecdotal experience in the community. The developers have not explicitly explained the mechanics behind Auto Chess's ranking system.

  • Within each of the above categories are sub-ranks that are numbered 1-10. Once you hit the highest sub-rank, you'll move up a main rank. For example, once you've hit the highest sub-rank in Pawn, you'll be promoted to the lowest rank of Knight.
  • Players have reported having to win a large number of games in a row to make meaningful progression through sub-ranks. At Bishop level, it can take a dozen or more consecutive wins to increase by just a few sub-ranks.
  • Leaving matches early doesn't necessarily effect your ranking either, although the rank gain or loss won't be calculated until the match itself has concluded. Obviously your ranking potential is affected by non-participation while the other players are still carrying on!

As soon as we learn more about ranks in Auto Chess we'll update this article. If there's anything you think we've missed though, let us know in the comments!
