Auto Chess, the blockbuster breakout Arcade mode from Dota 2, gets its first high-profile tournament tomorrow in the form of the Twitch Rivals Auto Chess Showdown.
The online competition will see 32 hand-picked streamers competing for a total of $12,500 prize money, split equally between the European and North American regions.
Each region will be further separated into two eight-player game lobbies, with players receiving prize money according to their finishing rank at the end of the event.
Here's a quick breakdown of the prize money:
- 1st Place: $400
- 2nd Place: $300
- 3rd Place: $200
- 4th Place: $150
- 5th-6th Place: $125
- 7th-8th Place: $100
On the European side, play takes place between 6:00pm and 10:00pm CET (5:00pm-9:00pm GMT). The American leg takes place from 1:00pm PT and will wrap up at around 5:00pm.
Participants have yet to be confirmed, but you'll be able to watch the matches on individual competitor streams, as well as on the official Twitch Rivals channel which we've embedded for you here:
