Dota Auto Chess: Rank system and distribution - February 2019

The rank system in Dota Auto Chess is composed of six main ranks: the MMR range goes from 0 to 3,400. The first 4 ranks are split into 9 sub-ranks.

Data and API

The developers have not shared yet precise info on the rank distribution in Dota Auto Chess, but through an API it is possible to find out all the rank names and the MMR range required for each one.

The following data has been displayed on a few public forums. I have not used the API personally, and I suggest to not utilize it: even if it is accessible by anyone who knows the IP, it is still something hosted on a remote server that belongs to the devs. I believe they might obscure or protect it in the coming days or weeks.

In the update released on February 2nd, they explained that they are trying to “prevent different kinds of hackers from attacking”, so openly explaining how to access their API and servers would be detrimental to their efforts.

Hopefully, in the future they will provide us players with a legitimate public API to gather info on the matchmaking.

I will update this article in the following months if we will have more news on anything related to the Auto Chess rank distribution.

The table is responsive. If you are using a phone, you may have to turn it sideways for a full view. Otherwise, zoom in or click the grey area to swipe it.

The rank system

In Auto Chess there are six main ranks: Pawn, Knight, Bishop, Rook, King, and Queen. We do not have exact info on the player base distribution, but from personal experience I believe most of the players are placed at Knight and probably in the lower area of Bishop.

In order to achieve a better rank it is necessary to fight at least equally strong players, but the automatic matchmaking is very limited, so you will find mostly Knights in your games. For this reason, many Bishops tend to organize private lobbies.

  • The first 4 ranks are divided into 9 sub-ranks, and each one is indicated in the API with a certain level, for a total of 38.

  • The MMR section in the table shows the MMR range needed to acquire a specific rank.

  • I don’t know if there are already King and Queen players in the game, but 3,400 is the maximum numerical score attainable at the moment.

How to check your MMR

The previously mentioned API also provides info on your personal account. Using your steam ID number you can check several data such as the number of candies and matches played, the ID of your last match and the server where it took place, your level, and the MMR score.
