Chess Rush Guide
Auto Chess games are quite simple if you understand to basics of the game. The difficult part is to learn about all the heroes and their class/ roles. If similar class heroes are put together on the board, you will get unique perk associated with the class. You can check about each hero and their class by tapping on the book icon at the bottom left corner of the game screen.
When you start the game, you will be matched with the other 7 players. You need to buy heroes with the gold provided to you each round. You can also re-roll the heroes by spending 2 gold. If you keep on winning all the round, you will get some extra coins. The maximum coins you will get will be 14, 5(base coins)+ 3(win streak)+ 5(Intrest) only if you have saving gold above 50 + 1(on winning). You get 10% interest in each round based on your saved coins. So we suggest you save as many coins as you can during the early game so that in later stages you can easily upgrade and re-roll heroes.
Defeating monsters will grant you some unique items that can be equipped on your heroes to give them extra stats bonus. You can tap on the treasure box and then select the item to check for heroes who are eligible to equip it. If no hero is suitable to equip that item, you can manually select a hero and then tap on the tresaure box and select equip the item.
If you are not sure about the heroes class or formation, you can try the recommend lineup and formation. To use this feature tap on your banner at the bottom right corner of the game screen and select recommend lineup at the left side of the game screen. There you can select various lineup and formation that suits your gameplay style.
Chess Rush Strategy & Tier List
We are not providing a tier list for the heroes, as in auto chess games tier list of heroes doesn’t matter that much. You need to focus on heroes class and form an undefeatable synergy. We are going to give some insight upon all the classes to form better synergy and dominate your enemies. Always aim to upgrade a hero to 3 stars as early as possible. Select a hero to upgrade to 3 stars that cost only 1 coin. A hero will be available in the shop for only a certain number. Once the maximum limit reaches for a hero, you won’t be able to buy more. For example, let assume a 1 coin hero can only have a limit of 45, so all 8 players can only buy that hero till the limit is reached. To upgrade a hero to level 3, you need to have 9 similar heroes, so only 5 players can upgrade that hero to level 3. So keep an eye on other boards, and buy those heroes, that other players are not buying to quickly upgrade it to level 3.
A 2-star hero will always be better than 1-star hero and similarly, 3-star will be better than 2 stars. Below I am providing some the combo of classes that you form during gameplay. Make sure to always have 1-2 tanks at the front, no matter whichever class you are playing. Always keep hunter or DPS heroes at the back and tanks at the front. If your opponent has a lot of assassins, you need to place a tank at the bottom of the board, as assassins jump to your backline to kill your mage and DPS heroes quickly
Human + Sorcerer
Hunter + Demon + Punisher
Elf + Dragon + Rider
Cyborg + Engineer
Hunter + Undead
Furry + Assassin
You should play warlock if you all your allies need to have lifesteal, extra lifesteal will turn into a shield that absorbs damage. If you are getting a lot of druid at the starting of the game, you can use them as tanks because of druid unique perk. If your team comprises of heavy physical damage heroes but don’t have much attack speed, try the goblin class with only 4 heroes, all your allies with gain a huge attack speed.
Note: Jelly is the most OP hero in this game that can turn into any hero. After turning into any hero, jelly copies the characteristics including the class and can be used to upgrade. If you have two identical heroes, drag jelly upon them in order to upgrade them. Demons should always be played with punisher.
