Around half a year ago, developer Moonton released Magic Chess as their independent Mobile Legends Auto Chess version. In order to play the game, you had to download the Magic Chess: Bang Bang App – at least until now. But now, Moonton is going to release Magic Chess within Mobile Legends.
Magic Chess? Autochess? What’s that?
For those who aren’t familiar with the game mode, Magic Chess is a strategy based game following Autochess’ footsteps. As its name tells, the game features chess-like elements such as a square chessboard as well as different chess pieces that consist of characters playable in the actual game (for Autochess, that’s DotA Heroes; for Teamfight Tactics, it’s League of Legends Champions). However, once a new round starts your units will automatedly fight for you – that’s why it’s called Autochess.
While you always play against 7 other players, each round you’ll only face one of them per round; some rounds, you’ll only face creeps or monsters. Over the course of the game, you’ll gain gold and items in order to build a strong lineup and bring the health points of your opponents to zero.
Magic Chess: Bang Bang
Those who already enjoyed Chess-TD will not have any issues transitioning to Magic Chess. In fact, many elements share similarities such as economy, synergy systems, unit levels.

Currently, there is a total of 52 different Heroes available for Magic Chess that form up to 22 unique synergies. On the Mobile Legends event’s page, Moonton provides a detailed introduction with informative graphics. So even if you haven’t played Autochess games nor Chess-TD before, their tutorial leaves no questions unanswered.
Considering that they revealed information about Magic Chess on the ML live server step by step, we’ll probably get to play it on the Mobile Legends App really soon. The new Hero Carmilla is supposedly coming on January 17th, so maybe they’ll pair it up with the new patch.
However, in the official Magic Chess: Bang Bang App, they set an announcement stating the App would close due to the official release in Mobile Legends on January 24th. So chances are we might have to wait for another 2 weeks. Then again, Chess-TD isn’t the worst as a pastime either.
So, what are your thoughts on the official release of Magic Chess in Mobile Legends? Have you played it before? And which one do you like better in comparison, Magic Chess or Chess-TD?
