Dota Atomic War: Gameplay

After you have picked your Lord, the game begins. You will need to purchase heroes from the shop, upgrade them and equip them with strong items and spells. A maximum of five heroes can be purchased in the entire game.

You begin the game with 3 gold so you can only buy one hero for the first round. Place the hero on the part of the battlefield board you fit is accurate. You can no longer control the hero once the fight starts, as it will automatically determine the way it wants to take the fight.

Depending on how convincingly you win or lose a round, you will lose a certain portion of your health on your courier character. All players begin with the same amount of health. The last man remaining will be adjudged the winner.

Also, there is a possibility that during certain rounds, neither player will be able to kill the enemy heroes in time. The round will be a draw and both players will receive a deduction in their health.

The positioning of your heroes, the mix of various abilities, the items you use, and the Lord you choose will all play a crucial role in determining your victory.
