The purpose of this study is to analyze how auto-combat function in mobile RPG satisfies player`s desires. The auto-combat is classified into two types-complete and partial- by timing of activation and degree of control. With elicited aspects of play, players` desires are examined based on Lacan`s Desire Theory. A player employing partial auto-combat desires to master higher stages with perfect or flawless control, and one`s `object petit a` is to be the difficulty of the stages. On the other hand, a player applying the complete auto-combat demands to fully comprehend the rules of the game and to attain the rewards of completed stage to build more competent characters. Once a player acquires the desirable object, one recognizes the illusion of one`s achievement and seeks for new objects. In this succession, auto-combat function is utilized as an active action of willingness for fulfilling one`s desire.
