After Abed Azel ‘Abed’ L. Yusop reached the 11,000 Matchmaking Rating all the way back in May of 2020, a second player has now reached the amazing achievement as Nuengnara ‘23savage’ Teeramahanon confirms his accomplishment.
A few years ago, only a few select players that put in the time and effort were able to reach the peaks of the Dota 2 MMR system as 10k was once a huge achievement. However, in recent times, especially with the lack of international tournaments due to the global pandemic, a large number of professional players are finding it easy to break that barrier. That said, a short time ago, one player went above and beyond as 11k MMR was registered by Abed in May of this year.
With the crisis continuing, a second player has reached that magical number with Fnatic’s 23savage crossing the border last night. Confirmed with a post on his Twitter account, the young Thai player has now found himself in the upper echelons of the Dota 2 MMR logs.
As can be seen in the image attached to the Tweet, 23savage clearly plays a lot more Morphling than anything else – which explains his normal destruction with the hero. Some of his other notable heroes can be seen as Invoker, Juggernaut and Faceless Void, all of which we have seen the player excel on at one stage or another.
Although Fnatic were unable to take down the mighty Geek Fam at the recent ONE Esports Dota 2 SEA League, they have registered a string of amazing first place finishes throughout the year – even beating OG at the DOTA Summit 12 just before lockdown kicked in across the globe. For now, we wait to see which player will be the next to reach this amazing milestone and join both Abed and 23savage at the peak of Dota 2 MMR.
