It looks like there is a race to the 11k MMR competition going on as more and more professionals are relentlessly striving to gain MMR in this era of online gaming. Recently, we saw some talented young players reaching the peak of 11K MMR and now veterans of the game are showcasing their A-game in the Pubs. Two new entrants to this elite club of 11K MMR are carry players Gabbi and Arteezy. They become the 7th and 8th players respectively to reach 11k MMR.
Another 11K MMR From SEA- Gabbi
Kim "Gabbi" Villafuerte is the 3rd Filipino and the 4th overall player from Southeast Asia to have achieved this feat of 11K MMR. 23savage, Karl, Abed are the other players from the region who have reached the 11K MMR mark.
Gabbi expressed his happiness of reaching this landmark through a Twitter post.
Gabbi has been playing for TNC Predator for the last two years and has put up some strong and consistent performances for the team. 2019 was a very successful year for the team as they managed to win 4 tournaments while securing a 9 - 12th position at TI9 and taking home a kingly sum of $686,602.
Gabbi currently stands at the number 3 spot in SEA leaderboards just behind 23savage and Abed. He is followed by Karl and his teammate Armel.
It looks like Armel may also be nearing the mark of 11K MMR and we could be hearing his entry into this grandmaster tier of Matchmaking rating anytime soon.
11K MMR- Too Eazy for Arteezy?
After his fellow teammate, Cr1t reached 11K MMR just a week ago, Artour "Arteezy" Babaev has now joined him by becoming the 8th overall player to do so. With this, Aryteezy has also become the first American player to achieve the milestone of 11K MMR.
Through a Twitter post, Arteezy boasted of this achievement by mocking his friend and midlaner for Quincy Crew Quinn "Quinn" Callahan aka CCNC.
Quinn is just one spot behind Arteezy in the American MMR leaderboards so it would possibly be Arteezy trolling his friend for reaching it sooner than him.
Evil Geniuses now has 3 11K MMR players in their squad in the form of Arteezy, Cr1t and Abed. A fun fact is that all three of them hail from different regions.
So far, 8 players have reached 11k MMR.
- Abed “Abed” Azel L. Yusop
- Nuengnara "23savage" Teeramahanon
- Danil "gpk" Skutin
- Egor "epileptick1d" Grigorenko
- Karl "Karl" Jayme
- Andreas “Cr1t” Nielsen
- Kim "Gabbi" Villafuerte
- Artour "Arteezy" Babaev
Now, in this list of 11K MMR, we have players from every region barring China. Certainly, 11K MMR is becoming the norm for top tier players as more and more professionals have achieved this feat lately.
