ppd Jokes About RTZ and Quinn Reaching 11K MMR
After Arteezy reached the 11K MMR mark just days ago, he mocked Quinn for reaching it before him. Now, only after a day, when Quinn was able to join him on this list, he shared it on Twitter. Arteezy replied to Quinn by stating, “Cya quinn” as he had dropped down from 11,000 to 10,910 MMR.
Then came the funniest reply from TI5 winner, ppd as he teased CCnC by stating, “mmr is just a number guys cmon.” With it, he attached his and CCnC’s total earnings as professional players to jokingly highlight that there are some numbers more important than 11k MMR.

MATUMBAMAN Responds to Arteezy’s 11K MMR Feat
On October 19, Arteezy had reached the milestone of 11K MMR. The next day, MATUMBAMAN commended his friend Arteezy for reaching this feat and hoped he could also join him in this elite club with recalibration due for him in 8 days.
Valve had recently announced that players can reset their MMR at their own discretion but in a systematic process. According to this, players need to wait for a certain period of time before they can recalibrate their MMR.
In a reply to MATUMBAMAN’s tweet, Arteezy acknowledged Team Secret’s dominant winning streak by stating, “3 players 11k mmr still cant beat team secret... U dont need to be 11k matu.”
Arteezy had praised MATUMBAMAN back in July where he mentioned the latter’s hard work and humility. Arteezy had said that he had been looking up to MATUMBAMAN since 2015.
It really is heartening to see players take things lightly and have a little bit of a wholesome banter amongst themselves in front of the public eye. After all, in one way or the other, we are all part of the Dota 2 community because we enjoy our time in this wonderful game.
With Quinn joining the 11K MMR charts, 9 players are now in this top tier list. He also becomes the 2nd NA player to accomplish this achievement. MATUMBAMAN has recently been seen grinding a lot of MMR in the pubs and at the time of writing this, he stands at the number two spot behind Alliance’s Limmp in the Europe leaderboards. So, it is only a matter of time before we will witness MATUMBAMAN joining his friends in this novel list.
