TNC Armel Reaches 11K MMR

Armel has been grinding a lot of MMR in this online era of gaming as he regularly streams on his Facebook channel. The Filipino had been aiming for the landmark for a long time and now, after reaching it, Armel sits at the number 3 spot on the Dota 2 Leaderboards: SEA chart, just behind Abed and 23savage.

Armel’s entry into the 11K MMR club also showcases the talent that these young prodigies possess. Out of the 11 players who have reached 11K MMR, six of them are just 20 years or below. Armel has also joined his fellow Gabbi to become the second player from TNC Predator to reach 11K MMR.
