Raven Hits The 11K MMR Mark 

The position 1 player for Fnatic shared his achievement through a Facebook post.

Including Raven, only 16 pro players have reached the 11K MMR mark, with eight of these hailing from the SEA region. Five of these are Dota 2 pros from the Philippines. Evidently, the SEA region boasts some talented players. 

The 16 players that have crossed this landmark are:

Of these, epileptick1d (who recently changed his name to Nightfall) and 23savage are the only two players who have not only crossed the 11K MMR milestone twice using smurf accounts.

The Filipino is positioned at the number 4 spot in the SEA Dota 2 Leaderboards chart.

Having played for all of the prominent SEA teams like Fnatic, TNC Predator and Mineski, Raven has been one of the most esteemed carry players in SEA Dota for the last four years. His major accomplishments came during his time with TNC where he bagged a 7-8th spot finish at TI6 and a runner-up spot at MDL Macau. With TNC, he has also been able to become the champion of the World Electronic Sports Games (WESG), 2016 and 2018

In July 2020, he replaced 23savage as the position 1 player for Fnatic. His time with the organization until now has not been a rosy one as they have only finished at the 3rd, 9-10th and 4th spots in three tournaments.

Correction note: An earlier version of this story excluded the Lao player, Souliya "JaCkky" Khoomphetsavong, from the list of Dota 2 pro players to have reached 11K MMR. As a result, Raven is the 16th overall player, not the 15th, and the eighth from SEA, not the seventh, to reach this milestone.
