23savage has become the first-ever Dota 2 player to reach the landmark of 12,000 MMR. As other professionals of the game are striving to reach even 11K, Thai superstar carry, Nuengnara "23savage" Teeramahanon, has already raised the bar of the Dota 2 ranked matchmaking system to 12K. He has been grinding so much MMR that he recently reached 11K MMR on his smurf account and 10K MMR on his third account. 23savage expressed the happiness of getting 12K through his social media accounts.
Considering this incredible personal feat, it is a pity that the 18-year-old has been looking for a new team for the past two months.
23savage reaches 12K MMR
23savage has always been a top contender in the MMR race. In July 2020, he became only the second player to hit the 11K mark, just behind Evil Geniuses’ midlaner, Abed “Abed” Azel L. Yusop.
Now, he has become the leader in this race, becoming the first player to reach 12K. Even Abed humorously commented with an angry emote on his tweet, signifying that the Thai player had overrun him this time. Other players also congratulated the 18-year-old player on crossing this landmark.
The Thai player’s milestone of 12K MMR comes at a time when only around 20 players have crossed 11K. It took him three months to move from 10K to 11K and then around seven months to reach 12K from 11K.
Despite breaking records in the public ranked matchmaking system and showcasing everybody the talent he possesses, 23savage has surprisingly not found a new team for the last two months. Even so, he has been only playing for temporary stacks or as stand-ins since July 2020 - when he reached 11K for the first time. With this achievement, he will undoubtedly become the talk of the town for the next few days, which might interest some acclaimed Dota 2 teams to pick him up for the second season of the DPC
