23savage Becomes First Player to Reach 13K MMR
23savage has become the first-ever Dota 2 player to reach the fabled landmark of 13,000 MMR (Matchmaking Rating). As other professionals of the game are striving to reach even 12K, Thai superstar and current Talon Esports carry, Nuengnara "23savage" Teeramahanon, has already raised the bar of the Dota 2 ranked matchmaking system to a whole new level.
23savage has been grinding so much public matches during the off-season that his efforts have bear fruit as he continues to break records in and out of the game.

23savage expressed the happiness of hitting the fabled milestone on his social media accounts.
In the previous years, nobody has ever reached the fabled 13K MMR mark as many players were struggling to even get 12K MMR within their own region. However, there were a few players that were in contention of breaking the 13K MMR record such as Danil "gpk" Skutin, Cheng "NothingToSay" Jin Xiang, Quinn "Quinn" Callahan, Illya "Yatoro" Mulyarchuk, Nuengnara "23savage" Teeramahanon and Souliya "JaCkky" Khoomphetsavong to name a few.
However, it was worth noting that 23savage became the first player to ever reach 12K MMR back in March 2021 and has since become one of the top carries in the world with Talon Esports.
On the Dota 2 Southeast Asian (SEA) leaderboards, he is atop of the leaderboard as he leads in front of Bleed’s new mid laner, Kordan, Army Geniuses’ Yowe and Fnatic’s Armel.
Despite his disappointing TI11 appearance with Talon Esports, the player is still playing a lot of pubs during the off-season and has played over 88 games in the last eight days according to his profile. He has won 48 games out of the 88 games and lost 40 of them, however his impressive win rate of 54.5% is enough to establish himself as a pro player worthy of boasting one of the highest win rates in SEA pubs.
Playing as his favorite role in the game, 23savage played Faceless Void, Monkey King & Slark the most in his recent games.
As the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) 2022-23 is reportedly scheduled to begin on 9th January, the player is likely to focus on professional Dota 2 in the coming days as he looks to bond with his new teammates. Talon Esports will start its journey in the Upper Division of the Southeast Asian regional league, however it will face tough opposition from the likes of Fnatic, BOOM Esports & Blacklist International to name a few.
