TI10 Champion Yatoro Reaches 12K MMR
The International 10 (TI10) champion Illya "Yatoro" Mulyarchuk is not only breaking ground in the professional scene but is also making strides in the personal milestone department. Over the past few days, Yatoro has been spamming a number of games that have propelled him to 12,000 MMR, marking his rise up the ranks of ranked matchmaking. Dmitry "Korb3n" Belov, Team Spirit's manager, shared this news on Twitter. Yatoro now joins an elite group of Dota 2 players around the world who have previously reached the 12K milestone.
TI10 winner Yatoro reaches 12K MMR
Korb3n shared a screenshot of Yatoro's profile on Twitter, which showed the player's MMR. Korb3n appeared to be delighted with this achievement and expressed his love for his teammates.
In the past, only some of the top core players in the world have reached the 12K MMR mark, which includes Danil "gpk" Skutin, Cheng "NothingToSay" Jin Xiang, Quinn "Quinn" Callahan, Nuengnara "23savage" Teeramahanon, Souliya "JaCkky" Khoomphetsavong, and Cheng "vtFαded" Jia Hao. 23savage was the first player to cross 12K MMR in March 2021.
Since Yatoro emerged as the champion at TI10, he streamed a lot until he was banned from Twitch a couple of times. Despite this, the player is still playing a lot of pubs and has played 53 games in the last eight days according to Dota 2 Pro Tracker. He has won 37 of these 53 games and lost only 16 of them, establishing himself as a pro player worthy of boasting one of the highest win rates in pubs. Primarily playing as the carry, he has favored Anti Mage and Faceless Void the most in these games.
Yatoro is atop the European Dota 2 MMR Leaderboards at the time of writing this article. The majority of the top 10 positions in the current chart are mostly occupied by CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) players.
As a result of the sheer number of pubs he plays coupled with his raw talent, it is likely that Yatoro will be on the first list of players to reach the 13K MMR milestone. As the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) 2021-22 is reportedly scheduled to begin in 20 days, the player is likely to focus on professional Dota 2 in the coming days. As part of its bid to qualify for TI11 and defend its title, Team Spirit will start its journey in the Upper Division of the Eastern European regional league.
