Dota 2 Season III Ranking Systems
  • Seasonal Rankings represent the level of skill a player achieves in a single season, as determined by their matchmaking rating and other hidden factors. It is only available for ranked matches. Medals are reset at the end of each six-month season. The previous season's medal is displayed next to the new medal for the next season.

Calculation (Read this first!)

  • The exact calculation for earning medals is kept secret by Valve and may change over time.
  • This page reflects rough estimates based on community observations.
  • It is not unusual for your MMR to be a few hundred points from the MMR numbers listed below.
  • MMR is not the only factor in determining medal rank.
  • MMR will not always match their estimated medal.
  • Some players may have medals far above their MMR because:
  • Medals cannot decrease in rank even if they lose many games.
  • The player may have multiple Steam accounts.
  • The system remembers and judges player performance based on their peak skill level, not their current skill level. This is a common mechanism in competitive games used to combat smurfs and intentional derankers.
  • Medals are earned based on the highest skill level obtained during the season and will not decrease for the remainder of the season.
  • Both solo and party ranked MMR is considered when determining medal ranks. Solo MMR plays a larger role.
  • Please discuss any proposed changes on the talk page.


  • As of now, season three's MMR estimates are highly speculative.

Leaderboard medals

  • Players who make it onto the regional Leaderboards will earn Immortal medals, with their rank displayed beneath the medal.
  • All Immortal medals have a sparkling particle effect in-game.
