He is also the 2nd Filipino to reach this achievement
On February 1, Geek Fam’s Position 1, Marc Polo Luis “Raven” Fausto managed to snatch the 10,000 MMR milestone in Dota 2. Guess we have someone here who’s starting his month right?
A photo of his MMR circulated on Reddit with it being 10 000 for Core and 9 450 for Support.
After reaching these numbers, he has also become Southeast Asia’s Top 1 Dota 2 Core and Support player.
For those who are unaware of why this is a big deal for many, well, mainly because reaching this matchmaking ranking (MMR) is very hard to do so. You’ll have to grind and win thousands of games first. In history, only 5 people have managed to reach the 10k MMR namely, Abed, MidOne, Ramzes666, Arteezy, and now Raven.
One for the books
He has also been dubbed as the second Filipino Dota 2 player with this rank after Abed Yusop. And that’s not all, he is the first player in almost 3 years to attain this figure after the MMR system rework in 2017. A moderation was done in the previous years that reduced MMR for people that were at the top.
Raven is a Filipino veteran Dota 2 player who is currently playing for the Malaysian esports team, Geek Fam, together with fellow Pinoy, Carlos “Kuku” Palad. Before, both of them were part of the Filipino Dota 2 team, TNC.Predator.
