How to track your MMR in Dota 2? ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

While Valve reworks ranked matchmaking, players tried to get used to the increased scale of points gained per game. Earlier, Divine/Immortal level players' stories about receiving + 20/-30 MMR points in the solo queue were perceived as fairytales, and now this is true among Legend level players.

The highest MMR players will compete at the Kyiv Dota 2 Major event starting from June 2, don't forget to check out.

For example, this is how the rating of Legend V support has changed for the last three days: 

"Whoa, stop! Dota 2 client doesn’t show changes, how did you do it, David Blaine? Are you kidding?" No, you can find out the change in your MMR with some simple tricks and the old version of the Dota 2 client. We'll tell you, how (thanks to smart guys from Reddit):

  • First, you need to open the Steam console. You've to write the following command in your browser (or just copy+paste it): 


  • You'll see a window:

  • Then you'll need to enter eight commands (one after another) in the input field (located below). Steam will start downloading the old game client after that, and it will take about 20 GB:

download_depot 570 381452 2631455340609023871 

download_depot 570 381453 3681876281399214850 

download_depot 570 381454 878961736554813955

download_depot 570 373302 1621449949312630773 

  • The download won't be displayed anywhere, but at the end of all downloads there will be the following eight lines in the console:

Depot download complete : "*the place where Steam is installed*\Steam\steamapps\content\app_570\depot_373303" (177 files, manifest 6890280957208715765)
Depot download complete : "*the place where Steam is installed*\Steam\steamapps\content\app_570\depot_381453" (20 files, manifest 3681876281399214850)
Depot download complete : "*the place where Steam is installed*\Steam\steamapps\content\app_570\depot_381451" (20 files, manifest 5541650808080820318)
Depot download complete : "*the place where Steam is installed*\Steam\steamapps\content\app_570\depot_381454" (20 files, manifest 878961736554813955)
Depot download complete : "*the place where Steam is installed*\Steam\steamapps\content\app_570\depot_381452" (20 files, manifest 2631455340609023871)
Depot download complete : "*the place where Steam is installed*\Steam\steamapps\content\app_570\depot_381455" (55 files, manifest 3412334400119737903)
Depot download complete : "*the place where Steam is installed*\Steam\steamapps\content\app_570\depot_373302" (303 files, manifest 1621449949312630773)

  • The next step is to create a new folder in "*the place where Steam is installed*\Steam\steamapps\content" and name it as you wish, for example, Old Client.
  • After that, open the folder "*the place where Steam is installed*\Steam\steamapps\content\app_570". Move the "game" folder from every "depot" folder with numbers into created Old Client folder
  • Then the "app_570" folder can be deleted, and we can finally start the client.
  • Create a text document in notepad, where the following text is copied:

start game\bin\win64\dota2.exe -console -novid -language english 

  • You should save the file in ".bat" format (for example, "launcher.bat"):
  • Start "launcher.bat" and go to your profile - recent games:

The end: now you can see your MMR numbers and how it changes. 

If you set Solo MMR and Party MMR in the old Dota 2 client in your profile, then they can be "picked up" by services like Dotabuff. A single rating shows MMR on core roles, and a group rating shows MMR on supports. 



How to track reports?

There is another trick that few players know about. Thanks to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), you can understand which matches you were endorsed and got reports. Follow the link. 

Not too convenient? That's why players invented Illuminate extension for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox browsers, and it helps to see the data in a more comfortable style. 

You'll need to click on the extension icon in the browser, and then, already on the Steam page, let Illuminate collect all the data.

Public statistics

Finally, we'll tell you about one interesting website from which we took the picture in the header: The site collects data from those accounts that allowed third-party access. Here you can see various statistics (most of the players, for example, play on the Russia server), some of them are extremely interesting. If you are a support and you have the Ancient I rank, then you are in the top 10% of the world, and the average player rating is between Crusader V and Archon I. The data is not the most popular, but interesting.

We hope that our guide will help to appease your curiosity.
