This article will describe what calibration is in Dota 2, and how to prepare a new Dota 2 account for calibration, what is the maximum rating given in Dota 2 by calibration.
Briefly about the factors on which the calibration depends:
|KDA (character’s score, which includes the number of killed opponents, as well as the number of deaths and the player’s help to teammates)||Many people firmly believe that after picking Zeus and getting the 6th level, it is enough to just stand in the forest without worrying about winning the team. However, even though such tactics take place, their results are not always unambiguous. Therefore, it does not guarantee a high KDA and good calibration ratio.|
|Win Rate (average player success rate)||As in the case described above, many people get hung up on win rate, but this is far from the only factor that affects the initial MMR.|
|Damage dealt to enemy heroes (damage that a hero does with a standard attack)||Many take the caster hero with the most powerful AOE damage. They may differ from patch to patch. However, there is no reason to believe that this moment is really defining. It is better to take characters who will bring real benefit to teammates and not just use an ultimate ability every few minutes.|
|GPM||Gold per minute|
|XPM||Experience per minute|
Despite the fact that all of these recommendations are important, remember to develop a complete understanding of the game. This will bring real value to the team.
What is Dota 2 calibration for?
MMR calibration is the first 10 ranked games for any MMR match (there are only two of them – single (solo) and group). After passing them, the rating (MMR) will appear in the profile, based on which the selection of opponents is performed. As a result, many players mistakenly believe that the MMR calculated by the system depends only on these 10 matches. But in fact, the rating changes later, based on the latest results.
Calibrating a new Dota 2 account
Currently, you cannot take part in ranked matches if your account is less than level 20. For this reason, you will first need to level up your account. And for this, you need to play 100 hours in any mode, but all pick mode is best.
Helpful Hint: Don’t try to play the matches as quickly as possible. In fact, when calibrating, the system takes into account absolutely all games. Therefore, it is beneficial for the initial rating to be serious about matches in Dota from the very beginning.
First calibration of Dota 2: who to calibrate MMR – with supports, carries or miders
Judging only by the above parameters, we can conclude that playing as a support when the Dota 2 rating is being calibrated is not the best choice: they kill less often, practically do not farm, and slowly raise the level.
But in reality, a lot depends on the support’s play: he doesn’t have to die unnecessarily, and if he places wards, acquires items, and saves teammates on the teleporter, he will be of real benefit.
In other words, absolutely any role will help you to calibrate. It all depends on the skills of the game and not the statistical characteristics.
There is no maximum MMR in the game, but the biggest result that players have ever achieved is about 11,000.
3.250 MMR (solo).
You need to choose the role that will benefit the team in the current roster. Generalist gamers who know how to play as all types of characters will win more often. Learn to play different types of heroes in different roles.
