Nightfall Joins the Prestigious 14k MMR Club in Dota 2: A Look at All Players Who Have Reached This Milestone

23. June 2024 by Valentin Pasetti

BetBoom’s safelane player, Egor “Nightfall” Grigorenko, has reached the coveted 14,000 MMR mark in Dota 2. Announced with a simple “o_0” on his Twitter, Nightfall also called out Team Falcon’s offlaner, Ammar “ATF” Al-Assaf. This achievement places Nightfall among an elite group of players who have scaled the heights of Dota 2’s ranking system.

Nightfall Hits 14k MMR

The rivalry between Nightfall and ATF has been a focal point in recent tournaments, with the two often clashing in Grand Finals or Lower Bracket Finals.

Team Falcons has repeatedly thwarted BetBoom’s aspirations, defeating them in three major tier-one tournaments: DreamLeague Season 22, DreamLeague Season 23, and ESL One Birmingham 2024.

Nightfall’s entry into the 14,000 MMR club is significant, joining the ranks of ATF and Entity’s Watson, who both achieved this milestone in May. Although Nightfall reached this mark later than his rivals, his accomplishment remains remarkable in the competitive Dota 2 scene.


The Elite 14k MMR Club Members

As of now, only a handful of players have managed to reach 14,000 MMR. These include:

  • Ammar “ATF” Al-Assaf (Team Falcons)
  • Alimzhan “watson” Islambekov (Entity)
  • Egor “Nightfall” Grigorenko (BetBoom)

The Race to 15k MMR

With Nightfall now part of this elite club, the race to 15,000 MMR intensifies. ATF and Watson set the bar high by achieving 14k MMR earlier, but Nightfall’s recent milestone keeps him in contention. The journey to 15k will undoubtedly be a thrilling competition among these top players.


Top Players in the EU Leaderboards

Despite Nightfall’s impressive 14k MMR, he has not yet appeared on the European MMR leaderboards. Currently, Team Falcons dominate the leaderboard, with ATF and mid-laner Malr1ne holding the top two spots. The top 10 EU leaderboard positions are as follows:

  1. Ammar “ATF” Al-Assaf (Team Falcons)
  2. Malr1ne (Team Falcons)
  3. Bozhidar “bzm” Bogdanov (OG)
  4. Magomed “Collapse” Khalilov
  5. Rolen Andrei “skem” Gabriel Ong
  6. OneJey
  7. 9Class
  8. Quinn “Quinn” Callahan
  9. Enzo “Wisper” Gianoli O’Connor
  10. King


Celebrating the Achievement

Nightfall’s climb to 14k MMR is a testament to his skill and dedication to Dota 2. Although he has yet to make it onto the current leaderboards, his achievement is no less significant. Reaching 14k MMR is a milestone that few players achieve, marking him as one of the best in the game.
