How to Raise Dota 2 MMR: Quinn Spills the Beans
Quinn “Quinn” Callahan, the skilled midlaner of Gaimin Gladiators, recently shared invaluable advice with aspiring Dota 2 players aiming to climb the ranks. In a detailed breakdown, Quinn outlined three crucial aspects essential for substantial MMR improvement.

The North American midlaner faced intense criticism for his display of toxicity leading up to The International 2023. His behavior reached a boiling point in a particularly egregious incident where he made inappropriate remarks about a teammate's deceased mother, sparking widespread outrage. In response to the escalating backlash, Quinn was compelled to issue a public apology for his unacceptable conduct.
Following a period marked by a malfunctioning matchmaking behavior system allowing unlimited reports, Quinn encountered a series of difficulties. Due to this glitch, which enabled excessive reporting without proper oversight, Quinn's behavior score plummeted significantly. Speculation arose that this sudden decline was largely attributed to an overwhelming surge of mass reports directed at Callahan, stemming from personal animosity or dissatisfaction towards him.
Quinn currently holds the second spot in the European Dota 2 leaderboards, sandwiched between two accounts belonging to Entity Gaming carry player Alimzhan “Watson” Islambekov.
