    He is probably talking about 9k miracle being shat on by 6k pinoys.

    Cross region MMR does not work either.

    Neither will 5k trash but who cares.

    Wings had players with slightly higher MMR than me and won TI, go figure.

    Or, it just proved that recent changes made in DotA, made it a much more luck based game.
    Eliminating some elements and stages of a match, match outcome became much more - a coin flip, than ever before, from the influence of the tragic gold and rubber-band mechanics.

    Or perhaps the contenders were closer than what people expected. Or "good" teams were caught by strats they weren't prepared for like MVP aggression. Or the pubstars became cocky. Or..

    Well every person with some brains has known for a long time that mmr has little to no meaning outside of pubs. Dendi being much better than 9k shits like Noobteezy and that miracle of shit who gets rekt by 6k pinoys proves it.

    wrong. 3 8k players made it to 2nd place. if they were given more time to prepare i'm sure they would've wiped wings. + they assembled just after the shanghai major whereas the majority of wings's roster(4/5) has been playing together since 2014.

    Yeah, saying MMR is worthless in competitive is lazy thinking. OG was a stellar team coming into TI; they were hot and the favorites. I think it is mostly that they weren't prepared for the strats the SEA teams brought. This is obv a dig at Mircale with the MMR is worthless thing, but no one was saying that when OG was stomping teams. You can't just apply that logic when it's convenient for whatever narrative you're trying to push. Consider the whole picture; their success and failures...

    But the mmr part, invidual mechanical performance. Is such a marginal thing. Like how Kuro says it's 60% draft 40% execution. So it's 60% draft, 35% teamwork/synergy and 5% ur mmr.
