Seasonal Rankings represent the level of skill a player achieves in a single season, as determined by their matchmaking rating (MMR) and other hidden factors. It is only available for ranked matches. Medals are reset at the end of each six-month season. The previous season's medal is displayed next to the new medal for the next season.
Calculation (Read this first!)
- The exact calculation for earning medals is kept secret by Valve and may change over time.
- This page reflects rough estimates based on community observations.
- MMR will not always match their estimated medal. It is normal to be off by a few hundred points from the estimates below.
- MMR is not the only factor in determining medal rank.
- Some players may have medals far above their MMR because:
- The player may have multiple Steam accounts.
- Medals are based on the highest skill level attained during the season and cannot decrease even if a player loses many games.
- The system remembers and judges player performance based on their peak skill level, not their current skill level. This is a common mechanism in competitive games used to combat smurfs and intentional derankers.
- Both solo and party ranked MMR is considered when determining medal ranks. Solo MMR plays a larger role.
- As of now, season three's MMR estimates are highly speculative. Please add your input on our talk page.
- Players who make it onto the regional Leaderboards will earn Immortal medals, with their rank displayed beneath the medal.
- All Immortal medals have a sparkling particle effect in-game.
