Seasonal Rankings

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 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.
    • The system remembers player performance based on peak skill level, not current skill level. This is a common mechanism in competitive games to combat smurfs and intentional derankers.

Medals

  • MMR estimates are highly speculative. Please add your input on our talk page.
