In Dota 2, there are medals for everyone. But until you reach the Leaderboard, where the best players are, you will get 7 different medals.

Ranks are the recognition players get for their dedication to Dota 2. All medals have value and a streak to the top.

How to get patent

Not all the details that matter to rank up are known, but there is some important information.

  • Solo games have more value. Yes, the ranking system favors solo players more than party players. In fact, from the Legend patent, only solo matches help to climb.
  • All ranks up to Divine have 5 levels. Your medal can have up to 5 stars that define your status within the rank. When you reach 5 stars, you will be very close to moving up to the next rank.
  • You don't go down from rank. Once you reach the highest medal of the season, you cannot fall. When a new season starts, you calibrate your rank after 10 matches.
  • Seasons have 6 months. It's during this period that you'll struggle to get as far as possible in the medal system.
