Reset your rank in Dota 2: Perks and downsides

Now that you know how to recalibrate your Dota 2 MMR number, let's talk about what happens after you press the magic button.

First, you should know that recalibration matches can give you from 70 to 90 MMR points for each win. A normal ranked match would give you around 30 to 35 MMR, depending on your performance and slight MMR differences between teams.

Be warned, you can only recalibrate once every year, which means you're stuck with your new medal until then. But you can always rank your way back to your past best, right? However, if you're not feeling strong enough, remember you can recalibrate with a party. We strongly recommend you to invite your friends to your Dota 2 rank reset journey.

Just remember, even pro players can lose MMR when they recalibrate. Do it only if you're feeling your rank is not an accurate representation of your current skill level.
