Nightfall is coming for ATF’s #1 spot.

Betboom's safelane player, Egor "Nightfall" Grigorenko has reached the illustrious 14k MMR club. Announced earlier on his twitter, Nightfall celebrated the achievement with a simple "o_0" as well as a callout to Team Falcon's offlaner, ATF. This is a monumental achievement for Nightfall, as few players have been able to climb that high in the Dota 2 ranks.

Nightfall hits 14k MMR

The rivalry between Team Falcon's Ammar "ATF" Al-Assaf and Nightfall has been one of recent times. The rivalry comes from both players consistently matching up in either Grand Finals or Lower Bracket Finals where Team Falcons have consistently shut down their hopes. In the past three major tier one tournaments (Dreamleague S22/S23 & ESL One Birmingham 2024), Betboom had lost to Team Falcons.

The 14,000 MMR club is a small one, with the only members being Team Falcon's ATF and Entity's Watson who have shared this monumental achievement. However, unlike Nightfall, Ammar and watson both reached 14k MMR around the back half of May. So suffice to say that Nightfall is a bit behind the other two in the race to 15k MMR.

Who's in the top 10 of the EU Leaderboards?

Unfortunately, the current Dota 2 leaderboards don't show the fact that Nightfall has reached the upper echelon of Dota 2 ranks. As Nightfall hasn't made it on the European MMR leaderboards despite hitting 14k MMR. Currently, Team Falcons dominate the top spots. With their offlaner ATF and Mid Laner Malr1ne occupying the top two spots, while OG's bzm occupies #3. The full list is as follows:

  1. Ammar_The_F
  2. Malr1ne
  3. bzm
  4. Collapse
  5. Skem
  6. OneJey
  7. 9Class
  8. Quinn
  9. Wisper
  10. King

Regardless of the leaderboard position, Nightfall has still achieved something incredible. Reaching 14k MMR is quite the achievement for any Dota 2 player.
