Season 18 Value Rankings 2: Electric Boogaloo (with Power Rankings!)

  1. All the data is based off of Dotabuff. Some players may have some matches hidden or used smurfs to register. Those players are stinky.
  2. The MMR is based on the Draft Sheet.
  3. This ranking is based on playing in an RD2L-like environment. This is not a ranking of players at their skill levels. Being lower than your Draft MMR position here doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re worse than your MMR. It just means that another player would be more powerful in a 3.8k average game, even if he would be astoundingly bad in your pubs.
  4. This ranking does NOT take into account my opinion on things and is most likely not extremely effective as a predictive model. If you want to look at an editorialized version of this, scroll down to the Editorialized Power Rankings.

  1. MOCA — 6755 APP (Average Player Power)

D Tier

F Tier

  1. I don’t know many players personally and I don’t watch every single game. I have very cursory knowledge of most of the teams and a lot of my opinions are based on hearsay.
  2. I am not a very skilled player, so I might overvalue players higher MMR than me and undervalue those who are lower.
  3. This is in no way supposed to be a rankings based on how much I like certain players, captains or teams. I want to try to be as unbiased as I can, but there is no reason not to get second or third opinions for this.

A Tier

  1. Give up dude — 6490 APP — 4:0

  2. The MMR is based on the Draft Sheet.
  3. This is a ranking of the Draft. It is NOT a power ranking. This shows which captains, in my opinion, did the best job during the draft.
  4. This ranking does not take into account captain value. This was a conscious decision because you can’t exactly draft yourself.

A+ Tier

  1. Give up dude — 6947 APV (Average Player Value)
  2. Maximus — 6624 APV
  3. ♂K[A]livunkka♂ — 6342 APV
