A whopping 1.9GB patch has just added ranked matchmaking to Dota 2 Reborn.
Other than allowing you to compete for MMR (which should now be imported from your standard Dota 2 profile), complete Compendium challenges, use any cosmetic items added before 16 July (including Immortal Treasure III items), and hopefully crash the game less often. Yeeeah, that still happens. This might not be the best place to actually try to raise your MMR.
There are some nice other additions in this patch, mind. Tinker’s Rollermaw shouldn’t murder the framerate anymore, the Enter key can now be used to accept matches, the way games are ranked in the Custom Games list has been tweaked, and there are lots and lots of bug fixes. Lots.
To encourage you to try out Dota 2 Reborn, you’ll earn 50% more coins for completing Compendium challenges in the Reborn client than you would in the regular client. Just remember that it’s a beta.
It’s worth noting that this also offers some more ways of getting Compendium points. Two new achievements have been added – one for winning five games in the Reborn beta, and one for winning 15 games. Each of these goals offers a full 500 points, so that’s another 10 levels waiting to be grabbed.

Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
