Proof: Player Colors in Dota 2 NOT directly based on MMR

After being placed in the same Solo Queue game on the same teams, positions were:

  • 2 (teal): xp (4706 mmr)
  • 3 (purple): kingraven (4525 mmr)
  • 4 (yellow): daggius (4564 mmr)

After a re-queue with same mmrs (1st game was abandoned in lobby), positions were:

  • 1 (blue): kingraven (4525 mmr)
  • 2 (teal): daggius (4564 mmr)
  • 3 (purple): xp (4706 mmr)

Since player colors are not based on mmr, but there still is overwhelming correlation between mmr and player color, it is likely that player positions in game are actually based on queue time (search range).  It is a sad realization that you cannot always trust your blue player to carry and your orange player to suck, even though this will often still be the case.
