He wasn't asking for your own lists of the top 5 you braindead morons.
hltv ranking is joke
And 6 EU in top 10
No need to pretend that NA is better or anything :)
It's a very interesting switch from last year which was just SK and FaZe fighting for top1. While there are two NA teams it doesn't feel like it at all... If you ranked by how strong teams looked in the past couple months most would probably say Liquid would be in top5 but not C9. So yeah it feels like the current listing is inaccurate in that regard.
SK being top 3 now is by far the weirdest change I have noticed I really hope that they find a way to make boltz work as a permanent 5th. I just remember cologne 2017 and how flawless they were when fer + cold were hitting any and all shots, the plays were almost picture perfect, sure FalleN seemed super weak but it didn't matter because literally everyone else was making up for it perfectly. I haven't seen them play as well as they did then since cologne.
I think Liquid definitely deserves top5 for sure and I hate Liquid. It almost seems like Zeus is just an absolute mastermind of CS and be-all-end-all best coach in the game rn not to discredit the individual players of course. Its still so weird for me that -main awp, +rifler was as successful as it was.
I honestly think Mouse looks like the most consistently great team in the world right now. What I mean by that is while yes they choked many times in the major and everything there are just very few games where mouz gets dominated by another team they are always able to fight really hard even if its a loss. It almost feels like if mouz improved as a team by even the slightest of margins that they could be top1 easy.
I really think fnatic current lineup deserves top5 at the very least. I really hope fnatic doesn't -golden +xizt. In the entirety of the time that I have watched CS I haven't seen NiP have any clear direction like there was ever an actual plan besides running early round executes every now and then (kinda like EnVy right now).
i think real top 5 in 2018 so far is
