lmao cmon NIP barely manage to beat tier 3 teams in bo3 and instantly go from not even top 10 to top 6, you cant find a more undeserve jump in the ranking
2019-02-20 09:15
but you can still find north in top10 :)
2019-02-20 09:15
the ranking is total nonsense atm, we will need a couple of tournament in a row for it to stop being an absolute joke
2019-02-20 09:18
Yeah NiP getting more point than Renegades after this minor is weird. But you know HLTV moves in mysterious ways.

Yes actually the ranking is a bit weird but it will soon be fixed when major is over. If you really want a team ranking atm you should prefer take a look at seeds for the new legends stage, for me it's more representative because the palyers itselfs gave their opinion about top 16 teams in this stage.

It is cuz nip gave massive handicap to everyone as they had no games played last 2 months which lead them having 0 form points, now they got some wins it was just massive boost to their points in this subrank, others already had games so event was less boost for them cuz this subrank is supposed to be about your form, not how many games you play, so even having 5 map wins u can have kinda competitive ranking vs others as nip now has even if ofc probably they lose with their wins not being that impressive and few, still compared to their 0 points before this was big improvement for them compared to other teams.
2019-02-20 09:28
yeah thanks for the explaination but my main point is that the ranking atm isnt even close to be representing the real level of these teams which is supposed to be the main goal of a ranking, hope we will start to get Something decent after a couple of tournament from now

Yes, it is just a mess currently for sure, after major it should already be bit better though but ofc there is still big lack of events and games present.
2019-02-20 09:31
yes like for exemple I think fnatic is still a good team ( yeah I know they really shit the bed at the major but that was a clear choke imo) and they lose like 7 places in the ranking instantly just because of an unforttunate draw against a well playing g2 while nip only had to beat underdogs in bo3 which I think fnatic would have manage easily, problem of this ranking is the lack of context too imo, thats why a classic algorithm cant be perfect
2019-02-20 09:35
To be fair though, fnatic kinda failed real bad losing to both 16th and 15th rank teams, thats why their elo got so bad they had to play G2, I think they kinda got what they deserved.

idk man, those major qual bo1 are just so weird and random tbh, when it came to bo3 they handle those team pretty easily if xizt doesnt fuck up the veto too much, weve seen them go toe to toe with astralis in bo3 and beat liquid in bo3 in the past months, dont think its fair to take it away from them for 1 tournament where they fucked up
2019-02-20 09:43
Yeah, surely ranking won't tell whole story currently for many teams anyway, simply too few events lately, kinda problem we might see being prevalent more often than in past I feel as there is just more and more teams who are competitive but not necessarily more events...
2019-02-20 09:54
and only 3 NA teams in top 10
2019-02-20 09:30
just ignore rankings until major is over

So many teams in that top 10 aren't even going to make it past groups at this major! NIP and C9 in there, LUL
2019-02-20 09:32
worse thing about this is teams like NIP using this messy and out of context ranking on twitter like imagine being proud of it when you only needed to beat some tier 3 team in bo3 to get there in reality
2019-02-20 09:41
Armenia GaRY56 
Yeah I see what you mean. This tweet is so misleading lmao! So many teams are better than them at the moment. They barely even made it to legends stage too. I definitely won't have them to advance out of groups. I mean they can definitely improve with this lineup but idk if dennis or get_right can perform well.
2019-02-20 09:51
that's what happens when no teams play tournaments and their wins lose relevance

Actually it was just NiP getting huge chunk of "form" points by merely playing some matches after break. Ridiculous how much impact that subrank has.

i guess hltv ranked up too high cz they were 6th before the major and then drop down bcs they didnt play for 2 mounths. its like they got their form back or something. but dont take the ranking too srx right now after the major everything will be perfect
