no, I dont take hltv serious tbh
in my opinion if liquid is the best team right now, they HAVE to make playoffs, and at least make the finals.
they are the biggest favourite ever to win a major.
no one should contest them..
Chances in s1mple and liquid to win major same) BTW liquid last time was in final exact with s1mple and one loose vs astarlis in semis, all another major was very worst. StarLadder tours also very lucky for navi last time, so who know maybe destiny of navi to win this major:)
So lets say, Liquid goes 0-3, Vitality or Astralis goes 3-0, and continues and even wins the Major, then ofc Liquid wont be #1 anymore.
EDIT: I completly forgot about the Points, but it still COULD be possible, and i could be wrong.
I think they would still keep #1 don’t forget that they have won like 5 tournaments in a row or smth like that. They are at 1000 points and the next closest is like 500 or so. They would definitely lose a lot of points though.
