How is the ranking calculated?
The world ranking is based on teams' achievements over the past year (with severe decay in points throughout each month), recent form over the last 2 months and performance at the last 10 LAN events.
yeah but they don't follow a formula. how many points a tournament gets is subject as it's simply based on their opinion. it's not like tournament points are a function of e.g. the sum of the point of the participating teams or some other fixed formula like that.
That hurts man - ofc u can drag a number until it spits out what u want but this doesntchsnge the fact that HLTV has statistics that not only scales tournaments but also considers them for their ranking for a long period ... keep calm after Katowice mouz will be on top of they deserve to be (if Astralis suck again and mouz keep spinning)
vitality had good stretches twice and won tournaments,performed well all over the year.
ENCE was a fluke even though they lasted long but weren't same after aug nerf.
EG was a fluke and Team Liquid just took benefit of Astralis dropping off and gained a lot of momentum to enable that run.
There are 26 points of difference ... Astralis did not lose a big event but a qualification, so they do not lose a lot of point or not at all
And mousesport won 100 points after their competition won and another 30 points this week. ^^
They will probably be number 1 next week. Or almost
Another one of those threads. *sigh*
The ranking does not just reflect what took place in the week or month just passed, it looks further back and since Astralis was so far ahead they are then still ahead. It is no different than say a championship in some sport, what matters is not just the last couple of matches it is what took place over a whole season.
Not at all mate, Astralis gained less points for winning a major than Liquid gained from winning IEM sydney with 0 good teams other than Liquid attending. (Fnatic participated but they were utter shite at that time)
What Astralis did in this month?
Go tell Usain Bolt he is not #1 after winning 9 golds in olympic in a row, becuase this month he didnt run some shithole competition
Is today the day of retards?
