why? Liquid vs Mouz - two top 5 teams playing so 4 stars
two top 5 teams match vs a top 5 and a top 10. Thats why. Its just hltv ranking. Cloud9 have lower rank cuz they dont have partnership so no events to farm rank. Its decided purely based on hltv ranking, the stars that is.
it's according to hltv rank cloud9 is outside of top 5 that's why it gets less stars
If you are on PC, you can hover over the stars on home page matches and it tells you, what it means
It's weird because of rankings. Top 20 is pretty fucked up because of blast + break + roster shuffles and should be better after the major
Nr 3 and 5? Obviously its 4 stars when nr 1 and nr 8 meet. Stars also comes with the even as a badeline. Rankings are just fucked
Its by HLTV ranking I think
And by the match importance. Final is always 4-5 stars no matter the team ( in S tier events at least)
