Because they failed to Pay 2 million bucks to Blast in order to get access to the Blast finals, so 2nd at major + Blast finals > major winners
because heroic won the next tournament and got more points
Because Heroic has done more recently in terms of total results over a longer time period
Yep, the hltv top has too much of a recency bias
Outsiders had a lot of luck anyway. Fluke Major run
Teams that don't play after major will not rank anymore, only team that qualifie for blast
Like Furia, probably will lose spot to og or g2 cuz g2 and og will play blast and furia dont
There’s not a big difference between winning major or other S tier tournaments that are huge like Blast. Yea major is more worth but it’s not worth more than 1st and 2nd place. Outsiders is not good enough
2nd at major and then winning the next T1 event= number 1 rank. not that hard to understand
win many tournaments > win the biggest tournament. it seems
HLTV ranking has been kinda of a joke for some time, their formula is not working at all
flukesiders should be outside top 10 wdym, heroic goats
Because rio major counts for less than other majors
After Dust removal there is a chance that Heroic will be able to beat VP, so the ranking is not so wrong.
I think what he's asking is how did Outsiders lose 130 points. They had 1000 points after winning the major an they didnt play anywhere since, so they had 1000 points. Once Heroic won blast, Heroic got 1000 points while Outsiders somehow dropped to 870 points and to be honest I also have no clue where 130 poitns went to be honest, but i m probably not familiar with how it works ,but ya.
i don't understand how they lost 130 points in one week wtf
and heroic boosted on 1000 points with that blast win WHAT
Ranking are irrelevant
Jame time is now
The dynasty is underway. Your favorite team is about to get nut stomped by VP/Outsiders until Jame retires to live on his alpaca farm
Ranking in general is not too relevant:
1) paid invites give you ranking - even if you lose every single match on those paid invite tournaments you will still get ranking points - basically p2w
2) Tournament organizers not wanting Russian teams but being proudly sponsored by the most murderous sponsor ever - US Air Force which is directly responsible for millions of deaths since the WWII as they are the ones doing the actual killing. Not like Arabs Frankie talked about who pay to support - these guys do it. And they do war crimes, like them directly. Not like Russian players who happen to have a bad RNG of being spawned in some area - these guys chose to do it.
It's all just out the window, we can watch CS for the fun of matches but ranking is irrelevant apart from teams trying to score sponsorships based off of it.
The guy who is behind the ranking system is absolutely clueless. Imagine being Outsiders, winning the major, being first place and after a fucking blast event (which shouldn't be considered as a s tier lan with just 8 teams and shit format) heroic takes the nr. 1 spot from them.
Not that the players should even care about it, but the concept itself is pretty brain-dead.
and faze jumped 5 spots?
hltv rankings are so weird past few months, way too many changes that makes absolutely no sense.
outsiders had 484 points, winning major -> 1000 points, then down to 870 for not participating at all, and heroic went from 755 to 1000, and all of that because of a small tournament.
this makes absolutely no sense at all, I have no idea what happened this year, but it's like:
"hey x, you won a tournament, here take the first spot for a week, next week you'll go down ok?"
