After publishing our inaugural world ranking in April, we've put together an updated version with over three more months of competition in the books.

Our previous ranking was updated in mid-April and three big events, as well as a plethora of smaller ones, have since taken place. New top teams have emerged, many have gone through changes, and one has ceased to exist.

Last time Copenhagen Games used our ranking for seedings, and this time G3 will do the same for the $45,000 tournament next week in London. We've extended them to feature each of G3's twelve participants.

Although we've only listed results dating back to the previous major, EMS One Katowice, we have not ignored everything that took place prior to the arbitrary cut-off date in mid-March.

LAN play has a heavy emphasis over online results as usual, and though we've tried to stay as objective as possible, this is nevertheless a subjective ranking and not a definitive assessment of a team's capabilities.

We have considered the results from the on-going season of SLTV StarSeries, but since final placings are not yet determined, they are not listed under online results.

The ranking was composed by Tomi "lurppis" Kovanen and Petar "Tgwri1s" Milovanovic. Continue reading for the HLTV.org July 2014 world ranking.


How will ESL One Cologne shape this ranking next? 

 

12. Sweden ESG (new)

LAN results Online results
3-4th Sweden ESPORTSM Finals 2nd Hitbox Arena Showdown
5-8th Sweden DreamHack Summer 7-8th Hitbox Arena Championship
9-16th Denmark Copenhagen Games 3-4th DreamHack Summer qualifier

ESG are hardly the former SK Gaming team led by Faruk "pita" Pita anymore since he retired from gaming, but they've built on the solid performance at DreamHack Summer. In Jönköping they bested fnatic twice on de_inferno to advance to the quarter-finals, and they even took a map off NiP in ESPORTSM Finals to make their claim at being one of the top teams. Since then pita retired, but the player change, or losing SK Gaming's support, have not affected their performance negatively whatsoever.

The star of the team is Mikail "Maikelele" Bill, who has quietly been one of the better players so far in 2014. It's clear him and Alexander "SKYTTEN" Carlsson - the two former LGB members - have stumbled onto another promising team here. Marcus "Delpan" Larsson has proved he has it in CS:GO, just like in Counter-Strike 1.6, with solid performances at DreamHack Summer with Lemondogs, as well as in SLTV StarSeries X and dignitas SCAN Invitational online.

Player Age Rating
Sweden Mikail "Maikelele" Bill 23 1.07
Sweden Marcus "Delpan" Larsson 24 1.05
Sweden Joel "emilio" Mako 21 1.02
Sweden Alexander "SKYTTEN" Carlsson 21 0.98
Sweden Fredrik "roque" Honak 22 0.86

For this team the only thing holding them back from a better placing is lack of tournaments. So far they've only attended three events - one of them months removed from today under the name Property, with a poor overall finish - and online results can only carry you so far. If they can play at G3 like they have online, they could be the dark horse team of the event. They are also favorites to qualify for ESL One this weekend, and are looking really good in SLTV StarSeries X to make it to the finals in Kiev.

ESG are the only new team to appear on this ranking, and if they play their cards right for the next month, could be even higher in the next ranking. These potentially upcoming three events will give us a much better idea of how good the Swedes are as a team, and whether they have potential to truly compete with the world's best teams on all maps and on LAN, or whether they will remain fringe contenders with some upset potential.

11. Sweden fnatic (-7)

9-12th Sweden DreamHack Summer

5-8th Poland EMS One Katowice  

Ever since the win at DreamHack Winter last November fnatic have been steadily falling. They have yet to make top four at an international event after that grand final versus NiP ended - excluding four team DreamHack Stockholm Invitational - despite being close almost every time. In Katowice fnatic suffered a nail-biting loss to LGB, and in Copenhagen they lost both maps against dignitas in overtime. Despite beating NiP in the wee-hours of the night at ESPORTSM, the team opted to make changes due to going out in the group stage after two losses to SK Gaming at DreamHack Summer.

Both Jonatan "Devilwalk" Lundberg and Null element were forced out of the team, with the former becoming the coach -- though the extent of his role is unknown at this time, with Markus "pronax" Wallsten remaining the in-game leader. fnatic recruited two former LGB players in Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer and Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson, and have without a doubt added more skill to their roster. Only problem? fnatic's issues were in closing out games, and LGB - the team they recruited their new players from - were the second worst out all top teams.

Player Age Rating
Sweden Olof "olofm" Kajbjer 22 1.12
Sweden Robin "flusha" Rönnquist 20 1.10
Sweden Jesper "JW" Wecksell 19 1.09
Sweden Freddy "KRiMZ" Johansson 20 1.05
Sweden Markus "pronax" Wallsten 23 0.94

Though their results in SLTV StarSeries X have been promising - their resume includes wins over LDLC, mouz and Titan - a narrow loss to LDLC in Caseking of the Hill #1 shows they probably haven't yet gotten much better. It's very likely fnatic will climb further up on this ranking in the next edition, as they will attend both G3 and ESL One Cologne, but for now their resume doesn't have anything on it that would grant them a higher placing, especially with all of their achievements coming with the previous roster that is no longer intact. fnatic are a good example of what can happen to a team after one fluky win, even at a major.

They are one of the two teams in this ranking who dropped a whopping seven placings. They could be the biggest winners next time around with a pair of good finishes -- especially with a third event, SLTV StarSeries X Finals, also barely over a month away. For now the only way you could rank fnatic any higher is if your ranking was based on potential, which ours is not. We rank based on results, and this roster - or the previous core - simply don't have enough of them to earn a higher spot than any of the ten teams above them.

Focus on JW from fnatic

10. France Epsilon (+0

LAN results  Online results
2nd Spain DreamHack Valencia 5-6th Hitbox Arena Championship
3-4th Sweden DreamHack Summer
9-12th Poland EMS One Katowice

The core of Epsilon has been together for ages under the Clan-Mystik name, but having changed both their in-game leader - from Michael "HaRts" Zanatta to Robin "GMX" Stahmer - and their star player - from Kenny "kennyS" Schrub to Richard "shox" Papillon - it hardly resembles the team it used to be. They've only attended two international events with shox on the team, but so far the results are promising, though a little misleading.

At DreamHack Summer Epsilon lucked into an easy top four finish due to Lemondogs winning their group, and in Valencia last week they only had to overcome on top team, HellRaisers, to get into the grand final -- though they played a competitive series versus LDLC as well. The win over HR was impressive though, and it goes to show just how incredibly good shox is. Since then the team removed Valentin "mistou" Balbastro from the team, and added a sniper in Joey "fxy0" Schlosser, but it's too early to draw any real conclusions from the change.

Player Age Rating
France Richard "shox" Papillon 22 1.22
France Joey "fxy0" Schlosser 21 1.19
France Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey 19 1.08
France Gordon "Sf" Giry 22 0.99
France Robin "GMX" Stahmer 21 0.93

Online Epsilon have not impressed. They are 1-2 in SLTV StarSeries X with losses against HR and ESG, though fxy0 is still very new to the team. A big part of this team's future is tied to how fxy0 develops. shox can't shoulder all the weight forever - as proven by him running out of steam in the Valencia grand final after single-handedly carrying Shoxilon there - and the rest of the team has proven incapable of putting up the kind of numbers required to beat top teams.

It seems that Epsilon are one move away from becoming a contender, even with shox playing like one of the best three players in the world. One thing to consider, together with fxy0's development, is how GMX turns out to be as an in-game leader. He is still fresh at the job, and it's possible he will get better at it as time goes by. For now the training wheels are off, as they have the ESL One qualifier coming on the weekend, followed by G3 next week. Epsilon must perform to hold the tenth spot on the ranking.

9. France Titan (-7

5-8th Sweden DreamHack Summer 3-4th Caseking of the Hill #1
3rd Ukraine SLTV StarSeries IX Finals 1st Hitbox Arena Championship
5-8th Denmark Copenhagen Games 3rd FACEIT Spring League
9-12th Poland EMS One Katowice  

The time has come to face the music for Titan. Our last ranking saw them undeservedly hold onto the second place because it was hard to move them too far down, but there really is no good case for them to be above any of the remaining teams. Aside from three four-team events, they have yet to make the top four at any event in 2014, which in itself is really worrisome. They also lost their best player shox and recruited kennyS, who is also very good, but hardly fits the team as well.

Titan have recruited a coach to try to bring them back to relevance, and in their defense they haven't gone out against bad teams -- Virtus.pro and HellRaisers in Katowice, LDLC in Copenhagen, Na`Vi and NiP in Kiev, and both HR and NiP in Jönköping. Still, to be ranked better than those teams you have to beat them, and especially losing to LDLC on a map Titan is known not to practice is a tough pill to swallow when trying to gauge their level as a team. The pieces don't seem to fit the puzzle anymore.

Player Age Rating
France Kenny "kennyS" Schrub 19 1.19
Belgium Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom 20 1.13
France Nathan "NBK" Schmitt 20 1.11
France Edouard "SmithZz" Dubourdeaux 25 1.05
Belgium Kévin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans 24 0.95

Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom showed good form - for the first time since ESWC 2013 - at both Copenhagen Games and SLTV StarSeries IX Finals, but overall remains inconsistent and hasn't seemed to adjust too well to kennyS joining. Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt is the swing player in this team - capable of making them competitive against anyone - but the burden to carry them is too much. Edouard "SmithZz" Dubourdeaux hasn't had a suitable role since kennyS joined, and going towards a more free playing style makes Kévin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans more irrelevant than ever.

At this point the French-Belgian team is simply lost. They have plenty of potential, and they've come close to beating some of the world's best teams, but it seems mental problems are once again stopping them from truly realizing their potential -- which was the case prior to shox joining as well. Online they've been mediocre at best lately, with losses to fnatic, HR, Na`Vi and ESG to show for their efforts. The pressure is on Titan to perform, or they could be looking at more changes after ESL One Cologne concludes.


ScreaM's Titan are no longer an elite team 

 

8. United States compLexity (-1

LAN results Online results
2nd United States ESEA Invite S16 Global Finals 3rd CEVO Pro Season 4
2nd United States SoCAL Revival #2
5-8th Poland EMS One Katowice

compLexity is a tough team to rank. They've clearly gone downhill since they lost Braxton "swag" Pierce and recruited Todd "anger" Williams - which their results online and at SoCAL Revival #2 reflected - but that great showing at ESEA Invite Season 16 Global Finals completely changed coL's course around. However, losing two players within days of that event once more renders the result much less useful, and we're stuck trying to come up with a way to value their performances.

Online coL have been atrocious; they lost against MANAJUMAS in CEVO Pro Season 4, and this roster has only ever won one double overtime match against iBUYPOWER - only to lose later on in the same tourney. They're no longer the continent's best team, though they remain competitive with iBUYPOWER, and there are no other teams that are even remotely threatening to them on LAN. Recruiting Mike "shroud" Grzesiek and getting the newcomer's enthusiasm on-board may also help with online performances in the future.

Player Age Rating
United States Spencer "Hiko" Martin 24 1.15
United States Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert 23 1.10
Canada Kory "Semphis" Friesen 25 0.99
United States Derek "dboorN" Boorn 25 0.85
Canada Mike "shroud" Grzesiek 20 0.80

Current roster in online play; not announced officially

Derek "dboorN" Boorn is a proven performer and likely will offset the consistent play by Sean "seang@res" Gares over the long term, with more rifling upside. The issues are that the change forces Kory "SEMPHIS" Friesen to be the in-game leader - a role he did great in at ESEA, but likely in a non-sustainable manner - and also sees their only sniper depart the team. shroud has way more long term potential for growth than anger did, but ESL One Cologne is just a month away, and there isn't much time left for growth.

compLexity's three series wins over NiP, Na`Vi and Virtus.pro get them an eighth place - and had they kept the previous roster, they may have been ranked above iBUYPOWER, even though they are clearly weaker head-to-head. This team has some deep issues in how their roster is constructed, but it's not inconceivable that SEMPHIS could develop into a good leader now that his fragging has been lackluster for a while, and shroud could turn into a solid fragger. A lot relies on Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert, the player who carried them at ESEA, but they are good for top eight.


All eyes will be on shroud in Cologne 

 

7. United States iBUYPOWER (+4

13-16th Poland EMS One Katowice

iBUYPOWER are the hardest team to rank on this list. On one hand they've dominated in North America since recruiting swag, and won the only international tournament - as well as two North American ones - they've attended. Yet they have only beaten compLexity four times in the process, and scored series wins over the weak OverGaming team and Virtus.pro. Not exactly the kind of resume you'd expect from a top seven team in the world.

It's hard to put them below anyone else because this roster has won everything they've played so far. Joshua "steel" Nissan has turned into a solid long-term member it seems, and under Sam "DaZeD" Marine's leadership iBP have won two straight ESEA Finals events in 2014. Online no one has been able to touch them, as they've cruised through CEVO Pro Season 4 and the North American ESL One qualifier. In other words, iBUYPOWER look like they are in great shape, and we won't truly know just how good they are until after August.

Player Age Rating
United States Braxton "swag" Pierce 17 1.15
United States Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham 21 1.14
Canada Joshua "steel" Nissan 24 1.12
United States Sam "DaZeD" Marine 24 1.10
Canada Keven "AZK" Lariviere 23
1.06

The squad managed by Derrick "impulsivE" Truong will be traveling to Europe next week to attend G3 and will then bootcamp for nearly two weeks before ESL One. iBUYPOWER are doing a great job giving this team the right chances to succeed, and they have all the momentum and confidence on their side to continue playing well in London and Cologne. They have also kept a steady roster since the additions of swag and steel, and are starting to have enough chemistry and experience to go head-to-head with the best.

As was the case with Natus Vincere before DreamHack Summer, now iBUYPOWER have to prove they can win in Europe. Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham's Curse, which then later on became iBP, have a terrible record abroad. Of course only three players remain from the teams that bombed out of the group stages at the last two majors, but it's still a fact a mere two players on this team have ever scored big wins in Europe. iBP must do well at G3 and ESL One to hold onto this ranking - or to soar even higher on it - but they have a good chance of doing so.


DaZeD has turned iBP into clear number one team in North America 

 

6. Ukraine HellRaisers (+3

LAN results  Online results
3rd Spain DreamHack Valencia    
3-4th Sweden DreamHack Summer
5-8th Poland EMS One Katowice

HellRaisers seem to always fall short of what people consider their potential. Starting with a loss to Clan-Mystik at ESWC, followed by compLexity beating them at DreamHack Winter, and dignitas overcoming Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow and company in Katowice, they never seem to catch a break. They had a close loss against NiP at DreamHack Summer after taking down Titan in the group stage, and were beaten by Shoxilon in Valencia, just when it looked like they'd finally win a small title.

Online they've looked sharp in SLTV StarSeries X, where they boast an 8-1-1 record with wins over Titan, Epsilon, LDLC and ESG. Their only loss has come against Virtus.pro - whom they've always struggled against - and they tied fnatic. The fact they had so many close games in Valencia should worry any HellRaisers fan, as should the 0-16 loss to Epsilon. It seems the same issue plagues this team that we talked about months ago -- they do not have a suitable playing style or game plan to consistently beat top teams.

Player Age Rating
Russia Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov 26 1.09
Ukraine Yegor "markeloff" Markelov 26 1.07
Ukraine Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow 24 1.04
Ukraine Emil "kucher" Akhundov 25 1.01
Kazakhstan Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev 24 1.00

HR have been able to hold onto a steady roster since their decision to replace Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev with Emil "kUcheR" Akhundov last fall, but it's a little concerning they seem somewhat happy with their results. In our recent interview with Yegor "markeloff" Markelov, he stated they've won more money since the change and have no regrets, and sounded content with it all. Either HR don't realize it's largely thanks to the major events' prize purses, or they're flat out lying to themselves. HellRaisers aren't an elite team anymore, though they seemed like one last fall with Edward.

The second best team from the ex-Soviet countries can contend for titles and beat any team in a series, which is remarkable. It seems like they should snatch a title sometime in the future, yet they're too inconsistent to pull it off. It's impossible to rank HR's potential above LDLC's results, but they have still done more than all the teams below them on this ranking. 


ANGE1's HR keep falling short at tournaments 

 

5. France LDLC (+3)

3-4th Denmark Copenhagen Games 4th FACEIT Spring League
5-8th Poland EMS One Katowice  

LDLC have had a remarkably stable roster while nearly everyone on this list has made roster changes, and it's seemingly paying off. Though they missed out on DreamHack Summer, they had a good showing in Katowice, placed top four in Copenhagen and won in Valencia last weekend. It's not a bad resume, and it's trending upwards. It's possible LDLC prefers attending fewer events and being better prepared at them, seeing as they're also skipping G3, or their organization doesn't offer them the kind of support that made Dan "apEX" Madesclaire so excited when joining.

After terrible showings at DreamHack Winter and in Katowice it seems that Hovik "KQLY" Tovmassian has finally elevated his play, which is going to be key for LDLC moving forward. apEX is consistent, but the rest of the team - with maybe the exception of Vincent "Happy" Schopenhauer - don't offer that much help in the fragging department, which forces LDLC to rely heavily on teamwork and tactics when playing against teams with more firepower. However, that's a good thing over the long haul.

Player Age Rating
France Hovik "KQLY" Tovmassian 23 1.14
France Dan "apEX" Madesclaire 21 1.12
France Vincent "Happy" Cervoni 22 1.09
Switzerland Mathieu "Maniac" Quiquerez 24 0.96
France Kevin "Uzzziii" Vernel 24 0.94

Online LDLC have had varying results. Their fourth place finish in FACEIT Spring League was impressive, and a win over the new fnatic squad in Caseking of the Hill #1 isn't something to overlook. They were very close to beating Natus Vincere in the grand final, too. However, in SLTV StarSeries X they are 4-1-2 with zero wins over good teams, a draw versus ESG and losses to both fnatic and HellRaisers. In other words, it doesn't seem like this team is improving; they're steady where they belong.

For LDLC to climb higher on this list they would need a top four finish in Cologne, and even that might not be enough depending on how other teams perform. It almost seems as if they've capped out at top five, without too much upset potential against the teams above them. It's surprising to me they didn't try to recruit shox after he left Titan, but there's something to be said about keeping the same roster for so long. Look for LDLC to most likely fall a few places after Cologne, but they're a consistent top eight team in the world.


LDLC are a consistent top eight team 

 

4. Denmark dignitas (+1

LAN results Online results
3-4th Denmark Copenhagen Games 1st dignitas SCAN Invitational

dignitas are very consistent, yet also inactive. They've placed top four at their two last events, where practically every top team was, and were within a few rounds of cracking top four at DreamHack Winter as well. Since then it's been over three months and the Danes have not competed internationally. To make it worse for the Danes, they've also changed René "cajunb" Borg into Philip "aizy" Aistrup, who is significantly less experienced and hasn't yet proven himself at big tournaments like cajunb did.

Online Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth's team have been equally good. In FACEIT Spring League they placed second to Virtus.pro with wins over Virtus.pro, Titan, LDLC and fnatic, and they split their own SCAN tournament and Mikz Challenge with NiP. Finally taking down NiP in the SCAN Invitational was especially impressive, but the problem is they used Jacob "Pimp" Winneche as a stand-in - for their statistically best player Nicolai "device" Reedtz - thus making the result irrelevant.

Player Age Rating
Denmark Nicolai "device" Reedtz 18 1.15
Denmark Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen 21 1.13
Denmark Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth 18 1.07
Denmark Philip "aizy" Aistrup 18 1.02
Denmark Henrik "FeTiSh" Christensen 27 0.88

There will be plenty of pressure on dignitas to do well at G3 and ESL One Cologne, and since we haven't seen them play anything online in a while it's impossible to know what kind of shape they're in, or if they're properly prepared. To make it worse, they've always had massive struggles on the terrorist sides - which need more preparation in general - while relying on their individual skill to power them to double digit defensive half wins. Some of that skill was lost in cajunb, and they need to make up for it in other ways.

That being said, it would be impossible to rank dignitas lower than fourth. It's possible they could have beaten Virtus.pro, LDLC and LGB at their last two LAN events, but they had the bad luck of drawing NiP in the semi-finals. Their resume is stellar, and another top four finish at the next major in Cologne would likely send them into the top three. Their inactivity holds them back for now, which is why the next team on the list was able to sneak so high up so quickly.


Will dignitas remain consistent at G3 and ESL One?

Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko's team are the biggest climbers in this ranking, having gone up from a measly twelfth place all the way to the top three. After their failure in Katowice they elected to skip Copenhagen Games, but wound up proving Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács' statement right by taking down NiP and Titan en route to a championship at SLTV StarSeries IX Finals. Na`Vi then proved the naysayers wrong by finishing runners-up in Jönköping. Denis "seized" Kostin's development into a star will also help the team out in the future.

Unfortunately their showing at ESEA Finals was ruined by Arseny "ceh9" Trynozhenko having to replace Edward, whose passport was lost by the US embassy. They lost against NiP at IronGaming as well, but it's hard to take such a poorly organized event too seriously. Consider this - Na`Vi have only lost against NiP since their breakout performance in Kiev, excluding the irrelevant games played without one of their main stars in Dallas. Na`Vi are a strategic team, but that change crippled them too much to contend.

Russia Denis "seized" Kostin 19 1.08

Ukraine Sergey "starix" Ischuk 26 1.00

Online Na`Vi have been fairly inactive, but the wins over Titan and LDLC in Caseking of the Hill #1 were a nice added touch to their already strong resume. While most teams below Na`Vi struggle heavily in certain match-ups, they are one of the three teams who are realistically capable of beating anyone, while also fairly consistent in matches against weaker teams. Critics will point to the FlipSid3 match at DreamHack, but slip-ups can happen to anyone; as a whole Na`Vi are still not too prone to upset losses.

Top two finishes at SLTV StarSeries IX Finals and DreamHack Summer catapult Na`Vi to a top three placing just behind NiP and Virtus.pro. While they don't have enough results to put them above the world's best two teams just yet, they've proven over the past few months that they're the third best team around. They will be well prepared for ESL One - assuming they qualify this weekend - and have elected to skip G3. Expect Na`Vi to be a contender for ESL One, and a serious one at that.


Zeus' Na`Vi are a top three team

Though in our last ranking we weren't yet sure if Virtus.pro were a legitimate top tier team or possibly one event wonders, the results following their win in Katowice have certainly proven the former. The Poles finished second at Copenhagen Games to cement their spot in the top two in the world, and they also topped FACEIT Spring League online with wins over the likes of Titan and dignitas - no mean feat for a team that was used to struggling at home.

Virtus have cooled off since, finishing fourth at SLTV Finals - though only losing to Titan and NiP - and getting knocked out early at DreamHack Summer at the hands of Natus Vincere. In Dallas they placed third despite Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski arriving a day late and the schedule working against them. The losses to iBUYPOWER and compLexity were definitely weak results for Virtus, especially considering the manner they lost both games in. A win versus NiP shouldn't be overlooked, though.

Poland Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas 28 1.08
Poland Filip "Neo" Kubski 27 1.07
Poland Paweł "byali" Bieliński 20 1.07

The squad led by Filip "NEO" Kubski are facing some pressure going into G3 and ESL One Cologne, as they've racked up some weak results and must reinforce their place among the world's elite. More finishes outside of the top four - or being unable to make the grand final in either one - would likely end up with them on the outside looking in at the top two teams in the world. A key for them has been the performance of Jarosław "pashaBiceps" Jarząbkowski, who hasn't been playing at the level we saw from him earlier on in 2014.

Virtus have said multiple times that they've lacked proper practice since the bootcamp before EMS One, and this short vacation from Counter-Strike should allow them to get back into it re-energized. They are currently the world's second best team, but only by a hair over Na`Vi in terms of current form, and that could change quickly if they don't start performing better. The Poles must perform at both G3 and ESL One.

NiP remain the best team in the world in late July 2014. Though their showing at ESEA Invite Season 16 Global Finals was appalling by their standards, they've put together a strong year aside from the one-off falter in Dallas. They won Copenhagen Games shortly after our April ranking was released, placed top two at SLTV StarSeries IX Finals, and won both DreamHack Summer and IronGaming. It's hard to argue against such consistency.

It seems Robin "Fifflaren" Johansson was right in his Reflections interview - NiP figure teams out after losing to them once. They lost against Virtus in Katowice, but won in Copenhagen. Lost against Na`Vi in Kiev, but won in both Jönköping and Austin. The ESEA Finals placing is a big outlier in NiP's results - as a first time loss versus a poorly prepared compLexity squad should be - and they quickly bounced back with a win at IronGaming.

Player Age Rating
Sweden Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund 24 1.32
Sweden Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg 26 1.26
Sweden Richard "Xizt" Landström 23 1.14
Sweden Adam "friberg" Friberg 22 1.11
Sweden Robin "Fifflaren" Johansson 26 0.98

Online NiP haven't impressed, but they hardly do. They were knocked out of FACEIT Spring League early on, and split the other two online tournaments they took part in with dignitas, whom they've never lost against on LAN. The only questionable, and meaningful, result for NiP since the April ranking is their loss versus Virtus.pro in Dallas, which knocked them out of the event. That's a match NiP should have won, no matter how you look at it, yet they failed to pull through. Nevertheless, they remain number one.

The Ninjas go into the next two events - G3 and ESL One - as favorites, and it remains to be seen whether third time is the charm and they can bag a major win in Cologne. Anything less would be a disappointment, and a well rested NiP team has proven deadly in the past. Though in-game leader Richard "Xizt" Landström stated they are at a disadvantage with the new maps due to being on vacation, their individual skill should make up for any loss in coordination. Expect Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg and Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund to come out swinging.


GeT_RiGhT's NiP have more competitors for titles than ever before

 

HLTV.org July 2014 world ranking:

With G3 taking place next week and ESL One Cologne two weeks later, this ranking will surely see changes very soon. You can expect the next edition sometime in the fall.

Who do you think will soar or fall in the next ranking? Can a new team jump into the top twelve? Will we see a new champion at ESL One? The next months will give us the answers.

I think they are lucky to have the 9th place, imo.
2014-07-23 18:46
they would be lucky to even have 12th...
2014-07-23 19:00
dafuq? Titan was called "VeryGames" and that was a "CSS" clan. They are css players thats right but remember who they are. Its not just people. They are legends. Ex6TenZ, NBK and SmitchZz. They was ranked as 2nd. and they just fell down. I think they can come back. Ex6TenZ best IGL ever!
2014-07-29 14:06
Didn't they just win like 10 games in a row? They beat Navi, NiP, Epsilon and a couple others and some bad teams also in the qualifier seems weird they drop 7 spots when they're actually playing good and they were #2 in June when they were playing so bad... makes no sense.

mouz is not that german tho... i mean they have allu, Legija and ChrisJ who are not german 3 of 5 so, they are not really a german team imo.
2014-07-23 20:55
Well Legija is german
2014-07-23 21:52
Legija is Serbian but he lives in Germany I think?
2014-07-23 22:25
Yep, Legija is Serbian and he lives in Germany.
2014-07-26 13:20
Flipsid3 incoming next ranking too. You heard it here first.
2014-07-23 19:39
or maybe not... I feel they will disband after not making it to ESL One Euro qualifiers.
2014-07-24 04:11
lol
2014-07-24 05:56
I dont think they will disband. Pick ed up by an org, havin a solid röster. They just gotta practice
2014-07-29 12:09
I would actually like to see them stick with this roster, but one has to ask "for what"? Maybe they could get an invite to a faceit cup or some small online tournament, but there aren't any medium/large LAN tournaments coming up in the near future (afaik) that they can participate in.
2014-07-29 12:14
I was close with my prediction on some post, but this is most realistic top 12

VP are 2nd because of their major event, next big event will probably give either team the lead whoever wins. If Na`Vi places better then VP they go 2nd, if it's the opposite, VP keeps their spot.

but for 1 major?
2014-07-23 22:23
i think the both teams are at one level, but with minimal "+" for VP due to winning major. We'll se after G3 and ESL Cologne ;)
2014-07-24 11:55

i don't see the significance of their age for a world ranking article.
2014-07-23 18:35
so you follow the cs scene since when then ?
2014-07-23 18:44
start of 2014
2014-07-23 19:07
thats why u dont know the importance of the ages in the rank
2014-07-23 19:10
ive been following cs since 2000 and i don't see how it is significant? Please explain?
2014-07-24 00:16
to see the average of the years between the players, to see what player is more experienced, what player is more younger... theres a lot of things
2014-07-24 17:14
how is that important to there performance in cs? It would be if they were 35+ sure.. but anything under that age means nothing we are all the same in that perspective. Age is insignificant.

u can realize the experience of one team by the average of their ages... isnt a rule, theres some exceptions...
2014-07-25 22:49
Like what? They aren't running, lifting, they use eyes and hands..
2014-07-26 01:17
but experience counts, with experience, more in-game knowledge... do u know what experience means ?
2014-07-26 01:45
How does experience count in cs? LOL 3years playing can = 10 years.. This is CS.GO dude it's a completely new game. Fucking dumb Brazilians. You should understand by losing 7-1 in the world cup then 3-0 that experience doesn't really matter :) It comes down to raw talent and who is better with team work, you saying that playing cs for 10+ years makes you a better player then someone who has played for 3-4.. Then you are clueless.
2014-07-26 04:28
im talking about COUNTER-STRIKE and u just start to say about soccer, who's fucking dumb here ?? -.-' and did u even saw what i wrote ? "u can realize the experience of one team by the average of their ages... isnt a rule, theres some exceptions..." READ THIS AGAIN PLEASE, IDIOT SWEDISH
2014-07-26 04:40
doesn't have to be significant for some fans to be interested in it. it also gives you an idea of which players are more likely to have more room for development, who might retire soon, etc.
2014-07-24 08:07
In cs there is no age for retirement though? Players have retired and come back through out cs history at every age.. Counter strike is an out luck hobby for a professional 0.005 percent of gamers play this for a living and when they have something more to go for in life they retire, if not they stay until they get bad enough not to play anymore. Age is the most pointless factor in gaming. It means nothing.
2014-07-25 14:46
sure, there is no definitive age for retirement in cs, but it's clear most people tend to start shifting towards other priorities in life as they get older. also, as i said, it tells you who is still young and will likely continue growing as a player. you know who someone is who has played for +5 years and is 25; you don't know what swag can still become, seeing as he's only 17.

2014-07-23 19:18
just because they have 2 legends from 1.6 DOSIA and MARKELOFF... just for that. like a team they are realy crap xD
2014-07-24 03:10
Great article lurppis! I think LDLC will be really dangerous at G3
2014-07-23 19:18
I kinda agree with everything you said with one exception is iBP. I think everyone is under estimating what these guys are capable of, they might have not played so many europeans at ESEA lan but you should remember with a weaker lineup they completely destroyed titan and with this lineup they destroyed VP, Titan was #2 at the time and VP is #2 now. Both teams iBP defeated to win the LAN had beaten NiP. I'm not saying this means iBP > NiP but it should mean that they would have a chance at least. + European teams have an advantage when they play in home why does it when american teams have the same advantage its an excuse for europeans to under perform. - The only team with an excuse in that tournament might have been Na'Vi.
2014-07-23 19:18
over here at hltv.org we rank teams based on their results, not their potential.
2014-07-23 19:30
I wasn't talking about potential. They won ESEA Lan. Yet there are teams right above them with nothing but top4 finishes.
2014-07-23 20:57
yes, top four finishes at big events with lots of prestige, prize money and good teams. last esea finals had two top european teams (with snax arriving a day late due to family tragedy), and one who was playing without a key member. you're not really comparing the two, are you?
2014-07-23 21:00
As i mentioned above, i'm not comparing VP/NiP vs iBP. It's your opinion and you obviously have more knowledge regarding these stuff and you have a system.
2014-07-23 21:20
tbh, ESEA lan seemed to be as legit as the poker game over at Harry's in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels
2014-07-23 21:14
Nah. Na'Vi has done well in a few tournaments this year, but there are soooo many other teams wich has done better. Yes Na'Vi are on fire, but it seems like you're just looking what has been happening the past 2 months.
2014-07-26 23:36
why don't you list those "many teams" then? :) obviously the most recent results are the most important.
2014-07-27 10:06
True but I would've still waited untill after ESL One Cologne. I do not disagree with this list, but I feel like when ESL One Cologne is right around the corner you should've waited, imo.
2014-07-27 12:36
"European teams have an advantage when they play in home" Europe isn't a country. A French guy playing in Germany won't have any home field advantage, neither will a Swedish guy playing in France. You have to be American to even make that argument. "I'm not saying this means iBP > NiP but it should mean that they would have a chance at least." And that's why they gained +4 ranks, because they have shown some results, but not enough to rise higher. Hell, lurppis even writes that in the article. >'In other words, iBUYPOWER look like they are in great shape, and we won't truly know just how good they are until after August.'
2014-07-23 19:34
I didn't say Europe was a country but surely people traveling 4-6hrs or less have more advantage than people traveling over 12hrs. I read what lurppis wrote but that doesn't suit a team that won a lan.
2014-07-23 21:12
Europeans never bootcamp in NA against opponents that play the typical US playstyle. Also almost everytime they suffer from jetlag. The jetlag stuff is present for the american teams as well, the difference is that alomst everytime before a major they chose to bootcamp in EU to adapt to both timezone changes and playstyle. :)
2014-07-23 20:04
NAVI (+9) WOW
2014-07-23 19:21
this list is a joke. iBP is easily top 5. LDLC and Hellraisers are above them? LOL.
2014-07-23 19:22
+1 coL should also easily be above hellraisers, probably LDLC too
2014-07-23 19:27
let's hear you argue that point. why do they deserve to be above those two teams?

HR are too inconsistent to be considered a team that high up. Also, it's not nice to call OverGaming weak
2014-07-23 19:34
its an article, its about facts, the fact is that they're weak
2014-07-23 20:39
5-8th at EMS, 3-4th at DH Summer, 3rd DH Valencia - not very inconsistent to me. They've only lost against dignitas, NiP and LDLC, all of whom are above them in the ranking. OverGaming are weak compared to these teams.
2014-07-24 08:16
until iBP proves something in Europe, they won't be a top5 squad.
2014-07-23 19:32
iBP > VP iBP > coL (who shat on every euro) location doesnt matter.
2014-07-23 19:44
U must be fucking joking.. They just won ESEA in MURICA, they won't pass group-stage again at ESL.
2014-07-23 19:46
How does the location even matter? You sit in a "chair", playing with your own mouse/keyboard/headset. They performed insanely well, judging how they played, they deserve that spot. Even tho they won the "INTERNATIONAL" lan and won the "EUROPEAN" teams.
2014-07-23 20:24
for example vp was playing 20h without any break at ESEA that's the point they didn't won that tournament.
2014-07-23 22:11
+1. Both Col and iBP always underachieve in europe.
2014-07-23 19:46
no, not coL
2014-07-23 20:20
coL have played decent in both majors so far. 3-4th at DH Winter 5-8th at EMS One Katowice
2014-07-23 20:34
With their team they should be around 1-4th on events. And sorry forgot about dh winter lolol
2014-07-23 20:38
why should they be 1-4th? they've never proven they can beat the very best in bo3s before this last esea lan, and they even made top four at dreamhack winter.
2014-07-24 08:05
"+1. Both Col and iBP always underachieve in europe. " I feel that Col underachieve. Simple as that really? You might disagree but thats my opinion
2014-07-24 15:46
DH winter isn't listed above anyways, so that tournament doesn't matter
2014-07-23 20:42
iBP have exactly beaten 1 European team in a close match. While most do agree that they have potential to compete among the best five teams, it would be ridiculous to go off of that and say they are already one of the world's best teams. As for coL generally, one could have said that they are TOP5 before the changes. But even that would be arguable in the sense that most people only look at specific results to rank them. They had a rough online season and nearly didn't make ESEA. They lost big in CEVO and SoCal. Just saying "we are a LAN team" does not mean the online results do not play a role in determining how good a team is. And just because they tend to do well against European teams does not mean being mediocre nationally is "fine". Bad results are still bad results. coL now however is a completely new and mostly unproven lineup. Ranking them as high is a tribute to their past results, the current coL can effectively not be ranked.

2014-07-23 19:30
Hellraisers top6? The last time they beat a top5 team in a bo3 on lan, they were still called astana dragons. I would put them behind the americans for sure.
2014-07-23 19:37
I would rank iBP higher than them just because they placed first at a LAN tournament while HR aren't even thinking about doing that
2014-07-23 20:23
Titan should be 12. Really.

I agree with the top 4 (even though dignitas has been out of action for a bit). I think IBP and Col should be switched with HR and LDLC, though.
2014-07-23 20:05
nip in top 2 since game is released!

2014-07-23 21:44
Nicely done lurppis, ver interesting read. The ranking matches intuition as well. Just for hahas - what would be your potential driven ranking? Alternatively it would be interesting to sum it up with predicting the next ranking to reflect "potential". My "potential" ranking: 1. NiP 2. iBP 3. Dignitas 4. Navi/Virtus Pro
2014-07-23 22:05
Didn't iBP get raped last time they played in EU lol? or at least they didn't do much
2014-07-23 22:27
When was it 6 months ago? This rank is meant to look forward. They have skilled young players and they looked pretty convincing in ESEA. Of course teams flying overseas will always be disadvantaged due to jet lag and fatigue. We will not see until there is a tournament held on "neutral" ground like Asia maybe ;). Top level competition between continents would give a nice touch to the game I think.

i think it's pointless to try guessing too much, but i'll give you a few thoughts: - dignitas is not going to make top four at g3 or esl one due to having been so inactive all summer - fnatic will do well enough to climb a few spots - ldlc will drop out of top five - titan will gain a few places - esg will move
2014-07-24 08:28
how about epsilon. Theyre still on their honeymoon. Might do a few upsets, like fnatic did last fall/winter.
2014-07-24 10:38
i knew i forgot a team on this list, i replied to a similar question on reddit where i included epsilon. they seem especially likely to move up because fxy0 seems promising (which means they now have lots more individual skill), and because they're attending both g3 and esl one (assuming they qualify).

I really do believe Dignitas is better than Na'Vi but rightfully so they are ranked under Na'Vi because of their absence. I expect Flipsid3 and CPH Wolves to make it up here assuming they don't disband after 1 event.

LDLC > VP

Great write-up, but your ranking system is still too opaque for my liking. If it's going to be the official system used in tournaments, it should be a mechanical formula that anyone can calculate at home if they feel so inclined. The value added by each ranking update should be your interpretation/discussion of the results, not the results themselves. That way there would be less room for your own biases (right now, it looks very much like you overestimated Titan's standing in the last ranking and are underestimating it now to compensate), and everyone could offer criticism and suggest improvements to your methods. As it stands, it's impossible to argue with the final list as we don't have any idea how you weighed the various factors that went in to it.

The tournament structure in CS:GO would force us to set arbitrary importance numbers for events regardless (based on prize money, number of top teams attending, etc.) which would still make it subjective -- a ranking without those on the other hand would simply suck, because events aren't equal. We simply look at the ranking differently. To me it's more appealing to see someone's ranking and then read arguments for it, and decide whether i agree or not. Explaining the results of an ELO ranking could be done by just listing the recent tournament finishes for each team, and important match results. I disagree with how you perceive us placing Titan. By the time of the previous ranking they still had shox and looked to be in a slight slump, but there was no way to know they wouldn't bounce back. Just as easily it could have been Virtus who disappeared after EMS One, and Titan who placed top two in Copenhagen. This ranking isn't based on what will happen next, but what has already happened. You're free to argue the list, but we're not really looking for that -- we've put plenty of thought into it and I don't see an argument that'd change our minds after going through all the results, matches, etc. We weigh tournament finishes, who teams beat in them, how easy their bracket was, other factors, etc. Ceteris paribus online matters, too. Put it this way - tournaments can either use our ranking for seeding, or they can use random draw from pools. Even if we're off by a placing or two with some teams, it's still less than the average draw will be wrong when done from seeding pools.

Titan :(
2014-07-24 09:54
worst ranking i have ever seen. NaVi top3? xD fnatic 11?! weedppis
2014-07-24 09:59
also, hellraisers are scrub
2014-07-24 10:14
was there ever any news thread about sgares quitting? why is he no longer on the player list?
2014-07-24 10:24
Why do the ranking now? Why not wait until the end of August? There would be a lot more input then. This ranking will be obsolete by then.
2014-07-24 11:39
plenty of reasons. it's a lot more fun now that it's not obvious where every team is placed, it gives newer fans an idea of what to expect from teams at g3 and esl one, and it gives casters something to reference to when talking about these teams during those events -- just to name a few.
2014-07-25 08:19
I was close with my prediction on some post, but this is most realistic top 12
2014-07-24 11:43
NiP first :(((
2014-07-24 11:52
Lurppis, Kyiv is the capital of Ukraine, not Kiev.
2014-07-24 14:39
It's known as Kiev in the English speaking world.
2014-07-24 17:20
This is a mistake. Kyiv - if you translate from Ukrainian Kiev - from Russian
2014-07-24 19:25
wikipedia (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kiev) suggests both are acceptable and the english speaking world uses kiev much more often
2014-07-25 08:18
English speaking world lives in the past. businessinsider.com/kiev-or-kyiv-2014-1 - pls check this!

Interesting read. I had no idea "The Ukraine" was frowned upon, I'll use "Ukraine" from now on

2014-07-24 23:57
is this complexitiy lineup right ? seangares not in the team anymore ?
2014-07-24 18:29
i noticed the same thing too. Reading the part about coL reveals that they have not made an official statement regarding new line-up. However, i believe this is their "online" line-up as of now. word on the street was that -sgares was about to happen. Can't say im suprised with the addition of Dboorn and shroud. Looking forward to see 'em play!
2014-07-24 21:34
-seangares only because he is going to focus on his career after his contract ends with Complexity. If it wasn't for that, then it only would have been -anger.
