Team Ranking: October 2015

We have updated our global team rankings following action at CS:GO's latest major in DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca as well as for the month of October at large.

HLTV.org introduced our new and definite global team rankings system on the first of October, 2015.

Our official rankings scientist Julien "topeiko" Hottias has just updated the rankings, and since it takes place after this past weekend's major at DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca, many definitive changes are to be found in the rankings.

Once again, the 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 ten offline events.


A new number one team emerges 

All of that is predicated around a three-man core each team is required to have in order to retain their past points. Online matches and tournaments are included, but with a diminishing factor which means they cannot make a big difference among the top teams, and mainly serve to put new teams on the map.

We will always have a special page where you will be able to find the latest version of our ranking (which is sometimes updated on a weekly basis if the events scene is busy).

Here is the current top 20 table as of November 3rd, 2015, which goes more in-depth into the way points are distributed.

We'll now quickly take a look at the top fifteen teams and how they recently fared, especially in regards to our flagship takeover in the form of EnVyUs becoming the highest ranked team in the world.

1. France EnVyUs

Player Age Rating
France Vincent "Happy" Schopenhauer 23 1.14
France Kenny "kennyS" Schrub 20 1.11
France Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt 21 1.07
France Dan "apEX" Madesclaire 22 1.06
France Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey 21 1.02

Following two offline event wins in September (DH Open London and Gfinity Champions), EnVyUs followed up by winning DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca in a convincing and masterful fashion and are now number one. In a way, taking first place following this result was a fait accompli for the French five.


nV's risk with dispensing of shox's services paid off

EnVyUs are still slightly behind fnatic in long term achievements (summer's slump hurt them here as well as a lineup change that retained only 3/5 players from the old nV team) and a little behind TSM in terms of form following the Danes' 25-map win streak, however the overall impression is that nV have conclusively knocked fnatic off of their perch as well as edging out TSM, who underwhelmed at Cluj.

2. Denmark TSM

Player Age Rating
Denmark Nicolai "device" Reedtz 20 1.19
Denmark Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen 22 1.09
Denmark René "cajunb" Borg 25 1.08
Denmark Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth 20 1.06
Denmark Finn "karrigan" Andersen 25 0.98

Winning PGL Season 1 finals was a statement of strength, and dominating online regular season games was a show of good form, but Team SoloMid really had to win this major to retain that first place spot (which they quietly gained in the middle of October due to stellar form) and convince the world they were the best.


TSM live on to fight another day

Unfortunately for TSM, that did not happen as karrigan and his boys disappeared in the quarter-finals against NiP, a performance which hearkened back to the dismal Danish days of 2014 at majors.

Although TSM retain a slight lead in form as well, points decay will soon kick in and could see nV take a lead there as well. IEM San Jose will be the next chance to set the record straight for these top two contendeers.

3. Sweden fnatic

Player Age Rating
Sweden Robin "flusha" Rönnquist 22 1.15
Sweden Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer 23 1.10
Sweden Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson 21 1.09
Sweden Jesper "JW" Wecksell 20 1.00
Sweden Markus "pronax" Wallsten 24 0.87

fnatic's dominance in 2015 keeps the Swedish team floating face up for now, but October has been a shaky month for the team in all senses of the word. A third place finish at PGL Season 1 now seems like a relief compred to Cluj, where nV trumped fnatic 2-1 in the quarter-finals and the previous major winners went home in 5-8th place.


Troubling times lie ahead for the Swedes, if recent results are anything to go by

And the largest hit to fnatic's points has therefore been the gap between last major's performance in Cologne and the recent major in Cluj. This fact is due to the fact that majors carry tremendous weight.

However, the glaring fact still stands that fnatic have not won an event since ESL One Cologne which happened almost three months ago. With no confirmed event attendance in November (although fnatic will likely qualify for the FACEIT Stage 3 finals), this fact should pose an issue although for now fnatic still hold the most achievement points.

4. Poland Virtus.pro

Player Age Rating
Poland Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski 22 1.08
Poland Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas 29 1.03
Poland Paweł "byali" Bieliński 21 1.00
Poland Filip "NEO" Kubski 28 0.97
Poland Jarosław "pashaBiceps" Jarząbkowski 27 0.94

A win at the Crown's Invitational coupled with a second place finish at PGL Season 1 were promising results for the Poles and showed that they were suddenly fighting with a previously unseen consistency in all their offline tournaments.


Virtus.pro can still contend for top three

Despite an unforseen defeat to G2 in the quarter-finals of DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca, with the pan-European team playing out of their minds, VP retain the fourth place spot quite comfortably ahead of teams below them.

This coming weekend's action at CEVO Season 8 will be a test for this ranking, especially with the fifth ranked team, Na`Vi, also attending.

5. CIS Natus Vincere

Player Age Rating
Slovakia Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács 24 1.22
Russia Egor "flamie" Vasilyev 18 1.05
Russia Denis "seized" Kostin 21 1.03
Ukraine Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev 27 0.99
Ukraine Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko 28 0.92

After months of disappointing results, Na`Vi made an extremely deep playoff run at the Cluj major and reached their first major grand final ever.


Fortune favours the bearded, as Na`Vi have found

Not only does this result allow the team to breach the top five, the Eastern European team's defeat of NiP in the semifinals now widens the gap between the two (with NiP sitting at sixth place) and allows Na`Vi to begin to gun for the top four.

This coming weekend's CEVO Season 8 finals will therefore be extremely important for Zeus and crew.

6. Sweden NiP

Player Age Rating
Sweden Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg 27 1.09
Sweden Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund 25 1.07
Finland Aleksi "allu" Jalli 23 1.06
Sweden Richard "Xizt" Landström 24 1.02
Sweden Adam "friberg" Friberg 24 0.89

NiP have dropped into sixth place, but a semifinals major run and convincing wins over Titan and TSM provided much needed points for a team many had classified as dead on arrival and kept them from falling further.


The Ninjas kept it one hundred in Cluj

Losing to Na`Vi pretty convincingly killed any chances of a Cinderella run into the finals, but the team can rest easy throughout November with this sort of result.

Although they won't be attending the CEVO finals, the Ninjas will be put to the test in San Jose later this month (as will many teams in our top ten aside from fnatic, G2, and possibly CLG).

7. Europe G2

Player Age Rating
Norway Joakim "jkaem" Myrbostad 21 1.10
Norway Håvard "rain" Nygaard 21 1.10
Sweden Dennis "dennis" Edman 24 1.06
Portugal Ricardo "fox" Pacheco 29 0.99
Sweden Mikail "Maikelele" Bill 24 0.98

G2 gain a spot at the expense of Cloud9 and continue an onwards march following a miraculous semifinals run at DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca that continues to defy those who thought the team's inherent composition was unstable.


Points-elele

G2 are now poised to continue the long grind to top five, and they will be aided by the fact that this somewhat newly formed team will not encounter much points decay.

However, November will be somewhat quiet for this pan-European team as they missed out on attending CEVO Season 8 finals despite having an opportunity to attend although G2 still have a strong chance of qualifying for the FACEIT Stage 3 finals at DreamHack Winter that will take place at the end of November.

8. United States Cloud9

Player Age Rating
United States Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham 22 1.10
Canada Mike "shroud" Grzesiek 21 1.08
United States Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert 25 1.00
United States Sean "seang@res" Gares 27 0.96
United States Ryan "freakazoid" Abadir 22 0.93

The huge bonus accumulated by the North American team over the summer is now in a freefall, and disappointing placings at the Crown's Invitational (losing to Immunity) as well as failing to make it out of groups yet again in Cluj are a worrying sign for n0thing & co.


Like a hamburger advertisement, the reality is far from the appearance

Unlike European teams, Cloud9 will have have an extremely packed November however and could stand to benefit as a result. Despite not competing in CEVO Season 8, seang@res and his men will attend the iBP cup, the RGN Pro Series LAN, IEM San Jose, and are likely to be one of the two North American teams to qualify for FACEIT S3 at DreamHack Winter.

9. Brazil Luminosity

Player Age Rating
Brazil Marcelo "coldzera" David 21 1.16
Brazil Fernando "fer" Alvarenga 24 1.11
Brazil Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo 24 1.10
Brazil Ricardo "boltz" Prass 18 1.04
Brazil Lucas "steel" Lopes 21 0.93

Luminosity gain three spots and rocket into our top ten due to a third consecutive successful run into the playoffs of a CS:GO major. Managing to defeat both Cloud9 and fnatic to take top seed of their group was a feat in and of itself, even if a dominant Na`Vi spoiled the dream of a semifinals finish for FalleN and his men.


Putting South America on the map one major at a time

The team have one of the busiest November calendars around, starting with CEVO Season 8 this coming weekend and with offline events virtually every weekend after that. This pace could be a blessing or a curse; only time will tell.

10. United States CLG

Player Age Rating
United States Josh "jdm64" Marzano 25 1.15
United States Tarik "tarik" Celik 19 1.11
United States James "hazed" Cobb 26 1.04
United States Stephen "reltuC" Cutler 26 0.99
Canada Pujan "FNS" Mehta 23 0.97

Although not as red-hot as their South American counter-parts, CLG have played consistent Counter-Strike for a second tier team and, following a much needed win at the WinOut Championships in September, they break the top ten following a strong performance at the major.

 


Three teams from the Americas are now in the top ten

While it's true that CLG did not make it out of groups, they defeated dignitas in the losers' match of Group D and dueled Na`Vi in a best-of-one and then a best-of-three with potential for both series to have gone the North American team's way.

Like the other North American teams on this list, November will provide ample opportunity to farm points if the results are promising due to four upcoming events on American soil.

11. France Titan

Player Age Rating
Belgium Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom 21 1.09
France Richard "shox" Papillon 23 1.08
France Cédric "RpK" Guipouy 26 0.98
Belgium Kévin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans 25 0.97
France Edouard "SmithZz" Dubourdeaux 26 0.96

Titan make the second biggest gain in our Top 20 ranking and fall just short of a top ten finish, which could very well have been achieved if the team had not crumbled to NiP in the Group C decider match.

ScreaM and co. were no match for Virtus.pro but they proved they can battle with NiP, or at least that was the case in the opening match. Once again however, the Titanfall was hardest when it mattered and the team sit out of the top ten.

Titan will be attending CEVO Season 8 finals which is a huge plus for the French-Belgian team as later on they will not attend IEM San Jose and will not qualify for FACEIT S3 at DreamHack Winter with a 2-8 record in the regular season.

12. Denmark dignitas

Player Age Rating
Denmark Philip "aizy" Aistrup 19 1.18
Denmark Jacob "Pimp" Winneche 20 1.07
Denmark Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye 17 1.04
Denmark Jesper "TENZKI" Plougmann 21 1.00
Denmark Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen 20 0.93

dignitas' exchange of Andreas "znajder" Lindberg for TENZKI following a successful qualification for the major was but a pipe dream as the team flopped in Cluj, losing to both EnVyUs and CLG.

dignitas will quietly attend CEVO Season 8 finals and attempt to stand out among the other seven teams there. A good result would be a much needed salve to a disappointing October for the Danes.

13. Germany mousesports

Player Age Rating
Bosnia and Herzegovina Nikola "NiKo" Kovač 18 1.15
Germany Johannes "nex" Maget 23 1.11
Netherlands Chris "chrisJ" de Jong 25 1.05
Germany Denis "denis" Howell 21 0.92
Germany Fatih "gob b" Dayik 28 0.80

Much like dignitas above them, mousesports are in a freefall following a failed attempt to exit groups in Cluj. The team did manage to beat FlipSid3 and take a map off of G2, but this was ultimately not enough.

Like the four teams ranked above them, mouz stand to gain from this weekend's CEVO Season 8 finals, assuming that gob b can repeat the solid 3-4th finish that the team achieved at the CEVO Season 7 finals.

14. United States Liquid

Player Age Rating
United States Nick "nitr0" Cannella 20 1.16
United States Spencer "Hiko" Martin 25 1.14
United States Jacob "FugLy" Medina 20 1.08
United States Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski 18 1.07
United States Eric "adreN" Hoag 25 1.04

Many claimed that Liquid were the best North American team of the three in attendance at Cluj following a dominant run in online matches and a fourth place finish at PGL Season 1 (admittedly last place in a four team event, but with a map win taken off of fnatic and a closely played de_overpass against VP).

Following an overtime thriller against Virtus.pro in the Cluj major, Hiko and his men could not find that form within them to defeat NiP and exited the groups. Liquid will have a busy November and attend CEVO Season 8, iBP Cup, RGN Pro Series, possibly IEM San Jose, and possibly DreamHack Winter.

15. Ukraine FlipSid3

Player Age Rating
Russia Georgi "WorldEdit" Yaskin 24 1.15
Ukraine Vladyslav "bondik" Nechyporchuk 22 1.12
Ukraine Yegor "markeloff" Markelov 27 0.99
Russia Vadim "DavCost" Vasilyev 19 0.93
Ukraine Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy 28 0.88

FlipSid3 drop two spots in our ranking, and are now floating with enough points to stay quite separate from 16th place but with no planned events in the near future.

As a result, markeloff and co. are a sort of gatekeeper team, and ambitious young teams below them should aspire to attend events and try and eclipse the stagnant Eastern European team before they return to form.

 

We have also updated our graph showing the evolution of teams' points throughout 2015.

You can also see which teams round up the Top 20 over at our dedicated Team ranking page (which will be updated tomorrow due to technical issues), and we still plan to expand the list over time to incorporate more teams as events continue to proliferate in CS:GO.

November will certainly be a busy month, with four events in North America and one in Sweden at the month's end, and you can certainly expect some changes by the next time we post a feature article to explain new rankings in early December.

yes, they haven't deserved much other than beating fnatic in a bo1 ... and c9 (wow Kappa), clg did the same months back where was the uproar?
2015-11-03 20:53
The hilarious part is if cold didn't hard carry vs C9, they would've lost, even though C9 is slumping right now. But HLTV and fanboys of LG will say something different lol.

You're a blind fanboy. They've been shit for years, get good for a short while, and now they're back to being shit. Open your eyes.
2015-11-03 22:22
I'm not even a fanboy LOL, it's called facts, idiot. You are beyond dumb if you believe this is anywhere near their "normal" level. You can see it in their games, everything is down a couple levels on both shroud and ska, n0thing is roughly the same. Come back to me when you have something else to say outside of "blind fanboy," when I was stating a fact. LG has done NOTHING but win BO1's. Tell me when they win a series vs a top team.
2015-11-03 22:27
Reading your other comments just shows how big a waste of time it would be to discuss with someone like you. You will ignore whatever the other person says and go rant about irrelevant things... Not once did I say anything about LG. I'm saying Clown9 was bad, then played with the big boys for a short while and now they're back to being bad. /close
2015-11-04 00:01
Considering my OP was talking about LG, yeah...I never said you said anything about them, did I? purely stating facts. They were BAD with semphis and shah, if you can't see they're in a slump then you're stupid, there's literally no way around it. I don't ignore ANYTHING people say, I call them out on being idiots and fanboying hardcore. I state facts, and the FACT IS (everyone at the major, analyst's, casters, and even players know that) C9 is slumping.
2015-11-04 01:44
Just stop, youre retarded :<
2015-11-04 07:41
"shit for years" the c9 roster has been together for a few months if you're talking about the core of the team going back to old c9 / coL then they have two top8 and a top4 major finishes under their belt, and runner up at ESEA S16 Lan where they beat VP, NiP, and NaVi in bo3 series consecutively either sensible interpretation of your shitpost reveals it to be nonsense the only blind retard here is you, child
2015-11-04 00:43
It's incredible how people can hate a team so much, yes they were shit with semphis/shah, nobody can dispute that....but this? it's an obvious slump, even sean mentions it. You know your team is in a slump when your IGL (not talking about Happy here...) does better than your two stars and semi-star pretty much all tournament long, especially in the important BO3.
2015-11-04 01:46
this site is filled with eurotrash teenagers who will hate anything american purely out of edginess and spite it's quaint because of how rarely anyone on this continent even thinks about their countries
2015-11-04 02:51
Wow, what a waste of my time that was. Get outta here muricunt, no one likes you and your biased opinions, which is why you have to team up with the other american. If you actually read my comments you would know that I'm not going to throw my time out the window replying to the other guy, and you've just proven to be on his level, so cya never.
2015-11-04 19:15
The hilarious part is if skadoodle didn't hard carry vs everyone, they would not even be top 20, even though shroud can carry there and here. But HLTV and fanboys of cloud 9 will say something different lol.
2015-11-04 17:37
It was both shroud and ska when they were playing good and not in a slump....idiot.
2015-11-04 18:07
yeah im saying that skadoodle and sometimes shroud both carried them to c9's top 10 while coldzera only carried them in literally a one bo1
2015-11-04 18:55
na is just having a slump oh wait
2015-11-04 18:36
The only thing hilarious here is your hilariously terrible understanding of how this ranking works. It's based on statistics, which means that purely non-mathematical aspects ("if this hadn't happened, then..." in your case "if coldzera hadn't carried, then...") does not, can not, and should not have an impact on the rankings.

considering they were #15th before the major, they gained quite a bit. c9 is falling anyway, sooner or later LG will pass them if they keep up with their current form.

both are correct :P i compared them to last weeks ranking, stich compared them to last months ranking. last month they were #12, but since then they dropped to #15 a week ago. from this major they gained 6 spots, but overall this month they gained 3 :D
2015-11-03 21:48
Thanks, was having a hard time understanding that math haha
2015-11-03 22:39
All they've managed to do was beat teams in BO1's, when they can beat top teams in BO3's they'll move up.

2015-11-03 21:24
I don't catch any being sad or salty. He's just saying the truth. That is all they did.
2015-11-03 22:07
Damn, I was typing a big block of text here and realized u muricas will never accept it, no matter how good a rank is. So yeah, have it your way, C9 is still among the best in the world and LG is just a T2-T3 team who sometimes upset some bigger teams. There, feeling betta?
2015-11-03 22:15
I'll "accept it" when they can win a series, if they didn't have cold hard carrying vs the slumping C9, they wouldn't lost, plain and simple. All LG has done was win BO1's, when you can come back with something other "lol salty tears" I'll read all of it.
2015-11-03 22:25
I won't, got better things to do than teaching reality.
2015-11-03 22:26
There is no "won't," it's "can't," which is hilarious. All they can do is upset in BO1's, come back when they beat a top team in a BO3.

2015-11-03 21:37

2015-11-03 22:38
The points system has been explained and yes they're only good for number 9. The "other" teams that you're questioning are just riding on their past achievements and those points decay as days go by so they'd probably start dipping more in the standings and if LG can keep this up they'll go up. People gotta start looking at things objectively.

Previous iterations of HLTV's rankings has been laughably inaccurate (not so much as ESL's, but that isn't hard). This one seems to be on the money for the most part though, but I wouldn't want to put my faith in it as a unanimous ranking.

i think you found the previous versions inaccurate because you look at the rankings only rather than the points. you have to look at the points to see where teams stand compared to each other rather than the ranking which can be deceiving, when 4 teams are 6 points away from one another like titan liquid mouz and dignitas are right now for example. tldr - this ranking is about the points, not the placings.

See this is why I personally believe points based rankings are massively flawed. It becomes too much about the math, rather than common sense, and it can skew in favour of some teams. For example in the rankings released 2 weeks ago, nV were ranked 4th. Regardless of if they were one point away from third and two away from second, they should never have been ranked at 4th based on their plethora of recent achievements (before the major). Some of the bottom end of the ranking is a little silly too, I remember before Liquid even had that decent showing taking a map off fnatic at PGL(?) they were ranked far too high for their achievements, and the response I got was that they had a run of good form online recently. Another thing I hugely disagree with when it comes to ranking is putting stock into online results. In Liquids case, they face a far weaker field in NA compared to the t2 teams in EU for example, and online form rarely gives an indication of how a team will perform on lan in general if we go back through most teams in history.
2015-11-04 08:41
Liquid had a good "form" ranking with their online matches but the achievements came from PGL, ESWC or some other LANs were they qualified and took some maps to big teams. The force of the opponent is important to determine the form, if you look at the Liquid streak it was almost the same than TSM's one, but in term of score I think TSM was at 250 and Liquid barely at 100 And last, EnVy should have been better than 4th before the Major, the problem was their roster changes, thats was not that much points but as other teams was pretty consistent (every top 3 team had a moment of glory) EnVy weren't able to make enough achievements points in the 2-3 months of their new team

envy were 4th not because they were less impressive than 3 other teams, but because they were basically a new team - having changed 2 players. they would almost certainly be ranked #1 a month ago if not for the lack of total results due to the lineup being almost new - since it only retained 60% of the points of the previous lineup. liquid were top12 at best, and that was when titan changed a third player in like 1 month - losing yet more points. below titan and liquid there wasnt really too many teams of note, and the teams ranked 8-13 were all within 20 points of each other iirc which can change very quickly based on 1 good or 1 bad result - as G2 has shown us this major. the online results barely count for anything in this ranking, and doing well solely based on online results is impossible - as efrag have been demonstrating to us. (pls efrag attend some more lan T_T). grinding online in NA is especially difficult, people seem to think liquid has it easy but they really dont. over a period of 2 weeks before the major liquid went 19-2 online and titan went 9-11 online, yet titan got more points - which really did shock me but it made me realize just how much more points you get from playing against teams who are relevant compared to tier3 NA teams. dont overestimate the online results - in total online counts to around 10% of a teams points, meaning if team B did 80% as good as team A online, and both had 200 points, then team A will have 220 points and team B will have 216 - its essentially meaningless. again, the ranking of a team only tells half the story, you should pay attention to the points more. a mathematical ranking is the only way to have your ranking be as unbiased as possible. for example i like thorin, i think his ranking is good, but i dont believe its completely unbiased - he does think higher of some teams than others, just like myself, and there is no way it doesnt at all affect his ranking. the maths behind this ranking are much more detailed than some people think, and for a mathematical ranking i think this is pretty much as good as it gets. you can always make small improvements to it, but it wont make that big of a difference when it comes to the outcome.

C9 ahead of Titan, LG etc? I arent think that
2015-11-03 20:42
CLoud9 reached 3 lan finals in last 3 months (ESWC, ESL ESEA Pro League and FACEIT)
2015-11-03 20:49
were these NA league finals?
2015-11-03 20:51
2 of those are the same (xddd) ESWC was when they were still performing well so I can admit they deserved their rank at that point, DH Valencia matches were in July, almost 6 months ago.
2015-11-03 20:57
nice math, it was almost 4 months ago bro not 6. I do agree C9 don't deserve that rank though. Mouz>C9
2015-11-03 21:08
either way outwith the 3 months this guy was saying. But mouz would be > C9 if they werent so inconsistent tbh
2015-11-03 21:12
TBH if maikelele wasn't clutch god on mirage, mousesports would have went to quarters. They will forever be t2 though, until they move gob to coach. He is just horrible in game.
2015-11-03 21:17
yeah I agree with that. But if Mouz had gone to quarters and played vs TSM they would've been 16:5'd on both maps or something, G2 proved they are a really capable team.
2015-11-03 21:21
Well they would have had to face VP in quarters, and while I think VP have a 70-80% chance of 2-0'ing them I think mouz could have done it if they played really well. They have beaten VP on LAN before, back at Gfinity they won 2 bo3's and it was pretty amazing. G2 is just insane right now though, even if mouz made it to semis against envy they would have got annihilated
2015-11-03 21:28

well other tournaments are worthless then? This is a points based system, for example you get 100 points for one tournament but other team got 50+30+25+5+10 and is ranked higher even when being worse in current form. c9 had great results few months ago even if they have dropped of now. Its hard to Rank LG when they participate in very few tournaments. even lost to CLG @ winout. But like its said in the article they have very busy month coming up with a chance to prove that they are a legit top team.
2015-11-03 22:23
sure, we'll se... hope they show us that they are rly a top 10 team or even better

2015-11-03 20:42

2015-11-03 20:42
The difference between 11th and 14th is five points. I don't know how responsive the ranking variables are to day-to-day noise, but if certain teams are within X (e.g., +/-5) points of one another, would it just be better to say they're tied for that rank?
2015-11-03 20:43
Prolly very responsive since there is plenty of leagues/tourneys ect. every month and the most recent results are weighed way more

as the writer said when talking about c9, they only hold a top10 spot because of what they achieved in the summer a bit over 3 months ago, and in a week or two the time decay should take away a further 20% or so of their current achievements' points, which would put them at 235 points - just 10 or so away from LG, something that one decent tournament from LG can put them in the lead. tldr - c9 are losing points really fast, dw

Kinda sucks that you include online, as well as the fact that teams win tournaments without other big teams there, for example, up until gfinity champion of champions last month, nV have never won an event which had fnatic in attendance.

the online results are a very small percentage of the points, and the main focus of the points you get from each lan is what teams are attending (prize money, tournament format and tournament prestige are also factors, as well as a few other things).

Impressive rating by Cold Guardian n1 confirmed
2015-11-03 21:45
Yeah, I was surprised by that too. Cold is beasting, and Guardian...god damn, he IS the beast.
2015-11-03 22:06
1. how is clg top 10??? why are they ahead of titan, dignitas and mouse, all better teams? 2. where is hellraisers? they have been doing realy well lately, and while they havent had great performances offline, they have been great online, and should at least take a top 20 spot, over csgl, f3 or immunity

probably because the system takes in online matches and the online leagues in NA really arent stacked. Also they appartently almost won the bo3 against NaVi without getting to 10 rounds on any of the maps NaVi won Kappa
2015-11-03 22:24
country ranking: 1-2. Poland, USA (3 teams in top20) 3-6. France, Sweeden, Denmark, Australia (2) ...

2015-11-03 22:06
Nope, education. I'm a math teacher after all these years studying theoretical mathematics, good luck man !! ;-)

how can you justify nip being ranked above vp based on results of 1 major when vp won multiple tournaments in last few months and nip won none?
2015-11-04 01:09
titan same result as mouz, yet titan +4 mouz -3. hltvLogic

this ranking is not just based on the major, its based on the teams performances over the last 3 months for the most part. look at the points - they are 3 points away from each other.

good list
2015-11-03 23:22
Stitch, are you going to do an article on how the teams has performed when it comes to winning money? After all that's what matters.
2015-11-03 23:36
Stich :D Name reminds me of lilo and stitch ^_^
2015-11-04 00:04
Good point, I'll try and find time to do an update, maybe an end of autumn one ^^
2015-11-04 04:20
CLOWN9 TOP8 LMAO literally retarded ranking
2015-11-03 23:41
Oh maj gahd, I love you stich <3
2015-11-03 23:47
People should really start to read the whole post to understand it. It's not a 2015 ranking. Of course Fnatic will be top 1 in 2015. They would be even if they stopped playing till the end of the year. If you wanna take time to wright, you might as well take the time to read
2015-11-03 23:48
I'm happy to see some smart comments, indeed fnatic is #1 in a no decay ranking over this year.
2015-11-03 23:59
LG is to be congratulated. Months ago they were not even professional players and now are top 10. Nice!!!

+1 Most of people when talking about LG and brazilian csgo forget the fact that this is our debut year into the competitive international csgo scene. I think next year we can reach top4 and get even a relevant title.

C9 doesnt deserve top 10 at all LMAO. essentially switch LG and c9's spots and its pretty accurate. also, clg better than titan, mousesports ? i arent think that
2015-11-04 00:04
So by your logic BO1's > BO3's? great, another idiot in this thread. If you talk about current form, then I agree, C9 is in a huge slump and LG played out of their minds this major, mainly cold. Then they got pooped on by a not-so-great Na'Vi in a (oh look, surprise!) BO3. They're the king of BO1 upsets, I wonder if that will ever change?
2015-11-04 01:53
pooped = 16-14 16-13 kkk
2015-11-04 02:08
Them losing 0-2 x10000th time, kkkkkkk. Sorry, shouldn't have said pooped on, still another BO3 loss to, like I said, a not-so-great Na'Vi, at least in their BO3 vs LG.
2015-11-04 02:12
Navi trashed Nip dude, wtf r u talkin about?
2015-11-04 13:13
I never said they didn't play great vs NiP, I said LG lost 2-0 to a not-so-great Na'Vi, because they didn't play that well vs LG.
2015-11-04 18:10
or Just LG played good?

you're clueless. cloud9 has never performed at a major since hiko left the team, and even then it was under coL. LG has played 3 majors, made quarter finals twice. oh, and they raped cloud9 this major. both of their maps against navi were close. so gtfo kid
2015-11-04 06:19
BO1 upset kings, congrats. Come back when they beat a top 10 team in a series.
2015-11-04 07:30
Actually 3 majors and 3 quarter finals
2015-11-04 11:53
How is tsm #2? Damn. That should change after next LAN.
2015-11-04 01:26
Maybe because they fail every majors while nV was in final two times and won the last ?
2015-11-04 18:43
Uhm............. They stayed the same in the ranking when Fnatic dropped 2 places, when they had the same result on Major
2015-11-04 20:54
Oh, you meant 2nd is too high for TSM ? Then ok
2015-11-07 12:52
Read fnatic and TSM paragraph and you'll perhaps understand.. But after this CEVO tournament there is perhaps a new #2 ? don't know yet :)
2015-11-09 01:48
CLG and C9 in top 10? I arent think that
2015-11-04 01:47
lg>c9 liquid>c9 clg>c9 all>c9
2015-11-04 02:24
CLG over titan and mouz... lmfao what kind of drugs are you on fam? hook me up.
2015-11-04 04:55
For fnatic or TSM fans, calm your tits down. This is a MONTH ranking, not for the whole year. Ofcourse fnatic will be top 1 of this year, even if they drop out from all kind of tournaments
2015-11-04 05:58
I'm a C9 fanboi and even I think this is ridiculous. They shouldn't even be top 15.
2015-11-04 07:04
how can CLG be on 10?? they have not archived more then Titan, Mouz or Dignitas
2015-11-04 07:15
wtf clown9 8? hltv clown9 fanboy confirmed?
2015-11-04 09:11
i agree till top 7, after that it's a little weird. c9 isn't 8, and titan and mouz are better than clg i would rate clg like dignitas and titan over mouz 8. luminosity, 9. titan 10. c9 11.mouz ( also really close match against g2 in cluj) 12. clg 13. dignitas 14.liquid 15.flipside

Is there any pro player ranking too ???? Anywhere at all, on or off Hltv ???
2015-11-04 12:01
Like a hamburger advertisement, the reality is far from the appearance
2015-11-04 12:59
people still arent able to realize that this ranking is based on achievments... the thing that c9 is before lg is pretty obvious.what exactly did lg achieve? they advanced from group stage at cluj where they werent able to win single bo3 and thats it i guess. they are in better shape,they play better than c9 without any doubt(in another words they are better team) but that still doesnt mean that they should be ranked higher
2015-11-04 13:38
Well what has c9 achieved so far? not that much too
2015-11-04 18:47
3x in the final on lan with EU teams is still more impressive than what lg achieved... Like i said, lg is better team atm, no doubt about that but they shouldnt be ranked higher than them for now
2015-11-04 18:58
E-frag nice !
2015-11-04 14:18
