Team Ranking: January 2018

MIRAA
February 6th, 2018 02:30

We have updated our Global Team Ranking—powered by EGB.com—for January 2018.

The first month of 2018 was dominated by the ELEAGUE Major, which spanned three weeks and two cities, with the first two stages taking place in Atlanta, while the playoffs were held in Boston, more precisely at the Agganis Arena.

Cloud9 came out on top of the $1 million event after defeating FaZe in a nail-biting final, giving North America its first Major crown and breaking into the top three in our ranking. Finn "karrigan" Andersen's men could not claim their much-desired title but they still have reasons to smile, having toppled SK, whose EPICENTER victory keeps fading into the background as months go by.

Major champions Cloud9 break into the top three

Following a playoff run at the Major, G2 have moved up three places into fourth, while Natus Vincere have re-entered the top 10 after reaching the semi-finals in Boston. North, meanwhile, are one of the losers of the ranking update, dropping down five places into 14th as a result of their early exit at the Major and the double roster swap. But the biggest story is that of Quantum Bellator Fire, who now sit 12th in the world as a result of their impressive Major run; at the start of the year, they were just 74th.

Here's a summary of our ranking for new readers:

Our team 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 offline events in the last 3 months.

Each team is required to have a three-man core in order to retain their points and online results are included but have minimal effect (only affecting 'Form') at the top of the table and mainly serve to put new teams on the map.

Here is the current top 30 table as of February 5, 2018, which goes more in-depth into the waypoints are distributed – or you can check our special page where you will be able to find the latest, weekly version of our ranking. You can see the lineup for each team by hovering over their name in the table.

Please note that the +/- gain on this table differs from our weekly rankings page, and it is related to the ranking update of January 1, 2018.

Here's an explanation of the top 16 teams' history since our last monthly update:

* Ratings used are from the past three months

 

1. FaZe

Player Age Rating
Bosnia and Herzegovina Nikola "NiKo" Kovač  20 1.24
Norway Håvard "rain" Nygaard 23 1.23
Slovakia Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács  26 1.22
Sweden Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer 26 1.17
Denmark Finn "karrigan" Andersen 27 0.89

Having failed to better SK in the ESL Pro League Season 6 Finals title decider, FaZe had to settle for second spot in the world ranking at the end of the year, even after winning the ECS Season 4 Finals. As such, they turned to the ELEAGUE Major for redemption, knowing that their arch-rival would not even be allowed to field their full roster.

FaZe began their quest for the Major title with a convincing run in the New Challengers Stage that was not without its hiccups as the team surprising fell to Vega Squadron. But questions about an underperforming FaZe side were soon laid to rest as the team breezed past the new Legends Stage with a perfect 3-0 record before defeating mousesports and Natus Vincere in convincing fashion.

FaZe came close to winning the Major title in Boston

It looked like it was going to be a case of third time's the charm for GuardiaN, who had lost two Major finals with Na`Vi before, but it was simply not meant to be as the European team were defeated 2-1 by Cloud9 after wasting several match points on Inferno.

However impressive it is, FaZe's first place in the ranking does not alleviate the pain experienced by the players after missing out on the title that looked theirs to lose. karrigan's men will now have some time to lick their wounds and come back stronger as they set their sights on the StarSeries i-League Season 4 event and IEM Katowice.

2. SK

Player Age Rating
Brazil Marcelo "coldzera" David  23 1.20
Brazil Ricardo "boltz" Prass 20 1.16
Brazil Fernando "fer" Alvarenga  26 1.13
Brazil Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo 26 1.10
Brazil Epitacio "TACO" de Melo 23 0.97

Heading into the New Year, SK knew that it would be extremely hard to retain their top spot in the ranking as they were going to attend the Major underprepared with a stand-in, João "felps" Vasconcellos, who had not long before made way for boltz.

The Brazilians did what was expected of them, keeping their Legend status; anything extra would come as a bonus to them. Still, they managed to beat a stern fnatic side featuring an in-form Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson and gave Cloud9, the eventual champions, a run for their money.

Can SK bounce back after losing the top spot?

SK slip to second in the ranking also as a result of point decay, which will continue to impact their EPICENTER achievement. FalleN's side will have two chances to prove they are the better team, in Kiev and Katowice, but first, they will be in attendance at cs_summit 2. Last year, the laid-back LA tournament marked the beginning of a phenomenal run from the Brazilians. Will the same happen this time around?

3. Cloud9

Player Age Rating
United States Timothy "autimatic" Ta  21 1.27
United States Tarik "tarik" Celik 21 1.25
United States Jake "Stewie2K" Yip  20 1.19
United States William "RUSH" Wierzba 23 1.17
United States Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham 24 1.12

Cloud9 achieved what many had deemed impossible: a North American team winning a Major. Their road to the Boston title becomes even more impressive if you consider that it started in the New Challengers Stage and that, in the following Swiss phase, they were just one game away from walking home empty-handed.

With no margin for error, Cloud9 picked themselves up and made it through the New Legends Stage with a 3-2 record, which put them against the in-form G2, riding the rave after winning six matches straight. However, Richard "shox" Papillon's men were simply no match for C9, who quickly dispatched their opponents before edging past SK and FaZe, the top two teams in the world, in three-map series.

Cloud9 kept the US flag flying high at the Major

It was a terrific all-around performance from Cloud9, who had not only the tournament MVP in the form of tarik, but also four EVPs, which shows that all of their players shined at different points of the competition.

The question in everyone's mind is whether tarik's men will be able to keep up this standard of performance. They will be widely expected to at least reach the final of cs_summit 2, where just SK should pose them a real threat. Only StarSeries and IEM Katowice will allow C9 fans to see if the team will be able to get in the fight for the top two in the ranking, which has been a two-horse race for several months now.

4. G2

Player Age Rating
France Richard "shox" Papillon  25 1.28
France Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt 23 1.18
France Kenny "kennyS" Schrub  22 1.16
France Alexandre "bodyy" Pianaro 21 1.12
France Dan "apEX" Madesclaire 24 1.00

G2 move up three places when compared to last month's update following a positive showing at the ELEAGUE Major, where they survived the two Swiss stages unscathed, only to go down in the quarter-finals to the eventual champions, Cloud9, in a series where nothing went their way.

After a disappointing ending to 2017, with no activity whatsoever in December, a month that had the offline finals of both Pro League and ECS, G2 showed glimpses of promise at the Major, where shox shined in his natural role. But the manner in which they were dismantled by Cloud9 left many to wonder if the team had actually improved or if their apparent resurgence was merely down to shox finding joy once again.

G2 looked in great form - but the playoffs gave them a reality check

The post-Major period brought what could be a deeply saddening news to the G2 fans as shox revealed that he may have to undergo surgery on his wrist, which, if confirmed, will rule him out of action for some time. G2 have yet to comment on this matter, but, if the bleak scenario is confirmed, the French team will have a very hard time to defend their fourth spot, with mousesports lying just seven points behind.

5. mousesports

Player Age Rating
Czech Republic Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný  26 1.19
Finland Miikka "suNny" Kemppi 23 1.18
Estonia Robin "ropz" Kool  18 1.12
Netherlands Chris "chrisJ" de Jong 27 1.06
Slovakia Martin "STYKO" Styk 21 0.97

Just like G2, mousesports also climb three spots after reaching the playoffs at the Major, but that's where the similarities end. oskar's men only made it through the Swiss stages in the fifth round, although it can be argued that three of their four defeats came against sides who made it to the playoffs.

In the quarter-finals, mousesports came very close to taking a map off of FaZe but let their opponents take the game to overtime, in which the karrigan-led side ran riot. On the second map, mouz simply could not keep FaZe at bay, failing to even hit double-digits.

mousesports secured Legend Status at the Major

Still, it was an overall positive campaign from the European team, who managed to secure Legend status for the first time in the organisation's history. They have been on the up with this roster for several months now, and despite rumours of impending roster changes, they can look to the future with confidence. Unlike most of the teams around them, they have not yet secured a spot at IEM Katowice, with the Farmskins Championship #2 being their last chance to qualify for the $500,000 competition. Failure to do lock down a place at the ESL event would certainly be a bitter pill to swallow for them.

6. fnatic

Player Age Rating
Sweden Robin "flusha" Rönnquist  24 1.23
Sweden Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson 24 1.21
Sweden Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson  23 1.19
Sweden Jesper "JW" Wecksell 22 1.14
Sweden Maikil "Golden" Selim 24 0.90

At the Major, fnatic looked strong despite making it out of the New Legends Stage only in the fifth round as all of their victories - particularly the one against Gambit - were very convincing, with KRIMZ and Lekr0 doing most of the work for the team.

The Swedes then played out an exciting series against SK in the quarter-finals, with the Brazilians running out 2-1 victors after losing the opening map.

Golden's men showed once again that they are indeed a playoff team, but they are missing that extra edge to be able to put their feet on the podium. Final appearances at offline events continue to elude fnatic, but they seem to have finally stabilised as a top-six team for the first time in over a year.

7. Astralis

Player Age Rating
Denmark Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen  24 1.02
Denmark Nicolai "device" Reedtz 22 0.91
Denmark Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth  22 0.90
Denmark Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander 22 0.78

An exciting month for Astralis, who finally had device back in the fold, ended up being anything but as the Danes were sent packing in the Major's New Legends Stage in what was the team's worst-ever campaign in a tournament of this stature.

To rub further salt into the wound, Astralis lost Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye to local rivals North, and now find themselves in a hurry to fill the vacant spot - with less than two weeks left before their next outing.

Kjaerbye's departure was a heavy blow for the Danes

Things are looking bleak for the Danes, who find themselves out of the top five in the ranking for the first time since November 2016. They have plenty of ground to make up on the teams above them, but if there is something that BLAST Pro Series showed, is that one tiny change can spark new life into this team.

8. NiP

Player Age Rating
Sweden Fredrik "REZ" Sterner  20 1.21*
Sweden William "draken" Sundin 22 1.11*
Sweden Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg  29 1.06*
Sweden Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund 27 1.04*
Sweden Richard "Xizt" Landström 26 0.91*

As one of only two teams in the current top 15 who weren't at the Major, NiP dropped four spots after an uneventful January. In fact, the Swedes haven't played any matches since the beginning of December, when they exited ESL Pro League Season 6 Finals in the group stage, and thus they have zero points in the "Form" subranking.

With a new coach in Faruk "pita" Pita, who replaced Björn "THREAT" Pers earlier this month, NiP look to cs_summit2 and IEM Katowice as a chance to regain some of the lost ground and get back in form.

9. Natus Vincere

Player Age Rating
Ukraine Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev  20 1.35
Russia Denis "electronic" Sharipov 19 1.21
Russia Egor "flamie" Vasilyev  20 1.20
Ukraine Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev 30 1.01
Ukraine Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko 30 0.90

In January, Natus Vincere entered the top 10 for the first time since October following a semi-finals finish at the ELEAGUE Major. Na`Vi's journey began at the Main Qualifier, where they were up-and-down but managed to qualify for the groups with convincing victories against Quantum Bellator Fire, Sprout, and Liquid.

They then started off the Major with a big loss to Gambit on Nuke, though the CIS-based team stabilized and grabbed three quick wins, against BIG, Liquid once more, and fnatic to claim Legends status. The quarter-finals saw Na`Vi smash Quantum Bellator Fire again, but FaZe ended their run in the semis on two maps.

Na`Vi return to the top 10

With only 80 points between them and fourth place, Natus Vincere now have a chance to go even higher heading into StarSeries i-League Season 4, although that will be their only tournament in February as they failed to qualify for IEM Katowice yesterday.

10. Gambit

Player Age Rating
Kazakhstan Rustem "mou" Telepov  26 1.12
Kazakhstan Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev 28 1.09
Kazakhstan Abay "Hobbit" Khasenov  23 1.04
Russia Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov 29 1.02
Kazakhstan Bektiyar "fitch" Bahytov 25 0.76

Despite having fewer points compared to December, Gambit reached the top 10 this month, improving from a 12th placing mainly due some of the teams below them dropping severely.

Gambit had a fairly disappointing month because of a group stage exit at the ELEAGUE Major. Despite a fantastic start, a 16-5 victory on Nuke versus Natus Vincere, the Kazakh-Russian side went 2-3 in the Swiss format, conceding maps to Quantum Bellator Fire, SK, and fnatic.

Down 120 points behind Natus Vincere, AdreN's team will be looking to gain a bigger edge over the teams below them at StarSeries i-League Season 4 in less than two weeks, as well as at IEM Katowice at the end of the month, for which they qualified last night.

11. Liquid

Player Age Rating
United States Nick "nitr0" Cannella  22 1.23
Canada Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken 18 1.17
United States Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski  20 1.15
United States Josh "jdm64" Marzano 27 1.12
Brazil Lucas "steel" Lopes 24 1.04

Despite fielding Wilton "zews" Prado instead of steel in Atlanta, as their new player wasn't allowed to play due to roster rules, Liquid managed to qualify for the Major following wins over FlipSid3, Renegades, and AVANGAR, thanks to a ninth spot becoming available due to 100 Thieves pulling out. At the Major itself, Liquid went 1-3, beating BIG in the first round before losing three times in a row, to G2, Natus Vincere, and Vega Squadron.

nitr0 kicked into a new gear in Atlanta

The North American squad hopped two more spots this week, qualifying for IEM Katowice and StarSeries i-League Season 4, which sets Liquid up for a busy February, as they'll also attend cs_summit2 later this week.

Note: The ranking update was made prior to Liquid's roster change

 

12. Quantum Bellator Fire

Player Age Rating
Russia Kirill "Boombl4" Mikhailov  19 1.16
Russia Nikita "waterfaLLZ" Matveyev 22 1.04
Russia Savelii "jmqa" Bragin  20 1.03
Lithuania Aurimas "Kvik" Kvakšys 22 0.99
Russia Gregory "balblna" Oleinick 22 0.96

Following a shocking run at the ELEAGUE Major the Cinderella story of the tournament, Quantum Bellator Fire, hopped an incredible 62 spots since last month and are edging close to a top 10 placing.

waterfaLLZ's squad caused upset after upset last month in Atlanta, especially in the group stage of the Major where they beat Virtus.pro, Gambit, and mousesports on the way to clinching a Legends status.

13. OpTic

Player Age Rating
Spain Oscar "mixwell" Cañellas  22 1.09*
Finland Aleksi "allu" Jalli 25 1.03*
Sweden Adam "friberg" Friberg 26 1.03*
Estonia Kevin "HS" Tarn  21 1.02*
Denmark Emil "Magisk" Reif 19 1.01*

Having missed out on the Main Qualifier following a disappointing journey at the Europe Minor late last year, OpTic didn't play a single match in January, also due to skipping the North American qualifier for IEM Katowice.

Raising questions about the team's future, friberg & co. withdrew from this week's cs_summit2 as well, with coach Chet "ImAPet" Singh stating on Twitter that "all will hopefully be revealed soon".

14. Vega Squadron

Player Age Rating
Russia Leonid "chopper" Vishnyakov  21 1.08
Russia Nikolay "mir" Bityukov 22 0.97
Ukraine Dmitriy "jR" Chervak  24 0.95
Russia Pavel "hutji" Lashkov 22 0.93
Russia Sergey "keshandr" Nikishin 23 0.82

A great showing at the ELEAGUE Major Main Qualifier and the Major itself sees Vega Squadron jump 11 spots in the ranking, to 14th place — their highest placing ever by quite some margin.

The Russian-Ukrainian team went 3-1 at the qualifier, defeating Renegades, Liquid, and most importantly the second-best team in the world FaZe. While they missed out on the playoffs in the end with a 2-3 score, Vega Squadron beat North in the first round and grabbed another win versus Liquid in the group stage.

15. Space Soldiers

Player Age Rating
Turkey Ismailcan "XANTARES" Dörtkardeş  22 1.26
Turkey Buğra "Calyx" Arkın 19 1.13
Turkey Ahmet "paz" Karahoca  20 1.12
Turkey Engin "MAJ3R" Küpeli 27 1.00
Turkey Engin "ngiN" Kor 24 0.92

Space Soldiers round off the top 15 after giving a good account of themselves at the Major, where they progressed from the New Challengers Stage with a 3-1 record despite a shock defeat to Sprout in an extremely messy opening match.

In the New Legends Stage, MAJ3R's men made it to the fifth Swiss round after defeating Cloud9 and BIG, but then came up short against mousesports, finishing the tournament in a respectable 9th-12th place.

With no events planned for February, expect a light downward turn by Space Soldiers, who, however, have a very busy weeks ahead of them after managing to qualify for the ESL Pro League.

16. North

Player Age Rating
Denmark Valdemar "valde" Bjørn Vangså  22 1.07
Denmark Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye 19 1.05
Denmark Daniel "mertz" Mertz  19 1.01
Denmark Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen 23 0.98
Denmark Philip "aizy" Aistrup 21 0.95

North continue to dip to new lows after ninth place last month, their lowest placing under the Danish organization. This month, MSL's team dropped all the way to 15th place following a poor Major performance and a couple of lineup changes.

A disappointing run at the Major resulted in changes in North

Going 0-3 in the group stage at the ELEAGUE Major certainly didn't help, especially the losses to Vega Squadron and BIG, who were ranked well below North ahead of the American tournament. The two roster changes, which saw René "cajunb" Borg and Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke depart in favor of mertz and Kjaerbye, caused the squad to lose 40% of their points and are the biggest reason North dropped this low.

The Danes have a great chance to gain back some of the lost ground, however, as they're set to debut with their new lineup at cs_summit2 next weekend. While they'll miss StarSeries the following week, they also qualified for IEM Katowice, which is taking place at the end of February.

Fun fact: FaZe and Na'vi were the only teams to ever reach top 1 in HLTV that never won a major

Another (maybe not fun) fact is that FaZe have won only one in the last seven big tournaments that they have played and still are top 1.

Umm no. They've made 5/7 finals in the past seven big lans and they won 2 of them.... this also doesn't count ESL NY
2018-02-06 03:44
? They won ECS. If you count ESL NY then they have 2 wins. The last seven "big" lans they were at along with their placing are in reverse order 2nd at Eleague Major 2018 1st at ECS Season 4 2nd at ESL Pro League Season 6 Finals 3rd at BLAST Pro Series: Copenhagen 2017 2nd at IEM XII Oakland 5-6th at EPICENTER 2017 1st at ESL One: New York 2017 With New York they have 2, without they have 1.

just wrong again. Faze deserve top 1 they've been very consistent since their roster change
2018-02-06 12:16
Honestly, no way they're actually rank 1. They're simply unable to win against SK, and also have huge problems winning finals. But they have consistently been rank 2 and kept up a high level of play. Even in the last tournament they dodged SK in the elimination games and SK wasnt playing with their actual lineup, so this #1 doesn't actually mean much of anything.

SK in the same stretch of tournaments 3-4th at Eleague Major 2018 Didn't qualify for ECS Season 4 1st at ESL Pro League Season 6 Finals 1st at BLAST Pro Series: Copenhagen 2017 3-4th at IEM XII Oakland 1st at EPICENTER 2017 9-12th at ELEAGUE Premier 3-4th at ESL One: New York 2017 FaZe's results are objectively better
2018-02-06 14:09
3 1st and 3 3-4th. Faze's results look objectively worse to me.

Faze's game this month is certainly better than sk's specially at the last major

yes
2018-02-06 02:31
I'm going to assume you guys didnt have something written for one of either SS or QBF and did have something for North and so you had to do a run down of top 16 instead of just the 15 I'm going to guess it was SS because you threw in the Pro league stuff
2018-02-06 02:46
Why FaZe First??
2018-02-06 02:31
Coz they reached major finals and sk didn't
2018-02-06 02:32
well how many points were faze behind before the major?
2018-02-06 02:33
40 or 50 i guess

The funny part is that the updated the rank 1 day after the major And sk had 916 while faze had 914 Now that faze played literally 0 matches they got more points Hltv logic

Im tired of this fucking rank powered by fucking EGB.com, doesnt make any sense faze in top1 with these circumstances
2018-02-06 03:07
WHy doesn't it make sense if FaZe had better placements then SK and they had only 17 points less then SK before major?
2018-02-06 06:55
After the major there was 2 points of difference still
2018-02-06 13:37
Only tournaments from last 3 months count (in this hltv ranking point system). SK had more becaues of that and after certain tournament reaches 4 months (i guess) the points don't count because atm faze has 100+ points more then SK just because of that.
2018-02-06 23:55
tournaments from before that also count but only for like 5% or sth

SK didn't reach the finals, they had a small points difference, Cloud9 was already pretty low with points and that's why Faze is first.

2018-02-06 05:37
Why is it so easy to piss of Brazilians? Are all of you short tempered? I just hate that you're trying to take credit for someone else's accomplishments. It's fine if you're a fan and supporting your home country, but including yourself in someone else's success is ridiculous

like anywhere else, it's easy to piss SOMEONE off. remember you are on the internet, where most underaged obnoxious people use social media to spread anger and in your case, xenophobia.
2018-02-06 14:00
And before you make assumptions, I am not attacking you because you're Brazilian, don't pull that card. Pulling the race card makes you look bad, not me. And I wasn't trying to piss you off, I just wanted to point out that I think it's ridiculous to try and take credit for someone else's achievements and say " I contributed to the win cause I was cheering for them", just no. And if I saw another comment saying "we" I would call them out as well
2018-02-06 06:46
But you wouldn't, cuz no one but Brazilians do that
2018-02-06 08:48

for Space soldiers its first time they reach top 15. But bad news are they fuckn lost to envy with 2 stand-in at starseries quals and to ago at iem open quals. So sad at the end of the february they will be out of top 20.

2018-02-12 13:48
The final match of EPICENTER was to the time when the ranking got updated directly after the major not older than 3 months. A week later (this article) it was therefore SK lost points (who finished 1st) and FaZe recovered nicely (who finished 5-6th).

? This is not, how the ranking works! Only 4 of 5 SK-players got points for reaching the semifinal, while all 5 players of Faze got even more points for reaching the final. Furthermore sure it was versus them same team, but it was on different stages during the tournament. And the main reason why SK lost actually points now is, that the Relevance-Percentage of the older tournament has changed during the past week, which was obviously to the disadvantage of SK.

Can you guys see that SK and FaZe are miles ahead the others, and if one of them doesn't exist, maybe the cs:go scene wouldn't be that good? I mean, I personally don't like when one team wins everything, without a really effort. One team pushes each other in this case. I'm good with SK winning every tournament this year, with a condition of FaZe playing the tournament as well. Otherwise, mehh..

True . I always said that faze and sk is a tier above other team in current competitive cs go but g2 and astralis can put up a good fight against them when they are at their prime
2018-02-06 07:11
What do you mean? Arent SK and Faze like 10-0 for SK or something in BoX games? Their games are usually pretty one sided. Statistically SK vs VP have made the best box series also I think G2 and Astralis have been better against SK as well. In a way Faze is doing the opposite of what you're saying by getting to the finals and just losing there in a boring match against SK, where another team could make it exciting.
2018-02-06 13:53
You don't have the mind of a winner, of a competitor, that's why you don't get it. Put yourself on FaZe shoes, 10-0 to sk, wouldn't you practice more and more and study more and more to beat SK? If SK wasn't there, FaZe wouldn't need that much practice, and the scene would be boring with just FaZe on top, as it was when only Fnatic was on top and unbeatable. CSGO is rising again ((maybe not)) because of these great match ups and rivalry

In which universe is qbf better than SS???? Even HR can easily 2-0 them... guy you count major run so bad , qbf went to major only because of cis easy qual. The only win on major i could say good one was against mouz... the rest? Flash , envyus with bot coach , gambit with fitch - they played horrible against every team ... i can also give them avangar as they were decent

Nobody noticed that Fnatic is the most consistent team ever, allways Legends and the only team in top 30 that didn't change place, forever 6th place.

S1mple's rating is insane. If only the players around him could be more consistent. Then NAVI would be doing much better then they are now.

maybe simple insane individual style ruins others players game...
2018-02-07 02:26
Do you ever watch NAVI's games? Because S1mple gets soo much information when he plays aggressively that it should be easier for the rest of the team to figure out where their enemies could be and prepare for them.

so every time simple go agressive he do well and make advantage and give information tell me how they are not wining anything? u have a very very low vision bro, it is very hard to play with a play maker like him and fit on the map where he need u to be, i am not blaming him, i am a huge fan of his game, for me he is right next to cold niko fer fallen device kennys however takes time to a team learn and develop to play "insane" like he wants too

NiP still on the top 10, with pretty much the same points as astralis when they pretty much don't play any revelevant matches. Does decay in points work different for them?

Xd ok, it's acceptably if faze win the major but not. This rank is a joke. SK Won 8 tournament in 2017 and Faze 4, and this was the first tournament in this year and how you explain the the #1 for FaZe?

relax buddy, this tourney is very small i am sure they used it more to train new things than to try to reach maximum level hold your ass in the chair and watch SK domination 2018 faze even got invited buy the way...
2018-02-13 03:17
Faze doesn't attend tier 2 events so no doubt why they weren't there. And I will wait patiently, enjoy MDL next season.
