Team Ranking: June 2018

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

June saw Astralis grab their third title in the last three months at one of the two big events of the month, ECS Season 5 Finals, where the Danes confirmed their dominance with an undefeated run, beating FaZe and Liquid in the playoffs.

At June's other large-scale tournament, ESL One Belo Horizonte, two teams who fielded stand-ins, FaZe with Jorgen "cromen" Robertsen and mousesports with Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert, ended up facing off in the grand final, with Finn "karrigan" Andersen's men prevailing in a close series to clinch their third Intel Grand Slam title.

Astralis remain firmly in the lead

Various medium-sized tournaments took place over the course of the month, such as the CS:GO Asia Championships, where Natus Vincere emerged victorious, and DreamHack Open Summer, won by Imperial. MIBR, at the time still as part of SK, also added another small title to their resumé at Moche XL Esports, while Kinguin topped the ZOTAC Cup Masters Europe Regional Finals.

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.

And here is the current top 30 ranking as of July 2, which delves into how the points are distributed between the three categories. You can also check our ranking page, where you can find the current weekly ranking as well as its history.

Please note that the +/- gain on this table differs from our weekly rankings page because it is related to the ranking update of June 4, 2018.

Here's an explanation of the top 15 teams' history since our last monthly update:

* Ratings used are from June 5-July 2


1. Astralis

Player Age Rating
Denmark Nicolai "device" Reedtz 22 1.30
Denmark Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander 23 1.16
Denmark Emil "Magisk" Reif 20 1.16
Denmark Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth 22 1.10
Denmark Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen 25 0.98

This monthly ranking sees the Danish powerhouse extend their stay at the No. 1 position, now making it 10 weeks in total, during which Astralis made the grand final four out of four times and hoisted three trophies.

In June, gla1ve & co. only played four matches, at the ECS Season 5 Finals, where they topped their group with two wins on Inferno, coming back from a 3-12 deficit against Cloud9 and defeating Liquid with ease.

The Danish powerhouse has kept the No. 1 spot for 10 weeks in a row

Astralis then beat FaZe in the semi-final and claimed their third trophy this year after securing the grand-final rematch versus Liquid, completing an undefeated run throughout the London event.

2. FaZe

Player Age Rating
Bosnia and Herzegovina Nikola "NiKo" Kovač 21 1.34
Slovakia Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács 26 1.26
Norway Jorgen "cromen" Robertsen 23 1.11
Norway Håvard "rain" Nygaard 23 1.08
Denmark Finn "karrigan" Andersen 28 0.95

FaZe were one of only a few teams from the top-ten that attended more than one event during the month, as they attended both big tournaments, ECS Season 5 Finals and ESL One Belo Horizonte.

In London, the European mixture played with cromen for the first time and placed second in their group, as they lost to NRG in the match for first place before beating G2 in the deciding series. That pitted FaZe against Astralis in the semis, which marked the end of karrigan's team's run at the $660,000 event.

Thanks to the win in Belo Horizonte, FaZe stay in second place

In their second attempt with cromen in Brazil, where the Danes were absent, FaZe quickly disposed of Ghost and Space Soldiers in the groups before beating Liquid 2-1 in the semi-final. In the grand final, the No. 2 squad inthe world beat a Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný-less mousesports after coming back from a 1-2 deficit in the series, winning Mirage and Dust2 to clinch their third Intel Grand Slam trophy.

The European squad remain nearly 300 points behind Astralis, but they will get a chance to take their revenge and close the gap soon, as both teams will be in attendance at ESL One Cologne (July 3-8) as well as at ELEAGUE Premier (July 21-29).

3. Natus Vincere

Player Age Rating
Ukraine Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev 20 1.24
Russia Denis "electronic" Sharipov 19 1.18
Ukraine Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev 30 1.11
Russia Egor "flamie" Vasilyev 21 1.10
Ukraine Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko 30 0.95

June was a relatively quiet month for Natus Vincere, who didn't attend either of the big tournaments but instead traveled to Shanghai, China, for the CS:GO Asia Championships, which overlapped with ESL One Belo Horizonte.

s1mple & co. beat Envy and NiP in the groups to finish first and secure a berth to the semi-finals, where they had a rematch against the French squad and came out victors yet again before squaring off against Virtus.pro in the final. In the title decider, the Poles opened the series with a dominant performance on Dust2, but Natus Vincere came back with two convincing wins on Nuke and Train to claim the series and their second title in a row.

Lagging behind FaZe by fewer than 30 points, Natus Vincere are within touching distance of second place in the ranking, where they briefly resided at the end of April and in the middle of June. With ESL One Cologne around the corner, the event could see the two trade places should Na`Vi outdo FaZe in Germany.

4. Liquid

Player Age Rating
Canada Keith "NAF" Markovic 20 1.19
United States Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski 20 1.15
Canada Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken 18 1.06
United States Nick "nitr0" Cannella 22 0.99
Brazil Epitacio "TACO" de Melo 23 0.95

Liquid have jumped ahead of mousesports in the ranking following a busy month, during which they played at both big tournaments and returned home with a grand final appearance and a semi-final finish.

London saw the North American side lose three maps to Astralis, one in the groups and two in the grand final, but apart from that they didn't drop any more maps at the event, beating fnatic and NRG convincingly. 

Liquid overtake mousesports

In Belo Horizonte, nitr0's team looked stumped against top-tier opposition, as they only beat BIG twice in fairly close matches while conceding series to mousesports and FaZe in one-sided fashion, which saw them go out in the semis.

5. mousesports

Player Age Rating
Netherlands Chris "chrisJ" de Jong 28 1.29
Finland Miikka "suNny" Kemppi 23 1.20
Estonia Robin "ropz" Kool 18 1.16
Poland Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski 24 1.04
Czech Republic Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný 27 0.00

mousesports round out the top five with one offline appearance in June, at ESL One Belo Horizonte, where they traveled with n0thing instead of oskar, who skipped the tournament for personal reasons.

Perhaps due to the lack of pressure, the European team managed to go all the way to the grand final, beating Não Tem Como, Liquid, and SK without losing a map, but, despite an inspired performance from chrisJ, they couldn't overcome FaZe in the grand final.

mousesports have lost a considerable amount of points due to their roster change

Keep in mind that not only have mousesports only gained 80% of the points from the Brazilian event — as they played with a stand-in —, they have also lost 20% of points gained from tournaments they had played with Martin "STYKO" Styk, who has recently made way for Snax on the active roster.

6. MIBR

Player Age Rating
Brazil Marcelo "coldzera" David 23 1.20
Brazil Fernando "fer" Alvarenga 26 1.17
Brazil Ricardo "boltz" Prass 21 1.17
Brazil Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo 27 1.14
United States Jake "Stewie2K" Yip 20 1.09

The former SK roster have advanced one spot closer to the top five after clinching their second small title at Moche XL Esports, where they beat Winstrike and HellRaisers, and placing third-fourth at ESL One Belo Horizonte.

Back home, FalleN's team advanced from the group stage despite opening the tournament with an 0-2 loss to Space Soldiers, as the Brazilians then beat Ghost and took revenge on the Turks in the deciding match. They were stopped by mousesports in the semi-final, losing the series 0-2.

7. NRG

Player Age Rating
Bulgaria Tsvetelin "CeRq" Dimitrov 18 1.26
United States Ethan "Ethan" Arnold 18 1.19
United States Jacob "FugLy" Medina 23 1.11
United States Vincent "Brehze" Cayonte 20 1.07
Canada Damian "daps" Steele 24 0.92

daps's men continue their upwards trajectory by climbing another four spots in the ranking, as they're now sitting in seventh place following a semi-final finish at the ECS Season 5 Finals, their only tournament of June.

In London, the North American roster with a Bulgarian twist flew past G2 and FaZe in the groups to clinch first place, but they couldn't keep things competitive in the semi-finals against Liquid, whom they had beaten in the quarter-finals at StarSeries.

NRG climb to seventh place

NRG will not be in attendance at either of the large-scale events of July, however, as they have the Americas Minor coming up in under a week and they haven't been invited to ELEAGUE Premier. That could cost them their peak spot, as the teams above them and some below will play at least one of ESL One Cologne and ELEAGUE Premier.

8. North

Player Age Rating
Denmark Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye 20 1.16
Denmark Valdemar "valde" Bjørn Vangså 23 1.15
Denmark Philip "aizy" Aistrup 22 1.05
Denmark Daniel "mertz" Mertz 19 1.03
Denmark Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen 23 1.01

After entering the top 10 in the ranking for the first time since revamping their line-up, North continue to climb upward in the ranking, following a semi-final run at DreamHack Open Summer.

In Jönköping, the Danes got off to a bumpy start, losing to Imperial in their opening match, but then they picked themselves up and held off two top 20 sides, Red Reserve and AGO, although in both cases the series went to all three maps. In the end, North crashed out of the tournament at the hands of OpTic, who would go on to lose to Imperial in the final.

North have a big test coming up in the form of ESL One Cologne. With fnatic and Cloud9 hot on their heels and both of them having one more event in July - ELEAGUE Premier -, the Danes will need to impress in Germany to avoid a drop in the ranking, after moving up six places in the last two months.

The last few months have been rough for fnatic, who are now ninth in the world - their worst ranking since February. It is the result of a series of disappointing LAN results and two roster changes, the second of which saw draken take Maikil "Golden" Selim’s spot in the starting line-up.

After a quiet month with no LAN appearances, fnatic returned to action at the ECS Season 5 Finals, with Xizt at the helm of the team. With little practice ahead of the event in London, the Swedes crashed out of the tournament in the groups, with a close win against a struggling Cloud9 side offering little solace.

Xizt's men are preparing for their first event with draken

The new fnatic line-up will be in action this month at ESL One Cologne and ELEAGUE Premier. The German event may come a bit too soon for the team, but in Atlanta they will be expected to be a full-strength side, after making key changes that included bringing in a new in-game leader and moving back to a system with a primary AWPer.

10. Cloud9

 

Player Age Rating
United States Timothy "autimatic" Ta 21 1.13
United States William "RUSH" Wierzba 24 1.09
United States Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham 24 1.06
United States Tarik "tarik" Celik 22 1.02

The current Major champions move down two places to tenth after another frustrating month that included an early exit at the ECS Season 5 Finals following defeats to Astralis and fnatic.

Perhaps more worrying, however, is the fact that Cloud9 still have not figured out who their new fifth player will be, after benching Pujan "FNS" Mehta just two months into their time together. STYKO, who is on mousesports’ transfer list, will be acting as a stand-in in Cologne, but his future with the team beyond that is uncertain.

tarik's side almost out of the top 10

There are more questions than answers for Cloud9, who may drop out of the top 10 in the ranking for the first time since September 2017. STYKO’s addition looks promising, but it remains to be seen whether he will instantly click with the team. The truth is that the next Major is just two months away and Cloud9 are still not any closer to adjusting to life without Stewie2K than they were when he left for SK, in March.

11. NiP

Player Age Rating
Sweden Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson 25 1.18
Sweden Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg 30 1.18
Sweden Dennis "dennis" Edman 27 1.12
Sweden Fredrik "REZ" Sterner 20 1.11
Sweden Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund 28 1.06

The Ninjas slip out of the top 10 after a disappointing LAN outing and a roster change in June. With no ECS Finals action for them, NiP travelled to China hoping for an easy ride with their newest member, Lekr0, but what they found was a nightmare as they were sent packing in the first round of the playoffs by TYLOO.

It was not all bad news for NiP's fans, however, as they saw the team earn a spot at the Europe Minor via the tricky online qualifying stage. This will surely be the more important of the two events the Swedes will attend - the other one being ESL One Cologne -, as the team will be desperate to return to a Major after missing the last three editions.

12. Gambit

Player Age Rating
Kazakhstan Rustem "mou" Telepov 26 1.18
Kazakhstan Abay "Hobbit" Khasenov 24 1.09
Russia Nikolay "mir" Bityukov 22 1.05
Kazakhstan Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev 28 1.02
Russia Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov 30 0.96

Gambit were far from impressive at the two events that they attended in June, DreamHack Open Summer and the ZOTAC Cup Masters Europe Finals, but they still move up one place from last month's 13th merely because they lost fewer points than Renegades.

At the Swedish event, the Kazakhstani team beat the Australians and Complexity but were no match for the two finalists, OpTic and Imperial, settling for a 3rd-4th place finish. In Milan, Dosia's troops were simply well off the pace as they could not even make it out of the groups, losing to Imperial once more and then to Windigo. They closed the month out on a high, however, booking a spot at ESL One New York after overcoming a one-map disadvantage against North in the final.

Gambit are now 12th in the ranking

Gambit have just one event coming up, ESL One Cologne - their first with mir as a permanent member. Many will be curious to see how the PGL Major Krakow champions will fare at the event, after losing coach Andrey "Andi" Prokhorov and pulling out of ESEA MDL, supposedly to focus on their next offline commitments. 

13. HellRaisers

 

Player Age Rating
Turkey Özgür "woxic" Eker 19 1.32
Ukraine Vladyslav "bondik" Nechyporchuk 25 1.14
Jordan Issa "ISSAA" Murad 21 1.14
Hungary Bence "DeadFox" Böröcz 23 1.02
Ukraine Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow 28 0.98

HellRaisers move up two places when compared to last month's ranking update despite not featuring at either large-scale event that was held in June. In fact, their only LAN appearance came at Moche XL Esports, where they lost the title to the now MIBR squad after barely surviving a semi-final clash against Giants.

HellRaisers finished second in Lisbon

But June was far from being a quiet month for HellRaisers, who took part in a series of online qualifiers. After beginning the month with a successful qualification campaign for the CIS Minor, ANGE1's men also booked a spot at DreamHack Masters Stockholm after beating Spirit and AGO, while they were taken down by Gambit in the ESL One New York qualifiers. 

14. Renegades

 

Player Age Rating
Australia Justin "jks" Savage 22 1.12
Australia Aaron "AZR" Ward 25 1.01
Norway Joakim "jkaem" Myrbostad 24 1.01
United States Noah "Nifty" Francis 20 0.93
Australia Karlo "USTILO" Pivac 24 0.92

After three consecutive monthly updates in 12th place, Renegades are dropping down the ranking following a frustrating month in which they sole LAN appearance, at DreamHack Open Summer, ended in disappointment as they went out after just two matches. The Australians then returned to North America to try to qualify for ESL One New York, but defeats to NRG and Complexity cost them a spot at the $250,000 event.

ESL One Cologne could be another rough event for Renegades, especially considering that Nifty's side have their eyes set on the Asia Minor - an absolutely must-win event for them.

15. TYLOO

Player Age Rating
Indonesia Kevin "xccurate" Susanto 20 1.11
Indonesia Hansel "BnTeT" Ferdinand 22 1.07
China Hui "DD" Wu 23 1.03
China HaoWen "somebody" Xu 22 0.98
China Yue "AE" Yu 19 0.77

TYLOO close out the top 15 after a quiet month in which they only featured at the CS:GO Asia Championships, where they raised eyebrows by beating NiP before eventually coming up short against Virtus.pro in the semi-finals.

After surprisingly losing to BOOT-d[S] in the Asian qualifier for ESL One Cologne, TYLOO will miss out on July's premier event, meaning that they will find it very hard to avoid another drop in next month's update. On the bright side, the Chinese squad will have more time to prepare for the Asia Minor, where they will be eyeing yet another top-two finish.

Literally read the article you are posting this comment on. You are empirically wrong. Also, their latest game was a 2-0 for Astralis - Apart from their individual results (which obviously has been better for Astralis, hence their #1 spot on this list which is based on statistics).

Recent results > Older results. That is how the world works my friend. Literally why Astralis are ranked #1 statistically, good results don't "count" forever.
2018-07-03 02:08
I'd like to see the math on this, but I'd also wager that most of the gap comes from xizt being a stand-in for their Sydney win, and results before that also being at 80% because of olof

WESG was a tier 3 event with a massive prize pool.
2018-07-03 01:57
Mibr was there.... (or SK if you want)
2018-07-03 01:59
Exactly.. I said tier 3
2018-07-03 02:02
how come they are higher rank then?
2018-07-03 02:03
Having a few tier 1/2 teams and the rest tier 3 and below doesn't make the event tier 1
2018-07-03 05:32

Somehow faze has more achievements than navi for winning tier2 horizonte which netted more points than navi winning sli(which lost them 100) and equally tier 2 cac, north is still #8, c9 is top10 with 4 players, mibr has the same achievements as mouz (omegalul), and this ranking becomes more and more of a joke.
2018-07-03 01:57
Achievments is over the past 12 month, with decreasing influence. I understand faze > navi but mibr > mouz OMEGALUL, yes

What time frame are these ratings from?
2018-07-03 07:25
As expecting this article is just here to try to hide the algorithm problems by literally lying, Fnatic drop out isnt due to bad performance its due to inactivity and they had only one bad tournament that was due ro roster changes, pretty pathetic tp read this kind of biase justification tbh, Your ranking algorithm is shit and there is no way Fnatic is a worse team that north Btw SK 6th is a joke too yet the justification is terrible yet again, not even using context and saying this is due to them going in a lot of tier 3 tourney because theyre too bad to play the tier 1 one
