Team Ranking: October 2018

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

October was headlined by a couple of "Big Events", including EPICENTER and BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen, with a few smaller events — StarSeries i-League Season 6 and cs_summit 3 — and lots of online play in ESL Pro League and ECS complementing the large-scale tournaments

We witnessed a couple of surprising wins at the highest step of competition, with FaZe grabbing a title in Moscow, Russia despite recent struggles in rather convincing fashion, as they took out NiP, Liquid, and Natus Vincere in the playoffs without conceding a single map.

A great month sees Natus Vincere close the gap to first place

Falling just short of a win at EPICENTER, Natus Vincere went on to secure the BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen trophy, an event where Astralis were in action as the favorites but only finished third. After going 4-1 in the round-robin, only losing their match against FaZe, the Ukrainian-Russian side ended up defeating NiP 2-0 in the grand final, with Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev taking home his sixth MVP trophy of the year.

At the medium-sized tournaments, ENCE surprised everyone with a triumph in Kiev as one of the "middle-of-the-pack" teams after defeating Vega Squadron in the final. Having exited the aforementioned event in the semi-finals, NRG redeemed themselves by winning cs_summit 3 following an undefeated run through the upper bracket.

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 November 5, 2018, which goes more in-depth into how the points 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 October 1, 2018.

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

* Ratings used are from October 2-November 5

 

1. Astralis

Player Age Rating
Denmark Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth 23 1.22
Denmark Nicolai "device" Reedtz 23 1.20
Denmark Emil "Magisk" Reif 20 1.18
Denmark Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander 23 1.12
Denmark Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen 25 1.10

The Danish powerhouse keep their place at the top for the seventh consecutive month, with full points to their name. Following the start of the eighth season of ESL Pro League and the sixth season of ECS, Astralis have had a busy month despite only attending one offline tournament, and they have been dominant as ever online, securing spots at the finals of both leagues with an incredible 17-1 final record in ECS and a 19-5 so far in ESL Pro League.

Offline, things didn't quite go as planned for the best team in the world, who skipped EPICENTER and only attended BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen a few days ago. Astralis ended the group stage in third place after suffering losses to the finalists, NiP and Natus Vincere, while also having issues with closing out significant leads in their matches against the Swedes, Cloud9, and MIBR.

Astralis are still safe in first place despite hitting poor form at their home tournament

With 1000 points, Astralis have nothing to worry about just yet, but the second-best team, Na`Vi, have closed the gap from about 400 to just under 200 points in the past month, so should this continue, the Danes' streak at No. 1 could be in real danger by the end of November. All eyes will be on gla1ve's squad as they'll attend two big events in the upcoming month: IEM Chicago, which kicks off on Tuesday, and ECS Season 6 Finals.

2. Natus Vincere

Player Age Rating
Ukraine Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev 21 1.37
Russia Denis "electronic" Sharipov 20 1.25
Ukraine Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev 30 1.06
Russia Egor "flamie" Vasilyev 21 1.06
Ukraine Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko 31 0.95

Although they are not part of ECS Season 6, Natus Vincere have confirmed their place at ESL Pro League Season 8 Finals over the last month with four matches left to play, as they have gone 18-6 so far in the league.

Unlike Astralis, Zeus's team went to both large events of October, EPICENTER and BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen, and they have returned home with silver and gold. In Russia, Na`Vi looked comfortable until they met FaZe for the second time during the tournament in the grand final, in which the European mixture prevailed after two maps, leaving the Ukrainian-Russian side in second place.

Na`Vi draw closer to No. 1 after grabbing silver at EPICENTER and gold at BLAST

In Copenhagen, Natus Vincere redeemed themselves despite losing to FaZe again, in the group stage, which ended up being their only map loss of the tournament. s1mple & co. beat everyone else in the groups, including Astralis, and took down NiP in the title decider without ever looking in danger, clinching their first title since ESL One Cologne in early July.

That will come as an important confidence booster ahead of Na`Vi's only offline tournament of November, IEM Chicago, where they'll have a chance to double down against some serious competition, including all of the current top five teams in the world.

3. Liquid

Player Age Rating
Canada Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken 18 1.19
Canada Keith "NAF" Markovic 20 1.17
United States Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski 21 1.17
United States Nick "nitr0" Cannella 23 1.14
Brazil Epitacio "TACO" de Melo 23 1.05

Liquid round out the exact same top three of last month after five weeks full of online matches as well as one offline event, EPICENTER. Both ESL Pro League and ECS are looking promising for the North American squad, who are currently placed fourth (out of six advancing) in the former league and third (out of four advancing) in the latter.

Although Liquid keep making deep runs at big tournaments, titles keep eluding the North American squad, as they once again missed out on one when they were among favorites at EPICENTER. In Russia, nitr0's team breezed past the group stage opponents, Swole Patrol and AVANGAR, but they couldn't overcome a reinvigorated FaZe in the semi-finals.

Liquid continue to make deep runs at big events, but titles keep eluding them

With Na`Vi outplacing them there and winning BLAST, Liquid have a lot of ground to make up to have a shot at No. 2, where they briefly resided in October. At the same time, FaZe have almost caught up with them just before all of the big teams' next tournament, IEM Chicago, which puts pressure on the North American side to perform.

4. FaZe

Player Age Rating
Bosnia and Herzegovina Nikola "NiKo" Kovač 21 1.17
Slovakia Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács 27 1.07
Norway Håvard "rain" Nygaard 24 1.06
Sweden Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer 26 0.98
Denmark Finn "karrigan" Andersen 28 0.91

After spending a few weeks outside of the top-five during October, FaZe return to the fourth place with a promising month behind them. Online, the European squad has been shaky. FaZe are unlikely to make it to ESL Pro League Season 8 Finals with 10 wins from 24 matches, though they're well within contention for a spot at ECS Season 6 Finals with nine wins from 16 matches

Their recovery is largely a result of the team's win at EPICENTER towards the end of the month, where they snatched the title away from the favorites, Liquid and Natus Vincere, following a dominant playoffs run.

FaZe make their way back to the top five after the EPICENTER triumph

Just a few days later, the NiKo-led squad went to BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen, but couldn't find their EPICENTER form, as they finished the group stage with a 2-1-2 record (good for only the fourth place) after tying NiP and losing to Astralis and most notably to Cloud9, which cost them a spot in the grand final.

Now they are ready for their next challenge in Chicago, where a strong run could place FaZe a spot higher, as they're nearing Liquid in points, but the competition will be harder than at either of October's tournaments.

5. MIBR

Player Age Rating
Brazil Fernando "fer" Alvarenga 27 1.28
Brazil Marcelo "coldzera" David 24 1.20
United States Jake "Stewie2K" Yip 20 1.15
Brazil Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo 27 1.13
United States Tarik "tarik" Celik 22 1.06

MIBR round out the top five for the second consecutive month, though they've largely hung on to their placing due to mousesports falling out of the top five, as October didn't go very well for the Brazilian-American roster.

Online, FalleN's team has been looking strong, with their spot at ESL Pro League Season 8 Finals already secured with 17 wins from 20 matches in the NA division. They also have a good chance to make it to Arlington's ECS Finals with a 9-5 record so far, which puts them in fifth place but with fewer matches than any team placed above them at the moment.

Placing last at BLAST doesn't bode well for MIBR ahead of a busy November

However, after making the grand final in Istanbul, this month's BLAST Pro Series in Copenhagen ended in disaster for MIBR, who lost all five of their matches last weekend despite close results against Astralis, Cloud9, and Natus Vincere. That puts the team in a tough position ahead of IEM Chicago.

6. NiP

Player Age Rating
Sweden Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg 30 1.05
Sweden Dennis "dennis" Edman 27 1.00
Sweden Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson 25 0.97
Sweden Fredrik "REZ" Sterner 20 0.97
Sweden Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund 28 0.92

Falling just short of a place within the top five, NiP come in sixth place of the ranking, improving from eighth place, where the Swedes have stayed for most of the last two months. Until this week, Lekr0's lineup looked shaky at best, with a spot at Pro League Finals already out of reach and somewhat unlikely when it comes to ECS.

On top of that, they finished fifth-sixth at EPICENTER. After losing to AVANGAR, NiP beat the biggest underdog of their group, Swole Patrol, to make it to quarter-finals before falling to FaZe in a rather convincing series in the playoffs.

NiP move up to sixth place after the runners-up finish in Copenhagen

The Swedish side have, however, improved their outlook with a grand final appearance at BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen. They went 3-1-1 in the groups, securing points off three teams ranked above them with wins over Astralis and MIBR and a tie with FaZe, though Na`Vi denied NiP the title as the only team to beat the Swedes in Denmark.

7. mousesports

Player Age Rating
Czech Republic Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný 27 1.13
Estonia Robin "ropz" Kool 18 1.09
Finland Miikka "suNny" Kemppi 24 1.08
Netherlands Chris "chrisJ" de Jong 28 1.01
Slovakia Martin "STYKO" Styk 22 0.99

This month, mousesports dropped out of the top five. The European squad lost a portion of their points after waving goodbye to Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski, although they also gained some back with STYKO returning to the team after a four-month-long hiatus.a

The Polish player was relieved of his duties after chrisJ's squad bombed out of StarSeries i-League Season 6, a tournament where mouz were favored to take the title, despite getting off to a 2-0 start in the Swiss format, as they then lost to ENCE, OpTic, and BIG.

After the change, mousesports decided to skip EPICENTER. That has left them with just online matches for over three weeks, and so far they are placed within the top eight of Pro League and top four of ECS, though there's a real danger they will miss out in each league.

8. NRG

Player Age Rating
United States Vincent "Brehze" Cayonte 20 1.28
United States Ethan "Ethan" Arnold 18 1.23
Bulgaria Tsvetelin "CeRq" Dimitrov 18 1.12
United States Jacob "FugLy" Medina 23 1.06
Canada Damian "daps" Steele 22 0.95

The North American squad started working back towards the top in October, attending two mid-tier tournaments, StarSeries i-League S6 and cs_summit 3. At the event in Kiev, NRG didn't capitalize on the fact that many of the top teams weren't present, finishing only 3rd-4th after a shocking loss to Vega Squadron. One of the issues for the team at StarSeries was CeRq, who simply didn't play up to his standards, but the young Bulgarian stepped up his game at their most recent event, cs_summit 3.

NRG added another title to their name at cs_summit 3

In a more relaxed environment of the Summit House, NRG did what was expected from them by beating out lower tier opponents such as Heroic and Ghost, and managed more challenging victories over BIG and OpTic. That, despite some issues with anti-ecos and their Overpass game deteriorating, saw NRG claim the cs_summit 3 trophy, with Brehze being the MVP of the run, establishing himself as the main star of this team. daps's squad made a step in the right direction in October by beating teams in the lower part of the top 15, but to continue their rise, they will have to have a good showing at IEM Chicago as well, where they are placed in a group with teams such as Astralis, FaZe and MIBR.

9. North

Player Age Rating
Denmark Valdemar "valde" Bjørn Vangså 23 1.18
Denmark Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye 20 1.16
Denmark Philip "aizy" Aistrup 22 1.05
Denmark Nicklas "gade" Gade 23 1.03
Denmark Casper "cadiaN" Møller 23 1.02

Since changing two players on their roster, which cost them some ranking points, North have attended only one LAN event, StarSeries i-League S6. With just a couple of days of practice, cadiaN and co. managed to advance to the playoffs after beating OpTic, Gambit and Imperial, with their two losses coming at the hands of NRG and Fragsters. The luck of the draw saw them face off against NRG in the playoffs once again, a series that they lost 2-0, but with both maps being strongly contested by the Danish side.

Kjaerbye and valde have been looking better under cadiaN

Since the lineup change, valde and Kjaerbye have been reinvigorated, after somewhat underwhelming tenures both players had during the team's last months with Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen. Aside from StarSeries, North didn't have a chance to play another LAN and improve their ranking that way, but qualifying for ECS S6 and doing well in that online league, as well as in ESL Pro League, could see North having more opportunities to show what they are capable of on LAN in the near future.

10. BIG

Player Age Rating
Germany Johannes "tabseN" Wodarz 23 1.26
United Kingdom Owen "smooya" Butterfield 19 1.09
Germany Johannes "nex" Maget 26 1.08
Germany Tizian "tiziaN" Feldbusch 22 0.98
Germany Fatih "gob b" Dayik 31 0.94

Teams often fall off after doing well at a Major, and while it did happen to BIG, to a degree, they have still been doing significantly better than other top-eight finishers such as HellRaisers and Complexity. The German side finished top eight at StarSeries S6, where they were eliminated by ENCE who went on to win the event, finishing slightly below where you would expect them to judging by their ranking at the time.

smooya hit a rough patch in October

Other than that, gob b's squad played cs_summit 3 this weekend, and did just a tad better, reaching the upper-bracket final where they lost to the eventual champions NRG and then falling to OpTic in the consolidation final, after they beat the Danes 2-1 earlier in the tournament. BIG's three-place drop in this month's ranking can be tied into two players having significant drop-offs in performances: gob b and smooya.

The UK AWPer went from a 1.24 average rating in September to a 1.09 rating for October, with the team's IGL 1.06 rating for September proving unsustainable as he finished October with 0.94. On the other hand, tabseN has been outstanding and nex has been consistent, but they need more to truly challenge the top 10.

11. HellRaisers

Player Age Rating
Turkey Özgür "woxic" Eker 20 1.25
Jordan Issa "ISSAA" Murad 21 1.06
Ukraine Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow 29 0.99
Ukraine Vladyslav "bondik" Nechyporchuk 25 0.98
Hungary Bence "DeadFox" Böröcz 23 0.88

Talking about teams that dipped in form after the Major, HellRaisers are a great example. The mixture of players from all over the world, but with a Ukrainian foundation, had a rough start to the month. First, they were eliminated in the first round of the EPICENTER 2018 CIS Closed Qualifier and then they went out in groups of StarSeries i-League S6, a tournament they were one of the favorites to win.

On an individual level, ISSAA struggles to maintain his form, with no one else stepping up to carry the burden; ANGE1, bondik and DeadFox all finished October with a below average rating. woxic has been the only player one performing admirably, but even with his contributions, HellRaisers sometimes struggle on a team level as they convert 5v4 advantages at a low rate, only 69%.

Still, some luck saw HellRaisers get invited to the EPICENTER Wild Card Qualifier as a replacement, and they fought through the first stage and advance to the playoffs over ENCE to get at least one good LAN placing this month. Even though EPICENTER helped them maintain their #11 spot in the rankings, they still left the event disappointed as they lost to AVANGAR in the playoffs, a team that they were a big favorite against.

12. OpTic

Player Age Rating
Denmark René "cajunb" Borg 28 1.13
Denmark Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke 21 1.11
Denmark Jakob "JUGi" Hansen 21 1.08
Denmark Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer 28 1.07
Denmark Nikolaj "niko" Kristensen 20 1.02

Even though OpTic are still not as good as people were expecting them to be when this roster came together, after they swapped gade for niko, things took a turn for the better. OpTic qualified for ECS S6 and finished 3rd-4th at StarSeries i-League Season 6 after losing to ENCE in the semis. At the more recent cs_summit 3, OpTic finished as runner-ups to NRG, losing the grand final 3-1 after coming up from the lower bracket.

OpTic are finally showing some promise

OpTic are finally showing some promise

The two standout players for the team this month are cajunb, who has found a way to consistently contribute from a lurking role, and k0nfig, who is back to doing a lot of the entry fragging. A good sign for the future is also that, after months of struggles, it seems that JUGi's form is improving. Overall, the team is nowhere near perfect yet, but they have finally shown promise and made a massive jump in the rankings as well.

13. ENCE

Player Age Rating
Finland Aleksi "allu" Jalli 26 1.20
Finland Jere "sergej" Salo 16 1.17
Finland Jani "Aerial" Jussila 25 1.12
Finland Aleksi "Aleksib" Virolainen 21 1.04
Finland Sami "xseveN" Laasanen 24 1.01

After a few months of being on the verge, ENCE broke out this month at StarSeries i-League S6 and took the title over teams such as mousesports, BIG, and NRG. However, they didn't play the grand final against any of these teams, but another surprise, Vega Squadron, who pushed the Finns to all five maps.

sergej was the star in Ukraine and the 16-year-old grabbed his first MVP award, but over the course of the whole month, the veteran AWPer allu was the more consistent one. Shortly after StarSeries, ENCE attended EPICENTER, but had an underwhelming tournament, something that allu put down to burnout.

ENCE have made a jump to the top 15 this month, but are still far away from an elite team and need to go through tough qualifiers to play these teams regularly. With no tournaments lined up, their ranking might suffer in the short term, but doing well in MDL and the Minor Qualifiers is crucial to the team developing further.

14. Complexity

Player Age Rating
United States Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz 24 1.09
United States Shahzeb "ShahZaM" Khan 25 1.06
United Kingdom Rory "dephh" Jackson 26 1.05
Canada Bradley "ANDROID" Fodor 24 1.04
United States Jaccob "yay" Whiteaker 20 0.92

Complexity was served a wake-up call at StarSeries, where the North American side not only crashed out in groups, but also did it by going 0-3 and looking very unconvincing in all three maps. After the Major success hype deflated, Complexity returned home and played in the online leagues, only returning to LAN action at cs_summit 3 last weekend, where they had a much better showing.

stanislaw and co. took down G2 and Heroic in three maps, but lost the grudge match to OpTic twice, which saw them finish fourth. Even though it is not the greatest of achievements, it seems that Complexity regressed to the mean at cs_summit after an overperformance at the Major and an underperformance at StarSeries. Should they want to climb the ranks, getting more production out of ShahZaM, who has been positive but not outstanding, and activating yay, who hit a post-Major slump, seem like the ways to go.

15. AVANGAR

Player Age Rating
Russia Dzhami "Jame" Ali 20 1.26
Kazakhstan Timur "buster" Tulepov 18 1.08
Kazakhstan Alexey "qikert" Golubev 19 1.05
Kazakhstan Bektiyar "fitch" Bahytov 26 1.02
Kazakhstan Aidyn "KrizzeN" Turlybekov 19 0.96

The Kazakhstani team had a strong run online before they finally managed to face off against some strong opponents on LAN in October and show what the roster with fitch is capable of. They made the most out of the opportunity at EPICENTER, taking down NiP in a BO3 series before eliminating HellRaisers in the playoffs, and also putting up a strong fight against Natus Vincere, taking more than ten rounds on both maps in a 2-0 defeat.

AVANGAR made a name for themselves at EPICENTER

AVANGAR has been relying on Jame's AWP to get the wins, and the sole Russian in the squad has been delivering, game-in, game-out, since qikert took on the IGL role once again. The squad made a giant leap in the rankings over the last 30 days, and with IEM Chicago coming up for them, they have a good chance to continue the climb.

Yeah it’s crazy, he must have dual citizenship too because on faze he’s from Bosnia and optic he’s danish? Mystery to me
2018-11-05 23:17
actually it's very strange but everytime when i'm watching major or another tournament and my wife comes in- casters says niko niko niko. sometimes its faze sometimes optic (just coincidence). now she says niko is a guy without money who sitting all day long in computer club waiting for the moment when someone take a smokebrake to play 5-7min at his place. or he's just a permanent stand-in for all the teams all over the world- you have only 4 players?- its ok, niko will play for your team. he loves cs so much- no problem to play 8 bo3 in one day.

Nope the rank is not for 1 event,,,,,,The rank is over all, at the same time Astralis do not get more point if they win a event, do you see it ......if not your problem.

jAme is 20 but he looks like 35+ fitch is fine, many kazakhs look younger than they are.

Jame is a chechen or something... they don't age, they’re born looking this way.

mibr top5 what a joke
2018-11-05 23:39
how can astralis still have max points lol. biased ranking
2018-11-05 23:40
They are 17-1 in Ecs
2018-11-06 13:11
so? they still haven't won a title since september while other teams have, online games might count towards Form but not the other categories. certainly not LANs

Soo rigged when FaZe and other team were top 1 did not attend events they lost points Astralis attend events and lose it and dont lose points! oh forgot the owner of HLTV is from Denmark! #NotSaltyJustTrue!
2018-11-05 23:52
I think somehow team sponsors are exploiting HLTV rankings. All tournament invitations based on HLTV rankings nowadays. And i dont see any regulation or auditing from outside for that HLTV rankings. And all teams’ fate depends on this ranking system. It needs to be inspected by Valve.
2018-11-06 04:16
Astralis haven't been on their amazing form recently but they're still winning most matches, what does that tell ya?

Astralis are clearly NOT in full form right now so why do they get full form? Why do teams like astralis and mibr get so many free points in your rankings???
2018-11-06 00:01
the first place in the form category always has their points converted to 200 and then the same conversion factor is applied to all the other teams. the form category covers the last 2 months, that includes stockholm and the major, astralis also have 35 online wins across epl and ecs, they don't count as much, but they add up.

I'm judging the format of the ranking. Clearly something is wrong if their rating is based off of what they did 2 months ago. They lose to LDLC and almost got slaughtered by VP online and then bomb out of their home tournament. Totally best form out of all teams.

The problem is a result, top 3 at Blast with 3 won 2 lost in bo1. Besides that, they are 17-1 at ECS and 19-5 at EPL. That still not good enough?

It's not the most in form team. Mibr is not a top 10 team. Etc. Biased rankings. Yes Astralis is still #1 but not by that much.

Yeah...
2018-11-07 13:27
loses are not considered in the ranking, there are no negative points, you just get 0 points for them. the form category simply sums up all the offline and online wins (i believe an online win counts 10-20% of an offline win) and astralis is the team with the most wins over the last 2 months. i'm not saying this is good or bad, i'm just explaining how it works.

nrg wins a tournament - drops a position OMEGALUL, mibr still top5 btw.. hltv rankings for u :D
2018-11-06 00:03
Well it was tier 2-3 event, we can see from rankings they gained points still but just not enough to overtake any team, nip who was rly close to them in points just gained way more from 2nd place in clearly higher tier event with 4/5 of the top 5 teams participarting while NRG event had no top teams at all so naturally value of the event is extremely low when compared to blast xd. If NRG was in blast and got 2nd they would be in place of NIP now in 6th spot xd
2018-11-06 03:01
NRG haven't dropped a position. Where do you see that?

you know that they update the rankings every week, not monthly, right ? They were 7th before the rankings update hltv.org/ranking/teams/2018/october/29 here's the rankings before the tournament :D
2018-11-06 15:47
Good point! Maybe the position variation for this post is regarding the last monthly ranking? I don't know, trying to find some sense here.

Trying to figure out how Cloud 9 lost points when they beat up on Faze and mibr at this last tournament. Yet Faze gained points? What the actual hell is going on. Then you give Astralis top lan points when they haven't won a tournament yet this month. Matter fact, they lost to Cloud9 in the showdown which placed them fourth. So, Cloud9 basically beat up on mibr, Astralis in showdown, and Faze yet lose points. Fix your dam rankings page and quit giving teams full points when they dont deserve it. If no team is in top form, then no team should get top points period!
2018-11-06 03:37
C9 actually gained points compared to LAST WEEK rising from 29--->25, it is just that ranking change in this article is compared to ranking month earlier as it is monthly ranking update and they didn't gain enough in last month to cover their losses losing points cuz skadoodle left lineup and other old points they lost. Edit: Also I believe C9 got 5th place in the event which isn't great even if it is high tier event they only beat 1 team in standings, showdown isn't real match or anything either so xd... hltv.org/events/3701/blast-pro-series-co..

2018-11-06 04:23
Astralis didnt even lost a single point.. 1000 iq hltv
2018-11-06 05:25
now maybe if u weren't 80 iq and realized how ranking system works it would make sense xdddd
2018-11-06 05:45
>Astralis are still safe in first place despite hitting poor form >200points for form

Astralis cant make a final. Still Astralis has 1000points ---------- TL;DR Drunk ranking

2018-11-06 16:28
how is MIBR a top5 team? and VP top30? wow

NiP will be top 1 in the rankings soon. Mark my words.

Astralis deserved to be no 1 ( for the moment). If Navi will replace Edward I think that they will be invincible. Liquid no chance, will be out of top5 in 3 months. Faze can t be constant, pretty sure karrigan will be kicked out and the team will be scattered ( so enjoy the last tournaments in this form) Mibr with stewie the situation will be very bad soon. Nip a real nice surprise and the rest it s history. I think that mousesports will make a good event and possible NRG
