Team Ranking: May 2019

We have updated our Global team ranking - powered by EGB.com - for May 2019, with the biggest news being Liquid taking the #1 spot from Astralis.

May saw three Big Events take place—IEM Sydney 2019, BLAST Pro Series Madrid and DreamHack Masters Dallas—, with Liquid claiming two of them, as well as finishing second at one of the smaller tournaments of the month, cs_summit 4.

Talking about smaller events, DreamHack Open Tours 2019 also happened within the last 30 days, as well as the Pro League group stages in Europe and North America, but all of them had minor impact on the rankings.

Two Big Event wins within a month see Liquid rise to the top of the ranking

Something that had a big impact, however, was the IEM Katowice Major dropping out from the recent LANs subranking. The teams that did well there, such as Astralis and ENCE, were the most affected by this.

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.

Below is the current top 30 table as of June 3, 2019, 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.

Liquid dethrone Astralis

The possibility of Liquid overtaking Astralis during the Danes' period of low activity was something that had been speculated and theorized about for quite some time. Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander and his men had just completed their year at the top as April came to an end, but have been selective about their events since the Major and chose to attend only one LAN event during May, BLAST Pro Series Madrid.

Astralis' streak of 13 months at the top has been brought to an end

The Spanish event wasn't a complete disaster for Astralis, but finishing second to ENCE there wasn't the result they were looking for either. On the other hand, Liquid had a fairly busy month, which started by breaking the "Big Event curse" in Sydney. An underwhelming grand final against Vitality at cs_summit 4 saw them once again finish as runners-up, but Nick "nitr0" Cannella and co. made up for that at DreamHack Masters Dallas, convincingly winning the biggest tournament since the Major - in terms of rankings points available to be gained.

When, on top of that, you factor in that the IEM Katowice Major has fallen out of the recent LANs subranking, Liquid managed not only to overtake Astralis in the rankings, but be the best team in terms of all three subrankings: achievements, form, and recent LANs, earning a perfect 1000 points. Liquid therefore broke Astralis' 13-month streak and jumped 242 points ahead of the lineup that is considered the best in the history of the game, all while becoming the first North American team to place first in HLTV.org's Team Ranking. A monumental success for the team, and especially one of the longest standing duos in the game: nitr0 and Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski.

Vitality among the elite

The biggest jump among the top places, from #11 to #4, was made by Vitality, who have their cs_summit 4 win to thank for it. The Frenchmen played 15 maps at the fairly stacked event, and had to beat both of the favorites in the playoffs to lift the title. At the time ranked #2 and #3 in the world, Liquid and ENCE fell to the Mathieu "ZywOo" Herbaut-powered squad, who showed that they shouldn't be taken lightly.

ALEX was pivotal in bringing French CS back to the top

Following the win, Alex "ALEX" McMeekin did admit that cs_summit 4 was significantly more important for them than it was for other teams, but that doesn't take away much from their success. Looking at it from a national perspective, this also marks the first time a French squad was in the top 5 of the Team Ranking since January 2018, when G2 held the fourth spot.

Natus Vincere out of the top5

Ever since DreamHack Masters Marseille in April of 2018 and the role shuffle that saw Denis "electronic" Sharipov get more room to shine, Natus Vincere have been an elite team, always in contention for titles. That was reflected in their ranking as well, as they held a spot within the top5 for over a year. A few things coincided to see the legendary organization slip out of that elite group as May was brought to an end.

Na`Vi's ranking could plummet further due to inactivity

Similarly to Astralis, Natus Vincere opted to skip a couple of Big Events, namely IEM Sydney and DreamHack Masters Dallas, while also not attending smaller tournaments such as cs_summit 4 or DreamHack Open Tours. Their only LAN appearances in May were at BLAST Pro Series Madrid, where they finished fourth, and in the second round of ESL Pro League Europe, where things did not go their way either as they lost to North and Heroic to finish outside of the qualification places.

Perhaps they could've clung on to the fifth spot had they not also opted for a roster change, which cost them additional points. Natus Vincere sit in sixth place with 323 points after swapping out veteran Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev for young talent Kirill "Boombl4" Mikhailov from Winstrike, but an even bigger fall is to be expected next month as their StarSeries i-League Season 7 win will drop out of recent LANs and they aren't confirmed for a single event until ESL One Cologne in July.

FURIA within reach of MIBR

Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo and his men have been chugging along as a top 10 team since reuniting their Brazilian lineup, with a top-four finish at IEM Sydney confirming that ranking. However, with the Major out of the window and the likes of FaZe and Vitality making forward strides, MIBR fell to #8 and will need some good results soon, especially because of domestic opposition on the rise.

FURIA is looking like the most dangerous Brazilian team besides SK/MIBR since the Immortals lineup of 2017 that managed a miraculous run to the PGL Krakow Major grand final. Even though the teams are similar in terms of relying on a lot of aggression, Andrei "arT" Piovezan and co. have a layer of tactical prowess and innovation that wasn't associated with Lucas "steel" Lopes' team.

Could FURIA challenge MIBR in the coming weeks?

At DreamHack Masters Dallas, FURIA had their breakout performance, placing third-fourth after beating three top 10 teams - NRG, fnatic, and Vitality -, and challenging ENCE and Liquid in the series they lost. The young Brazilians have jumped up to the 11th spot on the back of their performance last week, sitting just three spots behind MIBR. With both teams set to attend quite a few tournaments in the coming weeks, we will see if the new blood can outperform the grizzled veterans and take the crown as the best team in the country.

Renegades slip out of the top10

While it doesn't come as a big surprise, considering the visa issues Renegades faced since the Major, it is still worth noting that Justin "jks" Savage and co. have fallen out of the top10 for the first time since February. Their rise, historic for a squad featuring mainly players from Oceania, happened during the IEM Katowice Major, and with those points out of the window in terms of recent LANs, Renegades fell to #12.

The iconic moustaches has been cleared of visa issues

As StarSeries i-League Season 7, where the Aussies had their last impressive result, will also be out of the recent LANs by the end of next month, they might soon find themselves in a precarious situation. Similarly to Natus Vincere, Renegades' next scheduled event is ESL One Cologne, which makes it likely that their drop will continue next month and leave them in a tough spot as we close in on the player break.

Cloud9 emerge in top30 first time since the Major

Rebuilding the lineup following the departure of their European members Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey and Robin "flusha" Rönnquist hasn't been an easy task for Cloud9. The North American organization found themselves at #142 after bringing in René "cajunb" Borg and Daniel "vice" Kim, and didn't make the most of their invitations to BLAST Pro Series Miami and Madrid, placing 5th and 6th respectively.

Cloud9 take their first steps forward

Their 25th place in the ranking doesn't come on the back of amazing results, however, as they were eliminated in last place at DreamHack Masters Dallas, but they managed to pick up some points thanks to sporadic wins, such as those over Ghost and eUnited at the ESL Pro League group stage. However, with just 68 points, 14 more than the 30th ranked Sprout, they will need some good results in the Americas Minor Closed Qualifier and at the ESL Pro League Finals to stabilize their position.

losses are not counted. they can lose to mibr 5 times, that would only give mibr more points, but liquid wouldn't get any less. the team with the most wins always gets 200.

But it's not like they have to beat every team they ever play to be the best team in the world, it's about achievement, which no other current team has been able to replicate compared to Liquid in recent days.

I would probably agree, but looking at how Astralis did lose to ENCE in a bo3 and to Liquid recently ad well (can't remember was it bo1 or bo3) things are not looking as one sided as they were until the last major.

Keep in mind, Liquid's map pool is very beneficial against ENCE. I mean, ENCE's best map, Train, will NEVER be played against Liquid since it's their permaban.

True. But even against Astralis Liquid's map pool is very good. Overall I think that we finally have (at least) 3 teams that are serious competitors for that nr.1 spot. Rhis year in CS will be fun.

Ik bro, my comment was ironic. I know that often people talk like that about their favorite team. But that is just absurd. You can't say "we won this major", because you, as a fan, didn't do shit to reach that victory. You only watched and maybe yelled if you were there.

2019-06-04 01:09
"CS:GO World ranking on June 3rd, 2019" It is being called may ranking Cuz May is now fucking done so it is basically ranking after May, maybe it is bit confusing but IDK it should be that tough to realize still xd...
2019-06-04 02:00
nope the ranking of MAY is ending at the 31st from MAY because yeah june is not may boy... i would have understood it when Dallas ended in may but it ended in JUNE so liquid is ahead of astralis in the JUNE ranking
2019-06-04 10:53
They always did like this, stop complaining
2019-06-04 10:55
doesnt change that it is technically wrong
2019-06-04 10:56
Tournament started in May, thats why it counts.
2019-06-04 11:21
It's been 3 months since Astralis played IEM, and therefore they only played 5 BO3s. The last time they won a BO3 against a Top 5 team was at BLAST: São Paulo, when they won Liquid by 2-1. In the past three months they skipped StarSeries, IEM Sidney and DH Dallas, which means EPL was the only relevant LAN tournament that they have played recently. They also lost their Inferno and Nuke winstreak recently, for BIG and ENCE respectively.
2019-06-04 04:00
doesnt change the fact that there is no data until the 31st may ... the new data was from the 3rd june and this data led to liquid being in front of astralis and so technically Astralis was still ahead of liquid in MAY
2019-06-04 10:51
the monthly rankings are a snapshot taken at the first monday of the following month. they don't start on the 1st of the month, they don't end at the last day of the month. the may rankings include all restults until the evening of june 3rd, it's irrelevant who was no.1 on may 31st.

MIBR didn't go done cause lack of form or anything, they went down cause other teams went up. If MIBR attended Dallas and got a good placing, they would have gone up as well, and wouldn't go down two spots.

I never said that just because Astralis are not in, it's a tier 2 :/, what I wanted to say is that this was a championship already won. Like, Liquid, ENCE or Renegades were going to win that. I even thought that FaZe, FURIA and G2 were gonna lose earlier (FURIA not because they are bad, but because I wasn't waiting for that/ I'm not saying that FaZe is bad, but their in a delicate moment). Fnatic is a getting better, but don't think they would win against Liquid, ENCE or Renegades. Vitality is also a very good team, their improving awesomely, but I still think they wouldn't win against those teams too

Well yes I suppose, but that's kind of their own faults. Ence dropped out of MDL before they even had a chance to qualify, granted they wanted to prioritize other events, but still the fact remains the same. Navi were in EPL, they just failed to qualify like two/three fucking times, so that's on them. Not sure what's wrong with Vitality, I think they're still in MDL. So tbf, as long as Liquid and Astralis are there, it should be a good, meaningful tier 1 event.
2019-06-04 22:59
yeah I agree. ence really should play 1 mdl season and get trough navi kinda suck, even when s1mple carrys them. I mean how can navi be so incosistent with 2 top5 players. should just get better players imo astralis liquid final would be insane, fight for the #1 spot

Why is Blast Madrid considered a big event? It's the same pointswise as Summit in the rankings.
2019-06-04 02:31
Why u think that it is the same? Also that might be cuz due big number of maps played on summit teams have chance to gain many points from matches of summit would they do really well on them, however I would speculate actual points received from event result were less.

I c, interesting inside, honestly IDK then but ofc it could be there is some prize money u must hit to have chance to even be big event or then they look field and deem if it is good enough, blast madrid for instance while it had some bad teams still had 3 top 5 teams including top 1 team so that is pretty good.

Usually people tend to disagree on my posts here. But If no ones gonna say it. I will... This is bullshit hahaha.. I'm no Astralis fan, but I bet my organs that they still beat liquid. This is why CS go is a kind of ridiculous sport. Dont get me wrong. I love CS. But in no sport the ranking goes like this.. Liquid won two tournaments. So what does that say? Was astralis even in them? And when did vitality become nr 4?! For what.. they are still shit.. They won summit boohoo.. I would say Ence isent that good either. Defo not top 3. Playing in the MDL league. That they dropped out of. Ence is good. But not nr 3. Why do I write all this? Imagine Novak Djokovic not playing a few tournaments and let's say Zverev wins a ATP and a grand slam. Does he all of the sudden become number one? Just because Novak didnt attend or even lost? No he dont. You dont gain ranking points that easily. He is miles ahead. Astralis was miles ahead aswell. Now all the sudden liquid gained millions of points? Astralis is pretty much still unbeaten as you can get in CS GO. Just because they lost some the last months dont mean that they arent number one. Liquid just won 2 tournaments lol.. Dont forget they are chokequid. And fun fact. They havent won in style at any final still... Sorry for this long text. I'm no astralis fan either.. But I still think they will beat liquid most of the time.
2019-06-04 06:23
> This is bullshit hahaha.. I'm no Astralis fan, but I bet my organs that they still beat liquid. People in 2019 still don't understand how HLTV rankings works and what is shows...
2019-06-04 06:28
Nah you are right. And luckily even though I wrote a novel just now. I couldnt care liquid are nr 1... Because in the game play we will still see Astralis win on any day, NAVI though being 6th doing some amazing plays and so on. FAZE should have won against ence aswell. Just threw two maps.. My point being. Dont matter if Ence is third and Faze not. I still think faze is a better team. And funnier. The same goes for Astralis vs Liquid. I peg Astralis as the funnier and better team. Does the ranks say diffrent? Yes it does. But in the Astralis vs Liquid matter. LIQUID got a shit load more to proof. Astralis dont, they won everything basically.. and cleanly. No flukes or chokes.. But hey.. Congratz to the HLTV ranks and liquid and vitalities progresses. And cloud9 going up 15 spots...
2019-06-04 06:32
why would you start ranking teams based on your feelings? "faze is funnier" what the fuck is that supposed to mean?... also if you read the article or would have studied it in sometime before you would know how it works. If you play a couple of blast tournaments a span of 3 months, lose them then this is what happens. Obviously if they play good in the upcoming finals they will be seen as the #1 again (which they should because they have basically been practicing for the last 2 months)
2019-06-04 08:29
Yes your logic makes alot of sense. What I mean is that I personally think faze is a better team then ence. Ence is just resilient. And have better strats. But that is gonna change with time. Allu is booring awper.. Their T sides arent that good.. Nah man. But this is just my feelings right? Let's go with the facts. Ence dont even play In the pro league. They dont even play MDL.. common?! You want more facts? Ence has lost 3 out of 4 bo 1s against vitality. And also a bo3.. they have lost against NAVI, movistar raiders, nip, nrg, and also ghost!? Ghost gaming? They didnt win summit. They didnt win Dallas... so please, I get that you are finish and proud. But how the fuck is this team number three? And this is not my feelings. This is facts over the last 3 months...
2019-06-04 08:57
How much has the quality of swedistans education dropped recently? You can see how the rankings are compiled, right?... Losing a Bo1 here and there and still making far in a tournament doesnt make your rating go down, so it doesnt matter who it was against. Going far in a tournament gets you the points. Also Ence does not have a spot in epl because theyre a fairly new team in the "big boys" circuit and had to forfeit mdl s30 (no promotion season) matches because of their major success. mdl s31 has a promotion spot but ence has a full calendar so they dropped it. Also nit picking losses from bo1's without any context... 90% of those probably had no relation to tournament placing. "Common?!" I dont mind going into further detail but i doubt you would understand.
2019-06-04 09:58
> I still think faze is a better team. And funnier. The same goes for Astralis vs Liquid. I peg Astralis as the funnier and better team. Ok, cool, but no one cares.
2019-06-04 08:58
This is exactly why the ranking is good, u can't just keep the number 1 spot while not winning that easily, old results should have only so much value anyway, imagine totally dropping off and still keeping number 1 spot for months, in ranking you want that could happen very easily :).

Okay so Ence is too high and Vitality is too high in your opinion, okay fair. So what teams would you have above them you cant just say they are too high but not offer replacements. That would make Faze top 3, that's laughable for about a dozen reasons right now. Navi top 4 after making roster changes and failing at pro league? I dont think so. Edit: nvm I read your other comments, your goal clearly isnt objectivity but once again bias.

So Croatia that won a friendly tournament consisting of 4 teams, Kazakhstan, Norway and Lithuania.. Is now the new world number one in football! Because hey. They won the tournament and that's all that matters. Even though they havent played the best teams..🤦🏽‍♂️

Criteria for placing anywhere in the top 30 HLTV rankings: 1) Able to win at least 1 map from a decent team 2) Invited to tournaments where top 10 teams compete They took 2 from renegades and 1 from ence. That's all it takes.
