Liquid claim No.1 world ranking spot with Dallas victory

Liquid have knocked Astralis off the top of the world rankings following Sunday's victory at DreamHack Masters Dallas.

The North American side hit the summit for the first time in the organisation's history after the most recent ranking update, reaching a perfect 1000 points on the back of two title-winning campaigns, the most recent of which at last weekend's DreamHack Masters Dallas, and a runner-up finish.

Astralis leave the No.1 spot after 406 days at the summit - the longest reign since the ranking was introduced, in 2015. During this period, the Danes won 11 LAN titles and created an era in Counter-Strike, setting a new standard that other teams have tried to emulate.

Liquid are the new No.1 team in the world

But the current Major champions ended up paying the price for skipping a handful of international events. Since IEM Katowice, they have attended just four LANs - the BLAST Pro Series stops in São Paulo, Miami and Madrid, and the first stage of ESL Pro League Season 9 Europe -, missing out on StarSeries Season 7, IEM Sydney, cs_summit 4 and DreamHack Masters Dallas. Liquid either came out on top or placed second at the latter three, also taking the lead in the race for the $1 million Intel Grand Slam prize with their victories in Australia and Texas.

Astralis will return to action this week at the ECS Season 7 Finals, where Liquid will not be in attendance. This will give the Danish side the chance to make up ground on their opponents, but with 242 points separating the two teams, it is unlikely that they will be able to reclaim the top spot next Monday even in the event of a victory in London.

Liquid and Astralis will both compete at the ESL Pro League Season 7 Finals, scheduled for June 18-23. After that, the Danish side will play at ESL One Cologne, for which the North Americans will have to qualify via the GG.BET Cologne Invitational after initially declining an invite to the German event due to a heavy schedule.

Astralis will need Pro League and ECS wins. Honestly since Astralis have been out of the loop for so long, I think they will get caught off guard by a North or some other team. I don't think they'll win ECS.
2019-06-03 19:09
Furia or Vitality might be hyped enough to knock them out, unless they've trained while silent and analyzed everyone.

So everyone though should prob chill until the next event featuring TL and astralis, #1 and #2 right now is basically a tie with ence at #3, slight edge to astralis still imo for the duration they were on top previously, I mean they weren't going to be #1 forever

True. But this is the first time IN OVER A YEAR that a team other than astralis was n1. Even if it doesnt last long, still pretty cool. My honest prediction is that astralis does reclaim it after epl, but who knows right

Damn man , I am happy for Liquid but this hurts as an Astralis fan . I mean they let go off their era by skipping some high tier tournis and shit blast tournaments and just let the the second best team in the world to go above them with no competition. I would have rather preferred another team defeating the No. 1 team again and again to end their era rather than the best team letting the second best to do what they wanted

makes sense using the hltv points scheme, but still, liquid is in a losing streak vs mibr, lost 4 of last 6 to astralis, and almost lost to ence. bleh.
2019-06-03 19:57
Losing 2 online games does not equal a losing streak and playing a close series with a top 3 team is by no means a sign of weakness. Losing 4 of 6 to Astralis is valid though and I really would have liked to see them play Astralis a few more times before taking over the #1 spot.

Astralis 2. Liquid 3. Ence 4. Navi 5. Vitality 6. FaZe 7. Mibr 8. NiP 9. Fnatic 10. Mouseports 11. G2 12. Renegades 13. Furia 14. NRG 15. North

From danish news, Google translate, not perfect but sort of okay,: If you ask Astralis, the world rankings are not the main point of reference for the team's success. Danny 'Zonic' Sørensen, trainer in Astralis, would rather focus on performing when they play tournaments, and in 2019 Astralis has not played many of that kind of - opposite to Liquid. - It is most important for us to perform the best we can, because it is the way we achieve the goals we have set. We wanted to win the first Major this year, and we did. - Of course, we cannot reveal all our goals and dreams, but I dare to reveal that both the upcoming Major in Berlin and ESL Cologne, which we have never won before, are high on the list. First and foremost, however, it is the ECS finals in London that we put all the energy into, says Danny 'Zonic' Sørensen. Meet criticism for opt-out The fact that Astralis no longer tops the world rankings is also linked to the team's tournament activities in 2019. They have not been as many of them as comparing with other of the remaining teams in the world's top ten, and it has sparked criticism from fans around the world. So it looked when Astralis won ECS Season 6. Over the weekend, the Danes have the opportunity to regain the trophy. However, the criticism has not affected the players in Astralis, who in 2018 became the first team to ever win an Intel Grand Slam after nine tournament wins during the year. - It hasn't affected us at all. Of course, if people want to discuss it, they should be welcome to it, but that is not something we relate to. - We have been in such a favorable position that we have been free to choose which tournaments we would like to participate in. This means that we have composed our program as optimally as possible so that we can face ourselves and know that We are 100 percent, every time we play. It is nothing new for Astralis not to participate in everything. It's been several years since we started choosing tournaments, and we've continued to do so because we can see it works, says Danny 'Zonic' Sørensen.

Wow number 1 !! They must have won several majors.
2019-06-03 22:03
So you are telling me that over an year of domination and tournaments winning is being removed by few second places and 2 big tournaments won? Ok. From now on no one should take HLTV's ranking. I am laughing so much seeing NA being so happy, but actually for nothing xD

Good. I wouldn't want a team which skips events and loses those it participates in to stay #1 Hopefully Blastralis will rise and have a new era, but if they won't that's fine as well

thx for deleting my comment: Flusha-Elige THE TRUTH HAS BEEN SPOKEN
2019-06-06 09:54
WHy they are nr1, after winning 2 or 3 tournaments? Ranking system is as broken as VAC
2019-06-06 10:08
because consistently placing high in tournaments also nets you points, who woulda thunk? the formula hasn't changed and other teams could do the same. but guess what, liquid has been more consistent than any. it's not their fault astralis went in-active
