Astralis reclaim No.1 ranking from EG following Beijing success

Astralis have dethroned Evil Geniuses to reclaim the world No.1 spot in the rankings following Monday's weekly update.

The Danish team moved back to the top of the rankings following a flawless run at IEM Beijing that saw them lift the title after beating ViCi, 100 Thieves (twice) and FaZe without dropping a single map.

Astralis added a second title to their list of recent achievements, which also includes a StarLadder Major crown, a runner-up finish at ESL One New York and a top-four place at DreamHack Masters Malmö 2019. They are now sitting on 974 points, with a comfortable 152 point cushion over of No.2 Evil Geniuses, who lost the top spot after two weeks in the wake of a group stage exit at IEM Beijing.

Astralis are once again the world No.1 team

The North American team will have four LAN events until the end of the year, one more than the Danes. The two teams can only meet at the ECS Season 8 Finals, in Arlington, and at the ESL Pro League Season 10 Finals, in Odense.

Evil Geniuses will have the chance to make up ground on Astralis at next week's CS:GO Asia Championships, where they will be highly-favored to win the title. They will end the tournament season at EPICENTER, while Astralis will play their last tournament of the year at the BLAST Pro Series Global Final.

Monday's ranking update also sees AVANGAR move down three places to ninth, while IEM Beijing runners-up 100 Thieves climb up to sixth place and now have a team-record 521 points, just 13 points adrift of the top five.

ENCE is a fluke team, they will never be in top 5 again.
2019-11-12 02:21
sad but true, the kind of teamwork and chemistry they developed by starting at the bottom will not be reignited by switching players you can see the difference in their vlogs. no more ence magic using teamwork to overcome impossible odds, not even they believe anymore
2019-11-12 06:18
Honestly, they will never even be top 10 again. They\re gonna stop receiving big invites just based on their name soon, and then they\ll end up playing against HAVU and Tricked again.

eeeeh ... sorry. I missed the fun part? You think it's based on what somebody "thinks", "prefer" or any other sort of emotion? 30x5 = 150 top players in the world out of MILLIONS of players. Maybe you don't like NaVi, which is also based on who knows which emotion, but to call them a "shit team" is ridiculous and childish. I suspect there is a GOOD reason for that ...

It’s funny because EG is worse than Astralis in almost every statistic and they still beat them Dev1ce > Cerq Mag1sk<=Brehze Ethan>Dupreeh Xyp9x>Tarik Gla1ve>>Stan
2019-11-11 19:54
Rating Ethan better than dupreeh rofl Time to catch the choo choo fuck off train
2019-11-11 20:00
Lol showing stats is half the story. Ethan bottom frags every damn match and loses key frags. My boi dupreeh on the other hand is not even the star player and still outfrags everyone
2019-11-11 20:12
LOL no bias here, according to stats Dupreeh does the same
2019-11-11 20:15
According to your "stats", look at the opponent EG faced last few months. They played amazing at ESL I give you that. After that all ezpz opponents. Dupreeh might bottom frag but with +ve rating
2019-11-11 20:16
I think in recent form Ethan has stepped up a lot, before the major he was very disapointing imo. But since hes been doing very well and even got a MVP. Current form Ethan > Dupreeh 2019: Dupreeh => Ethan

Here's why EG beat Astralis: It is actually the exact same thing that happened when ENCE ended Astralis' Nuke-streak as well as most of the teams, that have dazzled Astralis. Vitality a few months back and even Faze (obviously not the 16-0, 16-2, kek). It simply comes down to aggression from the opponents. When ENCE ended the Nuke streak of Astralis, the Danes came across the first team in months that had been super aggressive as CT - ENCE pushed lobby pretty much every round. Astralis had become used to very defensive huddles on the opponents CT side and most of their playbook seemed to be based off of that. Astralis are supreme when it comes to tactical layouts of a map and insanely timed executes, and they are without a doubt the best team in the world. But their Achilles' Heel is countering very offensive plays, which usually is the reason they lose (this also means that they very, very rarely get outplayed stratwise). Magisk and Dupreeh are exceptional entry's when they hit the day - but they can fluke as well. And when they fluke on their entry's as T or on their defensive positions as CT, the team tends to fail. None of Astralis' members are incredible aimers and so they rely heavily on the tactical aspect of the game. However, EG has Brehze, ZyWoo has been able to shut down dev1ce with assistance of flashbot-apex and flashbot-Alex, Elige, NAF and Nitr0 are all exceptional aimers, who can shut Astralis down in no time. But it's only possible when they are hyper aggressive. /discuss

+1 You are absolutely right! The problem with the "five fastest guns in the West" playing style is not reliable in the long run if it's the ONLY thing you have. Liquid actually DID manage to take down the Kings by being well coordinated AND by adding Stewie they had even more raw firepower than Astralis! Remember: They are of course scary enuff with practically any weapon though not being at the top of any list individually. Lately we have seen Gla1ve entry-fragging, and on D2 Dupreeh picked up the big gun. Magisk has been doing the same on Train. They for sure don't win everything, but it's tuff for other teams to match this flexibility, considering their utility usage and map pool on top. "Superheroes" with ballsy moves and three deagle headshots in a second looks cool ... but it's not enough in the long run.

????????????? No? I was talking about the LAN in China that Astralis won? Of course i mention the location? Wtf? I said "157 points for a win in China", which was the location for the LAN that Astralis won? lol, yikes dude.

157 points seems legit (should be more but I guess decay from other tourneys) for an IEM. U put a lot of emphasis on the location as if you made the point that it decreases the relevance of the tournament. If you'd written IEM Beijing like a normal person there would be no misunderstanding.

"It doesn't" Indeed, deserves more points.
2019-11-11 20:15
the points are relative, not absolute. easy example: if the 1st place has 1 win, then another team winning an event will put them right next to the 1st place. but if the 1st place has 3 wins, then that same tournament won't get the other team anywhere near them. the amount of points an event gives depends on how many tournaments there were in the last 3 months (plus how many top teams are there and how much prizemoney).

EG earned 230 something points for winning Starseries s8 last month, Astralis winning 157pts after not dropping a single map in IEM tourney seems reasonable when comparing these 2 tourneys.

They have been the best all year, yes they dropped off but they never fell off completely which is amazing as most teams fall off completely. Coming back to form just shows how strong this team is mentally.

Its not bullshit. TSM was fnatics kryptonite. TSM( xypex, dupreeh, device, cajunb, karrigan) Their clashes was fun to watch most explosive plays from both sides lasting so long. So exciting to watch but not the best gameplan as Astralis shows now for years with glave. I remember when glave stood in for this team. After seeing that I wanted him to join so badly. Never knew he would be an amazing ingame leader too lol. It was amazing to see them build and still develop the best team ever. Even when they where dignitas( xypex, dupreeh,device,aizy/canjunb, fetish) they where a quarter final team. At that time just not experienced enough and mentally strong as a team. Also fetish was underwhelming but I loved to see him play and respected him as their igl. New fag.

EG was never close to #1 they got lucky after liquid fell. Navi, Faze Vitality all are better than eg. They won 2 tournaments, 1 with only like fnatic(their placing was also grossly overhyped they ain't #3) and they bombed out of 2 tournaments last place losing to teams like grayhound and faze

Just want to show some respect for both EG and Astralis. It's not a shame for EG to lose to FaZe, even twice. And btw, ViCi Gaming > FaZe because they robbed several points in bo3 against Astralis, instead of 2-32.

Quite a few "funny" posts here. Let's just get it straight: Astralis is the "least losing" team at the very top! Everybody can beat anybody these days ... which is ABSOLUTELY wuuuunderful for us spectators! But "the five fastest guns in the West" is juzz not gonna cut it! Yeah, yeah, yawn, yawn ... Astralis is "boring" if they win convincingly or they are "lucky", if they win 16-14. That's for the primary school puppy dogs. Scream, bark and vouf all you want. Astralis has presented THE strongest CS GO for almost two years now. We've seen competitive teams showing up, yes. But STAYING ahead of everyone else is probably the tuffest task in CS GO these days, and only ONE team is capable of that. Congrats to The Kings of Counter Strike! Yeah: Flair and flag and all that BS the primary school puppy dogs love in here ... Just look at the statistics. I would write the same if I was a fan of any other team.

vouf vouf! No shit, Sherlock! ;O) As a Dane I find it - maybe not impossible, but let's say a bit strange to support a team from Nigeria, Argentina, Taiwan, Hungary or Bahrain. And CS has grown in Denmark to the degree, that they steal headlines on other media. Their games are even broadcasrted on national tv! But no matter which team I support from anywhere else their statistics speak for themselves. 4 years in top #30 for "core" ... Phew!

Doesn't matter, now people noticed. And it is cancer to play against, but i love using it, if im being honest i would keep buying it if it was 3300$, i dont think i would be the only one.
