Team Ranking: June 2022

The first Monday of a new month means it's once again time to view the most impactful ranking changes of the last four weeks.

Half the year is officially over as we now bid farewell to the month of June, which was host to the Pinnacle Cup Championship, GET Dubai, and most notably the BLAST Premier Spring Final. Those three international LAN events also showcased three different winners, with Heroic, Ninjas in Pyjamas, and Natus Vincere taking home the top spot in the respective tournaments.

Needless to say, the competitions mentioned above had the largest effect on the world rankings, which saw a lot of movement from teams in the lower half of the board, including a remarkable first-time appearance from Rare Atom.

NAVI are challenging the first-place spot held by FaZe

For new readers or those in need of a refresher, here's a summary of how the HLTV World Ranking by 1xBet works:

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 two months, and performance in recent events in the last 3 months.

Each team is required to have a three-man core in order to retain their points. Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, online results, which previously had a minimal effect, now carry more weight as they are also included in the 'Achievements' and 'Recent Events' sub-categories.

Below is the current top 30 table as of Monday, July 4, 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.

NAVI threaten FaZe's No. 1 status ahead of Cologne

The world's two highest-ranked teams had different fortunes in June, especially at BLAST Spring Final where Natus Vincere were crowned champions, whilst FaZe had to settle for a measly 5-6th place, getting eliminated by none other than their Russian-Ukrainian rivals.

Prior to the $425,000 competition in Lisbon, Natus Vincere lost a place in the rankings to ENCE after the latter's hot streak and the benching of longtime in-game leader Kirill "⁠Boombl4⁠" Mikhailov, which deducted 20% of the team's total points. After having fielded Viktor "⁠sdy⁠" Orudzhev to complete their roster for the time being starting at BLAST, Denis "⁠electroNic⁠" Sharipov's men are back up to No. 2 in the world, within arm's reach of ending FaZe's reign.

IEM Cologne will be decisive for both NAVI and FaZe

Natus Vincere participated in just one tournament throughout the entirety of June, the BLAST Spring Final, which they convincingly claimed victory at while dispatching of fellow top-ten sides BIG, Vitality, and the world's best team, FaZe. Not only did the win grant them maximum points for the event, but the low placement of Finn "⁠karrigan⁠" Andersen's squad was a significant boost to Natus Vincere's quest to regain the top step of the world rankings.

Meanwhile, FaZe were able to pick up a runner-up finish at the online Roobet Cup, but anything less than perfection for a team of their stature is still an unfavorable result in a contest they were the overwhelming favorites in. Ever since the conclusion of the PGL Major, the dominance the international side displayed throughout the first few Big Events of the year has dissipated quite a fair bit. With IEM Cologne just around the corner, a tournament karrigan had previously expressed is a must-win for his crew's season, it will be imperative they regain their form quickly before things take an even harder turn.

Vitality jump to fifth overall

It's no secret that 2022 hasn't been Vitality's year so far. With disappointing finishes at both the PGL Major and IEM Dallas, they found themselves just barely in the top ten at the beginning of June, sitting 24 points above BIG in 11th. When the BLAST Spring Final came around, however, the French-Danish squad quickly went to work and showed just what they were capable of.

A 1-2 loss to G2 in the opening series was certainly not the start Vitality were looking for, as they were now facing early elimination in yet another tournament. Nevertheless, they pulled off a brilliant recovery in the matches to come, defeating paiN 2-1 to qualify for the playoff stage, before taking down ENCE and exacting revenge on G2 in the quarter and semi-finals to set up a grand final showdown against Natus Vincere.

dupreeh: "I just think that we started believing a bit"

Though a 0-2 defeat wasn't exactly the result they hoped to achieve, a second-place finish against some of the world's highest-ranked teams was the sort of morale and confidence boost the team needed moving forward. With a positive result now under their belt, can Dan "⁠apEX⁠" Madesclaire and company turn things around in the back half of the year?

OG break into top 15

What a difference one month makes for OG, who now sit at 13th in the world after making up 18 spots since the start of June, where they were previously ranked just outside the top 30. Things weren't always on the upside though, as they looked lost at the end of the Europe RMR last April, bombing out in 9-11th and failing to qualify for the Major in Antwerp.

Since then, the Nemanja "⁠nexa⁠" Isaković-led side went through some big changes, benching Valdemar "⁠valde⁠" Bjørn Vangså and Nikolaj "⁠niko⁠" Kristensen and replacing them with youngsters Adam "⁠NEOFRAG⁠" Zouhar and Maciej "⁠F1KU⁠" Miklas. The move has since proved to be beneficial for the European mix, attaining 3-4th at both GET Dubai and the BLAST Spring Final.

OG round out roster with F1KU and NEOFRAG

It's worth noting that OG didn't gain maximum points from the Lisbon tournament, only coming home with 80% as Abdul "⁠degster⁠" Gasanov stood in for main AWPer Mateusz "⁠mantuu⁠" Wilczewski, who was out due to an illness.

Even with just a few matches played since the roster shuffle, OG have looked like a completely different team compared to how they fared at the RMR, this time capable of challenging even the very best as demonstrated by their wins over Natus Vincere and ENCE throughout their BLAST campaign.

Entropiq and Complexity crash out of the top 30

Two of the biggest drop-offs from last month's rankings are Entropiq and Complexity, who find themselves out of the top 30 following a dismal June campaign for both organizations, with the Russians landing at 31st and the North American side even further down the order.

One of the main factors to Entropiq's fall to the 31st spot was Nikolay "⁠mir⁠" Bityukov's addition to the team, replacing rifler Viktor "⁠Lack1⁠" Boldyrev who had been with the team for over a year, which takes away 20% of the Russians' accumulated points in the process. Along with the new signing, Entropiq's tournament performances were less than stellar, their 5-6th at ESL Challenger EU and 13-16th at the Roobet Cup definitely not doing the team any favors when it came to staying in the top 30 of HLTV's world rankings.

Complexity didn't win a single match all June

Meanwhile, the last four weeks for Complexity were nothing short of a disaster, finishing dead last in both of the competitions they took part in, GET Dubai and Roobet Cup. The North American side failed to put up a single win in the three matches they played, falling to stronger teams in OG, Cloud9, and Astralis. Given the results, a silver lining in an already disappointing year for Complexity seems a little farfetched unless the organization makes a change as we head into the player break.

Honorable Mentions:

- BIG make the top ten
- Movistar Riders sit at 14th overall
- 00NATION make a return to top 30
- Rare Atom reach top 30 for the first time

I can't understand all the "why is Faze still number 1?" complaints here - they won the 3 biggest tournaments this year and still made it to playoffs on the 2 that follow on that list. a 4 months run of excellence vs 1 month of bad/subpar play. I disagree they were dominant during their run, but a win is a win (especially a major win). They will probably lose that spot after Cologne (unless they win again), but it was thoroughly deserved so far.
