"One serb decides everything, and the community treats the ranking as if it was sent from above. There's no such thing as danish bias, all MVP medals and HLTV Rankings are given out by the same serbian guy, Tgwri1s; in fact the danes [Per "Nomad" Lambæk and Martin "Rosenchef" Rosenbæk] own it only for their percentage of HLTV's equity. In reality, the rankings are biased against device since team achievements mattered a lot in the rankings 2013-2017 when device carried his team but lacked great trophies [sic] but then he [Tgwri1s] of course suddenly changed the rankings in 2018-2019 so the only factor was rating (baiting) when device started his era with astralis.

-Astralis have $8,165,634 in winnings (By far the most of any team)
-Astralis have won the most majors in CS:GO history: ELEAGUE Major: Atlanta 2017, FACEIT Major: London 2018, IEM Katowice Major 2019, and StarLadder Major: Berlin 2019.
-Astralis are the first ever organization to win 3 majors in a row.
-Astralis went undefeated in 31 LAN matches on Nuke, with the streak beginning in February 2018 and ending in May 2019. This is, by far, the most impressive streak of any team ever in Counter-Strike, much better and more remarkable than NiP's 87-0 LAN streak and their 32-0 LAN streak on nuke, as NiP was playing in an era where the top Counter-Strike teams got paid €300/month. This is not up for debate.
-Astralis won the Intel Grand Slam Season 1 and $1,000,000 after claiming victory at DH Masters Marseille 2018, ESL Pro League Season 7 Finals, IEM Season XIII Chicago and ESL Pro League Season 8 Finals. They won it over the course of nine events in the most competetive era Counter-Strike had ever seen, and it was thus much more impressive than the fluke Liquid would get at a later date.
-device, dupreeh, Xyp9x, gla1ve and Magisk featured in HLTV's Top 20 Players of 2018. This is the first and only time in the ranking's history that all members of a lineup made the list in the same year. This feat is very notable as the HLTV rankings are clearly biased against Astralis. (See previous paragraph.)
-Astralis reigned as #1 for 406 days on HLTV's Team Ranking before being dethroned by Team Liquid. This is, by far, the longest period at the top since the ranking began in late 2015.
-Astralis as a team have reigned as #1 on the HLTV rankings for 104 weeks in total and the core of device, dupreeh and xyp9x have reigned as #1 for 106 weeks total. This is, by far, the most of any organization or core.
-The legendary core of device, dupreeh and xyp9x is the only core to have never dropped out of the HLTV top30. The lowest they ever dropped was #15.
-The legendary core of device, dupreeh and xyp9x is the only core to have been ranked as #1 for at least 1 week every year since the rankings were made. (2015-2020)
-The legendary core of device, dupreeh and xyp9x is the longest persisting core ever, having lasted a total of 2505 days as of 28-05-2020 as xyp9x took leave and the core was split up.
Got a fkn 0.3 rating (Worse than Botian) against 1 man team (ZywOotality)
Got a 0.48 rating against NoChance! Just like he has NoChance to win a major in this universe! (Get it?)
