HLTV's world ranking of CS:GO Teams
HLTV's world ranking ranks the best teams in the competitive field of Counter-Strike Global Offensive. The ranking is updated weekly, and teams move up or down based on their recent performance in competitive matches.
How is the ranking calculated?
The world 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 the last 10 LAN events.
All of that is predicated around a 3-man core each team is required to have in order to retain their past points. Online matches and tournaments are included, but with a diminishing factor which means they cannot make a big difference among the top teams, and mainly serve to put new teams on the map.
