HLTV has published the new world ranking list, the German BIG Clan could make 24 places good after the victory at the Dreamhack Open in Leipzig.
The renowned Counter-Strike statistics website HLTV has published the new CS:GO world ranking list. The ranking is updated weekly and the teams rise or fall based on their recent performances. The offline LAN events are weighted significantly higher than online games. There was only one change in the top 5: The French Team Vitality team managed to move past Evil Geniuses to 5th place and ousted the Americans from the top 5.
Astralis from Denmark are still in 1st place by a large margin, followed by mousesports in 2nd place. The North Americans from Team Liquid are still on the podium, but the current 4th place, Fnatic, is on their heels.
Na’Vi fears for the Top 10 Rank
After Natus Vincere’s recent failure to convince, AWP player Ladislav “GuardiaN” Kovács was recently relegated to the substitutes’ bench. The new addition to the team is 20-year-old Ilya “Perfecto” Zalutskiy. The Russian team had to give up the 8th place in the ranking to the FaZe Clan and finds itself on place 9. They will try everything to be able to maintain their position in the top 10 by changing the line-up.
BIG back in the Top 30

The BIG Clan team played their first offline tournament with the new lineup at the DreamHack Open in Leipzig last weekend. But the newcomers Florian “syrsoN” Rische and Nils “k1to” Gruhne felt noticeably comfortable on stage. Despite the fact that the local heroes were the worst ranked team in the field of participants with rank 46 and were treated as absolute underdogs, the team was able to convince with an incredible performance. The players around IGL Johannes “TabseN” Wodarz didn’t lose a single map and were able to win the final against the Australian Renegades in a sovereign manner. With their spectacular victory, BIG improved by an incredible 24 places and deservedly landed on 22nd place in the world ranking.
