WWG CSGO Team Rankings 11/28/2016

    95.79

    The No. 1 team in the world struggled a bit, running into a slew of hungry teams in the final week of ECS Season 2 European play. With a berth to the finals on the line, NiP dropped two maps to red-hot No. 7 Astralis and split with No. 4 FaZe Clan, No. 11 G2, and No. 12 mousesports. Although it looks a little ugly on paper, these online wins and losses doesn't hurt nor help teams as much as playing on LAN. But guess what? NiP will see Astralis once again in the ELeague Season 2 Quarterfinals on Wednesday, November 30.

  • 2 3 SK Gaming
    Last 10: 6-4 SOS: 0.516 RPI: 0.581
    93.18

    SK Gaming is holding on firmly to the No. 2 spot in the WWG CS:GO Team Rankings this period. Although idle this past week, there is a lot on the line for the Brazilians coming up as they take on No. 5 dignitas in the quarterfinals of the ELeague Season 2 playoffs. If you remember what happened to these guys last year, they want to win it all. Bad.

    93.18
  • 3 2 Virtus.pro
    Last 10: 4-6 SOS: 0.555 RPI: 0.545
    91.64

    Everybody says it, so it must be true. Virtus.pro doesn't care about on-line play. They didn't make it to the ECS European Playoffs for Season 2, which means if they want to play in Season 3, they will have to go through a qualification process. Just like NiP, Virtus.pro dropped both maps against Astralis which doomed them for any ECS advancement. This squad must have wanted to rest for their ELeague Season 2 Quarterfinal playoff match against FaZe Clan on November 30.

    91.64
  • 4 3 4 FaZe Clan
    Last 10: 6-4 SOS: 0.54 RPI: 0.548
    90.73

    FaZe Clan has picked the right time to start playing well. 11-4 in their last 15 matches, FaZe has taken maps off of NiP, No. 13 GODSENT, and outright beat G2 to win a spot in the $750,000 ECS Season 2 playoffs taking place in Anaheim, California December 7-9. But first, this highly motivated team will see Season 2 ELeague Playoff Quarterfinal action on November 30 when they take on the No. 3 team in the world, Virtus.pro.

    90.73
  • 6 1 15 Team EnVyUs
    Last 10: 5-5 SOS: 0.536 RPI: 0.556
    90.42

    With no ELeague Playoffs for this squad in Season 2, EnVyUs shifted their focus to making it to the ECS Season 2 Playoffs -- mission accomplished. Wins over mousesports and a match split with NiP in their last two matches was more than enough to land EnVyUs on a plane to Anaheim, California.

    90.42
  • 7 6 1 Astralis
    Last 10: 10-0 SOS: 0.557 RPI: 0.556
    90.16

    Once a star in retrograde, Astralis has changed direction and is streaking across the sky destroying everything in its path. 10-0 in their last 10 matches, GODSENT, G2, NiP. Virtus.pro and fnatic have all been burned as Astralis qualified for both the ECS Season 2 Playoffs and the ELeague Season 2 Playoffs. Is Astralis for real? We are going to find out in the next two weeks.

    90.16
  • 8 4 9 Immortals
    Last 10: 7-3 SOS: 0.501 RPI: 0.566
    88.31

    The Immortals found out that while they are very good, they still have some work to do. They did qualify for the playoffs for Season 2 of the ECS and will look to solidify themselves as a constant force late in tournament play. Henrique "hen1" Teles is making a case for best player in the world with a +653 K/D difference in the past three months.

    88.31
  • 9 5 Natus Vincere
    Last 10: 4-6 SOS: 0.548 RPI: 0.515
    87.74

    Natus Vincere has some real problems. The fact that they can't win with the best player in the world being on the team should be sounding alarm bells to upper management. What is it that happens when Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev comes onto a team? That is the question that needs to be answered.

    87.74
  • 10 2 11 Cloud9
    Last 10: 7-3 SOS: 0.517 RPI: 0.579
    86.68

    Have the boys from Cloud9 hit the Cirrus range in terms of what they can do? After their astonishing win at the ESL Pro League Season 3 Finals, fans and pundits were hoping that North American Counter-Strike was finally making the breakthrough they had so desperately hoped. However, after failing to get out of the group stage at DreamHack Winter and a poor showing at IEM Oakland, the word on Cloud9 is that maybe they are just a very good team, but not elite.

    86.68
  • 12 3 12 mousesports
    Last 10: 4-6 SOS: 0.551 RPI: 0.529
    84.01

    Splitting maps, albeit online, with NiP and G2 while outright sweeping dignitas is a recipe for a nice three spot jump in the rankings. Mousesports was one of six teams that were tied for the final spot in the ECS Season 2 Finals, but didn't have the ratio to get in. However, there is a great opportunity for mousesports to show just how good they are at the ELeague Season 2 Playoffs, when they take on OpTic in the quarterfinals.

    84.01
  • 13 3 18 GODSENT
    Last 10: 4-6 SOS: 0.516 RPI: 0.529
    83.76

    The house of Pronax is still searching for consistency, especially from its leader Not qualifying for ELeague Season 2 playoffs or the ECS Season 2 playoffs has really hurt this team in terms of being thought of as a contender and the biggest reason is the poor play of Markus "pronax" Wallsten. Whether it's the pressure of trying to keep his team together or skill degradation, GODSENT looks to be in trouble.

    83.76
  • 14 10 OpTic Gaming
    Last 10: 5-5 SOS: 0.514 RPI: 0.535
    83.50

    Having the chance to prove you are the best team in North America, OpTic found out quickly that even though they are a solid squad, Cloud9 is still the team to beat. Failing to get out of groups at DreamHack Winter was a definite step backwards. However, all that could be erased if OpTic can make a deep run in the ELeague Season 2 Playoffs this week when they take on mousesports in the quarterfinals.

    83.50
  • 15 4 7 Fnatic
    Last 10: 1-9 SOS: 0.542 RPI: 0.524
    82.79

    Fnatic was a team on the rise and then perhaps like the Roman Empire got a little too ambitious. They are in the midst of a seven-match death spiral that had they won, would have qualified for both the ECS Season 2 and ELeague Season 2 playoffs. However, it wasn't to be and now fnatic needs to find themselves or go into oblivion.

    82.79
  • 16 3 16 Heroic
    Last 10: 7-3 SOS: 0.524 RPI: 0.512
    82.17

    Heroic beat a couple of decent teams on their way to an International Gaming League 2016 Championship dispatching compLexity and No. 25 VG.Cyberzen. A sub-par showing at IEM Oakland last week really hurt this team's chances of moving up this week. Nikolaj "niko" Kristensen has remained a consistent force on the team, but needs some help if this team is to do anything of note.

    82.17
  • 17 13 Gambit Gaming
    Last 10: 7-3 SOS: 0.484 RPI: 0.523
    81.83

    You have to be asking, how does a team win a championship at DreamHack Winter and not move up? The answer is quite simple. It's who they played and how the other teams they played performed. Renegades, GODSENT, Cloud9 , and opTic all had terrible weeks which really hurt Gambit's Strength of Schedule and RPI. However, if everything goes back to normal in the next couple of weeks, what they did this week could very well be waiting in the wings to help push these guys forward in the system.

    81.83
  • 18 6 22 Renegades
    Last 10: 5-5 SOS: 0.512 RPI: 0.557

    See Gambit, minus winning DreamHack Winter.

  • 19 19 Kinguin
    Last 10: 6-4 SOS: 0.473 RPI: 0.524
    80.96

    Let's give a warm welcome to Kinguin and their debut here at No. 19 in the WWG CS:GO Team Rankings. This squad has earned their place here getting map wins over No. 5 dignitas, No. 18 Renegades, and a tough unranked FlipSid3 Tactics squad. Beating Epsilon, Penta and Rogue in early November also helps. Will Kinguin be able to stay in the Top 25 or will some nefarious team knock them out! Tune in next week, same ranking-time, same ranking channel!

    80.96
  • 20 2 25 Epsilon
    Last 10: 6-4 SOS: 0.492 RPI: 0.51
    80.17

    Epsilon is simply a solid squad that plays tough, picking enough just enough wins against teams like iGame.com and Space Soldiers, but also taking maps off of teams such as GODSENT and Heroic. Like many others this far down in the rankings, Epsilon will need to make their way into tournaments with bigger names and better teams if they have any hope of moving forward.

    80.17
  • 21 1 NA ALTERNATE aTTaX
    Last 10: 4-6 SOS: 0.482 RPI: 0.541
    80.16

    Moving up one spot this week, Alternate aTTaX is still riding the coattails of having played Astralis, Natus Vincere, and GODSENT earlier in the month. We need to see more of this team against much better competition to get a true reading of who they are.

    80.16
  • 22 2 17 HellRaisers
    Last 10: 8-2 SOS: 0.509 RPI: 0.488
    79.52

    The fact that this team has remained idle since November doesn't inspire confidence that they will last as a member of the Top 25. Having a good October and playing against the best teams in the world, looks to be the only reason this team is hanging on. Don't look for this team to be here next week.

    79.52
  • 23 2 21 Team Liquid
    Last 10: 3-7 SOS: 0.495 RPI: 0.489
    79.01

    The model of inconsistency we know as Team Liquid. Are they good? Yes. Do they have great players? Yes. So why can't they win more often? Simply put, nobody knows. This team needs some time off to think about what their next move is going to be.

    79.01
  • 24 1 23 TyLoo
    Last 10: 3-7 SOS: 0.484 RPI: 0.581
    76.66

    TyLoo was idle this week, but looks to do some damage in the World Cyber Arena Championship in Yinchuan, China where they will play teams such as VG.Cyberzen and Epsilon.

    76.66
  • 25 NA VG.CyberZen
    Last 10: 6-4 SOS: 0.488 RPI: 0.534
    76.21

    Another buoy team that can't figure out one way or another if they are here to stay in the Top 25. 15-5 in their last 20, map wins over Heroic and compLexity show that this team is at the very least, OK. We will get to see them in action at the World Cyber Arena 2016 Championships starting December 9.
