WWG CSGO Team Rankings 12/12/2016

  • 1 2 1 Astralis
    Last 10: 8-2 SOS: 0.559 RPI: 0.592
    94.10

    Astralis has reached the apex of their climb. The new No. 1 team in the world burned through the competition at the ECS Season 2 Finals this past weekend going 6-0. Astralis was so dominate that opponents were only to secure double-digit scores against this team on two maps. On a mysterious note, this Danish team says they have found a secret to winning which they will reveal some time early in 2017.

    94.10
  • 2 1 3 SK Gaming
    Last 10: 4-6 SOS: 0.516 RPI: 0.589
    93.54

    SK Gaming showed the world that even with a stand-in that had only four days of practice with the team before the ECS Season 2 Finals, they are Top 4 in the world. Ricardo "fox" Pacheco, who last played for FaZe Clan, wasn't stellar by any means, but he did what he was supposed to do which was be a great teammate. SK's 2016 season has come to a close and the will next play at the ELeague Major in January 2017

    93.54
  • 3 5 Ninjas in Pyjamas
    Last 10: 4-6 SOS: 0.544 RPI: 0.581
    91.95

    Ninjas in Pyjamas was idle this week and slots into the No. 3 position in the rankings. When they last played on November 30, they lost to the new No. 1 team in the world, Astralis, 1-2 in the quarterfinals of the ELeague Season 2 Finals. With only two more ranking periods left in 2016, it appears NiP will end the year as a Top 5 team.

    91.95
  • 4 4 OpTic Gaming
    Last 10: 6-4 SOS: 0.528 RPI: 0.577
    91.11

    Hey Optic! Don't hang your heads. Making it to your third consecutive finals of a huge tournament and winning two out of three is an accomplishment worthy of praise. OpTic made it to the finals of the ECS Season 2 Playoffs, losing to Astralis 1-2 in the best of three and was the only one of two teams to score double-digit round wins on a map. This team will head to Atlanta for the ELeague Major Qualifier from December 15-18 still being considered one of the best teams in the world.

    91.11
  • 5 2 Virtus.pro
    Last 10: 3-7 SOS: 0.549 RPI: 0.573
    90.24

    The Polish squad was idle this week having played their last match against FaZe Clan at the ELeague Season 2 Finals, losing 1-2 in the quarterfinals on December 1. It has been a very disappointing ending for Virtus.pro in 2016, finishing with an 8-9 since November 1 and failing to qualify for the ECS Season 2 Playoffs while being eliminated from the ELeague Season 2 Finals in the first round. They will look toward the ELeague Major in January to start off 2017.

    90.24
  • 6 2 15 Team EnVyUs
    Last 10: 6-4 SOS: 0.532 RPI: 0.571
    89.80

    Making it to the ECS Season 2 Finals, EnVyUs made it out of a tough group taking down Immortals and dignitas on their way to meeting OpTic Gaming in semifinals. In that semifinals, OpTic exposed EnVyUs, on the terrorist side of Overpass, ultimately beating them 3-16 on the map. This French squad has made huge strides in 2016 and will look to work some things out as they strive to be a Top 4 team in the world.

    89.80
  • 7 1 7 FaZe Clan
    Last 10: 4-6 SOS: 0.536 RPI: 0.57
    89.58

    Knocked out of the ECS Season 2 Finals by Astralis in group play has to hurt a little. This team was looking to make a run at a Top 2 spot in the world and had every opportunity to do so. However, it wasn't to be as FaZe dropped matches to both Astralis and OpTic during group play. FaZe will head to Atlanta, Georgia from December 15-18 to play in the ELeague Major Qualifier where they will take on Cloud9 in the first round.

    89.58
  • 8 1 NA Dignitas
    Last 10: 4-6 SOS: 0.535 RPI: 0.567
    88.92

    Playing with a stand-in is never easy, but dignitas played valiantly. With "Valdemar "valde" Bjorn playing in the place of Emil "Magiskb0Y" Reif, it was expected that they would have a tough time of it at the ECS Season 2 Finals. They had a chance to make it out of group play, taking on SK Gaming who also had a stand-in, but eventually lost 1-2 which eliminated the squad from playoff contention. Like 15 other teams, dignitas will head to the ELeague Qualifer where they will play Team Spirit in the first round.

    88.92
  • 9 13 Immortals
    Last 10: 5-5 SOS: 0.497 RPI: 0.564
    88.69

    In one of the most exciting matchups of the year, Immortals and SK Gaming locked horns in an elimination game in Group B of the ECS Season 2 Finals. While it was a competitive match, SK Gaming was clearly superior, winning the contest 2-0, knocking their countrymen out of the tournament. Next up for the Immortals is their opening round match of the ELeague Major Qualifier where they will take on EnVyUs.

    88.69
  • 10 1 9 Cloud9
    Last 10: 4-6 SOS: 0.524 RPI: 0.566
    88.25

    The clouds are a little dark and gloomy for this North American squad. After their ESL Pro League Season 4 Finals championship, fans and pundits alike thought that this was the time of the next great North American team. They were right, but it was not the team they thought. Cloud9 went 0-2 BBQ dropping matches to both FaZe and OpTic. The boys of C9 will have a chance to exact revenge as they have drawn FaZe in the opening round of the ELeague Major Qualifier.

    88.25
  • 11 1 6 Natus Vincere
    Last 10: 4-6 SOS: 0.54 RPI: 0.558
    86.90

    This team drops out of the Top 10 for the first time since the WWG CS:GO Team Rankings went live. Idle since November 17, look for this team to continue to slide down the ladder as they will not play again until 2017 whent hey head to Atlanta for the ELeague Major.

    86.90
  • 13 2 14 mousesports
    Last 10: 4-6 SOS: 0.533 RPI: 0.544
    83.84

    After losing to OpTic Gaming in the first round of the ELeague Season 2 Finals, some people have written off mousesports as a serious contender. They once were in the midst of a 10-match losing streak in mid-November, but turned it around somewhat by splitting with G2 and beating dignitas in ECS Season 2 regular season play. mousesports has been given a gift, however, as they have drawn HellRaisers in the opening round of the ELeague Major Qualifier.

    83.84
  • 14 1 17 GODSENT
    Last 10: 3-7 SOS: 0.514 RPI: 0.543
    83.62

    GODSENT needs to start praying and fast. Losing to teams like Rogue (no offense) is a telling sign of where this team is at right now. Markus "pronax" Wallsten has fallen from the sky and landed hard in terms of his play. He has struggled greatly and if he can't turn his play around may need to remove himself as a player and simply continue on as an owner. GODSENT will get G2 in the first round of the ELeague Major Qualifier.

    83.62
  • 15 3 23 Renegades
    Last 10: 5-5 SOS: 0.489 RPI: 0.542
    83.41

    The Renegades drop three spots here mostly due to the fact that they have been idle since November 26 and their matches they have played against teams such as TyLoo, MVP Project, and Winterfox are dragging down their Strength of Schedule component. Next up for the Renegades is the ELeague Major Qualifier where they will play NiP in the first round. Good luck.

    83.41
  • 16 1 12 Gambit Gaming
    Last 10: 7-3 SOS: 0.478 RPI: 0.537
    82.39

    In November, Gambit had played a very nice schedule with teams such as Cloud9, OpTic, and GODSENT on the slate. However, since they have been idle, this team's ability to climb is directly related to how other teams perform. In order to have any upward mobility, Gambit needs Cloud9, GODSENT, and Kinguin to play well.

    82.39
  • 17 1 10 Fnatic
    Last 10: 1-9 SOS: 0.537 RPI: 0.534
    81.79

    A team in shambles, but has "Legend" status because of how they played last July, fnatic will sit back and await the end of the ELeague Major Qualification process so that they know who the field of 16 teams will be in January. If fnatic does not play well at the Major, look for a major roster shakeup.

    81.79
  • 18 19 Heroic
    Last 10: 7-3 SOS: 0.504 RPI: 0.531
    81.21

    Heroic will end 2016 on a decidedly average note. This is another team with talent, but will need more time to figure things out if they want to start the 2017 season on the right foot.

    81.21
  • 19 4 22 HellRaisers
    Last 10: 8-2 SOS: 0.498 RPI: 0.529
    80.83

    HellRaisers will have a great opportunity at the ELeague Major Qualifier when they take on mousesports in the first round. HellRaisers will also be looking to secure a spot at the DreamHack Masters Las Vegas tournament playing in the online qualifier on January 9th. They've put themselves in a good position, now they just need to win.

    80.83
  • 20 16 Team Liquid
    Last 10: 3-7 SOS: 0.471 RPI: 0.527
    80.46

    Really nothing to see here except once again the "Legend" status attached to a team in free fall. Liquid has a lot to prove at the ELeague Major next January.

    80.46
  • 21 NA TyLoo
    Last 10: 6-4 SOS: 0.484 RPI: 0.522
    79.57

    The votes are in and TyLoo simply isn't the team people thought they were. Dropping matches to teams such as iGame.com isn't a great sign. TyLoo is truly the big fish in a small pond and when they come to the big waters of North America or Europe, they get swallowed up. TyLoo will play OpTic Gaming in the first round of the ELeague Major Qualifier where it is very likely they will be crushed.

    79.57
  • 22 24 Epsilon
    Last 10: 9-1 SOS: 0.496 RPI: 0.52
    79.22

    Epsilon won a check for over $86,000 and the first place trophy at the WCA 2016 World Championships. While that is a very nice accomplishment, beating teams such as iGame.com and Born of Fire in the group stage isn't super impressive. However, they did get two good wins over TyLoo and VG.Cyberzen in the playoffs showing that they deserve a spot in the top 25.. OK Epsilon, time to step up your game and get into the big boy tournaments now.

    79.22
  • 23 1 NA VG.CyberZen
    Last 10: 5-5 SOS: 0.487 RPI: 0.512
    77.94

    VG.Cyberzen plays more matches that humanly possible it seems. This past week they made it to the finals of the WCA 2016 Chamionships, losing to Epsilon in the finals. Will we ever get to see this team make it to a tournament featuring the best teams in the world. Would be great to see in order to get a gauge and figure this team out once and for all.

    77.94
  • 24 4 18 Kinguin
    Last 10: 5-5 SOS: 0.464 RPI: 0.505
    76.93

    Being idle since November 28 and watching their common opponents all fall in the rankings, it's no wonder that there was a four spot drop in the rankings for this team. Kinguin is sure to play in another obscure tournament before the year is done, but really needs to look forward to 2017 in order to make a splash in the rankings.

    76.93
  • 25 NA ALTERNATE aTTaX
    Last 10: 4-6 SOS: 0.465 RPI: 0.495
    75.66

    Welcome back Alternate aTTaX. This team is in a very bad place as two players on the roster have called it quits. Kevin "keev" Bartholomaus and Oliver "kzy" Heck have abruptly quit the team stating in rock solid terms that they will no longer play for the organization. Could this be the end? Likely yes in terms of ever being ranked again.
