Another week down as the world’s best Counter-Strike Global Offensive teams continue to show why they are elite. It is one of the most popular platforms in all of Esports. Last week saw Na’Vi jump to the top along with G2 Esports, but this week’s rankings have plenty of changes across the board. ZywOo was able to lead Team Vitality to a runner-up finish in their last event, as they have made a big jump. Here’s how the top 10 CS: GO teams in the world stand.

1. G2 Esports (812 points)

G2 held down the second spot in the previous rankings, but three-straight top-five finishes have helped jump to the top of the current world rankings. Their lead isn’t by much with just 300 points gained at BLAST Premier Spring.

2. Team Vitality (806 points)

ZywOo has led a huge charge for Team Vitality, and they find themselves coming off a pair of runner-up finishes in BLAST Premier Spring. They came up just short of the crown in a loss against Complexity Gaming.

3. FaZe Clan (766 points)

NiKo and coldzera have kept FaZe Clan well inside the hunt as one of the best teams in the world. With three-straight top-three finishes, they are trending upward.

4. Natus Vincere (755 points)

Na’Vi drops off a bit following two 4th-place finishes. Still, s1mple continues to be a tremendous force for the team as a whole.

5. FURIA Esports (712 points)

FURIA has arguably been the best team from the North American portion of CS:GO. They have finished 3rd or better in each of their last six events. Including a championship win in DreamHack Masters and a third-place finish in BLAST Premier.

6. Fnatic (701 points)

Fnatic built up a lot of earlier success, but the summer has been rough so far. Failing to reach the finals of BLAST Premier only adds to the bad luck.

7. Astralis (661 points)

Like Fnatic, Astralis had built up a strong early 2020 resume, but bowing out early in both DreamHack and BLAST has them going backward. For the ESL Pro Season 11 Champions, the summer is going to be tough.

8. BIG (647 points)

One team taking advantage of some of Europe’s best teams’ struggles is BIG. Winning DreamHack Masters Europe was a huge accomplishment and has BIG trending up.

9. Evil Geniuses (647 points)

EG looked hampered by their failure in DreamHack Masters, but they turned it around quickly. Evil Geniuses defied the odds and took home the crown in BLAST Premier Spring.

10. Complexity Gaming (615 points)

Complexity Gaming joins the top 10 following an impressive run in BLAST Premier Europe Spring. They beat Na’Vi, FaZe Clan, and Team Vitality to do so. Three juggernauts, behind the leadership of blameF and k0nfig.

What has happened to Team Liquid?

Team Liquid was viewed as one of America’s best CS:GO teams, but two fourth-place finishes in the last three majors, have dropped them outside the top 10 in the world rankings. With cs Summit 6 up next, the action will continue to heat up throughout the summer.
