According to HLTV’s world rankings, Fnatic have become the best CS:GO team in the world.
The Swedish powerhouse is now on top of the leaderboard after HLTV updated its ranking. Fnatic overtook Natus Vincere, who stayed at the top for almost two months following their IEM Katowice title in February.
However, Na’Vi didn’t win the ESL Pro League season 11 in Europe, and finished in fourth place. Fnatic, on the other hand, won the online tournament. They beat mousesports, the ESL Pro League season 10 champion, in the grand finals.
This is the third time that Fnatic have taken the No. 1 spot in HLTV’s rankings. They were the best CS:GO team in the world when the rank was introduced in October 2015. Fnatic lost their spot to TSM three weeks later, but returned to the top by the end of 2015, holding it until Na’Vi took over in 2016.
Astralis are now considered the third-best team in the world, which is the lowest the Danes have been ranked since September 2019, prior to winning the StarLadder Berlin Major.
