NIP shift Virtus.pro in the top five of HLTV.org ranking
HLTV.org's ranking of the world's best teams received another update, as a result of which NIP displaced Virtus.pro from fifth place. This result was the best for the Swedish team in more than three years, since the previous time "ninjas" rose to the top 5 in early January 2018.
There is another change in the top ten: mousesports moved up to the seventh place, which was previously occupied by Astralis.
In the past week, AGO and Copenhagen Flames made the most progress among all teams represented in the top 30. The Polish and Danish squads have added thirteen spots each and are ranked #24 and #28, respectively.
The HLTV.org rankings are updated weekly and primarily consider the results of the past two months. Team achievements from the past year are also taken into account, with the number of points for past successes decreasing each month.
