Outsiders drop to fifth spot in HLTV.org's ranking after replacing n0rb3r7 with KaiR0N-
HLTV.org's ranking of the best teams in the world saw yet another weekly update. The most significant change is the regression of Outsiders, who dropped from second to fifth place.
The fall of Dzhami "Jame" Ali's squad has no connection with their results and is the consequence of a reshuffle, for which the ranking's authors reduce the number of points. Yesterday, January 9, David "n0rb3r7" Danielyan was removed from Outsiders' starting five and Aleksandr "KaiR0N-" Anashkin took his place.
The drop of Outsiders was the only change in the first half of the presented ranking. There were no notable changes outside the top 15, while the fall or rise of some teams is due either to player replacements or decay in points for previous tournaments.
HLTV.org's ranking is updated weekly and primarily takes into account the results of the last two months. Teams' achievements over the past year are also considered, with the number of points for past successes decreasing each month.
