Perfecto: "I'm not sure Liquid and Outsiders deserve their current spots in ranking"

NAVI's Ilya "Perfecto" Zalutskiy shared his thoughts on the current placement of teams in the group of the world ranking leaders in an interview for the club's YouTube channel. Among other things, he considers the presence of Liquid and Outsiders in the top 5 to be undeserved.

I agree with the top-3 but not the rest. It's unclear and we'll see after these tournaments - Katowice and EPL. It'll be pretty much the same teams but I'm not sure Liquid and Outsiders deserve their current spots. Outsiders have a new player and they're trying to change some things and find their game. Cloud9 got knocked out. Same situation. They're trying to figure out what was preventing them from winning before and fix it.

The interview with Perfecto took place during IEM Katowice 2023. The prestigious tournament saw its group stage come to a close the day before, determining six teams moving on to the playoffs.
