NAVI drop from HLTV.org ranking first time in history
For the first time in history, NAVI dropped from the HLTV.org ranking. The reason for this was a radical roster change, during which the Black-and-Yellow changed three players.
Other changes that are worth noting included the return of Liquid and Virtus.pro to the top 10, as the rosters occupied the 9th and 10th places respectively. In addition, Apeks moved up one place to No. 8.
Notable changes included the climb of NIP and Into the Breach, which occupy 13th and 14th places, respectively. The Brazilian teams FURIA and Imperial dropped four places each and are now ranked No. 16 and No. 19, respectively.
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.
