The cream of the crop

A few years ago, we introduced the ESL CS:GO World Ranking with the aim to expand our toolkit when it came to measuring the strength of professional Counter-Strike teams. We know that people will always have their own ideas about the current skill ranking among the best teams in the world, and while we are always striving for the best possible ranking, despite our best efforts to continuously improve it, it will never be THE perfect ranking. And that’s ok.
