fnatic’s clear cut CPL Winter victory following their solid third place finish at WSVG Finals made them the top team by almost all voters. The only hold out was Pentagram who has shown amazing consistency with two wins this year and solid performances in almost every event. Below that was the second place CPL Winter team MYM and WSVG winner aTTax. The surprise of both WSVG and CPL was Hacker.GM and they were rewarded with a 5th place. Lower down in the rankings Complexity represented the only American team while new look mouz was given a 9th ranking.

The American scene is in turmoil with the moves to Source. The reaction in the ranking hasn’t really been felt yet as there really isn’t a way to judge what’s left of 1.6 or what’s new to Source. Only time will tell but the past shows that Complexity is still the top team from 2006. Followed behind is Pandemic who seems to be given the benefit of the doubt with voters as they stuck with 1.6. 3D’s massive roster change, lose of Rambo and move to Source didn’t seem to be a positive combination for the team. JMC as the top placer at CPL didn’t get a lot of credit from the voters. They did move above EG though while the rest of the rankings remained very similar.

fnatic also claimed the top spot in Europe following the victory in the USA for CPL Winter. Pentagram and MYM followed close behind as aTTax and 69N-28E held off a surging mousesports on the back of a very solid team on paper. SK.swe also saw a rise in their stock due to a new roster while NiP dropped on speculation their roster won’t be good enough to hang. At the bottom, surprise French team from CPL Winter, aAa earned the 9th spot while NoA gave Denmark a face on the EU ranking.

Hacker.GM took full advantage of Star.ex not attending CPL Winter to turn its USA tour into a roaring success. After upsetting a few top teams in New York for WSVG Finals, they then went to Dallas where they put on a show placing as the highest Asian team. Project_kr was a step behind at CPL Winter and now in the ranking. Star.ex could have been a bigger story then Hacker.GM but never took the journey. XcN still holds onto the 5th spot as wNv.cn was a total bust at WSVG.

Fnatic�s early struggles since the lost of Tentpole have left the door open for Pentagram who has recently won ESL Masters and has been very solid. MiBR�s victory at SHGOpen has vaulted them up seven places as people seem to be believers in this lineup if fnx is actually playing. H2K has risen with their very good play at ESL Masters as well showing that this event has really become the center of play during this off-season of eSports. With the big events of ESWC and others coming up later in the year the Asian teams should make a return to the top spots

Complexity remains atop the US rankings but barely as they continue to slide. The victory at CSA allowed them to maintain the top spot for now. Pandemic coming off the rebound win at Buy.com still has question marks with their lack of ability to win CEVO-Pro. Turmoil continues to be the most consistent picking up second places in most of their events. JMC and EG both sitting on the Source, 1.6 fence hold on at 4th and 5th in the rankings. New additions revoltados esports and immiNent Demise both had solid play at either CEVO-Pro finals or Buy.com but neither had results in both.

fnatic’s recent form and quick recovery from the WCG 07 finals helped them cement the number one position in the World Rankings. PGS’ recent slump and their poor performance at Extreme Masters LA let their rankings rivals, fnatic slip past, but their domination in the earlier part of the year held enough sway with some voters to keep them above NoA who has been climbing steadily in the ranks. SK-Gaming’s new roster was a huge question in the voting with some placing them in the top three and others close to the bottom. They are bunched with roccat, who only has WSVG Louisville to their name this year, and emuLate, the surprise WCG Champions. MiBR’s new roster has earned some respect with their Extreme Masters LA performance and talented roster. Rounding out the top ten are the two German titans mouz and aTTaX, and despite all the controversy e-STRO remains in the top ten.

North American CS is a two team show as eMg and Turmoil battle it out for the number one spot. Turmoil represented USA at ESWC, while eMg represented USA at WCG. However, eMg’s performance at WCG and at Extreme Masters LA kicked them, for the moment, above Turmoil. Mug N Mouse for third place was a universal decision, but beyond that the field is wide open with the voters generally undecided about where the remaining teams belong.

PGS’ recent stumbles, at both WCG and extreme Masters LA, have ceded the high ground to fnatic. While fnatic stumbled at WCG a quick recovery at the LA Extreme Masters event stopped them from slipping in the rankings. NoA’s second places at ESWC and WCG push them into third in the rankings while roccat and SK’s new lineup jockey for position with emuLate, the WCG champion, behind the top three. The remainder of the top ten is finished off by the German teams who have stayed about the same in the rankings, a MYM roster that has been through some serious roster changes, and a new high skilled Virtus roster that has seen minimal event time.
