EG Black beats out main roster in’ June 2023 rankings

The top half froze while the rest saw some swaps.

To provide a transparent summary of the ranking process, here is a breakdown of the Dust2 Ranking process:

Our team rankings are chosen based on a series of measurements where each team is allocated points dependent on where they rank compared to their peers. This point-based system puts all domestic and international results, HLTV ranking, the tier of play, and coaches polling into consideration. While we include the HLTV rankings to some degree, more weight is given to the select number of coaches within the scene that are ranking the teams due to their accurate ability in judging play outside of the regional matches.

#1 United States Liquid (EliGE, NAF, oSee, nitr0, YEKINDAR) (-)

Liquid was flat-out bad this month. An 0-2 start in the Challengers stage, close games to lesser teams, and losing to Apeks in the playoffs. All-in-all, a forgettable month and now a vacant seat in the lineup, Liquid has a lot of work to do. Fortunately for them, the rest of the region is struggling as well.

June Events: None

#2 Brazil FURIA (arT, yuurih, KSCERATO, saffee, drop) (-)

FURIA's May was forgettable at best. In reality, the alarm bells should be ringing. Four of their nine played maps ended with less than nine rounds earned, and their only win on the month came against Nouns. With an even longer layoff than Liquid, it is time for FURIA to start asking the hard questions.

June Events: None

#3 Brazil paiN (hardzao, biguzera, skullz, zevy, NEKIZ) (-)

paiN remained active as always, but did not maintain the level of momentum they carried into the Major. Besides wins against domestic rivals, there wasn't much shown at the Major before being eliminated. Once they came back to home soil, it was back to business. Ten of eleven maps went their way after the Major to help re-establish their claim as a top team in the region.

June Events: ESL Challenger Katowice

#4 United States Complexity (JT, floppy, FaNg, Grim, hallzerk) (-)

A blowout loss to paiN and quick exits from Paris and Dallas were the lowest parts of a bad May for Complexity, alongside an incomplete lineup with Håkon "hallzerk" Fjærli having Visa issues. With another BLAST event right around the corner, they'll have an opportunity to quickly move away from the slump they had, again without their star AWPer.

June Events: BLAST Premier Spring Final

#5 Brazil MIBR (exit, tuurtle, brnz4n, HEN1, insani) (-)

MIBR was incredible during their time while not at the Major, ending May with a stellar 32-9 map record. Qualifying for Gamers8 and winning ECL S45 were the headlining moments in a near-unstoppable month for them, one they'll look to replicate as they continue their ascension to the top of the region.

June Events: None

#6 Brazil Imperial (FalleN, boltz, VINI, chelo, JOTA) (-)

Imperial was barely active in May, playing five maps in ESL Brazilian Premier League, ending with a 4-1 record.

June Events: ESL Brazilian Premier League S14, BLAST Premier Spring Final

#7 United States Nouns (cynic, bwills, nosraC, cJ, MarKE) (+1)

After a successful domestic campaign, Nouns learned some hard lessons at IEM Dallas against top teams before bowing out early. With no events upcoming, they'll be looking to Europe for bootcamps in order to continue growing.

June Events: None

#8 Brazil 00 NATION (coldzera, dumau, latto, nqz, n9xtz) (-1)

00 NATION saw activity in spurts across two events in the month, ending with a mediocre 9-9 map record. Still, they won the matches they needed to continue their pursuit of a seat in next season's EPL.

June Events: ESL Brazilian Premier League S14

#9 United States EG Black (Walco, RUSH, Jeorge, junior, HexT) (+2)

We all knew this day would come. EG Black continues to impress in their growth, and with the main roster in a very weird state, the "Blueprint" roster may be the best source of hope for EG's CS:GO division.

June Events: None

#10 United States ATK (MisteM, Swisher, reck, WolfY, Jonji) (+2)

ATK was quite active during the month, playing nearly 40 maps in May. Unfortunately for the lineup, they failed to mount first-place finishes in any of the five events played in, something that players of their caliber can expect to achieve together. The good news is that the lineup is rather fresh, leaving plenty of room for optimism as they hopefully can only go up from here.

June Events: None
