Both of the big leagues came to a close and had massive LAN Grand Finals showing exactly what teams are ready to bring it just before the major. There were a lot of teams that underperformed and that is reflected in a number of down-ranks in this edition of the Tier Rankings.
Reasons for Selected Teams (Movement or Roster Changes)
NaVi (-1): When you look at the performance of the other A-Tier teams, NaVi simply does not belong up there
G2 (+1): G2 showed a lot of promise recently and managed to make it all the way to the Grand Finals and put up a good fight against Team Liquid
MIBR, NiP, Fnatic (-1): Three formerly great teams dropped down to C-Tier this week because of recent performances, roster changes and inconsistency.
BIG, HellRaisers, AVANGAR (-1): Some of these teams should have been moved down earlier, but now they will settle into D-Tier unless they can show some good performances in the upcoming tournaments.
Additionally, compLexity has reentered the rankings alongside newcomers Team Ancient and GamerLegion.
Finally, both MVP PK and Ghost Gaming have fallen off the rankings as well in this edition.
Explanation of Tiers
These rules are not exact, and they are not hard and fast. There are always exceptions. If there were not, it would become impossible to rank teams due to the nature of the game.
