One of the biggest tournaments of the Counter-Strike year, ESL One Cologne, has come to an end and it has been awhile since our last Tier Rankings. It seems like the perfect time to dust them off and try to place the teams based on where they stack up in their region.
PLEASE NOTE: Different regions tiers are not comparable - teams that are in the Europe A-Tier are not necessarily equal to those in the Asia-Pacific A-Tier. Each region has been ranked individually and isolated from the others. We have also temporarily removed the S-Tier, reserving that for when the regions collide again and a 'King of Counter-Strike' can truly be named.
NOTE: Esports Kingdom is on the look-out for someone to help with our Counter-Strike Tier Rankings. If you are interest, please contact @GradyHooker on Twitter and we will see what we can do.
