The excellent performance of Team Liquid, G2, and OG in BLAST Premier: Fall Groups already has its first rewards. All the three teams have earned considerable rank increases in the HLTV world ranking system, reaching the top 10 of the best CS:GO squads. OG received the largest increase after climbing seven spots up to the top 8 of the ranking, the best position in the entire history of the club.
That said, Natus Vincere continues to take the lead in the ranking system, impressing the CS:GO community for years now. All that is left is to congratulate the Ukrainian organization on reaching the final part of the Fall Groups, even playing four cards without their star AWPer s1mple.
Down below, we will leave you with a comprehensive stat breakdown for all these four teams from BLAST Premier: Fall Groups.
The B1ad3’s team finished first in the Group Stage and did enough to qualify for the upcoming Fall Finals. The overall performance of all the five players are between 1.05 and 1.15. However, we don’t take into account s1mple due to the small number of matches played. Thus, the Ukrainian team managed to go through this qualifier in economy mode, which is great.
Only Denis “electroNic” Sharipov has a big contrast compared to IEM Cologne 2022, with his overall rating falling from 1.26 to 1.07. But he is still second among IGL and 19th highest of any player, so everything is fine. All the rest players have standard statistics, including 1.15 for b1t (was 1.17 in Cologne), 1.14 for Perfecto (was 1.16), and 1.05 for Headtr1ck (out of the top 20).
Sdy is Showing an Amazing Stability
Viktor “sdy” Oridzev has not exactly been a standout rifler, as his 1.11 csgo leaderboard rating shows, but he has demonstrated amazing stability since June 2022. The player managed to finish BLAST Premier: Spring Finals with 1.12, IEM Cologne with 1.11, and the current Fall Group with 1.11 once again. In addition to this steady performance, sdy moved into the top 12 among all 59 players, which is a great position for NaVi’s fifth player.
Although the new G2’s captain is inexperienced and still has a long way to go, the team’s overall performance in Fall Groups was enough to get the ticket to Copenhagen and sneak back into the top 10 of the HLTV world rankings. This time, its superstar NiKo pulled out the team with Ilya “m0NESY” Osipov, who was the driving force with the AWP in crucial G2 victories against Team Vitality and BIG.
M0nesy Gave Out the Best KD
Ilya played the second steepest tournament after IEM Katowice 2022 and was the best on BLAST in KD. The difference between ZywOo, broky, and him is less than 0.01. On top of that, the difference with NiKo is also huge: Nikola has 1.13 and 11th position, while Ilya has 1.25 and almost 1st position. That said, the 16-year-old prodigy still has room for improvement in KAST and solo moments.
Liquid sneaked back into the top 5 of the HLTV rankings for the first time since 2021, when FalleN and Stewie were part of the roster. Climb more than deserved after having won over the past two weeks such teams as G2, Complexity, NiP, and Heroic. Their dominating 2-0 victory over Heroic was particularly impressive, fueled by extended stand-in YEKINDAR’s best overall Team Liquid performance yet.
YEKINDAR is the Best Rifler of the Tournament
After having 1.07 in IEM Cologne 2022, Mareks played at a higher level at BLAST and managed to post the second highest overall HLTV player rating of the Group Stage. YEKINDAR is the first in both kills per round (0.85) and the percentage of rounds with at least one fragment (56%). Following his impressive results, we can say that the rifler can really play even stronger than in Virtus.pro.
Last but not least, OG received the largest individual increase of any top 15 team, climbing seven spots up to the top 8 of the HLTV rankings. The three consecutive wins against FaZe, Complexity, and Astralis have been largely responsible for this important seven-position jump.
Degster Gave the Team a Huge Impact
Abdulkhalik “degster” Gasanov also contributed a lot to the team. The Russian player has the third KD in the tournament (+5.57 on average) and the second entry (+2 on average). Therefore, largely thanks to degster, OG successfully reached the BLAST Fall Finals via the Group Stage. On the other hand, his teammates’ overall performance in the event was in the range of 1.06 and 1.08, which doesn’t pull the level of the sniper.
