Astralis have returned to the top of the World Rankings 4 months after being overthrown by Team Liquid.

The impressive form shown by the Danes in the past few months, including a championship at the StarLadder Major and good placements at ESL One New York and DreamHack Masters was in stark contrast to Liquid’s wretched form.

Having won 6 consecutive events, their past few results have been mediocre at best- with a group stage knockout at Malmo and a quarters loss at Majors largely contradicting their previous few months. The reports of NAF being considered to be benched have not helped them either.

With the difference now being only 75 points, the race at the top is anyone’s for the taking, with the Blast Pro Series Copenhagen baing the next event when we will see the two powerhouses compete again. They will also play the ESL Pro League during this time, where they will have more chances to catch up.
