Astralis the No 1 CS:GO team for an entire year

Posted on: Apr 23, 2019 By smartlaunch in News and trends,

Astralis have been the No 1 ranked team in CS:GO for an entire year.  The Danish powerhouse have been the best team in recent memory and they’re one of the best Counter-Strike teams of all-time.

Starting from their victory at DreamHack Masters Marseille 2018, the team began their climb to become the best ever seen. In their last 22 major or premier events, Astralis have captured 15 titles, including the FACEIT London Major in 2018 and the recent 2019 Katowice Major.

Last year, Astralis even won the elusive Intel Grand Slam championship, which is awarded to the first team that wins four ESL or DreamHack Masters events out of 10 consecutive events on the year.

Astralis look to march toward another dominating year by continuing to build on their brilliance since 2018. Astralis have to constantly stay hungry and avoid getting complacent, which is a problem that always seems to plague top teams. Their most recent defeat at BLAST Pro Series Miami should provide them with enough fire to want to come back stronger at their next event.
