The BLAST.tv Paris Major saw a number of Counter-Strike organisations perform much better than many people expected, with the likes of GamerLegion, Monte and Apeks reaching the final eight at the last-ever CS:GO Major.
Team Vitality claimed the title in France, which has seen Dan “apEX” Madesclaire and his squad elevated to no.1 in the Counter-Strike world rankings.
With yet another strong performance and a third-fourth placing at the Paris Major, Heroic have maintained their top-two spot in the world rankings — albeit losing their no.1 spot to Vitality, who have now won back-to-back events.
The runner-up at the BLAST.tv Paris Major, GamerLegion, were the big surprise packet at the tournament, considering the international squad came into the event as the world no.37.
Since their second-place finish, Kamil “siuhy” Szkaradek and his young squad have skyrocketed up the world rankings, jumping to the no.7 spot.
Apeks and Monte have also seen their rankings improve massively, with the former rising 15 spots to no.9 and the latter rising 12 spots to no.10.
Outside of the current top 10, Into The Breach have seen their ranking jump sharply to no.15 in the world after their quarterfinal exit at the hands of Team Vitality.
