Coming into this tournament Astralis is the number 1 team in the world. Whoever predicted that North, the 10th team in the would be in the finals must be a betting god of esports. North had to beat the number 2 team in the world in the quarter finals, number 5 team in the world in the semi-finals, and then beat the number 1 team in the world to take down the whole tournament.

This has to be the craziest grand final I have seen in awhile. After Dreamhack masters stockholm North rankings are sure to move up. By how much only time will tell. I predict that North will be in the top 5 teams after the next csgo team ranking update.
