THESPIKE.GG Rankings Update: October 23rd, 2020 | VALORANT NEWS

Last week, we released rankings that the community was quick to point could be vastly improved. Here’s our second-look at rankings as well as a chance to explain why some teams have moved, or even disappeared. The most important addition will be the results from A.W EXTREME MASTERS ASIA INVITATIONAL, as well as Renegades x NSG VALORANT Invitational, and adjustments based on the lull the VALORANT scene has found itself in waiting for First Strike. This update also means the previously released one, shouldn’t be taken into consideration, as it’s completely excluded from the history of the teams in our rankings.

The Asian regional rankings, now expanded outside of just Japan, feature a top two that you could have guessed from a mile away: Vision Strikers


Moving forward we will look to release the rankings more frequently and give you a better idea of the trends of the various regions. We are also working diligently to add more regions, and work towards providing rankings for every region in the VALORANT competitive scene. This iteration of the rankings sees the departure of the World Rankings as well, as much as we would love to provide those to you, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic we feel that it is much harder to properly rate teams inter-regionally. As always, if you disagree we’d love to hear your feedback in the comments down below. Who do you think tops each region?
