I like the idea of world rankings.  My only problem is that after a while some teams disband and some rise in quality or newly formed teams appear and are immediately better than others.  It would take a while for the rankings to properly reflect the level of quality of the (then)current dota scene.  I can make a hypothetical if you need me to.

ffs kid pay attentiont to the arguments.  there are a bunch of no name teams in the top 10, just like the first time around, and all you yell is "Read LOLXXZZ"

Of course we can fucking read.  Thats not the point.  The point is, the ranking system is still a complete failure.

its not a complete failure. the system is designed to use settings where cheating is near impossible in order to rank attending teams. teams that dont attend, too bad. not the ranking-creator's fault. naturally, since DotA hasnt had way too many of such events, at the moment the list is somewhat inaccurate. but as i said earlier; the further along DotA comes, the more these events happen, the more and more accurate this list becomes. have a little fucking patience. and yes, l2read

Nice argument: Well the system ignores the majority of events, but that doesn't mean it's the creators fault it's inaccurate. Because after all those ignored teams could have attented to the ranked events. And it might be good in some distant future, but it's still crap atm lol. Present stuff when it's near completion, not when it's barely starting.

The inclusion of SK, VP and Mouz makes this a much better list than the first.

Nice, its a little off but still alright.  No more posts saying "1st" or "2nd", no one cares and it result in a warn for spamming.  It doesn't contribute anything to the thread.

My list
  1. Virtus.Pro
  2. SK-Gaming
  3. Meet Your Makers
  4. Evil Geniuses
  5. WolkeR-Gaming
  6. Rush3D
  7. XcN
  8. mouz-gaming
  9. Ks
  10. trNs
Something like this.

from your choices my list would be

1. virtus pro
2. SK
3. MYM
4. XCN
5. WG
6. Rush 3D
7. mouz
8. Ks
9. EG
10. trNs

I'd say no, but x6 has been doing quite well recently.  EG too.  They are so much better this year than they were last year.

i think XCn should be at least top 5 with VP SK MYM and Rush3d..

and +46 also top 10..

but sadly VP disbanded..

with Ns ars-art adn LOH join rush3d, they pobably the best team right now

Name one team that has kept a constant roster for the past two years...even for the past six month! There is so much moving around of players on teams, of teams disbanding, or recreating under a new sponsor...it really feels meaningless to try to establish world rankings.

I suppose one can argue that it's better to start somewhere and produce an inadequate ranking than no ranking at all. However, it seems like more than half of the rosters listed in the Dust-Off World Rankings are incorrect, starting with MYM (Fear/Ezy omitted), including two defunct teams (TPD/TrNs), omitting several leading contenders (KS/TEG/X6/XCN), etc. To outsiders from the DOTA community, this list would be deceptive, as they would never know any of the above.  So, I would argue that it can only do more harm than good, aside from the obvious waste of time by anyone reading this thread.
