At the beginning of each month HLTV.org traditionally publishes the best squads rankings. Four tournaments have affected this year's first results: WESG World Finals, DreamHack Leipzig, ESEA Season 23, and, for those, competing for the first positions, ELEAGUE Major 2017 of course.

According to the January rankings, Gambit got three positions higher and is currently occupying the 12th place. Qualifying for ELEAGUE Major playoffs and retaining Legends status certainly played a big role in that.
