As one can see, there are three newcomers in the rating, which are Enthusiast Gaming, NRG Esports, and T1. At the same time, the globally-known brands like Immortals GC, Fnatic, and Team Envy have left the Forbes' rankings.

What relates to the total value of the clubs, it is quite comparable to the previous year. Even though the cybersport industry is gaining momentum, esports organizations aren't growing 'vertically' and focused on 'horizontal' development. Also, the stricter competition doesn't allow for skyrocketing the revenues, while achieving top places is still possible.

Team Envy cannot understand such a rating, calling Forbes efforts a garbage

As the authors of the regarded rating weren't using the teams' official numbers, Forbes' rating is approximate enough. Talks with stakeholders, investors, and analysts aren't the full list of the persons that should be asked before forming such a list.

Thus, the CEO of Team Envy, Adam Rymer, shook the LinkedIn community by posting that "Forbes analysis rating is utter garbage." He explained how far their organization has moved in comparison to the previous year. Thus, he didn't understand why Team Envy's capitalization became lower compared to 2019 when they were placed 8th with $170M, while the recent 10th place valued at about $150M.

Nevertheless, one has to remember that suchlike ratings are the truth in the last resort.
