HLTV.org is the leading Counter-Strike coverage site in the world. With on-site coverage of all major tournaments, they feature HLTV, GOTV, stats, demos, news, results, rankings, videos, photos, and more.
HLTV Rating is the popular statistical performance metric developed by HLTV which serves as an indication of players' performance and has been an important feature within the Counter-Strike community since its introduction.
Rating 1.0 is the first version of rating system from HLTV which was introduced in 2010.  It was based on three components:
- KPR (Kills per round)
- DPR (Deaths per round)
- Impact (A value based on number of rounds with multiple kills)
Rating 2.0 is the updated rating system from HLTV which was first implemented in 2016 and officially introduced on June 14th, 2017.  Compared to Rating 1.0, Rating 2.0 includes more components, namely:
- ADR (Average damage per round)
- KAST (% of rounds with at least a kill, assist, survival or traded death)
- Impact Rating (Updated formula based on multi-kills, opening kills, 1onX wins and more)
HLTV Team Ranking
Introduced in October 2015, Team Ranking is HLTV's updated version of CS:GO ranking using a point-based system. 
Top 20 Players of the Year
Top 20 Players of the Year is HLTV's annual tradition of ranking the 20 best players of each year based on players' individual performances and accolades.
Most Valuable Player (commonly abbreviated to MVP) is the award by HLTV to the best performer of an event who at the same time greatly contributed to his team's notable success and played well in the most important matches.
Exceptionally Valuable Player (commonly abbreviated to EVP) is a player who performed exceptionally throughout an event, standing out either by consistent high level displays or superb displays in big matches that led to his team's success.
Dust2 sites are outlets dedicated to news and coverage of a specific region that feed articles and information into HLTV.
