What makes the Counter Strike Global Offensive so interesting is a very well built ranking system. In CS:GO, there are 18 ranks, in which the players are classified based on their skills. The lowest rank is the silver 1 while the highest order is the Global Elite. Most players stuck between Silver 3 and Nova 2. Ranking up from Nova level can only be achieved after long efforts. In the simplest terms, you at least need to master all the tactics that we presented here in our guides or you really need to have a inner warrior in your core.
So, this whole ranking gig is nice but how can you level up? In order to have a rank in CS:GO; you need to play in a competition mode. Those games take longer time than the ordinary matches and people tend to take them more seriously. Therefore, we suggest you don’t turn the situation into a hell for your team and for yourself if you don’t have too much of a spare time to play. In order to rank up, you need to win the matches in competition modes. How many wins you need to obtain is not certain. You get a certain point that you don’t see after a match depending on the difference between your team and the opposite team. For example, if you logged in a game with a player friend, who plays much better than you, the system will want to insert players, who play better than you in order to balance out. If the system does not do this, your unseen rank value increases a bit. That is why it is not certain how many matches you need to win in order to rise in CS:GO ranks. Sometimes it only takes 2-3 matches to rank up while it sometimes takes 7-8 matches.
If you lose games in a competition mode, your unseen rank value declines but again, you can lose value more or less compared to the average rank value of the team. In cases of draws, while the players with higher team average value lose some value, the team with lower ranks will earn points.
