The ranking system in CS: GO is a mechanic that allows you to determine the best of the best. Let's understand what it is and how it works.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is a competitive shooter that involves defeating a real, live opponent. Sooner or later, every player who enters CS: GO gets tired of playing in casual mode. He feels that his playing skill has grown a little, and it's time to move on. What to do in this case? Go to matchmaking, of course! How is it different from the normal game mode? The fact that it can progress and play with opponents equal to oneself in skill is the same ranking system of the CS.

Revealing the details of the CS: GO rank system
For the player to understand what skill level he is at, Valve added progress levels to their product. If you are wondering how many titles there are in CS: GO, then you can answer it briefly - 18.

All CS: GO titles
And now in detail. Conventionally, they can be divided into three groups. The first one (left column in the picture) is the title for beginners in CS. In the common people, they are called "silvers". Simply put, these are the guys who are just learning to play, do not go into the details of the game, and just have a good time in matches, mastering weapons, maps, and movement in CS: GO. They don't question at all how many wins it takes to move up the ranks in CS: GO. Do not try to achieve team play at this level.

Ranks from Gold Nova I to Master Guardian Elite - this is already an application for a good level of play. At this level of ranks in CS: GO, people, start to shoot well, know the maps well and also try to learn teamwork. Any tactics or ability to throw grenades at this level is still hard to find. But these people very often sit on DM servers, so many of them already hit the head well, and this is one of the key victory factors. They have a good understanding of how ranks and the ranking system work in CS: GO. And if there are no questions with titles up to LEM (Legendary Eagle Master), then getting a Supreme, and even more so Global Elite, is a truly great achievement for someone who has recently started playing Counter-Strike.

To get the highest rank, you need to work long and hard on your skills in the game. It may seem to many that reaching the Global Elite is not so difficult, but in reality, it turns out that there are not so many Globals.

Those. no matter what, Global Elite is still a prestigious title in the world, so if you managed to achieve it, you can be proud of yourself!

In 2017, Valve added another mode to the game that allows you to play 2v2. It is called Wingman and it is also possible to get a rank in Counter-Strike with a friend who is interested in CS.

ELO system in CS: GO
Third-party platforms like FACEIT use a different progression system. There are 10 skill levels in total, where 1 is the lowest and 10 is the highest skill level. Each level corresponds to a certain number of points, which are called ELO (the same ELO ranking system in CS: GO).

For example, to get the 6th level on FACEIT, you need to score 1401 points, and for the 7th 1551. On average, 25 points are given for a victory over an opponent, and the same amount is taken away for a loss, respectively. If your opponent is stronger, then ELO will be given to you more. It follows from this diagram that to advance from level 6 to level 7, you need to win at least 6 games in a row.

To get the coveted level 10 on FACEIT and get into the master league, you need to score 2000 points. At first glance, it seems that this is a very small number, but do not forget what we said above: the system tries to keep you in the region of 50% wins. This means that losses cannot be avoided. All we can advise in this case is not to give up and never give up. For diligent players, fate is always favorable.
