Csgo's ranking system
Snax | 
United Kingdom LFX 
Imo the way they rank you is absolute shit. I play faceit a lot and play with people who are mg2/dmg in mm and I play quite well. And then I go into mm where I am gn2 because every game I go in everyone is so shit and we always lose so I can't rank up and so I'm stuck at gn2 not because of my skill but the skill of my team. It should be on how well you perform individually. Example: I top frag EVERY game I'm in 35+ kills. That shows that I shouldn't be in that level as I'm performing way over that skill level. How tf would the game not see that and go "he's clearly performing way to high for this level, let's bump him up a few" Opinions?

My opinion is you aren't a team player. /closed /open I solo queue and don't take many of my games seriously and I'm still Global Elite(Well I was, I just got unranked after I got it a few months ago), though I set up my team with nades still. That is the one thing I always do when throwing, be a team player. If you get 35+ frags you probably go in third and don't even setup nades /closed

Oh boy, GL at DMG+ if you think gold nova is elo hell But fr, stop blaming your team and focus on your own game, i used to be kinda stuck in mge but focusing on my own game instead of getting mad about my shit teammates got me from MGE to LEM in ~20 wins (lost about 4).

Trust I focus on my own game, I learn and know a lot of popflashes smokes nade and Molly spots wallbangs etc. I know every callout on most maps. I've also been working on my aim too. I've even tried in game leading but at this level most of that is useless. Team mates don't listen to my strats or don't do em properly, don't know a lot of callouts and always shout at me when I say I'm flashing and they don't look away. It's fucking frustrating
2018-09-20 19:47
Get a friend that's AK2+ smurf with you. I remember I had a friend that used to have Gamers Academy classes, but still was stuck on silver 6 (lol). At that time I was AK2 and got myself another friend's GN1 account lended to me. I carried him up to AK1-2 and from there he went to LE by him self and stopped playing.
2018-09-21 12:05
If you lose your game, that's normal. Carry harder.
2018-09-20 19:43
The game is not about kills, its about rounds on the board.

Snax |

Ik not just kills but your score. Your skill isn't based on how many rounds you've won because that's all about your team not you personally. If I'm consistently top fragging and have all the mvps for stuff as well as clutching a lot (which I kinda do) that's should seem off
2018-09-20 19:49
I am not so sure about that, man. I want to remember reading about the ranking system on some forum a while back, where they claimed that the game does take rounds very seriously and to rank up consistently you should play 16-14 or 15-15 games. I think they said that it was to prevent cheaters to become global in only a few quick spinbot-16-0-games. Performance/consistency during time and rounds played show more skill in a player than the games you happened to top-frag. You learn more from defeats and close games than you do from for example a 16-0 domination. But, obviously I get what you are saying, the ranking system seem to swing a lot. You never really know what you are gonna get from it. Also, if you solo-queue (anywhere), you must be prepared for the undeniable fact that the common player is shit/toxic/cheating. That's why I only queue with my friends who I know are good players and we win most of our games.

2018-09-20 20:09
I get the struggle, bro. You just gotta ignore the shit-players and focus on your own game. If you are doing everything that you can to win but shit teammates are dragging you down then there isn't really anything that you can do about it. The rank doesn't really matter though, back in the day in 1.6 and source there was no such thing as a rank, you just played and tried to have fun.

Yeah true and I wouldnt care as much about the rank or the game but i want to improve so bad and i feel like im not because i cant rank up. Plus some of my friends who I am clearly better than are higher ranks than me and call me shit for being gn2. Now THAT pisses me off
2018-09-20 20:17
Oh yeah, I remember when I was LE or something like that and globals would make fun of my rank eventhough I had out-performed them completely and I could also see during the game that they themselves were awful players. I just laugh at that shit, haha.
2018-09-20 20:26
sorry, but if you are stuck with gold novas, you deserve it. I'm only dmg, but I've gotten two other accounts to MGE in less than two months, even though I was playing only a couple of matches a week AND solo queuing with terrible players.

How do I deserve it if there is no way to rank up because my team are shit? I can't carry every single game till I rank up can I? I wish I was unranked so I could get a better rank
2018-09-20 19:57
ok, another point to that is that I played my first 10 unranked victories like shit on purpose. On both accounts I went from silver to only one rank from my normal main rank. Point being, after a couple of months, you pretty much are on the rank you deserve to be EVEN when solo queuing in MM.
2018-09-20 20:03
I dont play MM since 5 months and feel so good. I dont care for the ranks, MM is toxic community, you can play like a pro, but its a team play, if there is even one toxic guy, it means loss. For example you are playing inferno and holding A, you are doing good, but your teammates are dying after 20 sec in B. If you say: " Guys play defensive......." , than they start to griefing and play more agro...... Rank system is not the problem, the toxic players are the problem.

It's a blend of both I think.
2018-09-20 19:58
At least you do it right by saying "play defensively" instead of "don't push" which often has the direct opposite effect. (The brain tends to ignore "don't" and other negatives.)
2018-09-20 20:01
At low ranks you have to forget you have a team, as they will not cover any angles you expect them to cover and so on. Act as if you are alone, and you will have a much easier time.

I do that most of the time but as soon as I die we lose the round. I dont like the fact that its basically a 1v5
2018-09-20 20:00
Some can get 40 kills by just baiting people,getting exitfrags,ecofragging so kills dont matter that much. Find yourself a team if you think you are better than your skill group.
2018-09-20 20:00
Playing with a team is a commitment most people won't commit to. It's a solution only working for a tiny minority of players.

I am boosting my friend from silver rn he is on GN2. I am hitting 40+ frags every game if there are no cheaters in the enemy team. We are winning 16:0 or if I troll a little with zeus and knifes then they can get some rounds... If you are good you can easily carry that low rank. Dont lie to yourself. You are either baiting, exitfragging, ecofragging etc. to get a lot of kills or you are toxic af

I am playing 1v5 aswell and there is no problem for me to win the game clearly. Its even fun to play with everyone on that low aim and gamesence so I can do whatever I want with them. I belive you can go up to MG2 without problems just by yourself if you are at least a little bit good
2018-09-20 20:05
Boosting service is good like T, you can rush and get 2 entry kills, which mean 90% win , but its really hard like CT if the enemy know a lil bit to rush.

I do think MM needs a change, and I actually think Valve might change it.. as Valve said they would start working on CS:GO more like they said themselfs, the state of CS:GO cannot keep on going more like this. But from that, to blame MM for ur bad rank, no. Just try to carry them play around ur team, it's not just about how many frags u got.

Don't take it like a flame. But IMHO LE is where soloQ MM becomes somewhat challenging because a lot of people trade and know a lot of nades. Everything before it can be carried easily if you "play to carry". If you struggle at this level, there's a part in your game you are simply missing. GL.

Not exactly. Player's score isn't the main attribute that influence your MM glicko value. It's about rounds won. The fastest way how to rank up is to abuse your team mates in the sense that find out at what are they competent at and then capitalize on it. In some teams your team will be able to kill someone when they decide to enter a site but then they got destroyed because of peaking or bad crossfire after plant. With such team your best bet is to take a back seat and plug yourself in as soon as your team goes in. You can help them to clear the site etc. but main goal with such team should be to get in the best place to clutch the reatake and your team mates are more like sensors for you to see where does ebemy comes from and how far they are. Sometimes you will have to be the entry and site cleaner yourself, because your team not gonna be able to entry at all but they will be able to hold after plant etc. . "Play to carry" is all about constant search for rhe thing you can use your team for to make you able to win the round which doesn't always mean to have 30 frags. And as soon as you find a way how to use your team effectivelly, which means 3 4 rounds where the success was definitely because of your "plan" you can always ask your team "I can make this work, but I would love someone to help me." ... There's a lot of jerks out there, but most of times there's at least one lerson that is willing to join you in your game to throw nades, trade or bait for you and they will be willing to die for your cause as long as the victory rounds are coming. Every MM match is more like psychological/sociological experiment and you are the researcher and you are in control of those white mice.

*knocking on the wood* It happens, but not every time for me. And if this is the case most of the times I chose a one group/person and then make them move with your own movement. Which means most of the times that you are around them slowly approaching an enter to the site (while constantly watching the radar to see if the team didn't abbadon you, lol) and nade crucial spots (for example molly fork, smoke under heaven) and then push with "let's go" into mic. Lot of times they will join and we are at least able to plant. But yeah teams with people who actually have no goal in a round is pain in the ass.

Yeah, I ususally go for the support role as long as my team mates are moderately smart and well coordinated in the team play. But if that doesn't work I go for a lurk role. But since aim and muscle memory is my biggest issue right now I can't really go for entry or the bigger plays. I don't say I deserve to rank up, I just mean that a person with bad game sense but good aim has it easier to rank up than someone with good game sense and poor aim, and that I would probably do more for my teams in higher ranks than in Silver.

It just takes time, I also top frag almost every game. from silver elite to mg1. I still get lose streaks sometimes. But i know I can still hold my own dmg or maybe le because I have been global before and I have played with friends who are dmg-supreme and still done fine. You just have to be patient and play for the team and always play for the objective, not kill
