Is it worth grinding matchmaking for a respectable rank?
 | 
Australia alf_au 
Now don't get me wrong, I understand your matchmaking rank does not matter but I was wondering whether it was worth going on a grind to reach a rank that in the eyes of people who take rank into everything and for it to just look nice on my profile should I go on a grind. I was committed to this at the start of the year but didn't get past Nova 3 after a rollercoaster of results. I stopped and grinder from Level 3 to Level 8 in FACEIT and was happy enough with that. I started again on this grind after I thought I could do it. Still no matter how well I played or how many wins I got after a massive streak of both I'd lose and no Rank up. I thought I'd go on this grind again the other week and it's been good after getting my rank back of Nova 2 and getting Nova 3 my game doesn't want my rank to go from Nova 3 to Nova 4 and reach MG. The other weekend I won 8 games in a row, tied 1, won 4 more in a row, lost 1, won another 5 in a row, 1 more tie another 2 wins in a row and didnt rank up. I performed at the top of all these games except maybe 2 because I stopped playing after 1 day because I wasn't playing good. Is it worth trying to grind through the bullshit to get a respectable rank or should I forget about it?

That's one of my problems, I have like 2 people to Q with and they prefer to muck around not try :/

I only got 1 other person who plays properly but I haven't been on when he has recently and that's it... all my other friends play League of Legends and Rocket League and they re silver 2 so...

Discord? Or add people that play good after the game.

Mate about 4 years ago I posted on the steam forums for people to start playing with and made a group which had about 100 members if I remember correctly. Point is, look for some guys doing the same thing and make some online friends or something.
2019-10-04 13:59
Hmm i disagree. Didn't play for 1 year and got my LE back.... solo qued for about 2 weeks and got my global back:) if you're one of those people who think it's impossible to solo que in MM..... then you're clearly not good enough.

It's definitely challenging
2019-10-05 02:18
it just takes longer, this guy doesnt really want to seem "good" he just wants to flex the rank lol, so queueing with others would be faster and ideal
2019-10-05 02:34
I actually have 0 respect for people who have to climb or rely on other peoples skill to rank up.
2019-10-07 02:17
not if you and your friends are already the same ranks and you get better together. you're american, so you dont know the pain of eu players if you try to solo queue, full of trollers, people who cant communicate clearly/no english, etc etc. its not that easy or fun solo queue

If you want to grind to global (or close) find 4 good teammates so you avoid the lottery of soloqueuing

Be cool and positive each game you play even if your team is trash so you keep a positive image and once you meet a good teammate add him to your friendlist, play a few games with him and try to bond you know, be friendly. And each time you see a good player you do that so in the end you have 6 to 10 good players as friends. You play with them every night and make them meet each other you know. After a few days or weeks you'll have a solid group of good players and will rank up easily. Even more if you set some good teamplay move and strats

I don't want to sound like I have an ego or I think I'm a great player because I'm not. I go into every game hoping to learn, I don't get mad but I tend to be at the top. So idk what difference we have with playing good?
2019-10-04 13:20
If you can get faceit 8, you can get global quicker

Disagree, people in FACEIT know what they re doing. I have 2 people to Q with in Matchmaking and they don't try in cs and muck around a bit unlike me. But I can safely solo Q in FACEIT (after today tho got some real salty cunts on the other team who were winning and I was saying badly and talked heaps of shit, they had huge egos tho)

Faceit is really different in other regions faceit can be reallyyyyy toxic in eu but at least when you get to a certained level you get to play with decent players compared to mm
2019-10-04 14:11
I'd say DMG is closer to a realistic soloQ goal if you're just a good player. I live closer to the you know what region though...

I understand the only thing that improves with your rank is aim and ego (that's what my mate who got lem told me) and I can see it but I still want a respectable rank

Rekting noobs in nova - mge is more fun than tryhard in higher ranks.

Im ge for 2 years now played with all sort of ranks way lower than me idc about my rank but at this point i think my ge is like invincible, Im faceit 2.5k elo btw so yeah thats why i dont give a single damn about mm but nova 3 ? When you hit lvl 8 on faceit that should be like a tutorial lvl for you xD

Bro, I wrote up how many wins I tend to get and I play well... But I can fucking rank up. I learn from my games and all that shit and although I learn from losing before I lose I'm like to myself "I'm about to lose to shit players". I'm not a great player but ffs I'm better than nova but I can't get out xd
2019-10-04 13:57
Just go play faceit, don't waste your time on MM like I did for so long.

I'm GE after 1.3k hrs only solo. I dont have friends to play with(those guys only play dota,pubg,apex,lol,fortnite) Just mute and bait. eventually you will reach Global(assuming you really are lvl 8 faceit).

Solo Q all the way to global. I can't believe you did that :/ and baiting is a part if getting info to make plays but once you bait someone even if you find both frags on site they get mad at you for baiting them, also if I more my team I got no info
2019-10-05 02:21
They cant get mad if you say "wtf!! wait for me" magic words.

im already global so i only play mm once a month to Keep the rank otherwise i play faceit. You learn and improve alot more by playing faceit. Everyone in global is like a good lvl 3-4 player in faceit tbh. How cant you go higher than gold nova if you’re lvl 8 on faceit?

Mate I don't know, in the thread I mentioned all my wins and how I play in them and I don't rank up...
2019-10-05 01:51
You're not lvl 8 if you cant get to global in mm. The options are you got carried in faceit, you're simply lying or its a bait. Mm global is literally trash, and I've soloqueued myself with voice_enable 0 from lem to global multiple times (inactivity).

Hell no , you should play mm with your friends to chill and have fun , not to impress some hltv cucks.

if you need to grind for global its prolly not worth it global should be ez

When I say grind I mean only play mm until I reach my goal idk to me that's grinding
2019-10-05 02:21
highest I've ever been dmg (two weeks ago) currently mge, I mostly stayed in mg level, 90 percent of my matches are solo queue. 1700 hours. i may get around faceit one day when I have decent PC. btw with good trust factor, mm is indeed worth it

Yeah I got a solid trust factor but even with good trust factor mm can still be toxic

Solo Queue is the real shit 😎
2019-10-06 01:56
SoloQ ez global men))
2019-10-06 01:56
How are you not global? Au MM is easy, not like EU mm
2019-10-06 02:05
even eu mm is walk in a park for any decent player. no good player will bother with it anyway so all u gonna face is bots.
2019-10-06 02:14
eu mm hard for me, the finnish are very good and comms is an issue imo,
2019-10-06 02:25
any good player will not care about your mm rank. if you want to get a higher rank because you think it makes you look better, nobody is stopping you.

2019-10-06 11:08
You cant rank up when you play vs cheaters all time Its about faceit and mm You are not gamechanger in this scenario
2019-10-06 11:16
MM in 2019 is boring, go play some other game with mm ranks instead.

Lets say if you can't even get LEM soloquing, you shouldn't play faceit
2019-10-07 09:53
there arent respectable ranks in mm.
2019-10-07 09:54
AU ranks are kinda broken man All the globals, supremes lems and les have all deranked towards mgs-dmgs, there is no more full eagle supreme or global games no more Im Lem atm, been for about 2 years i shit you not. My friend, i havent seen another supreme or global, or have had a full game eagles vs eagles for about a year and a half. So how do i rank up to supreme if everyone i vs is mg-dmg?
