    So recently I have been playing a lot more CS:GO, with this being my first PC FPS game that I try to play competitive in, the ranking system seems a little f%*#ed. With me being the noob I was when starting this game I was previously ranked into Silver 2. As I progressed through the game and got better and better I some how get deranked. With 40 wins now I am in Silver 1 and come first on the team in every game I play.

    Not to sound cocky, but I feel as if I am too good for the rank I'm in. If someone can help explain the ranking system to me or at least tell me what's going to help me rank up.

    PS: What ranks are you guys?

    You get a rank after your first 10 competitive wins, the rank that you will get first will depend on how many matches did you lose before you get that 10 win and on how good you did in these games. After you have a rank you can rank up by winning matches in a row and still on how good you did. But yea i feel you bro, sometimes i win 5 in a row and no rankup and sometimes i lose 1 and derank :Sit's dark. Good luck in ranking up! :D
    I'm Nova4/AK1 btw

    I think it goes like this. If your team win the match every kill you get count as 1pt each, but if you lose it counts as .5 pts. So to rank up fast you need to win and do well. You can derank even if you do well and your team lose since you're kill pts technically counts lower than it should be and it will be out pointed by your kills which may cause you to derank. It's still mostly based on individual performance but affected by win/lose situation. At least this is what i think it is, base on experience.

    So you have to get win streaks? If so that may explain a lot

    That is probably the most complex way to rank people, if it's based off of winning and losing then it cant be based off of individual performance considering winning is a "team" effort. I see what you mean though.

    I have moments in 5v5 where i drop 30 bomb (kills), carry the whole team but lose in the end and still derank. Though this have to happen a lot of times like 3-4 matches before the derank actually happens.

    There has been some gripe on many forums about the lack of transparency Valve has with their ranking system. In my opinion, it is nice to know how you are doing. I would like to be able to see a number associated with my rank but Valve has chosen not to do this. They only let players know what rank they are. I feel like this keeps people from stressing about their ELO or ragging on people who are lower/higher ELO. If you are the same rank, it can be assumed you are the same skill level.

    More detailed of personal progress like kdr and headshot counts, most favorite gun, etc... can be access if you buy the season passes. Season passes give you access to exclusive maps and record your performance.

    To be honest i'm quite unsure too after picking up this game recently. I'm around 27 wins 7 losses at the moment in competitive with top scores each time but I haven't yet moved out of silver 2 which was where I was originally placed, it doesn't really make sense to me. ^^
