Do you play with friends with much higher/lower rank then your own in CS GO?

    While I prefer all my friends who I play with to be as close to my rank as possible, I noticed that some people don't mind playing in premade with ranks much higher/lower than theirs. What do you think about it? How do you think it influences the ranks of your opponents in competetive matches?

    My friends boost my rank in CS GO by playing with them with high rank and im low rank.

    When diffusing the bomb they let me do it to become mvp that makes me get high points.

    I enjoy playing quality games, it's their attitude and competitiveness that counts, ranks don't matter much

    Depends if you play for rank or for fun. I don't really care about my rank but i need to have a low rank account to play with some of my friends. A few months ago they updated the system so that low and high ranks cant play together. ( i think if you have a full lobby you can play with lower ranks now ). But if i play with some friends with nova rank we usually get matches against Legendary eagle masters and supremes and the nova ranks just don't have a chance so kinda makes it pointless playing with lower ranked people if you actually want to win.
    Its hard to explain the matchmaking and how i think it has changed but ill try and take some screenshots later that might explain it better :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    edit** no screenshots i forgot that ranks arn't shown when you go to your matches tab in csgo :slightly_sad:
    I think that old matchmaking they matched people ranks so enemy teams ranks were pretty much the same as the ones on your own team. now it seems to average out the ranks so most of your team will be playing above there skill level if your rank his higher than theirs

    Yeah, as far as I know when queuing with lobby you are pretty much matchmaking for the highest rank in your lobby, maybe a little bit lower. In fact, I'm happy the game no longer allows low and high ranks to play together in competetive. It coud ruin someone else's game, and also I no longer need to find excuses when my Gold Nova 2/3 friends invite me for a match (I'm DMG) :D .

    Most of my friends have slightly higher ranks than I do but we still love to play some competitive games together.

    I am playing with friends by using faceit, but I used to play competitive with them as well. They had better ranks than me so i got boosted a bit. But I really enjoy it and learnt a lot by this time.
