    I was a GN4, and almost MG1 (only a few games away, actually) when they changed everything. Without turning on the game, I was placed in Silver Elite. What are your guys's story? Do you like or dislike this new curve they have implemented?
  2. I was supreme near the end of October. I didn't play for a while, and played again sometime in November, and re-earned my rank of LEM (pretty much getting demoted). Then I started playing again after the new year, and dropped to LE, then again to DMG. I'm pretty much back to where I started 6 months ago. I'll back up to where I was soon, and the CS:GO ranking system after DMG is messed up already. Skills are all over the place.

    TLDR: New system sucks and I suck too.

    Dang, that sucks :l Yeah I don't like the new ranking system either. Oh well, I hope we all get our true ranks back soon though.

    I was lucky. I got my rank the day after it happened and was unfortunately placed in Silver Elite, managed to work my way to Silver Elite Master in the next two games. I didn't have the disappointment of deranking.

    I think the change is fine actually. Previously, ranking up was way too easy, i ranked up twice in 2 games lol. But it was kinda sad to see my rank drop, I was GN3 and i dropped to GN1 in 2 games. But hopefully I don't derank anymore !
  8. I was DMG at one point but I dropped to MG1 and I'm afraid to play competitive now...

    I still can't really figure out exactly how it works. We win 4-5 games without ranking up, then we lose 3 games and I rank down. Can someone explain how this ranking system works ?

    newest elo system has changed my rank a bit but the rankings were too easy for about 6months. For about 6 months there was DMG's with global elite rank. I'm not good enough to be global elite really but i still held that rank for ages and was playing against other global elites that really were only as good as the average distinguished master guardian was. Since the new elo curve has come out its been harder for me to maintain the same rank, i keep bouncing between LEM and supreme . Also seems to be a lot more likely to derank after 1 bad loss than it used to be. hopefully the new system will remove all the noobs from the highest ranks :)

    In my opinion the new rank system is better. There were many too high ranked players. Now it is a little bit more spread. I was Supreme and close before Global before the new matchmaking. Now I got deranked to LEM but it is fine. Because I get players who are also the same rank as me.

    I lost a game 3-16, won a game 16-3, 16-5, then 16-5 again, and ranked up, so I'm not sure if it goes by how many games you've won (I also had 70 wins...).

    For me, I got my rank a week before the deranking wave. I was GNM, and deranked to SE. I just started ranking back up last week, and have gotten back to GN2.
