How to get a Rank in CS:GO?

CSGO Ranks Overview
If you start with a new account, you need to reach level two (Valve is changing this from time to time).
To level up fast you can play the basic CS:GO modes: Casual, Deathmatch, Demolition or Arms Race. At the time you have reached level two on your CS:GO account, you are able to start your ranked matchmaking career.

How you can get your first CS:GO rank:
To get your first CS:GO rank you have to win 10 ranked games in the matchmaking mode.
In these games at the start, there is a huge gap between skill levels, but after a few games Valve will define your skill tier and the balance is getting better.

After you’ve played 10 games the CS:GO Matchmaking elo system assigns the suitable CS:GO rank.
Info: Valve defined a maximum of 2 wins per day, this means you need at least 5 days to reach the 10 wins and get a skill group.

How do the CS:GO ranks work?

To play Counterstrike CS:GO on a competitive level, it’s essential that every player gets caluclated to determine his skill level. The skill level in CS:GO is called rank or elo rank (Elo stands for Elo rating system and was originally invented to calculate the skill of chess players).

CS GO Matchmaking RanksCS:GO ranks are necessary to play fair games with equal teams: If you play a competitive match, both teams should be on the same level to allow a great game experience.

Your performance inside the game will be rewarded with a derank, uprank or you will stay on the same level.

Playing a good match in these balanced games, making kills, and finally winning the game, leads to a higher CS:GO rank! In total, 18 CS:GO Ranks exist, which are defined in 3 rows, which are called “skill groups” or “tiers”.
