Here are some basics and tips for playing CS:GO’s Ranked competition mode.
How rank works in CS:GO
When playing for the first time or playing on a new account, you must win 10 competitive games to receive your first skill rating. During this time you can only play two games per day. So if you’re trying to level up fast, that early part is the slowest part of the process.
If you already have a skill group and take a longer break, you’ll need to win a match when you come back for your rank to show up again. The same applies when Valve recalibrates its ranking system.
For players who want to queue up for competitions with friends, remember that unless you queue up with a full stack of five, you can only queue up with teammates who are within five ranks of you.
CS:GO also features separate ranked competitive modes and skill sets for Wingman mode (the two-on-two mode) and Danger Zone mode (the battle royale).
