This is just some reference for those who may not know about the ranks in CS:GO. As you win more matches during the competitive game play mode you'll earn some sort of ELO. I don't think as of now the ELO system has been made public or people really know how it works exactly but long story short... win matches, get higher ranks.

Here's a list of the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Ranks so far:

To get an idea of this system... I'm currently a Distinguished Master Guardian and my wins currently sit at 43. I did have to leave one match which instantly demoted me rank, not sure if I was right at the brink of leveling so the penalty was enough to demote or if leaving does demote you instantly(I'd prefer not to find out the hard way :)).

Dropped down? o_O Legendary Eagle > Distinguished Master Guardian though. Also if you did in fact drop down, it's probably because you lost 2 games against people severely under your rank maybe, and it gave you a bigger kick, than winning those 4 games gave back. That's how it goes in most games i've ranked in.

Usually... still don't understand it though, I usually play solo queue to get people along the same rank. It's frustrating :(
I don't even know how to get ranked in that game, I suck so bad at it. It's probably an Elo system, and runs very similarly to League's.

Well you know it goes off the score, not k:d. SB is probably right about the lower ranks winning thing. One thing I noticed is that when the bomb is planted, you get double score for everything.

Personally I dropped down from Legendary Eagle > Distinguished Master Guardian and won quite a few since then but have not ranked up. I have decided I am not going to care about the rank though as it won't matter in league play and to have a high ranking I pretty much have to play with 1-2 people on my friends list and ignore the rest.

Yep.... I dropped to the same rank after losing a match with a pre-made of 5 which were slightly lower ranks.

We're working on a matchmaking system at IGL for fixing the issues people are having with the (albeit robust) CSGO system (and also to make it more fun and compatible with league play). It should be released within the next two weeks as part of a regular code release.
