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 ).
