Well, CS:GO devs protects their CSGO ranking system really well. They haven’t disclosed the way how their CSGO ranking systems work. That was to prevent cheaters and hackers from manipulating the system to get undeserved CSGO rank.

Yet, there are certain aspects that we can be pretty sure.

Winning and losing

In CSGO, win or lose is what matter the most. Shooting, using utilities, assisting teammates or sacrificing yourself for information all help you to win the match. So, winning will very likely improve your CSGO ranking.

Sometimes, losing may trigger your inner rage or frustration

On the contrary, losing will mostly guarantee a CS GO ranking downgrade. All your shoots and kills are pointless if they can’t be converted into a victory.

Impact, skills, KDA

Yes, winning or losing matters but it is not entirely how CSGO ranking system evaluates your CSGO ranks. Sometimes, your teammates are just burden and you can’t carry them all. Sometimes, you get a free ride off your teammates’ back while they do the hardest part of the game. That is when other factors into the game set in.

All You Need To Know 07
Good KDA ratio means you are beneficial to your team


The most apparent parameter of your skills is KDA ratio. When you manage to kill more people than your death, that is beneficial for your team. Your flash assist counts when it comes to your impact in the game. Assisting teammates proves that you are a good and skilled player.


The shooting accuracy also plays a role in calibrating your skills. In a bad day when you miss most of your shots, CSGO ranking system can’t give you a good mark on your performance. On the contrary, in a “good hair day” when you can stylize your hair like that of Twistzz and manage to land headshots in just a couple of taps, your CSGO ranking will improve significantly.

Level of opponent and teammates

Likewise, if you play against worse opponents and better teammates, it is very likely you may get a stomp and easy victory. CSGO ranking system won’t evaluate it high. On the contrary, if your teammates are not as skilled as opponents, it is likely you may have a harder time winning the match. Therefore, losing such matches would be less severe and winning would earn you more rank.
