DMG CS:GO Rank | All you need to know

Distinguished Master Guardian (also known as DMG/Sheriff) is the fifth-highest rank in the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive ranking system.


Is DMG good?

Distinguished Master Guardian means pretty much being in approximately the top 14% of all players. If you've made it to that rank, it might be a good idea to start playing tournaments or organizing your amateur e-sports team. In many players' opinions, this is the rank from which it is hardest to advance to the next one. It is situated between Master Guardian II and Legendary Eagle.

Ways to improve from Distinguished Master Guardian

As we mentioned earlier, many players find Distinguished Master Guardian to be one of the most challenging ranks when it comes to advancing to the next rank. Here are some tips to help you achieve Legendary Eagle:

Practice eco-rounds.

You know that winning one eco-round can determine the outcome of the entire match. Prepare some good strategies for eco-rounds with your team.

Get a team

Don't play with people you don't trust. If you suspect that someone is not very motivated to play or is cheating, do not play with them. It would just be a waste of time.

Take care of your mental health

How you think during the game is essential to the final outcome of the match. If you feel tired or have had a bad day — take it easy and reschedule your grinding session for another time.

Get better at clutches

Together with your team, practice clutches as a form of training. You may fail many times, but that's the point — practice makes perfect.

Optimize your CSGO Settings

Make sure your in-game settings and hardware are good enough. Check if your hardware and in-game settings are not one of your weaknesses or reasons you are losing games. And if so — do something about it if possible.

How many hours do you need to play CSGO to become DMG?

Most players who achieved a Distinguished Master Guardian rank have approximately 750 hours played. However, it is not uncommon to see those who have twice as much (especially if they started in one of the Silver ranks).
