What is The Highest Rank in CSGO?
The Global Elite is the highest rank in the CSGO ranking system, and it opens the door for the very few “chosen ones”; there’s no higher rank than this. It is a rank filled with only the best of the best that the CSGO community has to offer, and becoming a part of it is one of the most difficult tasks in all gaming.
The Global Elite goes from including 0.5% to 1.5% of all CSGO players which tells you enough about their skill level and game experience, considering how tough it is to even break into some of the ranks where new players are at.

How to get to The Global Elite?
Getting ranked and climbing your way up in CSGO takes time and hard work you don't get it as your first rank (unless you are cheating). You will have to play a lot of competitive matches, and while it’s extremely difficult, it’s definitely not impossible. Here are some tips:
Make Winning Your Number One Goal
The number one thing you should aim at is winning the matches because that is the single most important metric required to go up, rather than chasing personal stats.
Surround Yourself With A Good Team
Surround yourself with teammates who have the same CSGO goals as you because if your dedication is unmatched by your battlefield partners, it’s easy to get discouraged and stop pursuing something that you actually have the potential for.
If you are an average CS player who wants to learn as much as possible about the game, then reaching The Global Elite might not be on top of your current priorities list, but that should not discourage you from trying to improve every day and pursuing it someday in the future.
However, if you are up there between the medium and the higher ranks, there are certain steps you could take to increase your chances of climbing all the way to the top of the CSGO mountain with other members of The Global Elite.
Practice Time/Map Awareness
Basic knowledge of maps will get you so far in Counter Strike Global Offensive, but if you really want to compete at the highest level, you have to become a master of timing and communication. Understanding the movement across the map is one of the most practical skills you could acquire, which will lead you to be able to predict where the enemies will be at a certain moment.
Reflect and Correct
This piece of advice works not only in CSGO but in life in general. Always try to play your best, and after you’ve made a mistake, which you will, look back so that you can identify what went wrong and see if you could fix it.
Fixing ten random things that your game lacks would make you unrecognizable, which is what you are aiming for if you want to transform yourself into a top-tier CSGO player.
Upgrade Your Gaming Setup
Just like wearing Air Jordans will not make you a better dunker, better gaming equipment will not suddenly make you The Global Elite type of player, but as you climb the ranks, you will want your performance to be as perfect as possible, so making an investment in good PC, mouse and keyboard could pay off big time in the long run.
Buying new gaming equipment is often quite an expense, so here is an idea – if you own some of the skins that are popular on the market, that might be a good starting point for improving your playing setup.
Learn From The Best
The best way to keep in touch with the latest CSGO tips and tricks is to watch the masters at work. The Esports scene is filled with a lot of crazy talented players who very often stream their practices, and training routines and share their knowledge with those curious enough to pay attention.
