Master Guardian 1 CS:GO Rank | All you need to know
Is MG1 good?
Being a Master Guardian I puts you approximately in the top 33% of all players, which means that your skills are higher than two-thirds of the whole CS:GO community.
We can safely say that the skills offered by players of this rank are pretty good, but they are a bit short of the top-level gameplay (such as presented at major tournaments). At this rank you will already see the use of the most popular strategies, well-thought-out grenades and above-average aim skills.
Ways to improve from Master Guardian I
Gold Nova is history; you have entered a higher level. Here are some tips to help you climb even higher!
Try Headshot-only FFA Deathmatch
Community Servers offer a ton of places where you can practice your head aiming. Try this kind of Deathmatch as a practice or warm-up.
Practice your aim skills regularly
Even if you don't feel like playing ranked games on a given day, just go for some Deathmatch or Aim Map for at least a few minutes. Remember, practice makes perfect!
Learn to play with sniper rifles (AWP/SSG)
Sniper rifles can be the absolute MVP on some maps. Even if you haven't considered yourself a top sniper until now, knowing how to play AWP will definitely prove helpful.
