Is MG 2 good?

Master Guardian II is a pretty good rank; having it virtually means being approximately the top 25% of all players. Such players no longer have a problem understanding in-game economics, and their aiming and movement skills are at an above-average level. At this rank, you will already see a lot more “tryharding” players than the typical casuals.

Ways to improve from Master Guardian II

As a Master Guardian II player, you are better than three-quarters of all CS:GO players. If that's still not enough for you, we've got some tips that can help you be even better:

Make sure you know how to play with/against sniper rifles.

At the MG2 level, you can already play against some excellent snipers, so make sure that your skills are up to par.

Practice 1v1 duels and bombsite retake.

Pay attention to how 1v1 duels are important during pistol and “full” rounds. Practice this on Community Servers to have that slight edge over your future opponents.

Play lots of FFA Deathmatch.

‍Reflex and divided attention are essential in CS:GO, and you are probably well aware of this. For now, there is no better place to practice these aspects than FFA Deathmatch servers.

Stay up to date with the CS:GO e-sports scene and tournaments.

Watch what strategies and solutions the most popular teams decide on. You can be sure that some of your enemy teams will try to copy them.

How many hours do you need to play CSGO to become Master Guardian II?

We think the time needed to get Master Guardian II for the average player is between 250 and 500 hours. If you've never been exposed to any FPS games before, this time can be much longer, and if you're a Counter-Strike veteran, much shorter.
