Supreme Master First Class

Supreme Master First Class (also known as Supreme) is the rank before The Global Elite, which is the highest rank in the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive ranking system. This is a rank for real champions, and the only thing that separates them from The Global Elite is the time spent on the grind.

Is Supreme Master First Class good?

Supreme Master First Class is the second-highest rank in the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive ranking system, and only 3.39% of all players are classified as such. Many professional players are still assigned to this rank, so there is a good chance that you will run into a player from teams like Heroic, Astralis, or NaVi. In short — yes, it is an excellent rank, and it requires some outstanding skills.

How many hours do you need to play CSGO to become Supreme Master First Class?

The rank of Supreme First Master Class is usually a sign of dedication and hours spent on training. These are players who spend a substantial portion of their time on CS:GO, so it's nothing surprising to see between 1500 and 2500 hours played on their Steam profile.

Ways to improve Supreme Master First Class

You are just one step away from The Global Elite. Here are some tips that can help you in your grind of being a top 0.75% of all CS:GO players. 

  • Be super patient. It can take you a really long time to get to The Global Elite rank, maybe even 30 wins in a row. This is a real grind; you and your team need to be aware of this and approach the game with patience.

  • Main one or two maps. Master to perfection one or two maps with your team and play them exclusively. Proper preparation will give you a significant advantage over the enemy team.

  • Avoid any distractions. Stay 100% focused on the game. If you are distracted by things like skins — consider playing without them and ask your teammates to do the same.

  • Consider giving up popular maps. It will be hard for you to surprise your opponents on the most popular maps as most of the strategies are very well known. Maybe it's worth playing a little less popular maps and win the match with unconventional ideas?

  • Regularly play sparring matches against other teams. Test your round ideas, strategies, and grenades against other teams before you go on a ranked match. Moreover, try to find teams that have an entirely different playstyle from each other; that way, you'll draw more conclusions eventually.

Watch your games and learn from them. Keep analyzing your games and try to eliminate the silly mistakes you and the rest of your team make.
