Competitive skill groups reset in August 1 CS: GO update

The latest CS: GO update has brought about some changes to the CS: GO competitive skill groups. Skill groups will undergo recalibration after the latest update hides all players’ skill group. 

To get a proper understanding of the player base’s skill group, all players have their ranks hidden. Players need to win at least one competitive match to unlock their ranks. Valve says most players will see slight changes in their ranks, but some might remain at their previous ranks. 

When you launch CS:GO, you’ll notice that your Skill Group is not displayed–you’ll have to win one more match to reveal your Skill Group. Most of you will notice a change to your Skill Group, but some of you may find that you were already in the right place.

Occasionally, the developer resets competitive ranks in order to provide the optimal playing conditions in competitive matches. For players, this move is a positive step forward as they will no longer feel they are matched up against higher skilled opponents and vice versa.

The rank reset is a small change, but one that affects the entire playerbase. Even though the reset was not a part of the official patch notes, it was still noteworthy for Valve to include it in a follow-up tweet. 

The August 1 CS: GO update brings a few changes to the Ember map as well as some quality of life changes. Additionally, CS: GO data miners continue to find breadcrumbs of a potential shift to Source 2. Source 2 is a game engine upgrade that will supposedly bring about significant changes and improvements to CS GO. However, the transition to Source 2 game engine has been nothing short of speculation till now.

CS: GO is nearing up to its ten year anniversary in August. The game was officially released on August 21, 2012 and will compete ten years later this month. Valve might have something in store for the community during this celebratory milestone.
