So when do these wins start counting from, because I got nothing at the minute, but I've won loads of classic comp games in cs:go.

So, after playing 2 games today, I saw at the end that I have 16 wins. If you need at least 10 to even get a rank, why the heck am I at "Golden Nova Master" already?! En Ex has 24 wins and is at the same rank ...

This system seems to be screwed up ...

I really love these rank names.

I want to be the Supreme Master First Class Tiger World Champion Guardian Eagle Scream Bearer, and I want my logo to be a two-headed griffon holding an AK in one claw and the bomb in the other while being surrounded by stars and olive branches and Chet's beard.

I think the system isn't "wins-based", maybe it's "points-based", or "mpv-based", or "k/d-based". I mean: "rank A = players with X to Y points, rank B = players with Y+1 to W points" and so on.

The global rank acts like this at least.

The first 10 wins should be a trigger to let the game know you are a regular competitive player, to filter the other players (and thus, save space in the database). And maybe is used as a initial phase of data collection.

That is one possibility. Let's just hope for an explenation from VALVe ...

I really hope it's not just k/d based because you can be a very valuable asset to the team in more ways than just getting kills.

I cant even begin to count how many games I would have won had somebody not pressed F2 after they RQ from getting their handed to them. Hope it's not win based. In any event I'm glad they had some kind of update. Hopefully the new voting after RQ will be better.

Update:
I also think it's kinda broken. It says I'm Distinguished Master Guardian II which isn't even on that list yet it has the picture of Gold Nova II (The AK with the leaves). =/ I have been matched up with equal skill players so something is kind of working I guess.

Elo systems are not based on the number of wins you have alone. While winning is a factor, winning against a team of a lower average Elo rating than your team's will yield less of a point gain than defeating a team with a higher average Elo rating than your team's.

Assuming the original post's data has anything to do with the ranks besides the actual name, then it would logically appear that these ranks are based on ELO. ELO is not solely based on wins alone. However, in order to qualify for an emblem you must have at least 10 wins even though your ranking isn't based on wins. If you have 10 wins and the next guy has 100 wins, it's very possible for both of you to have the same ranking, even if the win/loss ratio for him is 3.00 and yours is 0.50.
