### Mistra's blog

I enjoy both Codeforces and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive , and I was wondering what would my Codeforces rating be in CS:GO ranking system. Well, I did the math, enjoy!

# The method

I used this CS:GO rank distribution to find out the percentage of players in each skill group.

• Silver I: 3.90%
• Silver II: 4.23%
• Silver III: 4.37%
• Silver IV: 5.21%
• Silver Elite: 6.44%
• Silver Elite Master: 7.78%
• Gold Nova I: 8.76%
• Gold Nova II: 8.79%
• Gold Nova III: 9.05%
• Gold Nova Master: 8.08%
• Master Guardian I: 7.55%
• Master Guardian II: 6.61%
• Master Guardian Elite: 5.24%
• Distinguished Master Guardian: 4.15%
• Legendary Eagle: 3.25%
• Legendary Eagle Master: 3.20%
• Supreme Master First Class: 2.64%
• The Global Elite: 0.75%

At the time of writing this blog, there were 21275 active users in Codeforces. I listed the ratings of all active users, sorted the list and divided the list into skill groups using the abovementioned distribution. If the skill group boundary was between two users, the higher rating was used as the lower bound for the higher skill group.

# The results

Here are the rating bounds for each CS:GO skill group:

• Silver I:  ≤  1000
• Silver II: 1001..1103
• Silver III: 1104..1167
• Silver IV: 1168..1225
• Silver Elite: 1226..1278
• Silver Elite Master: 1279..1331
• Gold Nova I: 1332..1376
• Gold Nova II: 1377..1403
• Gold Nova III: 1404..1442
• Gold Nova Master: 1443..1491
• Master Guardian I: 1492..1566
• Master Guardian II: 1567..1652
• Master Guardian Elite: 1653..1742
• Distinguished Master Guardian: 1743..1851
• Legendary Eagle: 1852..1961
• Legendary Eagle Master: 1962..2123
• Supreme Master First Class: 2124..2447
• The Global Elite:  ≥  2448

If you're playing CS:GO, did your in-game and CF ranks match? At least I've got a lot of catching-up to do in CS:GO. :D
