CSGO Matchmaking may have its flaws but it is still the Go-to game mode for most players. If you are a casual player, it is likely that you prefer CSGO MM games, instead of third party matchmaking services like FACEIT, ESEA, GamersClub and 5E Arena. These services are good in a lot of ways, CSGO Matchmaking has its own charm, with the rank displaying right next to your avatar be it a Gold Nova or Global Elite.
Hackers are still at large in CSGO MM, and Valve has done little to curb this problem. But thanks to third-party services like csgostats.gg and Leetify, it is possible to at least check how many hackers you have played with or against in each game.
But hackers aren’t the only issue in CSGO, there are other problems at hand in MM. Due to weird queue times and dwindling player base, players are matched up against players with completely different ranks and skill groups. A silver elite may be matched up with Master Guardians or even Global Elites in some cases, which ruins the player experience.

The Global Elite is the highest Rank in CSGO.
RANK DISPARITY IN DIFFERENT REGIONS, WHY YOU MATCH VS GLOBALS AND SMFCS?
Regions with a low player base have the worst rank distribution in CSGO, and North America and Oceania are the worst affected.
Leetify put together a detailed collection of Data, to find out why this disparity exists and why there is such weird matchmaking in your MM games. Since the most common rank is assumed to be Gold Nova, being in the middle of the pack, it is surprising to see that not being the case in some regions.
In North America, Majority of the players are in the Silver Ranks, making up for more than 50%. While in Europe, Asia and South America, silvers only make up 30% of the players.
AVERAGE CSGO RANK?
As expected the average rank in CSGO MM is Gold Nova. It may stretch up to Master Guardian in some regions but for the most part it is Gold Nova.
Some regions, due to a smaller player base have to accept their fate and be stuck in ELO hell of silver. This means that the average rank is Silver Elite in Oceania and Silver Elite Master in NA.
HOW MANY GLOBAL ELITES ARE THERE IN CSGO?
According to the stats from Leetify, only 0.4-1.4% of players are Global Elites. Global Elite being the highest rank, is very difficult to conquer and with the ever present problem of Hackers in CSGO, it is even more commendable when a player reaches the Global Elite Rank.
Asia has the lowest share with 0..4% Global Elites whille Europe and Latin America Stand out with 1.4% Global elites each.
