What is exact rank cap for competitive mode in CS:GO?

For example: I have two friends, a Master Guardian I and a Master Guardian II. What will be lowest rank that will be able to play with them without getting full team(when lobby contains 5 players there seems to be no lock)?

  • @Leothelion nothing in that link provides an answer to this question – Aequitas Sep 23 '15 at 12:02
  • well if you will read about rank system then you will came to know that with whom rank who can play or not which is shown in image also. And i did not said this is the answer. READ BACK, i said it might help. so either come with better solution or stop finding faults in comments.. Thanx – Leo the lion Sep 23 '15 at 12:41
  • What do you mean by "without getting full team?" I can possibly answer this question, but I don't know what this means. – Adam Sep 27 '15 at 7:38
  • When lobby contains 5 players the rank cap is not a problem – teodozjan Sep 28 '15 at 8:55

When I was a silver 1 I wasn't able to play with my friend who was a silver elite master. So he switched his account to his silver elite account and we could play. So you can play with a person that has 5 ranks higher than you, but not 6 or above.

If you are in lobby with 5 players, there is no lock - you can be Silver 1 and your friend can be Global Elite, however if you are not teamed with 5 players, you are able to play ONLY if you are with your friend similar rank - the lock is pretty much few ranks. I dont have correct numbers, but for example, if you are Gold Nova 3, and your friend is Legendary Eagle, you are not able to play with him. But if you are Master Guardian 2 and your friend is still Legendary Eagle, you can play with him. I don't know correct numbers, but this is my experience.

    I believe it is a 5 rank difference. – mordi2k Oct 6 '15 at 0:17
  • @mordi2k ye, probably 5 is the rank diference, but who knows ;) – user124182 Oct 6 '15 at 13:22
  • I can confirm the 5 rank difference limit. – Steffo Jun 11 '17 at 11:56

The lvl cap is at 6 ranks, I think.
