This is part of a screenshot which is several years old that I sadly lost (it's not faked). I never knew you could be awarded a skill group after only 9 wins.

How is that possible? Did I play so well that the system decided it only needs 9 "samples"?

  • You lose wins when you queue with players that get VAC/OW banned in the future. Could you play 9 games legit, one with a known cheater and get this? – Kevin L Oct 3 '17 at 21:04

The Counter-Strike Wikia states that:

Players without a skill group are limited to two competitive matches that result in wins or draws per day until they are placed in a skill group by winning 10 matches to get a rank (or drawing a match after the 9th win).

I'm assuming that like stated in the parentheses, you won 9 matches, and then got a draw, leading to you getting a rank, as well as, displaying only 9 wins on your profile.

  • This can very well be, although I cannot remember. I don't think the "2 matches per day" rule was in effect back then as well, but I could be wrong. – AyCe Oct 3 '17 at 17:06
