The first details about the new matchmaking system CSR of Counter Strike 2 (cs2) have been revealed, aiming to replace third-party services like FACEIT or ESEA. This new system is based on a complete overhaul of the Premier game mode, and we’ll let you know what to expect with CSR and the Seasons.
What’s It About? In the past few weeks, the developers of Counter Strike 2 (cs2) have been preparing for the upcoming release. First, testers were able to enjoy the new Loadout system. Now, one of the recent updates has introduced the new matchmaking system “Counter Strike Rating” to beta testers. Skillful data miners have dug even deeper, and we’re stitching together the pieces of information for you.
Counter Strike 2 (cs2) is Getting a New Matchmaking System CSR
In this revamped approach, the game’s lobby will display a complex representation of the current map pool. Here, you’ll see precise statistics about your recent achievements, the latest matches on different maps. The showcased metrics include:
- Total number of wins
- Win rate per map
- Comprehensive global win rate
How It Works: One of the central features of this new matchmaking system is the introduction of the Counter-Strike Rating (CSR), serving as a comprehensive indicator of a player’s skill level. The CSR of Counter Strike 2 (cs2) is divided into seven new ranks. The scale starts at 00.00, and each increase of five points marks a change in the visual rarity of the rank, similar to cosmetic items in the game. And so, the new matchmaking ranks in CS 2 are divided as follows:
- Common (Gray)
- Uncommon (Light Blue)
- Rare (Dark Blue)
- Mythic (Purple)
- Legendary (Pink)
- Ancient (Red)
- Exceptional (Gold)
|Common (Gray)||00.00 to 09.26|
|Uncommon (Light Blue)||09.27 to 10.69|
|Rare (Dark Blue)||10.70 to 19.82|
|Mythic (Purple)||19.83 to 21.34|
|Legendary (Pink)||21.35 to 29.29|
|Ancient (Red)||29.30 to 30.09|
|Exceptional (Gold)||30.10 to 35.00|
This new CSR system appears to have no upper limit. This might indicate that the developers are heading in a similar direction as the private server provider FACEIT, which offers a completely separate ranking system and locked servers from normal matchmaking.
