How does Profile Rank and profile rank experience work in CS:GO


Today's update apparently brought some new things, including a new ranking and exp system to each player's profile.

Now I'm curious. How do I level up, and what's the maximum rank? Does this affect competitive stats whatsoever?

Your progression in your matchmaking rank is uninfluenced by your 'experience rank' since your matchmaking rank is based on an elo system. However, winning rounds in competitive matchmaking does contribute directly to your experience rank. Playing casual, arms race, deathmatch, etc all award experience towards your xp rank, but none of these have any bearing on your matchmaking rank.
