FACEIT CS2 Elo and skill levels

What is a Skill Level?

Skill levels are directly linked to Elo ratings, which span from 100 to infinity and serve as a reflection of a player's perceived skill and game knowledge. The idea behind pairing players with similar Elo ratings is to create evenly matched-games.

The brackets of Elo differ depending on the game but skill levels range from 1.png to  10.png. The Challenger rank is achieved by the top 1000 players at level 10.
