When you start doing matchmaking, even if you're not a high rank, always keep yourself motivated by keeping tabs of your score or objectives. Regardless of rank, your primary (and perhaps only) objective every game should be to get better at the game. This does not mean your objective is to "rank up" or your objective is to win that game, it simply means your objective is to get better. While rank might be the only truly measurable system in which you can definitively say whether the matchmaking system thinks you're better or worse, in reality you should be able to tell when you're improving, you shouldn't need a dumb little icon to do it for you.
Let's say you're at a 0 / 0 / 6 score but you planted / defused a couple of bombs and you have the same score as a guy that is 3 / 0 / 0, that should mean you're on the right path, never think that if you have a bad score or if you're not top fragging for the team you're not good, because CSGO is not only about fragging, it's about objective controls, the people that control the site / vision of site / vision of the bomb will always have a big advantage. Always keep in mind when you're in Matchmaking that Objectives are over Kills. Let's say you're a Counter-Terrorist and you have the bomb near you, don't leave it there and go hunt the people left, defend the dropped bomb, eventually a Terrorist will come to pick it up. Or as a Terrorist it's not always about the Rushes into certain sites, you can wait till 0:35 - 0:25 to storm a site but we'll get to this in another guide I'll be doing soon.
Also a big and important role is to help out the team and keep them motivated. Let's say you're in a losing spree of 3 - 4 rounds, motivate them, tell them something good like guys pull it together we can win this. Morale is a very important thing especially when you're trying to win games at your own skill level. Don't get distracted by people who blame each other, motivate them by pointing out certain location on the map where they should move / keep. If they can't hold / attack a site, try something else, change something in their playstyle it always helps.
Some people can't stand washed out colors. I recommend play only at evening/night in dark room. It is not best for human eye probably but it makes the game look way more saturated because in daytime all colors in rooms are more saturated than the game. Motivate them in talking with each other and giving information when they see the bomb carrier or when they see a CT off position, even when they die every piece of information is important and could mean a round won. Don't play if you are angry - you will rush, die and then, you will be even more angry.
Help your team by donating weapons, if you have a large amount of cash and they are kind of low, buy a teammate a weapon, even if you don't know him. He can win the round for you with that weapon, greed is not a good thing in CSGO. Don’t jump to conclusions about hit reg and hackers. MM has an epidemic of people who lose pistol round and instantly begin to complain about crappy 64 tick servers and hackers on the other team. Is it possible they just got a lucky shot on you or have better aim? Absolutely. The only thing complaining like this does is put your team in a bad mindset. Hold off on the hacking accusations and hit reg complaints. If you think they are hacking, report them and let overwatch do it’s job.
Some people don't have a mic to communicate so encourage them to use the ingame radio, it always helps when you hear "I need Backup", "Spotted the bomb carrier" or " Sector Clear". Buy as a team. Get in the simple habit of pressing tab at the end and beginning of the round and checking your teams economy. Too many times someone is unaware of their teammates and buys an AWP when everyone else has $2,400. Don’t be “that guy”. Just press tab and talk with your team about who is buying what.
