Ranking up
I just can't seem to rank up. I've played both online and offline, did the tutorial, fiddled with settings... but I can't rank up at all.
And then there's the absurd lag I get while playing online. No game I've played before gives me such amount of lag.

I'd really like to enjoy this game, but the game itself's making it hard :(

Why do you want to rank up so much? Most important is unlocking weapons and I believe you have to be in an official server to do either.

Seriously if there is lag in a server that doesn't advance your rank, it is either the server providers fault or your fault :) you cant blame a game for lag. These tools should help you determine, or at least narrow down, the causes of lag:

Normally, I have good ratings at both of those sites (by good, I mean the site telling me "yeah, you can play online just fine")
it is the case here, too.

It might've been the server, as others in it were complaining about it.

However, that's the first time I've heard of weapon unlocking being limited to official servers. How do I differentiate between an official server and an unofficial one? I didn't even know there were "official" servers :/

Thanks for the help (:

Here's what ranks you up: a server with a minimum of 6 players (or is it 8?), that enables leveling (most do) and is VAC-enabled (tick in server filter). You only get rank up from kills and assists.

Playing offline and the tutorial won't rank you up.

Thing is, I've met those requirements time and time again, and unless I need to kill in the hundreds to go from rank 0 to 1, then something went wrong. :/
