In this guide, we will explain how to check your Trust Factor while matchmaking on Steam in Counter Strike: Global Offensive (CSGO).
Counter Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) has seen advancements in the 19 years introducing fresh maps, characters, weapons and game modes while staying true to the classic CS elements.
The game has also introduced new weapon skins and a wide selection of knives available for purchase on the Steam marketplace and third-party platforms. These skins come in price ranges starting from as low as $0.03 to tens of thousands of dollars, depending on their rarity.
The Green Trust Factor in CSGO is considered the level of trust within the game. If you have a Green Trust Factor, it means that you have consistently maintained a reputation in the gaming community. Additionally, having Prime Status, which is usually associated with a phone number, greatly influences your level of trustworthiness.
The purpose of the Trust Factor system is to improve matchmaking by connecting players who actively contribute to the community and promote enjoyable gameplay.
What Does Trust Factor Mean in CSGO?
Trust Factor in CSGO is a scoring mechanism created by Valve to determine a player's integrity and reputation within the game’s community. This system considers various factors to assess the trustworthiness of a player.
If your Trust Factor is high, you will be matched with players who also possess a high Trust Factor. On the other hand, if you have a low Trust Factor, you may be paired with players who have low Trust Factors as well.
However, a player's Trust Factor is influenced by several factors, including reports from other players, Prime status eligibility and past cases of cheating.
How to Check Your Trust Factor in CSGO
To start, you should create a group with one or more of your friends in the game. Once your team is formed, you need to queue up for a competitive match. During this stage, you will get a notification about your team's Trust Factor.
If your friend's Trust Factor is lower than yours, you will receive a warning. On the other hand, if your Trust Factor is lower than your friend's, they will receive a warning instead. If none of you receives this warning, it indicates that both you and your friend have a high Trust Score.
The range where your Trust Factor falls will determine the types of players you may come across. With a low score, you may be paired with players who may underperform or even resort to cheating.
Note that if your Trust Factor is low and you feel this isn't accurate, there is a way to address this issue. You need to contact Valve Software by sending an email to [email protected]. In your email, highlight how you have contributed positively to the community and maintained fair play. Do not forget to include your Steam ID in the email to allow the support team to thoroughly investigate the issue.
In CSGO, the Trust Factor system plays a role in preserving integrity, a safe environment and fairness among gamers. With a good Trust Factor, you can fully enjoy every feature that CSGO offers.
