Gold Nova Master is the lowest rank to be closer to Global Elite than it is to Silver 1, making it a good achievement for players to make. Players around this rank will be expected to know basic smokes for most of the main maps and should be able to control spray patterns well on the AK-47 and M4.
Being a Gold Nova Master puts you in the top 41.47% of all CS:GO players. That means, if you were placed in a room with 100 other players, you'd probably be able to beat 58 of them. Total CS:GO thinks that..
"This is the last rank in the Gold Nova series and is definitely a good rank for casual/intermediate players that have some experience with CS:GO. Most players in this rank have over 400 hours. It is very unlikely for players to receive this rank as a starting rank (unless they've played with friends)."
