I am asking because in the last days it seems that the community doesn't see it this way. When a low ELO player looks at his rank, he is not like "I play as good at this ELO". No he is blaming the system for it being broken and not realizing that's him that's holding him back.
And when you try to argue with them, they bring up an unlikely scenario and ask you: "How do you carry this?!" I mean if you are struggling to improve, then you should be the first one you should be looking on, shouldn't you?
