Good sir, us over here on the british isles believe your maths to be inaccurate. You see, if you solo queue there is an 80% chance of having a gifted player on your team carry you. If you duo queue, you have two baddies on your team given, and thus only a 60%
chance of having a gifted player.
I'm sure you'll correct this in no time at all. Pip pip cheerio.
