For those of us flying solo I definitely think the ranked system is broken and not a direct reflection of personal skill.
Let us assume the following two statements:
1) You do not go AFK, feed, or refuse to communicate
2) Your attitude does not make people more likely than average to go AFK, feed, or stop communicating
In that case, by simple common sense, it's obvious that the other team is 25% more likely than your team is to have someone who 'makes the game unwinnable'. Now, don't think that I'm calling you a liar, perhaps indeed you DO end up with a lot more AFK people on your team than people who go AFK on the other team: that's entirely possible. But guess what? The ONLY
possible explanation for that is that one of the original two assumptions is false.
