I don't see this at all. Yeah, I have games where one person loses us the game, but I've also definitely had games where one person wins us the game (often times bottom lane). I had games like these in SR, too.
It isn't really that hard to carry your team to victory - obviously a 100% winrate is impossible but I've been hovering at 55% in blind pick solo queue and that, theoretically, should keep me moving upward.
When I man up and run bottom for my team, I've got a 70% winrate with AD Malz. 70%
, just for running a good bottom laner bot instead of whoever gets talked into it at the fountain.
If you're a good player I don't think soloing to your correct Elo would be a problem.
