Nope, it's not, it was "way way way way way higher than "average or a bit higher" " in 2015 and earlier 2016. In short:
In 2016 some semi-pros had 1800-2200 elo, nowadays most of semi-pros have 3k-5k elo, so the average dudes had 1400-1800 elo, nowadays those dudes have 2k-3k elo.
Same with mm actually. In 2014 there was like 1 Global on 100000 players, nowadays it's more like 1 Global on 1000+ players.
