you are lucky, i play with 0iq people against at least 3 smurfs every game
if you play free faceit then F
ppl from mm went to free faceit after they got kicked out from prime when cs stopped the free to play prime kkkkk
Get premium, otherwise stick to MM, free faceit is a joke
thanos effect, you need a faceit to get all the good players out of mm,
all there is now is smurfs and cheaters,
its up to valve for the last 2
Don't really know what's the situation there in NA like, but I'd say it's decent on EU at least. Also I think your level might affect what kind of people you have to play with, since at higher levels you are less likely to come across trolls.
Either way I want to wish you good luck with your future pugs and I'm sure you'll start racking up some wins in no time. :)
Sadly you can't do anything about low elo games, you just need to carry their asses even if they're trolling or leaving the game, the best solution would be to search for people to play with, make a stack and play faceit until you get more elo like level 8 and than u can grind alone.
Do not buy faceit prem it's too toxic, the players think they know the game even when they're level 5 and in high elo 3000+ elo they're more people in prem who would troll u if u didn't do what they said than in low elo games without prem.
So after u get high elo u shouldn't buy faceit prem unless u want to play the fpl-c qual.
I saw some comments about esea being bad but, esea is clearly better if u want to play solo-q, u can get good players in ur team even if you have low rank, and u can play againts good players, playing againts good players is good for u but it depends if u can handle the fact that u will get smashed from time to time.
The problem at esea is the fact that u're waiting a lot to get a game.
In europe I was waiting 20-30 minutes for a game in the morning.
+ u can make money pretty easy on ESEA with the monthly ladderboard from ur devision.
