They take it in relation of ticks and fps and refresh rate.
What you have to realise is:
64 rate, 300 fps and 144 Hz is still 64,
128 rate, 300 fps and 60 hz is still 60,
128 rate, 100 fps and 120 Hz is still only 100
Majority (95% at least) of todays players are wannabes that have no idea how PC's work, how game engines work, how to install drivers, optimize system write a config and that IPS, although it looks gorgeous, is really not suitable for FPS games. These are the ones MM is for. It amazes me how many threads are here weekly on "what PC" and "why so low fpzzz" and "what config". The other 5% are us hardcore gamers that actually have a clue and are going to invest time and money in a system and connection that won't let us down.
I'd love mm in 1.6, or even CSS, would deffo play. Used to try ESL Versus, but waiting for 45 minutes for a game wasn't my thing. Only playing dota nowadays or Faceit, when I'm in too good mood and need something to put me back in misery.
