This is the age old question that come into play with every form of matchmaking. The bottom line is it all averages out, sure you might get some bad games that are unwinnable no matter what you do but in the end if you improve faster than average your ranking will go up and if you improve slower than the average your ranking will go down over time.

The feeling that matchmaking is unfair is due to psychological bias, people tend to remember the bad players in their game when they do well more than they remember the good players in their game when they do poorly. Some games you carry and some games you get carried and you tend to think you did better in the games that you got carried than you actually did because your team set you up for success.
