Thousands of thousands = millions

The chance of a statistically worse team (given 55% parameter and assuming 200 games played is about .0001%)

Tens of people, not thousands. Tens. Math'd

Before you make ignorant generalizations re elo tier, let me just save you some time and tell you that I don't think tier means anything whatsoever and I'm not necessarily better than a silver. This is purely mathematical and yea

it doesn't have to be the worst team every game in a row.

It can be the worst team simply 66% of the time, and that will be enough to halt advancement.

Being 66% out of 200 is a helluva lot more probable than 100% of 200. Which opens up the door to ALOT more people.

You can't look at only the 1%

You HAVE to take into account the 1%, the 2%, the 3%, the 4%, the 5%, the 6%, the 7%, the 8%, all the way to around 37% to remain throttled by BAD LUCK.
