There are times when your team will be more at fault than you, but it will always be unhealthy to think about that. I can very much understand if someone is practicing to be a better player and their teammates are essentially ruining their practice. Those emotions should be directed at their inability to solve them (not being in a team, poor matchmaking, or something about the community) rather than other players' skill though. It's not anyone's fault for sucking, really. Deliberate stuff is another matter.
When it comes to casual play? Especially low level, I don't think anyone should ever be blaming a teammate. As long as you and your team are making basic mistakes, it's pointless to measure the gravity of the mistakes against one another. Like, a Roadhog hooking in a D.Va's self destruct. A very simple mistake to make, but can have very grave consequences to the whole team. Another player might make many more very similar sort of mistakes, yet it only results in their own stupid death.
What does that other player think? That they lost because of what the Roadhog did, of course. That they're the better player, and the only thing that held them back was the team, because (as is might be true) all of the other players made worse mistakes.
Basically, the intricate rules of the game punishes some mistakes more than others, and your mistakes were punished less, therefore you're better. Yay? Of course it's not that simple but hopefully the point is clear. I think if you're a perfect player, then you might have a legitimate reason to be upset. Dunning Kruger fits in where how perfect someone thinks they are.
It's a sort of blurring of the truth from my perspective. An immediately appealing way to fake your way to feeling like you're playing well or whatever it is that one is after. It doesn't work, but some people swear by it. It ends up holding them back from improving at some point, because the same blurriness blinds them to the critical problems in their play. It depends on how much they're into self manipulating I guess. My mind always goes to the most extreme cases.
