Plat easier than Gold?

I've finally broken back into Plat this season on my main after struggling for like over 200 games going between Gold 2 and Gold 1. 25 games later im already in my Plat 3 promos. Is Plat just easier? I find that the people are better and know how to play better, but are little bit more unstable (mentally). Lots of "GG, ff" after 3 mins, talking shit in all chat and toxicity from early on but they play well. just my experience?
