Last season in both 1v1 and 2v2, I was mid-low platinum (mostly from not playing ladder at all), and I was matching up against around that same MMR at the time.
So, in my 1v1 placement match, I drone-rush a Protoss on Antiga Shipyard (A matchup I hate, and a map I despise, this was before they locked cross spawns... why the hell not?). I win. And I get demoted to Rock-bottom Gold.
In my 2v2 placement match, I tried to snipe one of my favorite streamers (NOT stream cheat, I don't go that far) that I happen to be a mod in their chat for, a masters cannon rusher doing 2v2's with a friend of his... me being a glutton for punishment and such :p
I wasn't able to snipe him, so I quit the placement match. My partner loses. And I get promoted to Diamond.
So, in 2 matchups where I have basically the same MMR, I get demoted when I win a game, and promoted when I lose a game. If I may ask, what the hell kind of logic is that?

Last season in 1v1 you were low plat and lost more than you won. So you got demoted. Sounds right.
That doesn't make you low gold, points reset. Read up on how the ladder works before posting about it.
A placement match has no special weighting towards promotion. Find out how the ladders work.
It isn't hard for a gold/plat player to make diamond in team games.
