Question about Promotional matchup

I just finished my BO5 match for gold tier promotion to Platinum and I have just one question. Is it normal to go up against people 2 tiers higher then your current tier? Each game in the BO5 had at least 2 diamond tier and the rest were platinum. It would make sense to be matched up against platinum players since Im trying to get into there but DIAMOND players in the 2200 area???

I think yes. Just had a game where team was bronze, im silver against silver enemies up to two tiers higher. Promotion might be trying to see if you can carry your team
