He either A) had more difficult matches (better players)
or B) Previously achieved a higher rank than you, which seems to be the case

What Link is saying makes sense. If you were good enough to be Stvicious, Westrice, or HotShotGG then you would be probably in the Gold division. But I highly doubt you would be playing them in those matches.

If you had a season two rank then that was used as a "soft" base. Also the system can't give everyone the same level players so you general got lower MMR players to play then your friend. Also the early matches have a greater impact. Like if your first match is against mostly silver 4 and you lose your next one will be something like bronze 3 you win that so the system thinks you're in between silver 4 and bronze 3 so you get some bronze 1 and win and so you get low level silvers again. Your wins that first game against silver 4 players so he plays some silver 1 players wins again so he gets gold 4 in the next match wins so the sytem gives him gold 1 players he loses so the system thinks hes between gold 4 and gold 1

You both went 2 wins one 1 loss but hes mid gold and your low silver
