I know the devs recently made an article about why people can be in games with people who they can't queue with because of hidden MMR, but REALLY??? An iron 1 with plat 3's

This makes sense now, its the bug where they are placed lower than intended

Sorry, I'm out and preppin my move to LA(I guess I actually have to move there to work AT Riot :P ).

There was a bug where players ranks were set incorrectly, but it didn't touch their MMR. We saw some games like this during the first week of the Act. Also it could have been a player that tanked placements but was corrected when caught smurfing. I actually don't know how possible it is to get an iron account into plat MMR, before actually getting it hits bronze, so I think this was probably the bug!
