I've been doing my placements with a friend of mine and one match we had gotten loss prevented. Initially I thought it wouldn't count towards our placement matches but after taking a look at it it seemed that it did count as a lost game. Now I want to know if this is intensional or is it supposed to not count at all or count as a tie or something.

A loss prevented doesn't count towards your hidden MMR (MatchMaking Ranking), but i count as a game. I know this is weird, but you can just forgot the loss prevented game. It doesn't count towards your final score!

It is prevented, because your MMR is the same.
