The gaming community has faced many problems over the years. Some of them technical, some political and others entirely related to the multiplayer experience. Smurfing can be quite annoying for a huge number of players as it’s never fun to play in an unbalanced match. In the current competitive scene, smurfing is sort of the norm, as many pro players often make new accounts to entertain their viewers on stream. The reason they do it? Reportedly the matchmaking pool in the higher ranks is usually rather low and queue wait times are horrific. Smurfing is here to stay for the foreseeable future, just don’t use it as an excuse for your bad plays. For more new check out EarlyGame.
