I'm going to feel like a jerk for doing this, but what about Phantoml0rd? He plays on his girlfriend's account "heyitsmary" every night for his lessons and duo queue while streaming. Not only that, but he charges ridiculous money for the lessons he's providing. In effect, not only is he carrying the people he's teaching, he's sharing accounts and charging people for carrying them in the amount of time they pay to play with him.

I know he has a very large following and donations are fine, but I believe his lessons are upwards of $50 an hour.

I just find it strange that he's based a business around carrying people and trying to raise their elo and he hasn't even been mentioned by a Riot post.

this would mean he's boosting one account. of course that's wrong, but Riot's initial goal is surely to catch the people doing it on a large scale. his lessons and what he charges for them are absolutely irrelevant here.

and of course there is nothing wrong with duo Qing, only that he is using an account other than his own. not that i know whether he is or not, i dunno how he does his lessons at all

keep playing on your account and don't let anyone else play on your account and you will have no problems

What about when you play on a Smurf, will these accounts be seen as doing above average and be culled? It's not as intentional as you might think, I just made another account because I wanted to be able to help all the new player's I'm meeting in real life adjust to the game, without queing with them when I'm 30 and their level 3. It wouldn't be right forcing 3 level 3s into a game with level 20s to get smashed. And what about taking a friend's account under your wing after they've left the game? Is this considered against the terms of use? Thanks for any and all replies!
