What about people who had already made RaF Smurfs that are level 5, will they still receive punishment for leveling those RaF Smurfs to 10?

Exploiting the Refer-a-Friend program is not only unfair to those summoners who make an honest effort to introduce others to League of Legends, but also detrimental to everyone’s overall experience – particularly when the methods employed can potentially ruin honest players’ games.

This means that our ever-vigilant Fraud Prevention Team will be monitoring the system, ready to pounce on perpetrators of nefarious schemes aimed at acquiring dishonest referrals.


In what way can a "dishonest" referral "potentially ruin honest players' games?" How's that different from playing on a non-referred smurf?

If this is actually enforced, it can be exploited to get anyone banned once you have their referral link. THIS will ruin honest players' games.

Ignore unbalanced champions / Ignore magma chamber / Ignore broken Tribunal / Ignore ELO fail matchmaking / Ignore useless in-game items. Focus on making money. Almost the worst company I've ever seen.

That awkward moment when you remember you smurfed 6 accounts in October to buy your first skin.

Does this only apply to new refer-a-friend accounts?

Does this mean smufing is now bannable?

If so, how do you suggest I play with my lower levelled friends?
