Awsome job guys.

Now assuming you were able to group these boosted acounts together with these streamers by im guessing IP or chat logs. Can you do the same thing to fight against smurfs so that we have a steady flow of new player base instead of people being screwed over by these high elo smurfs.

Hey Yegg, I'm gonna go ahead and post this regardless of the fact that I'm probably gonna get severely downvoted but is there any way to report a player who admits to elo boosting in pre-game lobby? Recently ran into a summoner, WickeD by name, who was elo boosting by playing TF mid and was quite an amazing player, but openly admitted to elo boosting. I played against him, and then with him, and both times his team won pretty much due only to his playing as TF.
What can be done against players like this???

They probably have logs of which IPs people log in from and stuff. If this is the case, the odds are 0.

Smurfs are okay as players that are genuinely smurfing act no different than a new player to ranked could if they had the skill. They will quickly climb up close to their true Elo rating and it won't be a problem.
