TERMS OF USE AGREEMENT (TOU), subsection [V. CODE OF CONDUCT|Statement H] states that the following is an example of behavior that warrants disciplinary measures;
"Participating in any action which, in the sole and exclusive judgment of Riot Games, "exploits" an undocumented aspect of the Game in order to secure an unfair advantage over other users;"

The "exploit" in said argument is as follows;

The player has exploited the undocumented aspect of the game in which it never documents that any player may own more that one account.

This leaves new players at a disadvantage as they possess limited knowledge of the game, hence exploiting the terms of this agreement.

It's not about whether you believe smurfing is wrong, its about what Riot believes. Many Rioters have smurf accounts, many Rioters know pro-gamers have smurf accounts, and I don't think they mind at all.

Well the tribunal bans players who start new accounts so their own system is therefore contributing to the breach of terms

I care because many of my freinds who join have resisted to play because they can't win a game at lower levels.

I know it isn't what I believe, still if it breaches the TOU that they themselves wrote, then why don't they do something about it.

Also, many things before have changed in LoL because the community wanted it to, I know riot staff want to make the game enjoyable for everyone, and this is why they should.

Don't go around saying it breaches the ToU when it is at the sole and exclusive judgment of Riot Games

Playing Dota extensively before playing LoL is now against the ToS
