Not really? At least I don't think so.

You know, I don' t know the answer to that. I think instinctively I would hit punish though.

Admitting to it might be in poor tastes, but there is plenty of talk about 'smurf' accounts on the forums themselves, and Riot takes no actions against them.

The game is free to play, so they're not really losing anything by allowing multiple accounts...

They're already punishing themselves by not playing on their main account to avoid getting banned. How much different is this then starting a new account after getting perma-banned?

It's like they're banning themselves.

The truth is (perhaps part of the reason Riot can't and/or won't do anything about it) that people are liars. And I know what you all may be thinking "Why would someone lie about that?" For the pure and simple reason it makes them "badasses." EXTRA emphasis on the quotes on that. They break the rules they live on the edge. Also you may notice that more than half of them their "main account" was Diamond ranked or some other such nonsense.

I'm sure some of them really are telling the truth. They had a Diamond account that got banned. But seriously most of these people are full of it.
