So being new, it is very discouraging, seems almost everyone is a smurf..it is expected that everyone even at level 1 knows all the ins and outs of the game...


why....?

Because some people are bad and need to beat on new players to feel good about themselves. Matchmaking will usually sort it out though after they play a bunch.

I know that I'll smurf when I have a new friend that joined the game so as to not put them against a bunch of level 30's, but continue playing with them.

However I don't expect my team to be at level 30 standards either, so meh.

people make smurf accounts because when you reach a higher level (Level 30) the games get harder and they hate that.. so they make new accounts and that will be easier gameplay for them, which to refer as Smurfs. Its bad for new players, i know it frustrates me too, while i'm still trying to learn.

Or some people who have done very bad things that got their main accounts suspended or banned.
