Do things done on smurfs affect your main account?

Just wondering, as I see people that say they are smurfing in ranked, and verbally abuse on their smurfs. Does reporting them do anything to their main accounts or only on the smurf?

Riot staff have at least once traced smurf accounts to a main and permabanned the lot.

That was an incredibly toxic player that made even Pendragon go draconic if memory serves me correctly.

rather hard to quote, but yes they CAN find mains and link them to smurfs:

I'll be suspending that account shortly, and encouraging the OP to no longer play League of Legends.

Yes they will. So don't make a smurf just to be a jerk. Please.

That was an extreme example though. In most cases, even in permaban cases, accounts are considered separated and even have Riot's blessing that they don't continue their behavior on their other accounts.

accounts are linked to different emails and such, so unless you make a riot employee mad to such a great extent, Smurfs and mains are different players entirely unless streamed or shown to mods with some method

Not true

If you state in chat that you dont care about a ban becasue this isnt your main...then you have opened the door to a trace and action taken on every account associated with your IP. The trace takes only a second and more times than not, the email addresses associated with accounts will be similar enough to confirm a 99% chance that the player plays both accounts, thus justifying action on both.

Like with intentional feeding, if you go 1-10 you might not be punished, but if you go 1-10 while saying you are going to feed, then you get punished.
